Part 3 in my craps series is ready to sneak preview. Is it just me, or is hotlinking videos not working any longer?

Either way, here is a link.

As always, I welcome questions, comments, and especially corrections. Keep in mind I am not going to reshoot anything but can edit stuff out or make corrections with call-out boxes.

The question for the survey is what do you think?

finally watched it

If the viewer is a newbie has to be good to see this ... best to know the sucker bets for what they are before ever walking into a casino. My observation has been that those who learn from other players and dealers get hooked on those bets, and can't give them up.

If I could tweak it, I'd mention more about the effect that one roll bets have. That is one mollifying effect for hardway bets that isn't mentioned. Perhaps one of those boxes can be added?

Can you expand on that? I'm not sure I understand the suggestion. For the benefit of others, mollify means to soften or reduce.

you mentioned 'call-out boxes' ... I think I know what you mean, and you could use one for hardways, pointing out that at least they are 'not one roll bets'

I'm pretty sure I said that verbally in the Hard Ways portion.

well, you might wind up telling me "oh yes I did at X:XX" but I don't find any real overt mention of the 'one roll' factor until the discussion of the fire bet

I'll grant you that you don't want to seem to get the hardways bets off the hook - they are still sucker bets. Yet the facts can speak for themselves too.
