    Good, lucky, random rolls are being interpreted as DI. It is what gives the farce a sense of belief in their minds.

    So it is luck and random that on certain tables and with a certain set and toss I can hit the 6 10 times out of 14-15 tries? and by the way I am taking full advantage of that knowledge.
    It is luck or random that on other tables I don't even play because I am convinced my toss will not give me any advantage at all?

    You are so full of your own shit and have your head up your ass that you need to brush your butt in the morning to have a fresh breath. Go take your brain fart pills and play your video craps.

    True, but we have pummeled both of them already this year.

    Again, "System Evolution distorts Craps" in Advanced.

    I thought I was winning because of my good looks. When I lose it is usually because someone else is shooting. By the time the dice are coming around to me, my chip rack is empty and I can not show my superiority in shooting, wagering and find excuses why my Point Seven Out was not predicted.

    I pitched for three years in Little League. I never beaned anyone, but had other pitchers claim I had. Who to believe? Now there were times where my catcher wanted me to throw one, low and inside... sidearm. The batter saw that side arm pitch coming and wanted to get out of the batter's box.

    This is exactly how some of these Craps stories go. You take some realistic information add some magic dust... cannot lose.

    I have beaned more players AT a Craps Table than I ever did pitching hardball. I might even beaned a few in the Blackjack pit when Craps was new to me. I did not shoot... I pitched them towards the other end.

    Over the last thirty years I have had better luck shooting Craps than collecting autographs of Rock & Roll artists. With the internet today you can compare notes with other Craps players. Also compare autographs with those that are... authentic on the internet. My autographs I had decided to sell, as most were stored away in a drawer... I could have faked them better.

    So, who to believe and trust? Not the "bitch" autograph dealer who sold me the Buddy Holly for $1250 in 1989. She is long gone. My money is long gone. I probably have another $3,000 in Star Wars, Star Trek, Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, etc. and guaranteed authentic. I even question my autograph, today.

    When there is money involved trust no one. Craps is Cash spelled, backwards. IF you believe that... I have a great collection of autographs. Mine included AT MY COST.

    Took a while to find this baseball-related thread but WOW, am presently watching the High School all-star classic in San Diego. 16 and 17 year old kids, the best in the country.

    My son's hitting instructor's son is starting 1st baseman for the eastern US team, rated the second best 1st baseman in the country. He is also an incredible pitcher.

    He's deciding between Liberty College and Univ Florida. Big time stuff!!

    Have not been to any other craps board myself. (edit: Oops forgot about Superrick's site, sorry) and just like the dinosaur Bubba, have never done any of the other social media stuff.

    This site has enough DI discussion for me to learn something I knew nothing about. Now perhaps I know next to nothing about it, rather than nothing.

    With my negative feelings on the matter, I'd go into the DI sites looking only to catch them hawking their lessons, thereby proving to myself, whether true or not, that the head honchos primary motive is to acquire some buy-in.

    Not just "Buy In" Money Kokomo. It gets Waaaaaayyyyy More Sinister than That. How about the Mortgage Payment for the Month/s? Car Note Payments? Drug Habits(Just Kidding), & Strip Club Habits. Certainly a slew of different areas wherein those "After Glow" fees can be spent, huh? NOT saying that ALL schools are Scams. Only stating the Obvious: BUYER BEWARE!!!!

    And you know many of these "clients" don't sound dumb by their postings but they can't see thru some shyster charging them an "after glow fee" at the tables!!??

    Almost incomprehensible. Then again, you hear of a lot of cases where people of self made status get burned by fraudsters.

    I hear the pitch...and I chuckle saying to myself "who the F is falling for this"?! These guys need to live in Vegas. It's good for your BS meter.

    Isn't just amazing how gullible some people are. I get a good laugh out of some of the scams that you read about every day in the newspapers. I just love the one here in Vegas where there is a guy that will show you how to win at craps, for a percentage of your win! I see him from time to time in the different casinos with one of his suckers, oh I mean students!

    Living in and around Vegas is a real eye opener, for anybody that doesn't have a gambling problem!

    That guy has been on this forum...or one of his cohorts. For Blackjack.

    There are also a few of these guys that hang around the Downtown casinos (why the casinos allow them to lurk is beyond me)...who hang around the roulette table offering up what the next number will be. They look for players who cover many numbers---tell him to play a number, maybe it hits, and then they want their "cut" for offering up a winner. If it misses, they look and wait for a new player or another table. There are more scams in this town than casino chips.

    Who besides me thinks SevenOut's line here speaks volumes about this game we love? Whether you are DI, Aspiring to be DI (as I am,) or simply riding the mercurial wings of Lady Luck, This game is a formidable foe we cannot resist challenging. I am fascinated by the fact that there is a way to win on any given roll, and by the fact that we actually get to handle the implements of chance. There's no other game quite like it. And whatever we do, sometimes the dice do it better. Thanks for that SevenOut.

    Tom,

    I concede you to be correct on all of the other corrections, and am happy that, in spite of my definitional errors, you know what I mean. (that club you beat me with hurt :confused:.

    Concerning the one point left above, I'd have to look back through the quick calculation I did, but since I'm too busy (LAZY), I will rely on memory....

    I believe the calculation showed that, when at 1 million line decisions, for simplicity sake WITHOUT odds, the -1.41% player would need to be within something like 14 standard deviations of the mean to be ahead of the game. How likely is this, when statistics suggest that 99% of the data falls within 3 standard deviations? Nevertheless, anything is possible, and I concede the point.

    Enough of this math nonsense.

    What do you think about the baseball talks Dave and I are having. Who are the four best teams in MLB? [1] [2] [3] [4]

    So do you just go to that certain table and bet 6? Have you quit your job yet so you concentrate on throwing on certain tables? Sounds very easy.
    With that kind of high percentage rolling of the sixes, I should be able recognize you at the tables cause you should be hopping the six every roll. Of course with knowing the certain set and certain table you will have to only hop which six you are setting for, I would think hard 6.

    its laughable to me, that someone will give someone money because they said hey, I told you to bet that number.
    These scam artists are more than crooks, they know how to pick out marks.

    I have had on several occasions other players seriously telling me I owe them some tip money because I made serious coin of their button pushing on bubble craps. One dude at GSR in Reno got in my face about it with a push and ended up on floor. Security had to check video cause he wanted to press assault charges on me. Stupid dumb shit was only betting $1 on PL for about 25 rolls and noticed I raked in a bunch after walking over and looking at my total on machine.

    I love to play Craps.
    I hate to lose.

    That is what everyone on this Forum should understand. As long as you are winning, playing Craps is fine. Once you are in the "red" there are better things to do with your hard earned money.

    I limit my losses to my $200 per month routine, as described on an earlier post. I do not limit my wins and will keep playing until I find my annual total below $200, or worse a negative amount, where I am today. Then I have to wait until the next month. Self control is the toughest challenge to overcome.

    Another is keeping off the Crapsforum...
