    I recently started playing craps and trying to have a consistent strategy. I have settled on playing the pass line with odds and placing 2 come bets with odds. When the come bet hits, place another come bet. If the point hits, place 2 more come bets. Any thoughts on this strategy.

    Good as most, better than a lot of strategies.

    But in my opinion, you also need a betting amount strategy to go along with that plan.

    When to progress the bets, when to regress......try and incorporate a version of the "D'Alembert" system with the betting strategy.

    And don't get too enthusiastic about the odds, they add volatility to the play, not always a good thing depending on your bankroll and loss limits.

    I have as always downplayed the Come bet . But in my last 2 30 roll hands I would have done nicely with that approach. So I may give it a try

    Thoughts? Yes I do. :) This is a very "consistent" strategy, that in the long run, will produce a consistent result. I call this strategy "TDs FOLLY", and never use it. There are however, others that swear by it. By the way, What's with all the numbers in your handle?Funman one hundred twenty three thousand, four hundred and seven. I think I just answered, that question. Welcome to the forum, hope you find it fun.:D

    Essentially a 3 point Molly...

    As good as any strategy out there. 3 numbers in action, low house edge....catch it at the right time and you'll do well. Even if things are going lousy, a come bet will offer some kickback that preserves "gun powder" when and if those dice kick in.

    What if your strategy doesn't work ?.........or do you keep doing it until you run out of money....saying..." it's gots to change."

    It's easy to go to war....but is there an exit strategy ?

    Yep, what he said. Especially this part,

    "When to progress the bets, when to regress......try and incorporate a version of the "D'Alembert" system with the betting strategy."

    you can try switching from right side to dark side. 3 point "don't" Molly...mid stream play.

    That presumes an idea one can see that the change that "happened" will continue to happen.

    One can guess. It can't hurt to switch. Also might hurt if the "little man" inside our brains got it wrong.

    Loss limits would be the only other suggestion for "exit strategy", IMO.

    when things are not going well....and one continues to bang the same drum?

    I think the only thing worse is "switching sides" and the table decided to switch too.

    When one does not play a regular game...he would not understand.

    No harm...you'll get there. Continue with the ATS or Fire bet. The casino luvs you;)

    Right now I go in with 2-300 as my bankroll. If I am down 100, I lay off all odds, unless the point is 6 or 8. If I lose my bankroll I am done for the day.

    Thanks for the information. I read up on the D’Alembert system and that is some Imwill,keep,in mind. I have only used this strategy twice, but it seems better then betting the 6 & 8 after point is established. This new strategy seems to provide more control. I start with no odds unless the 6 or 8 is the point. When I am up I add odds.

    Also, My bankroll right now is 2-300. My goal is to build it up to $1000 over time. I had it up to $700 before I discovered this strategy. I lost it playing crapless craps in St. Louis.

    At this point I don’t mess with the fire bet. The house edge seems way to high.

    But if one was a regular on the forum, he would understand. Keep on cloning, man, it's as close as you'll get to reproducing. :D

    So you play until you lose all your money. How do you feel when you lose all your money ? Do you think you have what it takes to quit after losing half your session stake... To exercise the discipline muscle will make it stronger.; this will serve you well as you continue to gamble over the years.

    When you are down you continue to make come bets and do not take odds, depending on the number. You might consider making place bets instead of come bets at this point....

    Perhaps it is, that this guy "exercises the discipline muscle" when he buys in. Why buy-in for $200 if you are only going to risk $100. This makes no sense. Makes no difference WHEN, you draw the line, more important to hold that line. Your buy-in should be no more than you are willing to risk, for that session. Your only kidding yourself if you say, I'll buy-in for $200, but risk no more than $100. We all know what the other $100 is for, to chase a loser, there is no other reason, get real! :)

    It's not the same......it's different.

    The greatest quality you can possesses as a gambler is discipline. Without it you have no chance. None. You can exercisr the body and you can exercise the mind. There is a difference to lose all your money and losing half your money. Not only the money, but psychologically.it can hurt alot....especially time after time. The dam is broke and then you hit the ATM.....discipline my man...discipline. Walk around the craps table and not play.....have a concrete floor beyond which you will not go ( half your buy-in )....

    This is my opinion...and it's all in my book.
