Sorry if this comes across as too critical but if being down 18 units wipes out your bankroll, you are betting too much as a % of bankroll. You should be able to easily withstand being down 18 units. Assuming a unit is $100 you'd be down $1800. If your bankroll was close to that, say $2000, then using $100 as a unit is way too high especially using a Martingale chase. An opening game of -184 would mean you are risking 9.2% of bankroll which is about 5 times or more (?) than the recommended amount for sound money management.
Your system killed it last year, it would be a shame to abandon it because of a single 3 game chase loss.
