Introductory Strategy

For the average recreational player who wishes to bet with the bettor, I recommend that you only go up on two numbers-the pass line and one come number-until you've hit one of them once. If that happens, then use the pass line/come to work your way to three numbers. Stick with three numbers until you have four times the amount in winnings as you have at risk on the board. When this happens, then spread to four numbers. When you have four times the amount wagered on four numbers, spread to five numbers. When you have four times the amount of your five numbers, go up on all six numbers. Keep putting come bets on the layout so that you stay on six numbers. Don't press (increase) your bets until you have a handsome sum tucked away and are assured of a good win.

I also recommend that you apply my Rule of Ten: Have ten times your anticipated betting plan as your session stake. With this bankroll, you should be able to get into the action with enough in reserve to ride out the bad rolls and take advantage of the good rolls.

Be Careful About Trying any Kind of Fancy Play or Tricky Bluff Against an Inexperienced Player
Players new to the game tend to focus exclusively on their own hands and ignore opponents' cards or subtle moves. Inexperienced players will give you enough money by calling on hands they don't belong in; don't hope to get more with finesse plays they'll never see coming.

Less common (fortunately!) is verbal consecutive declaration. Each player states in order whether he or she is contending for low, high, or the whole pot. This gives such a big advantage to the last player to declare that it is almost unfair, because it forces you to call a similar game when it is your turn to deal, just to obtain a similar advantage.How is the declaration order determined in consecutive declaration games? Some games just start to the dealer's left. Just as late position can turn a moderate holding into a playable hand in hold'em, so too can late declaration position encourage you to play more starting hands in a split game. (Its converse is also true: If you know your declaration position will be early, you should play fewer hands.)
