    I place the 5-6-8. ($17 on a $5 table).

    I collect the first 2 hits. (I now have $14).
    I place the 9 with the next hit. (I now have $16).
    I press one unit on each win.
    In some cases if I feel like there is a hot shooter, I may press two units or skip a level. (On the 6/8 I usually skip 48 and go right to 60 from 42, depends on how I feel).
    My goal is to pay for my bets, then start to press and make some money.

    The highest press was the $6 to $180 when I was at the Golden Gate in Feb. I hit, I collected the money and didn't press again. The 7 came next.

    Typically
    $30- 6 & 8 They both have to hit twice.
    Then $60, $90, $120, $180, $300. Then I start getting nervous. I’ve had one or the other up to $600 a couple times but haven’t hit those yet.

    I usually place the 4,6,8, and 10. I'll have all the hardways bet and if they hit, I press the soft numbers.

    $12 on 6 and/or 8. First two hits collect then press 30 to 50% after that. After 3 presses collect then keep on pressing. On the 4 and 10 I do a full press buying at $40. That why you are still collecting and doubling your bet. $10 press to $20 collect $8. And so on. 5 and 9 take 1 st hit then press 50%

    My usual strategy at a $10 table: $10 pass line, single odds. Place $12 on 6 and 8. Once shooter has won back these bets, place 5 and 9 and start pressing 1 unit on all place bets with a win. Will go to double odds but don’t have a set strategy on that I also place $1 hard ways on even points for me and the dealers. I parlay the hardways on the first win and then go $10, $25, $50, etc as it hits. I’ve had the hardways up to $100 a couple of times And the place bets up to $120.
