Back on the rec.gambling.craps newsgroup 'redleathers' advocated picking a time to make that one big bet that would make all of the other bets you make/made insignificant, a Big Bang Strategy so to speak. Not a bad idea, actually, except he thought he had some special talent for picking when the time was right for "banging". Speaking of the old newsgroup many regulars there had a shoot on sight rule of engagement toward John Patrick. While I often questioned his THEORIES and METHODS (which he always capitalized) I never did discount them as utter rubbish. He called one such THEO...sorry, theory/method, which you might consider, the Sayonara Bet. As your last action before quitting a session you lay equal amounts no-4 and no-10. Whether you win both bets (on a 7) or lose one of them (on a 4 or 10, taking down the unresolved one) you're outta there. IIRC he pitched this T...er, theory/method as going for the gusto after a sizable win, using all of that win for the two bets, but it could also be used to try to recoup some or all of your losses. The beauty of the bet is that you can win but not lose both bets on one roll, so even if you have a sizable sum on the felt only half of it is truly at risk. For example, I believe you reported you were once up $75 on a $100 buy-in. Were I you (and so inclined) I would lay $50 each no-4, no-10. Ignoring the $2 vig and when it is collected I have a 50-50 chance of winning or losing $50, and even if I lose I am still packing out $23 or $25 of "house money".
