Discover How to Play Craps – Pointers and Schemes

If the pay out for a Don’t Pass Odds bet equals the amt. of the Flat wager, then the Odds bet is bridged. The part of your Odds wager that’s equal to the Flat bet is arranged exactly beside to the Flat bet. Then, the remainder of the Odds bet is put on top "bridging" them. e.g., consider you make a $5 Don’t Pass wager and the shooter tosses a point of eight. Being aware of the true odds for the eight are six:five (i.e., six ways to make a seven, and 5 ways to make an eight), you then lay six dollars in Odds with the hope of acquiring 5 dollars. In this instance, if you win the $6 Odds wager, you earn 5 dollars, which absolutely equals the amt. you win with your $5 Flat wager. Therefore, since your Flat bet and Odds wager aquire the same amount (five dollars each), you bridge your 6 dollars Odds wager by putting a five dollar chip directly beside to your 5 dollar Flat bet, and then laying the one dollar chip so it bridges the two $5 chips.

If the payoff for a Don’t Pass Odds bet doesn’t equal the amount of the Flat wager, then the Odds bet is heeled. This means you place the first chip of your Odds bet chip stack directly next to your Flat bet. Then, position all remaining Odds bet chips on that single chip but offset and leaning on that bottom chip (your Odds wager chip stack is crooked because it’s angled on the bottom chip).

Perturbed? That is fine, do not get alarmed. The dealer is always ready to help if you don’t remember. After a few instances, it all makes sense. It will not take long before you’re a master. If you’re not certain what to do the first instance you attempt it, simply inform the dealer, "I would like to put some Odds but I do not comprehend if it should be bridged or heeled." The dealer asks, "How much do you wish to put?" Let’s say you indicate, "15 dollars to win ten." The croupier will request that you drop your chips on the table (dealers aren’t allowed to accept anything, above all chips, right from a competitor), and then he properly heels or bridges them based on the amt. of your Flat wager. You’ll quickly get the hang of it. Just don’t be scared to ask the croupier queries. His/Her job is just to deal, but also to be courteous and help the players.
