HOW WOULD YOU PLAY THIS HAND?

Setting and influencing the dice roll is just part of the picture. To beat the dice you have to know how to bet the dice. Whether you call it a "system," a "strategy," or just a way to play - this is the place to discuss it.

HOW WOULD YOU PLAY THIS HAND?

Post by kumar » Wed Apr 28, 2021 5:57 am

It is 5 am last Saturday at the Beau Rivage.Mo has pulled another all nighter.I have had a full night's sleep and arrived at the table at 4.30 am.The first 8 shooters bomb out without making a point or rolling more than 7 numbers.Shooter no 9 gets the dice.Mo turns to me and says this random shooter has bombed out the whole night and cost the table a lot of money.I say hey,this is America,he has the right to shoot,most other countries we could have slapped a restraining order.Even though this shooter was on the other side of the table he sensed our dismay and promptly proceeded to roll this hand.

Using your betting strategies how would you have played this hand?There is no right or wrong answer,just a fun excercise.

Wish i could have stayed one more day to see this hand. I didnt see anything nearly this good my sessions at the Beau. With the way it started i would probably be late to the party. Hopefully, i would catch on that it was turning into a hand and got some money down. probably dependent on whether i was up or down. There is a good chance i would loose a lay on the 10 on the comeout after the first hard 10.

FYI, I moved this from the Trip Reports forum to the Betting Strategies one.

This is a tough one. All those sevens and random throws. But he makes his 6 and his 10 then comes out with 10. Probably a 6 , 8 and 9 minimum bet and simply go same bet. I wouldn't screw with the ATS. I'd bring everything down,knowing me, after 11 and 3 show. The reason I wouldn't play the 10 is that it's been hit many times and I count tens and 4s. If I was walking up to the table and this hand was being thrown, I'd stay out.

I would definitely be late to this party, mainly because of the past performance of this shooter and that initial come out sequence (I presume this person was not a DI and trying to toss all that crap to start the hand). I would definitely not have been on the ATS for this shooter.

I probably would not have even tiptoed into that hand until somewhere around the first 4 or 10. I'd place just the 6 to start. Collect the hit on it shortly after. I might chase the 9 and 10 after he starts throwing them again. Same with the 8.

This would not be a big money maker hand for me in this instance, not knowing the shooter and especially after their past performance.
