THIS IS ONE SOLUTION on how to bet the Reversed Labouchere, when you want to do it on 2 dozens or columns at the same time. Of course there are more ways to bet. Let your experience, imagination and creativity guide you.

Labouchere betting method and Reverse Labouchere. **|**

### System explanation

Set the bank-roll to 20 units for a session and write a line looking like this:

**2 – 4 – 6 – 8**

As you can see, all figures are even. This is because we are going to bet two bets at the same time, so we have to split the bet into two parts. To make this an automatic task, we avoid all un-even figures…

Now, the first bet will be (add 2 + 8) 10 units split into two parts = 5 units for each dozen (or column). Suppose we win. The bet was 2 times 5 and one bet was lost and one bet won twice its value, returning only 15 units! That is 5 unit in profit. The way I see it, there is no place on the line for a figure “5”. So, I’ll quite simply note it on the paper and bet the same bet a second time.

Suppose we lose this bet. It was made out of 2 + 8 so we cross them out and the line looks like:

**X – 4 – 6 – X**

Remember the noted “5”? The next bet will also be (add 4 + 6) 10 units – 2 bets of 5 units each. This time we win and we win 5 units. Now, there was another “5” noted so we add them together getting 10 which we put on the line:

**X – 4 – 6 – X – 10**

The next bet is (add 4 + 10) 14 making it 7 units on each dozen/column and we win 7 units and we NOTE it only and bet a second 2 times 7 bet. We lose and cross out:

**X – X – 6 – X – X**

…and a noted “7”. We bet 6 (2 x 3) and win 3 units. Now there are two ways to go and I prefer one way but cannot say that one is the better. The first way is direct: Add the noted “7” to the won 3 making a total of 10 to put onto the line, making it look like:

**X – X – 6 – X – X- 10**

The next bet would then be 2 times 8 (6 + 10)… and you must add or subtract one if you get an odd figure…

The second way, my preferred way, is to add equal figures only, like the two 5s earlier. So we note the “3”. One reason: There will automatically be only even figures to put onto the line. A second reason will be revealed as we play a few spins more with the line looking like:

**X – X – 6 – X – X**

and we have a “7” and a “3” noted. So the next bet is a second 2 times 3 units and we win 3 units. We now have two equal figures to add – the noted “3” and the won, making a total of 6 and, when put onto the line, it looks like this:

**X – X – 6 – X – X- 6**

We still have a “7” noted! The next bet is 2 times 6 and we lose and we cross the 6s out, completing the session. We lost the bankroll on the sequence: W – L – W – W – L – W – W – L. NO! And this is the second reason, why I prefer this way: We had the “7” noted; it’s a win that has not been used so, in fact, we lost “only” 13 units. This means that sometimes the line can be completely crossed out but there are more than 20 units noted and the net result is actually positive.

#### Set a limit

WHAT YOU MUST DO is set a limit of some kind. Below, in the sample spins, I simply not but… YOU have to figure out what your limits are, just like you have to do with any kind of progression. You cannot go for the table limit; this progression (and most) is all too slow for that – as a general rule I say: The lower the limit, the bigger the chance… to have a positive outcome, that is.

#### The rules

The rules I follow below are simple:

Start betting when there are two different outcomes in three spins

Always bet the two latest outcomes

If there are 3 different outcomes in 3 spins or a zero hits; wait until 2 different in 3 spins

Only add two identical figures to put onto the line

The starting line is 2 – 4 – 6 – 8

### Test – Example
