I use to put all my chips in my backpack and take it home with me, come back the next day and sit down with the same chips and just turned it into the same game, but a long break.

What poker game allowed you to do that?

When you leave a $200 game you are limited to a $200 buyin when you return.

Plus those numbers provide the largest payouts when a 7 does roll so it is essential for me to play them.

Is it really essential when you're betting six to win 5?
I wouldn't call that the largest payouts.

Larger than 6:4 or 6:3 he gets on the other numbers.

With 4 and 10 you have fewer ways to lose.

I guess I look at betting differently.

Same way to look at it. True odds are true odds.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I'm not familiar with limit. What is the buyin? Is it capped or is it unlimited what you bring to the table?

Seriously? You dont known the conventional limit hold em? Minimum buy in is usually 10X the minimum bet, some places more with no cap. But you cant go broke in one hand like No Limit. Has a structured round of betting based on the table limits. $20~$40 Hold em would require a minimum of $200, starting with 10-20 blinds and the betting rounds would be $20, $20 pre and flop with raises in increments of $20 each and $40 for the turn and river, with a max raise of 4x or 5x per round depending on the room. Great game with $5 chips! Lots of chips on the table. Same goes for $40-80 Hold em with $10 chips or even $4-8 with $1 chips. Most I have won in a $40-80 game back in the Mirage, prior to Bellagio Poker Room opening was $10k. I was running good as the poker world calls it.

Sorry Vegasrider, but I missed the lessons on limit poker when I was rewriting the books on counting the phantom unemployed for the Labor Dept.

I certainly hope not. I offered Ace 50% of my profit when he's the shooter. He only needs to make a passline bet.

I think that's a darn good AP move for a shooter who says his shortest roll had 28 throws. If only 20 throws are non horn numbers, and we're at a $15 table, the gross on 20 throws could be:

20 X $21 = $420

The net could be $420 - $96 = $324

. I arrive to Vegas next week for a few days so you should come to my table...in all my years of shooting, the shortest roll I ever had was 28.



Whoa, Nelly!

Gotta put hip boots on, the manure is getting really deep and odoriferous.
