Are you have a problem downloading the program or running the program.

I posted a box.net link in the event you can't download from Jay's link.

    Hi VW

     

    You are right. The program crashes because of the limitation of 30 draws. I'm going to expand this limitation to 1000(you'll never need this). I'll provide the readers with the download link in a future post along with some new observations.

      Hi Jay,

      Would it be possible to add a 2nd text file with the output.txt (combinations from the key)?

      Sent you and email also.

              Hi Everyone:

               

              Here is the link for downloading Rev1 of keyPerformance.exe, named keyPerformance_Rev1.exe. Just place it in the same folder as keyPerformance.exe. In this rev you can have up to 1000 past draws in the draw file.

               

              http://uploading.com/files/8ef4376c/keyPerformance_Rev1.exe/

               

              I've been doing a lot of testing and here's what I have found so far:

              1. It doesn't seem to make a difference if you use seperate or combined day and night past draws.

              2. The best way to play is to take the past 6 months worth of draws(3 months if you are combining day night draws) and play the selections obtained from 3 top performing keys. Use seperate pools for each selection set. Usually there's at least one win within 10 draws. With this method, you can really see what the trend is. Surprisingly, sometimes there's no trend at all.

              VW: To include all the selections with each key in an output file would amount to having a massive amount of data to look through.

                Jayemmar, 

                I use a Mac and unfortunately, can't use your program :( When I open the keyperformance.exe file, the only thing pops out is a file with lots of random/errors words

                 

                ----

                Has anyone used jayemmar method and win?

                  Just did a test of seven days in march (midday only), it gave me 3 keys with more than 2 after the dash. Out of those 3 keys only one of them produced a box winner in the next 4 days.

                  Middays winners in iowa 3/17-3/23

                  0884
                  0186
                  5151
                  9560
                  1423
                  1526
                  7057

                  These gave me the keys:

                  0156 - 2
                  0578 - 2
                  1245 - 2

                  So the next 4 days winning numbers were:

                  6990
                  9203
                  1254
                  4739

                  So in theory this is working. Evening test gave me one key that didn't win in the next 4 days.

                    Hi Everyone:

                     

                    I did a quick test using the P4 in Wisconsin. Starting Feb. 29,2012 and going back 180 draws, I created the draw file and ran the new version of keyPerformance. The top performiong keys were:

                     

                    1358 unlocking 24 winners

                    0257 unlocking 22 winners

                    0268 unlocking 21 winners

                    Here are the next 10 winners from March 1st to March 10th

                    4837, 7893, 6613, 1026, 8742, 6493, 9207, 3269, 3100, 1538, 1285

                    The key 1358 was itself a winning number, but it did not unlock any other winners. 0257 unlocked 1285, and 0268 unlocked 9207.

                     

                    For the acid test we'll go to New York(Midday Pick 4) and go back 180 draws, starting from yesterday. Here are the top three performing keys over the past 180 days:

                            KEY          #WINNERS

                    015820
                    026818
                    137918
                    168918
                    247918
                    268918
                    037817
                    246917
                    368917

                    I'd appreciate a watchful eye over the next 10 days from any of the followers of this thread. At this time we don't know how to single out one winning key, but whatever key you decide to go with, you can feel confident that it came from a list of solid choices.  Also, from what we have seen, each key itself should be included in the selection process.

                      Jayemmar,

                      I would like to backtest and explore this system. Is it possible for you to program the unlock routine results to go to a text file like you did for the keys program?

                      Thanks for your contribution.

                              Hi Everyone:

                               

                              I created a new program, which combines pretty much of the enhancements I was asked to include by several readers. The name of the program is called 4ToWin.exe. Download to the same working folder as the other files (Handicapping The Pick4) were downloaded to.

                              1. Prepare a draws file of any length up to 1000 draws(still called drawsP4.txt).

                              2. Click on the icon 4 ToWin.exe and you will be prompted to enter the minimum number of wins at which you want key unlocked winners for this draw file.

                              If there aree no keys that unlocked the minimum number of winners, you will be told so, else open the selections.txt file and you'll see something like this:


                              0238 - 3

                              1338 1248 1239 0348
                              0339 0249 9138 9228
                              9237 0128 0137 0227
                              1238 0338 0248 0239
                              9238 0138 0228 0237
                              1138 1228 1237 0328
                              0337 0247 9338 9248
                              9239 0148 0139 0229

                              0248 - 3

                              1348 1258 1249 0358
                              0349 0259 9148 9238
                              9247 0138 0147 0237
                              1248 0348 0258 0249
                              9248 0148 0238 0247
                              1148 1238 1247 0338
                              0347 0257 9348 9258
                              9249 0158 0149 0239

                              1238 - 4

                              2338 2248 2239 1348
                              1339 1249 0138 0228
                              0237 1128 1137 1227
                              2238 1338 1248 1239
                              0238 1138 1228 1237
                              2138 2228 2237 1328

                              0239 1148 1139 1229

                               

                              3 was chosen here as the minimum number of unlocked winners for the draw file. The selections that follow are equivalent to running unlock with the given key. The number following the dash is the number of winners in the draw file that this key unlocked.

                              Here's the link for 4ToWin.exe

                              http://uploading.com/files/9ad71ff3/4ToWin.exe/

                              I would be very interested to hear your results of back testing this program.

                              PS: You still get the keys.txt file output with this program.
