This method has been tried many times in casino play
and has proven to be a winning one. It doesn't fight
the dice and attempt to throttle hot rolls. You work
along with the games, taking your profits slowly but
surely. Since you're always laying odds and putting
out more than you'll ever get back, you want to increase
your bets carefully.
When betting wrong, you can have only one number knocked
out by any single roll of the dice when a don't pass
or don't come number repeats. The right bettor, on
the other hand, is always fearful of the 7 wiping
out all his bets at one time.
The reason most wrong bettors don't come out winning,
even when they have a good thing going for them, is
that they get greedy and attempt to overcome a hot
roll by betting larger and larger amounts after every
loss. They fight that hot roll until they're completely
principle you must always follow in gambling, no matter
what games you play is this: Never increase bets when
losing, only when winning. In other words, if you've
lost a previous roll of the dice, don't increase your
wager. Only when you've had a previous win should
you take your bet. If you follow this principle, you'll
be breaking the back of a casino with their own money.
That's tough playing and smart betting.
you keep your records contemporaneously with your
playing, you might consider also keeping a log assessing
how you think you played. Write down plays that did
and didn't work, mistakes you might have made, and
patterns and tells you picked up about other players.
You can keep your log in a small spiral-bound notepad
that fits in your pocket. Or you might maintain a
database of players on a PDA. You might keep track
of how they play when winning versus losing, in what
situations they're most likely to have the goods or
bluffing, whether they get looser or tighter right
after winning or losing one or more pots, any mannerisms
or other tells you might have picked up. Maybe T J.
Cloutier and Phil Hellmuth, Jr. can keep all that
information on every opponent they've ever had in
their heads for years; I know I can't.
