Comment on Don’t Fight a Cold Table, Adapt to It by Philip Donohoe http://www.crapspit.org/dont-fight-cold-table/#comment-1655 Sat, 15 Apr 2017 21:25:00 +0000 http://www.crapspit.org/?p=7437#comment-1655 Trouble is, with any “streak” (hot or cold), you can only identify it after it’s over and wish (in hindsight) you’d found a way to identify it in advance. For example, with, say, three or five seven outs in a row, you can then bet Don’t Pass. But if the seven outs quit, your streak is obviously over. If you get another seven out, all you know is it lasted one more seven out, but that’s no reason to expect yet another seven out, unless you subscribe to the Gambler’s Fallacy. Nothing can predict what the next roll of the dice will yield, no more than the prior spin results can predict what color the next spin of the roulette wheel will yield. That’s the exact lesson you’ve taught us. Talk of recognizing and adapting to “streaks” (hot or cold) always rely on past results to seek to predict future outcomes. Any streak is only hot or cold — until it’s not.

Comment on How to Bet to Minimize Losses and Be Around for the Hot Roll by Nick Wilson http://www.crapspit.org/minimize-bet-losses-craps-hot-roll/#comment-1647 Sun, 09 Apr 2017 01:44:00 +0000 http://www.crapspit.org/?p=7589#comment-1647 Not sure if you’re still around, but wanted to thank you for such a great site! I played/threw away my money a couple years ago in Vegas but really enjoyed myself. After reading most of your site and following this exact strategy I happened to be around for the “hot dice!” 45 minutes and 6 points made I walked away with 4x my initial bet!! Had a blast the whole time! Is there still online craps you can play in the U.S.?

Comment on Don’t Fight a Cold Table, Adapt to It by crapspit http://www.crapspit.org/dont-fight-cold-table/#comment-1638 Mon, 06 Mar 2017 17:25:00 +0000 http://www.crapspit.org/?p=7437#comment-1638 Hi Slypig, thanks for your comment. Please refer to our articles on craps systems and hedge bets. If betting that way makes you feel good or comfortable, or if it’s a fun way for you to play the game, then go for it. Entertainment in Vegas usually costs money, so betting your complex hedge system is just another entertainment expense. But don’t think you’re going to win over the long term. And don’t forget, just because the bet is complex and looks exotic, it’s still a losing bet. You should compute the overall house advantage and you might be surprised at how much you’re giving up to the casino. But, again, if it makes the game fun for you, then go for it. That’s the key; if you have fun with it and you’re willing to accept the losses that go with it, then the bet is no worse than any other bet. Thanks again for your post.

All the hard ways for $5 each – working on the come-out – hop the 7 for $2 each and a $5 horn-high Yo. That is $31 action. I don’t play the Pass Line either. You win on a 2,3,7,11,12 and cash in nicely on a hard way. The bad part is when a point is established the easy way – you have to rebet the hard-way. You will be surprised how many times a hard way comes on the Come-Out roll. Plus when others are losing their Pass Line bets on a 2,3,12, you are winning.

Comment on Don’t Fight a Cold Table, Adapt to It by crapspit http://www.crapspit.org/dont-fight-cold-table/#comment-1633 Fri, 24 Feb 2017 15:28:00 +0000 http://www.crapspit.org/?p=7437#comment-1633 Phil, thanks for your comment and for your nice words. We appreciate hearing from our readers, and we’re glad our website has helped you learn the game. Technically, you’re correct. Yes, adapting to a cold table does involve relying on past results to predict future results, but let’s see if we can find an acceptable justification for using it. Casinos rely on the Gambler’s Fallacy to get non-bettors to bet. Recall from our other article the example of the tote boards by the roulette wheels. Suppose one of those tote boards shows the last 5 hands were even numbers. A non-bettor strolling through the casino sight-seeing might think, “Wow, that wheel has been all even, it can’t be even again, so I’m going to bet odd.” Gotcha! The tote board relied on the Gambler’s Fallacy to suck that guy in and get him to make a bet that he normally wouldn’t make (i.e., if he hadn’t seen the tote board, he would have walked right by the wheel and continued sight-seeing). Now, let’s go to the craps table. Suppose you’re a staunch Pass bettor; you hate the Don’t and anybody who bets the Don’t. There’s no way you’ll switch to the Dark Side. When the table turns cold, you continue playing, you don’t walk away. You beat your chest, and stand and fight the dice until you toss in your last $1 chip. Now, you’re broke. You have no choice but to quit. You walk away mad, blaming everything except your own stubborn play for your losses. We know trends occur in craps (that’s what “streaks” are). Our objective during a cold streak is to ride it out and stay at the table as long as possible. We don’t want to quit. We came to Vegas to play craps, not walk around sight-seeing. So, if you’re going to continue playing through a cold streak anyway, then the Gambler’s Fallacy isn’t tempting you to make bets that you normally wouldn’t. That is, you continue making bets because you want to keep playing, not because of the Gambler’s Fallacy. So, if you’re going to continue playing anyway regardless of the Gambler’s Fallacy, and if you know streaks do occur in craps, then why not try to take advantage of those streaks and try to minimize your losses to maximize your playing time? If you know you’re in the middle of a cold streak (it’s usually obvious), are you going to be one of those losers who beats his chest and stands to fight against the streak? Yes, as you stated, the streak could end immediately after switching, but that’s a risk I’m willing to take. And even if it does go the other way soon after switch, you won’t be losing that much because you’re minimizing your betting action while playing the cold streak (i.e., make minimum Don’t Pass flat bets with single Odds). Remember, your objective is to stay at the table playing and survive the cold streak so you’re still at the table when a hot streak appears. Phil, yes, technically you’re correct. By switching to the Don’t, you’re basing your play on past results. But in this case, history has proven to our bankrolls that it’s better to switch and play the cold streak with the minimum Don’t bets than it is to stand and fight. Thanks again for your post. Have fun and good luck at the tables!

Comment on Don’t Fight a Cold Table, Adapt to It by Phil http://www.crapspit.org/dont-fight-cold-table/#comment-1631 Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:01:00 +0000 http://www.crapspit.org/?p=7437#comment-1631 I’ve really enjoyed all the articles, learned a lot, and increased my $100 bankroll by 50 percent 3 out of 4 times in Vegas the first 4 times I’ve ever played Craps. However, let me observe your comments about a hot or cold table obviously succumb to the Gambler’s Fallacy, assuming past results forecast future results. In fact, the distribution variance can kick in on the very next roll of the dice, in either direction, for you or against you. So, when you switch your Pass bet to Don’t Pass, that could very well occur right before the dice change on you. And assuming otherwise relies on only the fallacy, doesn’t it? Beyond that point, this website is golden. Thanks.
