Re: What size increase in bankroll is needed to add a lay bet on each comeout roll?

BillionaireBen, You would be living the dream brother! This reminds me of that wonderful fantasy video from the History Channel all about this guy who could toss any number he intended to toss...The Dominator. Man, I love that video, although I have no evidence that such an invincible dice influence...

Re: 22Inside's Betting Evolution

I saw a little movie once with a character named the Dominator. That guy could toss any number he wanted to toss every time. He was amazing. Anyhow, this guy, the Dominator could not turn a -EV game to a +EV game. However, he could have hopped the 9s and hit the nines all day long. He failed to turn...

Re: reference to a post

Irish, In reference to risk adversity and risk loving, I am thinking that such perspectives are entirely personal. Essentially, how I live my life may appear to you as entirely too risky, whereas I might think that I am not taking extraordinary risks. In such a case I am neither risk adverse nor ris...

Re: reference to a post

If a shooter is really reducing the appearance of the seven, with great regularity (ie: demonstrating skill), it's unlikely that their compensated results are off axis. This is really the goal of DI. Axis Power Craps basically restates this truth. However we set dice, the more "on axis" tosses in a...

Re: Al Kaufman do don’t system

HS, Mr. Kaufman provides the weak underbelly of his method when he says: "To lose you would have to toss 8 pass or 8 don't pass losses in a row. That is nearly impossible like catching lightening in a jar." I suggest that 8 pass line losses or 8 don't pass losses in a row is certainly in the realm o...

Re: Revisiting "one hit can't miss"

I personally like the hardway hedge, although I also think it's cost me money over the long run. Mathematically it's a poor play because you're just giving up additional EV. I hear you Heavy. But many of us are not trying to just "make money" playing Craps like a job. Speaking for myself, I enjoy m...

Thank you for the guidance Jaime1943. I am going to be back in Las Vegas in February on business and I am going to give your approach a shot.

Re: What's your favorite money management move?

My favorite money management move may surprise avid craps players, but here it is: once I realized that I was a Randy myself, I focused more and more on my shooting practice at home. Someday, I want to purchase a craps table for my basement and continue to get closer to the real world at practice. T...

Re: low buy-in first bets, new table

I tend to agree with Irish's approach with a few hundred buy in. However, I would like to also call attention to DarthNader's topic "Vegas Baby! DarthNader Prowls the Valley." In that topic Mr. Darth describes his sessions at Sunset Station, LV where he is really using the same approach of a few hun...

Hi Ya Bentonck, You found the path to the holy grail of craps. We cannot be fooled that luck will keep our budget in the black. Only practice and more practice can help. I suggest that you set up a practice rig at home and get some casino dice. Heavy has some nifty ones. I use Aloha Johnny's practic...

Re: Is there really such a thing as a "lucky streak?"

I think I am cautiously optimistic but somewhat agnositc on the concept of dice influence. I try my darnedest to set the dice, keep them rotating on axis, and prevent them from hitting the back wall bumper too hard. I try to learn new techniques in dice influence. But I personally haven't seen any ...

Re: Is there really such a thing as a "lucky streak?"

There is no avoiding the statistic fact that each roll is an independent event. Assume that there is no dice influencing at all and what you have is a situation where each roll has a probability of landing each of the combinations that appear on the two dice. So, Mainframe is suggesting that for tho...

Dear Darth, calendar conflict will keep me from the Ball this year. However, I humbly nominate Caesars Palace tables.

Re: What's your favorite money management move?

I agree with Shootitall that greed factor sometimes gets the best of us. When that happens we usually give back our gains...not advisable. How many times have you said "man I wish I pressed more aggressively" when the shooter kept hitting numbers? Pretty much all of us feel that. But those who pulle...
