(I should have bet again as the next number was also odd) but I lost my nerve!
Assume you would push and press for more up as you win and in the same time regress, then maybe you would not lose your nerve.
For example, betting 1 unit, then on a winning push to 2 units. Next, you bet 1.5 unit and pocket 1.5 unit and assume you win you bet 3 units.
Assume you win again, then you have 4.5 units in front of you and pocket 2 units and place 2.5 units next.
As you can see after each double win you pocket some winnings without risking your own money to push and press for more.
This I see on youtube with a craps video betting the field and the positive progression solutions come from the famous Dice Doctor.
