    What is considered successful sniping?

    Say in a hand that lasted 20 rolls, how many of your nimbers would you have to snipe to be considered successful sniping? And how many numbers would you have in play? And how often would you need to do this? Once a session,, once every five sessions?

    And for the #naysayers, what would you expect to see to get your attention?

    If it's REALLY sniping.....I'd say that in 1-3 rolls, ya should be hitting your number/s!

    Lol. That's not gonna happen! I don't think a good Dice Influencer rolls 8 times every time that they shoot. MAYBE 6.75 per hand, & that's "Pushing" it.

    yeah, Im being unreasonable to think any di can actually roll the dice with more consistent MONEY MAKING rolls than me.

    how bout anyone who thinks they can snipe bet like it, not like they are betting their last 5 dollars. Bet with some gusto, 100, 200 a number.

    that all depends on the , "time , effort and energy" expended ,
    in the area of TRAINING and practice

    In the game of , "CRAPS" , much as many other endeavors
    those people who win / succeed do so because
    they , "DESERVE" TO WIN---------winners do the work
    Tiger Woods' high school golf coach wrote a book and in it said
    "Tiger Woods made me look like a genius"
    In the book the coach said they went to the golf course everyday
    while the other team members went straight to the course to play
    Tiger headed straight to the practice range and worked on his swing
    with his dad there teaching and coaching
    Tiger Woods won , because he did the work
    "HE DESERVED TO WIN"

    You can do the work or rely on luck , it's that damned simple
    "LEARN , PRACTICE , WIN"
    EARN the WINS

    Yes..and now with all that practice, time and effort....Tiger Woods is playing for + million dollar wins.

    How bout Phil Mickelson on his practice round of skins with his fellow tour pros? He won't get out of bed for anything less than $5,000 per hole. He won't start at $42 to "see how it goes"....

    You continue to buy in for $42...how many decades later?

    I think we know who the skilled ones are...

    Yep and if you understood more abut the "RIGHT GAME" I would explain to you why
    $42 is more than enough to win a sizable amount with the , "RIGHT GAME"
    but any explanation would be a waste of time and lost on you
    Keep puddling and pounding those pennies on the $1 machine
    Your misconceptions of the game , tho tragic are quite amusing

    It boggles the mind why a man so ignorant about the game would pack up
    and move to Vegas so he could play more craps
    would not try to learn more about winning

    but like you say , "TO EACH HIS OWN"

    There is only one logical conclusion. After this many years...you are still not confident enough to start your wagering higher. You walk after losing $42.

    A Kelly progression started long ago and based on your ability to actually win would start you at $420 or $4,200 across.

    You lack confidence in your ability...hence you play on the $5 table along with the rest of the chuckers you so deride.

    Here is a one dollar machine player talking about confidence or the lack there of???
    interesting

    I don't have to start there , I have told you before I could start with $20 and win
    sizable amounts part of the reason you have been busted down to dollar BC bets
    is because of your lack of understanding of the game
    If you would ever get past playing the , "WRONG GAME" you would understand that
    To you I would say
    "JKDWYD" that way you won't be so confused

    I would say 1-3 rolls is reasonable but how many numbers are working? If you have all the box numbers then probability dictates you should be hitting two of every three rolls. The answer to my own question would then be somewhere north of the probability for the numbers you have working. I don't recall who said it in history but I guess it can apply to craps and would be my advice to everyone. "Recognise and seize the decisive moment".

    You're a hard marker Liman. I recall when I first joined you were much more lenient and offered a free steak dinner to boot.

    If anybody is not betting what TDV says they should be, then they should be executed, and OAP will like it. :)

    not at all, theres just too much nonsense noise here and too many morons who make ridiculous claims and statements.
    people who don't play craps more than 2 times a year searching out the lowest min tables they could find, that doesn't speak much about confidence.

    How many numbers? TWO! My reasoning for two numbers is allowing both the primary, & the sister number of a Dice Set. 3V= 6/8, 2V= 4/10, etc.

    In regards to what Liman requested....Ain't gonna happen. I think it's reasonable to expect 2-3 ten roll hands or better, per ten attempts for the talented shooter......UNLESS ( of course) it's James Hall tossing the dice.
    He's well trained, & you can expect 7-10 ten roll hands, or better per ten attempts.

    LTTLHFOQ= Learn to toss long hands frequently, or Quit!

    Some of the players on this board in their great and infinite wisdom see fit
    to expand their OPPORTUNITIES to win by taking those 24 combinations and REDUE them
    to just 10 combinations by betting only the 6 and 8 in the hopes of getting more hits
    Somehow I am having a hard time understanding how hitting fewer times in a roll
    and cashing fewer bets is going to net me a larger win . This all seems very baffling and
    counter intuitive to me
    could someone please explain to me and others on this board how this works
    I am sure there are some novice players who would also appreciate an explanation

    I will get back to you in a few days for some training, but I gotta hit the Casino today! My mortgage is due by the 15th, so I gotta extract some $$$$ from the Casino.

    My buddies.....Cleon, & Marker are waiting for me in the plane. I should be back in a couple of days!

    Gawd, I love Craps!
