Covering All the Numbers

This tactic is for players with small bankrolls who want action on every roll.

As you become experienced with the rhythm roll, you will want all the numbers working for you-even the 2, 3, 11, and 12, which do not count after your point is established. The way to do this is to work with a field ~bet. The field bet is a one-roll bet that pays even money if you roll a 3, 4, 9, 10, or 11, and double on the 2 and 12. You win if any of these numbers are rolled on the next roll, and you lose on a non-field number: 5, 6, 8 and, of course, 7.

The tactic is to place the 5, 6, and 8 for two units ($10, $12, and $12) and play the field for one unit (which is $5 in our example). In this way, you win no matter what the outcome of the next roll is (except, of course, the losing 7). If the 5, 6, or 8 hit, y-on win $14 and lose your $p field bet for a net win of $9. If the field hits, you win $5 (or $10 if the 2 or 12 is thrown), with your place bets not affected (they stay up until you take them down or the 7 is thrown). For this betting tactic, you have to bet the field on every roll because it is a one-roll bet.

This strategy is aggressive because you are risking $39 or just about eight betting units to win one or two (Sp on a field number, and $9 on a p, 6, or 8). As long as your SRR is 7 or higher, however, you can afford to take the risk. Conservative players may wish to take their place bets down after four, five, or six rolls and stop betting the field. In this way you lock up your profits before the losing shows. Aggressive bettors will use their profits to finance the other place bets-the 4, 9, and 10. The field bet would be terminated as these bets are made.

Your Own Private Banker
Anytime a game's rake comes out of the pot (as opposed to coming as a button charge or an hourly rate), players who play a lot of hands pay a disproportionate share of the rake. You shouldn't change a winning style just to avoid rake; that would be silly. Most players play too many hands anyway. By trying to avoid rake responsibility, most loose players would improve their overall results.

With a set fee, the banker might cut each pot at an agreed-upon rate until that fee is reached. At that point the banker no longer takes anything from the pots.

In social games, the player might agree to cut the pots until a certain amount is reached to repay the host for the cost of refreshments-or maybe for a present to mollify the host's spouse for putting up with the disruption!
