If it's a pass line bet or odds, yeah, you can fix it. Just wait for the stickman to bring in the dice, and be obvious about fixing them.
Then again, it may be better to let the dealer handle it if it's a winning bet.
If it's something like a field bet being moved, point it out to the dealer.
Well, for clarity sake, if it was a field bet that was knocked off by a throw, that bet is now resolved. It either lost or won. Either way, you do not want to be touching those chips. If you won, and have not yet been paid, you will call that to the dealer and boxman's attention. Putting your hands on the chips is a good way to get into a Past Posting argument. If the bet lost, it is up to the dealer to pull the bet away. You certainly don't want to be putting your hands on a bet that has lost, regardless of how good your intentions may have been.
The passline could go either way. I prefer to allow the dealers to clean up my stacks. That way there are no questions.
Yeah, its their layout and it is much more preferable to annoy them with some request than to have them think something improper is going on. If you are in doubt, a palm turned up to the camera as you reach out to adjust a stack of chips is always sensible.Quote: RaleighCraps

I've occasionally reached for my buyin when its still in the come area but often dealers seem to hesitate.
I've mentioned before about a stickman who called out that I should not be betting against a pregnant woman when he saw I had put money on the DontPass as the dice came around to a new shooter. I assumed he was joking so I winked at the young lady who was sitting box and slid my bet from DontPass to PassLine. (As if the dice somehow are going to "know" they've been rolled by a young woman who is noticeably pregnant or that my DontPass bet is a bet against the shooter rather than against the Casino). I simply went along with the stickman's gag and I probably should have thanked him because that shooter happens to have made her point. She was young, she was attractive and she was noticeably pregnant but more likely than not, the Stickman was simply bored working the day shift on a very uncrowded table and wanted some entertainment.
Whatever you choose to do, its YOUR money and YOUR decision. The crew's superstitions or the other player's superstitions should not enter into your decision-making thought processes. If, as the dice come to me, the stick calls out From The Don't, Hoping They Won't and someone walks away from the table, that is unfortunate. Particularly unfortunate for that player who walked away if I immediately roll a Seven!
