The against Alembert rising
The betting system called “Contre d’Alembert” is a game technique that concerns the roulette matches and in particular those matches featured by the simple chances ( which means matches in which the bets are winning one time out of two or in which the bets give a unit for any unit placed).
This game technique is easy to apply, for advanced players as well as for beginners, a thing that makes it very popular.
Principle of the Reverse d’Alembert
As the name may suggest, this betting system is in opposition to the d’Alembert betting system.
When applying the Contre d’Alembert, the player add one unit to his/her bet for a winning turn and, on the other hand, s/he will see his/her bet decreasing of one unit for a losing turn.
This game tactic gives several advantages to players: in particular it allows them to increase gains more rapidly since it put in risk the gains realised during the match and not the initial bet which represent your basic capital. Moreover, this technique is particularly profitable if you win several turns consequently, a thing that opposes to the principle of the Hawks betting system.
By contrast, you need to take into account certain inconvenient that may happen in applying this technique.
It may be quite dangerous and risky if you lose a turn after a series of winning turns: in this case you lose everything you have gained!
In order to avoid to lose a considerable amount, we advise or even recommend you to fix a maximum amount for your bet and, of course, to respect it.
Example of an application of the Reverse d’Alembert
We give you here a concrete example of how this technique can be used, so that you can better assimilate the theory previously illustrated.
The player chooses a starting bet of a unit. It is a roulette game, based on the principle of the simple chance.
- During the first turn, s/he bet one unit on the black. The roulette indicates the black colour. The gains of the player increase of one unit.
- When the second turn comes, s/he bets 2 units on the black. The ball indicates the black colour. The gains get to 3 units= 2+1 (from the first turn).
- For the third turn, the player chooses to bet 3 units on the black. Unfortunately, the roulette indicates the red colour. The player then loses 3 units. The result is therefore null: 3 (previous gains) – 3 = 0.
- During the fourth turn, the player bet on black, the roulette announces red. According to the principle of the Contre d’Alembert betting system, the player has bet 2 (he decreased the previous gain - 3 – of one unit). The player is thus in deficit of 0 – 2 units, which means -2 units.
- When the fifth turn comes, the player bets on the black but the roulette gives the red. S/he bets a unit less than before, and so 1 unit. S/he is thus in deficit of -2 -1 = -3.
