Unfortunately for the poor souls who develop them, betting systems are really not trustworthy? Why not? Well, there are a few ways in which we can determine this to be true. First off, most betting systems that people claim are legitimate are untested. These systems have only been tested on a small number of hands. You actually need to test them on a larger scale, millions or even billions of times, before you even know what your odds are.
Many people believe that they have the system that will “break Vegas“. The only problem with this is that many people have said it… and yet the Casinos still stand. Many people fail to realize that the house advantage really neutralizes any chance to win via a betting system, but still, people continue to try out there betting systems against Vegas, day after day after day.
If you believe that you have come up with a new betting system that will work (because there isn’t one out there that is going to work for you in the long run…) than you should test it. Many people only test it on 1,000 to 10,000 hands. But as stated previously, the testing needs to be on a larger scale than that in order to verify accuracy.
Basically, the best betting system is the one that you don’t use. The only way to increase your odds at winning are to be patient, to play the right games, and to educate yourself on basic strategy. Actually, you have a better chance at winning a game like Texas Holdem, because you are not playing against the house, just against other player. In this way, you can learn the tricks to keep you in the game, land hopefully come home with some winnings.
