Sometimes when you think you know its coming next roll, why not call a hop bet? It is amazing when it happens just as called, and makes you look like you know what you're doing. I don't do it often enough to remember more than a couple of hopped winners. Recently, a pretty sharp player from another table came in next to me during a good roll. He started placing pretty big bets right away. Shooter and 5 or 6 players already had four numbers on their fire bets. As I recall, only the 5 and 10 were left to be made. The new player had the hard 10 covered, and before the come out, he hopped the 6:4, 4:1 and 3:2 for $10 each. Five came out, and he advised the table that he knew it would be one of the needed points. Unfort, the 5 was never made, but the hopper did pretty well with a long roll with nearly all #'s covered. Mr. aggressive here was sitting only on the pass, and with 4 winners in a row, had a decent sized bet out when the seven-out came.
