Should I Use the 5-Count on Myself?

2 August 2009

By Frank Scoblete


I recently started using the 5-Count against other shooters. My question is: Do I use it when I'm shooting? I do understand that I need to place a Pass Line bet, but other than that, would you recommend using the 5-Count on myself? I am not a random roller, I consider my self a great roller, and I do practice about 10 hours a week tossing the dice.

Thank you,
G. A.

Dear G.A.:

If you are a great roller then you can go right up on yourself. If you find your roll is a little off, then you can use the 5-Count on yourself too. It is a personal decision.

The 5-Count will eliminate about 57 percent of all random rolls and position you to take advantage of your own rolls. Bet lower, much lower, on the random rollers than you do on yourself.
