    Anyone in Vegas have a craps table that I could practice on before hitting the casino? I'd be willing to rent a table for a couple of hours if anyone was interested.

    There is one guy, that carries one around in his car. I'm sure he'd be willing to swing by, if you asked him. Think it's "Harley" or something close to that, ask Super Rick, he'd know. :)

    The Dice Coach ( www.dicecoach.com ) has an interesting approach to practice at a vacant $25 table for virtually nothing !

    $25 pass line - $25 Don't pass line - $1 Midnight ONLY on the Come-Out roll -

    The ONLY NUMBER which can hurt you is a 12 on the Come-Out !

    The $1 on the 12 is a hedge against this occurrence -

    Otherwise EVERYTHING ELSE is a PUSH !


    THIS technique can be employed on ANY vacant - or - lightly populated table - of ANY MIN - ANY and EVERY where !

    If your gonna play this way, you might want to, bet say, a hardway for the dealers, lest you might wind up with the stick upside your head. :)

    I seriously doubt that you will be beaten by the stick -

    THEY are hanging around looking at each other and - IN MY OPINION - would relish a little change of pace and excitement -

    ALSO, THEY do NOT know WHAT YOU are UP TO with this style of wagering !


    Reminiscent of when I " LAY ACROSS " for $30 / $60 " each box number -

    Had a dealer one time remark - " The ONLY way you can WIN is to throw a SEVEN " -

    NO SHIT , SHERLOCK -

    What the fuck do you think I am trying to accomplish here !

    Lose ONE - WIN SIX -

    Then go to Plan " B " on the Lose ONE !

    I have been assaulted by the stick, with the stick, on numerous occasions. It is my goal second only to winning, when I buy in. You guys need to learn to play with some "spirit". The other players at the table, always cheer for me when I'm exchanging blows with one of the dealers, and sometimes throw me some tips, if I inflict major damage. :D

    WOW -

    YOU must have attended ONE or MORE of the GTC's Seminars ! :eek:

    ALL of the players that we were / are associated with have NOTHING but RESPECT for the dealers and crew -

    Do ATTEMPT to do OTHERWISE - courts sure disaster !

    And a $1 bet - does go a long, long way !

    Trust ME -


    Matter of fact I can recall an incident in AC where the stick was fucking with me - he was " fishing " with the stick -

    When I called over the box person to complain about this dude's " antics " - he was subtly " advised " to " cease and desist " his BS !

    Craps75,
    If you have a facebook account, look up some craps forums through facebook.
    There are a few members who live in Vegas and could help you with that question.

    You will find them at the tables -

    SR1 / 2 - OR SL1 / 2 -

    They have a unique style of tossing -

    Almost like a ballet dancer -

    Reminiscent of " Tiny Tim " doing his " Tip-toe thru the Tulips " gig ! -

    They usually last 3, 4 or 5 rolls -

    Then 7-out -

    Look at the expression on their faces when they Double Pitch and 7-out -

    It is FUCKING PRICELESS !

    Like TOTAL dis-belief that THAT happened to ME - a GTC alumni ! :eek:

    I agree with Snake. Go to a table you intend to play on and play a do/don't for your practice. Only thing I'd do different is I wouldn't make the midnight hedge bet.

    An added plus is if you like the table you're practicing on, you're ready to rumble.
