Heavy JumpStart January Seminar
Heavy’s Craps Pit in East Texas
January 21st, 2023 

January is a GREAT time to get your toss tuned up and get ready for the coming travel season. Here at Axis Power Craps, we have Craps Cruise 8 on Allure of the Seas coming up out of Galveston in February, and the next Biloxi class with yours truly and DarthNater the weekend of March 10 – 12th. From there it’s Full Speed Ahead with a busy schedule of cruises and classes around the Caribbean and across the country for the rest of 2023. So before old Heavy has to hit the road, how about let’s get together right hear at Rancho el Heavy and have a small one-day class right here in my home craps pit?

This class will be on Saturday, January 21st from 9AM – 5PM. Of course, like all of my classes, there’s no “hard” finish time. We’ll wrap up when we’re done, even if it takes an extra hour or so. This will be essentially the same class I teach in the seminars we do in Biloxi, Las Vegas, and other cities around the country – just smaller. Topics covered include:

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
Right Side Betting Progressions, Money Management and Discipline
Basic Don’t Play
And Much More!

Each attendee will receive a copy of Heavy’s original Axis Power Craps Seminar on DVD if they don’t already have it – plus live one-on-one toss analyses and a toss improvement plan. But don’t just come out for the personal toss instruction. You’ll learn even more by watching me coach the other attendees.

Throughout the day we’ll intersperse some basic betting strategies with the toss training to keep everyone on their toes and make sure you all have those signature press moves down. Then, later in the day after we’ve tuned up everyone’s tosses and given everyone an opportunity to toss from at LEAST two positions (everyone needs a back-up spot to shoot from), we’ll move on into some of the advanced betting strategies we’d normally cover in the Sunday Advanced Betting Strategy session we teach on the big seminar weekends.

How, you ask, can I manage to get all of this material covered on one Saturday? Simple. Due to the space I have available in my craps pit (my table is a 10 footer, not a full 12 footer) I’m going to limit the class size to FIVE players. Fewer players means we can wrap up the one on one training faster and have more time for betting strategy training in the one-day class.

Enrollment will be on a first registered and paid – first guaranteed a slot basis. Once five slots are filled I will create a stand-by list to refer to in case of cancelations. Tuition is significantly less than in the big classes, since (1) no casino school rental, (2) no travel expense for yours truly, and (3) no assistant coaches to pay.

Normally first-time tuition would be $995 – $895 for DD213 Veterans. This time around ALL First Time Students can register for $795 – a savings of $100 – $200. Register for $795 at the following link:

Yep, January we’ll be kicking off the year with another small class at my place in East Texas, approximately 12 miles Southeast of Tyler, Texas. Address and driving directions will be provided upon registration. Note for out of area travelers – the nearest hotels/motels are in Tyler, Texas on the Southeast Loop. The closest casinos (for those of you who may want to follow this Saturday class up with a casino outing on Sunday) are in Shreveport/Bossier City, approximately 90 minutes East of Heavy’s residence via Interstate 20. There are some great tables in that market – and virtually no heat for DI’s. I highly recommend it.

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.

  • Cruise Ship Craps Strategies

    One of the first things you’ll discover when playing on most cruise ships is that the table limits are generally low and the game’s odds (pardon my French) suck. That’s IF they have a craps table at all. But let’s assume they do and go from there….

  • Heavy’s Even Number Press Strategy

  • Seven Steps to Smarter Don’t Play

    Let’s start this article out with a little common sense explanation of something most players get wrong. It’s the idea that they don’t like Laying the Odds or Laying Points on the Don’ts because “I don’t like risking more money to win less.” For example, you’d Lay…

  • When Puts Come to Shove

    If you’ve ever stood at the table with me for any length of time you’ve probably heard me say “Get those late bets in early, guys.” That’s because late bets – bets made after the dice have already been sent to the shooter – disrupt the flow of…

  • Three Precision Shooter Don’t Strategies

    From time to time a player will ask me if playing the Don’ts is compatible with precision shooting. My answer – absolutely. Think about it. The seven is already the most powerful number on the dice. If you can throw MORE sevens than the law of averages says you…

  • Do You Want to Win or Do You Want to Throw the Dice?

    Often, in the Axis Power Craps Seminars, we’ll assign positions to players based on our observations in class and tell them “if this position is open at the table you go there and buy in.” We’ll even run mock casino sessions at class with everyone practicing in the position…

  • Free Odds – The Gravy on the Table

    Every craps author worth his salt will tell you the best bet on the table is the Free Odds bet. Why? Because the house has no advantage on that bet. He’ll also tell you that you should always take max odds. That’s where I part…

  • Stretching Your Bankroll when Money gets Tight

    I could lecture you on the importance of establishing and maintaining a separate gaming bankroll, but let’s face it. Most of you won’t do that and those of you who have already done so probably won’t hesitate to use the funds in that account should you need the…

  • Playing the Streak – or Was that a Trend?

    Streaks occur at craps all of the time. Despite the fact that the odds of any streak continuing are only about 50% after each consecutive Pass or Don’t Pass, you’ll see streaks of 5, 10, or 15 Pass or Don’t Pass decisions from time to time . ….

    A years back I cranked up a “get out of your bankroll rut” series on the Axis Power Craps Forum. The idea behind the series was simple enough. If you’re continuing to do the same old thing at the tables year after year and you’re not getting…
