Las Vegas Right or Wrong Weekend – January 24 – 26. 2020

Riding on the heels of all of the positive feedback from September’s Darksider’s Ball seminar, DarthN8r and I have decided to offer a four part “Right or Wrong” weekend January 24th – 26th at Nate’s secret location with the million dollar view of Las Vegas. We’ll cover the same great Dark Side material and much more!

This exciting first seminar of 2020 will consist of a half day toss tune-up session, a half-day of Nate and Heavy’s favorite Don’t strategies to capitalize on cold tables and keep you in the money while waiting for the dice; a half-day of Heavy and Nate’s Right side power plays designed to get the money when the dice get hot and the sevens come few and far between; and we top it all off with a half day of live casino sessions WITH the coaches – something no other major dice control outfit is willing to do.

Attendees will have the option to sign up for any or all sessions with the exception of the live casino sessions – with a limit of 12 students per session. Sessions will be filled on a first come – first served basis. Note that you MUST sign up for at least one of the three training sessions in order to sign up for the live casino sessions.

Tuition shakes out as follows. Individual half-day training segments are $395 for first time students or $295 for Axis Power Craps alumni students.

It is anticipated that two ninety minute sessions will be played, but in lieu of that we may play a single three hour session or three one-hour sessions, depending on table conditions. It is possible the class will split into two groups for some sessions if we are unable to get all players onto a single table for the session. Sign on for the live casino sessions at this link:

    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...

  • 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...
