( actually, I wrote 2 books...the first one was on blackjack )
I have a friend who fishes in bass tournaments and has won a lot of money , boats and all kinds of stuff
He "LEARNED TO WIN"
"the more I practice the luckier I get"
No comparison, bass fishing is a learned skill.....and time on the water is the key to success. Not necessarily so with random chance gambling games......but if it pleases you to use them as comparisons, I won't argue the point....mainly because I know it would be futile.
In most things I agree, but I remain a skeptic that practice at craps helps any.....I could be convinced with actual demonstration, but that has not happened, and I doubt it ever will.
actually time on the water is not the key , time on the water is part of the practice
session, more importantly is to learn where your prey spend their time
what structures they frequent , what water temperatures they prefer , at what depths
on a given lake those teperatures will be found , on and on and on
The anglers who learn and practice that stuff have greater odds of winning
It's not much different than winning at craps
Learn , practice , win
Learn , practice , win
craps is no different
Where have you gone to see a demonstration by a truly skilled player
What do you think the time on the water is for......doing just what you outline here.
I believe I probably hold the upper hand in the competitive bass fishing category here James.....since I taught my son almost everything he knows about competitive bass fishing, and he just happened to win the U,S. Open a few years back!
Yes but can he throw 5 hard 8's before a seven or easy 8???
I raised a smart kid, he don't frequent the casinos like his dad.
Utilizing this information, anglers are on the prepared path to success. They can expect to catch some fish. (Hope they are walleye).
Utilizing the same type of learning and practicing for a game of chance dependent on the tumbling dice, you can expect some wins and some losses. (Hope the wins are larger than the losses).
For me, its the same old same old, with confusion abounding between skill and chance.
We simply have alternate ways of seeing things, and that is perfectly alright.
The confusion between skill and chance is exactly why some people never even explore the possibility,
My attitude has ALWAYS BEEN if someone can do something beneficial by accident
I can learn to do it on purpose , all I need is to FIND OUT HOW he did it and work to make it happen repeatedly
To my way of thinking , to see someone do something even only once
and say it can't be done , to me is beyond ludicrous
I know that , if I can do a thing by accident one time , I can , by finding out why that
happened I can , thru practice duplicate that , time and again
That is exactly where I am , thanks to the help from Sydney
"ANYTHING A PERSON CAN DO ONE TIME , THRU PRACTICE, CAN BE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>DUPLICATED<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
You left the impression with many that all you have to do is go fishing a lot and you can become very good at fishing , I was simply stating to be really good there is a lot of things that go into winning other than just practicing
There is a lot of , "INFORMATION" a person needs to be a winner
Learn , practice , win in fishing is a good model as well as in craps
there is not much in the world more random than fishing
I am sure you taught your son , "everything , "YOU KNOW" know
I would venture to say that it would be a stretch to say that you taught him
"EVERYTHING" he knows , he has probably learned some things beyond that
He was offered thru the love of a father an "ADVANTAGE" that many people
never have , a mentor who cares and has the "KNOWLEDGE" to pass on
I too was fortunate to find such a mentor , "SYDNEY" who taught and trained me
and set me on a path in the game of , "CRAPS" an advantage that I might otherwise never have had
Your son has been given a great advantage , I am sure he is very grateful
to have such a man in his life
Based on this, and many, many other posts, I think the forum should have a new section: Hall's Philosophy of Life. That way we can concentrate on craps.
You would do well to explore Philosophies in addition to what ever if any you presently
practice , it is plain to see what you are utilizing now are doing you little if any good at all
The view of craps that many of you on this board hold and discuss are so
impractical it would pay you to pay attention to something other than what you spout over and over
LEARN SOMETHING develop a winning game
It was a simple comment yet you twist it to say I'm doing something wrong in my life.
Who the fuck are you to judge anybody?!
Only to someone like you who wants to twist or make up things in your head to suit whatever false premise you want to put forth.
And what Us open was that or is that just one more claim to fame?
You better read OAP last post above after all his son won the US open!
