    No interest in It. I can play craps about every where I travel to. Any vacation time I much rather spend taking grandkids somewhere like the gulf and other places. Sure there is more than just gambling in Vegas but long way to go for things to do that isn’t what I would prefer to do.

    I see you are trying to make some point about gambling for a living by calling it income. But because say some could live off 100k a year not all can. Sure anyone could probably live off that but everyone has different lifestyles and such. It’s judt another way to argue to prove TDV wrong since he says no one is playing for a living.

    I can't help but wonder if he is listed as a
    professional craps player with the IRS.
    We should as Tabletop.

    TOP

    I have asked James several questions about the game and the answers
    I got back were by far better than any I have seen from Demango,Liman
    TDV and for damn sure Edward...I know two people that saw what James
    has to offer.....I have never seen anyway say anything about Edward and his
    questions of me show his knowledge is slight if any......

    Now, no question one can make himself a better player without classes. but to be honest most them see or model what they do or how they shoot after some one that
    has taken them.....

    You cant learn to beat the table if you have no idea where to start.

    If you gave someone a lesson for money or PIK that is also taxable income.

    You're the one who originally interjected the IRS into this thread.

    I feel for you little buddy that was a few days ago and dementia is such a terrible disease. Those who have it never know.

    Have you ever asked the question of a person you have seen have ONE OF THOSE ROLLS , "what must happen , what must I do to finish the game money up?" Can you answer that question?? . I asked that many times to several people , an answer came up several times , then I put the math to that answer , it amazed me , first how small the advantage the house has and how little you have to do to reduce it. The strange thing is how much they can give away to get you on the table , they say to you , "THERE ARE ELEVEN TOTAL POSSIBLE NUMBERS YOU CAN THROW that's the 2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11 and 12 If you will play we are going to give you ten of those eleven numbers we want only the 7 and if you bet then roll any of the other ten numbers we will pay you plus odds , they give you ten of the eleven numbers keeping only the seven and beat you to death . It's not like they are taking ten of the numbers and giving you only the one . It amazes me that with all that so few people can FIGURE OUT HOW TO WIN once in awhile . Answer the question for yourself , WHAT MUST I DO TO BE ABLE TO BEAT THE casino? instead of people trying to figure out how to make it work they continue to dwell on every reason why they can't . They never look at the TWO THINGS they must do to win .

    Well that isn’t totally true. What if you play the Don’t or just lay numbers.

    So the casino always takes the 7 and gives you all the other numbers. The statement you make is not true unless you play right side. Then again you dont play 4 of those numbers anyway what happens if one of those horn numbers and you don’t have a bet does that bring you 2 rolls closer to a seven.
