"First, may I assure any reader that this is a true unsolicited testimonial.
After careful review and personal testing may I say that the IBS4 System comes out head and shoulders above any of the many other "systems" I've examined and/or personally played in the casino. The implementation of the system itself requires one to be diligent and alert in keeping tabs on the proper bet placement. However, Izak even addresses and covers that scenario offering other simpler options to those who might be interested. I must say that anyone who possesses simple patience and the ability to follow instructions will find that the IBS4 system is nothing short of "The Holy Grail" of betting systems. Its ability to produce consistent profits is simply amazing. Based on my testing and personal results in live casino play I would say that anybody who takes casino investing seriously must have IBS4 in their arsenal of play. The price is negligible compared to the attainable rewards."
"one further step ahead towards perfection"
IBS4 - the Infallible Baccarat System - Version 4.0
by Izak Matatya
"applies to all even paying games, i.e. Roulette, Baccarat, Craps and Sic-Bo."
Can one modify something that is perfect? The answer is yes. Because, there is really no such thing as perfection. According to the late famous pianist Vladimir Horowitz, perfection is something we strive for, never reaching it, and there are unlimited ways to improve something.
IBS4 - the new Infallible Baccarat System - Version 4.0 is one further step ahead towards perfection. The previous versions of IBS have been told to be the best gambling systems ever designed. The only inconvenience was the requirement of a relatively larger bankroll. Well, IBS4 resolves this problem, by cutting the bankroll needed by at least 5 fold without losing any efficiency whatsoever.
As a matter of fact, with a 200 unit bankroll, IBS4 is able to beat all tester books and millions of randomly generated decisions with an average profit of 1500 units for every 10,000 decisions/spins very consistently or 9.5 unit profit per Baccarat shoe in average.
The name Infallible should not be misleading. No system can win every run, particularly when the table goes against every single bet you make. With IBS4, you will win so many runs, that even if you may abandon some with a certain accepted loss, it will be very negligible relative to the huge number of the ones you have won and your profits will exceed your losses by far. And with the quantity of consecutive runs you will win, you will feel you are using a quasi infallible system.
Yes, IBS4 can be used for all even paying games, such as Baccarat, Roulette, Craps, Sic-Bo and Casino War. One can use it on all even bets for Reds/Blacks, Even/Odd, High/Low in Roulette, Player/Banker in Baccarat, Pass-Line/Don't Pass Line in Craps, Big Small in Sic-Bo and War.
IBS4 has a unique bet selection never seen before in any system. It identifies patterns of decisions in several layers and manages to group wins and losses in such a way, that becomes ideal for IBS4 to beat. People who are acquainted with the previous versions of IBS, particularly IBS3, know very well what happens if say 8-14 consecutive losses are terminated by 2-3 consecutive wins. As a matter of fact any number of consecutive losses followed by a few wins is terminated by a winning run with a minimal bankroll in IBS4.
One does not bet on every single decision according to IBS4's bet selection. There will be at times certain small interruptions to wait for the right moment. However, one does end up betting over 75% of all bets, which does not constitute a problem for all tables or casino policies.
As per the bet method, IBS4 has been optimized from the previous version IBS3 to use much less bankroll without losing its basic concept and structure. Unlike any other gambling system, a very long losing streak is terminated by a winning run, without draining your bankroll. This is done in a very smart way, most efficiently and with a very strong logic.
After all, how do we expect to win in gambling? Martingale's double up system wants you to win at your very first win and keeps doubling up on every loss. And what if you are to lose for the next 15-25 bets? That would wipe out your bankroll immediately and you will reach table limits very soon. And why should someone be ahead at the very first win? What's the rush? It's dangerous and inefficient. IBS4 adjusts your bets in such a way that long losing strings or streaks do not affect your session bankroll by much. You are really in action when you start winning and that's the way it should be.
The IBS4 document has been written in a totally independent manner of the previous versions of IBS. Therefore, if you do not possess any previous versions, one can fully understand the document and use IBS4 fully on its own.
