Loss recoupment for a losing bet only

This staking plan differs from others, because it does not recoup the cumulative loss from the previous market. Instead it recoups the loss from a single losing bet, even if other bets in that market won.

Example: lay on three selections, each with a fixed amount. If one of the bet lost (i.e. the selection won), divide the loss from this single bet between the next three bets. If one of those lost as well, then add up the loss and divide it between the next three bets and so on. If all three bets won, start the sequence over.

The file consists of 5 triggers. The first trigger, called "defining the maximum bet size", defines the maximum size of a lay bet. If this limit is reached, the loss is no longer added up, and the sequence starts over.

The second trigger, "how many selections to lay on", defines the number of selections to lay on. In the given example this number is 3. Please note: if you want to change this number, edit the "Value" field of this trigger, and also correct the conditions of the laying trigger, as presently it picks the third, fourth and fifth favourites.

The third and fourth trigger initialise a user variable called "bet_loss". This variable will contain the amount of loss to be recouped. It changes depending on the previous market's P/L.

Finally, the fifth trigger, "laying on (num_of_sels) selections", lays on the three chosen selections. You certainly can change the conditions of this trigger according to your own needs.

This is an example of how the triggers will work.
