    You know when you practice and start off with rather meager hands until you catch fire .But in live play one has a limited bankroll.So why not bring the illusion of having a limited bankroll to your practice.

    Now I am not talking about working on a new grip, set, or an element with your toss.Just talking about practicing when everything is " in order".So if you start off badly your practice session is over. May help in the long term for stating off great in live play.

    Dave G. Ct.,

    There are multiple versions of REALITY, that below may work better for you.

    Assuming that analysis of your practice is NOT showing Positive Results, you need to modify one or more of the following:

    1) Your dice set
    2) Your throw, including the following:
    A) Speed of throw
    B) Landing position
    C) Angle of Throw & Release
    D) Release
    E) Table position
    F) Rotation, if any
    G) Angle of incidence with back wall

    When you have obtained that magic of fewer than Statistically Defined (7's), then & Only Then; continue practicing with that set of variables listed above, which achieved fewer (7's) in your practice.

    Recall that no one has stated that it was easy, could be accomplished in a short time, nor would all have the patience & moxy to accomplish it!

    Good Luck & do not allow the Nay-Swayers on this thread get into your Head, with their negativism.

    No one seems to want to do the math
    Let's say you are a devout di theorist
    You live and die by your shots and dice influencing/setting
    So figure out how many times a year you play and how much bankroll you are willing to or can AFFORD to lose(I understand a lot of di players have an addiction and need something to blame when their shot isnt on?)
    I didn't say risk, because one shouldn't gamble at all on anything unless you know the money can afford to be lost without it hurting you financially

    So for example let's say you play 24 times a year with a bankroll of 300
    600 a month
    And not that I believe but let's say you increase you odds by 1 percent so you saved 6 dollars a month
    2 percent
    12 dollars a month
    3 percent,you do the math because all the work and effort put in you'd be better off going out to dinner two times less each year and the financial results are the same
    Work a day a year overtime and you are in the same boat without the hundreds of hours invested
    If you do it as a hobby for lack of anything better to do, spend more time with your kids or wife or do some charity work
    No one is killing casinos with di shooting
    Most of the di shooters look for the lowest min tables clearly not trusting their abilities
    Then bitch and complain about all the other newbies and random shooters
    All they have to do is walk up to a 100 dollar table and have it all to yourselves
    I'd like someone to show me where they are not welcome at a hundred dollar min craps table with di shooting
    As long as the rules aren't broken I've never witnessed any di shooter hassled
    So save yourself 1000s of hours of practice the next few years
    You aren't making enough money to make it worth the effort

    Maybe you don't listen to them, and maybe you say you don't believe in biased dice, but, you do tout the "crap check" bet, which would indicate that deep down, you know that something isn't right. Why else would a guy that knows the math, play a bet with such a high H/E. I have played in Biloxi, and for an extended period, and the come-out crap, was more prevalent, then the math calls for. Biloxi is not the only place I've seen this phenomenon, though I never noticed it in ten years of play in Nevada. So, though you say you don't listen, your actions, say otherwise. :cool:

    Again von duck is luring a disagreement that started off as analyticsl mprovements in dice mechanics, negative or positive results into a math quiz in relations to a craps check which is totally irrelevant...as James would say, boggles the mind. And where is Td?

    If your asking for TD then you are TD, who in the hell else would need him for anything. It's not an argument, it's an observation, if a guy says one thing, but does another, and he knows the math, then there would be a reason, even if that guy, himself, does not know what the reason is. I KNOW why there is this discrepancy. If it looks like a duck, and it walks like a duck, and it qvacks, like a duck, then, it is a GD duck. :cool:
