Yes that would be martingale. Include the stakes and odds and we could see that. And chill out ffs.

Another issue that's forgotten when using progressive staking including Martingale is the additional amount of time you will need to spend on site. If you are flat staking you can get your bets on in the morning and go about the rest of your day, if you have multiple selections on the same day determining the size of future bets you need to be monitoring results and adjusting your stakes. It's additional time, and how much is your time worth to you. It's another assessment that needs to be made whenever you are testing or piloting a new approach to see whether it is 'worth it'.
No more time than you would need to bet a flat stake system to its potential.
A good market judge easily gets 10-15% better odds by monitoring the market and picking and choosing prices.
If you have a succesful punting strategy that makes you money with flat stakes, you are out of your mind if you are simply putting all your bets on at the start of the day and taking whatever odds you can get. If you have a 10% edge at SP, you are mad not to sit there and shop around and more than double that edge through savvy price chasing.
