    One of the many issues some have with James Hall and his craps strategy is short term (i.e., quitting when you get ahead) versus long term. In games which are random it makes no difference which strategy you use because it’s all one big session and consequently some think he is full of shit. But that is the rub. Is craps completely random for dudes that allegedly have a controlled toss like James? If a player has some edge due to his tossing allegedly like James, then his strategy of short term playing followed by truthful, unbiased feedback of his tossing after each session has merit and maybe a path to self improvement and hopefully some cash for some of us talented people.

    If you really understand your toss and do an unbiased analysis of how your toss behaved after a session then his $42 loss strategy may have merit and is very similar to what I have been doing for the last 6 years or so. The main problem that both believers and atheists have with James is his arrogance but he isn’t even a close second to guys like Travis McGee, Mark Twain, and to some extent Supperick and Linaway.

    Now Dan Mahoney (a craps professional) and I have just completed a short roadtrip to southern Illinois and Indiana where in one of the joints I used a modified James Hall prop bet action because my toss that session was so damn pretty and sitting down great. Dan couldn’t believe how pretty it was so after getting ahead I bet $10 on the hard eight in honor of James Hall. I hit a hard eight and I of course parlayed it which hit again and I was up $1000 after successive hard eights. I parlayed it for the third time since they let me exceed the table max bet. After a two 5s, I hit it for the third time for $10,000. After some suits discussions they said I could let it ride but I chickened out even though I know it’s house money and not really mine. So I pulled $7K and let the $3K ride. After a few crap numbers it hit again for an additional $30,000. When I was done I had made a “huge” amount of money. Of course I didn’t have to pay taxes on this but I did have to fill out some money laundering papers. This joint made me have my picture taken and before we had left the joint they had my mug plastered on the wall.

    Ya know....you joke, & bullshit a lot, & ya keep us in stitches, but .....EXCELLENT post. The reality is just as you stated. If you analyze your toss ( left/right die), & ya see a consistency in one, or both die.....that's an advantage.

    The only problem is gathering the data BEFORE ( on the fly) you start betting aggressively. Regardless of what the Naysayers say.....if ( for example) your left die flips more than the right die....say at a 1.5- 2:1 clip.....that's an advantage.

    Most people don't give a Rat's Ass about left/right die tracking, because they say the game is totally random, & that left/right die tracking is a futile attempt.

    All ya need is that shooting Quirk wherein one Die does a little something more consistently than the other die. Demango tracks left/right, & submits the results in BoneTracker.

    Linaway teaches the TRUE meaning of Dice Outcomes, but does not necessarily focus on left/right outcomes.

    If shooters would just take the time to see what each die is doing on every toss ( forget about trying to force influence), they might be shocked as to what one Die might be doing consistently more than the other die, just because of the WAY in which they toss the dice. ( Could be totally unintentional)

    Heh.......we are ALL looking for an edge...A glitch, something that occurs more times than not. It might just be in the way that you toss the dice ( as a random roller), & you're sitting on a slight advantage, & DON'T even know it!

    People don't understand that there can be influence in your toss without ya even trying to influence.

    It's called a shooting Quirk, but of course, most will just say.....BULLSHIT!

    Just as some say: " Setting the Dice might not help, but it doesn't hurt"!

    It doesn't hurt for you to see if one of your die flips more than the other die either. I guess you guys would shit your pants if ya found out that one Die flipped more than the other die by a 3:1 ratio.......$$$$ Cha-Ching!!!!

    For all of the thinking and analyzing of previous shots, their pre-set, grip used, landing area, etc, it is amazing how, once released and traveling, bouncing and rolling to their final destination, we shooters are wide-eyed, open mouthed and holding our breath, waiting for that final position to be called out.

    Since we are experts at this craft, shouldn't we rather just light up a stogie upon release of the dice and call out to the dealer, "I want paid in blacks"?

    Love that pic LID, but be careful about those taxes.

