Heavy Howard Beach

It’s that time again. Time to start preparing for the annual Heavy and Howard get-together on the beach in Biloxi, Mississippi. Biloxi is home to some of the best craps games in the country. Liberal odds, automatic Buy bets on outside numbers, friendly dealers and easy comps. What more could a dice guy ask for? How about fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood, including some of the best shrimp and oysters on the planet? Or maybe you’re tired of the frigid North and just want a warm touch of Southern hospitality? Toss in an opportunity to learn dice control from two of the best in the business – Heavy and Howard “Rock and Roller” – and you have a recipe for a weekend you’ll never forget. It’s all coming to the coast the weekend of February 23, 2018.

Heavy and Howard “Rock ‘n Roller” have been beating the casinos together since way back in 2001. Howard is one of the world’s greatest dice controllers, and an expert when it comes to tossing hardways and All Tall Small winners. Heavy is the creator of the Axis Power Craps toss system and one of the savviest bettors in the world. Their recent seminars and live sessions in Tunica and Vegas are in the books as some of the best they’ve put together in years. With over thirty years of DI instruction experience between us – you can’t go wrong on this deal.

Why not plan to arrive on the coast a day early, hook up with friends from prior seminars and get a little casual play in before the “official” fun begins? But hang onto your bankroll because this weekend’s line-up includes a minimum of TWO live sessions with the coaches with NO live session surcharge.

Friday night will feature our traditional Meet and Greet Get-Together. We’ll hook up at a local Sports Bar to knock back a few, renew old friendships and make new ones. Hungry? This place does great bar-food, but if you want oysters that were reefed up in the Gulf this morning there are plenty of options available. Kick back, relax and enjoy the company of your fellow crapsters. Afterwards you’ll be on your own to hit the casinos alone or in teams as we attempt to tame the tables. But don’t be out partying all night. Saturday morning Howard and I will have serious craps training on our minds.

Saturday’s class will take place at the local dealer school. This class will offer the best of both worlds. All attendees will have the opportunity for hands-on coaching from both Heavy and Howard. Both coaches offer slightly different approaches to dice influencing – both with the same objective – getting you the best, most profitable toss ever. We’ll start out with the basics of dice control:

Correct Table Positions – stick left isn’t the only spot in town!
Correct Dice Sets and how to get there quickly!
Correct Grip 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

Once everyone’s toss is up to speed, we’ll spend the afternoon delving into advanced techniques in dice control, including the underhand toss and developing back-up shooting positions. Howard will demo his straight out and corner shots, and I’ll demo my lobster and stack shots. Need some help fine-tuning your game? We’ll cover money management, basic betting strategies for advantage shooters and more as we work toward taking your game to the next level.

Each attendee will receive a one-on-one toss analysis and a written toss improvement plan. But don’t just come out for the personal toss instruction. You’ll learn even more by watching Heavy and Howard coach the other attendees. Of course, if you DO get bored you can always hit the dealer school’s third table for an “open” practice session. That’s right – the school we use in the Biloxi market has three full sized craps tables so you’ll have plenty of time to work on your throw before heading to the casinos.

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. First time students also receive a copy of Heavy’s Axis Power Craps Seminar on DVD as an added bonus. Here’s how this year’s pricing works out:

Axis Power Craps Alums can sign on for a Saturday half-day tune up/hook up session for just $299 – or the full day Saturday for $499. That $499 full day session is your BEST deal. All Saturday students are automatically eligible to join in all Live Casino Sessions on Sunday. Alumni Students enroll at the following links:

Want to learn more about becoming a consistent winner at the casino? Sunday morning Heavy will be conducting a Special 3 Hour Advanced Betting Strategy class for a maximum of six students. You’ll learn Heavy’s favorite press moves for casino craps and his secrets for getting money off the table. You’ll learn the roll tracking and wheel sectoring technique Heavy has been using successfully at roulette for over 15 years, Heavy’s “ABB” strategy for Baccarat, and his EZ “115 Count” Blackjack strategy (No, you don’t have to count to 115). Each game comes with its own manual with play by play instructions. Pick up a “sit down” game for those times when you need a break from craps. Diversify and increase your winnings. Here’s how the schedule breaks down:

Craps – 90 minutes – 8:00 – 9:30 AM
Roulette – 30 minutes 9:30 – 10:00 AM
Baccarat – 30 minute 10:00 – 10:30 AM
Blackjack – 30 minutes 10:30 – 11:00 AM

This three hour class is bargain priced at $299 per person. Sign on at the following link:

As always, your tuition covers the cost of the seminar itself and all hand-out material. Attendees are on their own for transportation, meals, and accommodations. Remember, these events are intended to be instructional – educational weekends. While many players walk away from these events winners – there is no guarantee that you will win at any casino session. It’s still gambling and you could lose. Don’t gamble with money you cannot afford to lose.

See you on the beach in Biloxi!
