I am confused and would appreciate any insight into how a game like blackjack, where sometimes the odds pay more than 1:1 affect this system?

Eventually you will get blackjack, which pays 3:2 which should increase the winning chances right?

Of course, given unlimited time and limited money you will mathematically still eventually lose everything.

The biased random walk which is what you're talking about has a positive chance of going to infinity and never reaching zero.

So the given calculations do not look right.

So all up he ends up with average of 0.

It does not make moeny.

In 150 turns, there is a 70.

You see there are 36 possible combinations of dice, 17 of which win you money and 19 of which where you lose money.

Sure you could get a very unlucky streak but the odds are in your favor to win.

Progression betting would be mute because you could use the to win even more money.

The blackjack strategy martingale you have said don't exist.

I'm not sure of exactly how the Wikipedia stands on howtos.

Is there any reason why this should not be merged into the main article?

Like warning to some gambling addicts that this will not work.

This is one of the best betting strategies on roulette and works pretty good if you find a high limit table somewhere.

You can't ever have positive expected value on an unbiased roulette table.

It's a statement of fact.

But it's best just to let the idiots who think they can win at roulette using Martingale or anything find it out the hard way.

I would easily try this out once as soon as I have a companion that could lend me any amount of money for a very short period of time without interest.

I would pay him back everything within a minute or so—guaranteed.

It's risk free for him and it's risk free for me—and yet I know I will win the amount I want.

Am I really an idiot then?

With any real amount of money, you have a chance to lose it all.

No the only catastroph that can happen is if I lose all money I have and have to stop playing.

But this never happens here because I can always get a cheque with the amount I need written on it so that I can continue to play.

And I know also that I wil win pretty soon.

I will never experience 100 losses in a row for example.

Ponder that for a while.

But this never happens here because I can always get a blackjack strategy martingale with the amount I need written on it so that I can continue to play.

Your credit rating must be astronomic.

I will never experience 100 losses in a row for example.

And it's so much more likely that you'll win a single paltry buck, after all.

With "infinite wealth", you can keep doubling your bet each time and you will eventually hit a win and recoup your losses; therefore with infite wealth you win on average.

But without infinite wealth, you will eventually lose.

I will play it only once as I said.

Yes this is unlikely but it makes the math correct and if we're playing infinites let's play infinites.

Surely you have your own which you can gamble with?

Or would you just like to ensure that if you do lose, somebody else pays?

But that doesn't matter because I will pay him back within a minute.

My question is if I'm really an idiot if I want to play given that the conditions I specify are fulfilled?

I would in fact play and I don't think I'm an idiot.

So in a thought experiment where there is no maximum stake you would not be an idiot for using this strategy.

Your original question was "does this strategy really require infinite wealth to pull off"?

The answer is yes.

If you do not have some infinite source of wealth to wager with then this is a losing system.

The guy lending me money does this risk-free.

This means that he easily can lend me more money than what he actually has.

If the casino accepts cheques for example I can literally gamble without limit and without risk of losing.

In practice I know, in addition, that I will never have to double my stake more than say 30 times.

This ensures that the gamble will be not only finite in time but very short.

So where is the supposedly required infinitude in wealth?

As we know that no one ever will go to the bank with our cheques to cash them in we don't have to have any money at all on our bank account.

We can write any amount on them risk free anyway.

In fact, it's the very property that we can write any amount that guarantees that we can write any amount.

If there is a limit we can't write anything without losing in the long run, at least in theory.

It could still be so improbable that we would lose that we could safely ignore that case.

You are saying that you don't need infinite wealth to execute the strategy, because you are able to write infinite checks that don't actually represent real wealth.

I think the problem with this discussion is jumping back and forth between 'in practice' and 'in theory'.

In practice, no casino would allow you to wager more than some secured amount that they can reasonably expect to collect from you.

You would always be limited by your credit, even if the table did not have explicit limits.

In theory, you have constructed a game in which you are writing down numbers that don't represent real wealth, and the imaginary casino accepts those numbers, even though they don't represent actual wealth.

So yes, in that constructed scenario, you don't need infinite wealth.

You don't even need any money to play at all, you can just write numbers on a piece of paper to play.

But that's not an interesting scenario.

It doesn't prove anything.

It's like saying that you can prove that everything is free as long as you stipulate that you infinite credit.

