I had given my strategy for play with a $200 bank roll on a previous post. When I say bank roll, I mean I have $200 to throw into action using my well tested game plan. Of which, I have one game plan that I tweak when I am holding more house chips in my rack than bank roll, and have pressed bets across the table in play. I play the same with a $300 bank roll in the rack, or $500. You press up your game with... HOUSE CHIPS as you are winning. If your are losing... hang in there for those good hits on your bets and begin pressing your bets up as you go. Not all, but what ever bets you... think... could be repeaters. That is what makes Craps the game of champions... well next to Poker, but that takes a different kind of talent, which I do not have. If you are stepping onto tables that end up being losers... $200 goes quick. I walk and might just watch. Tough to do when you love to play, but watch other players. If a game goes hot... you already missed the "past plays" and if you step in after the fact, it could be the ultimate cleaning out of your future game play. A losing table, $1000 can go quick with the play that a bank roll of $1000 demands. If you want to toss $1000 onto a table and play $5 bets, all of the players and... dealers know you are no threat. Even the Boxman will not give you a second thought on your game card. You just think people are impressed with lots of green chips with the reds and white/blue $1 chips in table play, they aren't. The table pays the same odds no matter the color of the chip(s) in play. Although having green chips hitting multiple times is a very... pleasant experience. Leaving with them in your pocket is another story. Only play what you can afford to lose. That way you do not play conservative when you should be pressing bets during a hot roll. I have been down to my last bit of bank roll, a four becomes point and I put all of my chips out on the table with my 6/8 placed, 6/8 hardways and a hard 4. Anything left over goes onto my Pass Line odds on the 4. If you lose, it was an effort deserving someone with a mind of steel! But, if the 6's and 8's are hitting, and some hard and then the 4 comes in hard for a Pass... you color up and step off the table for a breather. Scared Money is the term the dealers use when a player chokes up and will not back off the table. Play to Win. And if you win big, if the Pit Boss is watching and finds you with some house money with your ambitious play... ask for that FREE BUFFET or show ticket. Casinos LOVE winners. They come back to play and tell their friends how nice the dealers are at that Casino. At the worst. If you are leaving as a winner or loser after your game, ASK for some canceled dice. Great hobby and some day they might be worth something! At least practice at home your game plan and see if it is solid... winning more than losing at home. Over the long haul of playing Craps, if you break even over a lifetime of playing... you did BETTER than all of the BSers that NEVER lose at Craps. Those pesky pairs of dice cannot be trusted to pay off a dividend when you have bets on the table, but it sure beats playing other table games, doesn't it?
