    Not a fan of hedges of any kind. Dilutes wins. I’d rather pick a side and run with it.

    I see so many players utilize hedge strategies on bubble craps. I assume this is done on the bubble rather than the table where it is far easier to push and pull bets and make many offsetting wagers without getting sighs from the dealers.

    If it works for you...run with it but I would rather decrease house edge, not increase it.

    Trav6pack... welcome to the Front Lines of Craps.

    The Don't Pass players that I know as seasoned... play the Don't Pass with whatever their wagering is comfortable and maximum odds.

    The average Don't Pass player plays a reasonable Flat Bet, NO odds. Do not toss out any money on the Any Seven or Eleven. ...and be patient.

    I have seen the Don't Pass player winning more often than Pass Line players, lately.

    If you want to 'play the long shots' I would wager the Don't Pass and wager on the Hard Four and Hard Ten. Just to keep the game interesting for a Don't player. If a four or ten is rolled, there are only two ways to lose on a FOUR, and one way to be paid 7 to 1. If a Seven is rolled... it did not matter any ways, BUT you won your Don't Pass wager.

    Hedging your Don't Pass is not a good plan. If you get past the 7 or 11 on the Come Out... you already have the advantage. The best Don't Players just sit it out and wait. If you lose, play the same amount and sit it out. I have stepped up to several tables last week and watched. The Don't Pass player at one Casino made a small fortune and the other Casino the Don't Pass had no one wagering... but one winner and five Seven Outs while I watched.

    I started playing Keno for 6 out of 6 games. Low cost per game. High House Advantage. $320 payout for 20 cent play. Relaxing. Picking numbers at random. What could go wrong? Not much with 100 straight losses for 20 cent play, $20 Bankroll, if you are having bad luck anywhere in a Casino.

    This is my low cost Craps Rehab. I believe it is working. I can watch a hot table and not have an urge to participate. I watch a cold table and glad I was not playing.
