If you are on a 10-game streak, I'll tell you not to press it and keep your bets steady. But if I'm on a 10-game win streak you know I'm pressing....do as I say, not as I do!

Selectively bet more.

Up 50- 100% on a small number of plays to test the waters. Never enough to wipe out a significant ammount of the profit garnered.

Considering I probably put in 5,000-10,000 plays per year, I only vary my bet size when my bankroll changes substantially.

On a book by book basis, these streaks happen all the time, even weekly.

For four books combined I am currently on 32-2 streak (Canbet 8-1, Las Palmas 11-1, Gambler's Ave 8-0, Casablanca 5-0). Doesn't mean you're not 2-8 somewhere else. Can cause your Neteller and Securebuxx accounts getting a workout, but other than that its just part of the natural ebbs and flows of this game.

10 straight? You pull 80% of your balance (or 100% of your profits) and start the game over with lower $units.

Step back, cut back & enjoy what you have won.

(In other words, get it out of the book & in your pocket before you blow it)

Get nervous, because things will even out.

Bet the same, but with an impending sense of doom.....[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/img]

Do the opposite of what you do when you have lost ten a row.

You can only lose once on a streak. I say - don't change anything (including your clothes) - ride it till it bucks you off!

Very slightly higher, due to the 10-game win streak giving me a slightly bigger bankroll. Like neilm says, big streaks happen all the time, good and bad. It wouldn't cause me to re-evaluate my abilities or to decide that I'm "hot", so I wouldn't substantially change anything.
