When I created the Gap strategy and the Alpha Predictor, I
purposely decided to set the Fixed Position Identifier for
the A numbers, 1-9, at F4/L5.

I've since decided that Fixed PID for 9 numbers should be
set to F3/M3/L3 (first three numbers, middle three numbers
and last three numbers).

The Alpha Predictor will remain at 3.3.3.1.

Please refer to previous posts for information on PID and
the predictor.

While I don't know if anyone other than myself is interested
in using Gap strategy to obtain lottery numbers to play in
a wheel, I think it's important to stress the importance.
of the Hot PIDs and the predictor arrangement.

Simply put, the predictor arrangement should always be set to
3.3.3.1, if possible.

Unfortunately, a different predictor arrangment is necessary
when the number of lottery numbers is less than 9 or more than 10.

A Pick 5 of 37 lottery has 8 numbers in the D group (30-37).
To avoid bias, the FPID has to be set at F4/L4. However, the
desired predictor arrangement of 3.3.3.1 isn't possible.

To accomodate 8 numbers, the predictor is set to
2.3.3.1.

The Fixed PID for the 7 D numbers in a Pick 5 of 36 game is
set at F3/L4 and predictor set to 2.2.2.1.

The FPID for the 6 F numbers in the Pick 5 of 55 game
is set to F3/L3 and the predictor set to 2.2.2.1.

The FPID for the 7 F numbers in the Pick 5 of 56 game
is set to F3/L4 and the predictor to 2.2.2.1

If you have been working with this strategy, you should have
already determined that workouts using only the lottery numbers
is possible.

The designations are GNR (gaps, no repeats) and #NR (lottery
numbers, no repeats).

The #NR has it's own set of data. The FPID and predictor
arrangment are the same.

More than 10 numbers????

You might have also determined that workouts where the use of
repeat numbers is possible.

The two repeat number workouts I use are designated 9GR and 9#R.

The repeat numbers occur in a data stream of fixed length.

For example, when working with a GNR stream, repeat numbers
are blocked out so that the gap stream always has the correct
number of numbers, 9 for the A numbers, 10 for the B and C
numbers and whatever number is required for the D numbers.

When repeat numbers are allowed the stream has the required
number of numbers, but the repeats are NOT blocked out.

I'm not going to discuss how the data keeping process is
done. Too complicated.

However, anyone familiar with the gap strategy GNR and #NR
can see the differences and adapt accordingly.

My gap and lottery number streams are set to 9. The Fixed
PID is always F3/M3/L3 and the alpha predictor is always 3.3.3.1.
for each number group.

That's right - the number of numbers in the lottery number
group is NOT a consideration. The workout uses the last
9 numbers in the cumulative gap and lottery number streams.

I could use more than 9 numbers, but to do so presents
some major problems with the alpha predictor.

For example, there is no logical or useful alpha predictor for a stream with 11 numbers.

If the prediction scheme is based on the last 12 numbers, the FPID must be set to F4/M4/L4 and
the predictor set to 4.4.4.1.

An alpha predictor arrangement of 5.5.5.1 would be needed if the last 15 numbers are being
considered. In other words, the user would have 5 choices for the A level, compared to 3 when
the last 9 gap or lottery numbers are being used in the overall prediction scheme.

My recommendation is to use the last 9 numbers. This standardizes the data keeping procedures.
Also, makes using gap strategy for Pick 3 and Pick 4 games much easier.

As for myself, I maintain data for all 4 workouts for each of the 5 lotteries I'm
tracking. (I'm retired and have plenty of time. LOL)

Hot & Cold number frequency/pattern and Gap theory on lottery is something that has interest me withing the past year....

I became interest on Gap theory on lottery just recently about 2 months ago...I bought a system on Ebay and there they talked about gap theory/sequence...The only problem is that is hard to follow...

I find very little about both issues on the internet....

mY BAD, i made a mistake...I confused Gap theory with Draw Skip Sequence...Draw Skip Sequence is the "SKIP" each number makes between draws...I just didn't know what it was called...I call it that: "Draw Skip Sequence"....

