    Baron,

    Have you read either Grafstein or our own BS777? These two guys experiences put them into a position of having forgotten more about the game than most of us know.

    Do not discount experience, even at a game of chance.

    I actual haven't read either book, and I'm sure there would be some useful information both of them. That being said, I'm also pretty sure neither author can predict who will have a good throw, and who will be "throwing scuds". I pull all bets if an Asian is throwing, seems they never win more than about 49.3% of the time.

    You keep playing around with that sarcasm, and eventually everyone will start to catch on. :)

    It's intended porpoise, is for humor, but I really do pull my bets when an Asian takes hold of the dice. Let's call it satire, same thing, but sounds more innocent.

    I played there about a two months after it opened. Only had one craps table. I'm assuming it has expanded since then?

    Hi again from , (far out) here. Yes, PTL, I play at the same casino you do. I'm male of 79 yrs so just able to toss the dice some. The big thing with me is I usually play during the afternoon as I don't like to drive at night. They call me Rich at the table among other things. I usually wear a Patriots ball cap and i bet on a lot of ways depending on how the table is running. I do positive every other trip it seems. I would be glad to join you if I'm there. I find the dealers there very friendly and sharp most of the time. I've wrote you before so you know. Roll on PTL.

    Sarcasm works every so often. If it's employed too much...the point of sarcasm or reality starts getting fuzzy.

    Two now. They are building a hotel and an extension. No idea if they'll be bringing in more tables.

    So here is a question, WHY is Craps mostly played by men? Here around my haunts - Erie, PA/ Salamanca, NY/ Pittsburgh, PA/ & Washington, PA it is mostly men.

    I wouldn't say the majority of gamblers are men - I would almost think women far out number us - but most of the women seem to play the slots.

    I've seen very few women playing Craps. As has been said, if a woman is at the table, she is usually standing beside her husband (and may or may not be playing).

    And I have to agree that women do make better dealers then men. But that's easy enough to explain - the men dealers are trying to make payouts while the cocktail waitress goes walking by!

    One of the more enjoyable times I had at a craps table was at the Union Plaza back in the 70s. Table was maybe half full, early afternoon, kinda choppy. This big group, about 5 ladies all dressed up and two guys in sports coats joined the game. It was obvious these ladies knew their way around and a craps table and seemed to be betting on the numbers that were hitting. This was way before craps academies, so I was impressed at their knowledge of the game. Most of them were making some $$$$.
    Turns out they all worked for a commodities firm in Chicago and their boss sends them to Vegas every year, for a week, all expenses paid. I decided to follow their action,and did very well. What the heck, these ladies WERE professional gamblers.

    I've never understood why more women don't play. It would seem that with so many Handsome, irresistibly charming, and polite guys, like myself, and I'm sure most of the rest of you, they would flock, to the table, right? WRONG! Women don't play because, craps players sort of BLAME the shooter, if there is a bad throw. Women are more sensitive to this brow-beating, men don't give a shit.

    No that's just a pic from a recent roadtrip. My casino deal fell thru due to lack of funds. I got way ahead playing craps but stumbled onto one of those suspicious bubbles crap machine and pissed it all way.

    LID,

    You need to strategize with one the BI's who frequent this board.

    I am hearing there might be an ABA summer seminar in the works, although I do not believe that Dan Issel will be attending. Keep your ears open, because so-called BI is more predictable than DI.

    I am heading into play today after an early day at the office, and will be using the 'bet what is showing' strategy. This might be a problem, because the only wheel barrel I have is one that attaches to the tractor. How am I going to get all the money home?

    um...no it wasn't...you just had not heard of them is all...not on any mailing lists apparently (as was i arter responding to the ad below)..."craps academies" predate the internet by several decades...though it is certainly true that the internet was the enzyme causing an explosion of them & the cause of their reaching general craps community consciousness.

    i myself in the very early, naive days (very early 1974 it musta been) had sent away for a scheme--maybe paid 10 bucks for it, a fair amount in those days...what i got back, iirc, was essentially the iron cross with of course advice to "quit while i was ahead"...lol...along with a further pitch for their mail order "seminar"
    my take on the paucity of female play is that the game is rife with crudities (even the name of the game itself) and, especially, is rife with sexual innuendo ("come", "hard 6", "hot", "box number" "box man" "pass", "don't come" "hop [dem bones]" even "horn" etc) that "turns off" some women...and never mind the resultant crudities of men often heard at the table...i even heard one say to a particularly comely lass who had just made a horn bet, "yes, you do look horny"
    <<lame, i know>>

    such boorishness and inherent semantics are maybe not the main reason for the lack of women players...but just one take onnit...
