    So there are a thousand + books on how to win at craps. It seems to me that most of them say the same thing. The best odds are on the pass/dont pass line and come/don't come bets, plus odds. This is the basis for every legitimate strategy.
    Having said that, I do think that learning different strategies gives us a deeper understanding of the game. But who wants to spend hundreds of dollars on books just to find out that most of them are the same?
    I propose we share books.
    I have three titles to share...

    -The Basics of Winning Craps by J. Edward Allen
    -The Craps Lesson by Gene Robinson
    -Beat The Craps Table by Marten Jensen

    All of my books are soft cover. So what I did was undo the book binding and copy the few pages that really matter. The pages that describe the strategy. I can emial you the pdf file if you want to trade.
    I am not looking to make money on this, nor should you. That would infringe on copyrights. But I'd be glad to trade with you.

    Well you have quite a bit of betting strategy books. If your ever so inclined to learn caontrol shooting,
    a skill I highly reccommend looking into, I recommend getting the Golden touch craps book. It explains
    the concept in a way that doesnt sound like hocus pocus. The biggest draw for me to this book is that it
    made no claim that control shooting is a perfect thing. offering instead a way to avoid sevens for as long
    as possible using battle tested methods of concepts of physics””that to me as someone who played baseball,
    bowls and other such sports which require muscle memory””made sense. More importantly it explains the
    betting systems requried to win using controlled shooting. Hope you give it a look.

    This is Komojoesph

    You guys are full of the shits. Except for the LIDs most amazing books on crap, they all will lead you down the road to needing Biden hands outs and booze. You only need two have knowledge of two things to beat the craps.

    1. Why opposite sides of dices add up to seven

    2. All throws are random but if personages toss dices from a G1 set, you have most greatest odds of ending in a G2 outcome and making a ships load of monies

    Best betting strategy I believe is regressing your bets after a hit.Lowers your risk which is most important

    all good ideas , i think the tables you choose to play on make a big difference, it may be the biggest
    difference. Even demango says that when not on here.

    LarryS; As per your question, post #25. The answer may be quite simple. This DI thing is in the realm of gamblers and not of AP's. Gamblers gamble, they bet, even a little, on almost everybody. I see this ALL the time at the tables with folks who attempt a controlled toss. They also, 9 times out of 10, use positive progressions, the Wall Street equivalent of buying high and selling low. They play at tables with no idea of the table physics which change from table to table especially their practice table. They play at times with too many others at the table. There are more reasons, though minor. Add them all up and you can see where Las Vegas does not fear them. To quote your favorite author, John Patrick, they are all "Dorks!"
