I often wonder why people try and find the out of the way $3 tables. If you compare the difference it really doesn't amount to that much more expected loss playing on a $5 table. Take a fairly conservative play....$5 line bet, single or double odds, and place the 6 & 8 for $6 each. You have approximately $27 dollars average action per decision. On the $3 table it would be approximately $15 average action per decision. If you play for an hour, that would be somewhere around $250 more action on the $5 table than the $3 table (Based on 25-30 decisions per hour). That action amounts to around a negative expectation of 1.5 % on the line and place bets, and 0% on the odds bets. So only somewhere around an additional $150 would be exposed to the negative expectation on a $5 table verses a $3 table.....expected extra loss of around a couple of bucks! I did the math in my head, so maybe Alan or one of the other mathematicians will refine this some, but it isn't a big deal in my opinion. Of course the variance increase some, but having the choice of more tables appeals to me more than the possible variance thing.
