The only real failure .....is the failure to try.

Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much.

Odds never change .....but probability does.

WIN D - Trying to understand your question!  So to try and clarify, you're asking for a state which has the most odd or even sums, in a row, going from mid/mid and eve/eve??

That's right calabs. Thanks for asking.  It's either one or the other. No biggie

I really like to keep them separate in Pick 3 because it would force me to play both games every day if I did. When I am trapping a group.... it gives me time to re-group and study a little bit by keeping them apart. Odds wise its ok to combine if we are just consistent about it and you don't mind playing and paying 2 times a day. For me ..... I need the time.

My thinking in P3 about playing safe and only leaning on six way numbers right after 2 or 3 doubles go by first may work with P4 too. That would be good.

Doubles hit 27% in P3 and 50% P4 .....so we would need to investigate what a safe stack is. My suspicion is its significantly taller in P4 of course. About 23% taller ..... perhaps  Who knows ?

If..... If.... we find that playing 24 way Singles numbers is safer right after we find a stack of say.... 4 or 5 high doubles it could work. We could justify the extra cost of playing a large part of the 210 singles and get a Single hit rewards that way.

Otherwise the cost of playing the singles and hitting a double negate that 100 dollar payout for a box single.

If we played all the 210 every day..... at the very best we could hit 50% of the time. Those doubles are the problem...... or the opportunities we need.

No doubles .... we would win 100% of the time. It appeals to me to think of it that way. Find away to work around those doubles and we could hit 100% of the time!

If we find that NJ has only had a stack of doubles say...... 8 or 9 high once a year..... I might just haul off and play a whole bunch of that Singles group that day. Probability wise..... it would be a better bet.

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.

Thanks WIN D.  I follow you now.  As it just so happens, I've been keeping a spreadsheet which tracks NJ P3 and P4 numbers since January of 2005.  From the sheet it's easy to either compile stacks of doubles, either mid to eve to mid, or mid to mid and eve to eve.  Since I color code all the doubles, they're easy to pick out, and easy to track skips of each double group (e.g. 00, 11, 22 etc.)  When I get some time, I'll do that and report back here.  Although it's easier to track mid/mid and eve/eve using the Inspector tool, I also like to track consecutive draws.  I can give the maximum stack under those conditions as well if you think it's worthwhile.
