    Not JH’s 13,500, nor your 15,100 post. So many posts, so little time.

    Why was he there? He admitted to snooping around looking for me I believe he said. I think he said he asked in the sports book. Looks like he was also skulking around bubble craps.

    I advised him I don't entertain those type of situations or taps on the shoulder.

    I kind of agree with Aaron Hightower and his "chance" run in with Rick on this issue. I don't appreciate "games" like that. It's an intention to sandbag someone, put them on the spot. So I advised James...no. Won't be looked on favorably. PM or text is the way to go.

    While casual run ins happen in Vegas from time to time...this one reeked of sneakiness.

    It's not a matter of reading , I was referring to one of your posts
    from a year or so back when you said,

    "you're full of , "$#**T" 90% of the people
    on this board agree with me not you"

    You and 99% of the guys don't disagree with me
    you and they agree with a lot of what I say ,
    you just don't like the fact that I say it.

    Nope this is totally untrue , it's not that you
    disbelieve what I say it's the simple fact that
    you feel an overwhelming need or desire to criticize and contradict
    what you know to be true.
    Nope wrong again , the fact is you cannot and will not allow yourself
    to be seen to agree with or accept anything posted by me without contradiction.

    I didn't ADMIT to snooping around looking for you.
    I simply said that I stopped by to visit and asked about you
    and what was said.

    Take a roll I had from last night.....I rolled NINE 4's and FIVE 10's in the same roll(around TEN 6 and 8's, and 10 5s and 9's, then some craps rolls in between the points)...I also rolled a hard 6 with $100 bucks on it on during that roll...I rolled 4 total points, and I SET the dice the SAME way, except for on the come out rolls....The table was full, all the BOSSES were round the table...Other folks were looking over our shoulders...I probably rolled 40-50 times, SETTING the dice.....So SETTING the dice helped...

    With that said, what does the MATH say about the type of roll I had? Math says that it should NEVER happen, but it did.....Now ofcourse there have been MUCH better rolls than that, but when you roll that many 4's and 10's, it's hard to ignore the SETTING of the dice had SOMETHING to do with it......

    BTW, I was down to my last $60 bucks when I started this roll and finished up in 4 figures.....Something about a craps table when it gets going like that.....

    So MATH is great, but MATH doesn't always get in the way on the craps table.....

    Well, that’s not true. The math doesn’t say anything of the sort.

    Your roll, while high in variance, CAN and will happen to everyone and anyone. Play the game long enough and frequent enough and you'll see "math defying" rolls with regular frequency.

    If you feel you specifically caused this to happen...that’s all well and fine, but saying it can't happen without specific "cause" (I presume DI) is wrong.

    How bout this?....that's SIX 4's AND SIX 5's (12 total) in 13 rolls of the dice. Math says this should never happen?

    The fact that we know you're also TD, that's what your missing. How do YOU know Gargoil
    The math doesn't say these rolls should or will NEVER happen. What the math says is, these rolls are relatively rare, and so you will not have them very often. All of us that play, have had these miracles happen from time to time, but generally speaking when your down to your last $60 you're "dead money", but not always. The math says these runs are rare, so let me ask you, are they rare or not, be honest.
    As for setting the dice, maybe it helped maybe it didn't, there is no way to know, but, as the saying goes, setting can't hurt. One must ask themselves, why did it not help, until you got down to your last $60.
    One word of advice, let the money "gel" before you go back and take another shot at them. Assess your financial situation, and spend what you need to to catch up, anything you might have been shirking. You got lucky, enjoy it, make the most of it. :)

    six 4s = Total $7290 + 6 fives = 1992 total for a total of $9282 total
    on those 2 numbers alone with the , WOW WHACKER" Strategy.
    That ain't bad for 28 rolls.
    2 trends in one turn would it be fair to call that a double , "W W"

    Not aware of the Aaron Hightower, Rick? squeamish , but it sounds like the predecessor to yours and JH’s dustup.

    From the many back and forth post between you and JH it wasn’t apparent you both personally knew one another. So you both know each other on a personal basis?

    Nope. Never met him. I only know what he looks like based on the fact he’s posted his picture here.

    As far as I know, unless someone is surreptitiously taking my picture and sending it to him...creepy...he has no idea what I look like.

    So...I consider it a form of trolling, nonsense, bullshit “game” from him. It would be like me just showing up where you play thinking I could “just find you”.

    Ya understand where I’m coming from?
