The goal is to approach the Pick 3 & Pick 4 game sensibly and systematically!!

I'm not like the guy who predicted the end of the world and nothing happened.

Hard to get motivated to even look at this thread.

The numbers, even under the best conditions for one individual game, will produce about 85-87 doubles per year. Of that, at best, there will be 5 to 6 that fall back to back 3 or more times.

6/85 is not a winning play. So it does not make sense to play doubles three consecutive times after the first double falls.

Common sense, reality, basic arithmetic, whatever you want to call it says if I win those 5 to 6 times it does happen, I win 15 to 18 times.

The other possible 80 plays result in 1, 2, or three losses. That's 80 (at one loss) to 240 (at 3 losses) possible total losses.

Stretching the possibilities, if you get lucky and win two times in 40 draws you get 80 wins + 18 wins = 98 wins. And 40 losses.

The other 40 draws at 3 losses = 120 losses + 40 losses for 160 losses.

All the personal stuff can't/won't change the numbers.

Besides, there are more interesting threads on the board. And I have work to do with (lottery talk) He, Le, Ho, and Lo. (In English, He= HighEven; Le=LowEven; Ho = HighOdd; Lo=Low Odd; a HoLeHo would be HighOdd, LowEven, HighOdd combination.)

"No one needs to know your life story". You've used that already psycho. It fell flat the first time. lol

"Gary left you to do his dirty work". Also fell flat the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th time and is still inadequate (like you). :) That's the definition of insanity; doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. smh.

Nah, I don't need Gary to "defend me". I can handle you allllllllll by myself. Something tells me that you're accustomed to getting smacked around by girls.

"Suck up"? You're so silly. lol

"Almost"? Those were your words psycho. lol

Get your Lithium dosage increased. :)

Tootles :)

Well, you can hang on my words all you want, but what I've said is still true. So, apparently, you'd have to handle this all by yourself since gary left you to fend for yourself. Anyway, something tells me you're used to being neglected by your friends. That's too bad. Most likely, you're on some psychiatric medication(s) since you need all the help you can get.

It's obvious by your lack of originality that you have nothing new to add.

Have fun mumbling to yourself on this thread.

Meanwhile, I am going to enjoy Thanksgiving with my family and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving!! Enjoy your Turkey sandwich watching cartoons in your boxers. :)

Toodles. :)

Well, overall, you've placed a lot of emphasis on what we're up against. So, what's your proposed solution to this problem?

Well, you may have family, but it's very doubtful you have any real friends who care about you. So, most likely, your Thanksgiving will just be with family. Anyway, you're very predictable since all you ,mainly, do is hang on my words.

A couple of things......

You sound like another poster who has (had) several handles. Logic is not one of his strong suits either. The moment everyone don't jump up and proclaim his post the most important, earth shattering Cinderella idea ever seen on LP he turns into a whiny, sniveling, immature, cry-baby and starts with the personal attacks. Just like you.

When that don't work, his next question is, "What's your solution?" Just like you.

Well.......it wasn't my problem to begin with. In fact, after 2 minutes with the numbers I'd never give it a second thought.

But here's the real solution....

GROW UP, STOP WITH THE sniveling, whiny, immature, cry-baby PERSONAL ATTACKS, AND NEVER POST AGAIN.

Well, you really should take your own advice since you're all about "cry-baby personal attacks". Simply put, you're a cyberbully. But, anyone can go over the history of your posts ,on various threads, and know this about you. For that matter, the moment any one of your fellow members ,like Tia, has a difference of opinion you can't have it and ,so, you intimidate the person. Anyway, the real solution is for you to go away ,altogether, and  never post anywhere again.

Hello Gary,

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm testing your method with really great results. Thanks for sharing it!

Just ignore the sociopath. He's just a wannabe troll (Not good enough to be a real troll).

I've had my fun with this wannabe troll and now I've bored of him. He's discarded.

Looking forward to share my findings with you with your awesome method!

You Rock!!!

Gary,

I think I have bats in the belfry, so confused with P3G going back and forth. One question,then I will drop the subject. Back to Win D's doubles trap. When you did your test, you used 7 singles in-a-row, then played dbls 3 draws in-a-row, correct? This proved to be unfruitful, correct?

BTW, hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

You probably need to figure out what the Singles / Doubles pattern is in your state, as it pertains to Mid - Mid, Eve - Eve, and Mid - Eve, however you play.  If Mid - Mid is usually 4 Singles, then a Double; or Eve - Eve is usually 5 Singles then a Double; or Mid - Eve is 2 Singles then a Double, whatever the pattern is in your state, that's your pattern to work with.  It doesn't matter what the pattern is in any other state. You may not be able to follow WinD's example, for your state.

Well, it seems you have a pattern of contradicting yourself. Now, you've ,already, stated that I'm not worth the effort and ,also, you're tired of wasting your time, but here you go again. So, you just couldn't resist bringing me up to gary. In contrast, take notice of the fact that I haven't even mentioned you to gary.

Anyway, there you go sucking up to gary ,yet, again. So, not only has gary NOT defended you, but he doesn't even mention you. In fact, the only time he did he was making a point that it has nothing to do with you. Let's take a look at this.

Gary:  "Has nothing to do with WIN D. Or Frankie. I'd feel the same if he did to his dog."

You : "Hello Gary. :) Thank you for standing up for me. You are man of character and you have a friend in me for life."

Wow!! Now, these are both in his words and yours. So, tell us what gary has done for you to deserve such devotion. Clearly, he wasn't sticking up for you and ,for that matter, still doesn't. This ,by itself, just proves my point that you're a pathetic suck up
