    Hi Fellow Craps Fans;

    I swang by my favorite, and one and only, Underground Craps game this past Friday. Its been open for 4 months. It is now closed. I tried not to cry.

    I asked around as to why it was closed. I got the answer and verified it by someone closely connected. So, to have some fun. I will give five reasons, one of which is the correct one. You pick one; Winners get the pride of being the smartest folks on the Craps Forum. Here we go:

    1. Two Dealers and a waitress tested positive for Covid 19.

    2. The Vice Police found it; busted down the doors and arrested everyone.

    3. The game had a run of bad luck, lost $50k in one night, and shut down.

    4. There was a stabbing after an argument between 2 players, paramedics were called; police came shortly afterwards; owners decided to shut it down as fast as possible,

    5. Lone Irish Digit hit the FIRE bet there and hell froze over.

    Let me know and in a few days, I will announce the correct answer.
    (ps my wifey said: "Good Riddance!")

    Ok, I spill the beans. Correct answer is none of the above. A professional craps player allegedly stole the craps tables so joint was forced to shut down

    Hi fellow Craps enthusiasts,

    The Answer is #1. They shut it down after a few Dealers and one owner got Covid. My inside guy says that they will wait two weeks and restart.

    I wish Barney had hit the Fire bet, but they don't offer it. I have hit the AS AT A bet about 4 times.

    Have a great day,

    this is a great fucking country.
    heres a bunch of guys running an illegal casino, meaning, no taxes are being paid, no insurance if workers get hurt, no one to watch over them, no way to dispute anything, you get the picture, but they are worried about covid,
    One would think they would just send those dealers home, and get a few non infected dealers.....I like those guys....

    Liman,

    You are probably right. But, one of the owners caught it. Two weeks of Quarantine. The logic kinda works like this. If your neighbor gets sick with covid19, you say..."pfft, it's just a cold." But if YOU get Covid19, "it's a pandemic." And, if either one of you dies; don't worry, someone will step in for you. Do you feel lucky? Punk? (apologies to Clint).

    ps. This underground Casino will re-open. They were packing in 50 people a night with a waiting list. They are wiping down(Clorox) all the equipment; putting up plexiglass shields. You still have to have a mask and gloves to play. The problem is that they need more ventilation. They can't play with the garage doors open. They are looking at installing air blowers on the roof, sucking the air out constantly. I was told it will take a week to make the repairs and cleaning.

    I do plan on going back when they re-open. I will write another trip report when that happens. Meanwhile, I am reduced to playing Hold em Poker with my family using M&M's for money. Everyone goes all in with 6-7 suited connectors. I am getting fat; My life sucks.

    Im surprised they haven't rented out some religious schools gymnasium yet, so they have a much bigger space and more breathing room. I played craps under a basketball net for over a year in Brooklyn at some yeshiva, when I visited one of the higher end illegal casinos.

    do you think in 6 months when most casinos are fully open(hopefully with a vaccine available), the illegal casino will still operate?

    +Liman,

    We did some calculations in a previous post. I estimate that they are clearing +$1-2k a night on average; call it $50k per month. $60k with food and drinks. I have seen 200 $1 beers go in an hour.

    Will it go on after the Vaccine? I will still visit this garage I am not sure I trust planes or the efficacy of the vaccine. I will still get vaccinated. Las Vegas sends me daily emails; 4 days and night free; free food, free parking, free rooms, free covid.

    Its a 15 min walk from my house. The owners play by generally accepted rules. They want to run a fair deal. They want it to be fun, but low key. Some gang kids want to play*; but they can't seem to get their name on the list. They want players like me; know the game, play within limits, and have fun.

    I hear they are trying to open this Friday with the Blowers installed.

    I might give them a week to check it out again.

    * Gang money is fast n loose and a big risk. I once saw a gang banger drop $50k on a Craps table in the MGM; His Girlfriend was falling down sloppy drunk in a string bikini and he was, at first, saying no big deal to losing money and then later, got very pissed about it. He was also blowing cigar smoke all over the table. I walked away.

    yeah, if they let gangbangers into a game, Id avoid it like a pandemic.

    don't matter much to me, me and my wife are on a somewhat quarantine. My grandson is due in a couple to 3 weeks and we are playing it safe. Only leaving if we need to shop once or twice a week for food.(cant avoid an eye surgery coming up)
    promised our daughter we wont travel and will stay in lockdown mode as much as possible, no friends, no restaurants,

    We are all hunkered down at the homestead because of how easily the virus spreads too. The LID says it is a lot like the clap, once one personage in your family gets it, it won't be long till everyone in your family has it.
