    A great time at the casino last night, as soon as I got there, I ran into an old friend, hadn't seen each other in a couple years. We spent an hour or so at the bar getting caught up, then I played a little craps while she went back to the BJ table.

    The table was a bit crowded, but I managed to get a spot next to the base dealer, one of my favorite spots, usually taken up by a darkside player. I won a small amount pretty quick, but couldn't get my mind into the game.....kept thinking about my friend. :)

    Tipped the dealers a little bit, then cashed in and went looking for my friend............................

    Two nights in a row where craps took a back seat to "better" things! :)

    Sounds like the leg is healing well, and your lucky streak continues!

    Wise decision to keep in shape, OAP! Old TableTop has replaced his Craps Practice with Health Club Activity! I hit the gym 4-5 days a week with Weight Lifting & jog 2-3 miles a day on the treadmill! I am
    Currently doing a little interval training on the tread Mill, & i feel G-R-E-A-T! Not to mention that this "Fit" lifestyle has been helping my tossing Accuracy, Too! My confidence level is "Sky High" right now! Hopefully this new found confidence is not the precursor to a "Nut Clipping" episode in the Casinos! Lol

    Leg is doing great, back to full normal activity, final check up the first part of September, and if all is well, off to another adventure!

    Yep, I'm "lucky", at least I feel lucky, nothing to do with craps necessarily, but have been lucky there recently also. :)

    That's great TT! I have always been a bit of a fitness nut, going to the gym, hiking, biking and trying to eat healthy. The leg thing slowed me down for a few months, but almost back to full activity now.

    Good job, keep at it!

    The only exercise I get is my right arm tossing them bones. I usually am sore the next day with so many tosses just like a starting pitcher. Another sports analogy.

    PSUhard8 and I were talking through the PM, and learned that we were on opposite ends of the same table at the same time yesterday.

    He PM'ed me that he might be going in yesterday at 3:30, about 15 min after I had already left for the Rivers.

    He asked me if I was straight out wearing scrubs, and indeed I was. He was directly across from me, but neither he nor I knew it until afterwards.

    He mentioned the girl next to me having a good roll - we both made some bucks on her. She was pounding the eights, which I actually placed for 12 and hit at $60 before seven out.

    Had one nice roll myself, which I am not sure if he was there for. Made two sixes and a nine and finally had the progression going but lost a 50/100 trying for another six.

    Was down for most of the play but managed to squeak out a small winner.

    We'll get together and introduce ourselves next time PSU.

    Left for the Rivers at 5:45 and back at home by 7:45. About an hour round trip drive, so no more than an hour at play.

    Went pretty well, and was able to get out a couple of bigger bets for the first time in a while.

    Had pretty good results on the Pass line, hitting a number of naturals into parlayed winners. No 2 in a row naturals, but hit 2 of 3 parlays when the point came back.

    When ahead by about $80, hit a 10/60 nine, then a 20/120 eight, but then seven out at 25/200, to end up ahead by $120.

    Only played through 7 or 8 shooters, who alternated between making a point or two and damned near PSO. My shoot was one of the bad ones, but then again, I don't practice much.

    Rather bigger than smaller, but both are much better than losing. As they say, a win, is a win, is a win.

    Play yesterday was pretty bad. Other than 3 consecutive come winners one time and 2 another, don't think I had another 2 winners, other than a couple of naturals.

    Nothing I tried worked. For once I went in with an open mind about placing, but did not hit a place more than once. I'm guessing I lost 8 or 10 of them. When the pass or come would lose 3 or so in a row, would go out on the DC with a slightly bigger bet since I wasn't going to lay odds. Not even a single winner playing that way, and was usually playing it at least two in a row after the losers the other way.

    Played for about 2 hours, lost damn near every bet placed, but still was "smart" enough to head home with the tail between my legs still with half of the buy-in.

    Other than a smallish win last week, things have been bad lately. I seemed to do much better during the month or two I didn't play. :confused:

    Maybe one more try at it before we head out Vegas in a few weeks, but this shit is getting old and boring.

    Went into the Rivers yesterday since with the plans at Nemacolin (which went to hell) I was not working on Monday.

    I have got to laugh at the pitiful results. I simply could NOT pick a winning bet, and this lasted for over an hour. When I was sitting on a single place or buy, it NEVER hit, but yet the shooter would make one, two or sometimes 3 or 4 passes before seven out. You would think this is not possible, but it happened. When I went out on the pass, did see one or two natural winners, but in both cases, the parlay went down to a seven out. Finally did get one winning place bet at this table, collected $21, but seven out before a 2nd hit for a whopping win of $3.

    At a second table, made a decent comeback, mostly come betting, but never got back to even and went home down a couple of hundred. Other than a quickie last Thurs, I am forgetting what it is like to have a nice win.

    We are both vertical and enjoying life to the fullest
    Trips to Vegas and other spots ,families,friends,no lectures from me, but in my opinion we are way ahead, craps is nothing more then a distraction and as long as we keep our heads and not buy into all the bullshit offered up in places like craps boards we are doing great
