More on the 5-Count

4 August 2005

Hi, Frank,

The 5-Count method that you use and recommend is great. It makes a lot of sense. My question is, what if the thrower makes his point in count 2, 3, or 4, before actually acquiring or reaching a count of 5? Do you start another count or does that mean the thrower is hot and you start betting?

I'm scheduled to go to Las Vegas on August 14. I have never played craps in my life. But I understand it is one of the games that one has a chance of winning if one is prepared.

I would appreciate any tips you might recommend. I plan to bet the pass line with odds and place bets on the 6 and 8.

Thanks, Frank, and I hope to hear soon from you soon.

Sincerely, Fidel V., Jr

Dear Fidel:

The 5-Count will eliminate 57 percent of all random rolls, so it's a great method for stretching your time at the tables without added risk. If the shooter makes his point, it does not change the 5-Count process. The only thing it does is allow a 7 to be counted as well.

For example, the shooter is on the come-out roll and rolls a 4; that's the 1-Count. Now he rolls an 11 (the 2-count). Now he hits his point by rolling a 4. That is the 3-Count. Since his next roll is a come-out, even a 7 (or any other number) will count as the 4-Count. Once he has made it to the 5-Count, you can put up your odds or make your place bets.

All the best in and out of the casinos!
