    you might not believe this , but over the years I have had many many people tell me
    "ACTUALLY I DON'T CARE IF I WIN OR LOSE I JUST PLAY FOR FUN . IT'S A HOBBY , WHEN I LOSE $2OO I QUIT"

    I can understand that completely. And there is nothing wrong with that. But this wasn't one of those guys. I enjoy playing the game and I fully know the expectations of the game.

    How about the "off on the first roll after the point is established"Reverse Five Count"? It goes something like this: 5Point, no bet , bet, bet, bet, Everything down! You are betting only three rolls after the point is established & taking everything down after roll number five! I play this way when my toss is a little "off", & i am trying to correct (trouble shoot) my toss, prior to ending a lousy session. Most of the time i will just walk away, but on my "Stuborn, I don't want to leave the Table Days", this is how i play!

    Just want to make sure I read this correctly, when you have 6 & 8 hard parlayed to'
    $1000, then you make sure you also have a $1000 place bet on the 6 & 8 ????
    So that is $4000 in action plus the other bets you have working.

    Look, if you place 6-8 for 12 you get paid 14. What's 2$ on the hard when you have the box to cover it. On a win you parlay it once then just double the bet after. All it cost ya is 2$ if it 7out. Go for only one, not two.

    lol, that's what I did. The 6 & 8 had $1080 each to be exact and the 6&8 hard had $1000 each. The guy next to me almost pissed himself he had to go the bathroom so bad, but couldn't leave the table until he saw the outcome. All this starting with $300. One of the most exciting nights I had gambling in 34 years. My friends were shaking their heads because the 6 & 8 came in soft a couple of times at that bet and I was just replacing the hard ways...basically pissing away $1000 each time (of course it wouldn't have been bad if they came in hard at that betting level) :)

    You got that right Freddy those bets are gold when you are hitting them
    if you know you can that's the way to bet
    it's hard to win at craps cashing $6 bets

    Had some more hardway excitement a couple weeks back on 2/13/17 at Caesars in Atlantic City. Come out roll...I play a $20 horn, $5 each on 6 & 8 hard hopping with a $50 pass line bet. I roll the dice...HARD 6! Got paid $145 as I kept the hardway hop bets up. Point is 6. I then press both Hardway Hop bets up to $10 each and place $50 on the Hard 6 with $60 odds on my passline bet. Very next roll...HARD 6!!! Hop bet pays $300, all day Hardway pays $450, plus I got paid on the passline with odds. Not a bad payday for two rolls back to back. Unfortunately, I sevened out after the next come out roll but I walked away a happy guy that night. This is the 2nd time a scenario like this played out. Coincidentally the last time was almost three years ago to the day on 2/14/14
