I know the basics of craps and have done well in the past but have trouble with the math so I am hoping for some help If bet on all the place bets at $5 each ($6 for 6 and 8) how many times do I have to press the bets until I get up to the max of $1000. If I do a hard press how much faster will that happen? When I first started doing it this way (thanks to another poster) I was confused as I was saying I wanted to press my bet but they were still giving me chips. I was really getting confused when the shooter rolled a 4 or a 10. I figure I am putting out either $26 or $27 out to begin with and if I get onto a table with a good shooter I think I can do really well.
