    There are many guys that have practice tables around Las Vegas. Some of you may recognize this table as the second table that was at Harley's house but wasn't his just like the one that he walked away with that we are still trying to get back.

    Hey is this video about DI or is it about bashing Harley for supposedly stealing a craps table. So was Harley attempting to steal that table to. It sounded like you were implying that.

    one would be led to believe with 2, not one practice tables in his house, Harley would be so good that he wouldn't need to" borrow" any more tables, would be able to afford as many tables as he wants.
    maybe all that practice really isn't helping?

    You can take it any way that you want to, the fact that guys buy practice tables has a lot to do with them wanting to win when they play craps. Some here think that you can't better yourself when playing the game of craps, so they won't even read a book on the game. Others think they know it all and are too blind to see anything that is happening on the craps tables!

    Then you have the guys that know that you can improve your game if you practice at it. They read everything they can about the game, they try different things when they are playing. And yes you even have guys that will go out and buy tables so they can't practice on it with real chips.

    They learn the pay-outs, they try to figure out different betting plans to see which ones will work for them compared to their buy-ins! A real table to practice on is not just about shooting, it could be about their betting and the dynamics when playing with friends over like in the casinos.

    Just about every stupid player that I see on craps tables in the casinos all buy-in at table-end! It could be from seeing a movie where someone is shooting from there and winning! You got to love those guys if you're playing the don't. They will throw in late bets as the shooter is throwing the dice and some times the dice will hit their money as it is flying through the air!

    Then you have them talking with their hands for some odd reason they can't keep them out of the tub.

    Then one of my favored ones for them, the shooter just had his second fifty roll and just sevened out everybody is passing the dice back to the shooter and they want to shoot when the dealer gets to them.

    Sure there is no guarantee that the same shooter will have one more good roll but I will never pick up the dice if some guy is having the one lucky night of his life. I'm there to make money and will pass the dice to him!

    I've helped a lot of the guys that have moved to Vegas to play craps with the way that they bet the game and when and where to play. So far I've only read one guys posts that gets it on this board about where he plays when he comes into the Vegas area.

    My hat is off to him, he knows who he is and I'm not going to tell you his name I will let all of you guess at it.

    Playing at the right casinos makes all the difference in the world. That is one advantage we have living here, we can just get back in our car and drive to the next casino or even walk across the street if we don't like what we see!

    I think he was talking about BULLCORN. That guy's Vegas trips sounded like chapters from a Hunter Thompson book.

    I wasn't trying to take it any way o wanted to. You posts things showing DI doesn't work then you say or show things makes one believe you are a DI. Then you go back to about Harley and stealing a table.

    Do you really need a table to work on a betting strategy? I can see a table for using for DI and practice but only if it very close to the same setup as where you typically play. The gambling world doesn't necessarily revolve around Vegas anymore. Plenty of places to play around the country these days.

    I think some of you guys makes the assumption if they don't play like you they aren't playing correctly. I know a lot of people that want to shoot from the end of the table. Some people like it over there makes it easier for them to place and lay there odds since they play the don't side. Maybe you are a professional craps player or may be not. But everyone plays craps or any other casino game for there reasons and sometimes it's the same reason as yours and sometimes not. Some just enjoy playing and it is a escape from everyday life. But when you just basically belittle people for how they choose to play is garbage.

    Then you like doing these little like that. Are you on here craving the attention of people. Or do you think making statements about betting and saying how you can't say on a open forum makes believe you the smartest most knowlegible craps player there is. I know casinos read these boards. I really don't see what they are getting out of this board. I am sure they care about your feud with Harley. It could be all made up crap for all i know, another game you guys like to play.

    Ok since you were buddies and not anymore. Is eagle eye really Harley?

    That at the time I said no, because I talked to someone that said he was eagle eye! Now I don't know maybe eagle eye will call me again and we can get to the bottom of it!

    The more you can make it like a real table in a real casino the better off you are!

    I noticed in this short clip that some of SR's tosses barely reach the back wall. I'm sure that is by design.

    I believe the expectation in a casino is that your dice roll hit the back wall and rebound. These are the rules.

    I wonder if this is not the cause of some of the 'heat' DI's often refer to?

    The craps game rules and payouts are predicated on having a random dice roll. If a DI is trying to thwart that by short throwing, I understand why the table's crew steps in.

    I loved that it goes to show what happens on this board, some think it's all about the guy that is writing the post when it's not. Craps can be played many ways some are better than others, so guys only play craps on their key boards and they just don't get the fact that we all play in the short term. never in the long term like most think! The math is for the long term with the casinos having no what to do the math on what just might happen in the short term!

    I say that one of the worst bets you can have is the pass line bet and back it up with the fact that the so-called free odds was developed to get players to bet the pass line! No casino is going to give you a good bet unless they made a mistake and if they do it's not going to take them to long to figure out their mistake.

    So with that said you have to look at the big picture and see that every casino that has anything to do with craps will give you those so-called free odds! They love them just listen to the stickman trying to sell that bet to you, are you that stupid that you think a stickman would waste is time trying to sell you a good bet?

    Stickmen are trained to sell you the best bets for the casinos the first one they try to sell you is the so-called free odds then they move on to the prop bets if you're the only player!
