    Wow! Will it EVER end? All of the back, & forth heated post! For all of you ladies, & Gents that are Net Profitable, & beating the Tables.......CONGRATULATIONS, & CONTINUED success at the tables!

    For all of the less fortunate that CANNOT beat the tables, & are incessantly taking a Major shellacking..........GET A JOB, & take a break away from the tables........That's what Old Top decided to do! See you at "The Top"!

    The ONLY way to prove it is by EXPERIMENT(echo, echo, echo)....For those who say they CAN, then take a MONTH and go every day or a total of 30 times....Be DISCIPLINED and walk away when you reach your $100 goal or whatever 'small' goal you have. If you can average that amount for an entire month, then you have proven you COULD.....
    On the other hand, if you make a few bucks, break even, or are down, then you basically prove you CANNOT make a living.......
    Someone stated they COULD make $100 a day, but don't have the discipline to walk away...Well DISCIPLINE is part of life. If you could really make $100 a day go home and put it in the 'PIGGY BANK', going EVERY day for a month would be $3000......Someone try it and see if it can be done....It's ONLY 30 days....

    I must have really rocked your cradle....

    I would think after 7000 posts you understand you
    are a little to much involved in what other people write..

    I already answered the stuff from WOV.. .and I am
    more than happy to do so again.. in fact I feel good
    about what happened on the Wov site.... I placed some
    data there was called a liar by a poster just like you
    and TDV.... as I recall I called him ajerk... just
    like I have you and TDV../.... I don't regret that for
    a second... you will not no player left this board because
    of what I posted.... yet there are several very good
    players gone because of you and TDV..
    Now I am sure you cant defend your actions any better
    to this post than you could the last.

    So you will resort to some childish reply.... you want
    me to give you my wifes phone in cast you want to
    ask me is I am still beating her....

    I am always willing to help.

    Wel last week was a mixed bag... I played a poker tournament
    last Wednesday and got done at midnight, threw one hand at the table and made $210... enough to pay for the poker, dinner and
    the gas..... Saturday played at Green Bay and Menominee, broke
    even at Green Bay and had three nice rolls back to back to
    back at Keshena. Sunday I was back in Green Bay. Two sessions
    first was a small profit, second was not good with a $290 loss.

    Not a bad week, but that Sunday session was sad.

    Changed my betting system to see if I can take advantage
    of some of my better rolls more than I have been.

    Anyway getting ready for Las Vegas will be there next
    Thursday for 5 days of play.

    you talk about childish? how fucking childish is it that someone left because they didn't like what another member posted?
    someone hurt their feelings?
    I get insulted a lot here, called names, its easy to ignore assholes.
    Just don't ever reply to them and like dogshit, they will dry up and eventually blow away.
    so stomping ones feet in frustration like a 5y/o temper tantrum and then saying, ok, Im leaving, or stating this 8 times, because for some strange reason they felt we didn't get the message the first time they posted it.

    Ill bet 100 dollars to 1 dollar, all those posters that you say left, are reading this board daily, maybe 3 times daily.

    opposing opinions is no reason to leave, a damaged ego, well, that's another thing, maybe its time for people to grow a set of balls and grow up.

    You misunderstand.... that is no surprise.

    You said ..... "opposing opinions is no reason to leave, a damaged ego, well, that's another thing, maybe its time for people to grow a set of balls and grow up."

    No one left because some one else had an opinion, they left because
    jokers like TDV and Autoguy have an opinion about everything, and they are complete frauds as far as craps players......

    Now take a look at the Wov site... and here.... there is no a single
    craps player on those sites anymore than will discuss anything to
    with what they are working on...zero....

    It is because they take the game seriously.. they wont put
    up with jerks like TDV and autoguy....
    Look at the definition of jerk... it says a person that treats
    others badly, a contemptibly obnoxious person... that has TDV
    and Autoguy written all over it.... these players did not leave
    because their ego was hurt, they left because it was no longer
    worth the effort to try to discuss anything serious.

    I don't know LID.... never met him.... but I think he understands
    craps and over time has known some of the better players
    and understands some players are better than others.... ask
    him if he honestly thinks good players would put up with
    this crap????

    It is not a matter never having any disagreements on here.. it
    is a matter of respect for different opinions of how to play
    the game ..

    Find your "good players" (you apparently know them)....encourage them to utilize Ricks site and you can all revel in your skilled craps play. Discuss, trade ideas and be happy.

    Problem solved for you.

    You are here because people will actually read your posts. You don't post on Ricks site because no one reads your posts...or any posts.

    For someone who claims he's quite happy...you sure give off the impression you arent happy here. Why are you here? Life is short...find your happy place and go there. Jeez.

    I can't speak for OAP...but will venture a guess. He, like me, isn't changing and will continue to voice his opinions, thoughts and ideas.

    You can either accept that premise, ignore that premise, complain about that premise...or move on, tdb. Pick the one that most pleases you.

    Reading this board ONLY three times daily? Lol. I read this board ALL DAY LONG, every single day! Didn't leave because of being "Disgruntled"! It's simply because "We" have just about covered EVERYTHING on this forum, Dice Setting, betting Strategies, Truths, Untruths, etc!

    The topics get old & boring, even though I respect EACH, & EVERY forum member, REGARDLESS of their opinions on HOW the game of craps should, or shouldn't be played!

    Wishing success at the tables to Each, & EVERY forum Member!

    See you at "The Top"!

    Thanks, buddy! Life is good! Had to come out of retirement, & work a little bit! Haven't fired up the Tow Trucks, but dabbling in a little "Roadside Assisstance work" ( Jump Starts, Car Unlocks, Tire Changes, & Fuel Deliveries)!

    Feels good NOT to "Piss Away" extra spending money on the Casinos! Been a couple of months since I have entered the "Portals of Hell"( Casinos), & I am absolutely LOVING it!

    So are the Grand kids, since Pappa has a few extra coins to spend on them! Lol.

    Looks like I won't be headed back to any Casinos any time Soon, even though my Toss is STILL a thing of beauty! Damn shame that "Pretty" doesn't guarantee success at the tables!

    In order to have ANY chance of success at the tables, I have FINALLY determined that you must play like a Stingy fucker, & exit the Casino........AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

    Old Top USED to play "The right way', but UNFORTUNATELY greed is ALWAYS a determining factor that escalates each & EVERY Crap Player's Demise!

    Craps........VERY tough game to remain on the positive side of the ledger!

    See you at "The Top"!

    Well

    You can actually learn something on Ricks site, there is
    no doubt about that...... but a site like Ricks or this site
    belongs to all posters.....

    There is no reason decent players are not treated as
    well here as they are there..... certainly you and Autoguy
    are nearly as good as all the people there...

    I simply want every poster to be respected... I understand
    that is a terrible burden for you to handle.

    You are the one calling others jerk in just about every post....and you "simply want EVERY poster to be respected."....?

    Are you for real?

    If you put yourself above others and think of yourself better than others at craps....it's one thing to think that. Once you say it, you had better be prepared for rebuttal from those who don't think this is true. You seem to feel because you practice at craps...you are better than others. Those who feel the game is random don't hold those ideas. They think you are no better than anyone else.

    You are free to put yourself above others. When you voice that, just don't be surprised when someone objects to that. It's not disrespect. It's simply they view the game different...regardless of your claims that you say you are better.
