HAZARD.                            33
That the caster does not throw crabs :
When the caster throws a main, which is 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9, per Table, he is then to throw his chance, which must be either 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10; should he neither nick or crab it, he is then to abide by the chance, and if he throws that chance before the main, he wins all the money set; but if he throws the main before the chance, then he loses all.
Thus if the main be 7, and each person stake a guinea, the gain of the setter is about 31/2 per guinea.
