thanks John, I know all about fib, others may not.

manual must have been updated since the early days

• Sgt John says:

The Fibonacci sequence (or Fibonacci Code) is a number pattern in geometry that figures in just about EVERYTHING natural.
The compiler was Leonardo of Pisa, or Leonardo Pisano in Italian since he was born in Pisa, Italy who was also called Fibonacci.
The original problem that Fibonacci investigated (in the year 1202) was about how fast rabbits could breed in ideal circumstances.
This is his original sequence relating to pairs of rabbits and has not changed since then: 1. 1. 2. 3. 5. 8. 13. 21. 34. 55. 89. 144. The current manual was probably changed to the correct sequence when it was realised it had been published incorrectly.
You may well find your sequence is a sound working one, but it is not a Fibonacci sequence.

• si says:

you must have an updated manual, this is what mine says :

Staking Plan (A)…
I have run hundreds of past selections via several staking plans, and I think the one
that gets the edge long term is the one below. The sequence goes like this;
1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55 (Reverting back to ‘1’ after a winning Lay
anywhere in the sequence).
For Example;
Based on £10 Lays at the average price of this formula of (1.76) and a
Betfair commission of 5%
First Stake: £10 Lay – Horse Won (We Lost) -£7.60
Next Stake: £20 Lay – Horse Won (We Lost) -£15.20
Next Stake: £30 lay – Horse Lost (We Won) +£28.50
Profit of +£5.70
(Now revert back to a £10 Lay)

• Sgt John says:

The actual quotation from the manual is thus: The loss retrieval staking sequence (known as the Fibonacci sequence) goes like this;
1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 (Reverting back to stake ‘1’ after a winning Lay anywhere in the sequence).

• si says:

Hi John, just noticed your Fib staking. I have the original manual and the fib staking sequence is 1,2,3,5 etc, whereas you seem to be using the 1,1,2,3,5, sequence (i.e. after loser 1, go to 2 points, not another 1 point). has this been changed in your manual I wonder?

thanks
