### Re: Advanced Mafia Calculus e1

Certainly, it depends on your measurement system and your priorities. The difference in E(profit) between 9800 and 250 is only 10. God knows how many bets you'd have to make before you notice the...

### Re: Advanced Mafia Calculus e1

If my understanding is correct, that'd mean that when B<9800 the equation radically simplified because the 10,000's are replaceed with "200+B" in the original equation I posted:

E(profit)=0.25*(...

So, after all the bets are made, if someone's bet is larger than the sum of the other bets, their bet gets reduced to the sum of the other bets?

### Re: Advanced Mafia Calculus e1

Now that I think about it, it makes sense that betting between 1 and 2 thousand is the best. It's high enough to drown out your opponent's gains if the 10,000 loses, while still being a very small...

### Re: Advanced Mafia Calculus e1

One can demonstrate that the average profit can be written as a function of the player's bet, like so:

E(profit)=0.25*( (10,000B)/(B+200) + (200B)/(B+10,100) - B )

Then, one can differentiate...
