Before
we calculate the player advantage for the 6 and 8
place bets, it is necessary to establish a point of
departurethe casino advantage.
A place bet can be made on any number at any time.
For the 6 and 8 place bet, you wager $6 to win $7
that the 6 will roll before the 7 shows. As long as
you roll the dice without the 7 showing, you collect
on every 6 or 8 that is rolled.
Applying the basic formula:
Explanation. 7 to 6 is what the casino pays, but the
actual odds of a 6 or 8 occurring before a 7 are 6
to 5. The probability of outcome, that is, a 6 rolling
before a 7, is 5/11 because the 6 has p chances of
hitting out of 36 rolls, while the 7 has 6 chances
in 36 of being rolled. Simple probability theory for
just these two events5 chances for the 6 or 8, and
6 chances for the 7 or a total of 11 chancessays
that the probability of outcome of the 6 or 8 is 5
divided by 11, or 3/11.

After
the fourth card has been exposed, players declare
which half of the pot they're competing for. Sometimes
the game is played with a bet after the declare.
One strategic key is to remember what you passed and
to whom. If, for example, one of the cards you passed
to the left is the key to that player's hand and it
does not show up during the rolling phase, you can
be sure he has the card in the hole. If you passed
called "paints" or "pictures")
to the left and the player appears likely that he
has a strong low hand.
