define your maximum bet. It should not be more than
five units, but it can be as few as two units. we
suggest staying with a one unit bet if you lose,
no matter what the other players did on the prior
round, but aggressive bettors may wish to bet up
even on a loss.
I suggest a stop-loss point of six units. When you
are down by six units, then it is time to go. This
means that you could get forced out of this game
after losing two hands in succession if you are
betting three units on each hand.
The best way to bet in a strong game with Ride the
Bias is to take your table stake of six units and
divide it into three stacks of two units each. These
stacks represent three bets of two units each. This
is the way you start. If the game turns sour right
away (you lose three bets in a row), you're out
of the game. If you chop back and forth with these
three bets over half to a full shoe, you can stay
in the game or exit-your choice. You may wish to
revert to the basic betting strategy described earlier.
But once you start winning, and in many games you
will because you've qualified the table as a winning
table with dealer-breaking activity, this is where
the fun begins. Use your win to increase the size
of the three stacks evenly, beginning with the leftmost
stack (you're betting from the rightmost stack).
So the stacks increase evenly, first to three chips
then to four, five, and so on. As your stacks increase,
your maximum bet increases, so now you can bet three
units, for example, when three more players win
than lose on the prior round.
