Here's a way to stay on board AFTER locking up a profit.

Bet six and eight, \$30 each.

After one or two hits, make it look like \$22 inside.

Then either alternate same bet, press, or whatever you want: just keep in the game til seven out.

Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

Yes, you could do that and limit your initial risk by only having a 6 n 8. It is the same principal as I mentioned by taking a quick number, then using a portion of it to ride out the roll. However, the issue with that is you are limiting your chances of winning on the first few rolls by 39%... if the 4,5,9,10 come (14 combinations into 36 total outcomes =38.8%) , then you are losing out on those opportunities... and many times those numbers come before 6,8 ever do and seven out before you ever see the 6 or 8. Again, I understand your limited risk, but there is greater probability of hitting a number if you have all covered. I will take greater risk for greater probability.

Would you rather buy a stock that has a high probability of increasing 10% and risk a large amount, as opposed to risking a low amount on a stock that has a high probability of losing 90% ?

I understand your logic completely.... but you have to be in the right place at the right time to hit that huge roll. That is what everyone dreams of in craps... and that's why people stay on to long and usually lose. If I were to stay on every shooter waiting for that one long roll, I would go broke way before I probably even see a remotely good roll. I dont go for the homerun swing every time, I like to bat in runs by lots of singles. They add up... and at the end of the day, the money you will have lost by staying working every roll waiting for the huge roll will be far greater than what you may make on that one roll if you catch it. make sense?

Trust me... ive been there. Ive racked my head so many times in the past staying on shooters.... just rarely pays off. So many times ive said... f!#/, i should have gone off that roll. How many times have you said that? haha You have the control.

Now, if I want to go for that huge roll, I only do it when Im up already with a portion of my profit. If Im up 500, I will go 160 across and let it ride and power press for a while. If I lose it... so be it. Walk away and dont chase.

If 7 out comes right away... well then, know matter how I played it, I will have lost. Yes, I will have to make it up a few times around now. If it comes 2x in a row. I go home.

Warning for profanity. Next one will bring a suspension.
