    Exactly and that is why before I even think about playing I take the scouting walk checking tables , listen to the dice hit watch the bounce then start out with the hard way set to see what my delivery is going to do
    the landin area on the table in my living room is about 3 inche both ends
    the table in the garage north end is about 8 inches south end is just beyond the pass line
    I bought these tables from casinos in Vegas the one in the living room had a sheet of plastic similar to shower curtain on the wood and a felt on a felt
    the one in the garage had something rather like thin conveyor belt rubber on the wood with some type of packing material on that
    I bought one 14 foot table out of MGM Grand that has s thick piece of white felt under the layout
    I took it off
    I still have it sold the table I won't play on 14 foot I do better on 12 ft.

    Not to worry, I always wear a steel hard hat for safety.

    It seems to me the trick is to find the balancing point between the two. If your loss limit is within your means then you should have no worries about walking out the joint with none of your stake left. If you can't do that then your loss limit is too high.

    Once the loss limit is determined one can focus on the other factors (e.g. playing time) that comprise the gambling experience, eventually arriving at a win goal. Theoretically all this can be calculated, but I seriously doubt any player does so...academicians perhaps, but not players. They arrive at a win goal through experience, perhaps even making the decision when enough is enough on the spur of the moment.

    The statement I posted above has nothing to do with win or loss limits
    it has to do only with how they choose the bets they will make
    whether or not to press and when to pull them down
    the novice will many times pull the win and hit that same number several times before a 7out
    then kick himself for not pressing . He makes that decision based on the fact that he could lose the ten or so dollars riding on it
    many of the more advanced players are looking at how much he could win in a 3 or 4 parlay win situation
    and will pull or press based on his experience in a similar past experience
    which player is right ???
    they both are
    if you let it ride parlay or press several times that was the exact right thing to do
    on the other hand if you pull the win and the next roll is 7out that too is correct
    all this should be based on the feeling at the time and should be made according to your own best evaluation of the situation as it applies to your own personal experience
    nothing always works
    for each of us these decisions should be made with , what works for us as individuals most of the time

    I use all the ones you know , then variations of those , as well
    each set I use on the tables for money depend on where my game is on that day and that table
    I scout tables before I play to see what table is most like one of the four ends of my two tables
    I play only when I find the bounce characteristic that matches one end or the other of my two and soon to be three tables
    I tell the guys in our group all the time I play only when conditions are perfect
    meaning when conditions of the table ie bounce characteristic position etc.

    A true DI should not have to scout anything. He should already know from prior experience what tables are best for him at what casino. I've seen the same mark on the tables at Red Rock that have been there for 6 months. Obviously one doesn't have to worry too much about the felt or underlayment being changed out.

    An experienced player should not have to scout any table. He already knows what table and where...suits him.

    Now, an inexperienced and infrequent player like James....I guess every 6 months he makes it into Vegas, he has to re-check.
