    Just got back from a 5 day trip to Vegas. The trip was successful as usual ( TD insert sarcastic comment about owning a casino here ) and worked my usual 204 across for 4 hits then regress ( TD insert BS remark here).

    Tried a new straight out toss that a friend of mine showed me and it seems to work successfully on certain tables but not on others. Notes taken for next trip.

    The downtown Grand is going thru some changes. People got laid off while I was there and games run from 2 PM to 2 AM weekdays and 10 AM to 2 AM on weekends. The new management will eventually do away with table games and fill it with slots. (I hope not)

    Best rolls were at the downtown Grand, LVC and Plazo.
    No more details after this post since the regular negative folks here will call BS and I don't have have time for negative people in my life.

    "Successful as usual".....:rolleyes:
    When stories are told like this, it comes off like an undercoverdice slug story.....

    LOL...like clockwork. As planned. Always. Never lose.

    I thought you said you were leaving the board for good?

    A true DI wouldn't feel the need to brag and gloat about his wins.
    No one really cares when you preface it with "another sucessful trip"....
    Sounds beyond self serving.
    Self serving: serving one's own interests often in disregard of the truth or interest of others.

    Gargoil,

    Great Job!! keep kicking ass. I'm going today for two days and also have used your across strategy.(I know I said it sucks) I go 132 across and I use only on myself or someone in my crew. I will start the day off on the don'ts but will play Do's as well. I may go 500 across since my play money this week is rather large.

    As usual another dumb post from a dumb person. Please point out to everyone on this forum where I bragged and gloated about wins. If saying I had a plan and things went according to plan and I was successful is gloating and bragging then I think you need to go back to school and learn the English language over again. Of course on the other hand you haven't been successful in anything in your life. So you don't know how it feels. Will it make you feel any better if I lied and stated that my trip was a complete disaster? I will do it but it will not change the dollar amount I deposited this morning into the bank. ( that's gloating)

    I don't understand this hatred and negativity you have against successful people especially when I made you an offer to meet up with me and see for yourself but you chose not to. Why would I make such an offer if I wasn't sure of my DI skills? You could have come back on the board and spread the news to everyone how Gargoil failed and how big of a liar I am. You chose not to because YOU KNOW I am a success and meeting up with me and watching me at the tables would have given you a wake up call. Oh dear I can't go back on the forum and talk negative about DI's any more...

    You are a jealous of people like me and other DI's that post on this board. You are a failure in real life and in this virtual life. One big negative piece of worthless crap that lives to spread negativity everywhere you go. You haven't contributed to a single positive thing on this board. Yea I am leaving this board for good thanks to negative people like you. I thought I could actually come here on a craps forum and talk craps to others who are interested in this game but obviously the only thing folks here are interested in is putting successful people down.

    I hope you enjoy the rest of your miserable failed life. Next time I am in Vegas and see a bum asking for money, I will give him a dollar because You need it.

    Gargoil, you and TD seem to have a special feud going on.

    I think he knows he gets under your skin, so he gives it to you a little thicker than usual.

    You are no slouch in your counter attacks, so I'm ruling it all a draw.

    Try to submit a few comments and make yourself ignore any negative replies you might receive. I know its hard, I can't always do it. But looking forward and ignoring the noise around you will get you even further in life.

    The forum thrives on diversity of opinions, don't remove 1.

    gargoil, I think all TD is asking (& I, too) is that you post your losses as well as your wins. Maybe you have posted your losses. But, what TD resents and I do too, are people who come on this board and crow about their successes and are silent on their defeats. Maybe this doesn't apply to you. Just sayin'.

    He'll never report one of those. Who starts a thread about a trip report with the heading "Another successful trip..."??

    Talk about arrogance.

    Let girlgoil go to Heavys board where all those posters just scratch each other's back.

    Ouch. 2200 has to be rough. And 2000. Well, errgh, if it makes you feel any better you can write those off on your taxes (if you have a net loss)... I lost $100 last Friday at the LV Club and Monte Carlo and felt pretty crappy about it. I lost a few bucks playing that stupid Aruze machine as well. I can't believe how crappy those machines are. I can only guess that we'll be seeing more of them in the future.

