# Beresford Progression Betting System

Using the Beresford Progression betting system for Roulette can result in good profits, and possible losses are within reasonable limits.

With the original Labouchere betting system, cancellations take place after won bets, the Beresford Progression strategy goes the reverse way: here cancellations are made after lost bets!

The development of the Beresford Progression betting strategy for Roulette is as follows:
First some units are noted in a row, for example:

These 5 units are the number of units we want to risk at maximum!

The first bet size is calculated by adding the 1 unit to the far left
and the 1 unit on the far right, so the first bet is 2 units.
These 2 units are noted to the original row on the right side:

If the first bet of 2 units wins, the next bet is calculated by
adding the 1 unit to the far left and the 2 units to the far right, bet size
of the second bet is 3 units. These 3 units are noted at the right side of
our row:

If this bet is lost, the left 1, the 2 and the 3 are canceled,
again the 1 unit on the far left and the 1 unit on the far right are added
and the sum of 2 units is noted to the right of our row for the next bet:

If this bet wins, the far left 1 and the 2 are added for the next bet: 3 units.
The 3 is noted to the right of the row:

If this bet wins, the far left 1 and the 3 are added for the next bet: 4 units.
The 4 is noted to the right of the row:

If this bet is lost, the left 1, the 3 and the 4 are canceled,
again the 1 unit on the far left and the 2 units on the far right are added
and the sum of 3 units is noted to the right of our row for the next bet:

If this bet is lost also, the left 1, the 2 and the 3 are canceled,
now only 1 unit on the far left and the 1 unit on the far right are left.
These remaining units are added and the sum of 2 units is noted to the right of our row for the next bet: 2 units.

If this bet is lost also, the left 1, the right 1 and the 2 are canceled.
All 5 starting units are now canceled and the progression is terminated.
We have lost exactly 5 units.

The number of starting units determines the maximum possible loss.

The main target should be in close relationship to the max. possible loss.
If you look at the previous example we have the following development of results:

Hereafter the 4th bet we have a gain of 80% of the starting units and
the progression should be terminated and reset. Our recommendation is to terminate the progression after a gain of 50% of your starting units.

Depending on your bet selection and your bankroll you can adjust the
Beresford Progression easily. For short attacks 5 starting units is a good value.
If you prefer longer attacks up to 10 or even 15 units may be your starting row.

If the Beresford Progression betting system is too complicated for you then you can try another. Perhaps you will have better luck with the Capitalization of profits, Deance Progression or the Differential Betting system.
