Nope! The worst bet is the pass line after the point is established as a four or a ten.

On crapless, it's when the point is aces or twelve.


It is quite stupid to make a pass line bet after a 4,10,2 or 12 is the point, dont you think?.

Of course it's stupid. It has a high HE.

But then again, every bet (except odds) also has a HE. Some bets are stupider (or more stupid) than others.



Not relating to the field per se, but an interesting thing I just thought of regarding dumb-luck / luck...Guy walks up to the table, asks to get marked up for $540 across, $100 all the hardways [each]. He's hitting, pressing and pressing...asks for another marker for $1K on the 4 (point)....finally starts collecting, paying off his markers....then asks to be "marked up" for $1K in the field...of course it hits and he pays it off. Constantly asking to get "marked up" for certain bets and paying them off a roll or two later. He was just running circles around the floor person. 10 minutes later there's a 7 out and he leaves with a quick +$20K.

It's pretty funny when in the middle of a roll (ie: shooter got the dice about to throw) guy might say "mark me up for all the hardways hopping $100 each", a hardway hits the next roll, then he says like "give me $2700, pay off the marker with the other $400" [i don't remember exactly what he said or how that stuff works].
