In my initial days I was much inspired by Progression betting strategies. I often used them while I was on plus side.

Once while playing at a casino after winning around $2000 I started playing in Progression and all of a sudden I started loosing money. Dollar by dollar I lost all of them. But I did not stop at that I also played with my own money and lost another $2000. I was aghasted.

Since then I stopped Progression betting.

I saw people progressively bet and get like… well, a LOT of money, but I never did it myself. To be honest, I’m a little scared of wht happened to you happening to me. Sorry to hear you lost all that though. Really sucks.

That’s where progressive betting would lead you to. It happens very often and hence most seasoned players never try it.

I tried it once and I lost a few bucks, like, 20 more than what I had. It wasn’t a lot, but I’m glad that it just wasn’t more than that. Sorry to hear it almost killed you though.

It happens all the time! Progression betting is only for the psychic types. For others normal strategies are best to use. Many years ago when I had first heard about it. I applied it in form of negative progression but at times I felt that even though I had good cards, I had made low bets. Since then I stopped using it!
