    No ... You've got it wrong it again. When someone wants me to lose my money. I don't like his smell (not even a little bit) I take it personal when someone wants me to lose. I wish that person would leave the table. I don't want him playing on my end.
    We're not on the same team.

    The easiest way to explain everything is to say "It's all random" You can't argue that.
    But it's a cheap shot. It would be my guess that Alan Shank, with his intellect, could look deeper and find how human interaction affects the game.

    What if there are 3 others on "your end" of the table playing don't? Then, don't you smell? Don't players are different than pass players....I play don't more often than pass and I express no desire for anyone to lose their money. I want to win, that's all. You simply want others to lose who aren't playing the way you like. Hypocritical, to say the least.

    No ... here is the difference. I'm betting most everybody on the table will win and be happy and go home with more money than what they came with.

    Don't players don't consider anyone but themselves. The only thing that will satisfy a don't player is... If I lose. I don't like the way he plays because I don't like the way he thinks..

    Don't players are alright. .Just as long as they're not playing on my table. Don't crowd in and stink up a good party.

    Funniest thing about this game, IMO, is that OFTENTIMES the do's and the donts lose. And OFTENTIMES the do's and the donts win.

    I usually play the donts, and I certainly don't want to see anybody lose. There's no upside for me.

    Seriously?! I can prove I know something you do not. I know that the vig on buy bets is based on the bet, not on the potential win as you claimed. I can only hope that you admitted this error later on, but I will not see it.

    Skulker Luis de Midnight......I pointed this out in post #17 but his response in post #19 made no sense to me. I thought others would pick up on it but you were the only one.

    How do you distinguish the "others"?

    Then what is your play?

    You're right and I was wrong. I just can't figure out when I could have jumped the tracks. I don't play that bet and pay little attention to it. It's an old man losing his marbles maybe. But you were right.

    You were the only one who spotted my goof. You were right. I was wrong. I just can't figure out how long ago I got started getting it wrong. Somehow I got it in my head ... but no excuses ... I was wrong.

    Likely no big deal...but when you have previously uttered " I know more about this game than anyone on this forum"....it takes on special meaning.

    You know .... I want to retract that statement. Let's forget I said that. What a bold and stupid thing to say.
    In it's place however I want to make a declaration.
    Here's what I think about me:
    I know more about this game and how to win money playing it than anyone else in North America.

    See, what a stand up guy.
    Name change could be in order: Craps School Charmer.
    Mistakes are for learning, although me thinks that last statement may also due for a retraction.
    But who cares. We're all full of ourselves and lovin' life.

    As a somewhat astute observer of this recent forum phenomena, this aspect rings true:
    "One in clarity is more powerful than thousands in ambiguity." Comeback Kid. ​

    I can only reply on the casino in Pittsburgh (and the one in Washington, PA - the Meadows.)

    I would say people are more superstitious at The Meadows rather than at The Rivers. Of course, there are more older players at The Meadows, The Rivers is more of a younger generation crowd.

    However, I'm only 48 years old - and while dice flying off the table don't bother me, there are two things that do. # 1 is someone throwing money on the table in the midst of a game. Wait until either the point is rolled or the 7 shows. At the very least - wait until there is a lull in the game (like after the bets are paid off, but slightly before the dice are moving to the player). It's just RUDE to do otherwise.

    #2 - if there is a big lull in the game - a player arguing with the crew on a payout, or the casino chip box coming to the table to count the chips. The lull in play just seems to change the energy - not only of the players, but the shooter as well.

    I have no qualms about calling off my bets or even taking them down due to the above. Doing so "locks in" the profit I've just made on that roll. Sure, I could miss out on a few more wins, but just as easily I could lose my stacks that are left on the table.

    I'm with you, $nake! Now if we could only bring goatcabin and the other primitives on board! They persist in their foolishness that craps is a game of pure luck--and with a negative ev at that! You just cant expect to WIN with that 'tude...

    I too eagerly await crapsschoolmarm's next pearls of wisdom...like many here, I'm sure, my ultimate goal is to be able to carry his jock strap atta craps table...tom p

    Cmon man ... it's a metaphor ...I can see I pushed some buttons. You get the Bob Cat cornered ... you're going to get scratched. But that's OK I'm not mad at you anymore.
