Guest Posted July 29, 2014 Report Share Posted July 29, 2014 Judging from the questions, most are getting the rules right. Some are not. Therefore, I'll explain it again in a more simplified way.I'll be explaining it based on the standard way we fill out a score card.So if you are a brand new MDB member, learn our score card method first. Just examine any posted scorecard. MDB+ is designed for preshuffled cards. It will work best in NEW preshuffled cards such as all Vegas touch games.Touch games means the players touch the cards and turn them over theirselves.We do not bet very often at all with MDB+ so it is important to play in touch games with other players who are playing every hand which is nearly all touch games.While we don't bet often, every bet we make has a high advantage (hit rate). Our 1 bets have a high advantage. Our 2 bets have an even higher advantage. And thanks to Lou, who has been tracking our 3rd bets, our 3rd bet has about a 2 to 1 advantage making it the highest advantage bet in the history of gaming.Therefore, I'm making our official progession for MDB+ 124 once you know MDB+ thoroughly. This gives us +1 units for every bet we win.And instead of making our goal +5, I'm making the goal "Win the shoe!"It was pointed out that trying to hit +5 can cause you to start questionable progressions too late in the shoe.This is particularly true of our 6th bet - betting that 4s will go to 5. This progression should ONLY be started before play 40. This means that betting 4s will go to 5 will be our rarest (least frequent) progression.But, yes, I do think that this progression should be played IF we can start it before play 40 BECAUSE preshuffled cards tend to be high in 5 iars (in a row).MDB+ has 3 bet triggers:1.) a second confirmed 22.) a second confirmed 33.) a second confirmed 4The 2 events can be back to back (consecutive) such as a 22 or a 33 or a 44OR they can be split apart such as a 212, a 3113 or a 4214 We are actually betting our 124 progression that the shoe cannot produce 5 of a trigger event W/O producing ONE neighboring event.The neighboring events to a pair of 2s are 1's and 3+s. (3 or mores)The neighboring events to a pair of 3s are 2s and 4+s.The neighboring events to a pair of 4s are 3s and 5+s.Any time we win a bet that progression is over so we are looking for another pair to start a new progression.But recognize that it is possible, even likely, that we will have multiple 124 progressions going at the same time. For instance, a trigger of 22 would start us betting a 124 prog that the next 2 will go to 3But it would also start us betting a separate 124 progression that the next potential 1 will stay 1.We can only bet on a neighboring event if it did not occur between the triggering pair.For instance: a 212 we cannot yet bet on 1's but we CAN bet that the next 2 goes to 3.A 2122: NOW we have 2 2s W/O a 1 so we can bet separate 124 progs ON both 1s and 3s.Another for instance: 313 - we can bet on both 2s and 4s with separate 124 progs; that 2s stay 2 AND that 3s go to 4+.Recognize with that 313 we don't bet that 2nd 3 goes to 4. We bet the NEXT 3 goes to 4.But if the circles thus far are 2321, we do bet that the last 1 stays 1 because we have 2 confirmed 2s W/O a 1.BTW, a pair of 3s does NOT trigger betting on 1's because 1's are NOT a neighboring event to 3s.It sounds a lot harder when you write it down than it actually is. Just remember what we are betting our 124 prog that the shoe cannot produce 5 of the same trigger events W/O producing any neighboring events. Let's look at some more examples:3243: We have no bet yet because the shoe produced BOTH neighboring events324313: Now we can bet a 124 prog that 3s go to 4 AND we can bet the next 2 stays 2. We get 3 chances on both 124 progs.Any 22 or 33 or 44 we can bet on BOTH neighbors. But we only bet on 5s (that 4s go to 5) if the 2 4s occurred before play 40.OK, here are the rules in a nut shell:MDB+ has 6 bets: We bet a 124 prog on these 6 opportunities1.) A pair of 2s W/O a 1 between we bet potential 1's stay 1. 2.) A pair of 2s W/O a 3 between we bet 2s go to 33.) A pair of 3s W/O a 2 between we bet 2s stay 24.) A pair of 3s W/O a 4 between we bet 3s go to 45.) A pair of 4s W/O a 3 between we bet 3s stay 3 6.) A pair of 4s before play 40 we bet 4s go to 5.Recognize that our worst enemy is the end of the shoe. It can pop up before we finish the prog and any unfrinished prog is a losing prog. Therefore we start at our FIRST opportunity which is usually a pair of 2s (but not always). Yes, we would LIKE to get to +5 but not at the risk of an unfinished prog. So don't be starting progs that you might not have time to finish.That's it!Recognize that if you can learn to play this flawlessly, you can make a million dollars. So, what are your questions?
