very sad news never met the man but enjoyed reading his view
on the game and life
My condolences to the family.
Never met the guy, was wondering what had happened to him. Rip OAP.
Very sorry to read this. I suspected something last week during a drive by. Doing another one tonight which is saddening.
OAP was most welcoming and very forgiving. It was easy to tell he was a kind and gentle man just from the experience here. May God bless his soul. Thanks OAP for all the sincere helpful words you offered whenever you could. You had style. Have a cigar with BTL while you two laugh at us dice setters... on every toss.
Never bet out of a winning streak......you gotta ride that horse till it drops......this is one of the 10 commandments..........OAP played it perfect.
He was one of the most practical, level-headed people on this forum.
He leaves a sad void.
I am just like Midnight Skulker. I have been out for a while and just tuned in a month back to find out that Tom passed away. Now OAP is gone. I really respected those two and their posts when I first joined and value them more now that they passed away.
I wonder if the site manager or someone could put a sticky with their best and most informative posts so that everyone can have easy access to that information. This serves two-folds--a great source of information about craps, especially for newbies, and as a tribute to them so that way everyone will know who they are and their invaluable contributions to the forum.
I joined a few years back, but guys like them and MNS (I'm sure I missed a few others as well) have earned my respect with their wealth of knowledge. I was and will be grateful to have known them for the brief period of time that our paths crossed at this forum.
Yeah, but after the horse drops....ya gotta head to the cage. Lightning rarely strikes in the same place twice, so ya gotta know when to " Walk"!
I was ONCE a Master at walking....UNTIL I ( one day) had a disastrous loss. I TOTALLY lost discipline THAT day, & it cost me dearly.
I've always prided myself with my ability to walk, more -so than my ability to successfully toss the dice.
I can hear it now......Dealers: " Are you through already"? " Damn, you just got to the table, & you're LEAVING?
Top: See ya later, Alligator!
TT123......You are absolutely right about the walking part.....you need a trigger or you need the voices but walking MUST be part of your overall strategy........having said this, you MUST increase your bets wen you are winning.
Discipline and balls are the key to successful gambling....and a little luck.
Yep! If you can influence the dice....also helps. However, that's a BIG "IF"!!!
Not really , with training and a bunch of practice
a big IF becomes a littler IF and as you practice some more
that litter IF becomes a still smaller IF.
Keep practicing and all the if's will be gone and
no doubt will remain
That is a great pic 12s thanks for re-posting it he always has a smile...I still cant believe hes gone
Some other fun memories of OAP, thanks to Lid and his supper computer:
The bubble Craps research team in action,
Typical night at the table, OAP and the ladies,
OAP looking very buff, and playing with the Elite of the Craps world. Maybe the Golden Arm Tournament? Perhaps Lid can fill in the details?
A little know fact; those are 3 of his 5 wives.
...yes...beat out Hemingway.
This could be a picture of OAP back in the day, enjoying the downtown lifestyle,
Very sorry to hear about OAP's passing.
Another of the site's most informative and knowledgeable is gone but not forgotten.
Always enjoyed the way OAP could disagree yet agree to disagree in a way quite different than the shit-slinging that often accompanies differences of opinion about the game here on-line.
A man with a wide variety of experiences, now playing the game with BTL, only seeing come out sevens.
This is really sad news. Very smart craps player, and patient in explaining his views. Gone to a better place.
