## Smoke!!!!!!! and RW!!!! math help!!!

Ok I need a double check/sanity check

we are talking 180s and backing

Std. deal is 50/50.

Player makes 20% roi at 8's / 2 if they are backed

but makes 30% roi at 2's

So the question is which is more profitable

so if 20% is x and 30% is y

then 8x/2 vs 2.5y

if 2 is z then we get

8x/z =2.5y

this will tell us what z needs to be to make player indifferent to backing or staying at 2s (will make equal profits)

z = 8x/2.5y

if we solve for z with 20% and 30% for x and y we get 20.8 %

thats the cut that it would have to be lower than for players to want to get backed to move up. 20 not 50!!!!

Then if we assume one can play more 2's because they load faster lets say we have 3k 2's vs 2k 8's over a month we get:

z = 3.2 (.3/.2)(3000/2000) = 13.88%

The backers cut needs to be < 13.88% to make it worth if for the player to take a deal?

a player is better off to stay at lower stakes and make 100% unless the backer is willing to bring it down to 80/20. And don't call me jesussngking wrote:Jesus what are you talking about,lol Just do 50/50 make er easy.

## Re: Smoke!!!!!!! and RW!!!! math help!!!

I'm not good with this at all, but I will give it a shot

To be even shouldn't it be a 70/30 split

(3000*2.50)*.3= 2250

(2000*8 )*.2=3200, 3200*.7032 =2,250.24

To be even shouldn't it be a 70/30 split

(3000*2.50)*.3= 2250

(2000*8 )*.2=3200, 3200*.7032 =2,250.24

no you are splitting it in the wrong way.RWPKRPLR1 wrote:I'm not good with this at all, but I will give it a shot

the question is what is the proper number to split the 8's profits that give us the same as the 2's.

its one number to make it equal the 2s

.80 would be 2560profit for the horse and that's more than the 2250 playing the 2's @100%

If that's not it I fucked up elsewhere and I'm prob no use to u here

oh ya when we add the fact that we can play more twos the split has to be like 13 87. is that right?RWPKRPLR1 wrote:.80 would be 2560profit for the horse and that's more than the 2250 playing the 2's @100%

Nope face palm! I thought you were comparing playing the 2's on your dime at higher volume to having a backer at the 8's playing a smaller volume.

Something is wrong above I think....

If we look at the two options from a 1k game sample size, we would get the following:

A. 1000 games x $2.50 x 30% = $750 profit

B. 1000 games x $8.00 x 20% / 2 = $800 profit

Therefore, if you can guarantee the above ROIs, a 50/50 deal to move up is actually a ~ 6.66% increase to our long term profit ($50/$750 = 0.0666). That doesnt include for the volume of 2.50s vs 8s that we can play though....It just assumes we either play 2.50s or 8s.

Now show me where I screwed up.... lol @ grade 7 maths.

Ya thats the sanity i needed, i still have some good ideas for this but i gotta brew it. This shit is awesome.

For example, lets say i was right and the backers are over charging ( i still might be).

If the player still wants to move up to learn and get experience, first they must compare the amount they 'save' by staying down with the cost of getting lessons that will give them the knowledge to move up and be more profitable.

So we can weigh these things mathematically.

Also the structure of backing vs how the games stakes are set up is important. That is depending on how high the stakes jump is, the backing deals can change and maybe become more standard, or implausible. This info would be useful for both the sites and the backers/players.

Formulas that have graphs to be analyzed.

My backer has a major in econ/math, so we are gonna have a lot of talks and get some of this sorted.

Yeah I am quite sure I would fail a highschool math test if I didn't have time to prepare/remember things. lol

## Re: Smoke!!!!!!! and RW!!!! math help!!!

see theres a nother thing. When a backing deal goes down, the player is assumed to be +ev. There is a size of roll then he will only need which gives plenty of room for a correct ds, for example perhaps an 8's player needs 3k behind.REEBS77 wrote:Yeah I am quite sure I would fail a highschool math test if I didn't have time to prepare/remember things. lol

its like a personal line of credit, and the backer must keep 3k in his account, to fuel the horse.

But once the horse splits 3k in profit, the backer can now take 3k and invest it and stil have 3k to fuel the horses ds

so the loan becomes secured.

I have to think about this more, but i think then the chop rate should go down.
