    If they follow the Mesa Master Bater oops Bettor they bet across and leave at the first seven!

    Call the meeting to order:
    Box numbers win fellas sevens lose!
    Meeting over.

    Enter the casino:
    Buy in:
    Roll seven.
    Game over.
    Walking out: "I walk into a casino and , I KNOW I CAN WIN"!
    "Oh well". "Maybe... just maybe next time!"

    Actually not true , I have had several smart player who have
    contacted me wanting to talk about craps.
    When you post things like this you show just how little success
    you have experienced in your life .
    Positive mental attitude and the willingness to put in effort ,
    Spending time , effort and energy is how people are able to succeed
    in life, You make it obvious with statements like the one above
    you just sit and wait hoping something good happens.
    Successful people make things happen.
    Yeah and every time they do . you and your group startwith
    the contradictions , criticism and insults .

    You're not on the DI stuff , you would never be able to grasp the concept
    You said it your self when you said.
    "I don't believe in it and I am certainly not going to learn it
    and even if I did learn it I wouldn't waste my time practicing."
    Some people just prefer to remain ignorant.

    I know you are one of those who will stand at the
    table till the bankroll is gone , you have yet
    to learn the value of , "LIMITING LOSSES"
    I also know that you gauge your level of success by
    how long you are able to play before you have gone thru
    your total bankroll. There are better ways to play.
    Wouldn't you love to have that felling JUST ONCE in your Life???
    instead of going into a casino expecting to lose because the math says
    you are expected to lose and you do
    This is undoubtedly something you have said on numerous occasions.

    Do yourself a favor , Quit playing craps save some of the money you are bound
    to lose.
    Just think of all the things you could have done with all the money
    you have , "SQUANDERED" over the years.
    You could probably have bought a plane....as TDVegas would say , "WINK WINK"

    Nope , but I did spend a bit of time doing motivation seminars
    helping successful people become more successful.
    You have made it quite clear that this stuff is difficult for you
    to understand and over the heads of people such as yourself.
    I will make every effort , in the future , to lay out my posts
    in terms simple enough that even you can understand
    If nothing else I do want to help you become a better player
    because I know if you quit playing you would have nothing left worth
    getting out of bed for in the mornings.
    GAWD KNOWS YOU NEED HELP
    you have made that QUITE APPARENT.

    LOL...it's craps, Jimbo. Roulette. Gambling. You're not doing motivational training for car salesmen or real estate agents.

    There's good reason why you and the Mesa boys....are in Mesa and no where close to a gambling city where you all would be looking for the nearest soup kitchen in a few weeks. Keep the boys on the practice table.

    I think duck boy could use some of that motivational training. He's not hacking it as a handicapper....failed on the bubble....I would guess the table isn't looking good either. See?...already got you a new client. :)

    And yet again you prove to the world that you don't know everything
    or anything depending on your point of view.


    Most of the Mesa guys live here in the Winter and live
    in other states in the Summer. They own at least two homes .
    One of them has homes in three cities . They can afford to
    live where they want and go play when and where they want.
    They are not restricted to pretending to play craps
    on a dollar minimum machine , they can actually afford
    to play the game , they could afford to play
    even if they were to lose.
    We will leave the soup kitchens to you and other
    degenerate gamblers who moved half way across the country
    so they could jump on their bicycle and go play everyday.

    Yeah I know communicating with a couple of these guys is
    like arguing with a couple of 4 year olds
    The problem is , as hard as we try , they just don't learn

    It is good to have a positive attitude ...
    ... but I have to raise a red flag here. I think it was Onautopilot who said something like, "The biggest mistake you can ever make is to know something that ain't true." I cannot put it any better. When I walk into a casino I too know I can win; what I do not know is if I will win. I know I have a good chance of winning, and you may know you have a better chance of winning, but I do not know I will win and I suspect you do not either.

    James Hall was in da house today!!

    Arrived on the bubble just as 3 Texas type guys were leaving after this horrid sequence...licking their wounds in the men's room I presume. Lot of dejected faces.

    I jumped in. I love arriving arriving after a bad sequence. Wouldn't you know it...guy next to me then reels off 30 rolls. Done. Timing in craps....it means almost everything. The difference between a happy face and a sad face can be nothing more than 5-10 minutes. Luck kicked in.

    That is delusion , Knowing YOU CAN WIN comes from experience,
    being able to repeat that is a matter of knowing what you did
    and repeating that process consistently.
    People many times go into a casino thinking
    I hope I win, Negative Thought.
    I go in determined to win. The only thing I want on my mind is , WHAT I MUST DO TO WIN
    I don't allow myself to think about how much I can lose on a bet
    I FOCUS on how much I WILL win.
    I never let my mind take me to the negative , I strive to stay positive
    Before I walk into a casino I make the decision to win and I concentrate
    on what I have to do to make that happen.
    People who go into a casino with expectation on their mind are rarely
    aggressive enough to make the bets that will allow them to win
    Many play that old , "Play To Lose Less Game"

    Timing means nothing at craps , winning at craps is a matter of
    producing enough numbers and betting the trends.
    The machines now is a different story , you are at
    the mercy of what ever numbers the machine produces
    You have no control , that is a shear case of what happens happens
    As far as LUCK , it doesn't exist
    Luck is just a way for losers to describe a winners success

    What I DO KNOW is
    IF YOU DON'T DECIDE YOU WILL WIN
    you probably won't
    Most players worry so much about losing they don't
    have time to think about what they need to do to win.

    Before the game starts a person knows exactly
    what he should do to win.

    While the game is going on he knows exactly
    what he should be doing

    But when the game is over he knows
    what he should have done
    that he just didn't have the courage to do

    Many people go thru this over and over again
    and they still don't learn a damned thing.

    It's not what we do playing craps we regret
    nearly as much as all the things we didn't do


    People will lose because of what they do while playing
    It is generally what they don't do that causes the biggest loses
    The bets they should have made and didn't
    It's the , "DAMN I SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON THAT"
    that costs the most

    Seems to me, James, that you're both a trend bettor and a DI bettor. However, I don't see how you can be both: Either you're good at following trends and don't need DI, or you're good at DI and don't need to follow trends. Oh, so when you see a trend, you bet that way. If you don't, you bet DI. Uh-huh! :rolleyes:

    You see TD, this is the part you don't understand. If a guy like myself is not playing the "bubble" it is not ME that has failed, but rather the casinos and guys like yourself that advocate the the bubble. Neither of you has been able to convince me in any way that playing the bubble is something that I want to be doing. I lose nothing, THEY do, and touts like yourself along with them. As for my success or failure in other gambling endeavors, I only reveal those on a "need to know basis anymore" and YOU have not convinced me, that you need to know. As for football. I stated that I didn't have a good "feel" for the league this year, and my record has proven me CORRECT on that point.

    One thing that is true is that you treated my specifics just like you treat the words of James.
    So in the end James is far better doing what he is doing because it takes less time
    and gets the same result.

    It seems wisdom comes with age.
