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.

  • Risk versus Reward

    Risk. We face it everyday. Risk from uninsured motorists. Risk from eating too much red meat. Risk from unprotected sex. Risk when we jaywalk in Vegas. Everyone, at some gut level, makes choices about risk every day – and in many cases these can be life or death decisions....

  • The Back in Balance Play

    Back about ten years ago I developed a betting strategy based on the observation that the craps table is always trying to stay “in balance” with the probability universe. In other words – Do decisions and Don’t decisions always work to balance out over the long run. You could...

  • Heavy’s “Squeeze Box” Play

    The number of ways to attack the game of craps is unlimited, but some plays attract more attention than others do – particularly from dealers who think they have seen it all. Here is a play I make from time to time that always piques their interest. I call...

  • Hit and Git

    While I don’t have a lot of faith in “due number” or “average hand” theories at craps, there is something to be said for “getting in, getting up, and getting gone.” One way to do that is through one of the many variants of the “Hit and Down” play....

  • Better Bankroll Management with Casino Credit

    Casino Credit can be a great tool for managing your bankroll when you are on a gambling trip. It helps you avoid the problems associated with traveling with large sums of money through the airport, and lessens the fear of getting mugged and losing everything. But it does come...

  • Dice Control versus Card Counting

    What’s the difference in craps and blackjack? Ignoring the obvious, one is a dice game and one is a card game, there are a lot of differences in craps and blackjack – just as there are a lot of similarities. But there’s one major difference. A skilled dice influencer...

  • Gambling and the Law of Unintended Consequences

    Have you ever been standing down in the hook with a bet in front of you when the dice hit your chips and bounced onto a seven? You didn’t mean for that to happen, and it’s doubtful that the shooter did either. But it happened, and it’s a great...

  • Table Conditions

    Table conditions. It’s one of the most popular topics when precision shooters get together and talk craps. To be successful, the precision shooter has to know what he is up against, and one of the biggest variables is the table itself. What goes into the construction of a craps...

  • Learning Optimism

    Players who get the opportunity to hang around the tables with me often hear me talk about “the crap between their ears” and how it impacts their play. It’s been that way since the beginning – and I guess it will be that way forever. Most precision shooters have...

  • Heavy from the Don’ts

    I’d been playing craps for over fifteen years before I finally took time to learn the other half of the game – the Dark Side. Up until then I played “the Right Way” one hundred percent of the time. And as the math of the game would dictate, I...

  • Zen, Dice, and the Tao of Craps

  • Fight or Flight? Handling Stress in the Casino

    Fight or flight – we’ve all heard it. And it was never truer than at the craps table. For some people stress is simply a tool to increase their performance level. Let’s face it. Most of us perform best when facing a challenge as long as we are adequately...

  • I Saw – You Saw

    Let’s face it. None of us has a perfect memory. Most of us mean no harm by misremembering. But misremembering facts can have a serious downside. For example, you’ll often run across conflicting accounts by eyewitnesses to serious crimes. These days it’s not unusual to see convicted felons proven...

  • Free Play on Slots versus Free Bets at Craps

    If you’re old enough you may remember back when casinos courted table games players and pretty much ignored slot players. Slots were there for table games players’ wives to occupy themselves on while the real action ran through the pit, and craps was the king of the table games....

  • Heavy’s $120 Short-Bankroll Play

    Okay, I’ll admit it. I’ve had days, particularly in the midst of a prolonged losing streak, where the most I could muster up for a craps session was a couple of hundred bucks. When I step up and buy in for – say six twenty dollar bills the first...

    One of the many issues recreational gamblers endure is short run bankroll volatility. These are often players with short bankrolls to begin with; guys who step up to a $10 game and buy in for double what they’d buy in for at a $5 game – a whopping $200....

  • The Games to Play When Craps Turns to Crap

    Let’s face it. It happens to all of us. For one reason or another, skills we’ve developed at home don’t make the transition to the casino. Blame it on variance, bad luck, or something you ate for dinner – sometimes the correct craps play is no craps play. So...
