Dicepops: I've found a lot of places in No. Nevada that have only a 1/2 table open in the morning. How does this fit the discussion? ********** Knuckle Bumping. When you are the only player in Reno or Sparks for that matter, maybe you knuckle bump yourself. This would make the comment fit the conversation... doesn't it? Which half side of the table is open for a player? I find that the left side of the table, from the player's perspective facing the table, seems to be the most common. (Just thought I would make up something to move things along.) Many Craps Players have never seen a 12 or 14 foot table with a board placed to shorten the table for slow times and one dealer. As a Thread spins out of new ideas, the conversations will wander as well. The "half" table would be a misnomer as you are excluding some center table wagers. It is probably more a 2/3rds table to include the Hard 10 and Hard 4. The next time I see them remove the board... I want to see where it is kept. Now, that would be new information. I no longer have a 12 or 14 foot Craps Table... but the extra foot on each end of the 14 foot table is more blank green space on each end. You are getting more cloth, but the 12 foot silk screening centered to the table is the same for either length of table. Someone step in and correct me if I am wrong. Dealer Procedure on an EMPTY Craps Table: I will have to defer to rudeboy99... but I have seen this occur on an empty table. I will have to run through my Dealer Manuals to see if it is also mentioned as an "oddity of opening a Craps Table". When you are the one and only player, you do not have to make a Pass Line or Don't Pass Line wager to SHOOT. This is a GREAT technicality at an EMPTY Craps Table! You must make a bet... anything to be able to shoot, but not necessarily the standard requirement of making a contract wager to secure the dice to shoot. This came up at Craps Dealing School for Harrah's in Missouri. Think about it... Lets say you only play Hardways when you play. You cannot ask a Dealer to shoot. You cannot pull someone off a Black Jack Table to shoot... as they would have to have a contract bet Pass or Don't Pass wager to shoot the dice. Want to have fun when you walk up to an empty table? Make some Place Bets and Hard Ways... and see if they accept them and let you shoot the dice... tell us how it went. At first your end dealer will be a bit confused... as this probably has never happened before. There is no Boxman to approve it. The Pit Boss is probably wandered off somewhere and if you have a stickman and a second dealer... watch their expressions! Totally legal and legitimate. Not any different than making a PUT BET, skipping the Come outcome!
