One of the hardest working and most documented threads here in PA are the Formula Exacta Plays. I believe his method to be looking for exacta overlays based on tote board odds, but I'm not sure. I think with all his work here, he deserves a discussion. So if you have followed him at one time or another, please share your thoughts.

I really don't know. I have seen it here posting on PA almost daily for a long time and was hoping that whoever is posting would jump in and tell us about their product.

Long time poster here.
Search on his handle and there are lots of threads where he discusses many of his ideas.

To tell you (and f-2002 the truth.... he doesn't seem very "approachable". Similar to ANER...was a man on a mission--didn't seem to want any feedback.

He's not selling anything? Just posts?

I've looked in on it, but I don't understand what I'm looking at.

I don't either.

For those who have been around a long time, Formula used to argue that there was absolutely no way you could win betting races, and he never seemed to understand that you don't have to bet every race. People tried for YEARS to get him to understand this, but he never did. It's very amusing that a decade later he's back with some exacta system that no one understands and he won't explain, yet he posts hundreds of times about. I don't think he actually bets, or he didn't years ago, he just researches stuff "for fun".

Isn't he the guy who more recently came up with the idea of a profitable CRAPS system, and then a profitable BACCARAT system...and he was posting detailed accounts of his craps and baccarat plays?

You mean he was serious about that stuff?

This thread just caught my eye. Just about everything mentioned is somewhat correct.
I don't bet. However if I discovered a solid method of play I most certainly would.
In the meantime I get a lot of pleasure working on this stuff.
Actually, I have worked on it for over 40 years.
I have posted profitable runs of a few hundred races, but nothing seems to last.
As far as craps and baccarat, those post simply indicate actual computer tests of a method of play. The results are above the "long term rate of return".
It just goes to show you what is possible within the "short term". As my tag line states, it is easier to get lucky in a low vig game.

Thanks for your reply. You are probably the only horse player that I know that thoroughly tests his app before using it. Good luck to you.

Just wondered. He's a hard working guy.

Gentlemen, believe me, if had something worth selling, there would be plenty who would by :)

Until then I'll just keep plodding along.

I'm thankful for PA's web site.. It's has saved me fortune.

We all need a way to express ourselves, either here or betting windows.
Do they still have people manning the betting windows
