Route 66 Staking Plan
So called because of the famous Route 66 and the fact that 66
is a pretty handy number and $66 isn’t much to invest to
find out if this works for you.
The Route 66 Staking Plan will ONLY
work for you if your selection system is soundly based and throws
up most winners at around the $4 mark but, occasionally, throws
up a double figure winner.
Sound like you?
Here’s the staking idea based
on a bank of $66.
Break your bank into $22 in the
win section and $44 in the place section.
The idea is that all your win bets
are calculated by multiplying the first figure of the bank by
2 -e.g. $22, that is, 2 x 2 = $4.
The place bets are calculated by
multiplying the first figure of the bank by 3 -e.g. $44, that
is 3 x 4 = $12.
This is the “base size”
bet that you NEVER go under.
When the “win bank” increases
however from the base level,
the win bets do increase and decrease but never under the starting
The idea of course is that you should
get many more place getters than winners and
the place bank then “subsidises” the longer run of
outs that inevitably plague the win side of the ledger.
Obviously, the place bank has a
far greater chance of increasing than the win bank so you will
end up probably having considerably more on your selections for
a place than a win as the progression continues.
A winner though evens things up
again as far as proportional betting is concerned.
However, it goes without saying,
that this is fraught with danger if you do not have
a consistent method of winner selection.
If your bank increases by 50% (to
$99 on the example above) take the profit and start again.That
way, if you lose your entire bank, which is quite likely, you
have a half interest already with profit taken, to try again.
plan can make up for plainly poor selections.
