gamblers bet right because they are permitted odds
bets, and when they take the odds on these bets, they
are paid at better than even money. On the other hand,
wrong bettors have to lay odds, and collect at less
than even money. Thus wrong bettors are forced to
put out more money on the layout than they will receive
back if they win, which doesn't appeal to the majority
Many players like to have continuous bets going on
every roll of the dice, by betting either come or
the place numbers, so that they will collect on every
roll of the dice. Don't bettors, if they bet don't
come or lay against the numbers, won't collect on
every bet-they'll have to wait for the 7 to show before
collecting. This is another important reason why most
players like to bet with the dice.
A number of players wait for one hot roll, where the
dice continually come up with come and point numbers,
so that they win every bet they have out on the layout
over and over again, compounding their wins at the
same time by pressing or doubling their bets as the
roll goes on. A right bettor can win a fortune with
one continuous shoot while a wrong bettor makes money
over the long run, with smaller wins.
Finally, most players think they are optimists when
betting with the dice. They don't want to bet against
dice and become pessimists, though there is no logic
to that reasoning. And among right bettors a camaraderie
develops, since all of them are rooting for the dice
to pass, and all are pulling together in an enforced
form of togetherness.
biggest mistake players make is to pigeonhole themselves
as a player of a certain limit and game, "I'm
a 5/10 hold'em player," they'll think of themselves.
And they'll play 5/10 hold'em, even though the 3/6
hold'em game right next to them is a much better game.
They'll never realize it because they'll never even
Simply put, a lot of players putting a lot of money
in the pot makes for a good game. If there aren't
a lot of players playing each hand in your game, and
players aren't often calling raises cold in order
to play, then you probably should be walking around
the room to see if you can find a better game than
the one you're in.
