This is an overall guideline to a setup for organized team play. There are several pages besides what i published here, but it remains in my safe. Just giving you some thoughts you might wanna work with. The setup is based on a team already operating in Europe. I have only given what i have, to still keep the team safe and operational.
Usually team play aren`t really for VB players, but there are some obvious advantages. First of all, Roulette AP is a game of patience. When you are tracking, the time can be really really long. Hers a few advantages:
1. A wheel can be tracked constantly by working in shifts.
2. A wheel can be played in shifts, for maximum gain.
3. The bankroll is bigger and the payout better.
4. Tracking can be continued with a tracker at the same time a BP is hitting the table. (2 people) So the BP don`t have to take notes.

[*]How to scout Key Games-Includes everything from
- Ball types and scatter patterns
- Wheel types
- Tilt degree
- Visual Bias
- Conditions of +4.5 SD playable
- Calling of NMB
- Calc. of ROR and bankroll versus possible gain
Daily updates on the wheel data
Possibly recalculation of data if maintenence has taken place.
Exit point should be fixed, so comparison of data is possible
 Thumper or other external device might be a possible “Must” to ensure equal exits in between members.
Projecting the possible outcome of an average session, given the specific wheel data and NMB conditions.
Payout rates or Money target ? (head for 50K win and split the bank and start out again)
1, 2 or 3 Month sessions before split of bank
Kelly Betting to the extent where the chip handling is still “handy”
Imagine a 8 man team where 4 played and 4 were tracking and were releaving the player so no one played more than 1 hour at a time. Could maybe be done with 6 players. Ofcourse also only by 4 players, but the benefits of someone standing “above” the game watching and tracking without getting emotional involved would be gone then. Tracking and MO of the wheel should ofcourse be done before play, but the purpose of the extra tracker when the BP is on, is to have the BP play freely without any notes, and let the tracker step in and stop the play if something looks fishy compared to the previous tracking results which is the base for the BPer.
Basieux has made a simulation of a play where 6 numbers are played with a total edge of 10.36% after tips. (35p - 6 =35(7/37) - 6 = 10.36%
The simulation is done as a simultanously play on 4 tables 50 spins 30 days in a row. 3 simulations of 50 spins on 4 tables is done. You can`t see each tables results, i can in the simulation but so far this is as deep i will go. I have then taken the liberty to simply call sim 1 for the first 50 spins. Sim 2 is 51 - 100 and sim 3 is 101 - 150.
I think we get the picture though. Looks like this:
If you look at the coloumn “Accumulation pr day” you will see that there are 3 days that finished with a loss despite a “fixed” edge (simulated edge). Interesting is also that day 30 actually had a loss over 400 units. And that the 4 tables after 50 spins were down -220 units.
The average win pr. day is +371 units. Imagine we split them in 8 parts = 46 units. Imagine expenses is 200 euro pr. day and you wanna bring back 600 euro pr day for the household.
The calc is then: 800/46 = 17.39 Euro
So the base bet would be around 20 Euro as an absoloute base. To cover scouting costs, it would probably be closer to 25 - 30 Euro pr base unit. With winnings of 11140 units pr months we are talking a winning budget of 30 x 11140 = 334.200 Euro
What would the bankroll be ? Well a risk of ruin of 1% and a 10% edge gives you the number 733 Units. Pr player. Roughly 3000 units of 30 euros = 90.000 Euros/8players = 11.250 Euro for each player. Now, there is an effect when playing simultanously on 4 tables. According to Basieux we don`t need the double capital when playing 2 tables simoultanously but only SQR2 = 1.41 the capital for 1 table. If we transfer this to our play we will have SQR4 = 2 x the capital (733). = 2 x 733 = 1466 units.
So basicly we need 1466 x 30 = 43980 Euro/8 players 5497 Euros. With Kelly betting and the possibility of degression to 25 and 20 euros, it might be enough.
