    In all my posts I try to offer that winning is more than just possible.
    I offer the thought that with , WORK ,
    training and practice there are few limitations to
    what a person can expect to achieve.
    Every post on this forum of a POSITIVE nature is met by statements from
    you and others such as:
    "TALL TALES & DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR".
    Some of us on this forum try to reflect what is possible
    then from you and others we hear , "That's , "BS" influence is fleeting and marginal".
    Two things come out of your posts in a GLARING fashion.
    Read your posts , they are designed to give
    the impression that winning is all but impossible.
    Every post on this forum with even a hint of winning is met
    with a negative response.
    Some of us suggest that people can learn things that will enhance
    a persons opportunity to win. When I mention training you come back
    with some snide negative remark suggesting that training or learning
    is not possible.
    Post your attitudes and opinions , I will continue to
    encourage people to learn. I will continue to suggest that there
    is more to craps than RANDOM OUTCOMES , I will
    continue to suggest that there are many things that people
    can do to enhance their opportunities of winning.

    My message is :
    There are ways to win , learn one.

    What's yours???

    There is a reality that TDVegas will not accept. It is not
    necessary to "CHANGE CHIP COLOR" to win sizable
    amounts of money.
    You can start at table minimum and with a good betting strategy
    have all your money off the table and be betting with house money
    in short order.

    A $10 bet on the 5 or 9 on the 4th hit you would have $348
    on that number alone. While the not so savvy player would rack $56 APP.

    This is the stuff you should be posting the ,
    "TALL TALES & DELUSIONS of GRANDEUR" accompanied
    by an explanation of how you went about it.
    This might give some random player or some novice player
    a little encouragement.

    Nope I am just a bit surprised that you have
    reverted to what you call , "PAST POSTING" after the way
    you condemn it so. , "MIXED MESSAGES"

    He likes it two ways.
    His attitude is:
    "What's good for the goose may not be good for the gander"
    and he , will be the one who decides what is good for either.
    ;)

    It cleared out today. Blue skies but still snow on the mountains. Sun should melt most of it today. Bring on spring and summer.

    Shows you how just a little snow drives fear into people here. They cancelled public schools today. In the Midwest or east coast....they would be laughing at Vegas.

    Streets were dry. Blue skies. I have no idea what would possess them to close schools other than the potential for black ice.

    Many people in the desert have no idea how to drive
    on slick roads , perhaps it's simply a safety precaution.

    A $10 bet on 5 or 9
    After a single win Drop $1.00 and go to $25
    After a second win do a full parlay to $60
    After 3rd Drop $1.00 and go to $145
    After it hits again, Take it down and walk away from the table with $348.00

    Exactly correct , that is part of one of my betting strategies.

    If you decide to continue when you hit for $348
    rack $3 leave $345 on the number
    hit for $483 total is now $828
    drop $2 press to $830 win $1162 total $1992
    rack $2 press to $1990 win $2786 total $4776
    rack $276 press to $4500 win $6300 total $10,800
    if the allow you to go over a $5,000 limit
    That math beats the hell out of th casino math that says
    the house has the advantage and you ain't gonna win.

    Perhaps more practical than your dependence on hitting seven fives or nines prior to seeing one [6][1] or [5][2] or [3][4] (obviously very likely, (pssst, I jest)) to win $10800, would be to place duplicate $5 [3][3] and [4][4] and roll each of them three times before rolling one [1][6], [2][5], [4][3], [1][5], [4][2], [2][6], or [5][3].

    Here, you would end with $800 less, so perhaps that is the reason to place the odd number.

    Would not it be easier yet to place/buy an outside number taking 2:1 payment less vig? Perhaps it would take a few less hits to see the five figure take, aka as the vault assault.

    My apologies, I see an introduction stating the above is one of your betting strategies. Perhaps some of these other things I mention are other parts.

    It is all good when it works, but it doesn't always work, does it?

    Let’s see. $25 pays $36
    Keep a buck
    Drop $3 and go to $150
    Drop $7 vig and walk away from table with $366. Life is better in Mississippi!

    I had a $100 nine the other day, hit it five times for a total of $725. If I used your method starting at $25, no I’m not going farther, might make me sick
