How much do you buy in with at a $5 table? How about a $10 table? Not trying to get too personal with finances here! So maybe "what percent of your gambling money would you buy into one game with?" is a better way to phrase that if you don't want to talk about dollar amounts. The reason I ask is because I think I buy in with too little, which is causing me to lose at craps:evillaugh. What I buy in with doesn't allow me to play long enough to have a shot at winning, unless I'm lucky with the first shooter. When I first started playing craps two years ago, I had beginners luck big time, so I got away with buying in with $40 and turning it into $300. Not so much anymore. If I come to a $5 table with $50-60, bet the pass line and 6/8, and the 1st and 2nd shooters 7 out fairly quickly.....well then my $50-$60 won't get me very far. I think I need to start coming to a table with a couple hundred, so that I can can make it through the first couple 7's. Otherwise, I just have to hope the first couple throws of the dice are very good to me! I guess my hesistation is that if I lose $200 at one craps table...well that's a pretty good chunk of my gambling money for the trip. I usually budget about $1k for gambling (for Craps, Slots, and maybe a little roulette) for a 5 day trip.
