Re: your personal craps rules

There is something to be said about having bets paid for. One of my favorites is a DP or DC bet and a 2 or 3 is thrown and then a 10.

Re: your personal craps rules

Have to interject here re: Stingray's "do not play craps if you are tired." ALSO..do not play if you are pre-occupied with something else such as an obligation. Anything that prevents you from being free and clear while you're playing will screw with your toss number one. I can vouch for this.

Re: Heavy's Hydra System Questions

What buy in are we talking here when using some of these ideas? Are we talking 10% of yr. buy in or 20%. Say $500 gives me, a ten percenter $50 bucks to work with at the start. I've found it more profitable to have a $10 PL and jump on the 5 and 9 for $20 each the way I throw. A quick $28 bucks allo...

Re: your personal craps rules

I tend not to leave my no bets up for long. If the seven doesn't show up in 3 or 4 rolls and numbers around them are being hit, I pull them. I don't like waiting. Anyway all good answers here. Damn if I don't encounter randies who throw monsters for some reason! That's why I look for trash numbers s...

Re: Working the mean

Yes. All truths. Does reduce profit. And reverse is true. What fascinates me about this discussion..and it is a truth, that even if your throw feels good, looks good, and you are throwing numbers to yr. set..it may still be variance! It's sort of like religion. You gotta believe you have something e...

Re: Working the mean

And if you have the edge, don't hedge the edge? I'm saying, new day, new table..or at least one you haven't played in a while..are you on your game instantly? Do you actually have an edge? I've seen DI's crash and burn. But maybe you guys never have. Maybe you trust your throw and muscle memory and ...

Re: Working the mean

Agree. I hate crowded tables and will move away to another table. If that doesn't work I go play blackjack. Been working on the Hi-Lo count for a while now. Did ok for me in Tunica. I find that I have to keep practicing at it, though and I did make one mistake on just the basic strategy which you mu...

Re: Working the mean

Come bets are contract bets. And it would be one come bet as the first roll is off my PL. So I'm sitting there with a come bet moved to a number and I seven out with no way to take it down losing $20 instead of $10. My two first rolls are never wasted the way I see it. I can see what my shot is doin...

Re: Working the mean

This is one that nags at me slightly. Just slightly. Because I do wait for two rolls before committing. If the first two rolls look good, I'm in on the third roll. If the first two rolls look whackadoodle and the table has been narrowing down towards sevens I will probably go a no 4 or 10 against my...

Re: Dirty Donts Stories

Somebody recommended using the dam as the back wall. I had that situation from SO and tossed over it. But using it as the back wall sounds good to me. If a dealer says anything about hitting the back wall you can say you did. Right? Or you can switch to the don't side. $500 no 10 and slam one down t...

Re: Your Go To, Money Making, BEST Betting Strategy

The thing is regarding pass line press moves..the shooter's percentage of making his/her point declines immediately for subsequent rolls. I don't remember the statistics, but the probablility decreases after the first pass. You might consider working with odds rather than progressing the basic PL. A...

Re: Your Go To, Money Making, BEST Betting Strategy

I don't buy Grafstein's qualified shooter business having to do with come out naturals unless the shooter is setting for that shot. IMO it is nonsense. I like the shooter to throw inside numbers, but that too is a chancey situation. Regress, take profit and "Take me down." As raider says. I too have...

Re: Your Go To, Money Making, BEST Betting Strategy

Welcome. Seen that type of dice setting behavior multiple times. I think it's the ritual of it..like when a shooter bangs the dice on the
table and then tosses. Your betting style is also used by RG except he does the come bet. Works well for him.

Re: Your Go To, Money Making, BEST Betting Strategy

$96 across two hits gets you $42. Down to $44 inside puts you slightly in the hole..I'm assuming you're shooting so the PL bet is $15? Whatever..Yeah. It's a good way to do it. I just don't like that big an outlay on a roll. I'll go $30 6 and 8. I think there is value too in starting small..like a $...

Re: Your Go To, Money Making, BEST Betting Strategy

Yeah.One hit and regress is my play too. The problem with the two hit regression is you may not hit that 2nd number right away. You may throw junk..2, 3, 12..and maybe a number you aren't on..say 4 or 10 if you are just playing inside. After I get my first hit and regress..the seven becomes a lot le...

your personal craps rules

This is probably an old topic, but I'm interested in your rules for play starting when you enter the casino and get to the table. Do you watch for bounce or what is happening on the layout regarding bets or in racks? Do you play randies based on some rules? How do you bet when you get the dice first...

Re: Where's the Dark Side Love? *** Part II ***

Seen too many random mega shooters on even the bouncing betty's kill it. It's bad variance yr. looking for, isn't it? The table really doesn't matter
that much does it? Just asking.
