    Any advice for playing with a partner to maximize profit? We are good buddies, like minded, and stay away from the "don't" Thanks

    I can think of only one reason to play with a partner, other than a silent one: to employ some sort of hedging strategy while appearing not to, perhaps in order to get more comps. The obvious choice for such a ploy is a doey-don't, which some houses do not even allow for who knows what reason, but since you and your teammate are both don't-averse I'm afraid I am of no assistance to you.

    OK, while waiting for resources I just thought of a second reason to team up. If all of your team members are successful dice influencers then you will get a higher ratio of "good shooters" per round than if you were playing solo. Somewhat of a corollary: any non-DIs on the team can "run interference" for the DIs, occupying spaces so as to give their brethren clear landing zones.

    harrythewit,

    Yes, a list of DON'TS:

    1) Don't arrive Together, including @ the Table & Casino

    2 ) Don't leave Together, including @ the Table & Casino

    3) Don't be Seen Together, as Cameras are everywhere

    4) Don't chat with each other @ the table

    5) Don't bet exactly the same way, but at different levels

    6) Don't bet minimums on all other players, but your partner & yourself

    7) Don't obviously get more excited when your partner hits,than when others hit #'s

    8) Don't be afraid to walk away with a profit

    9) Don't do anything to alert the Casino that you know your partner

    10) If one of you is a better Shooter, make the bigger bets on that one

    Best of LUCK, as despite what the Nay-Swayers say, it Does help

    1) If both of you are planning on making place bets on the 4/10 for less than buy amounts try to figure out a way to split that action so one of you buys the 4 and the other buys the 10.

    2) One or both of you position yourselves as a blocker to keep the landing spots clear of chips if that's feasible. If one of you plays SL1 and the other SR1 or want to play side by side that obviously isn't going to be possible.

    LID,

    No one has to worry about you posting advice, your every Post provides counter CRAPS advice, do you work for a Casino, or have you worked for a Casino?

    Wow eagle, that sounds a bit paranoid. At the Golden Nugget in AC, we've often openly play together. The dealers never seem to care (we do tip generously). Your point #10 is right on the money - go with the hot hand.

    Exactly what I was thinking - we can each go heavier on different bets. Same loss exposure but bigger winning potential. Thx

    Would only note 1) the advantage on buys also applies to lays, though being don't averse you probably don't care about that, and 2) the advantage of increased upside potential for the same risk could be realized simply by pooling resources, though obviously not on the fly as that would entail one of the partners not actually playing.

    the casino doesn't care if you have a best friend at table or not.
    nonsense to all the myths , total nonsense.

    and if you two keep winning, not only will the casino invite you back, they will shower you with room comps, food comps, gifts, anything that you two keep coming to play at their casino.

    casinos love winners, its their best advertisers.

    what they hate, are sore losers, people who slow up the games, people who try to bend rules.

    go with your buddy, bet however you want, together, against each other, don't make a difference, dice don't discriminate against anyone or any betting style, the house has the built in edge, they don't care either.

    win some good money, take out the wife and kiddies, go back and win some more, donate some to charity, what goes around comes around, maybe you and your buddy will have 10 winning sessinos in a row.

    good luck, knock em dead and don't forget to report back.

    harrythewit,

    Casino's Protect their Chips just as players attempt to protect their $$$.

    That's one thing that all Craps Players ought to be aware of & consider, during their play.

    You can call a list ""a bit paranoid"" but once you & your friend win consistently, watch things @ ""Golden Nugget in AC,"" change.

    harry, if you are a black chip player only, and win consistently, like visit every week and clean up 50 grand, the casino will take a look at you, and maybe even watch you.
    if you are a 10-15 dollar player, who might go every month, and gamble 2 grand over a weekend, the casino isn't worried how much you win or how many friends you have at the table that are winning along with you.
    paranoia is deep set in many gamblers minds. The world is their enemy, anything they can blame for losing they will.

    All depends on where you play.

    The small tribal casino's are much more protective of the money on the table because
    the play on those tables is limited. A $2000 winner that comes in often is noticed,
    at Monte Carlo you would not be.

    If your shot is consistent you will be noticed not because you seem to be good, but because
    your different, then if your winning and different...well it makes sense they would take a
    look, if you and I were the pit boss we would to.

    The vast majority of the casino properties really dont care much, they know they will win in the end,
    the others that will react to different players...well you just have to move along to the next casino.

    If you get hassled which is going to happen now and then just be nice and move on.

    We ran into a craps DI team from Connecticut recently who specialize in the Yuri grip. They not only impressed me but also Barney with their craps play and money. Barney is in fact dating one of them (Shirley). She's a bit of a sourpuss compared to her partner Mary but it doesn't seem to bother Barney one bit
