    My wife and I wanted to get out today.Aftef being ingrained with election recaps, protests, snowflakes, cry zones,and those noble " therapy dogs" it was time to go out and eat and take a run to Foxwoods where I may get a hand in.
    Yes after an hour was at the exact shooting spot I had 2 months ago.Playing 2 bets.Made my pass line bet and also hit on the CO.Next point 10 - seemed out- up $5 which I will gladly take.
    It is about how much you lose which will always " Trump" out how much you win.was the 6 th straight hand which I at least made my point.Shot looked great- time to reload.

    I'm chiming in here just to state that when I went out to my car at about 7PM after 10 hours in the office today, I picked up a $20 bill just sitting in the parking lot, and I'm not even a DI.

    Love that feeling.See the heroes chiming in.Except when they play it is usually a loss bigger than say $5?
    On the way to Newport RI - stopped at Foxwoods- same table- same spot.Nice 18 roll hand but did not hit the point.Will take it.What is it now 7 straight hands without a loss? Gee if I was betting like Gargoil would have netted a nice return !

    DeMango wants to know if I recorded my rolls- NO
    Somebody chirped- did you know what your Dice were doing? Yes they landed 22" before the BW and tracked to it and rebounded 2".Oh do you mean were they on axis? Off Axis- single pitch hits- one die off axis? WTF cares! Unless it is a hardway PFH - I do not notice or care.Only concerned in dialing in a fluid shot.

    In my opinion, if you are rolling numbers, it is crazy not to get a bet or two out there Dave. Continued good rolling. Wish it would rub off on me.

    I spent 4 days in Biloxi a little over a month ago. Played lots of sessions, some winners, some losers. I wasn't really keeping track, but I was pretty sure it wasn't too much, one way or the other.

    When I was ready to leave town, I counted the money in my pocket. It was exactly the same, to the dollar, as when I got to town. That seemed impossible to me, but there it was. So my "win" was whatever I spent on food while there. However, I paid for the room with a card, so that wasn't included.

    We always go with the intention or idea to win...but what happened to you is the next best thing.

    I stayed home today. Don't know what possessed me to vacuum the couch. Picked up the middle cushion and there it was: A CHIP TREE! Who'd a-thunk it? Must have been there a while as I can't remember when corn chips were blue and furry. Does explain why my dogs have been constantly digging at the furniture before lying on it, however. Anyway, I think I'll count that as a win.

    Edit addition: Probably should have started a new thread. Sorry.

    Why doesn't somebody start a thread based on the primary question of CRAPS

    1) .If there is no betting strategy that can beat the HA / house advantage ,, and
    2) if no one can influence the outcome of the dice
    which seem to be the 2 dominant opinions on this forum

    WHAT DO WE HAVE LEFT

    we all know luck does not exist , and
    we also know that variance is so infrequent and fleeting that it makes winning almost impossible
    so then the question has to be WHAT DO WE REALLY HAVE LEFT ?

    Is playing craps simply an exercise in futility ?
    If there is nothing WE CAN DO to cause a winning roll
    if we don't have that , then what , what is left

    Just keep hoping ? , Continue losing ?

    You don't speak for all when you say "we know"....."luck does not exist." Variance IS luck. If luck does not exist, neither does variance. Yet you just said variance exists.

    Variance is infrequent? Really? You track 36 rolls and the expectations work out exactly as they are supposed to each time? I'll give you 100 sets of 36 rolls (3,600 rolls for you) and I say variance happens in every single set of 36. That's infrequent? LOL....Fleeting? LOL.
