A little bit of lake effect snow was hitting Chicagoland last night after the main system had dropped a few inches earlier and moved on. Fortunately, driving conditions were okay so I decided to stop by Rivers Casino last night. I've seen some crazy things happen at tables in casinos (i.e., 24 straight Banker wins in Baccarat) over the years but last night there were a few firsts at the craps table. A woman playing 2 spots away from me successfully hopped the 9 (each time 6 3) with $100 bet each time on 3 consecutive rolls (same shooter). She didn't press the bet, so $100 x 15 x 3 = $4,500 winnings on those 3 successful hop bets. She gave the shooter $100 after each hit. Earlier she had hopped the 9 (6 3) for $100, hit it, but then took down her bet...and the next roll was another 9 (6 3, of course). She got plenty of crap from the dealers for taking down a winning bet after the 6 3 repeated that next roll. During the @2+ hours I was at the table, she hopped the 9 (always 6 3) for $50-$100 perhaps 20-25 times and probably hit it 10 times. Crazy. She told me the day before she had hit the 6 3 hop for $800 ($12K win), which several dealers confirmed. On the long craps table next to where I was playing, a player hit the Field bet 5 consecutive times -- each time with $25K bet (table maximum). Several friends were playing at that table and told me what had happened. That table is usually a $5 to $15 table and doesn't stock gray chips ($5K), so the chip runners had to bring some. Apparently the player had hit several large bets at the roulette table earlier and then moved to the craps table where his winning continued. Nice to be lucky, good -- or both -- at the tables. Sunday night, I made the 6 as the point 6x and the 8 as the point 3x. Shame I couldn't throw an 11 for the All All even though I threw Midnight 6x before the come out 7 forced a reset on the ATS. Of course, the very next roll -- and those of you who bet the ATS know what was going to happen -- an 11. And then another 11. WTF. Unreal. The really weird thing -- I needed only the 11 to complete the All Tall while still needing the 2, 3 & 4 for the All Small. The 3 is my Achilles heel -- it is a truly evil number and has stopped many of my ATS attempts, far more than the 2, 11 or 12 have combined. Still, I managed to close out the All Small. Just that frickin' Australian 3... That same night (Sunday), the All All hit 4x on the next craps table over to where I was playing. Apparently the shooters at that table could hit 3s & 11s (and the other numbers, of course). This year, I've noticed the All All hitting at other tables while I'm there. So if you ever see me at Rivers Casino, you might consider playing at one of the other craps tables if you bet the ATS, lol.