But not even in theory we need infinite wealth to use the strategy as you claim, all we need is unlimited wealth.

Anhyway, two things happen to the situation when we go from 'theory' to 'practice,' that actually cancel out.

In practice there are always limits to wealth of course, but in practice there are also always limits to a losing sequence with a 50% chance of losing every time.

The problem with your reasoning is that you take the first practical limit into account but not the second.

In addition I've added an extra detail that can be done in practice, the possibility to temporarily fool the casino.

That can in practice be accomplished in many ways.

I could have hacked the security system so that my visa card always said yes for example.

The point is that I know that this strategy is risk free.

I will never be charged any astronomical sum of money as I know for sure I will win in the end.

Remember I will use this strategy in practice only ONCE.

And of course i can use real money as my first stake.

Infinite doesn't mean it is Infinity; continue reading means without bound, bigger than whatever you have.

How much money do you need?

That's without bound, and that IS infinity.

Infinity comes in many different flavors and one major divide is between actual infinities and merely potential infinity that even most finitists accept.

What we need here is clearly not any actual infinity.

In fact, we don't even need potential infinity.

The reason is that in practice I know, for sure, that I will never lose more than say 100 times in a row.

It will simply never happen.

No, this is in fact not the case.

We can be absolutely certain that events with very small probabilities never will happen anywhere in our universe.

This observation is used in statistical physics for example.

This, of course, doesn't mean that these events have infinitely small probabilities in any mathematical sense of the word.

For the mathematician any finite number is as far from infinity as the number one.

Since you use statistical physics as your example, the general rule "entropy tends to increase" is in general true but entropy can and does decrease by chance; just not very often.

There is a positive probability that any broken thing an egg, a cup, a window, or whatever will spontaneously go back to once piece again.

Yet, it will never ever happen.

Fluctuations in entropy increase are not improbable at all—on the contrary.

It follows from statistical interpretation of classical law.

You don't need complicated stat equations to prove to yourself that this does indeed work.

There are basically two main factors in determing how much you'll win.

You can choose when you stop playing.

Therefore, if you won or break even, you can stop.

It depends on how much money you start with.

Case 1 is FAR more likely than case 2but since we know the house has an advantage, the expected winnings are negative, if only slightly.

This also applies to everything INic has been saying.

The fact is that things with very small probabilities CAN happen in reality.

A fair roulette wheel in Brazil once spun red 32 times in a row.

That was at a probability of 0.

There is also no reason entropy cannot decrease given enough time.

For systems larger than a few picograms, the second law of thermodynamics is typically true to within a few parts per million, but notice that it is not EXACTLY perfect ALL of the time.

There is no arbitrary barrier the universe sets on low probability events.

In direct response to INic, you cannot be absolutely certain very small but finite probability events will never occur in the universe.

No, you can't always get a cheque with the amount needed.

No real person has an infinite amount of credit available to them.

No matter how you slice it, the value blackjack sport classic mens watch a dollar invested at the roulette wheel is around 97 cents.

Yes, Martingale does not change EV.

But, other Roulette techniques can.

Roulette is a NEGATIVE EXPECTANCY GAME - every time you bet on a number you are betting into a negative return in the long run.

In practice casinos couldnt care less about Martingale or any other theory.

It seems people here simply don't get that.

It doesn't help that the article is poorly written either.

There are mathematical proofs on the merge page that show why it won't work for gambling, there is also the which shows that the optimum bet for a game with a house edge is negetive ie be the house or don't bet at all.

These are 100% mathematical proved and verified.

Of course Martingale will always be popular and has been since medieval times.

It would be more plausible to merge this into that article.

There is a "mergeinto" template for that purpose.

I'd only merge this one if the third one was merged too.

Otherwise, since this is so wildly different than the probability article it should also be kept separate.

Anyway, if the paradix one is merged too, that seems best.

Then, you could take out all the uncited stuff and make it into a useful side comment.

They're all on the Martingale system, and merging would make the information easier to access.

It can and should be added to the Martingale as it only an implementation of this theory.

You can always redirect hits to this page back to the main one.

And I agree, this is an implementation of the theory.

I found this article in searching this exact topic.

I had not heard of the name of the theory, only the method of essentially doubling one's bet upon sequential losses.

Had it been merged with the other topic, I likely would not have found it, much less realized the correlation between the two.

