I must admit that my start has been far better than I thought it would.
From my opening bank of $250 I've netted:
1. $125 * $3.00
2. $250 * $2.10
which now has the bank with $775 and to be honest I am too scared to bet half the bank this week. Not that I am worried of generally losing a large sum of money as I've done so on many occassions, but moreso the reason for the investment in the first place so what I may do is the following:
1. remove the inital bank of $250 so that I'm now punting on profit alone (and hope that it may continue)
2. remove $275 from the remaining $525 and bank it in my reserve bank, which will then leave me with $250 which was my inital wager. If I can triple the money again from the inital $250, then I'll bank the money and start from the inital $250. On the flip side, if I reach a stage where my bank is less than $100, I will then top it up from my reserve bank (which I hope doesn't happen).
reserve bank $275
current bank $250
