Arthurdent33, that special smirk is delicious. Taking down one's exposure is the best way to grow your rails. Doing so only one or two tosses before Red is doubly sweet.
Thanks for the wishes Sally. Actually, this thread is a little bit different but sorry if asking twice offended you. But if you will enjoy me asking a third time (perhaps I can change the order of the sentences to make it a bit different again), I would be happy to oblige.
I had my first chance to actually try this at the local "casino" on their bubble craps game.
$10 minimum game - and with the machines, they pay based on the actually payouts so it was easier to place the 5, 6 & 8 at $20 and a field bet of $10. With the first few sets of rolls, I ran out of time trying to get the 6 & 8 to $18 - the machine rolls every 30 seconds and my inexperience with using a machine for craps contributed to that.
After about 45 minutes of play, I was up $215 and cashed out with taking down my bet after two wins after the point was made. When I was up $100, I cleared my bets but placed a $10 bet on both the six and eight and let that play. I would have stayed longer but I had to meet up with some friends.
The guy next to me got creamed with the crazy way he was playing and kept on feeding $20s into the machine. Looking forward to returning and trying again. Hoping it wasn't beginners (for this "system") luck!!!
Been hooked for years, just trying to walk away a winner
Thanks for the input Romes, I do not take it personally at all.
I have been toying with it here on the play for fun game and have been in the positive way more than the negative and decided to try it with real money on a bubble craps machine. Not really a way to make friends with the crew at a live table with so many times of taking my bets off and the place closest to me is only slots and virtual craps, BJ and baccarat.
I just took the odds I found here of average number of rolls after a point is made. If the average number of rolls per decision is 3+, and I exit after 2, doesn't that make a little bit of sense?
And I reserve the right to be stubborn AND not take critique personally as long as it doesn't get personal!
Trying to get back to give it another go. And I will gladly accept beginners luck each time I try it.
And I would say try it for yourself here and see what you come up with.
