# Fibonacci

The basis of the Fibonacci system is the Fibonacci sequence. This sequence was devised by an Italian mathematician Leonardo Pisan in the 12th century. This sequence can be found in many natural things such as in the curve of some shells, the arc of a wave or how rabbits procreate.

The Fibonacci sequence is as follows:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55...

You can get the next number by adding the previous two numbers.

In the game of blackjack, this Fibonacci system can be used in a similar way like the labouchere system. You start from the base unit of one and when you win you start again. However, if you lose, you continue to increase your bet according to the sequence. When you win, the previous two numbers will be erased. You continue like this until all the numbers are crossed out. Let us give you an example:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8

If you start from the base unit of $1, then at the fifth lose you will bet $8. So, if you win this, you get $8. However, you have lost $12 so far. So, you cross out the last two numbers and you get 1, 1, 2 and if you add them up it will be $4. This is the amount you have to recover. So, carry this out till the last two numbers are crossed out. Next time you bet for $3. If you win, then bet $1. You will continue like this until you have reached the pre determined win limit in the Fibonacci system.

This Fibonacci system is often compared with the martingale system as both require you to increase the bet when you lose. However, this system is less radical as you do not double the bet. There is no guarantee that you can win if you follow this system. However, it is less risky compared to the martingale system and it will take a long time for you to reach the table limit in this system.
