    Frank -

    It is a damn shame that you succumbed to the low life antics of Harley and Rick on this forum -

    I can not blame you - I am surprised that you tolerated their sh*t for as long as you did -

    Harley has NOT responded ONE TIME to valid questions presented to him -

    He constantly evades the question / or / fails to provide proof of his bullsh*t statements / comments -

    We have a group who shoot in AC which is not as active since Lucky Lady and I have moved West -

    Primarily because it was - I - who got the group together - and rattled their feathers -

    However, I am going to forward your email to the honcho of the group - rcsshankar - and request that He add YOU to the email list -

    Our activities are kept OFF the forums - and are private amongst the group -

    They are a bunch of good guys and gals who have the same interest as you, LL and I do -

    There are a few from LI, Manhattan, North Jersey and points South .

    Give OUR regards to " the Beautiful AP " from LL and I -

    BTW - 6/14 - Flag day - was our 40th Wedding Anniversary !

    God Bless YOU and YOURS !

    $...eE..$ and Lucky Lady

    Well if you wish to keep piling on, there is always GamblingForums. You can't kick that liar enough, though he is getting slapped around there too. Such a shame such a greedy POS should get sucked up to on any forum. A cancer to the DI world.

    "Confessions of a Wayward Catholic" IS very funny especially if you went to catholic school and /or grew up in Brooklyn.

    FredP,....When I first started going to school it was in West Philadelphia, there was a Catholic school right across the street. Back then there was no air-conditioning in the schools, so our windows were always open when it was warm. The nuns would take the students outside to whack them across the knuckles with a ruler. You could hear the students screaming out every time they whacked one of their miss behaving students!


    I can still visualize the whole scene, that always stuck in my mind. I knew that all of us kids that were going to a regular school were the lucking ones. Corporal punishment was very common back then. The good nuns didn't have any problem handing it out to any student that didn't conform to what they were teaching!

    I got my knuckles whacked too but in the classroom. I was a terror and surprised they did not kill me. Ah, the good old days.

    OK. Lets summarize. According to Harley, every casino table has bias dice and every manufacturer makes bad dice....if you ask Harley, every casino risk manager wants to steal from customers and use bias dice to improve the profits. if you ask Harley, when a di fails it is because of bias dice. if you ask Harley, when a di has a long roll, it is because of bias dice. According to Harley the normal probability in the game of craps does not exist because of bias dice. According to Harley when random rollers are exposed to a series of quick seven out's or have a series of repeat numbers it is only because of bias dice. And according to Harley if you don't leave a table and "walk across the street" because you notice it has bias dice, your not a real craps player. If you ask Harley the outcome of dice are not random they are skewed to the bias dice being used. If you ask Harley, there are no longer fair craps games because they all use bias, defective, or cheap dice. Just about anything Harley says about bias dice can actually be replaced with "random dice" and the statements would be true.

    obviously Harley and his crew have an agenda around bias dice but the more Harley and his flunkies rant about bias dice the more they lose credibility in the community.

    driglaz - Wow o_O that's incredible you can put those kind of words in my mouth or that you interpreted my postings in such a way to come to that conclusion :rolleyes:

    I never said there are not fair craps games out there - plenty of fair craps games exist .... in fact, I know several casinos that run fair craps games 24/7 365 ... all I posted was a free PSA to be more observant at the table instead of assuming you have fair dice or caveat emptor

    Well, it appears you are on a bias dice conspiracy, and you so are adamant about bias dice and keep bring it up in different posts I had to comment because it is not not from a single PSA. In fact, your have published on other forums with the same conviction. Plus, how can you be certain the places you think run fair craps games indeed do while so many others dont, perhaps it is just random dice being random and what you see are short-term fluctuations in random probability?

    So then, what is your agenda, care to share?

    Im not quite sure why there seems to be a bit of animosity towards this poster.
    Yes, its obvious so many know him because of his books.

    and there is nothing that says he isn't entitled to his opinion as much as I am or anyone else is.
    None of us have to believe anything anyone posts, and no one is forcing anyone to purchase anything from them on this forum.
    Regardless of what some may think, making people uncomfortable here that makes them want to leave, if the person is the type that is non confrontational, don't think its great for a board.

    this poster does not hide behind some cutsie handle, he uses his name.

    while I don't agree with some of his points of view, I see no reason to bash him or Want him to leave this board.

    what has he done to anyone except voice his beliefs as far as craps?

    he can publish anything he wants, its fiction, fact, don't matter, if someone likes his writing style, why would I care?

