In roulette, if you begin by betting one dollar on red, then double
your bet if you lose, and double again if you lose again...but return
to your initial bet of one when you finally win, you will break the
bank one dollar at a time, and the odds of ever losing all your money,
if you have a significant stockpile, are small enough to be
inconsequential.  Is this true?
