We all had a beginning at the Craps Table. You learn a little each time you play, but MORE if you watch others and their Game/System. At first use the Dice Outcome Pyramid to understand which numbers are more likely to occur than others. Understand HOW Odds are determined if you Win by the Dealer. Understand Pass Line odds and the Don't Pass odds as well as Place Bets and Lay Bets. Understand that there are TWO SIDES to Craps. The Pass Line and the Don't Pass. Understand when one game has an advantage and then the other game. Also WHEN this occurs. Why do the majority of Craps Players play the Pass Line. Understand why, first. Then consider the the same for the Don't Pass player's game. You must understand both sides of the game before being proficient at Craps. Even if you will always prefer one aspect of Craps. Dice Influencing is a disputed skill set most often wagered on the PASS Line. It also assumes more risk as you are risking more wagers for a longer period of time. Smart players who are winning, take money OFF the table and may even take ALL wagers that can be removed and lock them up in their Chip Rack. Sure... the game could go on, OR, the next roll is a Seven Out wiping out any serious wins. Why not Dice Setting for the Don't Pass? Once your Bankroll is gone. You are finished. If you are fishing, why put all of your bait on the hook at one time? Craps is a mathematical game. You win 35% of your Bankroll, whatever than number may be, is 35%. When you figure how long your Bankroll needs to be invested at 2% annual interest... only then will you get the message. Make Believe is Dice Setting, Biased Dice and other similar options. Do they work? Well... if you want to pay to play... this is a fantastic option. Much like wanting to be a professional Poker Player with lessons, while you have a hard time recalling the last telephone number you had years ago. Once you realize that there is nothing EASY about winning, it is soon you will understand the LOSING part without difficulty. One game does not make you an expert. Fifty years is not much better. Do not believe everything posted on any forum. Do not believe me. Eventually you will realize Craps beats skilled players as well as novices. The game does not pick and chose whom... but everyone catches a long roll... in their sleep. Not as likely at an actual table.
