    Just got back home from a look at a couple of potential new cars, and like last week, stopped off at the Rivers on the way home.

    Won $155 last Saturday and pulled in another $615 today.

    Never played from behind today, going out on the Come on the guy already shooting and hitting 3 numbers before he sevened out.

    Like last week, could not get into any of the $10 tables, so played at a $15 - no big deal.

    Not a whole lot of come out winners today, and didn't even get out any big bets today, but did hit several in the 25/100 range, as I tried to keep increasing odds as I won.

    One guy who bought in next to me lost his $500 quickly place betting. He left 3 or 4 reds sit in the rail and disappeared for about 45 min before returning with another $500, which he also lost doing a lot of "outside", "inside" and "across" betting.

    Made 3 numbers on my first shoot and 1 on my second. Last shoot, hit a 15/30 ten then lost on a 15/60 eight.

    If play regularly went as it did today, I could probably make a living from the table, just like Harley.

    So for those of us who haven't been to a casino in over a year, what do the craps tables look like with covid restrictions? How many can fit at each table now, or how many do they allow at each table, and do they have glass or plastic separating each player? And assuming you've been to different casinos, do they have the same set up or are they different with the covid nonsense?

    I've only been to my home casino in Pittsburgh, the Rivers.

    Only three players per table side, no plexiglass.

    When you buy-in, they give you a shot of hand sanitizer. They spray the dice after seven out before offering the bowl to the next shooter.

    There always used to be a load of $5 tables here, but now, minimum seems to be $10, and some are either $15 or $25 minimum.

    Up nearly $800 in two sessions, so all seems good to me. ;)

    I'm no DI and don't really pay much attention to that but would guess they are about average hardness. Dice will fly off the table, but not real often.

    Played as tough of a game as I could today, but this cost me a good bit of the buy-in.

    One bet only, either P, C or an occasional DC or two. Everyone at the table was getting hammered, but the one bet player lost the least.

    Shot extremely well today 3 of the 4 times I tossed, but still lost $220 of the $300 buy-in. 3 of my 4 hands were 20 plus rolls.

    Should have bought the four on one of the hands, making 4 of them before 7 out on my line bet. Same thing with the 9 on one of the other shoots, where I made 3 of them in a row and probably 6 total before the line away.

    One guy stood at the table without playing while the dice went completely around. When he finally bought in, he either played across and lost or put out $35 HW wagers on the 6 and 8. He did hit one of these, but he still left the table busted.

    Tough day today, even for tough players.

    How did you lose when you tossed well in 3 of the 4hands you threw????

    I have a craps partner that has taken i think every class GTC has. He has a pretty
    decent shot and i think his high was 80 or 90 rolls. However during the 15 years
    i knew him 80% of the time when he comes home from a 3-5 day casino trip
    he is in the hole, sometimes very in the hole. Well over 50% he has made money on
    his shot. He bets on everyone the same as he bets on himself...period.. he no longer
    kids himself, he practices his shot every day and still bets on others, he told me last
    week he understands he is going to lose, but says, what can i saw, that is just me.

    Part of me admires his love to play craps, part of me thinks what a waste...but then again
    when i take my wife to a casino she wants to go to that does not have craps I many times
    get ahead on slots, and then lose it before i get out of the door... the casino was not built
    by smart people.

    This is Barney

    Probably his secondary quirk was dominant so he was using the wrong set for number he was trying to hit. Another possibility is his realtime bonertracker tracking device was malfunctioning due to cocktail waitress with big boobs

    I will freely admit it is my own stupidity to adhere to my one bet at a time strategy, in spite of what I see at the table.

    On rare occasion, usually only when my one bet hits a come out winner and is left flat with no odds, I will put out a come bet and have two going. Did this a few times today.

    Hindsight makes it easy to know what I should have done, but for a lot of years now, I try desperately to (1) lose as little as possible and (2) win as much as possible.

    I have always thought this is best done by (1) making only one wager and (2) progressing aggressively when winning.

    Koko, perhaps you should employ the "Pullout" strategy advocated by Dave Guacamole and Eustace. This entails going in wide and deep at the start. Then when that old, familiar feeling hits you, you pull it out except for a little amount to limit exposure and potential risk of ruin.

    See now you got right to the problem............you do something that you tell everyone
    else cant be done....so you dont believe your results and you bet on others because you
    dont believe in what your doing.

    The bone tracker or cracker or what ever the hell it is has nothing to do with craps, it has to do with
    tracking your bone. Now on your practice table that can react very differently than it will at the
    casino when there are so many boobs particulaly the ones on the other end of the table.

    So Texas did away with the masks, wonder how fast other states will follow? Without the need for masks, the whole bs social distancing thing will also soon evaporate as well....That should bring the regular compliment of players at craps tables too.............So only THREE players allowed at a craps table? Do they have the usual 4 workers at those tables too? I don't see how casinos are affording any of this....

    :confused: 6 players, 3 per side. :) Three dealers, the box dude, is relegated to wiping down empty spots, and cleaning dice. :cool: Hate to see that. :D
