    First time for everything. Rolled a hard eight. Why? Well the right faces of each die landed face up. Bet $5.00. Rolled a hard eight. Obviously same set. Same result. Increased bet to $10 plus $5 for the dealers. Rolled a hard eight. UFB! Increased bet to $25. Rolled a hard eight. Increased bet to $50. Rolled something else. Odds of this happening? North of 1,700,000 to 1. But if the Mesa Bloviator had been at the table, somebody would have their plane payment! Might not ever do that again, but Hoover Dam, it was fun while it lasted!

    James Hall has indicated he doesn't bet on other shooters (perhaps unless he is very familiar with how they shoot and they pass muster), so he wouldn't have made any money off the multiple hard 8s you rolled (even assuming he would have been at the same table while you were there...).

    Good shooting. Always a good thing when a forum member takes money from the casino.

    The problem I showed you at G’s table, was fixed with an in-line no spin shot. Slow going, have to recalibrate every table. Whole new ballgame.

    Are you living under the bridge just West of my hometown? The last few trips after dark there has been a fairly strong fragrance of skunk emanating from there.

    If it isn't you and you're looking for supplies I'll send the GPS coordinates.

    James Hall would not have bet , "CORRECT", Has James Hall missed many such sessions
    over the years , you bet your life , but I have missed far more Point 7s
    A person could retire on the money I have saved by playing according to these rolls

    Great roll but alas I would not have been on it even had I been on the table at the time
    3 uninterrupted hard 8s would have netted over $5,000 on my betting strategies

    But just stop and think what might have happened , had he pressed it up
    and played the trend beginning to end
    If he had extracted the $5000 he could have lost the $5 many times and still been way ahead
    or put another way the $5000 would make up for a lot of small losses / $42 losses
    The tendency is to take that first hit $50 instead of pressing and look at the cost of doing that

    Sorry about the odor. My febreeze shipment from amazon via drone delivery, got splattered on a semi windshield, as it was maneuvering under the bridge. Fucking worthless Amazon pilots.

    But you’re spot on about the beer. Cheers!