IBS4 goes for $140, as it's the best system out there, no doubt about it. It provides the best performance ever, with an optimized bankroll usage.
Your full satisfaction is guaranteed. If the system's performance is not to your liking, which I doubt very much, you can ask for a full refund within 30 days of your purchase, and, as you all know, I always honor my guarantees.

Frequently Asked Questions on IBS4 - the Infallible Baccarat System - Version 4.0
by Izak Matatya
Some very positive feedback was received by purchasers:
"Playing with 200 units bankroll and 50 units maximum bet, I have made 350 units so far"
"I think IBS4 is a strong bet method"
And now the questions and answers:
Q: I just read your newsletter introducing IBS version 4. Very impressive stats.
What is the absolute minimum session bankroll required to play IBS4 at peak efficiency?
What is the highest required unit bet in the system's progression?
Can one play the system without pen and paper?
Thanks, Izak. Take care.
A: IBS4 feels safe with a 200 unit bankroll. The highest bet is adjusted to whatever your budget allows. The system works very well, if you tell the system, that your highest bet will be not more than say 45 units and there are guidelines to bet according to this type of maximum bet.
One could play it without pen and paper after a few hours of practice, but not with the IBS4's bet selection, which is very hard to play without. Should you decide to use an alternate bet selection, such as betting on the Player side only, IBS4 will still perform very well, as it doesn't need more than 25-30% of all bets to be won and playing the Player side only will give you 47% on the long run.
Q: If I'm playing at a $5 table what would be my lifetime bankroll?
A: The required bankroll for IBS4 is 200 units for a session buy-in, which is the maximum needed. Should any run fail with that amount (it hasn't yet), that would be an accepted loss for that session, where one resets and moves on. IBS4 generated 1500 units within 10,000 Zumma decisions and the remaining 30,000 decisions have been visually verified to produce similar profits. I would expect the -200 units to occur about once or twice within the 40,000 Zumma decisions and still maintain a win rate of 8.2 units profit in average per shoe.
So a lifetime bankroll of 400 units would be ample and your buy-in 200 to be on the safe side. Normally, the highest bet will not exceed about 40 units and if it should there are special techniques to avoid it and/or to reduce it.
If your unit side is $5, then $1000 will be enough for a buy-in and $2000 for a lifetime bankroll.
Q: Has it been tested against craps databases? because craps is notoriously less streaky than baccarat or roulette?
A: Yes, it has been checked for all games involving even (1:1) paying bets.
IBS4 doesn't really care if the table is streaky or choppy. Its bet selection groups betting decisions in such a way to gather losses and wins together. Multiple losses followed by multiple wins is what makes IBS4 win very consistently. When no grouping can take place, then one does not bet. It's a very original and particular bet selection, never seen before.
Q: Hi Izak, Have you tested all through the Zumma 600? If so what's the final results on this system, winning one spin at a time?
A: I tested 12,207 decisions of Zumma and it generated +1696 units without losing a single run.
Q: Unless my math is off, if you have 600 shoes and average 60 decisions per shoe which is probably off a bit from the actuals, that would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 40,000 decisions.
Why did you stop short of testing the entire 600 shoes?
A: Yes, 600 shoes is 40,007 decisions in Zumma averaging about 67 decisions per shoe.
The test was conducted manually, as I don't have a fully automated simulation for IBS4. My programming skills are limited and I could not implement all the rules. So I entered the IBS4 scheme manually and it took me a few months to punch in figures for 12,007 decisions.
However, I did go through the remaining 30,000 decisions visually. I know exactly how IBS4 works and which runs are very easy to complete and which runs are a bit tougher to complete. The first 12,007 had no problems to complete successfully. The remaining 30,000 had no major difficulties either by going through them without entering all the figures. I would presume, there could be one or maximum two runs, that could be abandoned with an accepted loss of the 200 units, the session buy in.
By induction, if 12,000 decisions generated 1600 units, 40,000 decisions would generate 3.3 times as much, or 5300 units. Subtract from this two potential abandoned runs of 200 units each or 400 units, it still leaves you with a profit of 4900 units for 40,000 decisions or 600 shoes, or 8.2 units profit per shoe including all losses.
