    So then based on better than good , Once they got the weight room and all that , they could back off
    all those pesky practice sessions all cross their fingers and hope LUCK would secure them , wins

    I have never been one much for relying on luck , I guess I never had much o0f that so I pretty much had to work
    for any success I got
    In golf , I found that if I didn't work on my game , it just wasn't there come tournament time
    When I was going to school I found luck to be NO Allie , it just seemed like without doing the work I just didn't make it

    I just don't trust to be there when the going gets tough so to be on the safe side I err to the side of caution
    In craps I find that
    "The more I work and practice , "THE LUCKIER I GET"

    That's luck I can count on , That is luck I have earned
    I have never been lucky so I am stuck with being good and that means doing the work . To all those
    who RELY ON LUCK instead of skill I hope they have enough to allow them to win

    As far as Kansas State , it sounds like a lot of people made a lot of good decisions
    and did a lot of the right things and they got a lot of good results
    "THEY DESERVE WHAT THEY GOT"
    Good story

    A SRR that is consistently below average works just as good. ( Darkside)

    The difference between winning and losing most times
    comes down to , WHO IS THE MOST PREPARED
    it comes down to , who brought their A GAME
    and who just hopes to get lucky

    The term "house money" is a scam perpetuated by the casino industry and unscrupulous system sellers to get you to over bet your bankroll and lose money quicker.

    If a $6 six hits and you press it to $12 you have $12 of YOUR MONEY at risk.................

    top

    That is correct, the only way to make money at the table is
    to be on the table when something is happening that is
    against the normal number distribution, or to be able to
    change that distribution yourself.

    Variance and influence can have the same affect.

    Money that you WIN is not apart of your original "bankroll"
    Betting house money is a way to leverage your bets
    without dipping into your original bankroll .
    Using house money in place of your
    original bankroll is a way of applying a force multiplier
    to your game without increasing your
    originally intended bankroll.
    If you were playing with an original bankroll of $100
    ran it up to $800 and lost it all back , walking out
    with zero dollars , would YOU say you lost $100
    for the session or would you say you lost $800?

    I suggest the term "house money" is more of a misnomer than a scam. To be sure, if you hit a $6 six you can take the $13 you now have and leave; no security officers will intercept you on your way to the cage and thence to your room/car. All of that money is your's; calling some of it "house money" is merely a convenient way to distinguish it from your initial stake.
    Agreed. It is the same mechanism that compound interest uses: reinvesting returns from an original investment (your winning wager) in search of a higher return on that original investment while subjecting it and the profit it has generated to that point to additional risk.

    Learn to read Harley. I have no problems with a initial large bet. In fact...I highly endorse it. I'm simply NOT endorsing all six numbers.
    If you call yourself a skilled shooter...WHY bet ALL the numbers?
    Let me guess. Simply because you have no earthly idea as to WHICH numbers you will toss. Its called RANDOM.
    You guys loose credibility with each, & every post. Now, HOW could James POSSIBLY put a " like" on your post, & he never bets more than $27 Across? Lol
    So....in Jame's case...I'm assuming that $5- $6 wagers are initial large outlays? Oh....I forgot. His wife, & daughter are doing the heavy lifting. Lol
    In every post of Jame's...it's always Leon, Parker, & the plane. Never a mention of the wife, & daughter accompanying them on the plane ride.
    Let me take another guess. The wife, & daughter hitch hike to Vegas while you guys fly in the luxury of the Mesa Cruiser!!! I guess that two more bodies on the plane would increase fuel expense to point wherein it would compromise profits from the Vault Assaults from the Casinos. Please don't start with the " PERSONAL attacks thingy" by me mentioning the wife, & daughter. I respect family, & only included the wife, & daughter because SUPPOSEDLY they we're mentioned in prior posts as HEAVY lifters. I HOPE that is VERY clear. NO personal attacks against family!!!!



    You two Genious's were a " Shoe in" for Class Clowns.

    That is very true. That analogy cannot be disputed.

    I agree. It's only the term "house money" that I feel is misleading. If you reinvested your stock dividends in Enron you still lost everything when they seven outed. I highly doubt that people said "oh well, most of it was house money".

    Most gamblers would say that.
    A person buys in for $100 gets ahead $900 for a total of $1,000
    and blows it all by the end of the session
    he will say he lost $100 , which was his initial bankroll.
    How would a gambler characterize the loss to his wife?
    would he describe it as losing $100 or would he say he lost $1,000?

    OK, I see your point. The difference is in the situation. In the casino a player -- make that an intelligent player -- puts at risk only what he/she can afford to do without. Theoretically, then, the player who busted is still capable of sustaining the lifestyle to which he/she is accustomed.

    In the securities markets many players are investing in anticipation of maintaining their lifestyle after their retirement from their day jobs. IOW they are depending on their investments having a positive return. Enron's collapse did not just screw its outside investors; it really screwed any employees who had purchased its stock through a 401K retirement plan.

    TT, Your post above Confirms that you are a VERIFIED IDIOT!

    If James Places 27 Across, all he stands to Lose is $27 on that roll, Duh!

    Whereas on a LONG ROLL, with pressing, James can easily collect upwards of $1,000; remember also, that he PRESSES only those #'s that HIT, this hammers that frequently hit # automatically.

    While your posted BS, of betting big, Say $100 on a single #, requires that # to be hit frequently, to make big $$$, while this is highly unlikely to happen.

    Yah TT, you will give this thread that BS that you can hit Five 10's, easily on a single throw, but the folks here know that's just a big embellishment of the facts on your part.

    Starting with a $5 bet
    That would be good for over $600 on a $5 table
    and over $2400 on a $10 table
    on that one number alone
