    Anyone one can agree these are some trying times....

    BUT, anyone playing online??? building a craps table; seemingly the casinos are down for the time being

    I keep up the playing WinCraps and poker on-line ...no on-line craps to peak my interest to play

    bless up

    It's pretty easy to cheat when you do simulated craps play at home.

    I Imagine that if I resort to some tossing at home, I'll win at least 50K if I ignore a few sevens.

    Hope everyone is staying healthy and keeping away from other people during the crisis, although I don't see how the ladies will be leaving LID alone. :)

    I suggested several days ago we need to start organizing some fade craps games but, with this social distancing all we can do is talk about it.

    Where did the term "fade" come from??

    I've been practicing my knife and ax throwing as I think it might come in handy living in ground zero within the next few weeks

    Its funny how all of you believe it's almost impossible to win, but keep trying the same thing over and over saying it's the only way to play.

    I haven't touched the dice at home. Don't miss it one bit.

    When I told the wife it wouldn't bother me if we never gambled again, she wasn't impressed and I had to compromise. We may go a couple times a month once this shakes out and we may not.

    My shot is even better.Of course I have DM online dissing my toss 6 ways to Sunday. " So your shot is actually 6-7" rather than 4-6" . Your shot looks like a lob. When are you going to get serious about your UH?"

    Almost impossible to win? Well, it isn't easy, but with heavy progressions and successive winners, a small buy-in can become a huge take home. A few of these experiences allows for a lot of small losses.

    Keep trying the same thing? Whether they are right or wrong is not at issue here: Most craps players have an idea as to how to "best play the game", and likely use their method of play over and over. I would think this applies not only to the masses but also to so-called DI's and advantage players.

    No one wins every time they play. Very few people, if any, win the majority of times they play. For damn near all of us,losing predominates, both session-wise and overall money-wise. Of course there are a few exceptions, and I happen to know one.

    My post you quote above is just satire. I almost never "practice" tossing dice, with the belief that the only place results matter is with money on the table, and that "practicing" at a random event doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Your opinion might be different, and that is fine.

    I stand by my point that the at home shooter is likely to do a lot better at home than in the casino, if for no other reason, because of mulligans.

    My best guess is that FredP "coined" that term. :) Or at least can tell you who did.
