Here's some good news for you guys: my numbers never hit.

Whenever I go to Red Rock for lunch I look at the Keno screen on the wall and I imagine I'm playing my ten numbers for their $3-million jackpot.

Never has more than 3 of my ten numbers ever hit on that screen of 80. Usually it's just one number. Sometimes two numbers.

Frankly it's hard enough rolling any number twice in craps. So perhaps the 3 number don't is the way to go?

That's not good news, Alan. Good news would be if you won the $3 Mil jackpot! Hey, I may not always agree with you, but I'm not rooting against you!Quote:AlanMendelsonHere's some good news for you guys: my numbers never hit.

FWIW, 22% of the time, you only need to roll one number to win a line/come bet!Quote:Frankly it's hard enough rolling any number twice in craps. So perhaps the 3 number don't is the way to go?

Thats the spirit. Just keeping telling yourself they are laughing with me, not at me.

Quote:Ace2Tuttigym: This is why we calculate standard deviation. For example, lets say you make 400 passline bets (about 13 hours of play). Your expectation is to lose 400 * 1.41% = 5.64 units and your standard deviation is 20 units. This means that about 68% of the time your result will be within 20 units of -5.64.

This is not hocus-pocus. If you played many 400 bet sessions (can be over multiple days) then you would see that about 68% of them fall into that range. You could even use a (god forbid) simulation to show this.

400 bets is a very small sample size. Most of us will play tens or even hundreds of thousands of hands in our gambling "careers". And at that volume you can be confident that your total loss will be pretty close to the expected edge %. Sure you will have some huge wins and some horrific losses along the way...and variance is what makes gambling fun...but in the long run it will all net out to the house edge, or close to it

The people who don't understand the basic numbers, thinking they can beat the house etc, are usually the ones that get in big trouble

link to original post

While your post may be correct, the basic flaw is the assumption that every player in every session wagers the same plays the same amounts every time without any deviation of plan or approach. I am pretty sure your play does not come close to the static plan associated with the "math" you espouse. You are inferring that the 400 bet sessions are identical and therefore the results would eventually mirror the "math" as in the computer simulations you so believe in. That just does not happen. It is not reality. In short, the "math" is an illusion put forth to justify the numbers which have yet to be proven or performed.

Again, let me emphasize that all of the math regarding the HA/HE such as the 1.41% PL is determined by doing, fictiously, (playing) the same thing for each and every roll of the dice and each and every hand played every time without deviation. The simple question: Is that how you or anybody you know play the game?

I just read that a US family has an average of 1.93 children. Sounds reasonable, but according to your logic that figure must be wrong since it's impossible to have 1.93 children. Averages are averages

Actually, I have met hundreds of people that are not "all there." So that number may be a bit high.

Quote:Ace2How many trials are needed in a simulation varies. Yes, it does sometimes take millions of trials (or more) before the answer converges to three significant digits, which is usually enough.

You can play do/don't with only one position at a craps table.

You don't need two spots to do that and it would be perfectly allowed. The Keefer Roulette System, which I analyzed, makes a lot of offsetting bets. No rule against it.

As the 3PD page states that we assume the player knows the rules of craps, I think the easiest and most accurate way to describe a 3PD is simply: "You make don't pass and don't come bets until you have three total bets in play. Back everything with max odds" Same for 3PM but use pass and come.

The 3PM (and 2PM and 4PM and 5PM and 6PM) are very basic. As long as you know what a passline and come bet are, there's really nothing to explain except what you're EV and SD are. Same goes for dolly

you kinda lost me there ... but if I were you I'd look at EV/SD ... as EV approaches one SD, it becomes foolish to keep betting.

If a gambler played for 12 hours with 3 point molly, we need to know how many bets that is I think. Your answer would be the same as if you waited till one was resolved before making another.... EV has to be the same.

So maybe someone knows the answer based on the rolls per hour. At a busy table that is expected to be about 100 rolls.

Here is how I would do it:

400 pass line decisions (at 3.38 rolls per decision) would take an average of this many rolls: (400)(3.38) ≈ 1352

1352 rolls would decide an average of this many 3PDs: 1352 / 8.525547 ≈ 159

The standard deviation of the win/loss over 159 3PDs, based on a unit bet is: (14.635488)(sqrt 159) ≈ 184

The standard deviation for 159 3PDs, based on $100 per bet, is: (184)(100) = $18,400

The average loss playing 159 3PDs at $100 per bet is: (100)(159)(0.083150) ≈ $1,319

I say “covered” and think that’s a common craps term when betting come. If I bet come I usually just keep coming until the bases are loaded.

