Do you have a system for taking down bets or resetting bets?

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.

Do you have a system for taking down bets or resetting bets?

Even when starting with just $15-$18 on the inside numbers ($66 total), progressing ones bet that $66 can increase to > 5 X or more of the original amount.
When the 7 eventually comes out, its tough to see all that cash get collected by the dealers.

Playing at home, my wife would take down all her bets after the 18th roll.
Sometimes she is a genius as the 7 appears a roll or two later, but other times she misses out when the roll continues on.

Do you have a system to either collect/take down all the money or even just take it down to the original bets?

The idea of missing something when a roll continues is after the fact thinking, isn't it? You take your bets down and you have money now, in the present. The future is not predictable. If you get that itch..that sense..that the roll has gone on long enough..you really have nothing to lose and everything to gain. The seven has to show up. It may show up a hundred rolls after you bring yourself down..or it could be the next roll. The one thing I see over and over again is people leaving huge money on the table. For some reason they think the seven will never show. I usually bring my bets down when I feel I'm losing focus or I get a sense that the throw is edging towards nothing good. I have to leave my PL up and I usually keep the odds and play for that number. If I hit it..I'm revitalized.

These thoughts are right on the mark...
The key is to develop a philosophy, then a betting system and bank roll to support it.
Lately I have been watching Craps Hawaii. The guy is a master in getting money off the table in short hands..
Heavy is a master in getting big bets working for you..

I have been using both philosophies...a short game combined with a long game.
Either way, I am never concerned with how much I have left on the table since I have made far more than that in the process. The chips left out there are just my little minions that have been working and bringing more chips back to my side of the table.

My "motto" is "if a bet isn't paying it's rent it gets evicted." Simple enough. There's a mathematical number that equates to how often any number should roll. I bet the Six and Eight in pairs. I should see a Six or and Eight once in every 3.5 rolls. Call it 4 rolls. If I don't see one of them roll in 4 rolls I start to question whether or not I should have bet them - especially if the outside numbers are rolling. If one of them rolls but not the other then the counter is on for the non-producing number. I need to see it roll within 7 - 8 rolls or the eviction notice is about to go out. It's not paying it's rent.

The Five and Nine are bet separately - not in pairs. I bet them when they come to the party - not up front. I bet even numbers or Six and Eight only primarily. But if the Five and Nine start showing up at the cook out with their paper plates in hand I'll give them a rack of ribs. They should show up statistically one roll in nine. I need to see them showing up more often than that - like one in 6 or more. And like I said, I only bet the one that's showing. If I'm on the 9 because It's showed twice in four rolls and it hits again - great. But if it goes 7 plus rolls without showing I'm thinking about putting that money to work on a number that's paying me now.

The Four and Ten ARE bet in pairs because they pay 2 to 1. Get paid on one of them and both are paid for. That means if you see either one roll or a combo of the two roll twice in six rolls you bet them (if you're not already on them). But if you go 8 - 9 rolls without seeing them . . . well, you get the idea.
