"How to prevent lots of \$ from sitting on the table when the 7 comes?"

I switched from Passline/2 Come bets to a single larger Don't Pass. (all max odds)
ie: \$5pass/Come on 3/4/5x table using 3point Betty strategy = \$70 on table

\$10 Dont pass/\$60 odds = \$70 on table
that way when I hit my win goal, I can walk away.

but with 3point Betty, I have to wait till my points resolve.
and it sucks seeing #s keep hitting when you're waiting to leave the table -> no fun.

but I just thought of something:
Why not use my Don't Pass strategy for Pass?
ie: single larger pass bet

\$15passline/\$60odds = \$75 (if point=5)

Press as you win.
walk away when the last win meets your win goal

The best advice I can give is that 'hit and run' is best way to be a winner in the long run. Greed kills and pigs get slaughtered. If you are lucky enough to have made a profit on the tables, whether small or large, it is best to walk and start over another day. The casinos want players to put time in on the tables and stick around for a reason... over time, it is inevitable that you will lose.

Most people are not happy with a 20%, 50% even 100% gain on their money in the casinos. Many people cannot stop. Ask yourself this... how many times have you been in the casinos playing and were up at least 30% on you money? Think about if you you had left every time you were up , instead of sticking around and eventually losing that profit along with your bankroll. It adds up over time.

Be realistic and dont go for the home run every time. Especially in craps. If you are looking for that 30 minute roll every time, you will be highly disappointed over and over. Be happy if the shooter has a 5 minute roll and run. And even that is not a given.

The only time I stick around for a shot at the long roll is if I am 'free rolling' it. Meaning, I have already won money and then I take a portion of my winnings and let it ride....hoping for the best but expecting the worst. No fear and no great expectations.

I do hedge as well to protect box bets.

Good luck and stay smart!

Simple. If you're up \$2K, walk.

Ok math gurus; question...

Lets say we have the same type of scenario; I walk up with \$1500 and I am up 2k, and there is a lot of money still on the table. If I were to call my bets "off" every other roll, what does that do to my percentage of losing all of my bets after 20-30 some odd rolls?

1. Does the 2k include the money on the table?
2. What bets do you have on the table?
3. If you call your bets "off" every other roll, you will be very unpopular with the dealers.

No lets say I am up 2k (in my rail) and I have 540+ across plus hard ways. I'm sure they (dealers) won't like it but for the purpose of this equation they don't care lol. The shooter has rolled approx. 20-30 times, with an occasional seven in between points.
