    What do you mean by that? Do you mean that your max bet should be 1% of your total bankroll?

    After losing 62.5% of his BR two things are both true. His RoR from when he had 2.67 times the BR he has now is unaffected, and his RoR from this point forward is 7.4%. Obviously the current RoR is more applicable to his current situation.

    He technically has a 7.4% chance of losing what he has left if he doesn't resize no matter what his RoR used to be.

    Without an infinite bankroll 0% ror does not exist.
