    betting & numbers

    think Kelly betting can save you?
    fooughgettabout it.
    better watch who yah make a bet with, never make a bet with certain people.
    anyone notice my avatar changed.
    yup no canoe, lost it in a bet, almost lost my wife and dog too.

    oh yeah enough on betting theory…… here’s something on number theory….

    $0.50 + $0.50 + $0.50 + $0.50 does not equal $1.00 !
    also
    0.5% does not equal 1.0%
    what a difference such itty bitty numbers can make.

    thank you for your time
    note: in case anyone cares, i’m also changed who i might gonna vote for if i vote, and i’m seriously thinkin bout adding someone to my ignore list

    Naked Kelly

    Kelly offers little protection for the money you do have.
    50% chance of losing half your bank with Kelly resizing

    One of the reasons its advised to not bet full Kelly is because in the real world if may be hard to accurately know ones advantage.

    I got news for you:

    $0.50 = $1.00 all by itself and

    0.5% of 1.0% = 2%.

    Also, you can watch movies instantly on your computer with Netflix!

    Okay ,Sage, push the button, but first, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?

    “I’s gots to know.”
