    We went thru this at six voters…It's easy to deduce who voted for the place bet over the comebet and it is most of the DIs and one mostly contrary person on the forum. The nine voters are: James Hall, LID, Snakeyes, VD, Pressit, Barney, Supperick, Supperdave, and Max Planck.

    It would almost certainly be one of those people. I think somebody should report this. :)

    The one major problem I have the come bet is the fact that u do not get to choose what number u want to bet on. I know many perps do not want the 4 or 10 as one of their bets, and this is no reflection on guys/woman that can make the 4 or 10. For me, I would rather have another number even though the payoff is somewhat better on the 4/10 for the money risked. Just sayin.

    Is there a better spam filter available from XenForo or a TPV? Or perhaps an add-on that allows you to quarantine posts from new members in a single folder so you can easily delete?

    And you needn't either, I've had it in remission for years.:) I notice though that you DID associate it with TDV, and rightfully so. :D. Zing!!!

    My game has changed so that when I'm down I leave with any remaining chips in my pocket.

    Now when I return to a game in progress I'm in the position to feel the table out by playing the COME...

    ...without disrupting the flow of the game with a buy in. I like that move btw.

    While I place bet wayyyyy more often than COME I just didn't agree that the COME sucks...like many other center table bets imo.

    unlike all the di shooters who choose to hide in the closet, I never had a problem shooting dice with any member of this board.
    and have...many, many times.
    and my play is usually the same.
    koko joe has seen me play only come bets, and win, on more than one session,
    hdgamblin has seen me only come bet and win nicely, only once
    basic777 saw me lose with place betting and the next time I played I stuck with come betting and walked away up a little, nothing to write home about.
    superrick played the bubble with me, shortly, we both didn't do well, but using the come bet it pulled me thru and I walked away with a 75 or 80 dollar win with my 300 buy in.
    I don't recall the posters name, someone introduced to me here from our friends in Toledo, played the bubble with come betting, walked away with a few dollars, nothing big
    I cant win big every time I play, I play with real money, not on my home computer

    the only person I regret not having a winning session with was leftyaj, twice, and both times we both lost around the same amount since our betting styles are very, very similar. Him being a DI, me not. no one made any money the days we played. no one on the table, either way betting, do or donts, it was just two of those type of days.

    I also played in AC years ago with imaplaya and dicesetter whom I don't see posting here anymore, but they had 4-5 dice setters with them, a group, and I asked them what to expect, and I placed bet what they told me, and I lost 400 bucks,

    so Im not raking in enough money to support my travel habits, but I do enjoy plenty of wins, and I don't make excuses why others cant witness my brilliant play, unlike di shooters who say Im negative energy around them....a joke if I ever heard one.

    and I will continue with my come betting, do I care what someone here thinks about my bets? not at all, its served me well for 40 years, well, at least most of those 40 years, I did spend some time with placing 6 and 8s, 60 each, pressing 30 each every other hit.
    I did ok with that also, but wasn't feeling it as much as come betting, although now and then if Im at a table I will place a 6 and 8 here and there.

    live and die with come bets, and so far, Im doing ok, figuring a lot better than most craps players, lucky I guess, smart play, smart money management, and most of all, know when to walk away and call it a trip.

    shit, I left out I played with td vegs at redrock once, didn't do well, but its only 2 times odds, not my cup of tea.did I lose? don't recall, maybe I didn't lose, but won only 25 bucks or something? play the bubble s much as I do I never remember anymore unless I take a picture of the tickets.
    and I believe I lost last year at sunset when I played with him, not sure how much, but I do recall I went a bit more in at sunset because I had a nice win the night before he came over, so I gambled a bit more than I normally would.

    if I played with anyone else here and forgot, Im sorry, it all blends in over the years.
    I actually saw another member here playing in caesars one afternoon, but the table was ice cold, I never played, just observed.
    I will not mention names, but he was involved with di players.

    Give me a heads up when you travel to the Midwest to visit your friends. We can shoot dice at Blue Chip, which is @80 miles away or Four Winds (New Buffalo, MI), which is @20 minutes from Blue Chip. Smoke-free options if you drive to Illinois: Des Plaines (Rivers Casino, near O'Hare International Airport), Aurora (Hollywood Casino), Elgin (Grand Victoria), or Joliet (Harrah's, Hollywood Casino). Rivers & Grand Victoria have 100x odds (as does Horseshoe in Hammond, IN).

    that would be great, Ill get to show of my di skills to you.
    we liked 4 winds in new buffalo, rustic if I remember, huge casino, wed stay there for sure. Nothing wrong with blue chip, just a small selection of food places.
    if we go to Michigan again(my wife is dying to go visit her quilting friends in Michigan), Id opt for firekeepers in battlecreek, we loved the place. might be the best casino employees weve ever encountered in any casino in any state.

    So there you have it, Liman is a "hard core" come bettor. Putting this new information into the mix, I might mention, that there is still time to change your vote. Let's see which way it goes. :)

    Sounds good. I'm happy to make money off any good rolls. Four Winds is very nice. According to one of my wife's co-workers, that casino offers really good comps, at least to slot players. It's just too far for me to make it worthwhile to visit on a regular basis, especially when Rivers Casino is 25 minutes away.
