Kansas City
Heavy’s Axis Power Craps

Kansas City Craps Clinic

June 26th – 28th, 2020

Mark your calendars NOW for the upcoming Kansas City seminar – the weekend of June 26th – 287th in the Heart of America – just down the road from the home of the Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs!

That’s right.  The Kansas City casinos are re-opening June 1st, and we’re putting the Corona virus behind us and wrapping up Spring in style.  Think craps and Kansas City BBQ and good times at the tables.  And in the interest of giving you maximum one-on-one training time with Heavy, we’re keeping enrollment down to a maximum of just eight students.

As with all of my classes, I’ll teach you the dice sets, grips, and tosses to help keep the dice on axis, pitching properly and kicking off signature/repeating numbers. Then we’ll work on betting strategies that capitalize on those numbers and help you get and keep the money!

I’ll be running this class on my personal 12′ table at my daughter’s house in Independence, roughly 20 minutes from the casinos in North Kansas City. Casinos like Ameristar, Harrah’s, Isle of Capri, and Argosy.  And since I don’t have to pay dealer school rental fees I’m able to offer a $100 discount off regular tuition on this class compared to my usual pricing. Here’s how it breaks down:

First time students – $795. This price includes and advanced copy of the original Axis Power Craps Seminar Video, the full Saturday class, and the seminar manual and all handout material. First time students can sign on at this link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?c … 9Q4HH9N952

GTC alumni $695. I offer a $100 discount to GTC alums in recognition of the fact that GTC teaches an on axis shot based on the same principals as the Axis Power Craps shot. The primary differences are in the set-up and delivery. This price also includes an advanced copy of the original Axis Power Craps Seminar Video, the full Saturday class and the seminar manual and all handout material.  AND we also offer this discount to Dice Coach and Howard Rock ‘n Roller alums.  If you qualify for this discount sign on at this link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?c … GYSMEM36NE

Axis Power Craps Alumni $595. All Axis Power Craps alums should already have a copy of the original seminar on video. However, if you do not have a copy we’ll include that as well in this price. The full Saturday class and the seminar manual and all handout material are also included. Axis Power Craps Alumni students can sign on at this link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=CASCXMKA9Z62C

Note that there will be NO alumni half-day tune-up sessions on Saturday due to the limited number of slots available. Enrollment will strictly be limited to EIGHT players.

But wait, there’s more! Yes, like any late night TV commercial, there’s always something else you can get for just a few dollars more. On Sunday morning we’ll offer an optional add-on Advanced Craps Masters Betting Strategy Class with added emphasis on dark side play and surviving the randies while waiting for the dice. The class will be roughly a fifty-fifty split between right side and dark side plays as well as a few hybrid strategies tossed in the mix for good measure. As with our Saturday class, this session will be limited to a max of eight students. Cost of this Sunday betting strategy session is just $295. Sign on for the Sunday morning betting strategy class here: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?c … G9ZZV4KPZS

EARLY BIRD REBATE OFFER! Sign up for BOTH the Saturday Seminar and the Sunday Betting Strategy Session BEFORE May 15th and we’ll REBATE (via PayPal refund) 10% of your total payment to your PayPal account. Example: New Students signing on for $795 plus $295 = $1090 – receive a $109 rebate! Alumni Students signing on for $595 plus $295 = $890 – receive $89 rebate!

Make your plans now to join me in Kansas City, the home of the Super Bowl Champ Chiefs and some of the best BBQ you’ll eat outside of Texas.
