However, the best way to play, imho, is to hit n run.

Given that belief, why do you often plan "to stay on a table for a long time?"

My question is still valid, and points out the inherent inconsistency in your post.

If the best way to play is hit and run, why would you ever play otherwise?

If you're with friends one would think the friendly thing to do would be to persuade them to also play hit and run instead of hanging out there for many hours at a time playing incorrectly.

I have been playing p/l and remaining inside numbers (or across if point is 4/10)
pl bet and odds I see as one bet and place bets are a separate wager as a group. if point is 5,6,8,9 I have 16-17 inside and 5 p/l ad \$10 odds. no relation on each other as to how I play the others. Now I will say if the table is cold I usually drop the pass line bet and odds to limit my exposure to 22 per roll

I press after the 3rd hit when the point is inside and press the 5th hit when the point is a 4 or 10.

the one variation of this is when I am across (because a point is 4 or 10) and I hit the non point number before the normal press progression I follow I drop a dollar and go to \$10 or 15 depending on where I stand overall

What bearing has horse hydration upon the matter at hand?

I point out some BS and you channel your inner Mr. Ed?

When you play hit and run it fools the house edge. Imagine walking up to someone from behind and tapping them on the left shoulder while you quickly move to the right. It fools them, but only very quickly. Same idea with craps. The house edge can be made to look silly and be fooled by quick movements in and out of a game.
