I am happy if I walk away with more than I put in. I am really happy if I am up enough to make one last bet that's bigger than my normal bet but less than my total profit and win it.

In all seriousness, it is indeed difficult to come up with what you want which is a TARGET number.
If it turns out to be a very choppy table and you walk away up twenty dollars a dealer may say to you "congratulations" ...and he may actually mean it.

If there were a few hot rolls and you were asleep... you can walk away in the plus column but not have done well at all.

On average, for a negative expectation game anything at or a bit over 100 percent gain should make you ecstatic, if your bets were basic strategy.

If your bets were Center Bets a 200 percent return is about minimum for any joy, since the risk was so high.

bankroll




To any serious craps player that wants to play with an advantage, bank roll is
everything.

Bank roll dictates your starting position in terms of your bets, it dictates any
loss limit you may use. For many it is the only buffer there is between losing
some or losing it all.

Now bank roll is not the same thing as buy in, and buy in does not dictate
what you will win. However bank roll or lack of one can help determine what
kind of player you are.

We all see a number of players that buy in for $500 and place $25 pass line
bet with triple odds, $60 6 & 8 and $25 hardway bets. we see them come
and go like a yo yo. Play and off to the ATM. We also see the guys that
buy in for a couple of thousand and start off with $100 pass line bet and
triple odds and $120 on 6 & 8 $100 on 5 & 9 and maybe even buy a 4.
Ten minutes later they just sign another marker.

A good player with a gambling account of $10,000 understands even if you
are the best, there are still ups and downs and his starting bet is only 1%
of the $10,000, or the $8000 or what ever amount you have been able to
acquire.

It would be reasonable to expect wins on a good day of 4 times your
starting bet, and if that is $100 then $400 is reasonable. If you limit your
loss to 1.5-2% of your bank roll, you will be playing craps for a long
time, and the ATM and markers wont be a part of your play.

In the end either we control our play or the table gets everything we
can find to spend that day.

hah hah! Just got back from casino a couple hours ago. placed a $5.00 chip on fire bet. 15 minutes later hedged the 5th point for $600 and lost it, but that's OK the shooter made the 5th point. Turned my $605 bank roll into $1250 giving me $645 profit for just under 20 minutes. Just got there at the right time. that's what craps is all about.

Don't sell yourself short! It was all skill! You made the fire bet and nothing else! The way you thought that out? That was all skill. :)
