    Hi everyone
    I am a very conservative gambler. I play to a 30% win goal and 50% loss limit.
    My strategy is place the 6/8. After any two hits I take them all down. Please enter any input about this strategy or recommend another strategy. Going to Vegas in august and want to get some play in before getting there
    Thanks
    Ken

    You could do a lot worse. You are facing a house advantage of 1.52% of your bet handle, one of the lowest HAs available.

    And do what? Leave the table? Wait for the next shooter? Do you shoot?

    I hesitate to mention an alternate strategy without a little more information, specifically what factors are most important to you when evaluating whether a session was a positive or negative one.


    You might be interested in an article I wrote for Frank Scoblette's e-rag some years back.

    This is Barney

    According to the consensus of craps experts on this forum of crap, the best strategy is to bet on the numbers that are hitting (,take what table is giving you)...

    I'm guessing you like play around the 6/8 so I attach a link below of a thread I titled "How to make a fast $200". If nothing else is working maybe you give it a lash. Of course if the seven rears it's ugly head, do not pass go, do not collect $200.

    hey punch good luck in Aug...one hit and down simple and sweet.... your strategy will require a strict diligence not to stray to other bets if you are to achieve a 30% win goal....what is your buy in amount?

    I used to play a similar method in a previous life.

    $12 each 6/8
    First hit press one unit each to $18 each
    Second hit place 5/9 $10 each.

    Henceforth I tried to parlay whatever hit to a green chip. Eg, if 5/9 hit drop a dollar and parlay to $25. If 6/8 hit drop $3 and looks like $30 each.

    As soon as 3 of the 4 numbers had a green chip on them, then whatever hit next, even if it was the the red chip bet, i took them all down.
    If a green chip bet hit before I had 3 of the 4 up to the max I would just rack the winnings.

    It worked pretty well. I don't know why I stopped. Oh yeah a little thing called a seven messed it up for me more often than not.

    Becuse most hands end quickly....those who put money on the PL, take odds, bet the 6 and 8....can lose money quickly......

    I prefer to go thru the come box with no odds for approx 4 rolls....if early 7 out, not much , if any , damage......if no 7 out, I start putting odds on the numbers i have out there.......I still might get stung, but I've eliminated an early sting........and hopefully get on a longish roll.........all come bets will eventually be replaced by place bets......and then I take everything down before the 7 shows....

    koko......this is the plan........but like mike tyson said.....everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face with cinco dos, adios.

    i put that in there, half in jest, but that is what i try to do....and have done in the past..........i can't tell you how many times I have taken down my bets and the 7 rolls next bet or the one after......it's spooky.......that esp thing.

    Normally, someone would turn off /take down their bets in the middle of their hand......in this case you can't make a DPL bet.....however, you could make a DC bet, which would lose if the next toss was a 7..........but, your basic thought was a good one and going thru the DC would be a good idea at this point in the hand, imho.

    my instinct of turning off my bets, especially after a longish hand is based on due theory and the voices in my head......of course, these are all mathematically based.......the math is never wrong.
