Twelve years ago some of the best craps players in the world gathered in Las Vegas for the original Axis Power Craps CRAPSFEST. We’ve done it every year since – eventually adding a Veteran’s Day Live Casino Session with the Coaches that’s free to Active Duty Military and US. Military veterans. to each CrapsFest. This year we’re doing it again, with our “Lucky 13” Crapsfest Event. It’s coming your way in Las Vegas the weekend of November 10th – 13th. Now is the time to make plans to join the fun.

Heavy. Howard. Irishsetter. DarthN8er. That’s your coaching lineup for this weekend. We’re talking about some of the biggest names in dice control.

Join us on Friday evening for a “Dutch Treat” Meet and Greet at a location to be announced. Meet the coaches and like-minded craps players, renew acquaintances with old friends and make new ones! Hoist an adult beverage or two. Grab some bar food if you’re hungry. Afterward, hook up for a live casino session with some of your fellow students of the game – or just kick back and enjoy the sights and sounds of fabulous Las Vegas.

Saturday morning we’ll crank up training on a private table at a secret location in Las Vegas and get right to work on your tosses. In a single day you’ll complete the basics of dice control, play a live casino session with the coaches, and move into advanced dice control and betting your advantage to win. Among the topics we’ll cover:

Correct Table Positions – stick left isn’t the only spot in town! Alternate spots – alternate shots!
Correct Dice Sets and how to get there quickly! Quick Sets and Sniper Sets!
Correct Grip PERSONALIZED for you based on the physical shape of your hand.
Correct Toss for you – depending on your physical stature and ability.
Focus, Breath Control, and Landing Zone
Visualization and the Mental Edge

After a quick review of the basics each attendee will receive a one-on-one toss analysis and toss improvement plan. But don’t just come out for the personal toss instruction. You’ll learn as much or more by watching the coaches work with the other attendees.

We’ll break for lunch at midday and play a “hit and run” live session at a local casino. Afterward we’ll return to our secret location to debrief on that session. Then we’ll move into toss techniques and fine-tuning your game. We’ll cover money management techniques, basic betting strategies and more as we work toward taking your game to the next level.

Saturday’s full day session will be limited to a maximum of twelve players – and includes one live casino session with the coaches, a full compliment of seminar handouts and e-copies of Heavy’s seminar books.

Alums who have attended a previous Axis Power Craps – Crapsfest event can enroll for $695. First time student tuition is $995 and includes all of the above plus a copy of Heavy’s Axis Power Craps Seminar on DVD.

Remember, this price INCLUDES the live session with the coaches at noon on Saturday plus two ADDITIONAL live session with the coaches on Sunday. Register early because we have a limited number of slots available for both alumni and new students. Slots will be filled on a first come – first serve basis.

But wait! There’s MORE available on Sunday! Sunday morning we’ll have three different tracks to run on. Choose what you want to do for just $299. Sorry, since all of these classes will be running simultaneously you should only sign on for ONE class.

 Heavy will present a special three hour advanced Betting Strategy class at the secret location. You’ll learn about Heavy’s Trendsetter Craps system, explore the Don’ts with DarthN8er, and learn techniques for charting rolls with or without a chart pad or tracking sheet. We’ll show you the secrets of expansion and contraction when betting, how to pick the right number to press, and how to get the profit off the table. Then, we’ll take a look at the best back-up games – baccarat, blackjack, and (yes) roulette. At the end of the morning you’ll walk out a more rounded player with a better chance of winning. We’re packing a lot of training into a three hour session – which is why this seminar is limited to just eight attendees. The cost is $299 per person. Pricing includes all handouts and materials.
