# Ask Frank (Doey-Don't System of Betting )

27 June 2003

Dear Frank:

First let me say I have purchased three of your books (all on craps) and it looks like I will have to buy them again because friends have borrowed and "lost" them.

You write well and clearly, making your books informative and enjoyable to read.

I have pretty much always played the Pass and Come with full odds. Your 5-Count system allows me to detect a slight non-randomness of some dice rollers with very simple rules. (I used to work with mathematicians who dealt with chaos theory pertaining to commodity fluctuations. There seems to be a strong correlation with your system and theirs. And their rules took a very large computer to calculate.)

My question is about your doey-don't system of betting. I am uncomfortable making negative bets.

I like to play the Radical Super System on a table with x10 odds. However I don't like to make negative bets. I figure that for the normal bets, my buy in is 1.4%. With the standard Come/NoCome is 2.78% of two bets or 5.6%.

I figure with extra bankroll I can stand the fluctuations of not making the negative bet.

Does this make sense?

My daughter is turning 21 this summer and my wife and I are taking her to Las Vegas. She is a sweet-looking young lady. She is interested to see if she can make some money being a "DV" (dice virgin). She figures with all the casinos she should get lucky somewhere :-)

Thank again,
Dave

Dear Dave,

The doey-don't does have a higher house edge than just the straight Pass or Come route. Against random rollers, the better bet is definitely the traditional Pass and Come. However, the Captain likes to use the doey-don't because he feels it gives him a better chance to be on a hot roller, a percentage of whom will be rhythmic rollers. The power of a Pass or Come bet is the 7 on the initial placement of the bet. If a shooter is diminishing the appearance of the 7, then the Pass and Come lose their power and other forms of betting might be superior.

If you play with your daughter at the tables, make sure you are the first to shout out loudly, "Here's a bet for the shooter!" That will stimulate others to do the same.

All the best in and out of the casinos!
