perdue how do you backtest what is the least amount of days that i should back test to find pairs for the upcoming week is there a shorthand to this?
I went back a week. I looked at both day and night drawings. I intend to look at every drawing in the TX pick3 lotto to see how often each of these pairs hit. When time permits I intend to see how many times all 100 pairs have hit. I say 100 pairs because I will be viewing each pair in the order it occurs. EX: 36-63 are the same but I want to know how many times 36 occurred and how many times 63 occurred, not just how many times the number pair of 36 occurred. I will also be testing to see what pair has a tendency to hit the most during the week, on the day drawing, on the night drawing, on a particular day of the week, etc......
I have two Pick 3 notebooks. In the first notebook is the complete listing of all of the TX Pick 3 drawings from 10-25-1993 to present. In the other notebook I took those pick3 numbers and converted them into vtrac. I call them my sums books. I put the information onto graph paper because I find it easier to line up.
I do this on paper because I find it easier to read it on paper at times. I only write on one side of the paper and I put each sheet into sheet protectors. I also write this in ink so that it doesn't fade.
EX: January 2004
D= Day drawing . = Monday
D 1/1 654 15
D /2 396 18
D /3 852 15
. D 1/5 130 04
I also have this information in my lottery tracking software. So I can sort it in the various ways mentioned above. I am in the process of entering the pick 3 vtrac and Pick 4 and pick 4 vtrac into my software so I'll have the various info at my fingertips for these games.
Bottom Line: I want to know what pair I can realistically expect to hit and how often should I expect it to occur.
When I convert my numbers to vtrac I use the program created by DiamondPalace called Pick 3 Vtrac Converter. All I have to do is input the pick 3 numbers and they are converted into vtrac. Super program!!!
