Strategy #8

 The 5 count

 Basic Gist:  It's "The Captain's" System, popularized by Frank Scoblete. 

The 5-Count, the Captain's method for finding hot shooters and reducing a player's overall risk at the craps table, starts with a point number (the "point numbers" are 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10) and ends with a point number. Let's take it step by step.

The shooter has just received the dice and is on his come-out roll. If he rolls any of the point numbers above on his come-out roll, that constitutes the 1-count. If he rolls a 2, 3, 7, 11, or 12 on the come-out, the count has not started yet.

The second roll after the 1-count is automatically the 2-count, regardless of what number is rolled, and this applies to the 3-count and 4-count as well.

The next roll after the 4-count is the 5-Count only if the number rolled is again one of the point numbers above. If not, it is the 4-count and holding until the 5-Count is achieved. When the 5-Count is achieved, you then begin to place money at risk.
