    Having not yet played, I am thus far holding my own with the play of craps in the new year.

    If things remain as is through the end of December, I will have done much better than in each of the two preceding years of play.

    How's that for confidence?

    You are trending in the right direction, Koko Hope 2017 is even better for you at the craps tables.

    I’m starting to get antsy since I haven’t been in a casino in over three weeks. The good news is that Barney is back on the wagon after the polar bear fiasco but the bad news is that he won’t be available to drive for me for at least two weeks. After sobering up he was messing with the time shifting device and is now stuck in a timespace singularity. Leon and Parker estimate it will take at least two weeks to get him unstuck.

    For the next roadtrip, I think I may change my craps strategy utilizing the best practices of James Hall and Koko. Since most of the joints I play at have 20x odds, I think I might just play the passline and max odds if the point is the six or eight and preset for the six and eight. However, if the point is any other number I will play $42 across like James and if I lose I will go into the shitter to look for UCDT signs. Have a great craps New Year.

    Could a time space singularly create an AP VP possibility?

    Been a long time since I've been to a strip joint. I suppose VP is available at Vegas strip joints? But we both know that when gambling, we should limit distractions.

    Well, I decided to see if my luck was still holding from December. Went out to the casino late last night, wanted to let the New Years crowd thin out a little.

    I had a nice free play coupon, and didn't take a lot of my own money. I won some on the VP quarter machine, and decide to go play the dollar ones. Myself and a very large black lady were the only ones on that bank of machines.

    After a bit, the lady hit a royal, they came to pay her off ($4,000). After they paid her, she asked them break one of the hundreds. They gave her the twenties, and she handed each of the attendants a twenty, they thanked her and left. Then she turned to me and handed me a twenty, I kinda looked puzzled, and said what's this for? She told me she just likes to share a little of her winnings when she comes to the casino.

    I didn't want to spoil her generosity, so I took the twenty, and put it in my shirt pocket, and thanked her. A short while later she left. I waited for the cleaning lady to come by and clean up around her machine, then I handed her the twenty, and told her the lady playing that machine hit the jackpot, and wanted her to have the twenty dollars....she looked as puzzled as I had previously, I just said "have a happy New Year!". :)

    Not a bad night / morning, right before I was going to leave, I hit a few nice wins, enough to recoup my losses, and a few extra dollars to boot. Not near as good as last weeks trips, and I stayed way to long!

    Hope I can stay awake for some of the bowl games!

    Well, I am up so far this year. Yesterday I won $10 and red rock @ craps. Today I won $10 at Palace Station @ craps. My attention is more on Baccarat these days, where I won $160 today.

    Sharing your winnings is a great way to keep 'em coming.
    Like anything else, money wants to move.
    Old money out, creates room for new money in.

    Similarly, paying someone forward.
    I'm always looking for a victim at the Starbucks or the pizza joint here in Manhattan. They're in line, you're in line. Why not? The emotional benefit is off-the-charts. It's so easy to say, "Hey let me get that for you." And if they're young & female....

    Well...unless you look like LID

    CBK,

    You are way off base here man. Take a look at any of the pics that LID puts up. The man always has some serious eye candy at his side, and the SOB doesn't even take regular (> 4 per year) showers, although his oral hygiene appears to be impeccable. ;)

    A shocking display of depravity.
    Just what I needed this morning.
    This is gonna help my craps game, immensely.

    Meanwhile, after the contraband seizure by, Dudley Doright - Chief Censor & all-around-swell guy, and back at Censor Central.

    "Mmmm, Dudley...which one of these are not entirely real?"

    That's right, Poop! Slow & steady wins the race! I NEVER thought I'd be satisfied with small $30-$100 wins. However, they all add up, & when playing a negative expectation game, ANY win is a GREAT accomplishment!

    I have YET to enter a Casino for 2017. I was scheduled for a 5 day stay ( starting today), but we are due for 3 days of snow, & they are already shutting the city down in preparation for the Big storm, & freezing temperatures!

    The wife just called me from City Hall, & they are releasing all employees at 11:30 E.S.T.!

    Anxious to try out my new toss to see if it works in the Casinos! Looks like it won't be until next week, though!

    Feels good to NOT concentrate on tossing dice in perfect tandem!

    Continued Success at the tables, & beyond!
