A negative betting progression works on the concept that each time you lose a hand you double up the bet in an attempt to win your money back. So first round bet 1 unit lose. Second round bet 2 units lose. 3rd round bet 4 units lose etc. The problem with this system is that you would need a very large bankroll and no table limit to make it work

Progression betting is not really advantageous to the player at all - it leads to deep loses and rarely ever to come backs. I never use negative progression!

I have had mixed results with any kind of progression betting. But it feels really exciting. Try it on some free site and you shall know what I am saying! Attacking with double strength after every loss is not every one’s cup of tea.

I too used to try it initially but after observing the outcome, I stopped using it. It could lead you into huge losses. Better stay away for it.

Well I don’t use negative betting progression as its not possible to follow after a point. But my thumb rule for lean times is to avoid playing after I’ve lost 50% of my money.

I completely agree. You can’t play negative betting in progression as after a point you can’t reduce the bets. I used to play haphazardly but this forum has taught me alot. Now I have vowed to play with 50% rule.

Interesting system, but you got to win enough to keep up with it.  I do agree this would take a good bank roll to get this method paying out like it should, with time.

I have heard of people using this system but it is about the only system that I have ran across that may actually have some merit to it.  I have seen it work and work well for some, but you guys are right, you need a healthy bank roll to make this one pay out.

Initially I had tried this strategy with mix success but later on I felt as if I was underplaying. I had chances where I could have won many $$$ but due to this strategy I couldn’t & from that point onwards I stopped using it.

That is not a negative betting progression that is a progressive betting. If I used a progression system(which I dont, I use bet spreads)... I would bet like this.  If I lose 1 unit say of $5, my next bet will bet $6, after that $12 after that 24 after that 48.  So instead of doubling up after 4 times and losing $155, I lose $85 after 4 rounds of betting and instead of breaking even I would be ahead $1.  In positive counts since I have the edge that is when I would double up.  A negative progression is when you take away from the bet each round get it.  If I were to lose those four in either count I would start it over.  But I average two wins for every loss so that would happen once in a blue moon..  God lose the VOODOO and become a REALPLAYER and use bet spreads.  sTOP BETTING LIKE THE DARKSIDE OF THE FORCE.  bE LUKE SKYWALKER NOT darth vader

If you’re going to continue using it, a very big loss is on your way, even buying betting systems are also risky.
