My bankroll was very limited and at the time I didn't yet fully understand risk of ruin or what my return would be playing LL. So I kept the side bets small, at that time my spread was only about 1-6 and what I had a friend sim for that was already at 25% ROR. I knew it was profitable but i didnt want to go bust on a side bet throwing up green chips. Eventually I did understand it and ended up almost always maxing out the bet when the count called for it. BTW what is the index if you are using KO?
