    Im currently reading the Dice Doctor, and he talks about this play called the Firemans Play. Its very similar to a 3 point molly, except when your come bet with odds is rolled, you take all those winnings and place them right back on the come bet. In the book he only talks about the dice hitting an 11, but never talks about what you do when you have all your winnings on the come bet and it goes to a number. Are you supposed to put odds on it?

    Thank you

    Move 2. - .... " We do not take odds on a parlayed bet ."

    All other bets that travel from the come box to a point number - take 2X odds.

    I've made that play many times through the years. I LOVE the power of the parlay. Maybe not mathematically correct, but when we're talking about a $10 - $25 PL bet it's not that big of a deal. With that said - in latter years I've taken to playing single odds on those parlayed bets. Just love getting those bonus dollars. Plus it makes the whole play more mathematically sound.
