    From the very first time that i hit a pool ball, i was hooked. A wonderful feeling of accomplishment when you can effortlessly run rack after rack. Same thing with tossing dice with precision. A feeling of accomplishment , KNOWING that you have executed a task flawlessly. I think that my synopsis speaks for the majority of Di's. Only difference is that perfectly executed pool shots gets you the money. Perfectly executed Dice tosses can get you BUSTED! Especially if you have the "Dave" mentality. Guess that's what led to my most recent demise...... The "Dave" mentality. Thinking stellar tosses will bring success. Guess anything Craps related is believable when you only bet $5 bets & only play five times a year & toss 101 roll hands tossing into a wooden box, perched on top of a shabby looking bed!

    In pool, the balls are round, in craps, the dice are square!

    Well if dice were round, it would take a lot more time to lose our money

    Craps is timing. Obviously other factors come into play but in a general sense it becomes were your numbers hitting when you were there?

    2 days ago took my $60 to the bubble and from the very start..it was nothing but 2's, 3's and seven outs. Worked the $60 down to $8. The guys on either side of me went bust, each losing several hundred playing across the board. About 3 minutes after they left, it happened...the guy on the other side got on a roll. 6's and 8's, points hit (5 in a row), come out 7-7-11-7. In 20 minutes I got back to $50....he 7'nd out. Left with $50 (down $10) and considered myself lucky (as compared to the two guys who left just before losing several hundred).

    With the way they were betting with progressions....they would have been up a few hundred.

    Timing. Not much more. Had I walked on the bubble with $10 just as he started rolling...I walk with a nice win. Timing.

    A good betting strategy and avoidance of sucker bets gives you some time to wait for a roll to happen. Sucker bets chew up bankroll.

    I miss playing the bubble, wish Harrahs would put one in here. They only open one table most of time, and it gets too crazy for me. Nice come back.

    I need a hug! Actually, screw the hug! Just need 50% of the money that i pissed away, & screw the motherf.....ng hug! Lol. Admittedly so, i am SUPER aggressive in the betting department. When those dice start flying in perfect unison, i cannot contain myself. The better they fly, the MORE i bet. HUGE mistake.

    can't argue with "timing" other than it's just another word for "luck"

    There is more to it than timing, you have to have a good working knowledge of how to bet. Then you need the bankroll that will let you weather the storms.
    If you play craps all of the time there are so many stupid things that you see when at the tables. But one of the really stupid things I see all of the time happens with the so-called DI's where they have been brainwashed into thinking that they can't bet on what everybody now calls the random rollers!
    One of the big mistakes that these so-called DI's make is playing with all of their so-called buddies at the wrong time of day when they tables are full.

    They also think that their buddies can bail them out of a hole that they dug by betting way over their head. Guess what it doesn't happen, so they lose.

    "How to bet"....

    If it's luck and short term variance, then what does it matter? Either your bets are hitting or they are not.

    How does one proclaim the knowledge or "skill" of "how to bet" when that person is making upwards of 25% house edge Fire bets and ATS bets?

    Why don't you articulate for the board this "betting strategy" that you profess works for you...

    There are no stupid bets on the table if you are rolling them.

    Yeah...that's luck.

    Big deal. We all experience that.

    That's what makes you think you know more than others?

    True...and I'm skeptical of the claim that someone plays these stupid bets religiously and is ahead of the curve. I guess I could walk in to the casino for the first time in my life, play the fire bet and win $10K....that leaves me with a lot of leeway to burn thru 10k continuing to play the sucker bets.

    Until the 10k is gone I guess I can continue to say I've beaten the sucker bets.

    You don't have win or loss limits of any kind? I suspect with being up $3,000 that you were hitting numbers left and right. My question to you would probably be what the hell did you want to win before you say color me up???!!!

    There are sucker bets hit everyday, I could show tax forms but you would just write that I made them up.


    I don't want to or need to show what I take off the tables playing these suckers bets. You say show me how you win, and I say why would I. I still hunt for gold in the desert and if I find some I keep my mouth shut. The same thing goes for the tables, I will not post the tables I like to play on or the times that I play.


    You say there is no betting skills that anybody has, we are all just stupid players and we all should be losers like you. I say that I only play on tables that have those type of bets for a very good reason, I hit them. Call it being lucky or anything that you want to, I say that luck has a lot to do with it, but some players make their own luck.


    You play bubble craps for the fun of it and I find no fun in gambling, I want to puke every time I hear someone say that line. I read everything I can about the game and casino management, you just go to your one machine and play bubble craps. I play craps all over the city you stay at one casino, playing for what you call fun, losing a few dollars or winning a few, for you it's all about killing time.


    I hate the casinos, and need to know how they run them, you don't care! I hate all of the fiction that is written about the game and have no reason to lie to anybody about it, you think I'm picking on these guys that write it and have a cult following, I have posted hundreds of videos showing what the dice really do, and you have done nothing but say they is no way anybody can win at craps!


    I have spent way to many hours trying to figure out how these cheep dice are effecting the game, you have done nothing but run your month saying there are none. You say that if there were these cheep dice in the casinos that you and everybody else would shut down the tables by taking so much money off the tables. I tell it like it really is, the casinos would stop your play if that was happening.Yes, TDVegas for some reason you want to protect the casinos by what you write, that at times don't make any sense if the guys go back and read your old post. Unfortunately Where I'm at in Fla. Right now I have the worst internet there is and it's driving me nuts.


    So there is no way that I'm going back to a lot of your post to show everybody what I'm writing about your posts, maybe some of the guys will go back a read some of you older post to see what I'm writing about. A lot of your time lines don't add up, so once again do you work for the casinos?
