While you are correct it never works out this way. I have been teaching people to play for years. 90% get bored after 10 minutes and walk away. Explain the math and they get even more bored. They get excited at their number hitting. They like when you tell them you know what the opposite side of the dice add up to. The women like seeing the male dealers handle cheques flawlessly. The men like banter with the dealers.


What you have written here is very correct especially the "math" part, that is, if your "math" explanations mirror "establishment" guideposts.

The ones who will stand and bet pass/don't are the ones who love a grind. Who will buddy up and run a doey/donty to grind out free drinks and hope for comps that never come because they are just making line bets. And anyone takes offense to that I am one of you so don't.


I have run the doey/don't but not for drinks or comps, but, for me, allows more options. The casinos I frequent are very generous with their comps; I drink O'Doul's; and I play modestly. BTW other player reactions to the d/d is quite positive, and I teach the dealers to knock on the table rather than taking the chips and replacing them except for the 12 at CO.

While there is consensus of negative expectations here, my approach is always just the opposite.

This is a FICTICIOUS conversation of Mr. TomG explaining a game to a youngster:

TG: This game gives NO advantage to your opponent.

Yngstr: Wow great. That means I can win the game and not worry that my opponent will take unfair advantage over my efforts.

TG: Well not exactly, during most of the play time, because of the rules, your opponent will win almost 3 out of four games.

Ygstr: Huh? What???????

Your misquoting is just so weird and out of place that it sounds like there must be some marbles lost.

For anyone who is completely clueless about house advantages or probability of winning, all the information I said can also be found right here: https://wizardofodds.com/games/craps/basics/