I've received some comments indicating some folks are writing Excel code for my gap strategy workouts.

If anyone has succeeded and put something up for sale on ebay, it's news to me.

Gap strategy is a new way of tracking lotteries. It's difficult to use initially, but  becomes really 'simple simon' over the long run - in my humble opinion.

There are numerous lottery websites and programs on wheeling. Almost all say that if you choose x number of numbers and y number of combinations, one can win IF z number of x numbers are in the winning combination, or something like that.

Problem is, very few of these schemes actually tell you how to pick the x numbers. Most just brush it off.

Well, gap strategy provides an organized, some say educated, means for CHOOSING  numbers for a wheel.

I stress choosing because it's the player who decides what to play, not the system.

There are no 'easy buttons' with gap strategy.

Give it a try, but, make sure you have plenty of time, graph paper and sharp pencils.

I have played around with this theory in the past month or so, and find it very interesting to say the least. Your definitions on this system is very much appreciated.  Thanks....!

Gap Strategy - Alpha stream before and after triples.

Those following this thread and setting up a gap strategy system
know how important the Alpha Predictor is.

This is where the player, using all of the tools, inventories and
other indicators, decides which of the lottery numbers he/she will
use in the wheel pool being created.

The Predictor has 4 levels - A, B, C and R.
Each level in turn has 3 position indicators. These are
taken from the Hot Position Indicator stream.

To review, the A level, reading from left to right, is the first 3 spaces in the Hot PID stream.
The next 3 spaces are the B level indicators.
Spaces 7, 8, and 9 are the C level indicators. The
R (repeat) is the last (far right) space.

The immediate question at this point is which of HPIDs are to be used to
generate a lottery number - using the procedures previously described.

Should 3 As be used, 3 Bs or a mix?

The Hot PID inventory can provide some hints. Sometimes,
one or two indicators seem to come up more often than the
the other 8.

Another aid is the Alpha Identification stream. Specifically,
'before and after' triples in the order that they occur in the
stream.

I have a page set up for each of the 'middle' letters. For
example, I have an A page on which I list the triples as
they occur. Additionally, I have an inventory of the before and after
letters on the same page.

Since there are 4 Alpha IDs, 4 charts are needed, one each for
A, B, C and R.

The triples are derived by taking each letter in the Alpha ID stream
in turn and logging it with the before and after letters.

For example: Given the following Alpha ID stream

AABCCRA

The first triple is AAB at the beginning of the stream. This would
logged as the first entry on the 'A' page as A A B.

The next triple, in order of occurrence, is A B C. This would be logged as
the first entry on the B page.

The next triple is B C C. It would be logged as the first triple
on the C page.

The next triple is C C R. This would be the second entry on the C page.

The next is C R A.  This is the first entry on the R page.

After all of the triples are logged, an inventory group is established
on each of the 4 pages. A count of the before and after letters is maintained
and updated each time new Alpha Ids are added to the stream.

The list of triples will expand and will eventually have repeats, which
are helpful in deciding which Alpha ID could be next in the stream.

An example. In the above, the stream ends with CRA. The question then
becomes which of the 4 possible Alpha Ids could be next.

The possibilities are RAA, RAB, RAC and RAR.

If RAB is chosen, then next triple will begin with AB. There
are 4 choices for AB - ABA, ABB, ABC, ABR.

This continues until the desired number of letters (Alpha IDs) are chosen.

A review of the before and after inventory totals along with the list of triples

I've found that looking for lengthy repeats in the Alpha stream is a waste
of time. However, some triples do come up more often than others.

In one lottery that I track, the inventory for triples where the middle letter
is an A, clearly shows that choosing the triple CAC for the Alpha Predictor

In fact, Alpha C shows up more often in all of the charts.

The R has a tendency to lag behind the others.

There are two prediction schemes - GNR (gaps no repeats) and #NR (numbers no repeats).
Therefore, Alpha ID sequence before and after charts need to be kept for each scheme.

I'm always available if there are questions.
