    the games are different people are dealing with different variables
    all of which can be overcome to varying degrees
    in craps much like golf people learn to become successful to different degrees
    you seem to be of the opinion in craps it is all but an exercise futility

    let me rephrase that IT SEEMS LIKE you think the game of craps is a game no one can beat

    Mike Trout and Bryce Harper are lucky at what they do. So are Clayton Kershaw and Jake Arietta.

    On the other hand, Frank, Dom, Sharpshooter and Heavy are highly skilled.

    No wait, even the baseball players are skilled..

    Something that makes you say Hmmm..........

    Training sounds much more involved than practicing. It implies mental as well as physical activity leading to prowess at your game of choice.

    If not on pyschogenic meds, why practice at or train for a random, unpredictable event?

    it will help you find out it's not what you might think it is
    so zero hours and no training
    answers a lot about the negativity but then I suspected that

    am I the only one reading this shit?

    this poster has either been paid by some group for whatever reason to post here, or his doctors seriously need to address his medication list.

    NOT THAT UNUSUAL:


    sure, I guess anyone can take a few lessons and walk up and kill the craps tables.

    someone help me, this poster is clearly deluded.

    theres no way he believes any of this stuff he posts, he is most likely doing it deliberately to see how much shit he can stir up.
    as a matter of fact, I doubt this poster has spend more than 10 minutes at a craps table his entire life.

    Bingo, "this poster" is a poser, also known as a hoser. Probably another Russian hacker, just having fun and emptying vodka bottles.

    nonsense.
    up against a professional (unarguably there are some) bowler he or she will defeat me 10 out of 10 trials or given enough trials maybe 99.9% of the time...
    ...up against a professional (arguably there are none) craps player i will win about half of the time...
    nonsense
    a professional basketball player (unarguably there are some) will defeat me 100% of the time in games...
    ...a professional craps player (never mind there are none known) will better me about half the time...
    well here you are being facetious and i grant you the sarcasm but "throwing two cubical items 8feet 8 inches" is not a sport

    between
    where did you get bowling out of describing rolling a golf ball on a green
    had a few have you ?
    but you got a bit confused golf with bowling
    basketball player would wax you
    the golf pro would own you I don't know how good you are at craps , I would guess from some of the posts
    probably about like the majority on this forum , struggling to raise enough for one more bet
    can't win and can't quit seems to be the story among the majority on this forum

    just keep doing what you are doing the casinos love you
    no threat just keep poring money on the tables
    they see you coming , you throw your money down , they keep picking it up
    the day you learned your best betting strategy is the best you will ever be
    there is no getting better you take what fate gives you LUCK RULES YOUR GAME , VARIANCE , when some skilled shooter provides
    OAP said earlier today you are still net positive
    couldn't be much
    most of the guys on this forum are struggling to control losses
    guard their BANKROLLS
    it would be funny if it wasn't so sad
    I know some say it's a hobby most would be money ahead to go out , spend thirty or forty thousand buy a boat and take up fishing

    The claims are so off the wall IMO...the only way I could remotely be convinced is actually witnessing this prowess. Beyond that, it's trolling.

    I assume you wear blue with red/yellow?

    Koko MO and jo
    it does imply mental and physical prowess so are you saying you are not up to it ??
    you can't handle it?? too stressful ?? too much to remember??
    you just want to trust to LUCK??
    how about the bubble slot ?? bingo??
    you winning at craps ?? net positive for the year so far??

    you were talking earlier about money talking
    and bull shit walking
    how about it
    you walking or talking?
    what's it worth to you to see what I do ??
    hell I'll show you what I do
    I'll show you how and tell you why
    I'll even show you how to be net positive on a craps table
    I know your buddies on this forum would never believe that anyone could do that
    but then what do they know??
    they know the math and THE MATH says you can't expect to win
    but they must think they can or they would quit
    which is it ?? can they ??
    or can't they
    are you talking or are
    you walking TD?

    You want me to pay you?

    You're kidding, right?

    What about all your talk of the guy who saw you losing at the tables years ago and took you by the hand and imparted his great wisdom to you free of charge? He took you out, showed you DI, Showed you how to win.

    I'm not even looking for that. All I want is to watch the master work his magic from afar. I have no wants or desires to know how it's done...only that it gets done.

    I never remember you saying he charged a fee.
