    Was watching a " Craps Hawaii" vid and watched his inside betting $130- with 2 hits and down with a regression on first hit. On the last hand he did a press on the 6&8 then came down after third hit. Ended up with a $50-60 profit with 2 PSO' s!
    Called Staying Alive. Some of the " heroes" here better take heed.

    Correct: Every roll of the dice is a winner if you bet it correctly.

    In casinos with multiple tables, there is such a thing as a dead table that everyone abandoned because they misdiagnosed it as cold. That's the one I take every time hoping to get a few hands in before the pigeons on the other tables notice and come flocking in.

    The problem always is ego. The money playing dark is not quite as green.

    Bestest way to stay alive on cold tables is to wear fur coat.

    I say, drink lots of alcohol, it's tasty, and "good for you", that's why casinos will give it to you "free". They're always looking out, for our best interests, aren't they. :)

    As described in the LIDs best selling book "The Game of Craps," there are many personages who believe strongly in power of hot and cold tables in predicting future results and they are commonly referred to in crap circles as innumerates.

    The influence of tables on dices is known as TI or table influence in craps lingo. Many more crap personages believe in TI than DI and similarly many DIs believe in TI. This large majority of craps personages are commonly referred to as losers by casino personnels.

    Time to throw a few crumbs to the " heroes" Across betting is typically a loser or a break even event.You got to get your bets paid for earlier.Playing 4&10 accomplish this.Also I will give you two other plays

    $30 6&8 $15 field.on first roll. Six or eight hit drop to $18 6&8. Got to protect against the 7.Field hits place either 5&9 or 4& 10 $15 each. Start pressing after bets paid for.
    $66 inside first hit Plus $21 drop 5&9 and you are at a $3 risk. Next bet same. Then drop $3 go ton$42. Lot of options.

    Start playing smart.I may lose at times but I never take a big hit. Time for some of you heroes to get the bright lights out of your eyes and play a smarter game.

    I’ve seen across the board crush it.

    I’ve also seen it get crushed.

    It tends to be a feast or famine play rather than a break even type play. Catch a roll at the right time, a little parlay....it can be a gold play.

    Catch a few hands at the wrong time....the money evaporates fast.

    I would not call putting $130 across at risk a good way to stay alive.

    With approx $20 per number working, you are only going to win $21-$40 with a hit.

    To me, putting $130 at risk to win $40 is assinine. If you are going to risk $130, put it all on one number, better yet, go out on a Come bet with 10 flat/100 odds, and hold onto the other $20.

    "Playing smart" would involve betting across ONLY if your initial winnings have taken you there.

    Personally, I think a balance is a good plan. Not too much and not too little. Try and cover half of the box numbers. I’d rather do it with come bets but place/buy can work as well or a mix.

    I think it was OAP who used wording of “enough action but not too much”.

    in the end these decisions come down to player preference, risk, etc.....IOW’s a personal decision and not one someone can make for you.

    I certainly do understand the idea of less risk....at least until you have covered bankroll. I also understand the idea of simply grinding out smaller wins.

    So many options. Great game.

    You donot understand the play.In two hits you have $30 at risk. You regress on the first 2 hits.Its a decent play.

    Yeah, you're right. He doesn't understand "The Play" but he is spot on balls accurate that "The Play" wins much less than what is at stake.
