I have to memorize a very specific set of payouts for the place bets. Teach said this took her 3 days to do when she was memorizing it and if possible she wants me (us) to have it memorized by Monday.
I'm fairly confident that when I show up on Monday I will have this memorized and I'm even more confident that I will be the only one who does.
Today she showed us the bets and went through the payouts and gave her reasoning why she wanted us to memorize it - all perfectly logical stuff and if we can just "know" them then it's 100% easy for us to know pretty much any payout that we will be faced with by doing simple math.
When I say simple math I mean simple.
$1 place bet on the 6 or 8 pays (without rounding) $1.16
This is a bet we need to have memorized. Why? it's simple - If we can recite this off the top of our head then we already know the payout for a $10 bet ($11.60) and a $100 bet ($116).
The other bets all have similar reasons for being memorized.
So, tomorrow before work I will give it a whirl - tomorrow after work I will hammer it multiple times reciting as many bets as possible and then working on memorizing the ones that I'm struggling with. Hopefully before going to bed tomorrow I will be able to accomplish an entire round correctly (no matter how long it takes me to do it).
Then Sunday I will repeat this routine - One before work - hammer it after work and recite it before going to sleep.
Monday - wake up and recite it. Go to class and mess it up completely because now someone is watching and judging me lol.
So, without further ado - the pictures I took of the board set up ......
The order to memorize is this.
Starting with the Ten and working Towards the Four - Starting on the Lower Outside corner.
Then when finishing the Lower Four - loop around to the top and work towards the Ten.
The last pic is extra bets to have memorized for the 6 and 8 - (up to a $60 bet).
Easy fucking peasy right? Right??
