Hedge Hog System Good for a cold to choppy table
Basic Gist: Bet the Dont Pass Line with odds AND 2 place bets.
Maximum Loss about $22, you wont lose much with this method
This is a variation of a Don't Pass "HEDGE"
system You start with a $10 don't pass bet.
If the shooter sevens out at this point you will lose your $12 place bets. You have already collected $7 from the first hit and will collect $10 from your don't bet for a profit of $5.
The second time your place bet hits you place the 5 and the third time it hits you place the 9. From this point on you "HOG" any profits from your place bets.
Any time a shooter makes his point you ride out all the existing place bets. Do not place any more numbers or make another Don't bet on this shooter.
If the shooter throws a 7 or 11 on the come out, pass on this shooter. If you lose on three shooters in a row you find another table or quit.
Lets look at what can happen with this system:
IF THE SHOOTER SEVENS OUT:
Before the first hit you loose your $12 place bets but collect the $10 Don't bet for a loss of $2.
After the first hit you are plus $5.
After the second hit you are plus $7. ($7 from the first hit, $2 from the second hit and $10 for the don't bet minus the $12 place bet)
After the third hit your are plus $9. ($7 plus $2 plus $2 and $10 for the don't bet minus the $12 place bet)
IF THE SHOOTER MAKES HIS POINT:
Before the first hit, you are minus $10.
After one hit you are minus $3. (You collected $7 from your place bet but lost $10 don't bet)
After second hit you are minus $1. (You collected $7 plus $2 minus your $10 don't bet)
After third your are plus $1. (You collected $7 plus $2 plus $2 minus your $10 don't bet)
REMEMBER: You still have your place bets and will ride them out, taking any profit.
WORST CASE SCENARIO:
The shooter makes his point right away then Sevens out immediately after establishing his next point.
You are MINUS $22. By quitting after three loses in a row, you can try this with a minimum bankroll of $75 dollars.
A more aggressive (and dangerous) Hedge System: The Inside hedge system
$225 is the minimum bankroll. You begin this system just before a come out roll. You put down $75 somewhere in front of your friendly base dealer and request;"$51 no 4(or 10, your choice) and $12 each place 6 and 8. If the dealer asks if the 6 and 8 work, tell him no.
