    The title of this thread should read as follows:

    'tain't no superstition!

    Please forgive me.

    After consulting with my grammar coach, another revision is required:

    'Tain't no superstition!

    There. We all feel better now, no?

    When I was still a teenager an older gentlemen told me the definition of that word and it had noting to do with craps ;)

    Last night I had a guy believing that if the bubble machine heard the call from the live craps table it would roll the same number next roll. I was right 1 out of 1 and made him a believer.

    While I've heard of many Craps superstitions, the one that ultimately seems true is when somebody new comes up to the table and buys in when a game is in session.

    If the 7 doesn't roll right after the buy in, it's usually in the next 3 rolls.

    Many times when somebody buys in when the game is in progress, I feel like screaming at the guy "Do you not have ANY manners? You are ONLY to buy in when 1 of 2 things happens - either the shooter rolls a 7, or the shooter rolls the point."

    But, I bite my tongue, don't say a word, and hope the 7 doesn't show. I'm too stupid to take down my bets, but next time I will!

    It's not a superstition, I have witnessed this hundreds of times, and a 7 has ALWAYS, followed a midroll buy-in. One time it took 43 rolls, but sure enough, there the SOB was, "7out". :) Never fails! :D WTF is wrong with people? :cool:

    When it gets sticky is , when a number becomes , "PAST DUE"
    I have heard that (when that does occur the , "7" , will show 88,8% of the time , on the next roll)<<<<
