    Question of the day. Over-expose, or under-expose?
    Considering the nature of the game i.e. short rolls, 7Out takes all,
    how does one feel about being under-exposed?

    But wait...are you saying - leave potential winnings on the table by turning your bets off or pulling them down? Well, when the 7 hits, guess what, money's gonna be left on the table, anyway.
    Maybe it's time to think about getting in & getting out before the 7 hits - no matter how many more numbers the shooter rolls. Repeat to yourself: "I don't care...I don't care"Short of getting it perfect, maybe accept less to win more?
    Consider your own indicators, any way you want to work it.
    Patience just might give your bankroll new life.
    Incremental; Slow & steady. Just the right expose!
    Play the long game.

    This isn't sex boys...you're free to pull out early.

    I enjoy the 3 yards and a cloud of dust game much more than the Hail Mary style of play.

    We're all different players, but I don't like the getting out or going smaller while winning CBK. I go small enough with the normal starting play, with the intention of losing small if I am going to lose, something that happens way more often than I would like.

    You did say that we should use our own indicators. Absolutely, the player should play however he wants to.

    Then again, I am not a place bettor nor much of a multiple bet player. The only way my wagers get big is with consecutive winners that keep showing, and I ain't stopping the increases until the loser shows.

    The most powerful words in the game...." I'm off"........I've said it hundreds of times and it has saved me a TON.....however, I cannot argue with what KoKO said........I admire a player like that........I must tell you also, I have let it ride many times as well, but not as often....over the years I have developed into a more conservative player.

    I have said many times that this "Due" thing and this "Streak" thing drives me a little crazy.....the guy on my left shoulder says..." go for it...let it ride....don't be a chicken shit, GO FOR IT...THIS IS THE ONE"..................the guy on my right shoulder says......" keep your head....where is this discipline you always talk about.....you've already got a decent score.....that friggin' 7 hasn't shown in a looong time and you KNOW she'll show in the next roll or two.....don't lose that 600 on the table......take it down and build her back up......you'll be sorrrry "

    Sometimes the Left wins....sometimes the Right........it's one of those feely, artsy things that carries the day.

    What did Sun Tzu, George Washington,
    Sam Houston, Ho Chi Min, Gandhi
    Martin Luther King & Nelsen Mandela
    all know?
    That you don't need to win,
    you just need...to not lose.
    They were patient until it it was
    clear that they had the advantage.
    They knew victory was in
    the long game.

    I’ll give you the start of my system.

    18-24-24-54-66.

    Or

    12-12-24-24-54-66

    If you just use that. You’ll beat the casino overtime. Cuz you pay your bets, double em and collect again. Which means you pull 15(14)+28 out of 12 or 18$ you invest. After, do whatever you want, play your profits.

    Do not mistake my softness
    for weakness, my yielding
    for cowardice, my compliance
    for acceptance, or my silence
    for ignorance. I've come into
    my "soft power". Against all odds,
    I now play to my "yin" advantage.
    I'm patient, intuitive w/good timing.
    And when things are going my way
    to put the petal to the metal.
    I play the long game.

    It becomes impossible to lose once you are playing
    with house money only. Most winning strategies employ
    that principle as part of their overall betting strategy

    Does it need to manifest right now?
    You're lackful & blocking it.
    Am I perfectly fine without it?
    You're abundant & allowing it.
    Play the long game.
