The Problem with the Martingale System (by Vsauce)

Featured Comment

Greetings, Stakers! 😎

Vsauce 1, 2 and 3 have always been among my favorite YouTube channels, and for a good reason, they have a high quality content and a variety of topics that they cover daily. I bumped into this one just by accident and it drew my attention just with the video art, since those cards are so unique and colorful 😁 It is a bit lengthy one, but I promise you - totally worth it! Not only it touches the topic of the flaws of Martingale system, explains the simple "maths" behind it, plays plain Blackjack in the video, but it also shows this funny lil' fella robot, called Vector, which I now desperately want to have!!! 🙈 

Enjoy!!! 🍀

yes, imo it is better to play an equal bet rather than progressive bet on blackjack. because 1. you will hit the limit eventually (either casino cap or max amount of your balance) 2. to get most out of blackjack you need to both play split and double, which will screw your martingale plan since if you lose, the next bet must be 4x, and you can't do a 4x bet if it is your semi-last bet

Yeah, he disected the strategy a bit, touched probabilities and losing streaks, so it was really fun to watch 😁😎

Bojana wants a bot in her house.

Desperately.

Hmmm, lets see, is there some bot available in Stake to fulfill that need ?

Yeah, I love Michael the most, Vsauce1, but they are all okay, they touch the subjects of psychology, science, math, technology, basically everything that is interesting to explore 😁

This video is awesome! Thank you for sharing! I used to watch Vsauce all the time, but stopped after his videos became too long. Good memories of him, and an excellent explanation :)

They are worth it, despite being lengthy 😉

Well, you have Chatbot that is very talkative if you like that.

Tipbot that has a lot of moneyyy, and that can be an important detail.

And Rainbot that is very very generous with everybody.

It is a nice strategy to win some cash, but there is a risk to loose everything. A 11 loose streak would literally rip all your money 💀

It is a nice strategy if one knows when to stop, I guess! :D

Like people said about martingale. 

I don't really like martingale system if you don't have enough money to bet. 

Well I got 9 times of unluckiest strike of bust. So, martingale easily bust my money. 

I would believe feeling that lead me to the win or busted 😅

Heck yes!  Everybody who's been burned by the Martingale, raise your hands!!! ***i'm imagining a sea of hands in the air***

Martingale is a decent idea if your bankroll is enormous and you start very small with bets. But sooner or later, you will get burned hard. 

More often than not, it is for a small/modest win.  It's easier to bet based on probabilities and adjusting your bet based on current winning vs losing streak.

Was trawling through YouTube when I stumbled across this. I think it’s a valuable resource for understanding the problems with the martingale strategy.

@Dan, I know we're twins and all, but check the OP 😁😘

Also, I want Vector for my bday, can this be done? 😁😎

The more the reason why this is a bad idea if you don't have an unlimited bank roll 😁

What's the longest red streak you got so far? 😉

@ScooterPi, tell us your secret, what works for you the best? 😎 Also, when is the red alert to stop? How do you determine this? 😁

Who got 20x lose streak on blackjack? He must be really bad on blackjack :/. Even my lose streak is only around 5-10.
