    Ahh... yes, a bright light on the porch to attract moths to fornicate among each other. The Craps Table at a Casino.

    DI's would be clustered on each side of the Stickman, the light bulb. Those that had the special glow would not care where they stood, but would most likely pass the dice to the DI on their immediate left... and so it goes around to the DI's standing closest to the Stick.

    Once these DI's blow their cover as Random Chuckers with style... the dice would pass faster and faster until someone became tired of Passing the Dice and would... meekly take the spotlight. The bright light... flickering to the pressure of producing something.

    Like a hen hatching an egg to admire...

    The moment you hear of a DI Convention is the moment the onlookers find...

    ...an Empty Table. Other than three dealers, a Boxman and the suit watching over the Table's Bank.

    Much like finding Space Aliens stored in refrigerators at Area 51 north of Las Vegas... is where you will find these DI critters. Large heads, oversized eyes and delicate fingers for fondling the cubes. They fluff up their skill set only to flutter away for other venues... like talking about their skills at the table and the pocket full of easy made cash... at the Casino's Bar.

    Amazing since Craps has been played in the gaming capital of the World... not one Craps Convention for Dice Influencers. The Ghosts of big wins of the past are only print in a book or a magazine. Today... moths fornicating at a light bulb... waiting for the opportunity to... talk about beating a Craps Table, holding a palm full of chips from their pockets. Another 'show and tell' for school the next weekend. Then, repeat. Life is wonderful with the 'lights off'.

    I believe there are conventions for di enthusiasts
    People like me and maybe you don't get invitations to these privately held events
    A lot of high fives and celebrating at nearest casino bar after they rip the casino a new asshole

    Over the years, I have seen several plans made here on the board by various DI's arranging time and place for a get together.

    Nothing wrong with that.

    They seem to believe that getting together with other so-called skilled players will be entertaining and profitable.

    On one occasion, I recall seeing plans for a get together in one of the NJ casinos, where arrangements were made for a private table. Don't remember if this came off or how things went. $Eye$ might have been involved in the one I remember seeing a long discussion about.

    Obviously, how things go is the important thing.

    It would not be impossible for a group of so-called DI's to win a boat-load of cash at the table, But then again, nothing is impossible. ;)

    When we gamble, it is possible to win, lose and draw. When you look at the definition of the word "gambling", one must conclude that losing is the most likely result.

    However, because each of the three outcomes are always possible, we take our chances.

    As much as anybody and perhaps worse than many, I get pissed off at a bogged down table, with so-called idiots constantly pitching out 3 or 4 whites with interesting placement announcements for damn near every roll.

    This is the same "better than thou" attitude the typical so-called DI shows to the random roller, so looking at things this way, guess I shouldn't bitch about the DI's.

    I tried years ago to observe some of these DI get togethers and the shooting, naturally, besides imaplaya and dicesetter(not sure how he spelled his handle) inviting me to watch, no other group wanted any part of me. I was told I was too negative, they didn't want me around them. Im pretty sure Im too honest for them and god forbid someone reports on exactly what happened during one of their shooting sessions, it would kill their credibility.
    There were other excuses, none of which admitted the real reasons.

    on the other side of the coin, Ive never had a problem shooting dice with anyone, and letting them watch my play, bubble or live table.

    it all boils down to the di shooters only want to report when they have a good time at the table, to them, all the other times are excusable due to having a bad day, bad felt, shit dealers, people blocking their landing zone, etc.......

    There are not that many left. I think the newer tables have hampered the DI with your standard OH toss. I see very few in CT. Sure people set the dice and give a half hearted effort.
