    Well....ya can chalk up Top's first victory for 2018! I promised a CERTAIN person that I would no longer patronize the Indian Casinos.

    Well...as the title says: "I just had to do it.
    Been working on a new toss (Chop Chop), & decided to take the 2.5 hour drive to test it out under Casino conditions.

    Wouldn't ya know....Old Top tossed a four point Fire Bet & exited with a very nice win.
    Lady Luck was definitely on my side as in tossing to complete the fourth number in the firebet( the number nine), one die slipped out of my hand going forward, & the other die died right in front of me.
    The Stick quickly noticed the " Balk" & called...NO ROLL!

    At the same time, the Box lady Called....5/4 nine...WINNER!

    What a way to start the year off.
    Life is good!
    This new toss worked wonders ( Chop, Chop)!
    Sitting here in a Gas station in Murphy as I type this post.
    A 2.5 hour drive ahead of me, but I'm happy, & my pockets are a little bit heavier!

    See you at The Top!

    Very nice start to your 2018 play. Did you shoot more than 1x? Glad you were able to make the trip. Start planning the next one, lol.

    I'm back home sooner than I expected! Absolutely no traffic coming home! I only tossed one hand! After the hand, I contemplated tossing another, but I smartly took " The James Hall " route, & Walked!
    There was six of us at the tables, & I actually sat there after my hand NOT making another bet. The dice were two players away, & I just decided....Fu**k it.....Hit the Cage!

    Murphy is notorious for squeezing players into only two tables!

    I actually walked around, & watched both tables for roughly 30 minutes before a Stick right 1 position became available!

    I didn't count the roll, but it had to be in the high 20's- mid 30's! I actually hit the point of four three times before finally sevening out.
    I originally started this new toss from Stick left1, but I've tossed it a LOT from Stick Right 1 as well!

    I certainly wanted to toss another hand, because the interim was pretty long waiting for the dice to come back around.

    However......I got the loot, & am very pleased with the win!

    Next trip?......Stay tuned!

    Thanks! Feels good to be counting 100's. Wish I would have been a little more aggressive with the betting, but Hindsight is always 20/20!
    My original goal was a Passline/no odds bet just to see how the toss would react, but.....ya know how THAT goes! Pretty Hard to not bet a Few numbers.
    I'm guilty as charged! I started out betting " Inside", & eventually spread to the 4 & 10 simply because I caught the 4 as a point on three occassions!

    Could have easily got the Old NutClipper, but the Craps God's had a little mercy on Old Top after that last disastrous, fu**ked up, blood-letting loss in 2017!

    Can ya say......" Back on Track"? Lol

    Thanks, TD. Yep! One thing that I noticed as I watched other players lose. Sure...ya have to ride the wave when it's good, but I think we ALL are guilty of greed!

    I cannot count the number of times that players were ahead during a hand, & NEVER regressed or turned their bets off!

    I think ya just gotta be content with a win during a hand, turn your bets off, ( during SOME point) & not fret over what ya didn't win, because of turning your bets off too soon.
    Better safe than sorry!

    During my hand, I left a Ton of money on the table after I sevened out! I don't think I was aggressive enough, but by the same token, I don't think I was cautious enough after the Seven out! Lol

    The Old "Hindsight" thingy! It's funny how that works!

    If you don’t think you were aggressive enough it means you racked goods, so it’s a good thing...don’t think about what was left. Think about what you invested and racked off.

    I do a regression on long hands especially if previous sessions were losers. In the long run you're money ahead because the second regression gives you money to play more hands in the future which gives you more opportunities to catch another long hand.

    Spot On! Think I'm gonna just take my bets down after XYZ number of tosses, & leave a minimum odds bet up, & a minimum bet on the sister number ( of the Point). THAT'S more than enough action after you've stacked your rack with some chips!

    This is Barney,

    Most greatest of wins, hope the $75 covers fuel expenses going up and down the hills. We're you using Full Presser's controlled random chop shot? The Dave will need full explanation so he can try out on new mattress soon.

    Thank you very much

    I get more disciplined every day. No more swinging for the fence. Those singles, & doubles add up to Home Runs!

    Liman said , "You did it, don't be in a rush to give it back"
    Two really good points
    1) "don't give it back"
    2) "You did it" , spot on ,
    winning is not something that happens , it's something you do

    Good job Top!

    I know that you normally play with a nice sized bankroll, so making four points no doubt involved a fairly long roll with lots of box numbers.

    With the eventual loser, no one has to tell you to get the hell out.

    Good going buddy. Between the two of us, we are 3-0 on the year.
