    hartzehn22, you said you are shooting from approximately 8' away, I assume that meant from the BW? If that is correct, you are shooting from the far end of SR1, or the front of SR2. Here is a suggestion. As you know the arm rest and chip rail are approximately 11" wide, if not more, and is offset from. the body of the table, this interferes with the body's natural arm movement. You can build a shooting station made of 3/4" furniture plywood which will provide the same effect as a craps table.Total cost less than $50, or you can buy one assembled for $360 plus shipping, or buy a craps table pick a number and add 3 zeros. You receiving station is made of the same 3/4" furniture plywood, or maybe solid wool. The covering is fine and has a underlayment, but you may want to double the thickness of the floor. That would give you 2.25" of thickness.

    I personally don't know anyone who got rich from playing tennis, but I do know a lot of people who play tennis.

    You do not play table craps 3-4 times a week. You may visit the casino(s) 3 or 4 times a week. A big difference.

    How do we know, maybe you are just staying off line to watch some TV. You have to prove you went there, if not you are a liar. Gee TD, does that sound familiar. LOL

    The bottom line isn't how often one plays, it how much money you took off, or left on the table.

    the main problem with dice influencing, is the name designation itself.

    heres the thing.

    anyone who claims to be a dice influencer, needs no credentials, no certificates to prove they have attained something out of the ordinary.
    They set 2 3/s on top, grip the dice in a particular way, and boom, they call themselves dice influencers.
    there is no proof of talent.

    and once again, not living near casinos where they can play at least once a week to make enough money to live handsomely, plus, anyone who has a day job, is not a talented di. No way.

    if something is worth putting tons of hours of practice into, its certainly worthy of doing it for a living, IF THEY CAN, but no one can. Noone makes enough money to support themselves by shooting dice.
    Ok, maybe there is one person on earth, maybe even 2, a stretch, maybe 3 on this planet.
    any degenerate gambler claiming hes living off his craps play, has a wife or SO that is supporting his habit.

    Pressit,

    In the video, I purposely did not show my body position but I am basically simulating the exact position I would encounter at the SR1 position and I'm 8 + feet from the back wall of the shooting rig. You can't see my body except for my hand in the video as I prefer to remain anonymous. You can't see it but I do have an arm rest with padding and chip rack. The set up is just like what you would have on a real table. This came with the practice rig. The table height from which I'm shooting the dice as well as the landing rig, are at a typical regulation height one would experience at the casino.

    TT123- I agree, NOTHING compares to practicing on a real table. I brought my practice rig out a couple of weeks ago after having been in storage for years. Early on I realized that you have to practice/play in the casino and that the home simulation is just that - a simulation but nothing like the real thing!

    You sound very convincing, but that is just speculation on your part. You can't prove anything you just wrote. That is like when a politician proclaims we are going to tax the rich, but never define "RICH". Then those who never thought of themselves as rich, learn to late they are rich...well rich in the eyes of the politician.

    Anyone with a brain can make money, especially if they are going to the casino multiple times a week. The reasons most people don't make money playing craps are many, but a few that come to mind. 1. They don't bet enough on themselves, they don't weed out the losers. 2. They don't know how to let their profit rides, and/or to cut their loses short. Buy in for $1k, run it down to zero, or buy in for $1k and walk when it gets down to $700. 3. Apparently they never operated a profitable business. You can not learn from your mistakes if you continue to make the same mistakes.

    Yeah, nothing beats a "live Session/s. Lets you know exactly how you stand. After Seven Years i am finally beating my home table in 36 roll increments. Dont know why(two cubes dont weigh much), but it appears that its easier for ME to do well in 36 roll increments.

    I have absolutely no idea if this will transition over to "live" play, but i will SOON see. I'm assuming that the lesser the rolls(at least for me), the better chance one haves in getting lucky, & skewing probability.

    As TDVegas says, maybe its just 36 roll short term positive Variance. If that is the case, its been going on for the last two months. Very curios to see how this plays out at the Casino.

    Wont cost me much to find out because my strategy for 2016 is a Passline Bet Only. Odds on the Passline Bet will be according to how the hand is, or is NOT developing.

    Tired of jumping off the cliff with those, Inside, Even, & Across Betting Styles. One stinking bet, & DONE......... KOKOMO style!

    There is no holy grail, but if you can refrain from going on tilt, you preserve your bankroll to fight another day. Coming from an "Action" background, its VERY hard for me to maintain Discipline. I get a little greedy, & start wanting to choke the shit out of the money.

    You know..... Wanting to have it ALL. The greed factor. Having a nice profit, & thinking the sevens never gonna show. Had a 52 roll hand my last outing, & under bet the friggin hand, because i was so far in the friggin hole.

    Had i NOT been gun shy, & in the hole, I'd have made $10,000 off of the hand. Why? Because i'm a very wreckless & dangerous bettor when things are going my way(when i have a nice profit in the rack). Should have put a REAL hurting on the Casino that particular hand, BUT I DIDN'T! My life story!

    Builders convention in town. 2 hour wait at Canonita. Cold night, raw and rainy. I can always provide back up to my claims if required. It's your decision to choose to believe...or not.

