Heavy and Howard’s Biloxi Beach Bash

March 22 – 24, 2019

Spring is just around the corner – that time of year when a young man’s (and a couple of old men’s) hearts turn toward the beach at Biloxi, Mississippi. Biloxi is home to some of the best craps games in the country. You’ll LOVE their generous odds, automatic Buy bets on outside numbers, friendly dealers and easy comps. And no matter how much weight you put on over the winter – your flip flops still fit. The only thing missing from this picture is YOU!

What more could a dice guy ask for? How about a weekend with old friends and new? Fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood, including some of the best shrimp and oysters on the planet? Toss in an opportunity to learn dice control from two of the best in the business – Heavy and Howard “Rock and Roller” – and you have a recipe for a weekend you’ll never forget. And it’s all coming to the coast the weekend of March 22, 2019.

By now you all know that Howard “Rock ‘n Roller” is one of the world’s greatest dice controllers, and an expert when it comes to tossing hardways and All Tall Small winners. Howard and I stepped up to the tables together in Biloxi for the first time way back in 2001. My reputation speaks for itself. Axis Power Craps is the oldest continuously operated dice control school in the business. Others have come and gone. We’re still going strong.

Howard and I have trained thousands of students – some who have themselves gone on to become some of the best around. Our joint seminars in recent years are in the books as some of the best we’ve put together in years. With over thirty-five 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 this weekend’s line-up includes a minimum of TWO live sessions with the coaches with NO live session surcharge.

Friday night will feature our traditional Meet and Greet Get-Together. We’ll hook up at a local Beachfront Bar to knock back a few, renew old friendships and make new ones. Hungry? This place does great bar-food, but if you want oysters that were reefed up in the Gulf that morning there are plenty of options available. Kick back, relax and enjoy the company of your fellow crapsters. 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 and a written toss improvement plan. But 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 everyone’s toss is up to speed, we’ll spend the afternoon delving into advanced techniques in dice control, including the underhand toss and developing back-up shooting positions. Need some help fine-tuning 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.

Saturday’s session is available stand-alone at the following pricing: Axis Power Craps Alums can sign on for a half-day tune up/hook up session for just $395 – or the full day Saturday for $495.  That price includes all Live Casino Sessions on Sunday. Alumni Students enroll at the following links:

It always helps if you give us a shout out by e-mail when you mail in a registration as we do not check this post office box every day.

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.

See you on the beach in Biloxi!

  • Letting the Dice Make the Decision

    Most of us serious crapsters like to have several numbers working at any given point in the game. Doing so increases the variability of the game, which in effect makes the game more interesting. Few players are interested in single-bet grinds that rely strictly on Pass or Don’t Pass...

  • Dice Control, Visualization and Imagery

    Through the years I’ve written extensively on the mental aspects of craps and precision shooting. Of all the preparation routines precision shooters employ, none, in my opinion, is more powerful than visualization, or guided imagery.
