Heavy’s & DarthN8r’s Axis Power Craps

Right or Wrong Weekend

and

Darksider’s Ball

November 11 – 13th, 2020

Yes, the Yin and Yang of Craps Coaches will be at it again – Friday thru Sunday, November 13th – 15th in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. We’re anticipating the casinos to be open at that glorious time of year when Vegas temperatures just start to crest in the mid-70’s every day before dipping down into the crisp 30’s at night. Enjoy a taste of Vegas when you can walk across the parking lot without the soles of your shoes melting! Enjoy a fantastic weekend of craps training in Darth’s secret craps pit with the million-dollar view overlooking the pool, the golf course, the lake, and of course – that sensational Vegas skyline.

On Friday we’ll kick things off early with FOUR BoneTracker sessions – two on Friday morning and two more on Friday afternoon. We’ll offer both a beginner and an advanced session in the morning and afternoon sessions – and each session will run 90 minutes. Beginner sessions will cover the basics of BoneTracker; how to input data correctly, interpret the basic results, navigate the various tabs, and drill down to the information you need to make informed decisions about your sets, bets, and toss. The Advanced session takes you well beyond that, including an in-depth analysis of your own rolls (a book of 720 rolls is required to be submitted in advance of the class in BoneTracker format). Analysis will include a look at alternate dice sets for specific results, including such specialty bets as the All Tall Small and Fire Bet wagers. The cost of each session is $299. Sign up for both the Beginner and Advanced Session for $549 and save $50. Enrollment links below:

On Saturday we jump right in where we always begin – teaching you the things you didn’t know you didn’t know. We’ll cover the fundamentals of dice control as well as some basic principles of group play that we do our best to adhere to on seminar weekends and beyond. Then we get right down to individual toss training with an eye toward developing YOUR toss into the best throw it can be. In most cases we will not make wholesale changes to a player’s established toss – we’ll simply correct any minor mistakes or habits that you’ve fallen into. But if you need more work, we’ll jump on it. We’ll also provide you with a written assessment with the goal of getting you to a baseline toss you can start out with on ANY table – then adjust from there as needed based on table conditions and results.

Shortly after midday we’ll break for lunch. Odds are lunch will include a brief live session at a local casino where once again we’ll have a chance to observe you in live play. Afterward we’ll return to Darth’s craps pit to debrief, discuss, then continue toss training and move on to betting basics, money management, and discipline. Typically the class wraps up around 5:30 – 6:00 PM. After that everyone is on their own for dinner, individual or team play, or just kicking back and relaxing for the evening.

Tuition for the Dice Control Seminar on Saturday is $895 for first time students, $795 for GTC Alumni Students, and $695 for Axis Power Craps Alumni Students. Enroll at the links listed below:

On Sunday morning we’ll offer an optional add-on Betting Strategy Class. This is really where the rubber meets the road and you learn to put together what you learned in the dice control class with proper betting strategies for the situation at hand. This class is split about 40/40 between Right Side and Dark Side play, with the remaining 20% focusing on hybrid or hedge plays that utilize both the Right Side and the Dark Side as part of the strategies. This class stretches about four hours and is, quite frankly, a Master’s Class in betting. While it is an optional add on class – everyone signing on for the seminar weekend should sign on for this class. Not that if you have taken an Axis Power Craps Seminar in the past and wish to sign up for the Betting Strategy Class ONLY you may. The tuition for this class is $395 for first time students. $295 for Axis Power Craps Alumni Students. Enroll at the links listed below:

On Sunday afternoon DarthN8r and I will play a couple of Live casino sessions with the students who sign on for the weekend’s events. Typically, these sessions range from 45 to 90 minutes each – depending on casino conditions. Locations to be decided and announced at the seminar itself.

The classes DarthN8r and I have offered recently – Last September’s Darksider’s Ball Seminar, this year’s Jumpstart January and June Jam Seminars – not only Sold Out – they were some of the best classes we’ve ever offered in terms of pure craps educational content. Don’t miss out on your chance to learn from two of the best in the business. November is the perfect time to hit Vegas. Make your plans to join us now!

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.

 

  • 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...

    Okay, let’s get the bad news out of the way first. No one can teach you discipline. It has to come from within. What do I mean by discipline? Simply put, it’s how you manage your emotions at the table. Do you get pissed and start chasing your losses...

    Imagine your sweetheart opening that box of candy you gave her – only to discover that someone had eaten all of the chocolates and replaced them with dice. Well, I’ll give you an “E” for effort, but that’s probably not going to win the love of your life over...

  • How to Take $1000 Home from the Casino

  • Craps versus Blackjack

    Ignoring the obvious, one is a card game and one is a dice 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 with a long-run SRR of 1:7 has...

  • Getting Out of a Rut

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

    Quick, without thinking – when is the best time to end your craps session? If you said “while you’re ahead” I like your thinking. Of course, then you have to decide just how MUCH you have to be ahead before you pull the plug. But that is where session...

  • 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...

    If you play the Las Vegas Strip casinos on weekends you’ll eventually come face-to-face with one of my least favorite animals – the $15 minimum craps game. And if you’re like a lot of players, myself included, you’ll do your best to avoid this beast. Oh, it’s not a...