    I do play 3-4 times a week. What would satisfy your doubt that I can provide...? Sometimes I'm in a resort to eat at the restaurants, watch a game in the sports book. Other times to play. 3-4 times a week is about right. Sometimes 4-5.

    so, if one has a brain, and goes into a casino a few times a week, most likely youre saying they are going to make money.
    do you have a career besides DI craps play?
    do you spend your hours as a surgeon? postman? police officer? IT engineer? something else?

    Nice pics, but that is all they are, just pics. Means NADA. As you so often will say, "Doesn't prove a thing". And in this case, it doesn't.

    Truth is you are not at the Venetian to play table craps. Bubble Craps? Maybe, but there is that big convention in LV. Night time brings out the massive crowds. I suspect you are a part time employee.

    I have been playing craps since 1979. I make good money playing craps. Hasn't always been that way, but it is now. I learned how to stop hitting my thumb with the hammer. Some of you see the casinos as a social, entertaining outing, an extended family, I don't see it that way at all, I am at war with them, they are the enemy. My opponent is larger and stronger, so I have to play smarter, be more creative/selective than they want me to. A lot of my time is spent watching other players when they have the dice. To be perfectly honest with you, when I am at the table I am looking for a hartzehn22. I'll bet with hartzehn22.

    You once said you once operated a profitable business? Why wouldn't anyone structure their craps play in the same manner? If one plays multiple times a week and isn't making even $100 profit, they are doing something terribly wrong? How many bad financial decision can one afford to keep making before the money runs out? I just don't understand that type of thinking.

    TT you and I share a common fate, our local casino isn't exactly local, in my case it is almost a 4 hr drive. So once you are there, you are there. Was there the other day, funny thing for being a holiday, the casino was empty, except for the craps tables which were packed. Arrived just short of 11, found a space on the middle back table at SL2. Keep forgetting those table don't act well to high tosses, so I lowered my shot to just chip rail height and that seemed to work for a while. The dealers are nice, polite, but are slow paying and clearing chips.12 people at the table, 2 old farts at TE didn't shoot, but won about $10k each, only 2 shooters other than myself I bet on, but a lot of crap numbers. 2 hrs later I colored up. I did ok, not great. Went ton get a bite to eat as I didn't eat before I left for the casino. Now it is roughly 2:30 - 3, what I going to do, to cold outside, so I see this poker machine. What really caught my attention was this poker machine was misplaced, it was all by itself. A quarter machine, bet 5 quarters, first spin up pops 4 8's, 250 quarters.Thank you, goodbye. Found a few other machines which treated kindly, until I played some $1 machine, just didn't want to give up any $$$, and took a good portion of my slot winnings. Then I went to the only Bubble Craps they have. Put $200 into it, watched it go below $100, got it back up to $120 walked away. Not liking the Bubble. Called home. spoke to the wife. Now it is about 5 and the craps tables are even more crowed than they were before. Walked around finally a guy is leaving said you want my spot. Noticed he was carrying any chips. Sure thank you very much. I buy in for $120, my slots winnings, started betting $30 6 & 8. Just to much of this senseless chit chatting with the dealers, nobody is paying attention, slows the game down to a crawl. 6:30, time take down my bets, $60, place a $5 HW 6 & 8 for the talkative dealers, must be out of my mind. Collect my $50. It was a profitable day. Arr home 11:15.

    if you think comparing a successful business to gambling on a craps table is the same, or similar, theres no reason to continue posting responses.

    speaking only for myself, I enjoy the social interactions and aura casino/hotels/resorts offer.
    I don't go to a craps table to socialize.
    Gambling and socializing are 2 completely different things.
    It just so happens craps tables are in casinos.

    youre reasoning that anyone not making 100 dollar profit playing a few times a week, is so far fetched, bordering on ridiculous.

    everyone wins at the tables when there is no one else around to verify their story. its the same old stuff.
    Casinos are built for people who think the exact same way as you, figuring ofcourse theres a way of smart play that can win me something each week, just have to be patient.
    and if youre not playing poker, the casino invites this attitude.loves it actually.

    I am assuming you were playing at Cherokee? What a shit hole Cherokee has turned out to be. $15 minimum tables, & they are starting to Sardine the patrons on only three tables.

    Never seen dice throw so many crap numbers, but in hindsight, maybe the Field bet aint such a bad bet at Cherokee. You see a lot of Horn bettors, also. Cant say that i blame them.

    Yes, Pressit, we are totally screwed in the Gaming Department. Its either hopping on a plane to Tunica, or a six hour drive. Definitely worth the bother, since you have seven Casinos to play at. Also, the luxury of $3 tables(Crapless) at Roadhouse, & a Slew of $5 tables at the other Casinos.

    Even though its advisable, its a strain staying away from home three days at a time to play Tunica. Counter Productive to NOT stay for at least three days.

    My last Tunica visit only netted me $13, but heh......its certainly better than losing. Was up a substantial amount, & decided to go for the choke hold on my day of departure.

    Suffice to say that I was the one being choked. Had around a $2,000 profit, & got too darn greedy.

    I'm sure that you are very familiar with a few Greed stories yourself, huh? Lol
