    Just sitting here thinking about craps and other players. A month or so ago I got so irritated by another player that I wished that a seven would roll so that he would lose and leave the dam table. lol. And I had money on the passline and numbers. Sometimes other players just make me sick.

    I hate when players buy in for alot of money right next to me. Im standing there with 200 chips in the rail, up and down over the last hour and a half and this guy thinks he's gonna walk up with 3k, place a few hundred on the inside and start winning thousands.
    Um, no, it aint happening, get away from me and get off my table!

    An I hate the guy with almost no money, 20-40 chips leans over the rail throwing out some prop bets, a world, hopping the fives and all the rest on the field. Omg, please lose cause if he wins, he's going to be doing this for the next hour. Please lose and get off my table!

    I hate rubbing shoulders with people. Hate people who talk to much. Hate the ones that blame me cause they are losing money. Hate the players who hate dont betters. Hate the shooters who pick up the dice, drop them again and again and again, come-on just roll dem bones. I have plenty of hatred but thats enough for now.

    Who do I like at the table? Anyone who makes me money and a hot girl or hot dealer at the table. Nothing better than a hot woman dealer at the table.

    Once you get the oars in the water and get the table rollin, everyone become the best of friends.

    But, I gotta say the real drunk people at the tables put me off. They fumble there chips, want to tell stories to everyone that will listen and mostly can t keep their heads in the game.

    So, all you drunks out there, stay in the clubs and keep paying for you high priced bottle services. You are unwelcomed at the games of chance in the casino. Go pass out by the pool.

    I didn t want to say this; But have you ever seen anyone spew chunks at/in the craps table? I have, it is not a pleasant sight. Luckily, I was on the far end away from the activities.

    No 'hoppin' bet for whole kennels of corn! Did he even try and chew his dinner?

    What a pain in the arse!

    Much of what I dislike is already covered here. I think players who don't know the procedures/manners of the game can really be irritating. I also hate it when someone who has eaten garlic and drunk too much talks up my nose.

    OK, I've now been sufficiently grossed out. Yes, it was good that you were at the other end of that table. smh

    I told you I didn t want to have to say it. The casinos may like inberated people gambling in their establsihments. I just don t care for them myself. If a person is so wasted, I ll just leave and find another table.

    That s not to hard in Vegas. I know that casinos will toss most folks that are REALLY drunk; But that s not anyways the case.

    I have also had a drunk guy next to me piss his pants at the craps table. I guess thats better than crapping yourself at the urinating table. HA HA

    Gotta love them tourists!

    I hate when a player buys in during a run and cannot wait till the point is hit. They buy in and slow the good shooter and don't even place a bet. the house loves that play and that is why I do not tip too much. If the staff thinks that is great they can keep making that $4.25 an hour. I'm there to hold onto some money, not just give it away.

    How about players who start whining about craps being thrown and lose their place bet. I have seen those jerks too. Throw in a $1 crap and stop moaning..

    I hope when I go April 19-21 someone or myself rolls a decent hand to keep the babies from crying..

    One of my spots recently took the marketing approach to line the table with rolling stools and attract the crowd that likes to have a seat. For some reason when everyone is sitting I don't feel the same energy I do at a table with people standing. So I guess I hate the people who sit in chairs, especially if they don't have any chips in front of them and they are sitting at L1 or R1. I'll make an exception for the guy I recently played with who was celebrating his 89th birthday.

    Count me in on the drunk people, late chip throwers, and anyone who doesn't understand the etiquette and respect the game. There are nice "shoot to win" machines for these folks.

    With that being said, if I feel the irritation is overwhelming, I don't play.

    I think I may have been at that table with the 89 year old guy celebrating his birthday. I think it was at the Golden Gate, on the three dollar table. Unfortunately, he had some problems controlling the direction of his dice tosses. On one toss he connected with the boxmans head. Soon , everyone was taking cover below the table when it was his turn to shoot. Rumor has it, he threw one... connecting solidly with the extra dice tray on top of the house chip stacks, and knocking one out of the tray. That dice came up a three, along with his regular dice also each coming up threes, at which point the stickman calmly calls out.......You guessed it, NINE THE HARD WAY !

    Happy April Fools Day Everyone

    that is all

    Whenever I step up to the Craps table, buy in and place my chips in the rack... there are only FOUR PEOPLE to be concerned at the table... the two end dealers, the stickman and the boxman.

    I do not care if you spill your drink onto the table, upchuck into your chip rack, sucking on a fowl unlit cigar, fart, or look like you missed a week of showers. You can pull up your chips after a Seven Out, leave your contract bets to the dealers, or suck it up and call it a grand experience. Any of these people can throw winners.

    If you think you are superior to the crowd you are brushing elbows and sweating among, move over to the Casino table with $25 table minimums, sip some wine while playing and observe the players moving away from YOU. A $1 to $3 table attracts a different crowd than a $10, $25 or an upstairs table $100 minimum bets.

