Hey everyone, I will be in Vegas March 4-11, and want to try playing Craps for the first time. I read the Wizard of Odds website, and the simple (awesome) instructions that BenJammin put together years ago. I used to walk past the table, look at all the different betting options, give myself a headache thinking about it, and finally walk away more confused than when I started. I think I have figured out how to play the pass/odds and come bets, and think that is about all I need to know to start, but have a few questions. Is taking the casino's class a good idea? I have a bankroll of about $1200 a day, if I want to get about 4 hours of play out of that, what level can I bet at (I understand variance can affect the answer greatly)? Is there a SIMPLE strategy to use to maximize my bets (emphasis on simple)? How do I place bets to tip the dealers or is it better to tip directly? Which bets do I place, and which ones does the dealer place for me? I probably will stay away from the dark side, and betting any hardways. Are there any other basic things I need to know? Thanks for your help.
