I think he'd be better off splitting the difference and taking a few numbers. If he takes $21 a number for 2 numbers he still makes up over $700 and is only down $400 going in. That'd give him a big lead going into the last event if everybody else stays level (and maybe a huge lead if they lose). Unless the field is very large and others are also likely to have a big score this round I'd think at the minimum two numbers is better than one, and he'd probably be better off splitting it up even further.
Agree I wouldn't put it on lower paying wagers like red/black though (if the format is what it looks to be on first glance).
