    I need to tell you that the more I think about this the more I like it. If it was you, would you place the 6 and 8 until you got the come placed on them?

    I only will get into this hedge play when I am getting hurt at an abnormal pace on my come bets....I don't like to hedge and will only do so on a few specific situations. I like this play better than betting the craps bet to hedge the come.

    I am very cautious early......to answer your question I would not do it...i.e. bet the 6/8.

    I'm not saying it is a bad play....I am saying, I, personally, would not do it. It's really a personal decision and what should primarily drive it is your buy-in i.e. over-betting.

    You should develope rules for your play and obey them.

    IMHO.

    Got it. I do like the crap check on the pass line...just seems a cheap cover, and will consider the field if the conditions seem to warrant it. Thanks for the info and idea...much appreciated

    ps.....For me the crap check is the same. If a craps numbers seems to be hitting
    often i will take a craps check, if not i wont. ITs not hard to watch a number of hands
    and get a feel for it. Peacepeople if you ever played the blackjack game 21 +3 it
    is sorta like the 9 to 1 bonus bet. Terrible bet considering the odds, but not always
    if you calculate the percentage of the time it is hitting at that time and match the frequency of your bets
    to reduce the house edge, it can be a good bet, so can the crap check.

    Anything with an edge North of 13% is not cheap cover!!!

    If you aren't taking max odds make an equal pass line and don't pass bet. Then take $10 more odds than you normally do. Lot cheaper cover than a craps check over the course of a few sessions..

    On the come bet don't worry about it, if you want to play some money for fun utilize the see a horn bet a horn strategy or the old dealer favorite "second roll yo" bets or whatever you like.

    Are you getting your feet wet with a bit of "DI" and want to know how to bet
    so you don't lose too much when it doesn't appear to be working so well?

    I think the best thing to do, DI or not, is avoid getting a casino rewards card.
    If you are without one, you can avoid betting as much or as frequently or when
    the floor-person is "looking" because you just won't and shouldn't care.

    Remember that you will pay ten times over for any of your so-called comps if
    you bet like most players who don't use small-bettor strategies.
    Some good ones have already been suggested. Make sure you learn to use
    both do and don't strategies. Over time you'll get a better feel for when to
    use or switch strategies with what the table is doing. If you're not foolish
    enough to start out your craps gaming with $500 session bankrolls and want
    to more frequently color in for $100 and hope you don't go back into your
    wallet, use a hedge bet or doey/dont. If your brain/gut is telling you that by
    having a $10 bet get whacked on the come-out is getting old, and if a $2 crap
    or 7/11 bet makes that $10 bet "feel" better, then it's OK FOR YOU. So what
    if the math says otherwise when in the short-term (current session), you are
    right about the table trend and your reduced come-out results in more 8$ wins
    vs. $10 losses, and keeps you in for the winning outcome.

    In any case, your limited bankroll may last a lot longer when a table is choppy
    and the typical $44-inside players are losing $100 every few minutes.
    And since those typical players get reward comps that will DWARF the
    relatively negligible credits you would get for betting at small-bettor levels,
    rejoice in what that will not cost you.

    Although it's an extremely boring way to to play....Kokomo's Passline with odds, or placing only one number is a good way to play. Increasing your odds as your wins increase.

    For those that just MUST have a little more action....How about wagering on only two numbers MAX, no matter how you bet, ie..Come betting, or place Betting?

    Now, GTC recommends "Come betting/placing 6&8....Frank stated that after many years of play that he does best betting only the Number Six!
    Multi betting is just too volatile, & the Return of investment SUCKS!

    The problem I have with the article is the underlying assumption of a statistically correct distribution for every player. I'll buy that narrative (statistically correct distribution) for the cumulative outcome of the population of craps players over time. For an individual craps player, YMMV, even over the long run.

    Yup, I throw an inordinate amount of 1/2's on comeout. Need to find a repeater bet table to clean up but AFAIK, there is none in Southern MS.