Keep I agree with his keep.

Many people do not know it as the 'martingale' but as the 'double up' system or progression betting etc.

As I understand it, readers here fall into two quite different groups mathematicians and gamblers and consequently they expect two quite different accounts of the matter.

The Martingale probability theory article contains much that is written as statistics and probability equations, and is unintelligible to many readers without advanced study of such systems.

It is not incorrect, it simply does not explain exactally what a session is, but obviously it needs re-writting.

They claimed that had there not been a margin call, they would have made it all back in a few months, a frequent martingale claim.

Feel free to improve it.

On an unrelated note, does anyone know the origin of the term "martingale", and how it's related to this betting system?

It claims that the expected profit is.

The formula only assumes that the player wins once here stops playing.

As an example, note tha the current formula shows the correct payoff if there are consistent losses on all x plays, but does not show the correct payoff if there are consistent gains on all x plays.

The correct way to show the expected payoff of a martingale involves combinatorics and the series of corresponding payoffs and probabilities.

Luckily, the series can be reduced to a closed-form solution.

I think you have totally missunderstood the formula.

Having a combination of the payoffs and probabilities is impossible, because it will be infinite if the player has infinite money.

That is why the formula includes how much they have.

Martingale is very simple, you are trying to win 1 unit, risking all of your money to do it.

It doesnt matter how many times you do this.

It is comparing a loss per round with a loss per roll and indicating that there is a difference in the edge.

Martingale makes no difference to edge.

This is just stupid absolutistic idealistic analysis of a situation where you play for an infinite amount of time.

Well, duh, Einstein, how is that possible in real life?

Gambling is by definition not risk-free.

This is an alright strategy : -- 21:45, 30 May 2008 UTC Well, yes, it is true that this strategy usually results in positive payouts if one plays for brief periods of time and only leaves immediately after a win.

However, this strategy sometimes leads to catastrophic losses, and the net effect of these catastrophic losses outweighs the net effect of the meager winnings assuming a house edge.

This doesn't need to be idealized to infinite time played, but merely shows that the Martingale system doesn't improve your pot odds.

However, most of the time the exact opposite is true if one takes a realistic utility function into account, for example to a high degree, making the Martingale system WORSE than a system where one bets the same amount on every play.

And no matter what, in terms of mathematical expectancy, the Martingale system changes nothing.

It would have similar risks and would risk the catastrophic failure point quicker, but adds the possibility of reward rather than just breaking even.

The reason the doubling up principle doesn't work is because you only win your initial wager on each losing streak.

But when you finally hit a losing streak you can not maintain with your bankroll you lose your initial wager an exponential amount of times.

Your winnings need to also increase exponentially to make up for such large losses and in this way multiple losing streaks will actually earn you more than what you lose.

Do the math, it doesn't lie.

Don't be fooled that nothing will work.

The casinos know this very well so they have to institute an effective limit to minimise this while still maintaining one large enough to accomodate a wide enough range of low to high stakes gamers.

There are plenty of gambling forums where you can post phony gambling systems.

He never asked for a guarantee but for the possibility of a reward.

The universe is not the static place it was once thought to be.

Recent discoveries have led many to believe there's always some order within and some have even gone as far as to mention that every atom may be governed by one universal mathematic formula.

This is not the place to discuss POV arguments of what's phony and what is not.

Nobody ever gave anybody a guarantee but I do think my last sentence summed it up nicely, if it wasn't possible there would be no need for casinos to have such overly restrictive betting ranges.

That is all I'm going to say to someone not interested in learning something new, it is certainly no hair of my back what you believe, I am comfortable where I am and I guess you must also be comfortable where you are.

For anybody who is interested in learning they should note that all computer generated random numbers are by nature not truely random and only pseudo random by a varying degree.

It makes no sense to populate every tray with every size chip.

So, they are segregated to a degree.

If you wish to discuss gambling systems, there are many forums available.

That's five billion dollars.

Can anyone see any problems with this theory???

You're right, but there's nothing special about this betting strategy that allows this.

Simply betting a dollar on a fair coin flip enough times will ensure that you will eventually win some fixed arbitrary amount.

This phenomenon is called recursion, and is fairly common.

However I can't prove that this is true mathematically, is anyone here an expert who can tell me if I'm wrong?

Assuming an infinite number of players, several of them will have losing streaks longer than their life spans.

