I liked that post, very diplomatic it seemed. But was still a challenge (did I get that wrong?). Go do it, have some fun, do 't play for big bucks, play for fun. Just 2FQuote: dicesitter
I still think your method of playing the dont is a good way.
Now having said that, i think we need to play sometime..... we each take the same amount of starting money
and as i throw you can lay against any point i attempt to make, i will do the same for you and we will see
who has the most money at the end.
that would be fun
The next best thing is just take money from the casino, that is not bad either.
I do not make any don't pass or don't come bets.Quote: eclectic
Mustangsally, is the above quote by dicesetter an accurate description of your preferred don't strategy? i.e. not laying odds when the established point is either a 4 or 10?
In the Ricochet, you do not "lay odds" on the come out number. You make a lay bet against the point. And for the other poster, there is nothing the least bit "rude" about laying against the point. I've been doing it for more than 30 years with never even a peep or glance. Now about the Don't Come bets, that's another story.Quote: eclectic
The richocet is simply waiting for the come out roll, laying odds on that number, then placing a DC. If the DC# travels remove the odds portion on the first bet, and have two numbers working while awaiting the 7.

Actually steadily in AC and LV. Only once in AC, at the forlorn Trump Marina a k a Trump's Castle, did it become really ugly. I would say that down on the Strip, most bettors don't fully realize what the lay and don't bets are. And those who do are sophisticated enough to appreciate that we're not really playing on the house's side. Off the strip, the prevailing reaction seems to be the quite typical courtesy of the ever friendly Nevadans. Especially if toking the dealers and cocktail waitresses. The Canadians, I have found, join Californians, Puerto Ricans and Panamanians in not fully understanding and definitely not appreciating don't betting.Quote: RS
You must play in Canada or somewhere like that -- more often than not, when I've seen a player lay the point, he'll get at least a few peeps or glares from other players.
