    Supperick sure is persistent. From my brief review of this site, Gamblers, and Wizard's this is about the 78th time he has posted the above stuff. Supperick seems to be super obsessive with his opinion just like Superdave is obsessed with trying to have MP or Heavy validate his craps play. Nobody need saving Supperick, it is their money.

    Well SR is shouting " All shots are luck" because the bouncing Dice will Wreck havok with all types of shots- on and off axis types of toss. So SR bring your lucky green frog or 4 leaf clover and win your pot of gold!

    You can also include me in the non-believer camp. I've decided to focus on playing smart & hoping to get lucky! When you play many sessions wherein you're tossing perfectly, but still not getting paid. ..... it's time to reevaluate. Don't think there's many with a better looking toss than mine, but looking pretty won't Get you paid. My toss will remain the same in the casinos. However, my expectations from those "beauties" (perfectly executed tosses) has certainly changed. Certainly nothing wrong with trying, though!

    DI either works, or it doesn't.

    Sometimes it's working...sometimes not.

    In other words...no different than when any other non DI player goes to the casino that day and gambles.;)

    A few people had fun comparing my practice rig to a casino table. Fine but it does serve my purpose. I was making a few adjustments to my UH and was instrumental in helping me with this endeavor. Took it to Foxwoods for a tryout. First hand PL win. Second hand a nice 18 roll 2 point effort. 76% ROI. I would grade my toss C+ mainly the fluidity was not fully there. But it will improve - Not a bad night.

    Dave it's called luck, an 18 roll hand is just a good starting point. Random rollers do them every day, without setting the dice. As a matter of fact when a so-called DI is struggling I will tell them to just pick up the dice without looking at them and to make a shot. But to put the dice where I want them to land them. It's called reading a table and knowing where to land the dice, to get on a roll.

    That little training trick shows them that they don't have to set the dice to make points and it brings back their confidence level. Your problem is always going to be that you don't play enough, thinking that if you keep practicing at home then go to the casinos once a month, does nothing for you.

    You basically are doing a crapshoot where it will go either way for you. One day your crowing about your shooting and the next time you go your trying to find something to hide behind so nobody knows that you lost your butt.

    You need to keep sending those videos out so we can see how your progressing! By the way, it helps to have another good DI there to coach you along. We had a local guy here in town that had the best looking PARR shot, the dice were always glued together in the air. But when they hit the table they would just go all over the place. We got to talking one day and I told him that I could fix what he was doing wrong. At that point he went off on me, telling me that he had a 67 roll and he didn't need any help, so be it was my answer to him. Guess what he no longer plays craps. He couldn't figure out what he was doing wrong, and couldn't win!

    Just because you have a pretty looking shot it doesn't mean a thing. You have to know why you're coming up with the numbers you are and how to fix things on the run. You also need to know how to bet the game. Just because you read some fiction on the boards or some fiction writer wrote a book and you think he is the best thing since sliced bread. It's not going to fix what you can't see happening.

    All tables are different and so are the dice that you are shooting with, what worked yesterday will not work today. One thing that I can see with you and is that you think you don't need the luck to win at craps and that is just Bullshit. There is way to many variables that you can't control at the craps tables.

    You need a sound psychological background, where nothing is going to bother you while your shooting. You need to know how to dig yourself out of that hole you just dug because you thought that you were invincible when you first started shooting and you got nothing but PSO's and short rolls!

    Craps is a game of chance and you need to know that, you can't have some fiction writer blowing smoke up your butt and telling you to make stupid bets like the $204 across. How many guys has the great madprofessor help that has done one thing and that is failing!

    How many of the guys that post on his board do you personally know and can they do what they are writing about when they post anything? The DiceInstitute was a great board when Charlie009 ran it, then along came the fiction writer and it turned into a concert review board. If you weren't reading about some concert that MP said he went to, he was posting photos of cars that weren't even his. That he was ripping off a dealers site around Toronto. Does any of these cars look familiar Dave? Well, how about the location?