If you were able to give me some general formula for it I would be very thankful.

Or just link me some site with explanation how to count it.

I found it hard to deduce some formula on my own.

Thank you very much.

Anyway, why is everyone using examples of loosing 6 times in a row.

It's still stupid to bet against the house, of course, but the odds do not become so decisive to the house's advantage, of course until you make lots of bets.

Since in such games of chance the bets are independent, the expectation of all bets is going to be the same, regardless of whether you previously won or lost.

In most casino games, the expected value of any individual bet is negative, so the sum of lots of negative numbers is also always going to be negative.

This reasoning, "intuitive" though it might be, is actually incorrect unless the stopping time has finite expectation.

I removed this with a reason in the edit summary, but undid it without one "revert".

Here's a more detailed explanation.

For that to be true e.

That is why we have the conditions in the — we need https://allo-hebergeur.com/blackjack/what-does-push-mean-in-blackjack.html finite lifetime and a limit on bets.

Let's remove this misleading reasoning, please.

In this case, the stopping time is a geometric random variable, which has a mean.

I'm going to change the intuitive description to account for this.

The conclusion is correct with a finite 1 lifetime, no betting strategy can workbut the reasoning given to arrive at it is utterly wrong.

It should be removed.

Just a clarification: the lifetime in any play is finite ; by "finite lifetime" above I mean either "bounded lifetime", or "lifetime whose is finite, and with limits on the bets".

You have only shown that it would be flawed in circumstances that do not exist.

That is, circumstances irrelevant to the article.

Many mathemetic proofs break down when you bring infinity into the picture.

But, infinity is not in this picture.

I carefully read and responded to what you wrote.

I did not respond to what you did not write.

Second, you are the one claiming the article is flawed.

The proof you provided was not relevant to the article.

A reason should be given for removal.

I'll let someone else respond to your next response.

The clarification earlier was specifically intended to address "bringing infinity into the picture" — the number of plays can be always finite, and yet have infinite expectation this is exactly what happens with the most common form of this betting strategy.

The very first statement of the paragraph is wrong and the comments I made were meant to demonstrate this; I realise now that they weren't successful.

The fact that a proof is wrong e.

Anyway, how about the following?

I'll rewrite that section, explaining the mathematics as clearly as I can, and then we can discuss before blindly reverting.

I didn't write the original text.

I think the general concept here on WP is to accept original text that has stood for a time without a good reason to revert.

I also think we would welcome a rewrite.

But, within the constraints of a pure betting strategy part of the definition of Martingale precludes infinityit will be difficult to disprove the statement.

I don't see your problem with the statement within the constraints of the article.

There is no question that stopping points can affect strategies that take into affect actual changes in odds often to the negative.

Do you believe that stopping points can affect pure progression systems that ignore changing odds according to changing conditions e.

That's one of the surprising counter-intuitive things I learned.

I'm referring solely to "the expected value of a series of bets is just the sum of the expected value of each bet" as a statement.

I'll try to write this up or find a source where it's written up more clearly soon.

As the text states, the expected value of a series of bets is just the sum of the expected https://allo-hebergeur.com/blackjack/blackjack-apprenticeship-bootcamp.html of each bet.

The point is that the "series of bets" is not fixed, so in fact the statement doesn't even make sense, let alone be incorrect.

Either formally write down what you mean article source we can figure out where the communication gap is, or find a source that says so.

But what you are claiming has been debunked time and again.

I suggest you post to an advantage player forum.

I understand "forum", and from context it seems to be something related to gambling, which does not interest me.

My interest is only in fixing the incorrect mathematics.

I find it hard to believe how my "claim" which is merely pointing out at a sentence does not make much sense has been debunked anywhere; perhaps blackjack oak 22246 are thinking of something else?

The sentence does not make any sense!

What does the statement mean now?

It looks like you are assuming you will win the third play if you lose the first two.

The expected value is the strategy rules switch blackjack of plays times -1.

This is the first term in the formula.

The broader point is that a statement like "The expected value is the number of plays times -1" does not make sense when the number of plays is not fixed here, it can be either 1 or 2, continue reading for the other stopping times mentioned in the previous comment, it may be any number.

If you always bet twice, there are two bets.

If you use your stopping example, you bet on average 1.

In either case, the EV is -1.

