    Justin one of our team dice players threw 28 straight box numbers the other day and 31 out of the total hand of 33 were box numbers. In Windsor you can sponsor a shooter to shoot for you, so I sponsored Justin when the dice came to me. He rolled a 25 hand with 16 straight box numbers. Great display of shooting.

    That is correct..pass the dice to somebody to shoot for you and then it goes back to the next person in the rotation.

    I have never seen nor even heard of that option before...but then I have never played outside the US. Just another thing for the crew to keep track of, though decent ones seem to be able to do that with ease.

    I was once SO at a table -- forgot where and when -- with the shooter two positions to my right. He sevened out after only a few rolls and the dice went to the next shooter, putting me "on deck". Those two guys obviously knew each other and before the comeout roll switched places, making the previous shooter the next shooter. "We have a traveler," I remarked to the base dealer, indicating with a head movement the guy who had moved.

    The dealer at first gave me a puzzled look, then answered, "Oh, I see what you mean," and enlightened the stickman. The shooter had a decent hand during which the dealers rotated. The new stickman was informed during the changeover and when the hand ended the dice were passed directly to me. The traveler unconvincingly feigned indignation at being "skipped" but raised no other fuss.

    Craps would be an easy game to beat the hell out of if we knew something like this in advance.

    As long as you can count up to 28 o_O, take in $600, place/buy across, pay attention to max allowed on each of the numbers and get there as quickly as possible, and take care with your count up to 28 rolls.

    Now, before the next roll, say either three or four words to your dealer. Note: These words are not Wie geht es Ihnen?

    Drücken Sie, bis ich nicht mehr kann. Lol.

    This is how people get caught in the press to the moon scam. Some people tell stories about all the 20 plus hands they have and fail to mention the short hands and PSO's.

    If you play all day you should see or have at least a couple 20+ hands per day on average. Some days you may not have any and the next day you may have a dozen. That's just the nature of the game.....................

    Es tut mir leid, so anal zu sein, aber meinen nicht Sie "Erhöhen Sie Ihre Wetten, bis Sie kann nicht erhöhen ihnen mehr."? Sie drücken einer Taste; Sie erhöhen eine Wette. (Was sagen Sie, "von duck"?)

    I fought German for three years in college but somehow have retained enough of it to be able to read and write the language with the help of Google Translate. IIRC you once posted you were fluent in German so I was soliciting a grade from you on my attempt to communicate in that language. In particular I was hoping you could supply the proper translation for "press" as applied to a bet since it falls into the category of jargon which I am not at all suprised Google apparently does not understand.

    Being of some German decent, I can field the "press" question. The answer would be ( upin beton).

    Ah yes. I now remember one of my German teachers noting there were different dialects of the language, one of them being something like "middle high low" being the one he would be teaching. You no doubt hail from the same region as a warehouse foreman at one of my old company's sites. He asked me what the German word for "brassiere" was; I responded "der Büstenhalter". He said he thought it was "Stoppenfumfloppin".
