Coach, how do you approach your play?

I have a few rules that I use when I go out to play. If you incorporate these ideas in your pre-game thought process, I think it will benefit your bottom line.

  • Pick your best time of day to play. Determine if you are more alert and energetic in the morning, afternoon or night, and play accordingly.
  • Don't play to long at any one time. Remember time is on the side of the casino. Also remember that mental-fatigue will set in after a while. I average 45 – 60 minutes playing time per session.
  • Play with a dedicated bankroll for each game you play. Determine your buy-in before you start, then set your stop-loss and stop-win limits.
  • Be disciplined, rested, and focus on your playing plan. Don't let distractions and interruptions bother you.
  • Don't bet too soon. Watch the table and see what is happening. What is the energy level of the game? Is it positive-where everyone is having a great time, or negative-where everyone seems down and lack-luster?
  • Are the shooters making passes or not? What numbers are rolling? Bet what is rolling and play in the moment. Remember the table is always seeking balance.
  • In craps, there are two ways to play. Either pass or don't pass. Once you figure out what is happing in the game, you can choose to either place or lay your bets. Let the game guide you.
  • Have FUN! Never play angry, disappointed, or frustrated.
I wish all of you a very successful 2018.

Another 20 minute roll!  I think between that little modification and adopting your betting tactics, that this will work well in the long run.  Thanks again!  - Bill - 

The less you bet the more you lose when you win.
