Heavy’s & Howard’s
“Back to Biloxi” Craps Clinic
July 23rd – 25th, 2021
July is Hot Summer Fun Time on the Beach in Biloxi and it is just around the corner! And your old craps pals Heavy and Howard are together again, rolling back into Biloxi for a SUPER new class that includes tuning up your old tosses and teaching you some new Specialty throws to help deal with the issues Dice Influencers are facing at today’s tables! Sticky dice, plexiglass sneeze barriers, and plexiglass topped electronic craps tables. That’s right! We’ve been in our home “dice labs” and in the casinos – trying out different grips and tosses to battle those Post Covid tables and Howard and I have a few new tricks up our sleeves to show you.
Craps players – you’ll absolutely LOVE Biloxi casino’s generous odds, automatic Buy bets on outside numbers, friendly dealers and easy comps. And it’s hard to beat a weekend with old friends and new, fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood, including some of the best shrimp and oysters on the planet, and an opportunity to learn dice control from two of the best in the business – Heavy and Howard “Rock and Roller.” It’s all coming to the coast the weekend of July 23rd, 2020.
Axis Power Craps is the oldest continuously operated dice control school in the business. Howard and I have known each other for 20 years and between us we’ve have trained thousands of students – some who have themselves gone on to become some of the best around. With over thirty-six 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 unlike our competitors, your coaches actually hook up with their students for live sessions over the weekend with NO live session surcharge.
Friday night will feature our traditional Meet and Greet Get-Together. Depending on class size and Covid regulations, we may have to break the class up into two groups at separate locations. Wherever we hook up, we’ll knock back a few, renew old friendships and make new ones. Hungry? There are plenty of options available. 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.
One thing we’ve noticed in recent years is that some of you are coming into the classes lacking or in need of a refresher on some of the craps basics, so we’ll start out there. Once we feel everyone is up to speed and on the same page the agenda will look something like this:
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
Each attendee will receive a one-on-one toss analysis of your current on-axis toss and we’ll tune-up that toss and get it looking fantastic for the weekend. Once both Howard and Heavy have your Axis dialed in we’ll move on to the Specialty Toss portion of the class. Among the techniques we have on the agenda are:
The Plexiglass Barrier Shots for SL or SR. Yes we’ve noticed the plexiglass is starting to come down in some markets – but these are great shots to have in your arsenal when your go-to shot isn’t working for you!
The Low Roller
The Underhanded Shot
The Corner Shot
The Plexiglass Barrier Shots from Straight Out. If you haven’t learned to shoot from Straight Out yet you’re missing out on one of the most powerful positions to shoot from at the table! You’ll learn:
The Straight-Out Axis Shot
The Split Shot
The Helicopter Shot
The Plexiglass Topped Electronic Tables. Dice Influencers all over the country are having a love affair with these tables. But you have to learn how to toss and Howard has mastered them!
The Yuri Toss
The Yuri Corner Toss
The Drop Shot
While we have plenty of toss instruction time available, 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.
Once we’ve covered all of the shooting techniques from the various table positions it will be time to help you fine tune the other aspects of 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.

Want more training? Sunday morning I’ll be running the Axis Power Craps Advanced Betting Strategy Class from 9AM – 12 Noon. This is the same great class we taught in Vegas last month and Biloxi back in the Spring. I’ll cover all of the Right side indicators I look for before placing a bet, which bets I make and why. We’ll discuss bankroll size and management, the best bet progressions – both conservative and aggressive – and how to get the money. Then we’ll transition to the Dark Side and look at my favorite Don’t approaches to the game from a DI perspective. Finally, we’ll look at Hybrid plays and using them to transition from the Right side to the Dark side and back again. The cost of this class is $399 if you take the class stand-alone. If you combine it with any of the Saturday classes we’ll discount it to $349. Sign up at the following links:

[i]Space IS limited due to Covid restrictions. 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.[/i]

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…
