I have been reading some material on the Ion Saliu website.  He discusses the use of median skips for a given degree of certainty.  Anyone using this concept for picking numbers?  I'd be interested to hear how it works in practice.

 Thanks,

Terry

    I'm not quite sure *which* theory/program you're referring to, as he has a number of them, however regarding his Fundamental Formula of Gambling (FFG) generally, I've tested it a fair bit against Canadian lotteries (pick 6 and pick 7), and I've found it to be consistently pretty accurate at 90% "degree of certainty" or higher (eg, that will usually leave a pool with all the winning numbers, or only 1 or 2 eliminated, which I consider quite good on a consistent basis).  However, that said, at 90% or higher it will only eliminate 3-5 numbers for any given draw - which leaves a pool of possible numbers not terribly economical to play :(

    Regarding median skips specifically, I've also played around with that on my own - ratios between avg. skips and median skips, overall avg. vs. overall median, etc, and had some interesting results narrowing down the possible number pool to 25 numbers or so with 4 of 6 winners or higher (not fantastic economically but better than the entire pool) - however, I had consistency problems with it (eg, my theory would work fine for several draws and then it seems the *inverse* of the results would apply for several draws, and then it would switch back - however, I've been unable to determine a rhyme or reason to it, which makes it fairly useless).

    Ah well, the joys of experimenting :)

      Hi mabman,

      Thanks for taking the time to respond.  Glad to hear you are looking at skips.  I'm trying to find an approach that works but is also logical.  Although, I guess I'd settle for one that works.

       Thanks,

      Terry

        Hi tben, click on Resources at the top right of the page then select Search for something. Input median skips or Ion Saliu. You will see many posts on the subject. Also you can search all history.
