    Well.....I started out the way I always do.....Ordered #25 at the Golden Dragon for lunch.

    Than I went to the craps table. There was no one there and I asked the crew if there was a reason the table was empty. They said they just opened it up; was a 10 dollar table.

    I asked for a marker and threw down a couple hundred to get started. I got the dice and said these feel brand new...they were clear and edges were very sharp. They said they just opened them up.

    I proceeded to play and won absolutely nothing; before you knew it I was down almost the entire 200. I was hoping to get my marker fill soon. Eventually some people started coming around and playing. The dice got back to me quickly. My craps internet friend, that I have known for years and never met, is someone I call the Wizzard of Kansas. He knows more about dice influencing and dice properties than anyone I know ; has studied the dice for many years. He is an electrical engineer and has built many contraptions to aid in dice influencing; he builds them and sells them on demand and does not advertize. He knows that I think dice setting is Ka-Ka and he tries to convince me. He told me to use a particular set and I always do....we call it the 64 brothers.

    I used that set and rolled and rolled and rolled. I could not 7 out and was getting the feeling of invincability...you know how that is.
    The casino is at your mercy....you know it , the dealers know it, and the box knows it. You cannot lose. I started betting for the dealers, first all across and then the army march, player control. Then something happened on the army march that has only occurred to me a very few times. This happened during the course of my 30 plus minute shoot. I put 2 dollars on the 10. I hit the 10. We move the bet to a 5 dollar 9. I hit the 9. We moved the 9 to a 12 dollar 8. I hit the 8. We moved the 8 to a 24 dollar 6. I hit the 6. We moved the 6 to a 50 dollar 5. At this point I asked the dealer, "when I hit the 5 do you want the money or a 100 dollar 4. " He said hed rather have a sure 100 dollars than a maybe nothing. I called him a pussy and told him I will control the bet. We laughed. I hit the 5. I told the dealer to buy the 4 for 50 and drag the rest. I did not make the 4.

    During the middle of the shoot I had a point of 4 and of course I knew I would make it hard. I bet a 10 dollar hard 4 and hit it.

    I left the table after an hour and needless to say made back all my early losses and was well on the plus side. The usual applause and cheering followed and the dealers were very thankful.

    It doesn't always happen this way, sometimes I lose.

    What happened during my 3 hour stay at the casino is why people enjoy going. The experience, when it is going well, is hard to beat.
