Why Play The Don't?



Hey Chump, are you still playing the pass line? When are you going to wise up? Look at the dice combinations chart below.

There are five ways to make a 6 or an 8 point number.
Divide five into 36 total combinations, you get 7.2 to 1 odds
against making these numbers. 6/1 odds against making a 7.
Does that not scare you?

Look at numbers 5 and 9. There are four ways to make them.
Divide 36 by 4, you get 9 to 1 odds against you.
Getting a little worried yet?

How about the 4 and 10? There are three ways to make them.
36 divided by 3 equals 12 to 1 odds against you.

(Remember there are six ways to make a 7.)
You are feeling a little nauseated now, are you not?
If not I want some of what you are drinking!

Go into any casino, look at the craps table,
notice the house has almost all of the chips.
They are playing the don't, no matter what you hear.

If you play the don't, you can't crap out.
Wise up, already!

Do The Don't!

What is Crap Check?

Gambling, in the case of this book, is going to be limited to craps,
hence the name "Crap Check." I will not attempt to get into all the
variations of craps because you, like myself, have probably
bought every book, every tape, read everything; and talked
to all the would-be experts around the craps table.

You probably know more than you need or want to know about the game.

I am going to limit this book to playing the don't, doing the don't.
I don't believe it pays to play the pass line as I have not been
able to win any money doing so.

I think that if you play the don't that you have a chance of winning
some money. You will never get rich at it because you have only a
50/50 chance of winning even if you know everything about the game.
Therefore, the casino, having more money than you, will ultimately win.

What is Crap Check? What does doing the don't mean?
Basically it is very simple. The craps numbers are 2, 3 and 12.
If a pass line player rolls one of those numbers they lose;
conversely, if a don't player has a bet down, he or she will win.

The exception is 12 which would be a push - neither winning or losing. A pass line player rolls the dice and will ultimately get a point number, which is any other number than the craps numbers,
plus 11 and 7 of course.

A player who is doing the don't is doing exactly the opposite of the
pass line player. He will be betting on the don't pass line and the
don't come box which is shown on the layout of the craps table.

His goal is to see 7 come before the point number is rolled.
He wishes for 7 to come and cause him to win.
Remember 7 ends all games.

The don't pass line player is doing the don't, he is going to win when
7 comes up, assuming it comes up before the point number is rolled.

The pass line player will make his bet on the pass line which is
plainly printed on the table in front of him.

When the point is established he can place some odds on that number.

The don't come player places his bet on the don't pass line
and then he can lay some odds.

At the beginning of the game before the dice are even rolled pass line
players can throw in a chip, a $1.00 or more, on the horn. This is to
win in the event that a 2, 3or 12 comes up.

The horn bet is the insurance that the pass line player takes out
to avoid crapping out.

Taking insurance is done by placing the horn bet, but in Crap Check,
and playing the don't you don't have to worry about the problems
of the pass line player anymore.

The don't player has checked and covered himself against
the crap numbers hurting him.

The crap numbers, except 12, pay the don't come player.

This book is the only definitive book on
playing the don't - or doing the don't as I call it.
I have not found any book or tape devoted to just playing the don't.