Don't plan on that buy-in lasting long. I'd double it to $10K.

So I'm trying a bit of 3 Point Dolly on WinCraps. My latest shooter had $30 on the DP and 2 DC's with $180 odds on each, total bet of $630. I won $30 + $90 on the 4, $30 + $120 on the 5, $30 + $150 on the 8. Total win of $450. If this were a Bubble Craps machine starting with $1,000, I'd be down to $370 on the 1st 3 bets with odds, and back up to $1,450 on the win, $1,080 paid on the win. I don't remember if I should be laying or placing to lose if I wanted those extra 4X odds on the bubble craps, and how much less they'd pay.

From Wizard's site: https://wizardofodds.com/games/craps/basics/

As mentioned above, Place to Lose and Lay bets are exactly the same thing, but with different odds. Here is the better bet, according to the number bet on:

6 and 8: Place to Lose bet always better.

5 and 9: Place to Lose bet always better, unless commission on Lay is on win only.

4 and 10: Lay bet always better.

Place to Lose bets to lose are the opposite of Place bets. They win on a seven, and lose on the the number you're betting against. As far as I know, Place to Lose bets are found only in Australia, England, and some Internet casinos. The odds paid are as follows.

6 and 8: 4 to 5

5 and 9: 5 to 8

4 and 10: 5 to 11

So a $30 DP bet with $60 odds, and $120 on the Place to Lose except Lay on the 4/10.

The 6/8 would pay $96 + $50 odds + $30 DP/DC = $176 (-$4 from odds bets)

The 5/9 would pay $75 + $40 odds + $30 DP/DC = $145 (-$5 from odds bets)

Bubble craps is commission on win only. So the 5/9 lay bet would pay $76 + $40 odds + $30 DP/DC = $146 (-$4 from odds bets)

The 4/10 would pay $57 + $30 odds + $30 DP/DC = $117 (-$3 from odds bets)

So Place to Lose on the 6/8, and Lay the 5/9 & 4/10 on the Bubble Craps.

The craps table doesn't have Place to Lose and it isn't needed except on a table with less than 3X, 4X, 5X odds.

If I had $100 on the DP, the point was 6/8, with $200 odds and $400 on Place to Lose, the payout would be $700 bet + $100 + $166.67 odds + $320 P2L = $1286.67 which is just too much over $1200. If the point was 5/9 the payout would be $700 bet + $100 + $133.33 odds + $266.67 Lay - $13.33 vig = $1186.67 which is just enough below $1200 by just the vig.

I shouldn't be doing a 3 Point Dolly above $30 with 2X odds & 4X lay/P2L to keep under a $1200 payout on a 7-out. Just cash out and find a table to play at.

Playing some more WinCraps and noticing I'm losing like WinCraps wants me to playing the 3X,4X,5X odds 3 Point Molly. Losing up to 3 bets per shooter is no substitute for losing on 50 shooters in a row on the Do side. Losing over 315 units already. Guess I'll need to win 315 units on the 3 Point Dolly to catch up, but WinCraps will turn that into yet another 315 unit loss.

I'm going to drop this but I will point out that you are undoubtedly a veteran player ... all those, including me, know what it meansQuote:unJonI say “covered” and think that’s a common craps term when betting come. If I bet come I usually just keep coming until the bases are loaded.

I'm perhaps kind of an odd guy in that I remember going through a distressful period like approaching a Craps table and being intimidated by it all. Others, I notice, forget all about that and often even instead develop contempt for those 'not in the know' even though, sometimes just a short period earlier, they also knew next to nothing.

Present company excluded from such I'm sure, and I do mean that.

btw that's a good way to get "too much in action" for my taste. At just about any table minimum, wins or losses can get into the $thousands fairly quickly. Since we are talking about 3 point mollies and dollies, I'll praise again that it is a great way to limit how much you have in action which, on the dark side, is not quite as intuitiveQuote:unJonI say “covered” and think that’s a common craps term when betting come.

