    Yes I am a believer in practice.my toss and landing are identical whether in live play or with a rig. The throw is the same. But practice with a flaw in your throw only reenforces that flaw. Heavy told me " Perfect practice makes you an accomplished DI. I agree and practice leads to fluidity and a stressless delivery.keep your sessions short and start to build. Works for me.

    Yeah, practice makes perfect. Probably why Heavy sells used Jeep parts & charges After Glow fees. Guess his perfect practice aint working, huh?

    I know...... Were all just jeaulous because we dont possess the skill level to practice perfectly. When we all hit seventeen six point fire bets, then, & ONLY then will we have a clue.

    Right, Diamond Dave?

    Jeez Dave, you're like a professional student.

    Soon, you'll be too old to actually apply the skill.
    Get going and make some money.

    Practice - to do repeatedly so as to become proficient.

    Random - purposeless, haphazard.

    Perfect - flawless, excellent.

    Dice - small cubes marked on each side with a different number of spots used in games of chance.

    If practice makes perfect, and if dice are random, do perfect dice result in random practice or in the practice of randomness?

    I was always the '6th man' in sports. I did not have the innate athletic ability, nor the physical traits that would get me noticed right away by the coaches. But I did have a characteristic that would distinguish me; I was tenacious, and I practiced hard. I always followed the coaches instructions closely, and took practice seriously. This earned me playing time in the games. I was the guy the coach would send in when he wanted to yell at one of the starters. He knew I wouldn't make a complete mess of things and he could berate the star for a bit, then send him back in.

    I understand practice.

    Dave, you got to be kidding all of us. You throw into your little box and you say you do not hit the diamonds. Then Heavy one of your heroes tells that without proper instructions you could be doing it all wrong, and you believe him, just like you everything the great fiction writer the madprofessor tells you.

    You're the best so-called DI out there in your mind. But you forgot a few things that you should have been paying very close to.

    Looks like you hit the diamonds with this shot, now doesn't it?



    For some odd reason, you only see what you want to see, and hear what you want to hear!

    Also, please note the OBVIOUS, as seen easily since you use different colored dice, that the green die starting out on the left ends up on the right, and the red die, starting out on the right end up on the left.

    If your dice are switching positions, do you really think you are on-axis or that what you think are PFH's meet the definition of PFH????

    ****Dave, go back to my comments at the start of your PFH thread. I think this is very important, as it gives VISUAL PROOF that what I am stating in PFH is true.

    The above-shown toss is much better evidence that what Linaway says is true than any of the bullshit the on-axis crowd is trying to sell.

    Idea- have one of the craps-fest blockers advise us how to bet this toss.

    Actually
    Dave

    After adjusting the light, it took you an additional 30 seconds to set and throw the dice. That in my opinion seems a bit long, and if you did that in a brick and mortar casino you would draw the attention of the suits. You need to get that down to 10 - 15 seconds.

    Your toss looks fine, wish there were more continuous tosses which would provide the viewer additional information so to analyze your toss. One toss doesn't say much.

    It would helpful too if you informed, audio, the viewer what dice set you'll be using the grip etc.. Finally your videos need to concentrate in one area, the toss but not from behind a side view would be better, the landinding, the dice set/grip, and you need more illumination, as your video are to dark.

    Don't give up.

    You have a point.
    SR - in that case you made your point.

    Go to Heavy' S board. I put up a post called Six Seconds. That is the time it takes me to launch the Dice after receiving them. Heavy said he takes 5 seconds. Do not judge my filming time.I was purposely waiting .
