I'm simply stating a fact of gambling from life craps
is a game where, in order to make money, a player
has to get a lot of cash down on the layout, even
before he makes one winning collection. If he doesn't
do this, he won't be playing the games correctly,
and he'll be severely restricting his chances of maximizing

How Much should A Player lose at one table?
The answer to this question is rather simple. You
should never lose more than the single-session bankroll
you have brought to the table, and this amount should
never be more than one seventh to one-tenth of your
total bankroll for gambling purposes.
If you've lost your single-session bankroll, you should
leave the table and not dig into your pockets for
more cash. If you follow this rule consistently you'll
be smarter than 95 percent of the gamblers at the
craps tables. Bad cycles and streaks do occur, and

Get away from the table. Get a cool drink or go back
to your room, take a walk and refresh yourself. Do

and come bets with double odds, it will cost you about

more money will have to come out of your pocket to
finish the next cycle.

is important for both winners and losers, but it's
astounding how many players decide to start keeping
records only after they have a three-or four- session
win streak, so they can gleefully talk about their
"four big bets per hour average. A couple of
big losses follow and not only does the player stop
talking about his average, he often stops keeping
records. Players want positive reinforcement, but
they need reality.
Before you decide that you should play two games at
once because you have an established track record
of winning one big bet an hour or more, you should
log enough hours at your level of choice to have reliable
statistical data, not short-term "of course this
rate will keep up" data.