I agree, so having posted that what is the actual message and the end game regarding all the "math"? Virtually, all the "math" or conversations regarding the HE/HA become or are irrelevant for actual play. Craps players such as yourself or Mr. W or Mr. Mendelson play with their particular strategy or "system." Their success or failure at any given session is totally dependent on the table play at that time. There is no "long term" at that moment. Winning sessions and losing sessions have nothing to do with STD's, ooops. SD's (standard deviations), and the ever present HA/HE can go by the boards depending on which side one is playing (right or dark) when the table is hot or cold. A player who can navigate a choppy table is really quite rare and is disciplined and patient so as not to go off the rails and either leave the session or wait for some eventual change. Discussing the "math" is a total distraction IMO simply because it fails to speak to the reality of actual play. Your post above basically proves that statement.

PS there is no such thing as a hot, cold or choppy table...except in the past tense. Regardless of the past, you have a 241/495 chance of winning your next passline bet. It's that simple

It's your cumulative return over decades that actually matters and you will realize something fairly close to the long-term average rate of return if you stay invested in quality stocks long enough

Ace2, Your assumption of my play is pretty right on. I play in the moment because for me, there is no "long term." I got out of the market in 2007 right before the "crash." I had an old annuity I had purchased during the Carter years when the interest rates were sky high. That financial instrument paid a guaranteed rate of 4.5% and still does today. I took all those stock assets (cash) and put them in the annuity. It took 11 plus years for the market to recover. In the meantime and to this date that investment is producing six figures a year tax deferred. There is no way that those investments I sold off in '07 would be at the level I now have or the return, In Sept of 2020, I took part of my IRA and purchased thousands of share of one stock, XOM (Exon-Mobil) at $45/ share. Earlier this month I sold them all at $91+/share. I was living in the moment then, and I am living in the moment now. That is my "big picture." I believe that you might agree that my "average rate of return" far surpassed the "long term average rate of return."

You are probably correct about the table conditions described above, however, I personally believe sessions have trends which can be ridden or taken advantage. As far as the PL bet, I rarely play it. For me, it is a real loser especially after the point is established. That 244/495 figure flips dramatically after the point is established.

11 years?!! The S&P was setting new highs within 5 years of the 2007 crash.Quote:tuttigymI got out of the market in 2007 right before the "crash." I had an old annuity I had purchased during the Carter years when the interest rates were sky high. It took 11 plus years for the market to recover.

That 244/495 figure flips dramatically after the point is established. I am pretty sure you recognize that too, and so does Mr. W.

It's true that your probability of winning changes substantially once a point is established. However, you cannot bet on just part of the passline bet...you must bet on all of it. When you find a casino that allows you to turn off passline bets after a point is established (or turn off don't pass bets during come out rolls) please let me know. That would give the player over a 20% advantage on the house. You can stick with your place/buy bets and lose about ten times what you'd lose with line bets + odds

I am not sure who the "turnip" is to whom you are referring. In any event, this debate has been polite and might be enlightening to some. I am not personally "annoyed," and I would hope Mr.Ace2 is not either. I do not believe we are "shouting" at each other; it is a respectful conversation with differing points of view.

Yes it did, but I was not going to take that gamble at the time and my alternative plan worked out quite well with a guarantee return that was better than anything out there at the time and tax deferred (did interest rates ever recover?), plus my portfolio was reduced in value by 70+% and did not fully recover for quite some time.

You have validated my position again, so thank you for that.

Quote:Ace2However, you cannot bet on just part of the passline bet...you must bet on all of it.

As I stated, for me, the PL including odds, is a terrible bet especially since you have stated, indirectly, a 20% HA.

It is not necessary for my play, so don't hold your breath.

At any time you can turn off of take down any and all don't bets.

If you dont want to bet pass or dont pass during come out rolls you dont have to.

After a point is established you can place the point or lay the point.

These are basic rules.

Does the 0.27% house edge change, if the table limits odds to a different number? i.e. if odds are limited to 2x?

Given the lower odds bets, the units lost / units won figures would change.. I imagine raising that edge..?

So if I lost 105 units at a 3X, 4X, 5X table, it would have been 45 units lost at a 2X odds table.

1/2.3333333 x 105 = 45.

Yes, the less odds you can lay, the higher the house edge.

The house edge is 0.455% with double odds and 0.431% with "full double" odds.
