    come bets and place bets, people switch back and forth and together, each session will yield different outcomes naturally, random summed it up, Ill just add play with what you are comfortable doing. don't chase money. don't play the money, if you are going to sweat the money, stop playing.

    when I used to play in AC 3-6 times a month, the dealers would joke, hey, you could go up to your room and Ill play your bets for you and let you know how you did later.

    If anything, both a pass/come bet strategy and pass/place strategy will have their moments. When I walked by yesterday before starting to play...

    Pass/come bettor still in the game and not bleeding even with eight 7's in 15 rolls. The pass/place buy bettor (especially if he adds several place/buys after come out) isn't faring too well.

    Time and place. Both strategies will work....and not, at times.

    As random roller noted...there is no "one size fits all" nor is there any "right game" or "wrong game".

    Like going to a restaurant....party of 6 will each likely have a different combination of drink, appetizer, meal, dessert and coffee.

    Craps play is no different. It's an individual game, not a team sport.

    If you are playing and your betting strategy is constantly bleeding money
    the smart player will make a change to his strategy.

    Let's rephrase the wording so it is not misleading and not
    liable to lead a person to needless losses.

    Rather than saying there is no , "RIGHT GAME" or "WRONG GAME"
    how about we alter the statement just a tad to say
    there is no game that is "ALWAYS RIGHT" or "ALWAYS WRONG"

    The REALITY is that , the "RIGHT GAME" sometimes may be
    "THE WRONG GAME" other times.
    The smart player will play the game that is ,
    "THE RIGHT GAME" for the moment, The smart player will bet
    according to what numbers the dice are providing.

    Not exactly....

    I'm going to quote your friend, Rick...."since the math must work out, the numbers that haven't appeared must catch up to those that have appeared"

    Ergo...the numbers that the dice haven't been giving you must "catch up" and appear...therefore, bet those numbers that haven't been rolling.

    "RIGHT GAME"....for the moment.

    I see they still haven't fixed the Video screen that shows the dice. It was that way when I was there 3 weeks ago. Doesn't matter to me since I don't use it but I see a lot of people who do.

    Last day I was there a tech was trying to change out the players card display on the terminal next to me. He stripped out a screw and was not having a good morning, lol. I thought about mentioning to him that they could change to a torx or square head screw instead of using the Phillips screws that probably came from the factory because the heads on those tend to strip less but decided to take the silent route and kept my mouth shut.

    The right game is to be on the number that comes up.
    if you bet the 6 or 8 and the 5 or 9 shows , your bet was on the
    wrong number for that particular roll.
    If your bet was on the 6 and the 6 shows you were on the right number.

    I've given up telling them about the tech issues. Some of the cameras are not working (I don't use them)....several of the card readers were pushed in and one push the button has been sketchy for a year now. They give you lip service...."we'll take a look".

    They've been installing new slots like it's going out of style...but have been very lax in maintaining the Aruze craps. Seems when Aruze does come out, they change dice, clean glass and sometimes replace felt. The machine needs a full overall. Shut it down for the day and make it like new.

    Very interesting...I did not know that and I suspect no else here did either.

    Would you look at that....a price scanner at the supermarket. My god, what will they think of next?

    TDV you can get as sarcastic and insulting as you want
    that changes nothing. You continue these arguments you can't
    win , you get all bent then want to start insulting.
    I know you want nothing more than you want to convince me
    that I can't do what I am doing.
    You have said yourself , you have PLAYED FOR YEARS and are
    net negative as tho that is the only POSSIBLE OUTCOME , it isn't
    you need to stop promoting that as the only possible outcome.

    What you’re doing?

    You’re sitting at home typing away 24/7.

    You’re not trying to convince people that you actually play craps? Are you?

    That is a bit of a stretch, 24/7
    You aren't actually trying to convince people I don't are you.

    If it makes you feel better to think I don't then think that ,
    what you think doesn't change anything.
    It's not the playing or not playing that has you in a tailspin.
    It's the game I play that has you crazy . You have said you are
    net negative for the time you have played. Because you can't
    find a way to win you think losing is all their is. Some of us do win
    accept that.
    You've been on this James doesn't play for three years now , nothing
    changes , I still play , I still win.
    I play when I want to or ,,,, oh hell you know when and why I play.
    You know , you don't like it but you know.
    Give it up , "Learn To Win Or Quit"
    but one thing you SHOULD DO for sure is
    quit your damned sniveling and bitching.
