The Secrets of Cold Tables
The Secrets of Cold Tables
Pssst...! Wanna know a secret?
How about the secret of profiting from cold tables?
It's not hard to find a cold table. Just look for quiet tables with lots of empty spaces and somber looking people with just a few chips in front of them. You can also look for a lot of don't bets. It's hard to make money on the don't side, but it can be done.
Wanna know the secret that craps pros use to make money on cold tables?
Let's find out!
When you've found the best cold table in the casino, wait until a seven is rolled and bet $30 Don't-Pass. After your point is established, bet $10 on the 5, $12 on the 6 and 8, and $5 on the field. It doesn't matter if any of these numbers are the point.
You will now win on almost any number, while you wait patiently for the seven to show. As soon as the 6, 8, or 5 wins, take them down. This way you maximize your winnings as you wait for the shooter to seven out. You will only lose if the point number shows, and hopefully by then, your loses will have been covered.
On a very short roll, you will win. If the point is a six for example, and the shooter rolls a eight and a seven, you win $14 for the eight and $30 for the Don't-Pass. Total win $44. You lose your 5, 6, and two $5 field bets for a total of $32, so you're ahead by $12.
You'll also win on long rolls too. For example, say 6 is still the point and the next rolls are 4, 5, 10, 8, 3, and 7. You'll win $5 on the four (field), $5 on the five ($10 - $5 field), $5 on the ten (field), $9 on the 8 ($14-$5 field), $5 on the 3 (field), and $25 on the 7 ($30 - $5 field) , for a total win of $54. You'll lose $12 on the seven out (from the six), so your net win is $42.
Now, look what happens when the point is made. The same six is the point again, and the rolls are almost the same, 4, 5, 10, 8, 3, and, this time, a six. You win $5 on the 4, $5 on the 5 ($10 - $5), $5 on the 10 ( $5 field), $9 on the 8 ($14 - $5 field), $5 on the 3 (field), for a total win of $29. You'll lose $18 on the six (don't-pass $30 - $12), so you still have a net win of $11!
Give this method a try the next time you're at a cold table!