The reason I was able see the above is the because IBS4's particular bet selection IS fully automated for the entire 40,007 Zumma and random decisions, producing sequences of wins and losses. And by the proper grouping of those, one could very easily see where a run starts and where it ends.
Q: What betting limits are needed for the betting system? The roulette tables in my area are usually pretty bad, 1-30 or 1-60 spread. Would it work for those types of betting spreads on a roulette wheel?
No baccarat here but plenty of craps tables with 1-400 spreads.
A: IBS4 is so flexible, that players themselves set their own maximum bets and the system adjusts itself accordingly. IBS4 will do very well if you set your maximum bet not to exceed 40-50 units, thus betting ranges of 1-50 would be quite adequate.
Q: If a player adjusts his/her maximum bet not to exceed a certain max unit bet is that going to cause a session loss where otherwise it would not, if the max unit bet was set higher?
A: No, that won't cause a session loss. It would simply reduce the size of the bets by using the special techniques documented in the system.
Q: So if I set my max bet at 15 one day and go back the next day and set it at 40 there would be no difference in performance?
A: 15 as a maximum bet is a bit on the low side for IBS4. After all, it's still a system with a progression. A maximum bet of 40-50 will perform quite well.
In a lot of runs, even a maximum of 15 units will be sufficient. But a 40 maximum will perform better, as there will be some runs requiring higher bets and they will close easier.
However, it's not a question of a performance of one day versus another. For the same run, if you set your maximum bet to be 35 or 55, IBS4 will perform equally well and will take the same number of bets to close the run.
Q: Izak, are your average wins of 8.2 units per shoe before or after commission? Is the system's success mainly due to the bet selection or progression? Will the bet selection win flat betting? Thanks...
A: The 8.2 units are after commissions. In fact, IBS4 documents a very solid method about how to eliminate commissions. It practically converts the minus 5 percent Banker win commissions into a plus 3 percent bonus.
So, if, for instance, you are aiming for $100 profit at the end of the run, because of this method, you will earn $103, as opposed to $95. Whoever has IBS4 will read how this is done in the last 2 pages.
The system's success is due to the combination of the bet selection and the bet method. The bet selection manages to group wins and losses in such a way, that multiple wins follow multiple losses, which is ideal for IBS4 to close the runs.
The bet selection did not win Zumma's 600 shoes with flat bets. The results for 40,007 decisions were:
no. of wins: 12752
no. of losses: 12806
When running the simulation for 40,000 random bets, though, the bet selection does produce more wins more than not:
Here are some samples from random runs for 40,007 decisions:
no. of wins: 12803
no. of losses: 12814
no. of wins: 12952
no. of losses: 12691
no. of wins: 12826
no. of losses: 12795
no. of wins: 13019
no. of losses: 12811
So, at times wins exceed losses by about 200 units, sometimes the losses exceed the wins by 50-100 units.
It may work on the long run, but the profits of 100-200 units per 40,000 decisions are very slow, unless you bet high amounts.
Q: Is the progression itself different from the other IBS's or is only the selection different?
A: In IBS4 both the bet selection and the method are different from the previous versions. The idea of the cancellation method remains the same, but there are many new special betting techniques that have been introduced in order to reduce the overall bankroll requirements.
What do you think about using your bet progression on a betting scheme like Perry's IPL? Since his flat bet selection method seems to produce more wins than losses, would it be fairly effective to combine the two?
Or, do you think that your bet selection method is more appropriate to the progression such that one should not separate the two?
What's different between this and your FPP? They sound similar in execution and results.
What is the average bet per closed run?
What about playing the progression on BJ?
A: IBS4 will work with most bet selections. If Perry's wins more than 50%, it will surely work with it, too.
FPP and IBS4 are two totally different systems, both in bet selection and the bet method. IBS4 is more powerful. It wins many more runs. I hardly ever had to abandon one.
With a maximum bet of 40 units, IBS4 does very well. An average bet size is about 17 units.
