    Considering the large number of Craps Players interested in knowing who is the BEST DI or Players... why not a televised Craps Championship Competition?

    If Poker is so well covered with Poker Pros... why not Craps Pros?ll More interesting than 'Bowling for Dollars', for sure.

    Well, probably nobody really cares about Craps as it is NOT a Game of Skill, like Poker. Or is Craps a game of skill?

    Slow motion deliveries. Wagering to complement the shooting expertise. Even live games so they cannot be edited for content and using Play Money in a basement somewhere.

    Real Chips. Real Casino. Real Winnings. Real Dice Influencers. Real Action being recorded for all to see. Even have various DI Instructors play against DC's.... Dice Chuckers.

    Systems. Real money at play. Live in a controlled atmosphere.

    You know why? It is like Professional Wrestling. Well, not 'like'... but is exactly like PW.

    I once proposed here that dice control be investigated by 'Myth Busters'.

    There was a thread about it.

    It went over like a lead zeppelin

    Very interesting.

    I was expecting the first post to be- "Dice Influencing Instructors have been 'banned to play', but approved to educate and train future DI's to Beat the Craps Table."

    My wife and I watched a Kansas City Tough Man match. Whoa... this was serious boxing. Some would get hit once and just lay down for the ten count. Women boxers as well. None of them took the ten count... not to be messed with on a Date, either.

    The best fighting was in the stands, just below us. Well worth whatever the cost may have been.

    We could have a Tough Man Dice Boxing Match... but it would be at the Bar Table, not a Craps Table, talking about all the money being made playing the numbers like a cheap piano.

    Koko... that was in my younger days.

    Shooting Craps was preferred over getting it knocked out of me.

    people would only watch it if some fights broke out at the table, like a shooter jumping over the rail to grab a dealer by the neck accusing him of underpaying him...stuff like that. maybe get a kardashian to roll the dice, I bet there'd be 25 thousand women watching it after that.

    You were not playing at the Downtown Las Vegas craps tables on Fremont Street in the Bad ole Good Days at the Pioneer Club.

    Those $1 tables were a draw to the worst and the worst of the worst tempered Craps Players. The dealers were still using 25 cent chips on the meager table action, with players standing on top of each others toes to get into some temporary hot action. A woman player would have been accusing the males on each side of molestation... and probably with good cause.

    I recall half dollars stacked up in the event the math saved some clay chip action... but we are talking a long time ago.

    The 25 cent chips cost the same as a $25 chip to make and the Dealers kept a close eye on those clay quarter chips. Once someone had accumulated a dollars worth... the dealer was wanting to buy them back.

    I quickly stashed them into my pocket as collectors in the Midwest were paying $2 to $3 each. Probably the only profit I made playing at this mass of smoking, sweaty and obnoxious drunken crowd.

    Ahhh... yes. Those were the days and here on this Forum... the glampers wearing 14k plated chains and bracelets are preaching they can teach you, the ignorant masses, how to WIN by controlled shots for a meager... $800 education on a home Craps Table.

    If you really want to learn... Craps... try the Joker's Wild on Boulder Highway, Henderson and watch the 25 cent chips fly, maybe now 50 cent chips... into the Player's racks with a budget of $40 for the windfall winning... beginning.

    the only time I played at jokers wild, last year, 3 dollar min, I think it was 10 times odds, we waited for table to open in morning, after winning a couople hundred bucks, the cashier didn't pay me until she called the pit boss to verify the win. (again, young pit boss, Asian kid, I believe his name was kevin?) so many pit bosses, I don't recall all their names exactly, it was either kevin or gary.

    my wife said the slot machines sucked over there, wed never go back. further down into Henderson, we went to the slot casinos, the one that looked like a haunted masion, man, talk about smoke, couldn't see 10 feet in front of you.
