Now to understand Craps and Craps Rules and play the game one has to know a bit about the odds. With 2 dice the minimum score is 2 and the maximum score is 12 agen judi domino qq terpercaya . However one is more likely to throw a 6,7 or 8 than throw a 2, 3, 11 or 12.

What? I hear you as but consider: There is only combination of dice that enable you to get a 2: throwing two 1s and it is the same with 12. In order to score 12 both sixes must be up. Therefore the odds against throwing a 2 or a 12 are 1/36 or 3.6%, the odds of throwing a 3 or 11 are thus 1&2 or 2&1 thus 2/36 = 7.2%

But 7 on the other hand has greater odds as there are 6 combinations to make 7: 1&6,2&5,3&4, 4&3,5&2,6&1. Therefore 7 is the most likely number to be thrown. 6/36 or 16.7%

The next thing to remember, although it is counter intuitive, is that there is no progression of chances. If there has been 3 throws of the 7 coming up, there is no variation in the chances that the next number will be any different. There is still a 16.7% chance that the next throw will be a 7.

The third thing to remember that with craps everything is played as a round. Each shooter has to throw the dice until they get a 7. Your bet may stay on the table for the entire round.

So let us consider the first round. The bet with the best odds is always the Passline bet. This is the bet that the shooter will either make a 7 (16.7%) or an 11 (7.2%) but will not throw a 2 (3.6%) 3 (7.2%) or 12 (3.6%). If the shooter throws a 7 or 11 you win and are paid out even money, If 2,3 or 11 are thrown then you lose.

Now if a 4 5 6 8 9 or 10 are thrown then your bet is still alive. The number thrown is called a point. The shooter continues to throw until either the point number is thrown again or a 7 comes up. If the point number is thrown again then you win if the 7 comes up first you lose.

There is a possibility of betting against the shooter by betting on Don’t Pass. Which means that if the first roll is a 2 or 3 you win and if it is a 7 or 11 you lose. The 12 is declare a tie and the win or lose situation depends on the next roll.

During the point throws a player may bet on a number coming up. This is always valid for one throw only and the odds paid vary according to the chances. Casinos claim no house advantage in these bets.

Previously I’ve written about tournament end games, and about how the best defense can be a good offense. In the “good offense” article, I wrote about an event during the Russian Revolution where a band of 125 anarchist cavalry soldiers were surrounded by twenty times as many communist opponents. The 125 attacked and routed their enemy.

Let’s examine that a little closer. Suppose you were one of the anarchists. You would know that the communists were completely treacherous, brutal and untrustable. So what would you do? Surrender sheepishly? Simply fall on your sword and die? Not much life expectancy in those choices.

The most sensible course of action would be to attack, and fight ferociously for your life. Your chances of winning, and surviving, would be small, but they would be greater than zero. Even one in a million is better than zero in a million.

In this way, being one of the 125 attacking anarchists would be pretty easy. You just have to fight with everything you have, with no illusions about your dim hopes. You might die, but taking some of the people wanting to kill you with you would have some appeal in itself.

But now put yourself in the shoes of a communist soldier. As one of 2500 men surrounding a force 1/20th the size of your own, you’d have to feel pretty good. But now imagine those 125 doomed anarchists charging straight at you!! All of sudden you don’t feel so secure. One hundred twenty-five desperate men willing to do anything, no matter how brutal, to try and survive are now hurling themselves directly at you. You may think that your group of 2500 will still prevail, but do you want to be one of the 80 or 120 or 350 of your group that dies in the battle to kill the 125?
