The last time I was in Vegas, while staying at the GN, I took the deuce to Paris for a little while. There was a man/woman (probably husband and wife) making off setting pass line and don't pass line bets with odds to whore comps. I couldn't care less and nobody in the pit seemed to notice but the husband didn't hedge the don't pass on the come out roll when someone hit a streak of 3 or 4 12's over a 6 roll span- at $300 a pop for them.

I just kept place betting my 6 & 8. What did I care?



Should they hedge it? The, "12,' has a worse House Edge than the Line Bets, (by a lot) so maybe they had some idea as to the comp value and determined that the value would not be in excess of the House Edge if they were to make the bet on the 12. I understand that you can control your maximum loss on a hand that way, just playing Devil's Advocate. The House Edge still works against them whether they are hedging or not. Thus, speaking in terms of expectation, they expect to lose less money not hedging the 12.
Vultures can't be choosers.

So many to talk of... but last week there was a guy who just kept digging into his pocket pulling out 200 at a time and hopped numbers. He just kept going back an forth with different numbers on different rolls. 1st roll... hop the 9s, next roll hop the 5s, etc..never staying with one number, just jumping all over the place. One of the stupidest plays Ive ever seen on a craps game. Needless to say, he didn't hit any of them after blowing 1000 quickly. Nevertheless, if he would have at least stayed with just one number repeatedly... he would have hit it a couple of times (like the 9) but he was so erratic and tilting that he was going all over the place.

Other than the fact he was playing hop bets, or craps at all for that matter. How is this the "WORST PLAYS YOU'VE EVER WITNESSED"? You are suggesting his method "going all over the place" is somehow an inferior method. You are suggesting he should have stayed with one number as if it/he was due.

Can I nominate your post as one of the worst posts about the worst plays you've witnessed?

Your post didn't feel right, it's as if it was missing something.

Oh ya, you didn't tell us how much money you made that night.

I donít see that as a horrible play at all.

While it might not be all that bad on a normal table, it was made worse because the guy could have cleaned up just by shadowing WMW's bets.

Not as bad as some of these, but when playing UTH, people not going 4X on big hands (two paint cards all the way up to pocket kings!) because "they lost the last time they played it" or something similar.

People that go 3X in general for UTH as well.

I dealt blackjack to a guy years ago, when most of you were in diapers. He doubled down on his blackjack against my (dealer) 10. He got some crap card like a 4 or 5. He ended up winning.

hmmm.... back at it, huh Ax. Round 3!

Oh ya, it was in the 300-500 range. The usual. Something you aren't equipped to do nor accustomed to. But hopefully you took my advice and loaded on the Eagles and over. It would have been a shame to go against me as you indicated you might.

I once bought stock in Enron. And NTEK now that I think about it. Far worse than doubling a hard 19 against a 5.......
