    yacraps, Right On with pointing the sawed off...

    BUT, the Dictionary Definition of Random is: ""Proceeding, made, or occurring without definite aim, reason, or pattern"".

    Now, considering the above, how could a RANDOM CRAPS Shooter expect to get anything but RANDOM Results when Shooting Dice on a Casino Craps
    Table???

    looks funny, and it is, but when you dont expect that kickback, whoa boy, look out.
    Ive been shooting rifles and handguns since Im a teenager.
    when I was around 30, we took the kids to a dude ranch, and I went over to the skeet shooting, they launch the clay birdies, anyway, I was given what Id call a duck shotgun, big, heavy, very old, and I didnt secure it too well into my shoulder, and lemme tell ya, I was black and blue after one shot for 2 weeks.

    and then there was the 454 casul handgun, I never expected it.......didnt hit me in face, but it kicked back so heavy it shocked me first shot.

    These are obviously random shooters, but could be part of the Saudi air defense system?

    Random results at the craps table can be very, very good. They can also be very, very bad. Recall the acknowledged world record holder (154 rolls) is a random shooter. There is absolutely nothing that precludes a random shooter from having a better -- sometimes much better -- roll than an "accomplished" DI. Conversely, there is not that precludes and "accomplished" DI from having a stinker of a roll (or even a few consecutive bad rolls).

    Where I agree with "accomplished" DIs who bet only on themselves is the following: there are obviously far more random shooters than "accomplished" DIs. By betting on far fewer shooters, the "accomplished" DI will have (significantly) less money at risk during a session; thus, his/her theoretical expected loss will likely be correspondingly lower unless he/she is making only high house advantage bets. And that's before taking into account the potential DI upside when shooting, if any.

    Random Roller, nothing wrong with your discussion above:

    However, as the Dictionary Definition of Random is: ""Proceeding, made, or occurring without definite aim, reason, or pattern"", please explain how a RANDOM CRAPS Shooter could expect to get anything but RANDOM Results, when Shooting Dice on a Casino Craps Table???

    By this, I imply that when dealing with strictly Random Rollers, one must accept the CASINO advantage on CRAPS & therefore anticipate LOSING $$$ playing
    CRAPS over any period of time.

    This guy probably throws a lot of horn numbers, so take what he’s giving you!

    I read a news story about 30 years ago of some teenagers driving around on July 4th throwing cherry bombs out of their car windows. As they turned a corner with a bomb prepared they encountered a parked police car. A kid in the back seat concealed the bomb in his pants...with suboptimal results. I opined that the story would have been enhanced if his girlfriend had been heard to remark, "Gee, it's never done THAT before!" Definitely an example of premature fulmination.
