    Oh but it does. It is what makes you a winner from time to time and a loser in between. Associating your dice fiddling with those results is the same as associating dice results with the weather. Neither one has any significant influence on the outcomes.

    Since you were the one that started the "crap" name calling, I think you have that backwards. But I agree with you that there are better things to do than continue this conversation!

    I just got back and rolled a 400 roll hand up 45k. I am the absolute hidden gem of DI. Now all you sock puppets bow down and kiss my ass.

    You rang? Being as a 26% edge sounded a tad...OK, totally outrageous I decided to run some numbers. For simplicity I assumed a bet on only one number, not both, and used a $600 bet handle (i.e. 100 $6 bets). To achieve a 26% advantage the bettor would have to win 600 * 0.26 = $156, or 22(.2857blahblah) more bets than he lost. (IIRC KJ4 came up with 18, but I don't remember, or maybe he did not say, how many decisions that was over.) Expectation for random rolling is 10 fewer wins than losses (in 100 decisions)! Although I stopped the number running there, with that much influence I should think 36 rolls should be sufficient to show influence to a satisfactory level of confidence. I should also think that with that much of an advantage in order to lose during a session of any reasonable duration you would have to have not only a dark cloud over your head but visible lightning and audible thunder to boot!
    You can't actually call anything on the claim because not even the OP knows what it means and the claimer won't provide any clarification. IOW it is completely meaningless. He might just as well have claimed, "The higher, the fewer." That said I'm with you: if 26% has anything to do with monetary advantage this guy could live the life of Riley just playing once a week on his way to the pool.
    Baloney! With no mention of the size of your penis your claim lacks any credibility.

    Wasn't it Patricia Demauro who holds the worlds longest roll? Passing Stanley F.

    Yes. She set her record at The Borgata Casino in Atlantic City.

    Stanely Fujitake set his record at the California Casino in Las Vegas. One story is the California chopped up the table and burned it afterwards. And we think craps players are superstitious!

    His record is close to another record set at the Fremont Roll-A-Thon.
    I hope I'll be lucky enough to get in on a roll like that some day.

    If the two faces come up with a desired result, it was because you put a spell on the dice and therefore you are a witch. And if not, you aren't helping other players win money and therefore you are a witch.

    Therefore, if you are the shooter, you must be a witch. :D

    See how simple it really is?