    Yeah, one of the pit Falls of being a So-called DI. Your Toss is releasing Perfectly. You're putting the Dice EXACTLY where you want them. You think you have it all figured out, because EVERYTHING looks Marvelous. You load up on your wagers, & then........ BAM!!!!!! "Seven Out", Line away, Pay the Don'ts. This is why I say that no matter how Perfectly you are tossing....... You just NEVER have the advantage over the casinos. That Hand ending Seven Out comes at the Most inopportune Times!!!! Catch a few PSO's, start chasing losses, & before you know it, you've Dug an inescapable "Grave". Unless you have an unlimited Gambling Bankroll, Huge Bets are NOT the way to go. You may have an OUTSTANDING run of fortune, But Eventually the PSO's & Short Hands are gonna catch you.

    During my last good stretch, I went almost six Consecutive months Dodging the PSO's, & short hands. My Toss or Resolve NEVER wavered. Was Tossing "Jam Up" damn near every friggin Session. Never overstayed my sessions. Walked away either a Huge Winner, or VERY slight loser, & then........ BAM!!!! Shit happens, & sometimes it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the mechanics of your toss. In retrospect, the more refined my tosses appeared, the Worse the Results. Contrary to popular Belief, You can toss Magnificently & still receive Horrible Results. Has nothing to do with Having a Second watchful eye to ensure that you're really tossing correctly. Nothing to do with you being Mightily Mistaken, thinking your toss is Supreme, when in actuality, it's Really "For Shit".

    When you've been doing the DI'ng thing long enough, you automatically know when you've executed Properly. Sometimes You're just not meant to win, & THAT'S THAT!!!!! Not saying that you shouldn't keep a Positive frame of Mind, but Keep shelling out those large Bets, & it's Only a Matter of time before you'll soon regret it. Dice....... Fickle Bitches, They are!!!! Continued Success at the table Every one.

    I lost 200 on the Golden Nugget tub by the pool while watching women prancing by with bikinis and 300 dollars playing slots. Overall trip I came back with more money then I started so not sure what else you want me to say. And by the way TD is not asking for anything. He resents the fact that some people are successful at the tables. He forgets that this is not a competition of who is better but rather how can we take chips off the tables from the casino. The fact of the matter is that he had his chance to see what / how I play and he refused. That was his choice and I respect that but he continues to attack me every time I post something positive.

    Again if I wasn't comfortable with my DI skills and ability at the tables I wouldn't have extended him the offer to meet up with me. That's not bragging, that's feeling comfortable with the way I play. I am only going to be around this forum for a few more weeks until my next project at work kicks in high gear. Will probably be out of the country travelling for a while. I know TD doesn't understand the fact that some people like to go to work and love what they do for a living like I do. I am blessed with a great job and I don't want to give it up to go play craps every day.

    As TT says "Continued success at the tables".

    I love the Aruze craps machines! After playing 35+ years at tables I will never go back to a table. I can eat, talk on my phone, take pictures and video while playing, sit and kick my feet up and have headphones on all in my comfortable element.

    TDVegas - where is that "specific proof" that you live in Vegas ?!! -- were you too busy calling your drug buddy in Las Vegas to take cell phone pictures for you that you couldn't get on a plane to actually get to Vegas to meet Gargoil

    Gargoil, congratulation on a winning LV outing. TDVegas can be at times very helpful, knowledgeable, but when it comes to a DI posting a winning trip, he turns in the Grinch who stole Christmas. There is no joy in TDVegas Land, he just loves to rain on a DI's parade.

    Gargoil,
    I believe that you win money and are good at what you do,I love confident shooters and would put my money down when you shoot.
    You just keep banging away and fuck what anybody else says.

    I don't believe in Vampires but they maybe 6 or 7 that exist. Thats DI IMO.

    already been provided. Ask you pal VDC.

    You still have not verified that you are in Vegas in the house that Rick filmed youtube videos. If you have left for Texas, just say so. Vegas is a harsh mistress for a lot of gamblers. I'm sorry you "crapped out".

    Oh, you can all post a winning trip all you want. It just has nothing to do with dice control.
