    When facing a real big foe...it's a great feeling to kick him in the nuts and walk off with his girl.

    Is there a flip side to that? :)

    Like Chico Marx said...' Today I'll lose, ,tomorrow I'll win.....I sure thing isn't any fun.

    I guess YOU getting kicked in the nuts and your girl walking off with the guy with all the cheques would be the flip side.

    The game does have a lasting attraction....and I guess that attraction is different for everybody.

    the same things that attracted me to the craps table 40 years ago are the same things that are edging me away from it these days.

    a reason I so much more enjoy a bubble when found with decent odds

    Craps is the only game I know as a dumbass that I can handle the dice myself and create my own outcome. That alone makes it very interesting to me. Yes, I know this is over simplistic!

    This is Barney,

    I like the craps very much. It brings me the greatest of pleasures and excitements. I enjoys the clinking of the dices and the chatter of casino personages. Although I have never played the craps, I know I will receive most pleasurable outcome when the LID is winning at the craps.


    Thank you very much

    TY,

    In his mind, Harley has the poop on everyone, and will be sicking the authorities on (1) $eE$ for taking pictures of him at Caesars, (2) SR for taking pictures in any number of different casinos, and (3) HRR for, I assume, collecting $$ from students who train with him without having the proper license for doing so.

    This is a 3rd grader style attempt to get even with people you do not like.

    Get on with your life man. Get a job, earn a few bucks, find a place to live, stay away from women (this saves $$) and use discretionary funds to take something more than pictures or security reports out of Caesars.

    That is not a nice thing to say Mr Orange House. I like both the women and the goats very much.

    Thank you very much

    this sounds like something someone living in texas would say.

    I hope you only have kids with one of the two listed above.

    KJ - wow, the reason I play is the same! My dad loved the game and went to Vegas 7-8 x’s year. Sometimes he and I would play at home with two cardboard boxes on each end and a game cloth. He would talk strategy with me I was about 10-12. He always rolled a hard Ten and tried for a soft landing.
    So, every time I step up the a table is a tip of the hat to my dad. I can sense him sometimes saying, “where’s your odds boy!” Miss him a lot.
    For me, I love the atmosphere of like players who make good bets, are respectful, tip the dealers and walk away win or lose having had a good time.

    Very nice recollections Fitz. Wish I had discussed details of the game better with my dad. He took it very seriously, and as I recall, he managed to do very well at the game.

    My memory never was very good, and is getting worse with age :confused:, but I do recall at least THREE occasions where dad came home from Vegas (actually one time it was the Bahamas, before Atlantis) and bought himself a new car!

    Once a Caddy, once a Continental and the other, his last as I recall, a Thunderbird.

    This is not to say he did not lose at times, he did, but my recollection is that he knew how to take them for a big win when the dice results allowed for it.

    I learned the game from him when maybe a little bit older than you - I was probably 13 or 14, but what I really regret is NOT remembering how dad played. When at Vegas with him as a new adult, he had a killer session where the $100 he gave me to play with turned into ????? - wish I could remember, but it had to over $1500. I distinctly remember that he was always dressed to kill when at play, and was a fabulous conversationalist with the dice, forever calling for that "three and a pimple" or "biggest point in the joint".

    A game of , "LUCK" , impossible , "LUCK" is an invention of fools who fail and need some excuse , to save their self image .

    I do not BLEED money , I learned the , PROCESS for winning

    Those who do not learn to win are in the majority , that's what keeps the game alive for us in the minority

    The MAJORITY have always been the mediocrity , People are fighting for $15 an hour minimum wage while others earn billions
    The top 10% of earners pay nearly 80% of the taxes

    they believe bank craps is a game of luck ? , "LUCK" does not exist , it is a crutch for the non hacker , the sooner people learn that , and LTW the better off they will be
    Only to the untrained , craps is a negative expectation game game

    NO SKILL INVOLVED? SILLY , ABSOLUTELY SILLY

    LTWOQ is good advice , to play and continue to lose is an exercise in futility unmatched by few others

    "LEARN TO WIN OR QUIT" is good advice
    For those who believe in LUCK there may BE NO HOPE
    Gamblers may be among the most superstitious people in the world

    you are not your own judge as to whether your own advice is good or bad...

    your utter failure to understand why that might be or that one such cause is that others might have different beliefs and objectives than your own affirms the long island man's recent observations:

    whhizzz!! zooomm!! right over your head...​

    your craps delusions along with your apparent ones regarding other random events are your own responsibility.

    if funghall had 1/20th of the luck he claims him and his posse have at the tables, a casino would have offered him a job long ago to run their casino, anyone who figures out how to beat the casino at their own game would be a top salary casino employee.
    and if he proved he could beat a craps table consistently , casino operators all over the world would be paying him consultation fees in the six figures.
    in reality, hes nothing more than a shitkicker with his 42 dollar betting.
    guaranteed his palms sweat when hes on a table and has 50 dollars in play.
    his online persona is nothing more than a coverup for his low end don't know a fucking thing about this game talk a big gamel,

    his postings would be comical if it wasn't so sad how delusional he really is.

    Houston may have a problem, but mesa has a mess.

    that should be his new handle, Mesa's Mess.
