    He's simply taking someone else's roll data and trying to apply it to what he would HAVE done (past tense)....if he actually played craps.

    This play works well in Mesa where they deal in Monopoly money and practice chips and re-roll 7 outs to their hearts content. It doesn't work on the real table for him...because he doesn't play on the real table.

    He likes to take credit for what others actually do. So to speak he's a
    Johnny-come-lately, or in his case Jimmy-come-lately.

    Some do....
    James dreams.....

    Boy you are a hoot , you think if you say James
    doesn't play and say it often enough times ,
    people will believe it yep you are a hoot alright,
    You go thru a pathetic tirade about James not playing
    then top it off with
    "SOME DO JAMES DREAMS"
    the angrier you get the sillier your posts
    You are a guy who has posted many times that you are
    a nickle , dime bubble craps player , playing 3 or 4 times a week
    on a one dollar machine , you are probably hustling
    free drinks and buffet comps , I have a very
    strong suspicious that you are a comp mooch
    trying to save on your grocery bill

    Actually you claim you play the bubble ,
    I'm not sure you actually do you are on here
    most of the time tapping on your computer

    Maybe you don't even play the bubble
    I know you take pictures of the machine after
    everybody leaves.
    Yep I don't think you even play the bubble
    I think you are a "SHUTTER BUG"
    wandering around the casinos living vicariously
    thru other peoples craps play
    Yep TDVegas doesn't play , he just takes pictures.
    If you were playing the bubble you don't play often enough
    or make large enough bets to warrant pedling that
    bicycle all the way down to the casino .
    Sorry, you aren't playing . WINK , WINK

    I do apply it to what I would do in such a case when
    it again presents itself , these things are valuable learning
    tools if you just use them correctly
    Many people echo the old cliche that dice don't
    have a memory , among the silliest crap I have heard
    but occasionally a roll will come along that will be very
    close to one that has happened before , if you
    have experienced a good one in the past , take advantage
    of it . They say there is nothing new under the sun.
    Pay attention and learn

    Hindsight is 20 20 as they say. Its quite easy to come up with a win after you know what the rolls were. And it is not my comprehension its your ability to convey your thoughts. You started this off by quoting my post in your message when you should have quoted tdv.
    Right there in that quote you are saying that tdv has said that about a normal person would have won 10000.

    You are 100% correct, the data I placed the other day means nothing to you, nor
    will it ever...

    Now if you were a tennis player and you knew that over-all you do much better depending
    on the percentage of first serves you get in play....You found that your winning percentage
    jumps when you get 70% or more of your first serves in. ONe racket seems to get you
    55%, a second racket seems to get you 60% and a third you average 70% or higher.

    Now you would have to be rather stupid to use the first two rackets...…

    Craps is just as easy, no one in their right minds would want to end their shots in
    a hw, v6 h6 array more than 34% of the time if they could help it.

    Just because something is way over your head does not me it is not valuable to the people
    that understand it.

    I did not say TDV said anything I said he posts
    a PICTURE that shows that a normal person
    with any understanding at all of the game should
    have cashed out over $10,000.
    Show me in that post where I said that TDVegas said anything
    My point was what the picture shows as opposed
    to what you randies indicate with your constant
    , "DOOM & GLOOM" statements
    "AIN"T NOBODY EVER GONNA WIN" , BS
    Read it again , I didn't say TDV said anything
    I said he posted a picture and what the picture would indicate.

    You are just wanting to argue
    there is no way in the world you can be that dense
    Now before you get all spun around , I am not
    saying you are dumb , I am actually saying
    you are TOO SMART to keep on with your
    assertions

    No "normal person" is waiting on a triple hardway parlay...let alone a quadruple without pulling gains off the table.

    This is real gambling, James. Not the stuff imagined on the practice table in Mesa.

    You have a do have a point there
    however we are not concerned with being normal
    For us being AVERAGE is not good enough we aspire to be
    WINNERS and winners are normally far above the norm
    Winners are people who have the courage to
    GO FOR THE WIN.
    Standing around a craps table cashing $7 wins
    is a waste of time and a sure recipe for disaster
    That floats your boat but does nothing
    for a person who plays to win . To the winner
    playing to break even or not to lose is just recreation
    and best left to the piddlers

    TDV and JH both have logical arguments.

    Pepsi or Coca Cola, anyone? One is too sweet, the other works for ME. Toss in Royal Cola and things get complicated.

    There are Players that play a 'Tight Game' and some who 'Go for the Long Shots'. Or... go the Royal Cola route and mix it up.

    I have no clue why having two or more choices at the Craps Table in game plans is bad for one, and good for another. It is a win/win.

    Video Poker is a good example. I always go for the the Long Shot when playing. When you are risking 25 cents or 90 cents... to win $180 on a Royal Flush... go for it.

    I enjoy putting some chips on a Long Shot wager on Craps Table's that offer them. Some consider them 'Sucker Bets'. In that case, you should quit playing at a Craps Table. They all end up being Sucker Bets for many.

    Hard Ways backed with Easy Ways... a hedge, with promising returns.

    Read into some of these Posts and cut them up into parts and pieces. There is NO risk watching a Craps Game. Although, when playing, the higher HA long shots pay handsome returns.

    If you are adverse to Risk. Play Video Poker.

    There is no right or wrong. If you want to play higher house edge bets...you will need a higher level of variance to win. If you want to play a lower house edge strategy you will need a smaller level of variance.

    The only asinine statement is that someone utilizing one or the other is playing the “wrong way”.

    This is Barney,

    I know nothing about the craps but the LID has told me that hedging your bets in craps is the best way to reduce variance which means personage will minimize the amount won or loss. It's very bad way to play for those who wants to win big monies. However, the LID has been doing the Hardway hedge the last few months because he is hitting the hardest sixs and eights. This means he says one thing but does another.

    I had to reinstall my Barney Suppercomputer app, and after considerable searching of security videos, finally found this image of a few of the babes camped out in the rodeo Cowboy’s front yard.

    I see your reading comprehension hasn’t improved any Hardley. Apparently sleeping under the stars isn’t agreeing with your synapses?

    Nope , not correct , you say that as often and as loud
    as you want , saying it won't make it true.
    You have been playing for years and you have said
    numerous times no one can win ,
    the only conclusion for playing that long and
    still not having a game that can win ,
    the game must be wrong , change the game.
    or there are other options .
    You got that right dude , that's where DI comes in ,
    increase the variance , "DERANDOMIZE" the dice,
    roll more numbers.
    Again , you have played for years and have said
    yourself many times , no one can win ,
    Some people do win , they are playing the right game.
    Those constantly losing for years must be
    playing some other game . I like to call it the wrong game .
    you call it whatever you like.

    After going back and forth reading these comments. I've finally realized this forum rarely has any useful advice on the game of craps. But sucumbed to it as mostly being a comedy show.

    The best way to keep cash in your wallet is to not play the game.

    Although this doesn't say much for the networks,. some of this shit is better than what is on TV
