    Great catch! A SAR will certainly be filed and a CTR will be legally required if cash is involved either coming or going...which begs the question: Is cash involved? IIRC he's starting with $50K in chips (i.e. 100 purples). I'm beginning to suspect these are promo chips and this entire exercise is some kind of challenge, like some restaurants issue: Finish a meal that would feed the Sixth Fleet in an hour and it's free.

    Actually it's more like this on how it all started.
    The other tuesday during my monster roll attracted a few big wigs who like to bet pretty high and they like to put extra chips on the shooter.

    Just the other day one of the gentlemen was there the same night I roll 15+ numbers, 4 number fire bet and also made quite a bit that evening.

    Just the other day I made a 5 number fire bet that also attracted a few big wigs to the table.

    How I pondered in to this was the simple term that started it all. and that was when my wife was shooting the dice, I would yell out "$10 hard six for the shooter", "$15.00 3-way for the shooter'. I kept doing this all night during the following weekend, and in turn many of the higher bettors started doing the same.

    It was like a crazy trend thing going on.

    Conversation struck later on with "I'm gonna be here again on May 24 weekend Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. And in reply these guys setup a meeting to be there also that weekend.

    Big wigs got money and they don't mind to invest in a good shooter. So we will find out May24 weekend how everything works out.

    If things work out good with these big wigs, who knows maybe i'll be famous like the Dominator, or The Captain.

    In preparation, I've become pretty close with the dealers and they have a very clear understanding of my bets. I was intrigued by one of the dealers saying that all my place bets were pressed by another player.

    In the mean time, i'm gonna try to keep a good relationship with the dealers and throwing them in the game when the hot times start.

    I found a good way to start this is from a simple $25.00 chip for the dealers on the POINT and $5 firebet keeps them happy and in more concentration on my bets.

    I really need the dealers focused with all positive attitudes for the May 24 weekend.

    I'm in Canada so no worries about tax forms. It's all clear cash when you win here.

    Well, now that we know it's just an over inflated ego the last thing I would have done was tell the casino the date that big money would be showing up. They will be sure to have their best dice on the table so I'd lay the 9 or 5.

    Canada has similar money laundering rules to the US so you should probably tell the big boys to play their own money and you'll play your's.

    Point taken...and a tip o' the hat for concealing your location so cleverly in the avatar box. :confused:

    So there is no deal with your silent partners? You're merely hoping some purples come your way?

    Ah, hah! A "conspiracy theory". Let's explore every angle, leave no leaf unturned. Let's get to the bottom of it. Damn, man, don't you think you might be over- handicapping this one. How do you double 50K, playing CRAPS, in three days, minimum bet $500? What's so complicated? :) Come on, give us the answer. :D I might even give you mine. For free much less. :cool:

    When I get home I'll run a number for this. I'd say off hand probably 66% chance of 2 12s in a hundred rolls. :)

    66% chance of 2 12s in a hundred rolls. I could believe it but, today's session was only one hour and at least one twelve averaged from each shooter. so 7 12's in one hour of possibly 100 rolls.

    You may have been "created" into a better circumstance than many others, but that is just the luck of the draw. When I reflect on created equal, it is from a Universal view.

    But this could go on for ever, I opt out if you maintain you are superior to others. To me, when you say you might be more equal than some others, I take it mean superior.

    Wow! This guy even goes on a Craps forum, & posts where he plays ( Fallsview Casino). Lol

    Kinda reminds me of the So'Called Di's that brag that they " Fly under the radar" taking the Casino's money.

    Then they go on a CRAPS FORUM, & say: If anyone wants to meet up with a Stellar shooter, I#lo be playing at the IP in Biloxi. I will be wearing a Money Green shirt with Dice imprints, a Green baseball cap that says "open the vault", & I'll be the guy at Stick Left 1 tossing a GTC exaggerated pendulum backswing, Heisman Tropy pause at the end swing!

    I TRY to remain as discreet as possible, whilst flying under the radar, & taking the Casino's money.

    Ya can't make this shit up!

    Could the term , "more equal" be an , "oxymoron" ?
    What exactly would it mean for one person to be , "SUPERIOR" to another , what's the test ? Who judges ?
    Regardless of circumstances a person can nearly always change them

    Fallsview Casino is a very nice facility. Great view of the Niagara Falls from some of the tables in the buffet, which is one of the better ones I have dined at.

    When gambling overseas, you have to take into account the exchange rate, not just the denomination on the chips. Last year we visited Lima, Peru and I had time to check out a few local casinos. Initially I bet like I would here in the US at a $5-$10 table, except in the local currency, Peruvian Soles. Out of habit, I placed the 6 & 8 for 12 Soles each. It took me a while to get used to the fact the exchange rate was also a factor because the same '1', '5', '25' markings are on the chips. At the time of our visit, the exchange rate was approximately 1 USD = 3 Peruvian Soles. So I had a whopping $4 on both the 6 & 8 with those 12 Soles place bets. The flip side is you don't want to be "flaunting" your wealth at a gaming table while overseas, so buying in for 15,000 Soles (@$5,000 USD when I visited) at a Lima, Peru casino would not be advisable even if such an occurrence wouldn't raise an eyebrow in Las Vegas.

    Here is an alternative to divulging too much information on the forum
    Say you go play and win , oh , lets say just shy of $30,000 rather than saying what casino you won it in and
    alerting the casinos to your prowess we use Casino names that are code named so as not to alert the suits in that particular casino
    where the win took place
    The suits in the casinos read these forums and they have software they use to ferret out winners from the non hackers
    We could use the name , say maybe , Imperial Palace in Podunk Arkansas a thriving community of some 355 people
    The suits in the casino where the win actually took place would never catch on
    Any thoughts ?

    Certainly one can change their circumstance...dreams and hope, followed by the "price" one must pay for the change.

    But being born superior. or your terminology, "more equal;", is not my idea of individual worth, and deserving of that worth! A Universal concept in my opinion.

    So, no, we are all born equally deserving, and worthy of all this world has to offer.

    You nor I were born "more equal", or superior to anyone else on this planet....except for a few that just need killing Judge! :)

    Of course actual DIs use a more subtle approach with stealth apparel from Video Accessories Inc.

    Not sure how to run this for two hits, but I got you at about a 75% chance of hitting one twelve in fifty rolls. So, this strategy is not as bad as you thought it was. If there is a math genius listening, double check my number, and run this for two hits in fifty rolls, if you know the method. :) This is what I came up with MR B.S. :cool:
