(1) If you don't bet, you can't win.
(2) If you lose all your chips, you can't bet.

For a system where the probability of failure for a trade is 55%, the probability of facing a minimum of K consecutive losing trades in 100 total trades is

K probability
-------------------
5 92.05%
6 72.9%
7 49.71%
8 30.68%
9 17.87%
10 10.09%
11 5.6%
12 3.08%
13 1.68%
14 0.92%
15 0.5%

Allowing profits to run + correct position sizing for the given trade risk = long-term success in the face of expected drawdowns.
