That's just how things work.

BA,

Sorry to sound a bit harsh, but I am getting a little tired of having to explain over and over again - its not your fault.

Again to quote this paper http://www.blackjackforumonline.com/...eads-howto.pdf :

I suggest you look at Equation 11:

Your Kelly bankroll doubling time is given by t = (0.693)/( k - k*k/2) * N0 rounds, which is minimised for k = 1,
where t = 1.39 x N0.

For k=>Sqrt(2)=1.41, your Kelly doubling time is infinite - effectively meaning you are overbetting
and you are guaranteed to lose your bankroll, period. If k=0 you are betting nothing and again your
doubling time is infinite.

If you are able to plot quadratic functions, look at y = k - k*k/2 and you will see what I mean.

Your Kelly doubling rate depends on your Kelly fraction k and N0.

The only way you can decrease your Kelly time for a fixed fraction k = BANKROLL/EKB is to DECREASE N0.

Fiddling with your unit bet \$B = k * BANKROLL/ekb, where ekb is your UNIT Equivalent Kelly Bankroll
( again only dependent on your UNIT 1-M spread and your Wong point ) cannot change N0.

End of story.

Brett.
