Heavys Summer Camp-2019Heavy’s Axis Power Craps Summer Seminar

June 21 – 23, 2019

Yes, it’s Heavy’s FIRST Vegas Seminar of 2019 and it just happens to fall on the first weekend of SUMMER! June is when things really start to HEAT UP in Las Vegas. The pools and dayclubs are packed, and when the sun goes down, the clubs stay busy all night long. As for the craps scene? Some nights the dice are so hot they damn near melt. Our advice? Pack some sun screen. Not that you’ll spend much time out by the pool, but you might have to walk across the parking lot to your rental car sometime, and that Vegas sun sizzles.

DarthN8r and I will get this party started with a meet and greet get-together Friday evening, followed by a pre-seminar “play ’em as you see ’em” live session. Guests are welcome so bring your wife, husband, significant other, or best bud. We have nothing to hide. When we hit the tables later you may see us on the Dark side, a hybrid strategy like One Hit – Can’t Miss, or jumping in with both feet on the Right side. It all depends on how we see the dice performing. And we can pretty much assure you that you can watch Darth and I and learn something about betting (even if it’s what NOT to do). However it works out – this session won’t go all night long. Saturday morning comes early and we have a full day of craps training planned for you at that secret location on the golf course with the million dollar view of Vegas. On the agenda for this class:

* Best Dice Sets – V-2, V-3, X-6, HW, S-6, P-6, Mutants
* Best Dice Grips – One Finger, Three Finger, Front, Diagonal, Pincer, Ice Tong
* Best Toss Technique – Backhand, Underhand, High Arc, Low Arc, Low Rev, High Rev
* Landing Zones – Where and Why
* Alternate Positions – SL-One is Not the Only Spot at the Table
* Best Right Side Betting Strategies to Get the Money
* Precision Shooting from the Dark Side
* Round Table Discussion and Open Table Time

We’ll squeeze a lunch in there somewhere but any way you look at it this is going to be a full day. In prior classes we’ve also played a live session after the dice control training session but before we got into the betting material. All decisions on live sessions on seminar days will be made on location and will depend on the class size, playing conditions, and the consensus of the players involved.

Sunday morning we’ll hook up once again at the secret location with the million dollar view for one more toss tweak and a strategy session for the live casino play we have planned for the day. You’ll play a minimum of two live casino session with the coaches. These sessions are planned to be played in different casinos with each session lasting 60 – 90 minutes, however the actual length of the session may vary depending upon on-site conditions. Additionally, on many occasions we’ll end up staying on a hot table for 2 – 3 hours. In those instances we will consider the two planned sessions to have been played without a break between them. We MAY at our discretion play additional sessions after the officially planned class sessions are over. However, those sessions will be simple “hook up sessions” and are not a part of the class itself. Yes, that’s right folks. Here at Axis Power Craps the coaches have nothing to hide. We actually go to the tables with you and play a live session with you.

  • The Tale of the Toke

    Let’s face it. Casino dealers are some of the most overworked and under appreciated people you will ever meet. They put in long hours bent over a table servicing people who are generally at their worst – drunk and losing. Sure, you’ll run across the occasional rude or inept...

  • Chicken Soup and Craps Superstitions

    According to the good folks at Wikipedia, “Confirmation bias, also called confirmatory bias or myside bias, is the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one’s preexisting beliefs or hypotheses.”

    What that means is this. Let’s say you believe that a…

  • Hops, Props and Side Bets

    Hop bets, prop bets, and the many side bets available are the crack cocaine of craps. Savvy players know when to avoid them except for their entertainment value. But when they win the payoffs are fantastic.

  • How to Own the Craps Table

    No, I’m not talking about making a trip to Gambler’s General Store and investing in a table for your home.  I’m talking about taking ownership of the table whenever you have the dice – which, by the way, you ALSO take ownership of.  One of the best ways to...

