    I sure as hell am not saying you have to practice that is up to you, everyone should play
    how they want...

    But here is different, you are giving us all this information and since i have the same information
    it is not new to me, but what is new, and what i have talked to Linaway about is unless that information
    can be used to change the results, what value does it have??????

    This idea that dice go off axis more than they stay on is fine, but you have to be in group 2 more than
    67% of the time to be a consistent winner at the table... and since 67% reflects ( more or less) a random
    result, and you say all shooters are random.....

    HOW ARE YOU GOING TO WIN??????

    A couple three years ago playing a sit down short table at the Island in the UP. I hit a hand for 7 tosses, Point was 4 but I hit 6 three times in a row landing the dice right in the pocket below the pyramids. I collected the first one and let the other two ride and collected then, but the dice landing was really cool. Like setting the corner edge into the corner and tumbling straight out.
    It was fun to watch till mr spoil sport #*!% showed up. Later I did manage a long streak looking for the pocket/corner again. Just another lucky roll.

    The reason i parked this experience here is I isolated my weakness with a low short throw from sit down. It was all elbo and release. Was a fun time I cannot duplicate standing at a 16? foot table.

    Most shooters won't go near a 16' table.

    With my UH toss I will shift weight from my right foot to my lead foot( left) when I execute my toss.Disvovered my results are better and smoother if I initiate my shoulder moving forward a split second before beginning my toss. Toss seems better balanced.

    You have too many moving parts in your toss. Only thing moving on my UH shot is my right or left arm depending on which side of the table I choose to shoot from. Pivot point is the rotator cuff. My biggest problem is placing odds where they aren't in the way of my hand especially when they get over $375.

    The more moving parts the more likely this will happen.

    Nice post.My UH shot has a very low trajectory and it is necessary to have my weight shifting and a couple inches shoulder movement.Now if I shot an UH lob style toss then no there would be less movement

    No lob in my shot. They're always well below the rail. You're making a simple task of tossing two cubes weighing less than an ounce too complex.

    After your post 27, I went to the practice table and made a couple practice tosses to see how much movement I had. Both were 4/2 and never got over 6" off the deck. 14' table from SR1.

    Most shooters don’t take a tape measure to the casino. :)

    If your friend asked you to kill them, would you? Theres a lot of contextual modifiers, but I want to keep the topic pretty general in case someone has a "no, under no circumstances would I ever kill a friend" viewpoint.
