1326 progressive system
The 1326 system boosts your winnings when you have the advantage, but is that enough to make it a winning betting strategy? Mr Blackjack investigates.
For players that want a betting system that maximizes payouts at the key moment when they have the advantage in the game, then check out the 1326 strategy.
The 1326 betting strategy is a betting system that utilizes math probabilities and recognizes that you can win four hands in a row. When the shoe is hot, it guarantees that you maximize your profit while maintaining some control over your bankroll on the third wager.
This strategy shows you that you are far more likely to win two hands and perhaps lose the third hand, so you drop your bet on the third hand, and then if you are on fire and keep winning, you raise it again on the fourth bet. Here it is in action:
If your initial bet is $10, let's make that $10 equal to one unit. If you win that hand, you make your next bet three units; so, $30.
Should you win that hand, your profit so far is $40. 1326 states you should put it back into your stack, and your next bet will be $20, which is two units.
If your third bet is a winner, you are on a roll! It’s time to put all your profit on the table for the next bet, which is six units. That means you are wagering $60 to win $120.
If you win that hand, you have completed the sequence and it’s time to take your profit off the table and start over with your initial one unit. You continue the 1326 betting strategy until you lose a hand or complete the sequence.
1326 strategy maintains that you will eventually lose a hand but that four hands in a row are within the realm of probability for a player. This is the core focus the betting strategy is built around.
To use this strategy you don't need a huge bankroll. You are always playing with profit.
That fourth hand is crucial because if you don't win it you are back at zero. This strategy will have better results when the shoe is hot or when your winning hands come in streaks of four.
