so i just posted advice on ROR in another thread and then i got to thinking about Kelly Bet sizing. If im doing my math right, Kelly bet for a 1000 unit bankroll, a 1% edge, and 10$ units should be (( Payoff x probability of win) - probability of loss) / ( payoff) for blackjack, we use a 1-to-1 payoff. If we assume a 1% long term edge because of AP, then our formula should be: ((1)(.51) - .49) / 1 which gives us an optimal kelly bet of .02 of our bankroll or = 200 for a 10,000 (or 1,000 unit bankroll.) now this number is certainly not equal to 1 unit, because the kelly criterion assumes infinite trials at the same odds. my questions 1) at what point in the bet ramp should this be placed so that our ROR is not affected? TC3? TC4? is this maxbet? certainly not TC1 or TC2. 2) if we change bankroll size, this kelly bet size changes. Is it proper to have bankroll "X" amount to figure ROR and then bankroll "Y" ? ive read that alot of people use half kelly or .3 kelly. but that could mean anything given people's bet-ramps. basically, has anyone done research to find optimal kelly betsizing for a given Bankroll size and target ROR? ideally the optimal kelly bet would be the bet which grows the BR fastest, without increasing the ROR.