  • Partner Play – Share the Risk – Share the Reward

    Why do you play craps?  If you’re like me you play for two reasons.  First, you want to win some of that money the casino keeps in the cage.  Second, you enjoy the action.  It’s just a fun game, and playing with a partner is a great way to...

  • The Working Man’s Bets

    For many of us a $12 Six and Eight or $22 Inside was our first venture into Place Betting.  We’d read all of the books recommending Pass Line with Odds and two or three Come Bets with Odds as the best way to play.  We’d had some success, but...

  • Working on the Come Out

    One of the topics we frequently touch on on the Axis Power Craps Forum is whether or not a DI should work his bets on the Come Out. My late Uncle Hubert – the original “Heavy” – would have told you that if you turn that “ON” button upside...

  • Dancing Around the Dark Side

    If you’re new to craps or don’t have a lot of experience playing the Don’ts it can be easy to get confused at first. To help you over the hump here’s a quick primer on how the dark side is played. The Don’t Pass bet is exactly the opposite...

  • Hedging Craps Carnival Bets

    In recent years we’ve seen a spate of what I refer to as “carnival bets” at craps and other casino games. Carnival bets are essentially high vig side bets designed to separate the player from his money in what we used to call the old “suck and pull.” They...

  • Dice and Dealing with Dickwads

    Okay, there’s an article title you won’t see every day.  Unfortunately, if you play craps regularly it’s an issue you’ll often face and need to know how to handle.  And the first step in addressing this question is to define what the hell a dickwad is. I think most...

  • Heavy’s Hydra Craps System

    The Hydra is a monster from Greek Mythology. You may recall it. If you cut off one of its heads two more grow back in its place. So the two-headed monster becomes a four headed monster, etc. It’s also my name for any “hybrid” system that consists of bets...

  • Why Craps Books Begin on Page One

    From time to time a player will ask me if I’ve ever noticed that every craps book ever written seems to start out with sixty or seventy pages of the same old stuff on how to play the game. They tell the history of the game, describe the modern...

  • Do You Really Want To Stand at a Crowded, Smokey Craps Table for $12 an Hour?

    You may have seen the article awhile back about the restaurant worker who protested for a $15 an hour minimum wage in his Pacific Northwest city. The city passed an ordinance that required restaurants to pay a $15 minimum wage and over the next few months over 400 restaurant...

  • The Mathematically Correct Way to Play Craps – And Why It’s Wrong

    Through the years I’ve often been at odds with “the math guys” over the correct way to play craps.  Wait a minute. Let me grab a book by a random math guy and see what he recommends as the correct way to play craps. Here’s one. Avery Cardoza’s Casino...

  • Betting the Bank at Baccarat – A Heavy “Sit Down” Bet

    One of the problems old-timers like myself have with craps revolves around the fact that it’s a stand-up game.  As players age and develop some of the diseases that go along with aging – diabetes and arthritis just to name two – standing at the table for long periods...

  • The Joy of Flat Betting

    From time to time I like to go to the tables for what I’ll kindly refer to as a “dead head” session. One where I don’t have to think excessively about betting strategies. Something simple, like flat betting the Don’t Pass. There are many different betting progressions out there...

  • Your Left Brain is a Lousy Crapshooter

    Through the years I’ve talked a lot about Left Brain versus Right Brain theory. The brain has two separate hemispheres, and each is responsible for different areas of activity. As the theory goes, your Left Brain is better at doing some things and your Right Brain is better at...

    Awhile back I wrote an article titled “Your Left Brain is a Lousy Crapshooster.” In it I addressed the fact that the brain is divided into two distinct hemispheres – each with its own well defined function. The right brain is the center of creativity. It’s in charge of...

  • Being the Star of your Own Show

    After about 15 years of teaching other players the Do’s and Don’ts of craps it’s become apparent to me that we all live our lives more or less like actors in a play. There are good guys and bad buys, winners and losers, supporting characters and character actors. Depending...