    Gee, do you know how to piss off a guy by grouping us with the Rip off Artists
    Travis McGee, Mark Twain, and the bullshit the two of them are selling.

    It's amazing how someone that has only been living in the Vegas since Nov. can pass themself off as an expert on the game of craps and anything else that they are selling. Maybe their suckers never watched the videos of the big $20 wins that the one guy posted and is boasting about walking after a $20 win and then moving on to the next casino in his Uber car!

    The one thing about Vegas is that everyone that thinks they have a way of ripping off suckers end up in Vegas!

    This is Barney,

    Mr LID is seriously considering taking back all great things he says on this post about the craps cowboy since he thought the greatest Mr Hall was having the most major and serious surgery like the penis reduction surgery not the most common eye surgery which even my goat had. I will try to tell him that the greatest Mr Hall is still a greatest craps buddies regardless of the surgery.


    Thank you very much

    I thought you had a memory like an elephant, but as I remember it was Snakeyes (not Snake who might be the real owner of the missing craps table) that posted what he thought was Hardley's real name as Travis McGee during one of their vicious posting attacks. Then he later found out Travis McGee is a fictional character that probably Hardley admires. Now I don't care what his real name is and maybe Supperick doesn't even know but the Travis McGee fits him to the tee in the great missing craps table caper. Here's the description of the literary Travis McGee, and you can't make this shit up:.

    Travis McGee
    is a fictional character, created by American mystery writer John D. MacDonald. Unlike most detectives in mystery/detective fiction, McGee is neither a police officer nor a private investigator; instead, he is a self-described "salvage consultant" who recovers others' property for a fee of 50%

    Yeah, after Harley ripped off the craps table and disappeared the craps table showed up in Poopshoots videos. Every thing has been turned over to a detective and we are going about getting it back through the police!

    We will find Harley and Mark and get the table back. So if any of you know Marks address please pm me.

    We do know that Harley is in Vegas. I ran into him but could not get the cops there fast enough before he took off.

    Harley, even went so far as threatening me saying that he was going to tell my wife about everything I do when playing craps. I showed the threat to my wife because she knows what I do and she said F him.

    Isn't this true of anyone selling "information" about beating the game of craps?

    No, no...$nakeEye$ knew his real name. Don or Donnie, if this elephant remembers.

    Unless there are two $nakeEye$?

    The first time I heard the name Travis McGee was from Rick....when he said it was in fact Harley using the name as a selling point for the "Trinity Method".

    KogaCola has the you tube video talking it up.

    Can't miss...
    Never before seen...
    New math never witnessed before...

    Sounded like a sham to me....

    "So good"
    "So revolutionary"
    "Can't miss"
    Yada, yada...

    Then he's says...."ya gotta release this to the public"

    LOL...no ROFLMAO...

    My first sense it was a scam....??...when I did a quick search on this name.
    Travis McGee is a fictional character, created by American mystery writer John D. MacDonald.

    This took 2 minutes to figure out TM doesn't exist.

    It's like using the name...
    Dick Tracy
    Holden Caufield
    Bruce Wayne

    To a lesser extent.

    He would have been better off with Jim Jameson, John Smith, Art Samuels.

    TDV, now you got me confused if I am right or you are. It is a possible some of my brain cells have been killed and I am misremebering these particular Snakeyes/Harldley midnight rants. But please don't refer to Snakeyes as Snake since there are too many Snakes and Little Joes running around in Vegas and it can cause confusion.

    Snake is a different person from $nakeEye$.....

    There can only be one.

    Now ya got me dis remembering....mis remembering?
    Forgetting?

    It's late and I haven't had my last cup of Sanka.

    Great video TDV. It's hard to imagine what most of the guys who idolized Kokoninja as the real deal on the grey board/short bus must think of him now. His credibility and honesty just went in the crapper with this video. He makes the shamwow guy look like a rookie pitch man.
