A Place Bet is your best opportunity if you understand table events because your money can be moved, shut off or taken down ...
Place Bets win more money than a Pass Line w/Odds wager if you understand the difference ???
Point #5 or #9 Example: $5 Pass Line and $10 odds (wins $20) VERSUS $15 Place Bet (wins $21) and it's not a contract wager !!!
If you fail to grasp difference, "Shame on You!"
Good gamblers don't play to get lucky, understand and are willing to switch sides when necessary ...
Too many gamblers learn from non-certified persons: family member, friend or stranger ...
Unfortunately Newbies learn "less than intelligent" myths (decisions about dice flying off the table, new stick person, etc.) ...
Casino executives understand human greed; therefore, they provide sucker bets (Fire Bet, All or Nothing) to deplete your bankroll ...
A Fire Bet or All or Nothing is an unreliable happening -- the money you lose is akin to losing the farm ???

Two questions for you.

1. Are you a certified person?

2. How can I become one of these certified persons?

Now, I don't mind somebody advocating Place bets, but ... Touting how much you win one way versus another way is almost a sure sign of a Canard.

Unfortunately this sort of instinctive way of doing the math gives erroneous results most of the time. The simplest, quickest way of deconstructing the error is to look at the undefeatable EV of the bets.

EV of $10 line bet plus any amount of free odds: -14 cents

EV of $15 place bet: -60 cents for the example given
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

You have to take a test. "How many edges does a single die have?"- is one of the questions.

On the Master's test you must prove you know how to chart a table.

I know I'm probably kicking a dead bucket of tofu here, but...

98steps bailed because, he said, his system could win over "a lifetime" but not over the old test rules of 1 billion rounds. Well, years ago I overhauled the rules of the Betting System Challenge and now each test runs for only 200,000 rounds. (You win the challenge by winning 11 out of 20 of these tests.) Here are the updated rules. So, is that enough to entice 98steps to give it another shot?

I PM'd 98steps to let him know, but of course, I gave him the same advice I gave last time, which is that he should have his system programmed and tested first to prove to himself that it doesn't work before he wagers money that it does.

If we could somehow hunt down and sterilize all people who believe in the irrational, then we could possibly improve the collective human intellect.

That is taking it bit far, don't you think? Maybe it would sound better in the original German.
