Was just re-reading the details of "Steve's Yellow Chip Play" and Heavy's Green chip version and had a question.
For those that don't remember the strategy here is the synopsis:
and then Heavy's green chip version:Steve's Yellow Chip Play is a straight lay strategy - no hedges, and he replaces once. The Palms collects the Vig on the win. Steve only lays the outside numbers: 4, 5, 9, and 10. Never the 6 or 8. He doesn't bet the DP or DC. A player gets the dice and tosses a come-out 6 for his point. His next throw is a 4, and Steve drops 2 yellows to the dealer and lays the 4. Next toss is an eight - Steve waits. Next toss is a nine - Steve drops a yellow and a purple and lays the nine. Next toss is a 10 - Steve drops 2 yellows and lays the 10. After 2 eights that I collect on, the shooter sevens out. Steve drops a black & 2 greens and collects 3 yellow chips, plus his three original lays. He racks & repeats.
So now my question: If you get the feeling the roller is getting "hot" how would you transition to the right side?Over the course of the weekend I played the dumbed down "green chip" version of Steve's Yellow Chip play - Heavy's Lay to win $20" play - so if the five or nine rolled I laid that number for $31 and the four or ten for for $41. I was never knocked off more than one number, but getting knocked off one number still left you in a bit of a lurch
My first thought is if he/she is throwing lots of 6 and 8's just leave the lays in place and place the 6 and 8 for $24 each and progress as you see fit.
What about the outside numbers you have lay bets on?
Do you take them down? (I can hear DarthNater cringing even as I type that statement!)
Do you hedge them with a Place bet and do not replace the Lay if it gets knocked off?
