    What would be the one thought you would leave behind.
    Something you would like people to know that would aid them
    in their quest for a more satisfying game ?

    What would have to happen for
    a game to be totally satisfying?

    That would really be a hard question to answer.

    From what I have seen I would say if you like to gamble and
    play craps with the boys...… gamble and play with the boys
    and dont screw around with dice control or any class, books
    etc.

    To be satisfying?
    Are you satisfied with just playing for fun or is satisfied only winning.
    I'm only satisfied with winning. I play with only bankroll that doesn't affect my monthly debts. Therefore I don't play for fun. I don't need the winnings from gambling to make my payments. I HATE to lose. Hate is a powerful word.
    My parting words would be to get an advantage. If you don't have an advantage then you will lose because the casino will always have an advantage unless you can turn the tables on them.
    You need to screw the srr to your advantage. You need to play perfect strategy and count cards in blackjack or why play either game.
    So, be satisfied playing a negative expectation game and losing or play a negative expectation game and try skewing the odds in your favor. There is no in between

    I would say DON'T listen to anything that ANYONE says advising an All Across bet...out of the Gate. I would also say to know YOUR limitations, NOT settle for mediocrity, but BEWARE of " those" that have delusions of Grandeur, concerning Dice Influencing.
    I would also advice them about the "Toxic" air in Mesa!!
    Just kidding!!! Lol

    Last, but not least...I would advise them to stay away from guys like Top that don't believe that you can Assult Casino Vaults, Regularly toss 10 roll hands, play Craps for a living. Play craps when you need money, or play craps to make your plane Payments.

    Oops....I almost forgot.....I would also advise them to NOT...under ANY circumstances, go on a Craps forum, & post Chip stacks of winnings FROM ANY CASINO..UNLESS you want to play an April Fool's joke on the forum members.

    When you’re playing keyboard Craps, try watching porn at the same time and doing the wow wacker simultaneously. Seems to satisfy the Mesa Troll.

    You basically answered your own question.
    IOW you must ...
    1. make a list of all the factors that affect your enjoyment of a session, either positively (e.g. profit, playing time) or negatively (obnoxious players/dealers, incompetent crew).
    2. prioritize that list, preceding the negative factors with "avoid".
    3. research methods/strategies that accent the factors with the highest priority.
    I have related the analogy used by a Kansas City dealer using the handle mykey on the Usenet newsgroup. He ignored DI but it can be applied to his analogy by changing the ratio of pleasure to pain.

    Totally Ignore the Nay-Swayers, like FredP, TDV & others on this thread!

    Just because they typically Lose$$$ @ the Craps Table, does NOT guarantee that you will lose $$$ @ the Craps Table.

    After all, the Nay-Swayers have a substantial record of losing $$$ @ CRAPS, as verified by their Blatantly NEGATIVE postings.

    When you get that advantage ride that horse as hard as you can and don't tell a soul.


    When I was at Rhythm City on Sunday morning I overheard a floor supervisor telling another player that they were taking that one out Sunday night. Another opportunity gone.

    Looks like I'll need to figure out a way to venture up to twelve 4's neck of the woods a couple times a month. Do they still have the Interblock machines up there?

    Nope...tell EVERYONE that you are an advantage player. Join a Craps forum, & gleefully tell ALL that you beat the Casinos on a regular basis.
    It wouldn't be right not to help others that are needing the help.

    Just ask James....he'll tell ya how to help others beat the Casinos.

    Eat a flaming turd WITHOUT condiments, & enjoy your new Mattress in the back seat of that Pimped out truck.
    Ya don't have to pay for emmissions on those older trucks do ya? Congrats!!!!
    At any rate....your well versed toss should allow ya to buy a new one in a few months, or so.
    Just continue to chart the tables for those " Funky" dice, & follow the teachings of the Mesa Crew.

    Remember: Without PROPER instruction.....you'll be headed for self-destruction.

    Silly me. My apologies....Eaglecry/Harley...with all of the excitement, I somehow got side-tracked & didn't answer your question.

    Provide one post of mine that will help other craps players out there?

    Well....here it is: STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM HARLEY/EAGLECRY as you possibly can. Don't lend him money, & definitely don't trust him to watch your Craps table for ya while you're out of town.

    One more thing....under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you allow him to sleep in your back yard.

    Now......Are ya satisfied?

    Interblock was still there about three weeks ago and it was functioning, but it was almost impossible to find a seat and lots of smokers. It’s only a six seater and the casino was super busy for a Thursday, long lines at the players club all day long. Bus loads of slot sluts at the curb. Barney would of had a woodie for sure. I’ve been trying to get back there, but life keeps interfering. You might call the slot manager and make sure it’s working and still there before heading up. He will call back.

    Some random chucker had a hot roll and hit the All. One guy had $25 on it. Nice payout. The shooter was stick left and the big winner walks over and fist bumbs him. A stick right player who had $5 on All, handed the shooter a green. The table was full and it seemed everyone was on the All, since it took forever for all the payouts. Lots of hootin and hollerin and full racks.
