Aggressive System Right Bettor

This method of betting gives the house a slightly higher edge in certain situations, but it allows the right bettor to always cover the 6 and 8 and have these two numbers continually working for him.

Since the 6 and the 8 can each be made in five ways, they will come up more than any other point number and will be the heart of any hot, continuous roll.

When betting this aggressive method, either single or double odds games can be played, but the preference is always for double odds.

The same unit bets are made as in the basic strategy-three units where single odds are allowed and two units where double odds are permitted.

Single Odds
-- Bet three units on the pass line and take maximum free odds on every point.
-- Make enough come bets to establish two come numbers, then make no more come bets.
-- If either the 6 or 8, or both, have not been covered by the pass line and come bets, then bet six units on the 6 and/or 8 as a place bet.
-- If a come bet or pass-line bet repeats and is paid off, increase the betting as in the basic strategy, from three units to five or six and then increase the wager by three units after each win.
-- If the 6 or 8 repeats as a place bet, increase the bet by two units. If the initial place wager was \$30, increase it by \$12 to \$42. If the initial bet was only \$6, then increase it by \$6 after every repeat. Of course, if the basic unit used was = \$25 chip, it will be increased by two units, or \$50, after every payout. This is assuming that the initial bet was \$150.
Using this method, it may be possible that a come bet other than a 6 or 8 will repeat and then the new come bet number will be a 6 or 8 while it's a place number. In that case, take down the 6 or 8 as a place number and continue it only as a come number. Let's explain this more carefully in the following example.
Suppose that the following roll ensued, with the bettor wagering \$15 as his basic bet.
Come-out roll: 9 (point) \$15 and \$20 odds
First come roll: 8 \$15 and \$25 odds
Second come roll: 5 \$15 and \$20 odds
The player now bets \$30 (six units) on the 6, since it wasn't covered by any of the previous rolls, and stops betting.
Third come roll: 5 \$45 win
The player now bets \$25 in the come box, since the 5, being repeated as a come number, was taken down.
Fourth come roll: 6 \$36 win as place bet
\$25 and \$25 odds on the 6

Lying is part of poker, at least at the table, but lying to the IRS about your winnings is asking for big trouble. The IRS will hit you with penalties and interest if your deductions are too aggressive, but their penalties get really serious when you don't report income. That's when they start talking about things like jail time. Omitting the twenty bucks you won at your uncle's house probably won't land you in the slammer, but think twice before you fail to report serious earnings.

For many players, not keeping records is a way of denying to themselves how they're doing. The player who tells others (and convinces himself) that he's breaking even may well be losing hundreds or thousands of dollars over the course of a year. Someone who plays weekly and has huge fluctuations-ahead \$500 one week, down \$1,000 the next-could easily average losing \$100 a week and never realize it or face it. That's over \$5,000 a year.

Similarly, the player who claims to "lose just a little" might well be losing tens of thousands of dollars.
Having it recorded forces a player to confront the situation and it may also cause him to attempt to do something about it. Doing something could involve playing for smaller stakes, playing different games, playing elsewhere, or other adjustments.
