    The craps community is grieving the loss of one of the top five dice controllers in the United States. In recent years he limited himself to the Midwest and was known by his internet handle of Lone Irish Digit (LID). He had a world-class toss and great betting discipline. I remember one time in Vegas he was testing a “due number” strategy and tossed 18 yoes in a row and never abandoned his strategy by betting on the yoe. He tragically passed on a recent craps roadtrip when he got lost and was killed by a polar bear.

    The above was posted on Wizard of Vegas forum. Posted by a character with the handle "Dan Mahoney" I'm 98% sure this is a certain car dealer from Tyler, Texas. If you ever have spare time to read previous posts by this handle (Imus Pressit, I'm talking to you.), you will find some really funny material there.

    Say it isn't so.

    Unless possessing an ability to speak with us from the beyond, the next posting by LID will put this report to rest. Otherwise, RIP LID and I'm going to pull out GYBR to play Funeral for a Friend on the ride into the office today.

    I am sure we will all miss the DIGIT We should all do all we can to remember his wit and WISDOM
    perhaps he will give us guidance from the beyond
    Maybe he will guide my dice to more hard 6s and 8s
    and if he does I will hunt down that damned polar bear
    mount him and place him in Caesars Palace in place of the Caesar statue

    Please do not start a "He is risen" thread if/when LID next posts. It has been done effectively already.

    The whole story was concocted by the Russians. Just another fake news story. Maybe LID is KGB?
