This Lay HiPro86 SP4 staking plan is a form of a loss recovery staking plan but cuts its losses before the stakes are excessive. This compromise can produce excellent results. The Staking Plan can be broken down into 2 steps.
- Step 1- When the first loss occurs the loss is divided into 4 and one unit added to it. So if we have set one unit as £1 and we lose £10 in the bet the next stake is £3.5
The next 4 bets after the first loser is £3.5. After 4 winners the stake reverts back to the original 1 unit or £1. But what happens if we lose any of the four bets. Well, if a loss occurs we simply go to Step 2, which is the second stage of the loss recovery. The exception is when a loss occurs in the final bet of the increased stake. So if a loss occurred in bet 5 in the above table you would simply go back to the beginning and bet 1 unit or £1.
- Step 2 - ( Step 2 can only be reached if a loss has occurred in step1 that causes you to go to step 2)
You can see that the loss of £21.7 in bet 4 is divided by 4 and one unit added to make the next stake 6.42. The profit column shows a commission level of 5% Now lets see what happens when the cycle is finished.
You can see in the table above that the loss recovery sequence is finished in bet 9 and one unit stakes are used once more. If a loss had occurred in bet 5, 6, 7 or 8 the sequence would have reset back to 1 unit and you would have to cut your losses. If you have a bet selection system that you have confidence in not to produce frequent losing sequences this staking plan could be extremely useful. In the above example, using level stakes of £1 would have left you -£17.2. That’s a lot to claw back using £1 stakes.
There is an option to use <LB> to signify last bet. When using this setting the stake will be recalculated as a percentage of the cumulative total as long as a recovery cycle is not in progress. A cycle will only be entered after a losing bet. When the 'Use <LB>' checkbox is ticked the stake will only be recalculated when this filter is found in the bet text. This is essentially the same as currently used in the Maria Staking Plan. The idea is that after a days racing, if you are not in a recovery cycle you add <LB> to the last bet of the day. This will tell the software to recalculate the stakes as a percentage to the cumulative total. A working example is shown below. You can see that bet number 2 lost. This causes a recovery cycle to start. There were 4 winners in a row which means the cycle is finished. By entering <LB> in the last bet the stakes are recalculated as a percentage of the cumulative total. So for bet 7 is 1% of 1050 which is 10.5
If we were to turn off 'Use <LB>' the software will recalculate the stake after each bet as long as it is not in a recovery cycle. This is shown below.
If you don’t want the software to recalculate the stake each time simply tick the 'Use <LB>' box. Also note that if you enter <LB> when in the middle of a recovery cycle it will reset the recovery cycle. You will automatically be no longer be in a recovery cycle and the next stake will reflect this.
