Going to ac for my bachelor party. Want to spend time at a table. So whats considered a "good" bet. Thanks GWAE.



Pass/Don 't Pass with full odds, then Come/Don't Come with full odds give you the lowest house edge (and expected deletion of your bankroll). How many come/don't come bets you want to make is up to you.

The field bet when something pays 3:1 is up against what some would find a reasonable HE. Still a little steep if you ask me [and as for the Santa Anna, didn't someone find out they quit their deal on the field?]

Be aware that the bet instantly resolves each roll. That can clean you out.

Also, the variance is low*, that's not good either in my book.

Yes, Sally, posters should remember what they posted before, when making a new post. It can be embarrassing!

I already clarified. My first 2 times were at a video machine with no dice. Never at a real table.

Its ok Everyone posts something embarrassing read this Rich.

Just so I understand...sorry I am a newb

What you are saying is lay a pass bet OR a dont pass bet with odds behind it....then once a point is established play dont come?

can you explain

thanks

It's a good idea to know some Craps Etiquette before you play the game.

For example, you could wait for the shooter to seven out before you buy in.

You wouldn't want to be the guy who interrupted a hot roll.

I'm always surprised when the people who write these things leave something out, like

*pick up and throw the dice with one hand, never cupping them with both hands
*to throw the dice, you must first make a line bet
*there is a place below the rail for your smokes and your drink
The Dice, the cards, they not only have no sense of justice but are actually endowed with a sense of cruel irony. This devolves from the 'nature of random'. Ironically so, don't you see.

The Pass (or Don't Pass, if you want to play the "dark side") will be the "best" bet in that it has the lowest edge. Adding odds behind the Pass bet will lower the effective edge of your combined (Pass + odds) bet since the odds bet has no edge. If you want more action after the point is established, but want to keep playing bets with the best edge, add a Come (or Don't Come, if you are playing dark side) bet and then add an odds bet to lower the effective edge.

If you haven't yet, check out the Wizard's craps guide here.

What Joeman said above. You can't put odds behind your pass/don't pass or come/don't come bets until a point is made, so you have to wait one step. (Some P/DP and C/DC rolls are resolved - you win or lose - before you can put down your odds bets.)

I also recommend the Wizard's video tutorials, which are helpful.
