# Lay Single Step Recovery Staking Plan

The Lay Single Step Recovery staking plan tries to recover all the losses in one step. Every betting sequence starts with a base stake equal to a fixed percent of the bank. The percent value can be applied to initial, current or highest bank.

After each race the cumulative profit of the betting sequence is calculated. If the value is:

**Positive**: the staking plan moves to a new betting sequence.**Negative**: the total sequence deficit is added to the base stake. The sum represents the total stake for the next race. When multiple selections qualify for the race the total stake is split equally among the qualified selections.

In order to limit the losses in case of long losing runs, a maximum value for the total stake can be set.

## Settings

The following parameters can be configured in this staking plan:

**Percent of X bank to bet**: the value of the base stake expressed as percent of the bank.**X**: the type of bank to which the percent value is applied:**initial**: the percent value is applied to initial bank.**current**: the percent value is applied to current bank.**highest**: the percent value is applied to highest bank.

**Stake must not exceed X****% of current bank**: the maximum value allowed for the total stake in a race, expressed as percent of current bank.**While not in recovery, split total stake when multiple selections qualify**: this option splits the total stake equally among multiple selections in a race. When the option is not used the total stake is placed for each qualified selection. This setting applies only when the betting sequence does not have a negative cumulative profit.
