After a 6 hr drive to Reno during a snow storm in Dec Dapostman lost $175. Stayed at the Sands way to long. But since that trip he's up about a grand playing in Tahoe & Vegas.

Here's my game that I have figured is best suited for my bankroll:
Bet pass line preferably at the casino royale in Vegas where they offer $3 craps and 20x odds. I will play the $5 tables with 3x4x5x also. I do not like the $10 tables so I don't bet the passline but will place the 6 or 8 on these tables.

After making my pass line wager and taking odds I also bet either the 6 or 8 for $12. If the point is a 4, 5, or 6 I place the 8. If the point is 8, 9 or 10 I place the 6. I like having a shot at the point or the placed bet on every roll. If I make a small profit at a table($60-$80) I usually cash out and then go next door. I have found if I stay in one place too long I end up giving it back. Many small victories add up nicely and in vegas or tahoe it's easy to go next door and play.

Sounds like Dapostman planned well & done good. Props for coming up with a pretty sound money management plan -- especially the part about walking away when you're ahead.

Good choice on the Casino Royale, too. It's one of those little overlooked gaming/craps-friendly gems that gets lost in the glitter of the Strip. I remember when they had a "beginners" craps table for 50 cents. It's one of the few Strip casinos the locals are willing to wager their hard-earned money at -- usually around 2 or 3 a.m. in the morning as I remember.

Casino Roayle is also home to another great game - BlackJack Switch. You play two hands of BlackJack and have the option of switching your 2nd cards.

Downsides are that if the Dealer gets 22, it's a push - - but, otherwise, a pretty interesting game.

Don't play games you can't win or don't understand. Dropping money on roulette is just like burning money.
