I have never stated that such knowledge will result in wins at the craps table, and have even reported from time to time that I have had poor results with this knowledge.

I have always believed and continue to believe the game to be random. A few years ago, when first exposed to some Linaway postings, I began to study what he wrote and saw what he stated about dice to be true. With curiosity but not with the hope of learning a secret, I purchased his material, since there is nothing more important about the game we play than the dice.

More than anything else, what the material shows me is that all conceptions about the game based on the table of 36 are grossly incomplete. This does NOT mean that secrets about the dice and mathematics are left to be found. It simply means there are 576 possible dice outcomes, not 36.

This information shows me that topics such as "on-axis shooting" and "primary face hits" are a crock of shit. Note that these terms do exist, but they are of no significance as presented by DI groups, because the numbers they use to calculate them are not based in the reality of the dice.

TTs head is healing well, Dr. Duck, has things under control. He is also in the process of growing a new "set".

It takes a little time to understand all the material that Linaway
has. but when you get it, much of what you see makes a little more
sense.

What I got from Linaway was pay attention at the table, the game is
not nearly as random as some people try to tell you. the tables you
play on have tells (shown by the dice) just like poker players and when you learn to look for
them you will make more money with less risk.