    I don't recall him calling anyone an asshole or moron, seems he has more class than a lot of other people.

    controversy and different opinions and approaches to this game in civil discussions on this forum is what makes this forum a good place to visit and participate.

    He claims to be an advantage craps player. He wins. He makes a living playing craps. Why, if he has mastered the dice, would he go on and on about bias dice and in the process open up an investigation which may thwart his advantage play? Doesn't make sense....unless he is not an advantage player, not making a living playing craps and incurring losses with those "crooked" dice. Then, it makes sense.

    People that have to resort to vulgar personal attacks on a continuing basis, have a misconception that everyone's reality should somehow match their reality, no matter how skewed their reality has become. That skewed reality is not capable of rational discourse....only a "Louder and Louder, Over and Over", vulgar attack. Unfortunately, it sometimes develops into a group, or crowd mentality...rationality takes a vacation!

    Now, now, now everybody has to make money some how, if Frank can do it by selling books more power to him. I t sure would beat going to work everyday doing some job that you hated. Unfortunately his audience is nothing but gamblers, so they will turn on him, because they can't win. If everything he wrote about worked the casinos would be out of business!

    Writers have turned gambling into a very lucrative business for themselves, there are always going to be guys like me that say tell me it isn't so. We want to see the proof that what they are writing about could happen, in the case of the Captain,.. Frank would have a hard time proving that the Captain's roll ever happened. There are to many things that just don't add up. Like when the roll happened there were 30 people standing around the table and nobody ever came forward to say they were there. Then you had is roll by roll count, telling his readers what happened at different points in the roll, but he wasn't writing the rolls down so, does he have a photographic memory?

    He made sure that he led you in a different direction when he wrote about his own roll that he said the Dominator was tracking when he had his 89 number roll. So did that set everybody up to believe that there was somebody tracking the Captains roll when there wasn't anybody tracking the Captains roll?

    I can't tell you how many times I've hear that was just a fifty roll when the shooter only had a 29 roll, because nobody was tracking the rolls. But Frank wrote that he was using chips to track the roll, but that can't explain how he could write about what happened at different points in the roll. Again does Frank have a photographic memory? I love the one paragraph in his book when he was writing about the Captains roll.
    Well Frank got what he wanted when he wrote about the Captain, what he also got was those that wanted to question the Captains roll, because Frank can't prove that it happened. Yes,... the Captain gave Frank all of the things he wanted! Along with the guys that wanted to question the Captains roll.

    And now Frank gives us -30-,..... With no answers to our questions!


    We all have our hero's, Some craps players need them to keep going back to the casinos when they are losing, they need that pie in the sky and Frank gives it to them with his character "The Captain". we should all thank Frank for giving all those that need their hero "The Captain" that keeps them going back to the casinos and losing, I know the casinos loves the Captain!

    Hi Liman,

    No problem about critics. The ones that are nasty for the sake of being nasty are, well, nasty. The ones that say the same thing over and over even after I've answered them, well, they just say the same thing over and over.

    ---Frank

    This thread had gotten a bit off the original topic but (when just ready to post this) i see now that the last couple-a posts have brought it back on track and i want to add two cents worth...

    I've posted a similar sentiment before but i think this forum is getting a little stale because it is attracting no or few new participants...It has become mostly preaches to the choir or trying, mostly in vain, to recruit peoples to your choir...there is still enough here to keep me coming back but it is getting thin, even given the justifiable dissing of golf (o...wait...that was i did that...never mind...)

    I dont know much about Frank Scoblete, mostly in fact from what i have learned here...he writes books, including some on the topic of craps, writes a column for a gambling rag and apparently has had some success with those writings, ...i found myself agreeing with much of his stuff here...

    ...but even if i disagreed with him profoundly, as indeed i do with some here, i would be saddened to see him go as i would with the others too with whom i disagree ...we need all of the ideas we can get on here, especially so for a craps board, a topic upon which there is little, if anything, new under the sun, but also a topic about a gambling game that is very high up there on the entertainment scale...

    ...unfortunately he seems to either have a fairly thin skin or maybe his objective here was adulation, a public forum on a quarrelsome topic being not the best place for that--or, worse, just did not find enough here to hold his interest, perhaps a direct result even of the paucity of participants and a corresponding waning of new ideas...

    i wish he wouldnt leave...
