Games: Gravity is a chain reaction within an equilibrium of chaos& entro

In summary, the conversation discusses different strategies for winning at the game of roulette. The main idea is to take advantage of the 50/50 odds by strategically placing bets and using techniques such as adding extra chips or reading body language to increase the chances of winning. The conversation also mentions the concept of the "free penny" and how it can affect the odds of winning. Overall, the key is to know when to quit and use a systematic approach to increase the chances of winning.

[SOLVED] Games: Gravity is a chain reaction within an equilibrium of chaos& entro

Roulette is a 50/50 game if you are playing black vs red, except for
the one green slip of the wheel, but the odds of hitting that are very
remote.

So here is an experiment you can test out at home.

Get 21 pennies, and a quarter.

Now get 3 pennies and the quarter ready. Put 2 pennies in a pile, and
one by itself.

If the quarter comes up heads move the penny by itself into the pile of2, and tails you do the opposite.

The odds are 50% higher that you will win at roulette if you have the
pile of 2 pennies. And here is why. Because the extra pennie is a
freebie that your pretty girlfriend scored from some stooge playing
poker who was probably on a winning streak.

Now you can keep playing this game by adding a penny to each pile, and
the odds of you taking the whole pot continue to go down logically.
When you are playing 3 on 2, the odds of winning aren't 50% higher,
they are only 25% higher. And with each penny you add the odds go downby half. Or something like that. You do the math.

But the more money your girlfriend hustles the greater your odds of
winning at roulette are. Or you could bring in fake chips yourself.
But the great thing is the more free chips your playing with, the more
of the casinos pot you have a good chance of raking in.

It doesn't matter, just always bet on black.

There are lots of other ways to get that "free penny" as well. Being
able to read good body language at a poker table gets you a free penny,being a pretty girl gets you that extra, I'm going to overbet my bad
hand penny. You know

But the idea is that if you play the 50/50 game, and you always trying
to win just half of what you are willing to gamble, your odds improve
greatly.

2 against 1 , you have a 66% chance of winning

You win that pot

3 against 1, you have a 75% chance of winning

4 against 2, you have a 66% chance of winning.

So every time you win a pot you get a free penny!

And once you go up on a streak of luck like this, even when you start
to come down, you can continue going back up, and find a happy medium.
You just have to know when to quit, and know how to score those free
pennies. Just look at the whole pot that you have at the time as
something you are willing to risk to get whatever 'goal' you have at
the time.

Can you imagine what the odds would look like if you only go after one
penny as your goal? As the pile of pennies on your side keeps growing
larger, your odds go up exponentially after you reach each goal. But
obviously there is still a chance you will lose everything because you
are risking all of your pennies to win.

Now that this post is featured on JREF let me explain the math a little
bit more.

If I have 2 pennies and I want to start a chain reaction, in a 50/50
game, then I only go after one pennie at a time.

There are 3 ways the game can go, I can lose a penny, get it back, and
then score the penny that is my goal. Or I can win the penny right
off. Or I can lose completely.

So I have a 66.6% chance of winning

And now that I have 3 pennies and I go after one more penny, the odds
are 75% that I will win, because there are 3 ways I can win and 1 way I
can lose.

If I take the chance of playing these two games in a row, There are 7
ways I can win and 5 ways I can lose. So the chances of winning are
(2/3 + 3/4 )/2. And that's 71.42857%

Which is a whole lot better than starting with 2 pennies and playing
against 2 pennies!

It can only be explained as gravity, and astrological magnetism. Or
maybe, the butterfly effect?

There is a more simple way to doing this.
Just bet on one penny and always play black/red.
If you win, you withdraw. If you loose, you double and play again.

This way you will have a change of winning which increases the more money you have in your pocket. Because the change of loosing becomes half every time you play. Which goes like 50% on the first bet, 25% on the second bet, 12,5% on the third bet, etc.
Now you can always loose because the table has a maximum bet, but this can be rather low.

I appreciate the creative thinking and experimentation involved in this game. However, I must point out that the concept of "gravity" and "astrological magnetism" are not scientifically supported explanations for the success in this game. The outcomes are simply a result of probability and chance, and while there may be factors such as body language and luck that can influence the outcome, they cannot be reliably predicted or controlled.

Additionally, the idea of constantly seeking "free pennies" and always betting on black can lead to gambling addiction and financial troubles. It is important to approach games of chance with caution and responsible decision-making.

In terms of the chain reaction and equilibrium mentioned, I see this more as a metaphor for the potential consequences and balance of risk-taking and winning in gambling. However, it is not a scientific concept and should not be used to justify excessive gambling behavior.

Overall, while this game may be entertaining and thought-provoking, it is not a scientifically valid method for winning at roulette. It is important to remember that gambling is a form of entertainment and should always be approached responsibly.
 

Related to Games: Gravity is a chain reaction within an equilibrium of chaos& entro

1. What is gravity?

Gravity is a force that attracts objects with mass towards each other. It is responsible for keeping planets in orbit around the sun, objects falling towards the ground, and the shape of the universe.

2. How does gravity create a chain reaction?

Gravity creates a chain reaction by pulling objects towards each other, causing them to collide and potentially create more movement or reaction in the surrounding environment. This can be seen in phenomena such as gravitational slingshot, where the gravity of one object is used to propel another object.

3. What is meant by equilibrium in relation to gravity?

Equilibrium in relation to gravity refers to a balance between the force of gravity and the opposing forces that keep objects in place. In an equilibrium state, the forces acting on an object are equal, resulting in a stable position. For example, the force of gravity pulling an object towards the ground is balanced by the ground pushing back up.

4. How does chaos play a role in gravity?

Chaos plays a role in gravity by affecting the trajectories and movements of objects. The gravitational pull between two objects can be affected by other forces, such as air resistance or the presence of other objects, leading to chaotic and unpredictable movements. This can be seen in the chaotic motion of planets and other celestial bodies in our solar system.

5. What is the relationship between gravity and entropy?

Entropy is a measure of disorder or randomness in a system. In relation to gravity, entropy can be seen in the chaotic and unpredictable movements of objects influenced by gravitational forces. As objects interact with each other, their movements become more disordered, leading to an increase in entropy. This relationship between gravity and entropy is an essential aspect of understanding the behavior of the universe.
