    We know who will be bringing home the gold.

    Will it be judged like diving and gymnastics?

    What else is there?

    Skill? We are talking about tossing two dice onto a table designed to randomize an already random event.

    Eleven numeric possibilities. 36 one-dimensional ways in which they can occur. 576 three-dimensional ways.

    Knowledge of the game may or may not be helpful. Same with Intelligent wagering and money management - may or may not be helpful.

    What is ALWAYS helpful is seeing outcomes that coincide with your wagers. Enough of them and you will win, possibly win big.

    Explain how this involves skill rather than good fortune. It's all a crap shoot. [2][1]

    its bad enough you spew out this shit and nonsense......but after the post about the woman taking only 4 lessons and tossing 43 rolls.......you have shit on the DI players, people who claim practicing for years on end, and now someone walks along and tosses 43 rolls after 4 lessons.
    makes the rest of the di tossing world seem like a bunch of shitkickers, at least that's how you make it look. she can do it in 4 lessons, the rest of you must really really suck. Oh wait, maybe she wears a cape?

    maybe its superwoman?
    maybe Xena the warrior princess?

    xena the warrior princess-many moons ago when I was in the toy business, I purchased a closeout of xena warrior action figures. the price was ridiculous, so I purchase a lot .20 times more than Id ever normally purchase.
    I knew it would be a hard sell, but hey, at the right price anything will sell.

    then some preacher, and I don't recall what state, maybe Georgia, Mississippi, maybe some other state down south, issued a statement about how the xena action figure portrayed women in a way that the target audience, mainly adolescent boys, should not think all women should look, mainly the big, big boobies the action figures had. so toy biz took them off the market.
    Im on vacation somewhere, and my manager tells me wow, weve been selling them faster then we can get them on the shelves.
    by the time I got home, every case was sold out, thousands(no, not thousands, maybe 1200) of them at a super reduced sale price. I should have made 4-6 times as much money on them, but I didn't know at the time what happened.
    not sure why I shared that, just thinking about female super heros or just female heros.

    At the present, I am very comfortable with where I am, and who and what I am.....but like I said before, there is always room for self improvement, and I will take you advice on striving....to become more! In truth, I already do that without advice from anyone.

    As for your confidence in your abilities, I applaud that confidence if you have it. But only you know the extent of those abilities.

    you can believe it's a crap shoot and I can certainly understand why
    with all the negative feedback some of these guys feed you and others in a steady diet
    let me tell you about another crap shoot , rolling a little ball 40 or so feet
    on a surface with several undulations and getting th ball to wind up in a hole just four and one quarter inch in diameter
    trying to figure how much break to play and what kind of speed to get the ball to the hole with just enough velocity to fall in
    that's a crap shoot
    or trying to throw a basketball thru a hoop with some 6ft 6 in. guy trying to keep you from doing that
    that's a crap shoot
    people have found a way to do those seemingly impossible feats
    then you talk about throwing two cubical items 8feet 8 inches
    yep that's impossible alright
    WOW

    If you believe there is ANY relationship between a game of skill and a game of chance, there are plenty of bridges for sale my friend.

    the real tragedy is you think that the game of craps is a game that no one can beat

    No he doesn't...he plays the game! You keep saying that, but people win all the time, if people didn't win, there would be no games, no casinos!

    In fact, I think Koko is still net positive!