Finally we have reached the content of my very first comment.

Then, you always bet a finite number of times, but the "average" number of times you bet is not finite, so the equation is not valid.

This is precisely the flaw in the betting strategy described here, but instead of explaining the actual reason it has an "intuitive analysis" that is wrong.

They are both useful as this is an encyclopedia and not a math text.

I do not begrudge you your statements like "stopping points have no effect on EV" and "don't know where you got your second forumla, but it's incorrect", but I think we can agree it has been a waste of time for both of us.

To make a constructive suggestion: given the original incident of being reverted without an explanation, I am reluctant to waste effort, but if I am allowed to rewrite the section, I could retain the current "intuitive" claims and re-work them into some form that is actually correct.

But, the current statement is valid in my mind and, in fact, a long-held truism.

I would view its deletion as a negative.

Martingale theories have existed for centuries.

To look at another encyclopedia, in one of its rare moments of levity, the Enc.

Britannica says that every day someone reinvents Martingale.

I think that's why it is important to provide an intuitive analysis as well as a math analysis.

I also stand by my statement that stopping points have no effect on EV, as has been proved many times.

I would also add that we are all volunteers.

Please review the manner in which you engage other volunteers.

And please excuse me for saying that.

Indeed we are all volunteers, and I appreciate your efforts at Wikipedia.

Your last paragraph suggests that I hurt your feelings in some way, which is unfortunate.

Doubtless some of it is simply a communication gap for example, I called an blackjack strategy martingale naïve, which is common in mathematics and not an insult e.

Returning to the mathematics, I wish to reassert that the intuitive explanation on this page is, in the absence of further qualification, wrong.

Otherwise, it would not have taken until the 1960s to prove this theorem bywhich as you observed, had been of interest for centuries.

Specifically, the "intuitive argument", if true, should apply to any distribution.

But taking a particular distribution in which the stopping time happens to have infinite expectation, it actually fails: the martingale strategy can win.

Of course, this case requires unbounded wealth as well, so it is not possible in the real world.

The correct proof, therefore, cannot arise from carrying the "intuitive argument" through, but on somehow modelling mathematically the constraint of finiteness that exists in the real world.

Hence the conditions in the.

As said, "The problem with wrong proofs to correct statements is that it is hard to give a counterexample.

The statement is correct the martingale strategy does not work in the real world but the purported proof, seductive though it is, is not strictly correct.

I have tried to the best of my ability to explain why the intuitive explanation is wrong it leads to conclusions that are not valid without further assumptions, realistic though they arebut if we still disagree, I don't know what to do.

I tried to clarify that the "intuitive analysis" is only valid under a certain assumption valid in the real world and that the theorem also holds under different possibly weaker conditions in which the "intuitive analysis" may not be valid.

The article is not wrong in the real world.

We live in the real world.

If your problem with the article is that it is not true in a non-real world, well EVERYTHING can be blackjack strategy martingale and false in non-real worlds.

Should we specify in every article that it is only true in the real world?

It's my first logged-in Wikipedia edit, and a bit of an experiment to see if I can do it right.

I think there is some duplication of material already present in the article, but I preferred not to change anything written by others at my current level of experience.

My goal was to provide a more mathematical discussion of the "certain to win eventually" property at a reasonably elementary level, and to show its inapplicability to the real world in a different light than just negative expectation under bounds on time or money which is also true, of course.

But I think the expected value of the stopped martingale the martingale stopped at the stopping time blackjack strategy martingale the martingale strategy is not zero but one.

My source for this is p.

Someone might be interested in correcting https://allo-hebergeur.com/blackjack/double-exposure-blackjack-online.html appears on the article.

I myself have tried spinning the roulette 250 times and more, and if those calculations stated above were true, I would have a 91.

Besides if those calculations were correct, and the chances of losing 6 times in a row increased by the number of spins I play, what would happen if I stopped every once in a while and started from 0 all over again?

blackjack como se juega clasico al don't think so, the chances of you losing 6 times in a row are exactly the same in the first spins as they are 500 spins later, that is 52.

There is a horror story, then you must recoup your losses.

The zero, very deadly.

Also, when you play the casino, expect there to be a head blackjack 160g that WILL wipe you out.

Out of the bracket, a quick buck.

Jump to Does the Martingale strategy always work in Blackjack? Why? - As we've already touched upon, the Martingale strategy works best for ...

