Field bets with hardway set (6-5)

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.

Field bets with hardway set (6-5)

Post by LetsPlayCraps » Tue Jul 06, 2021 1:00 pm

Over the 4 day weekend, I decided to play with an idea I had.

On the come-out roll I like using the 6/5 hardway set then change the set accordingly.
6s on top
5s facing me

But this time, I just maintain this hardway set no matter what.

Then I place a 1 unit bet on the Field and continue using this set even after the point is set.

Once I hit 2 in a row, I reset back to 1 unit.
Even if a 12 or 2 is hit which doubles the win, it still remains until 2 hits in a row.

Actually had interesting results this weekend. Yeah, yeah, yeah, short term test results don't mean anything, blah blah blah.

Since I was playing at home, when a 7 hit, i didn't have to pass the dice which did help with having good results.
In a casino, I would have to pass the dice causing this to be a short lived strategy unless I happened along an empty table.

This set seems to favor these outside numbers pretty well.

Curious to know if anyone else thought about this type of strategy or did there own long term testing with something like this.

6-5 6-5 is a straight 6's set, not HW.

For me, the field is not part of my betting strategy, so I can't say that I've tried something like this. With that S6 set you're using though, 6's and 8's are only a single pitch away on axis, so that could make a field based strategy turn ugly quickly.

I would suggest you get the bone tracker app and throw many hands and then see which set will give you
your field numbers. It's a process to really get your personal set if that's what you want to do. I use a set
that produces fields but only use this type of play when everything else is not working or I just want to
get some quick bucks and not lay out a mass of money across.
