D’Alembert financial strategy
D’Alembert financial strategy was originally designed for casinos, but was later implemented as a strategy for betting on sporting events.
With some similarities to the Martingale strategy, d’Alembert strategy has its own peculiarities.
Based on the size of the bank, a punter defines the value of one unit, for example it is £10. If the bet loses, he should increase the amount of bet by one unit, and if it wins – reduce the amount of bet by one unit.
Here’s an example:
- A £10 bet with 2.0 odds – loss;
- A £20 bet with 2.0 odds – loss;
- A £30 bet with 2.0 odds – loss, the bank returns to its original value;
- A £20 bet with 2.0 odds – win.
Thus, after the cycle closes, a new cycle should not be started from one unit, that is £10, as in a standard Martingale, but with the amount a unit smaller than the previous won bet.
