For those of you who don't want to read the whole system, and it is a little long, here's a summary of it.

It's morphed out of the Garcia system. In the Garcia system you wait until you have 2 in a row of the same color. You then bet for a change of color for up to the next 3 spins. Our progression is 1-3-7 or the 1st 3 steps of the grand martingale. Once we lose this 3 step progression, we will have 11 units to recover. We will have 5 of the same color in a row at this time. We divide the amount lost by 3 and try to recover it by betting that the color will continue to streak for another 3 spins.

So, if you have a large enough bank, and can stay playing until you have 8 in a row of a color, you will have recovered all of your losses and be ahead of the game.

The authors have changed this quite a bit because they didn't like the odds of being able to hang in there until the next time 8 in a row came around because it could be a very, very long wait.

The major changes they have made is that instead of 1-3-7 they have changed this to 1-1-1. Instead of having the losses divided into 3 banks of 1 each, they have divided them into 3 banks but each bank is dividing into sub-categories. Bank 1 is divided into 3. Bank 2 & 3 are divided into 2 each. So that's 7 sub-categories to divide our losses into. By using 7 instead of 3 it prevents our recovery bet sizes from increasing too quickly.

Also, instead of playing for a color to streak to 8 times before we are fully recovered, they have us betting some of the banks on chops and some on streaks.

We can think of the system as being played by 3 different people. The 1st person plays for a color streak of 2 in a row to chop on the 3rd spin. If he wins, that unit goes into profits. If he loses, that unit goes into the 1st subcategory in recovery bank #1.

If there isn't a chop on the 3rd spin, the 2nd player bets 1 unit that there will be a chop on the 4th spin. If there is, he puts that unit in profits. If the streak continues, it means he lost and the lost unit will go into recovery bank #2 subcategory 1.

If the streak continues to 4, the 3rd player bets 1 unit that there will be a chop on the 5th spin. If there is, he puts that unit in profits. If the streak continues, it means he lost and the lost unit will go into recovery bank #3 subcategory 1.

Once we get to 5 in a row of a color, we stop betting and wait for a break in that color and a new 2 in a row to form. Then we start over.

Once the game gets rolling and each recovery bank gets more and more chips, they are divided equally between each subcategory. If the recovery banks start getting too large and unbalanced, they can share recovery units between them. Everything is done to keep the bets as low as possible.

At times, each player will be making a bet on the next spin. 1 player for the break in the original streak and the other players for recovery of already lost units. Some bets will be opposing and will need to be bet differentially.

You can play until all recovery banks are empty or until your profits reach a certain level.

As you can see from this summary there are a lot of rules. The way I am trying it is to simplify it and only play for player #1. That way I can learn all the different bets he has to make to recover his losses. I'm thinking that if it works when all three players play together, it should work if only 1 of them play. I'll learn each player's bets separately and then I'll play the 1st 2 players together until I can do that smoothly. Then I'll play the 2nd and 3rd players together until I can do them smoothly and finally I'll put them all together until I can do all three smoothly.

And who decided that only 3 players can play at a time? Why not 4,5 or 6 or even more? Oh well, that's probably too complicated to be realistic.

Although, the only advantage I see to playing 3 instead of 1 player is so they can share recovery units if they get too large.

I'm thinking of starting out with 1 player and if his recovery bank gets too large, then I can bring in the 2nd player also and split the recovery units between 5 bets and if those get too large, I can bring in the 3rd player and split into 7 bets.

I know. I'm going crazy again. It's my ADD kicking in. Causes my mind to sniff out every nook and cranny.

More later if anyone's still interested.

I was just hoping that since the system has been out there for a while, maybe someone already had experience with it or knew someone who has and could give us a prognosis.

More than likely, nobody has ever taken the time and effort to learn the system to give it a fair shot.

And once again, I like the fact that if it wins, it can be played on baccarat and craps also. Heck, you could even play against a friend flipping a coin. Any even chance bet will work.
