[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

If the payout for a Don’t Pass Odds bet equals the amount of the Flat bet, then the Odds bet is bridged. The part of your Odds bet that’s the same as the Flat bet is put literally next to the Flat bet. Then, the remainder of the Odds bet is placed on top "bridging" them. As an example, suppose you place a five dollar Do not Pass bet and the player throws a point of eight. Being aware of the true odds for the 8 are 6:5 (i.e., 6 ways to make a seven, and five ways to roll an eight), you then lay six dollars in Odds with the hope of acquiring 5 dollars. In this example, if you win the $6 Odds wager, you earn $5, which absolutely equals the amt. you earn with your $5 Flat bet. Therefore, since your Flat bet and Odds wager aquire the same amt. (five dollars each), you bridge your 6 dollars Odds wager by making a 5 dollar chip exactly beside to your five dollar Flat bet, and then putting the one dollar chip so it bridges the 2 5 dollar chips.

If the payout for a Do not Pass Odds wager does not equal the amt. of the Flat bet, then the Odds wager is heeled. This alludes to the fact that you position the first chip of your Odds wager chip stack exactly beside to your Flat wager. Then, place all remaining Odds wager chips on that single chip but to the side and leaning on that first chip (your Odds wager chip stack is tilted due to the fact that it is leaning on the first chip).

Confused? That’s fine, don’t get alarmed. The dealer is always willing to assist if you forget. After a few times, it all makes perfect sense. It will not take too long before you are a master. If you’re not certain what to do the initial instance you try it, simply tell the croupier, "I would like to place some Odds but I don’t know if it really should be bridged or heeled." The dealer asks, "How much do you want to place?" Suppose you say, "$15 to win 10." The dealer asks you to place your chips on the table (croupiers aren’t permitted to collect anything, above all chips, directly from a competitor), and then the dealer correctly heels or bridges them based on the amount of your Flat bet. You will quickly get the hang of it. Just do not be hesitant to ask the dealer questions. His/Her job is just to deal, but also to be friendly and assist the competitors.