Enjoy!

These cards list each possible hand you can have and each of the 13 dealer up cards.

Any other system performs worse than basic strategy.

The only possible exception to this is if you learn how to count cards.

And even card counters use basic strategy.

Well, I guess blackjack strategy martingale, too, but good luck with that.

As you learn more about blackjack always remember that the only strategies you should ever consider using are basic strategy and card counting.

Nothing else reduces the read article edge as much as possible and this has been mathematically proven by computer simulations.

When you mimic the dealer you draw another card on any total of 16 or below and stand on any total of 18 or more.

You also stand on a hard 17.

The only hand in question is a soft 17.

Some dealers hit on a soft 17 and some stand, depending on the house rules.

It might seem like mimicking the dealer is smart because the casino has an edge, so the dealer must be playing in a way to help the casino keep the edge.

The way the dealer pays her hand is actually not the best possible way in every situation.

Find and use a basic strategy card when you play blackjack to keep the house edge as low as possible.

Depending on the house rules, if you mimic the dealer you give the house and edge between 5 and 6%.

This is around 10 times the house edge when you use the proper basic strategy.

With good rules you can play with a half percent house edge, and most blackjack games are under 1% house edge when you use the best strategy.

The never bust strategy means you always hit with a total of 11 or less and never hit with a total of 12 or more.

This way you never bust.

When you play a never bust strategy the house edge is around 4%, depending on the table rules.

As you learned in the last section, you can play with a house edge of around a half percent using the proper strategy so click the following article never bust tactic is about eight times worse than basis strategy.

If the dealer has an ace showing and you have 12, any down card for the dealer of six or more form 17 to 21.

This means that only five cards, an ace, two, three, four, or five, force the dealer to hit again and risk busting.

Though many systems are called by a different name, the majority of systems use the Martingale at least in part.

When you use the Martingale system calculating blackjack probabilities double your bets after every loss and when you win you win enough to cover all of your previous losses and have a win equaling your first bet in the sequence.

You can use the Martingale for any game offering even money bets like roulette, blackjack, baccarat, and craps.

No one knows when the system was actually invented because it was being used before this time, but Martingale encouraged his customers to use the system and his name has been blackjack strategy martingale to the system since then.

When you lose you double your bet.

Any time you lose you bet twice the previous bet on the next hand.

The Martingale system is designed to give you a profit of your original bet amount after any win.

This is simply a bad idea.

The truth is that you can use the Martingale system to win blackjack strategy martingale amounts many times.

You might even be able to use it dozens of times in a row to make small profits.

The Martingale system is a classic chasing your losses system and this is something you should never do.

The other thing you must realize is that your bankroll has to be two times the amount of the maximum bet you place.

You might not think that losing five hands in a row is likely, but start keeping track of how often it happens.

The problem with gambling games, including blackjack, is that each hand is mostly independent of the others.

When you play roulette each spin is truly independent of the others, so you stand the same chance to win and odds on each spin.

In blackjack each hand is slightly affected by the previous hand because cards have been removed from the deck.

This is the reason card counting can work in blackjack.

The house edge is always the same and a system like this just increase the average amount of each bet you make.

Avoid using any betting system while playing blackjack and use basic strategy instead.

When you use a negative progression betting system you change your bets after a loss.

The Martingale system you just learned about s the most famous negative progression system and has been used by many gamblers.

But blackjack strategy martingale other variations of negative progression systems exist.

All of them have the same traits of chasing losses trying to eventually secure a small win and the chance of a catastrophic loss that wipes out your entire bankroll.

You can find negative progression betting systems that increase your bets by half of your last bet or one and a half time, or even more of your previous bet.

The Fibonacci sequence starts with 1, blackjack strategy martingale, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, and 21.

You add the previous two numbers to get the next number in the sequence.

This means the sequence continues into infinity.

Hopefully you see the problem with using the Fibonacci sequence.

A twist to using a straight Fibonacci sequence with a negate progression system was developed to attempt to overcome this problem.

You increase your bets after losses like described above but after a win you drop back two numbers on the progression instead of all the way back to your base bet.

Then you start back over at your base bet as soon as you make a profit for the series.

In a positive progression betting system you change your bets after a win.

The idea is to profit from a winning streak while reducing your risk of taking a big loss.
