Re: What's your favorite money management move?

Any regression to lock up a profit is a great move, Dan. I've probably made more money having my bets "off" late in a hand than I have any other way. LOL. When every one of those "energy draining events" occur and I have more than $1K on the table I get gun shy. I still remember...

Re: Is there really such a thing as a "lucky streak?"

Are winning streaks real? If so, how and why does this benefit gamblers? Recently Irish has argued that there's no such thing as an exploitable streak in gambling. A recent scientific article sent to me by a forum member seems to suggest the opposite. What are your thoughts? Is there such a thing a...

Re: What's your favorite money management move?

Doing a quick check of my bets on the layout I saw that I had $495 in action at that moment. Then my mind showed me what it would look like to watch the dealer sweep it all away. The purple chip I wanted so badly was lying right there on the table. I had it all ready! I tossed the dealer a red and ...

Re: How to Color Up at a Craps Game

If you play regularly at the same casino and they figure out you're a ratholer, they will assume you ratholed the missing chips and adjust your cashout amount in the computer to that effect whether you actually had the chips or not.

Re: If you shoot from the don’ts.....

If it's a table for one I sometimes make DP bets on the flat only. The majority of the time I just do a dealer hand in at color up time if playing the dark side.

Re: What's your favorite money management move?

The problem is when you tell the dealer you are betting 204 across betting 25, 35 and 42 respectively... They get brain locked at 204. Even worse if you have a pass line bet. Dealers are used to adding multiples and visualizing in, say, columns. This bet asks them to add in rows and non multiples.....

Re: Data tracking methods at the Casino....

. Small samples don't matter. Even larger samples carry only so much significance. Subsets like 720 rolls or maybe 1440 will give you some insight, but only a compendium of the data will really be meaningful. That's the most important thing I've learned from tracking is don't get into the dog chasi...

Re: Mini Baccarat Tourneyment's

Northwood in Iowa had a month long "hot shooter" craps tournament last year where you got an entry into the drawing if you had a roll that was 20 or longer. We stopped there on a trip to Minneapolis and I picked up a couple entry tickets. Since they are too far away from home, I didn't bot...

Re: WOTCO or not?

The problem becomes no GWAG. You are such a favorite on the comeout roll to make money, yet the average punter is more concerned about having the least money on the line, to win. Then they make one of the worst bets ever, the world. Then the casino offers the short pay ats, insuring punters avoid t...

Re: Baccarat Tie Bet

A shoe heavy in 10's would be more likely to have a 0/0 tie but there's no way for it to ever get high enough to offset the HA. Since Asians feel the number 4 is bad luck and the numbers 3 and 7 if I remember correctly are good luck, perhaps the result of the previous hand is what they go on? I alwa...

Re: $100 comp chip

Nice: The promo chips here are pay and take if they win. which effectively makes a $100 promo chip a $50 chip. Does it only pay even money no matter what you put it on? That's the way the ones locally work. I wouldn't like the field for that reason. Personally, I'd put it on the pass line and try to...

Re: A Negative Progression Baccarat Study/Strategy

If it wasn’t for the 5% tax on Banker we would all be rich with the D’Alembert! Any way to factor that into the progression? Play the no commission EZ bach and pray for no 3 card banker 7's that are a winner in normal baccarat. Those are a push and are in exchange for no commission on banker wins.

There have been folks who think there are ways to exploit worn dice, dice position, improper launching, certain dice bets. Not to mention proper payouts.
If anyone wants to talk about some of those points in detail I'd prefer to take it to a thread that members only can see.

Re: 7 Things I Wish They'd Told Me BEFORE I Discovered Craps

It is amazing how often interrupting your own roll, with a two way hard way, results in a seven. No good deed goes unpunished. One of the times I'll always remember. I was playing with a friend at Lakeside in Osceola. He has a good toss, way better than mine but big bets make him nervous. if anyone...
