Coach, do you have to be a BIG bettor to be a good player?

Of course not! I have a lot of students who are recreational players who are very good players, they just play with smaller unit bets. Your unit size bets have to be within your comfort level and, of course, are determined by your total (BR) bankroll size.

I have a very new player who has only played 4 times in live casino action. He is a $5.00 bettor, which is what he is bankrolled for and is his comfort level.

We had a casino session on Friday night at Bally's Hotel and Casino on the strip, where there were four open tables, each already pretty full. We chose a table that had all of stick right open and I put the new student's wife at SR, with the student -Brian, at SR1.

He was concerned because I had only worked with him from the SL position. My advise to him was to take everything I had taught him from the SL position and reverse it. I suggested using the same grip and set, but shooting with his palm up instead of his palm down, rolling the dice off his fingers and hitting the back wall softly.

After a couple of random shooters, Brian got the dice and he set for the all seven set - 4/3 on top and 2/5 looking at him with a 6-1-6-1 axis, on the come out roll. During the point cycle, he set 5/3 on top and 4/2 looking at him, with a 6-1-1-6 axis. That particular evening I happened to have three other students at the table and I was positioned at table end opposite Brian.

Brian started rolling numbers and kept rolling numbers. Since he was very new, we were all betting small units, taking and pressing every other hit.

As the game progressed, the minimum bets were changed from $5.00 to $10.00 and then to $15.00. Unfortunately, the Pit did not "grandfather" us in with each minimum bet change. As Brian's roll continued, I told the pit crew - "all you're doing is forcing us to make more money!"

After it was all said and done, everyone at the table made more than $1,000.00 on Brian's roll.

Sometimes we don't let ourselves win because we have convinced ourselves that we can't shoot from a new or different position. Next time you are at a table and your position is not available, make some minor adjustments and try a new position. Just relax and roll some numbers.

So now you see that a good player, even though he is betting smaller units, can maximize his win on a good roll.

Try it and tell me how you do.

See you in the pits.

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 -
