One of the oldest shots in the book is to walk up to a $5 table with your hands in your pockets and call for "6 and 8 for six bills each". If the dealer books the bet you got yourself one hell of a deal, for if either number hits you pull 12 c-notes out of your pocket to cover the call and take the bets down, otherwise you pull $12 out of your other pocket and leave, taking your bets down if the roll was neutral. Alan Shank (aka goatcabin) reported that this shot was specifically mentioned in a dealers' manual he had. I'm with you; "two ways" means the player and the crew. Since there are two ways to hop the 5 the quoted call is ambiguous. As Basic Sevens notes it could mean $2 each way for the player, or $1 each way for both the player and the crew. Hence a good dealer would call "no bet" to get a clarification; a not-so-good dealer could become the victim of a shot-taker. At a $10 table at Foxwoods a player tossed a nickel to the stick and called for "a $5 four". The stick booked a $5 hard 4. rolled and the player wanted to be paid, pointing to the "4" in the Field when no payoff was forthcoming. I can't say for certain the player was not taking a shot, but I don't think he was. Best to learn the jargon of a game before playing it, Yours truly innocently got caught making an ambiguous bet at Riviera LV a few eons ago. Walked up to a table with a shooter coming out. Shooter established a point. Dice went out as I put my buyin on the table so I called, "$10 they don't." Stick and base dealer called, "No bet," as the dice rolled. I belatedly realized I should have called, "$10 they don't come."
