If the payout for a Don’t Pass Odds wager is the same as the amount of the Flat wager, then the Odds bet is bridged. The part of your Odds bet that is the same as the Flat wager is fixed right beside to the Flat bet. Then, the rest of the Odds bet is put on top "bridging" them. For example, let’s say you put a $5 Do not Pass bet and the hurler rolls a point of eight. Being aware of the true odds for the 8 are six:five (for example., 6 ways to make a seven, and 5 ways to make an eight), you then lay $6 in Odds with the expectation of winning 5 dollars. In this example, if you win the 6 dollars Odds wager, you earn five dollars, which clearly equals the amt. you earn with your $5 Flat wager. Therefore, since your Flat wager and Odds bet earn the same amount (five dollars each), you bridge your $6 Odds wager by making a $5 chip immediately beside to your $5 Flat bet, and then laying the $1 chip so it bridges the 2 5 dollar chips.

If the payout for a Don’t Pass Odds wager doesn’t equal the amount of the Flat wager, then the Odds wager is heeled. This means you place the first chip of your Odds wager chip stack exactly next to your Flat wager. Then, position all remaining Odds bet chips on that individual chip but to the side and leaning on that first chip (your Odds bet chip stack is crooked due to the fact that it is angled on the bottom chip).

Flustered? That is fine, don’t get alarmed. The croupier is always willing to help if you don’t remember. After a couple of instances, it all makes sense. It won’t take too long before you’re an expert. If you are not sure what to do the initial time you attempt it, basically tell the croupier, "I want to lay some Odds but I don’t comprehend if it really should be bridged or heeled." The croupier asks, "How much do you want to lay?" Let’s assume you say, "15 dollars to win ten." The croupier will request that you place your chips on the table (croupiers aren’t permitted to accept anything, especially chips, right from a competitor), and then he properly heels or bridges them based on the amt. of your Flat bet. You will quickly get the feel of it. Just don’t be hesitant to ask the dealer queries. Her job is just to deal, but also to be courteous and help the gamblers.
