    which is significantly better than having all wagers swept simultaneously off the table, with or without previous winners, no?

    This is Barney,

    I am doing very, very well but poor Eustace is incarcerated in hospital. The LID took my car and parked it down by the river and later told me to start it up and bring it back to the garage. However, I was most busy playing with one of my goats so I asked Eustace to get car for me and for the most strangest reason when he started it up it somehow blew up. I am leaving for hospital now to check up on my bestest friend Eustace.


    Thank you very much

    Don't tell us you ignored the recall notice! Did you at least have your coat and hat with you? Oh, and would you pass this to what's-his-name?

    If ya wanna win more than $7-$9 wins per place bet.....BET YOUR SO-CALLED SKILL LEVEL.
    I wouldn't give a Rat's Ass as to WHO says WHAT.....If you are TRULY a SKILLED shooter, you are doing yourself a GRAVE injustice by monkeying around with $5-$6 bets.

    Nope...NOT saying that ya have to " bet the farm", but.....REALLY? A HIGHLY skilled shooter starting his/her bets at such a miserly level? Lol. My Ass hurts, & NOPE...I ain't gonna see no friggin doctor!

    Sounds to ME that SOME lack confidence in their toss/skill level.

    " The way that I TOSS the dice" suggest that I don't have to put BUT $5-$6 wagers on the table gets REAL old!!!! REAL FAST.
    Wager MODESTLY sized bets that WON'T crush/hurt your bankroll, shoot the Casino's dicks in the dirt, & quickly get the fu**k out of dodge!!

    A HIGHLY skilled shooter...Right?
    Okay...so it SHOULD be EASY PEASY. Toss, collect, rack. Lather, rinse, repeat!!!!

    But, but, but, Top......if you toss like I toss, ya don't need to put more than $5-$6 on a place bet!!

    BULLSHIT!!!!!

    Oh, & by the way....Kokomo, my response was NOT directed towards you. It was simply directed towards " Those" that CLAIM to possess elite skill at tossing the dice.

    You mean those that spend their time all day behind a keyboard instead of playing?

    It’s all about confidence. If you are confident you can roll 12-15-20 times without a 7 showing....isn’t it just simple logic that you should be confident rolling one time without a 7?

    Personally, I would pile up on the initial roll....hit a box number, and leave. 1 roll. Take my winnings. Obviously, “confidence” is the key word.

    Hard for me to believe someone is confident they can avoid a 7 for a long roll...but really aren’t confident in roll 1. Hence, minimum bets on roll 1.

    When you post these things you really reveal how little understanding you have of the game , but keep it up , it gives novice players
    a scale by which to judge talent and ???
    What ever it is you guys demonstrate

    I can certainly see where it might
    What was it they used to say about that kind of , "$#^*T"
    What the hell , waas iit ?
    Oh yeah , they used to say , "THE TRUTH HURTS"
    I hate myself for saying this
    BUT THE TRUTH IS , I don't have to make large bets
    with $5 on the 6 as an example 4 hits
    has me racking $104 on that number alone or I could
    go ahead and bump it twice more for a total of $468

    Thems what we call , "WOW WHACKERS"

    Oh and by the way , when I rack that $468 some poor unsuspecting
    guy betting the same amount for the same number of hits
    on the same table at the same time will net
    an , "EASY PEASY" $42"
    I definitely like my way better ,
    BET A LITTLE , LET IT BUILD & WIN A BUNCH

    TD...don't know if you were kidding around or not, but....personally THAT is about ROUGHLY how I attack the game. 2-3 good hits per session, &.....see ya later, alligator!!!
    I have absolutely NOTHING to prove to myself or anyone else.
    Yep....I practice tossing the dice at home. Yep...I believe in slight influence.
    Yep..I realize that it's pretty silly to spend so much time practicing at home, ONLY to stand at a table, & toss a hand or two ( Possibly exiting DEAD SMACK in the middle of a hand if the profit is substantial enough...forfeiting my passline bet if I have no bonus bet wagered).
    Listen.....I JUST WANNA WIN. LEAVE THE CASINO WITH A NICE PROFIT IN MY HAND, whilst everyone stares at me, & says: " That trembling, scary old dog!!!! Look at him run.

    Ya REALLY think that Old Top gives a shit if SOMEONE/ANYONE says I have no confidence in my toss?
    Exiting the tables quickly is certainly NOT advantage play, but.....It sure feels " Mighty Sporty" when you're at the cage counting hundreds after spending only 15-20 minutes ( or less) at a table!!!

    See you at the Top!

    Yep...ya got it all figured out. Ya probably done fu**ked yourself out of a few million, or so over your long, & illustrious career with those $5-$6 wagers, & your PURPORTED skill level.
    YOUR skill level SCREAMS, BEGS, PLEADS ya to " Send it in", & STOP continuing to wager like a " Knit"!

    Kinda reminds me of the highly skilled, but painstakingly scary Pool Player "Dallas West", who was known to run Hundreds playing 14.1 Straight Pool, & " Six Packs" playing Nine Ball.

    Well....Dallas had a guy " Stuck" for over $10,000 playing in Chicago at a place Called Chris's Billiards.

    Dallas had the " Mortal locks",.....meaning his opponent didn't have a fu**king CHANCE, or CLUE, & after every loss the guy said: " Ya wanna double up"?

    Dallas's response was ALWAYS: " Same Bet"! Lol
    My Ass, nuts, head, & feet hurt!!!

    Nope....I ain't gonna see no Doctor, either!!!!

    Everyone has their own way of playing that is literally based on MANY different wants, wishes and desires. None wrong. There is no common denominator for all of us other than walking out with more than we walked in with.

    I am willing to walk with much less profit than someone who might visit Vegas once every 2-3 months. There are so many factors to consider. There is no "one size fits all"....as much as some try to tell others there is.

    If you are pleased with your "play"....that is all that matters. Anyone telling anyone else they are playing the wrong way is a dumbass.

    I walk with many smaller wins rather than a bigger win once in a while. If I played once every 5 weeks....I would ramp up my bankroll and betting. Might even take some longer shots.

    I just wanna leave with a profit. It's never much...but a win is a win.

    Yep...you have the correct idea.
    I'll let ya in on a little Secret ( which you probably already know). Dice Influencers ( the smart ones) play very short sessions because they KNOW that VARIANCE eventually trumps good tossing.
    In my honest opinion, I think that you can exhibit slight influence over a very short period of rolls, but who's to say that it's not just positive short term VARIANCE?

    I've said many times that Demango, Rick, & Maybe ( G)....can't recall if ( G) writes down his Casino results or not are probably the only guys that REALLY know if they influence the dice or not.
    As for me...I have no fu**king clue, because I'm never at a table long enough to dinstinguish between Variance, & influence.

    Toss to the best of your ability. Keep your sessions VERY short ( win or lose), & head either for the Cage or the exit!!!
    Easy Peasy!
