If you want advice on how to influence the roll then I’d suggest you 86 the GTC video and invest a few bucks in a toss tune-up with Dice Coach. You’ll learn more from Beau Parker in a half-hour than you’ll learn watching the Frank and Dom show for a week.
If you want advice on how to bet then you need to provide a LOT more information. How much bankroll are you taking with you for this three day stay? How many sessions to you plan to play per day? From there we can figure out how many sessions you’ll play for the week then make a sensible allocation of funds. Nine sessions? You need ten envelopes. Divide your bankroll into nine equal parts and put one portion in each of the nine envelopes. Label envelope #10 “Take Home.” Set yourself a win goal and a loss limit. If you lose 50% of your buy in - end that session and put the remaining $$ in envelope #10. If you get up 50% lock up your buy in and play with the winnings. If the table turns against you and you lose 50% of your winnings then color up and stick the remainder of the win plus the original buy in amount in envelope #10. If you’ll play this way you are guaranteed to get home with at least 50% of your initial bankroll - and probably more.
Plan your play and play your plan. If you plan to play the right side then find a table where players are making passes and tossing numbers. That means walking around and watching a lot. Since you’re a newbie this is a good thing. Observe what the other players are doing and you soon learn (by observing their chip racks) whether they’re making good decisions or bad ones.
Never test the depth of the water with both feet. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve seen bus day-trip gamblers literally run into the casino and throw money on the table without having any idea of how the dice are rolling. Now, the math folks among us will tell you that the dice have no memory and the odds of any number rolling at any time are the same from one roll to the right. Mathematically they are correct. Still, craps is a game of streaks and trends. These streaks and trends are easily recognizable in hindsight - a little more difficult when they’re actually happening. And always remember that dice having no memory thing. With that said, the dice don’t have a memory but they do have a history. I have found that history has a way of repeating itself. That’s why I track not only table results - but individual shooter results when I’m playing. Let the dice take a trip or two around the table and I can pretty much tell you who the shooters are - and who you should bet the don’ts on.
Before I could make any recommendations about betting strategies I’d need to know the numbers mentioned above. Also your risk tolerance. Also your preferred mode of play - right way or wrong way - place or lay bets - come or don’t come . . . you tell me. And don’t give us any of that Doey-Don’t or Five Count horse crap. Both approaches are flawed.
