First game: Bet 50 on team A
Second game: Bet 50 on team A

if team A wins 2, you win 100
if team A looses 2, you win 100
otherwise you're at 0 for the third game, so

Third game: Bet 100 on either team

 Posted: Tue Apr 04, 2006 3:38 am    Post subject: A puzzle... Two teams play a best of three series. You bet on each game. How should you bet so that at the end of the series, regardless of the outcome, your total winnings is \$100 or your total loss is \$100. Each bet is 1:1, that is, for example, if you bet \$20, you either win extra \$20 or you lose your \$20.