You can surely use IBS4's bet method with Blackjack. In case of double down, or splitting, you register losses and wins in the scheme in stages.
Q: I can't see being allowed to use a pen and paper at a blackjack table to write down a cancellation method of betting.
A: Outside of Blackjack, you should be able to use pen and paper for any other game. For Blackjack you can use some stack of chips ordered in a certain way to give you hints on where you stand (or hit...:))
Q: OK and how does your bet selection method work for blackjack if its just you against the dealer? How can your bet selection group wins to the advantage of you IBS4 betting system if you can't use a bet selection method?
A: It wouldn't make sense to use the bet selection for Blackjack. For Blackjack one would use the basic strategy and IBS4 would be applied for the bet method only, varying the amounts of your bets based on the sequence of wins and losses.
Q: I'm wondering if there would be any difference between using IBS-4 in a live casino vs. a reputable on-line casino like 888.com.
A: There would be no difference in IBS4's performance. In an on-line environment, you have more time to calculate and place your next bet.
Q: Can IBS4 be adapted for Matrix sports betting system? If so, will the results be better?
A: Actually, quite a lot of people inquired about that, have bought Matrix with IBS4 and are using it in sports betting very successfully, as it requires much less bankroll than IBS3. Results won't be much better, but it will take much less bankroll to close runs with profits.
Q: Hi Izak, interesting offer; would Matrix also be applicable to sport bets placed through Betfair?
A: The Matrix is applicable to all sports betting possibilities for OVER/UNDER type of bets or spreads with a certain vig for all environments.
Thank you all for your valuable questions.
Feedback and Success Stories on IBS4 and Holiday Specials
There are lots of success stories on the new IBS4 system being used since its launch in October. I would like to share one customer's continuous report and feedback on his usage of IBS4 in conjunction with the Matrix Sports Betting System.
Date: 11-14-08 18:40
People are asking for feedback so here is my experience so far. I purchased IBS4 and Matrix Sports Betting for a combined price of $525 during the promotional period.
After studying the IBS4 manual, I then tried to get a feel for the system rules by playing red and black on roulette using a computer game I have. I played maybe 10 sessions of 30 spins each and all sessions were winners.
Then I set up my Matrix spreadsheet like I wanted, maximum of 32 bets. Fortunately NBA was just about to start up so I started the Matrix betting on the first day of regular season. It is 17 days into the season now and I have resolved 101 runs and thus won 101 units or 5.94 units per day. The largest bet in a run so far has been 32 units. The Matrix is quite a bit of work but I will be earning 160 units or more per month until the end of NBA season so it will be worth it to me.
I have seen IBS3 and think that IBS4 is a big improvement. You have a lot more flexibility to resolve runs. At first I did not like this, I like a mechanical method. But then I saw that this flexibility is somewhat mechanical in nature and would allow for all runs to be resolved if one were patient. I could be wrong (I will let you know after basketball season is over) but I don't really see how even the most disastrous run could not be resolved with patience using the flexibility of the IBS4 rules.
Those are my impressions and experiences thus far.
Date: 11-15-08 20:16
Sorry it should be 109 units won, not 108.
Date: 11-15-08 20:20
109 units in 18 days in over 6 units per day. If that rate continues and I am able to resolve all runs I will have between 900 and 1000 units won by the end of the season. That would be nice.
Date: 11-15-08 21:46
Question for the reporter:
What is your
a) regular bankroll
b) conservative bankroll
c) expected ROI% per month (non-compounded) over the course of the NBA season
Date: 11-15-08 23:03
I think Izak recommends 300 units for Matrix and so far that would have been adequate. Time will tell on that question. You have money tied up in the open runs (which you will get back at the end of the season when all runs are allowed to resolve) and you need money to bet for that particular day which can be up to 32 bets in my case.
Let's say you want to play it safe and use 600 units. If you win 165 units per month that is 27.5% return per month.
In my particular situation I am using the same account I use for my other sports and horse betting and Matrix is another income stream added to the equation so I did not really think about bankroll since I have ample there already.
