    This is Barney

    With the LIDs intense pain running up to his hand when he tosses the dices, he is still able to play at two casino without passing out or getting crap from dealers.

    When he gets dices he lays down a black chip adjacent to his pass line bet. He then sets and grips one dices and tosses it down table and much like Twodicebelly changes set on second dice before he gently tosses it down table. Tossing one dices at time is slightly less painful and he has yet to pass out and drool on table like he does tossing two dices. The black chip for every point goes along way at these two casino although he has been back roomed at all other casinos he has tried his DI Single Die Sequential (SDS) Toss or as some casino calls it the COVID-19 on axes toss

    "Looks like it hits the back wall, but it doesn't"? :confused: P This gets better all the time, tell us more. :) I got a shot, that hits the back wall, but looks like it doesn't. :D

    "it [sic] boss gave me a hard time on roll 28 or 29..."

    What do you mean by "hard time"?

    I know of a craps player at Rivers Casino (Des Plaines, IL) who tries to miss the pyramids. When he's the shooter, the dice gently bounce slightly above the surface towards the other end of the table. Played at the table again with him on Monday night. Sometimes he's really good, other times he's a short roll machine. I've been at the table with him numerous times and he's been warned about both dice having to hit the back wall (when they miss) countless times. He'll smile, and keep shooting, and later miss the back wall again. Rinse and repeat. I have never witnessed the dice taken away from him, though I wish the boxman would have done so the other night, lol. He had an awful night shooting the dice.

    Wonder if anyone else ever tried deliberately miss the pyramids by one bounce hitting above them. Believe that was Hightower’s trick.

    I can do it on my table but it's an old school layout with 5 rows of the big alligators and I can put a laser and square to my table to make sure it's square and the back wall is perfectly flat.

    Since you can't do that on a casino table your only option is to track each individual table and figure it out through trial and error.

    For several years the main table at Harrahs Laughlin had a huge bulge in the back wall rubber on SL where the glue had let go from the wood. lol.

    as I had said I had played there for a couple of days without any problem,
    same pit boss...got the dice back and it 4-5 pass line winners and was
    doing good. on come out I placed a horn bet to cover my pass line bet and hit
    2 elevens ( luck) and set the point he leaned over the table and said no more setting
    the dice. I indicated nicely that I had been playing the same way for several days
    now and set very quickly, he said yes your quick enough but my boss is watching.
    I was using 4/6 6/4 he said we will slide you the dice with 4 and6 on top and with no adjustments
    shoot them... you can have a 4 and 6 on top and not be anywhere near the set I was using.

    Best to color up and leave.

    This is one of the better tables in the country so Saturday i will set down with the guy to see
    if I can find a way to play there.

    I met a poor soul at a Native American joint whose father named his children based on the first thing he saw after they were born. The poor lad was called Two Dogs Fucking.

    BTW I was given the nickname คุณยิ้ม when I spent three weeks setting up a materials tracking system for my company on a project in Thailand.

    The act of what I described requires so much accuracy and energy, the results are mostly random.

    I used to have a clumsy machine repairman working for me with the same nickname. He was from Arkansas so we also teased him about going to family reunions to find a girlfriend.

    In today's politically correct workplaces I'd probably get fired.

    Have you mastered bouncing the dice off the table or against the mirror with your other hand (without making it obvious, of course)? Sort of a silent protest against the casino. Make sure you do it with your other hand, though, so you don't screw up your good toss.

    Perhaps don't play there too many sessions in a row at TropLV. Skip a day and head out to one of the relatively nearby parks in Utah. Play at different times. Avoid playing (too often) when that particular pit boss is working. Vegas is 24x7. There are plenty of craps tables in Las Vegas, albeit some will likely have different characteristics from the table(s) you like at TropLV.

    In the end, their house, their rules. Either abide or play elsewhere.

    Several years ago when Linaway and I were on the phone, he told me he was speaking to another guy in Pittsburgh who has his material, and suggested I contact him and try to get together with. This guy has a table and had previously worked with Frank, Dom and some woman DI in Vegas.

    I called him and we arranged to meet at the Rivers.

    Don't remember the details, but he was late arriving and I got on a very nice roll with a shooter who made me over 1K.

    When KF finally appeared, he shot out of the 1:4/4:1 V6, had a nice long roll, and had his roll stopped by the suits, apparently for shooting too low.

    The suits pulled him aside and had a long talk with him. Don't remember the details, but I guess they feared he might be sliding the dice?

    I lost KF's number so that was the only time I got together with him

    Koko: According to Harrah's Philadelphia, someone had a 120 something roll there the other day. 122 if memory is correct.

    Was that you?

    philly must be like a 5-6 hour ride for koko.

    wanna talk luck?

    I agreed to meet my buddy in howard beach queens for coffee

    he only wanted to go to the big A to show me his new system on the bubble.(he likes to yank my chain, I taught him how to play, and he claims his negative bettingbetting is making him a winner, whatever.)

    I wasn't putting a dime into a bubble , discipline, without it Id be in trouble. But I did agree to drive, since its 4 minutes to his house from there, and I have a temp handicap permit, and without handicap parking, hed have to valet and pay, and hes too cheap.

    so hes laying some numbers, winning, losing, I was people watching, I pull off my hoodie(I wear my progressive glasses on a string around my neck) and rip my glasses off and one of the lens go flying out onto a screen next to us.
    The guy picks it up, and says, give them to me, I work in (a vision center I actually used to use years ago until my insurance changed), hows that for luck, my glasses break at the bubble and the guy sitting there makes glasses, He plays with them a second,and pops that sucker right in, checks it, tells me to put them on, checks to make sure the frame is sitting right on my face, and I thank him.

    my buddy says, wow, how lucky are you, the guy you break your glasses on FIXES them for you. That's a sign, man, gotta jump on it, the universe and powers that be are telling you something. don't waste it,

    so I hand him a 20 dollar bill, and say, ok, youre on the don't, but bet me 10 dollars on hard 6, its been 80 something rolls.
    the next roll, the 4-2 comes in.
    I say, ok, bet it again, and sure enough the next roll the 4-2 comes right back.
    so much for feeling lucky.
    the machine 7'd out 2 rolls later and he won his 100 dollar no ten bet. He left up 80 dollars, I left down 20, but I didn't want to play. so much for luck and discipline

    could of been worse, his name could have been dog takes huge dump

    before my knee went out, I was a walker, every morning, as long as there wasn't a foot of snow on the ground, I walked, and you bump into the same people every day, one ditzy broad used to stop me and say hello, and ask me why I had the brace on, and she said she likes to give all the people that walk indian names, and she chose that name for me.
    Other woman would call me man walks with big stick

    LOL,

    With my luck, the guy who would "fix" my glasses would break both lenses, then I would lose my shirt playing craps.
