    question 1) , answer would be no , there would be no effect
    question 2), Giving a simple straight answer would have little result except in the situation where no answer was forthcoming , then of course some would feel slighted and would become quite agitated , which could be the exact desired result

    actually I have not avoided answering the question , you have known him longer than I have
    Take a guess as to what you think the answer is and satisfy yourself with that

    U hit on something that most assuredly is what I do. I play at 3-5 dollar tables, with min. bets and I do lack the confidence which in fact "translates" to me the lack of skill. Not afraid to admit that. I do try to toss the dice with some assurance of confidence, but the results, for the most part, do not translate into positive results. But I am trying to play to win a few bucks. Lots of things for me to still learn and so here I am. Not begging for instructions, just info to learn this here game. Either by correct betting, if there is such a thing, or learning to toss the dice with some confidence. I know there are many other things to learn, just said a few things. Just sayin.

    I am coming " Late to the Party " regards this thread -

    Hacksaw Ridge -

    Heluva a movie - even it was " embellished " by Hollywood standards -

    NOW -

    The $64K question is -

    " HOW can WE make $ at the craps table WITHOUT TOUCHING the DICE " ?

    Obviously, Wrong / Dark side Players do IT ALL the time !


    $...eE..$

    Exactly HOW does ONE - " Differentiate between Random and Influencing " ?

    Especially at the TABLE - where you have a limited window of opportunity to observe YOUR results as well as OTHERS ?

    I have MY OWN criteria regards this simple / or NOT so simple question -

    WHAT about YOU ?

    And YOU is The FORUM - NOT - solely TT123 !

    Well, Snake....you are correct. Since a session is such a short period of time at the tables, I gauge things by "Repeating numbers"!

    Even though the objective is to hold off the seven ( Rightside) as long as possible......In my opinion, the repeating of a number/s at a pretty consistent clip is a TRUE test of skill.

    Avoiding the seven, BUT having your numbers all over the place STILL gets ya paid ( betting across, inside, etc), but is it REALLY a true test of skill?

    Listen......sniping a number/s within 3-4 rolls is very hard to do, but THAT is how I measure TRUE skill.
    I have posted relentlessly that sniping ain't happening, & that's because it is so friggin difficult.

    However, if you're not hitting the number/s that ya have your money on.....your just getting lucky.

    Betting Across & inside ( yep, I AM a member of THAT club) indicates that ya really don't know what numbers are gonna hit, & that you're so damn greedy that ya have no confidence in maximizing your SO-CALLED skill, & having enough confidence to MAKE your number/s appear with your SO -CALLED good shooting.

    Now, JAMES is gonna jump all over this reasoning ( or lack thereof), because he's a All across bettor.

    Fine......I can take the criticism. I know that Rick doesn't bet Across or inside. Now, he will spread out to other numbers as the hand extends, but from the "get go"......NO!

    Frank Scoblette has stated many times that he only bets the six. Now, I know that GTC Advocates only betting the place bets of 6/8, & "Come" bets but Frank said that after 50 years of Casino play.....the number 6 is his most dominant number.
    What happens if the 6 ain't hitting? You'd have to ask Frank that question.

    Gargoil is another fine shooter that bets Across, but in MY opinion, he relinquishes a huge part of his advantage, because he DOES have a propensity to repeat numbers.

    If memory serves me correctly.....his "go to" number is the number 9!

    Once again....these are ONLY my opinions.

    You are correct TOP. I do go across from the get go and maximize on repeating numbers. However this is not a play I would advocate to everyone. I have always stated that's just "MY" method of betting and there is no right way / wrong way of betting it. I choose to do so because my bankroll can withstand it. Others may not have the bankroll and need to modify their play. Just like you, this is just my opinion. When it comes to betting, I am a firm believer with the motto live and let live. People should be free to bet as they wish with their money and there should not be a firm correct way or wrong way of betting as advocated by some on this forum.

    If someone gives me suggestions (like you have and others) then we talk about them (like we have). If someone "TELLS" me how to play and bet with my money then I will tell them to go to hell.

    By the way, Snake and mama have a certain betting style that I liked and works for them as a team. I will leave it up to him to discuss further if he wishes but when we spent times at the tables they did okay with it.
