    although I will admit, while playing with some people Ive said, that was my angelina shot. And they looked at me like I was nuts, I explain, it was a thing of beauty. my angelina shot(as in angelina jolie, past, not so much present. always had a crush on her)

    The answer to that is yes, that is what i call it and for me there is a
    reason for that.....You have no interest in how i play so there is
    no point into going into the shot itself. I got the basic idea from another
    guy even though i don't think he ever developed a shot with it. . IT is the best shot i know
    from a certain place on the table (for me).

    I play Aruze Bubble Craps. This year, I generally lose $30 for every $100 I get back in Free Slot Play (each FSP is worth about $0.97 per dollar). Then I get a few hundred dollars in FSP in the mail plus free meals and rooms EACH month. I prefer eating at the buffet rather than restaurant.

    The hard part is cashing out hundred’s in FSP without the casino noticing. At one casino, I cashed out $400+ FSP in one night and that was a bit too much at one time. The last thing I want is a slot hosting approaching me each time I enter my slot reward card. I hate dealing with slot hosts.

    When the bubble crap is working well, I might lose $10 per $100 in FSP. On the nights the randomizer is hard to predict, I might lose $50 per $100 in FSP. Most times it’s pretty easy to predict when the machine is going to severely randomize the next roll.

    Lastly, I finally got my courage up to bet $150 naked on the pass and don’t pass line at the same time (folks, that is a 1/36 chance of losing $150 on the next roll). Typically, I would bet $30 or $60 naked, and anything more would require insurance, e.g. a side bet on boxcars.

    Lastly, let me use my “friend” as an example - this is a guy who could bet $30 on pass & don’t pass with 2X Odds without any fear (my unit is typically $6 and I use Hedged Odds). This guy could probably clearly $150/hr in FSP.

    I am JUST relaying information that HE had previously posted on THIS forum -

    Which is OVER ONE year - possibly TWO -

    If you look him up on the " MEMBERS " listing you can see when he last posted -


    HIS betting style is EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE -

    VDC / TSC - is ALWAYS a pleasure to watch - WIN - LOSE - DRAW -

    There is NO EMOTION !


    I, however, am NOT a proponent of his " tossing technique " especially from Straight Out !



    Personally, I - for ONE - would LIKE to BELIEVE that HE DID liberate $70K off of the table !

    His " system " that he sells is also an " aggressive " betting style -

    Which suits HIS fancy / style just fine !

    This is Barney,

    I agree with you Mr Gordon about Mr. Harley. I believe he even helped you when you practiced tossing the dices with that very annoying sounding target detector mechanical/electrical devices by the most greatest Mr. Linaways by providing the cotton balls for your ears. As I recall, he was the Supperick's bestest friend and always the nicest to him except for the last time the Supperick went on the roadtrip to the Florida. Do you have a most greatest craps table for sale since the LID's practice table in shed is getting very hard for me to clean off the goat shit?



    Thank you very much

    Define "severely randomize". Just for the record. And when it's doing this, it is instead of what? :)

    Congrats to Harley!!!!

    Sorry guys/gals. I haven't been posting for a bit, been very busy at the live tables. Session's are going good.
    I'm at the point where I am not comfortable mentioning money... I do want everyone to know I'm still alive.
    I'm gonna get back to the tables in a few hours... need to catch up on sleep.

    Im using a modified ROUTE66 strategy and it is proving to be a long term success.
    I'm only using a $200 starting bank roll instead of $1000 for the past 5 days straight and the modified strategy I use is:

    1) Start with 18 each on 6 & 8.
    2) After one win on 6 or 8, I drop 7 chips and tell the dealer "make my bets look like 64 across"
    3) Same bet or parlay depending on shooter.
    4) Stop after bank roll and winnings = $500
    5) Color up to one purple chip and leave the table.

    Start again with $200 after each new session.
    Please share this strategy to other forums.



    Cheers!!!!

    2.4 million what? :) I'm not sure how much I've won, but I am pretty sure that I lost most, if not all of it, back. But I only know of one witness. Does that count? :cool:

    $5235 at Golden Nugget in February, 2013. Took photo of $5000 chip that day. Bought in for $100, played
    $16/17 inside. When dice came to me, I splurged and played $5 pass, $10 odds, $27 across with fairly
    aggressive pressing. Had dice for approximately 40 minutes. Sevened out when going for a 10. Had $2000
    on table when crapping out. Kept the beautiful white chip and tipped the boys $235. I've never been on
    another roll anything like that. Wife walked up on me near the end and was oblivious to what was going on.

    This is a very bold question to ask a craps player. I guess a fair answer would be double my bank roll. but in reality at the live tables, depending on what you play might determine much different answers.

    If a firebet gets rolled that day, then I would say I've experienced $7000.00 days but then I've also had losing days where I would drop $500-$1000 in one sitting.

    Craps is craps where the win/loss can swing at the turn of the dice.

    In most cases when you see a player with about $50.00 in his chip stack and at the same time the player has more than $200.00 in chips spread out on numbers.

    You can have perfect dice control, Excellent knowledge about the game and what the house edge is but when it comes to playing this game, smart betting is what really determines what your wins will look like.

    Short of possessing insider information, there is no such thing as smart betting. Used together, the terms are oxymoronic.

    I would agree that "excellent knowledge about the game and what the house edge is" doesn't do you much good at play. This knowledge will get you a free cup of coffee if desired, but make that $5 if you use one of the skirts to fetch it for you.
