“So I was thinking about something my Dad said a while ago. I was watching a guy play blackjack and his strategy was pretty much the opposite of my Dad's. My Dad, whenever he wins, doubles up the bet until he loses. This guy, whenever he <u>lost</u> he doubled up his bet, until he won.
My Dad said it was based on the theory that you can only lose for so long. You can't lose forever. My Dad's problem with this theory is it's false. You can lose forever. You keep betting, and you never win.”