Date: 11-25-08 16:59
I have an update and more comments on my use of IBS4/Matrix. As of yesterday I have resolved 161 runs and won 161 units. I have set an upper limit of 40 units on any one bet. I have had to limit a few bets and the maximum bet so far has been 38 units. These troublesome runs have ended up resolving in the end.
One thing I have noticed today, although technically I should have won 161 units or 5.75 units per day over the last 28 days, I actually am winning more than that. This is due the rounding I am doing in the bets. If I lose $61.60 for example, I enter that as $62 dollars lost. I did this just to simplify things for myself. Apparently this adds up though, since you round and bet again and if it loses you round up again. I calculate that I am winning an extra 0.96 units per day so far just because of the rounding. So my actual units won is an average of 6.71 units per day over the last 28 days. At this rate in the typical 30 day month, you win 201 units. This should be about 1100 units by the end of the NBA season.
Another thing that would boost your return is the use of halftime bets. I have my Matrix set up for a maximum of 32 bets per day. Sometimes there are not 32 bets to be had, however. If your book offers halftime bets you could add these into the mix and most likely get the full 32 bets on most days. I have not done this yet but am considering it.
Professional sports that would work with Matrix are NBA, NFL, WNBA, CFL. NBA is November through May. NFL is September through January so you could fill in some missing bets with NFL if you need to. College football and basketball could also be used to fill in missing bets during the fall/winter/spring. WNBA and CFL run during the summer so you could even run a smaller version of Matrix in summer months and earn money all year round.
I will provide update from time to time to let you know how the system is performing.
Date: 12-01-08 16:58
End of month update on IBS4/Matrix.
At the end of November I am 34 days into the NBA season. I have resolved 206 runs and won 206 units (actually a bit more due to rounding as mentioned in a previous post). I did have to limit the bet size of a couple of bets in a troublesome run this week at 39 units (40 units is my max). I was happy to see that this run resolved successfully yesterday.
The last several days I have been trying to fill in missing bets in the Matrix by using college basketball, college football, NFL, and also half time bets in NBA and NFL. I have been able to place all 32 bets each day this week and will attempt to continue this. This will increase my return which currently is a theoretical 6.05 units per day. This is probably closer to 7 units per day due to the rounding.
So far I am impressed with the steady returns of this method. You have money tied up in the open runs so it takes 2 to 3 weeks before you actually see any growth in your account. After 34 days, however, I am solidly in the black and it should stay that way until the end of the season. At that time I will either let all runs resolve and thus get back all the money tied up in the open runs, or will pare down the number of open runs so that I can transition into the WNBA/CFL summer season.
Thanks, I will provide updates periodically on the system performance.
Date: 12-05-08 16:33
IBS4/Matrix update and observations.
I am 38 days into the NBA season and have resolved 238 runs, winning 238 units so far, an average of 6.26 units won per day.
I have been successful recently in placing the entire 32 bets in my matrix each day using other sports bets available which meet Matrix requirements to fill in missing NBA bets. I have averaged all days since the beginning of the season which have had the full 32 bets and have found that the average gain is 7.7 units per day. This strategy will increase returns in the long run.
One thing I have noticed is the amount of money tied up in the open runs is climbing. I am guessing this is due to vigorish recovery and rounding. I am afraid that before the end of the NBA season the money tied up in open runs may climb too high and possibly become a problem. Because of this possibility, I am going to allow all my runs to resolve starting today, effectively cashing out the money invested in open runs. After this process is complete, I plan to implement a cycling approach to Matrix, one of the options mentioned in the manual.
I am very interested in how long it will take for all runs to resolve. About 24% of runs resolve each day so I am thinking 14 to 21 days unless there are one or two stubborn runs that require more time.
Thanks, I will continue to update the system performance as the days progress.
Question for the reporter:
I am following your results closely. The escalating open runs is exactly the problem I had with original Matrix betting strategy. I was hoping that IBS-4 had resolved the big open run drawdown problem. Keep us posted. Thanks.
