My "short term goal" when I start is to win enough to pay for my vacation. I usually take care of that with some poker luckily.
So I start with a buy in of about $300 and play conservative. So pass line, 2x odds and place the six and eight. When I roll I usually add a $1 yo.
This time I think that when I have a point of 5, adding the Field bet for one unit and two unit place bets with the 6 and 8.
If I get up about $100, I walk away. If I have a good run, pocket the $100 and play the hot table.
How does that sound?
Thanks cowboy. I have been practicing on wizard two ways in prep for my trip. One unit with two times odds on the pass. Two units place on 6 & 8. Each win there add to pass odds one unit til maxed. And when point is 5, add one unit field. I find that more often than not, I can be plus $100 before-$300. When I hot +$100. I pocket and reset. My other version has adding a field when the point is 5,6 or 8. Less successful there.
With discipline, I like this way.
