    If you can find 3/2....which you still can, it’s just more difficult, simple basic strategy takes it down to about .5%

    Better than craps.

    Is Jacob even around?
    Server errors have become intolerable again.

    Why is everybody talking about "server errors" when we haven't seen those for months now? :confused: You don't mean, oh no, not that again. Hope it doesn't get me too. :)

    Rules are good at red rock. Up 2300 this morning. Back on the black side of the ledger. Double deck with good penetration. 3/2 for bj and das allowed.


    Wife hit 5 bingos this morning too.

    Be sure to take some date verifying photos. Something that will give us the feel of being there, you know. :)

    Yep, and if you count you know if you have an advantage or not. Doesn't mean you'll win but it takes a lot less of an advantage to overcome .5% on BJ than it does to overcome 9.1% on a hard 6 or 8.

    Sunday morning I played craps for about an hour at Red Rock on the table that is closest to the bar entrance in the middle of the casino. Just me and one other person the whole time.

    The other guy must be a regular since all the dealers knew him. He was betting $600 across, $25 pass line with max odds, 25/25/25/ ATS and $25 on all the hardways. Most of the time he didn't want to shoot.

    On the hard ways he parlayed the first time and double up pressed the second. I did hit a hard eight twice one time. Never made the ATS which is normal for me if I'm tossing halfway decent.

    I broke even, he lost a few thousand, we both decided to quit at the same time. Ended up tossing left handed overhand into the high hook. I'm pretty sure the table isn't quite level form the way my underhand toss was behaving. Since we were leaving that day I didn't feel like taking the time to figure it out.

    All the other sessions were either on the end table or the one on the cashiers cage side and closest to the bubble. They were all chop too. Very few real short hands and no long hands of 20+

    When I have time I'll start a new thread with table conditions of the different casinos we visited. I'm still trying to catch up in the shop and have an auction to get ready for this Saturday.

    The wife was in Cape Girardeau this week so I had her scout the Isle of Capri.

    Bubble machine is gone. She couldn't find it and the crew at the craps table told her it had been removed. I forgot to ask her to see if the craps table was regular or crapless.

    it's just information Eagle. It's summer. Some people travel and take vacations. It may be useful information for someone to know what a particular casino has and doesn't have for games.

    Thanks to information Edwardky posted I found Cape Girardeau and Harrah's Met as better choices for me than Southland Park and Saint Louis.

    How about the casino you go to? Number of tables, open 24/7 limits etc?

    if you happen to meet an OTR trucker at a craps table they are also an excellent source of information. A trucker I ran into last winter at the craps table at Prairie Meadows also told me Southland Park has a panhandler and lot lizard problem.

    So, Mssthis1 likes the fact that ""Bubble machine is gone, so sad!"

    Carry on folks, as Casino's will devote ""floor space"" to whatever gizmo produces the Greatest return for them.

    Looks like ""Bubble Caps"" is not pulling it's weight...

    Jimmy Parker and Leon are magnets for lot lizards
    They throw themselves at the boys when Leon rolls into the lot in his cessna
