    You mentioned drug lords and wannabe gangstas
    I understand those people are quite prevalent out in that part of the country
    You folks really ought to do something about that

    For someone like you who plays once, twice a year....go for your high house edge bets. Might as well play lotto. Hell, even give slots a shot. You may have a better chance of hitting a progressive than your triple parlay.

    You have little understanding of regular craps play.

    Throwing continual money at center bets will lead you to the ruin that an ACA administrator went.

    You wouldn't understand this...because you see a craps table once in a blue moon.

    I see a lot of regular guys that would do well by playing low house edge and winning...but they are too drawn to the center bets and it usually dents the wins or obliterates them entirely.

    Sure, there are times I've seen center guys kill it on prop bets, hardways. Few and far, IMO. But...if you, James, visit the casino as infrequently as you do---go for those center bets. What's the other option? Turning $42 into $88 and going home?

    Maybe you'll turn that $42 into $880....or more. Chances are not....but so what? Whaddya gonna do?....go home with $42?

    When you play a regular game....let us know. And by regular...I don't mean in the Mesa garage with Parker, Leon and Amos using wooden chips.

    A regular player must be a bit more cognizant of the realities of...regular play. You wouldn't understand this.

    Just wait until you visit Horseshoe in Tunica. Finger Snappers, & prop bettors. The funny thing is that they only frequent Horseshoe Casino.

    I was told that a lot of the "Memphis Crew" ( Dope Boys) are now frequenting Tunica because of a jobless economy in Memphis, & all of the dope ( particularly Crack, & Heroin) that's being sold in Memphis.

    Memphis is a very dangerous place these days.

    What really alarmed me was that my city (Powder Springs) which is a suburb west of Atlanta has been flooded with Crack, & Heroin.

    They had a friggin special on T.V. the other night ( called INTERVENTION), & the segment was centered around Dope Addicts in Powder Springs, & Austell ( another suburb ten minutes from my area). What the fuck? Thought I had escaped this bullshit when I moved from Chicago! How do you raise your Grandkids around this mess?

    The drug epidemic in America is truly sad. When you start bringing back Heroin....it's a bad thing. Heroin was a 50's- early 70's drug, & then Crack Cocaine became the forerunner in the 80's.
    Now, they bring back this shit again 40 years later? What a fucking shame! The sad part is that Heroin is dangerous because of the dirty needles tossed around near the Elementary Schools.( Not to mention the number of Overdoses)

    Also, these Rat-fink Heroin users get behind the wheel in a fucking Car, Nod off, & the next thing ya know, somebody gets killed.

    At least with Crack Cocaine, the drug keeps these Junkies alert, geeking, & tweeking for days at a time, but Heroin.......Hard to stay awake when the shit has ya in a deep Nod!

    The Wife says she wants to move away from this shit. I guess that most of the Junkies in this area are functional Junkies with jobs, Careers, because the shit that they showed on T.V. the other night about Powder Springs......I haven't seen.
    No needles on the ground. No Junkies sitting in parking lots shooting dope, & nodding off......haven't seen it.

    Don't want to see it, either!

    A perfect summary, right to the heart of things.
    And James if you say: "What things" you're trolling, as usual.

    You must spend a lot of time trying to figure out what I actually do , how often I do play
    but let me assure you once in a Blue moon isn't even close , hell there are some times when I will cram 5 or 6 trips into any given blue moon
    The way I set and throw the dice affords me enough to remain net positive on
    the triple hard ways alone then you factor in the fire bet and my regular betting strategies hell man I'm , "SMOKIN" I realize for someone who plays the game you do has a hard time understanding what really playing the game is all about . Playing one or two numbers and pulling your two bets down when one hits allows you to walk away with very small losses
    But that just ain't for me , I wouldn't walk across the street to play the game you play or play for
    the kind wins you hope for but we have a deal
    you asked me to allow people to play what ever bets the choose , I agreed to that so I will
    allow you to play whatever bets you choose
    but see if you can stop playing , "THE WRONG GAME"

    I understand a lot of things and one of those things I understand is the fact that playing your game is a swift but painful death
    If you understood even a little bit about gambling and craps you would QUIT playing the way you claim you do
    If you do win playing the way you claim you play you would be better served to get
    a second part time job and stay the hell out of casinos , you would make more money

    You can win. So can I. So can everyone here.

    But, James...you’re not beating the game. Sorry to disappoint your grand delusions.

    Pfff...”net positive”. You act as if that is some kind of craps riches. Being net positive with 3-4 casino visits per year as you do isn’t a stretch.

    That’s your goal now? LOL. Net positive? Stay home in Mesa...those net positives have eaten up your fuel bill to Vegas.

    Then...you are playing craps for enjoyment. Ya got nuthin else.

    Didn’t we just go over this in a previous post. “Your way”...”my way”....?

    Live and let live.

    Yes you said I should allow them to play whatever bets they want , you have my permission to play any bet you want , I would be remiss if I didn't point out certain things
    I didn't say you shouldn't play the way you do , I was just pointing out the fact I would never play that way and why
    Carry on you are free to do as you wish

    Actually I am way beyond playing for fun / enjoyment / recreation I just grew accustomed to the money
    You say you can win , that depends on what you mean by winning , I am sure you are much like most players , you win some you lose some but in the long range scheme of things
    you are grossly behind / net negative
    If that is the case and I am quite sure it is the case you are by definition , "LOSING"
    On the other hand if you are way ahead say thousands of dollars then you are , "WINNING"
    win some lose some , is "recreation"
    If that is your bag so be it
    I think you posted at some point that you packed up and moved to Vegas so you could play more , again have at it , I don't need the game that much and I don't like playing it so much that I want to be in a casino every day
    It's your dollar put it wherever you want

    james, we were talking about the type of play at sugar house, and the assholes like yourself that feel this betting strategy works.

    do you think your childish comments about drug dealers being from this area of the country means a fucking thing to me or anyone else living on the east coast?northeast?
    you are an asshole in a class all your own.

    I don't understand at all that rick has already been knee deep in water and how he doesn't get it that someone like you is just another sinking ship. You are offensive to every real craps player who actually plays in casinos and not in hole in the wall bars.

    you are nothing more than an internet troll, barging into every thread to make the same stupid fucking comments to every poster or any poster every single day.

    You should go open your own board.

    We see a lot about the drug lords and gangstas out there , it appears that they just kind of do what they want. Suggesting something being done seems like good advice , the impression we get out here is that those people are taking over out there , the gangs MS13 etc. are doing pretty much as they please We see the riots where the police are just kind of staying out of the way
    Black lives Matter and Antifa run wild they need to be dealt with wherever they are

    That type of betting strategy works , it just aggravates you because it takes a little time to deal with them
    Your question was , "Do I think these things mean anything to you ?
    Yes it evidently does

    Perhaps - In Your INFINITE wisdom - WHEN you find time to get your head out of your ass -

    And your body out from behind the curtain that you so adeptly hide behind when challenged -

    YOU JUST MIGHT care to EXPOUND on the above Highlighted Statement of YOURS !

    In words of ONE syllable - OR - LESS - which appears to be YOUR preferred means of intellectual intercourse !
