    I thought I would post this style that the Mad Professor offered on his forum years back, hey hey.

    " What are you doing when you Retire ? "

    He writes: " Would you be happy with a $50.00 session win, no more or less, each and every time you played ? "
    He states if you played 1,000 sessions a year..... it would add up to a decent income.

    Vegas local retired craps players are doing just that. They are using a craps-grind system and they are adding to their monthly incomes by dipping into the casino money-stream using a low-cost craps progression.

    MP's low-cost craps progression uses a 9-step system : 10-10-10-20-20-40-40-80-80.

    The rules :

    Bet........................ $10
    If that loses.... bet $10
    It it also loses, bet $20
    If it also loses, keep going up the scale.
    If at anytime you WIN a bet, you parley the winning bet. If it wins, you start the progression over.

    The secret to winning using this system is to determine if the table is hot or cold. This DP system needs a cold table.

    I filter all of MP’s systems through the eyes of di. On certain tables we have a possibility of changing the odds of success. On all other tables and random shooters you revert to house advantage, never a good place to be.

    Grinding the don'ts at dices table is just another for m of anti-streaks play. And if ya subscribe to the Barstow theory of diminishing probabilities then it make sense. I recently test an anti-streak style at the baccarats and it show a nice return after 6000+ tested shoe, hey hey.

    Always looking for a lower cost way to park my ass away from the craps table. What progression do you recommend for baccarat?

    Well, if ya got the balls, bankroll, and a joint that offer a nice fat spread between min/max bets then I would go with star as written. It ain't for the faint of heart or light of wallet but grindin the don'ts with star is pretty much the sure thing, hey hey.

    No I got a great progression for craps, thank you, but baccarat is my question. Do they allow on a $25 table, a bet for player at $25 and a bet for banker at $40? Effectively making it a $15 table? What progression do you use for the banker bet and how do you offset the commission?

    My local don't allow offsets bets on banks and player simultaneous. And again I would use star or a variant if ya got the spread to run it. And as far as vig ya just increase yer base units bets if the net ain't enough for ya, hey hey.

    Think D’ Alembert is a bit safer. On that fourth $1 bet, win, parlay, win, what’s next? First $1?
