The Pass Line should be the first bet you learn in Craps. Learning the Pass Line teaches the flow of the game. You learn how a Point is made and how the table wins and loses. When you put money on the Pass Line you are betting with the Shooter. You, the Shooter, and everyone else at the table on the Pass Line win and lose together. The Pass Line is a Contract Bet so after a Point is established, you cannot pick it up. Even if you come down on the Pass Line after a Point has been made, it becomes a contract bet.