Date: 12-07-08 17:11
Thanks, I am glad that you find the information useful. I will continue to post updates from time to time. Yes, I see now that the continuous strategy may not be the best way to use the system. I think the cycling approach will perform about as well with smaller bankroll requirements.
I feel that IBS4 is an excellent even bets system. The drawdown should be much less than IBS3. I just let the Matrix cycle go on for too many days. The vigorish recovery compounds as does the rounding. I probably should have brought this first cycle to an end sooner than I did. Experience is one of the best teachers.
Currently I have resolved 13 of the 32 runs and have 19 more to go. 244 units won so far. 40 days into the cycle so 6.1 units won per day. I am pleased with IBS4/Matrix so far. This first cycle will be a very profitable one once all the runs finally resolve.
I was wondering when you said you had to bet 39 units and you max is 40, what would have happened if you lost the bet? Do you go on to bet 40? And, if you lost at this point, how many units would you lose in total?
Date: 12-09-08 16:10
The biggest bet I have lost this cycle was 36 units. I just recorded the loss as normal. That brought my open loss up to 76 units in that run. The run ended up resolving successfully 4 days later.
If the normal IBS4 rules dictate a bet higher than 40, I use the alternate rules to bring the bet down below 40. This seems less risky to me. Also you have sportsbook betting limits to deal with. If you were betting a larger unit size and were using 40 units as maximum bet, then your maximum unit size would be the sportsbook betting limit divided by 40. For example, if the sportsbook maximum bet was $3000 then your unit size could be no larger than $75 if 40 units was your max bet.
Just to update, I have resolved 18 of the 32 runs now and have 14 more to go. My account is growing as the the runs resolve and fall away. 249 units won or 5.93 units per day.
Date: 12-12-08 16:46
IBS4/ Matrix update.
I have successfully resolved 25 of the 32 open runs, 7 more to go. 256 units won this cycle or 5.68 units per day. It has only taken 8 days to resolve 25 of the runs, pretty impressive. The resolution process has gone very smoothly thus far.
Date: 12-17-08 16:42
Slow going since last post. I have successfully resolved 28 of the 32 runs, 4 more to go. 259 units won, 5.18 units won per day. Seems like the fewer open runs you have left, the slower it goes, which makes sense, I guess. 13 days into the resolution process so this is well within the 14 to 21 days time frame I was anticipating. Everything is going according to plan.
I do not know how this system works so I am curious if you are well in profit taking the open runs in account?
Date: 12-18-08 16:47
Oh yes, well into profit. I resolved another run yesterday so I have 3 more to go. I am ahead an actual 246 units or so and have only about 25 units left in the open runs to resolve. So most of the money has already been made. When I finish these last 3 runs it will be done and I can start another cycle.
If you will notice 246 + 25 = 271 units. Theoretically I should make 263 units after these last 3 runs are resolved so I have done a little better than I should have due to rounding I think.
Thanks I hope it continues for you.
Date: 12-26-08 15:44
IBS4/Matrix update ... end of cycle
I finally completed this first Matrix cycle and have the final numbers. The total cycle was 58 days which included 37 days at full betting and then 21 days to resolve the open runs. All runs were resolved successfully. The 21 day resolution process was within the 14 to 21 day period I was expecting.
263 units were won which is 4.53 units per day. I actually earned a little more than this due to rounding and vigorish recovery. 1129 total bets were placed. Out of these only 6 bets had to be limited at 40 units, which I had chosen as my maximum bet.
All in all the cycle went smoothly and IBS4 performed well. I think Izak tested 12,207 decisions when putting together the IBS4 system, so you can add another 1129 decisions to that. I feel that IBS4 is an excellent even bets system and Matrix is a very clever way to apply this to the sports betting arena. Looking forward to many more months/years of future earnings with this combination.
Thanks. Any questions, let me know.
This is very encouraging, I thank you very much for your feedback.
Wishing you continuous success and happy holidays to all.
IBS4 has a price tag of $140 and it's worth every penny.
Wishing you all the best,
