We discuss the results of the experiment with a biased coin (60% heads vs 40% tails) and the optimal bankroll and money management techniques for betting, wagering, investing and gambling.

Is it possible to lose long term when picking 60% winners? Can you bet too little or too much when the outcome is 60/40 in your favour? We discuss this and more.
