Well P, I would say I play mostly by the math.

If I'm on the don't, I will always lay odds on the 6 and 8. I don't play max odds, because it doesn't fit in my budget. The casinos near me that I frequent are 20x and 100x odds.

I don't always play the don't. Usually I go with the intention of playing the right side but will switch over if I deem the table "cold". I know, I know, the past doesn't mean anything, but that's what I do. I will also switch back and forth at times depending on how I feel a shooter is going to throw if the table is choppy, which it often is. I tend to "buck the trend" when it is like this. Say if 2 shooters make a point I will get on the don't for a few shooters and vice versa.




Zowies, 20x & 100x, I wouldn't be on that action either. I think when they do that it's some kind of novelty advertisement. It takes a lot of kahones to wager that way for sure, or a lot of crazy.

Yeah, I thought you were a fluid player. Sorry man, I had to gig you on it. I couldn't help it.

We do have circular discussions here for sure. When TheWolf posed the proposition for consideration, I liked it. It's not the way I would play every time but I will consider it and have another tool in my arsenal. That tactic isn't etched in stone [petroglyph].

As good a player as you are, I do believe you will think about that as well.

Also, experienced players often do think the past does mean something. How many times have we seen the dice go around the table and some shooter's repeat their same results? Plenty. I gotta go with my gut. Hunches, intuition.

As far as betting that way, I try to not get caught out on the passline very often, but I do believe I'll get the chance to utilize the process. Like you mentioned on a cold or choppy table and I haven't made a wager for a few shooter's and the stink eye is upon me.

They would if they could but they can't so they don't.



Sorry to say MrV but by simply setting the dice to show 6-1, 5-2, 4-3 (Seven on all sides) makes it very easy to roll 7, Just the other day I've rolled 5 in a row during come out.

I also believe that if you're gonna roll just for the seven or dark side betting, at least let the table know so they don't waste their money placing numbers.

Now I'm very interested in the "Yo Set"

I see quite a few people making the 5,6,8, field bet. I personally think playing 32 across with parlay/pressing the horn is better especially when "Yo" gets rolled.