    If the dealers SUCK... I leave. They will miss your bets, payouts, slow to respond, place your bets in the wrong table position and pull down bets in error and screw up the payouts. You can avoid responding to the talkative dealer on your end... just do not reply. He will immediately stop the conversation. I never comment to a player on the table about their play. These unfortunate souls could be some of those on this forum using the "special winning systems" being hacked and spat upon other Craps players following these threads.

    So lay off the other players who share the Craps table with yourself. Prima donnas do not play Craps... they need to play Roulette. It is the rough and tumble members of the gambling establishment that can even stomach the stress that comes with the Craps game.

    Craps is probably more closely related to hunters and fishermen. You do not have to be pretty to play, just competent to stay in the game. Give me a disgusting human being who is winning house chips for me... OR LEAVE A LIVE TABLE and play Video Craps that is now available everywhere from the comfort of your home.

    You are a very nice man, Seven Out, very nice; but I have been at tables where players have pee'd on dealers, puked on the layout, spilled drinks, passed out, had heart attacks, started fist fights, and I saw one guy drop dead at the Claridge. Those aren't the kinds of tables I enjoyed playing at.

    Okay, you got me too; I do prefer to drink Belvedere vodka and wine as opposed to beer (also I have gout so beer is the worst thing for that). I also agree I prefer to play at minimum $25 tables because there are usually fewer players there. I prefer less crowding.

    I understand your opinion but I prefer to go a different way. You like the hustle and bustle of Times Square; I like the Metropolitan Museum of Art. To each our own.

    Maybe hate is to strong; more like a on going dislike or distain? Am I forced to leave the table for one ablility to control ones inhabilities and not be upset?

    As for being a fisherman? My brother posts on a fishing forum. He turns me onto some good discussions from time to time.

    http://www.lakestatefishing.com/mod...viewmode=flat&order=ASC&type;=&mode=0&start=0

    This one gave me a real good laugh...I can remember fishing before I could walk. It takes all type of beings to walk a line that is favorable to the masses.

    I have the option to stay or leave...most of the time I will stay

    If there is ONE THING I DO NOT DO WHEN GAMBLING... take any free alcoholic drinks. If my wife wants a "free drink while I am on a hot table, cold table or the puke covered layout table" I pass it on to her. Thank you. When a table gets hot... watch the bar maids show up in force, when they were scarce the rest of the play. That is the Pit Boss's job... keep the suckers playing.

    I NEVER drink alcohol BEFORE or DURING the time I have money on the table. I NEVER drink alcohol before or during a business deal. Oh yes, it will lighten the conversation and the one who can hold their consumption the best... gets the best of the other... fool.

    Spitting or peeing on a Casino employee is an assault and they WILL press charges and have your sorry excuse of a player taken out of the Casino.

    Puking on a table. So much for the Free Alcohol. Any reputable Casino will again, take any obvious drunkard off the table and out of the Casino. Head first and walking on their own is preferred...

    I do not know what dumps some of you play Craps, but obviously I must be either the least observant player in the world, or someone is making some of this stuff up.

    I have seen... several drinks over the years dropped onto a layout. Craps and Blackjack.

    I have seen... players who hold all of their chips in one hand and trying to toss bets onto the table with the other. And in the cases I have seen these players, they eventually drop them everywhere on the Casino floor and table with no body bothering to account if it is their bet, his bet or his not trusting that his chips are safer in the chip rail.

    I have seen good shooters toss one or a pair of dice that off the table. It probably was a no winner for me anyways. I do not carry a lucky rabbit's foot, a good luck charm or give a hoot what the dealers look like. If the dealer sucks as far as procedure... I leave that table to let the gawkers get a good look at the silicone implants.

    Craps is a sport not a vocation. Sometimes you come home with your limit in fish, your trophy buck or... empty handed. It is all in the game and that is why I prefer to play Craps and watch the ding bats make fools of themselves.

    I have to say, this has become one of my favorite posts on this forum. After thinking about it, I remember some "characters" that gave me a good laugh at the tables and some who made me want to hire the Lone Ranger with or without Tanto. I have seen a few near fights break out, I've seen women fall off/away from the table, several drunk college "kids", and players who actually bring their take-out pizza and eat it at the table, without being told to leave. My worst experience was when a man who could not speak much English "Bogarted" his way up to the table and darn near knocked me down trying to get a spot. Of course, I did not get an apology, excuse me lady, or a Perdoe-me por favor! So I guess my pet peeve is: Rudeness. But, all in all, Craps does have a lot of Flavor. You gotta love the game.

    P.S. I hope I never see anyone upchuck at the tables, especially if I'm shooting. ;)

    My experience at the Craps tables is limited. I've really only been doing it for about 8 or 9 months now. My experiences are really limited as the nearest casino is 1 1/2 hour away. I get to go about twice a month.

    With that being said, I've mostly had good experiences. Never seen any major drunks, anyone puking, spilled drinks, or any fights. I've seen a few rude people, and I've also seen a few characters. From what I can tell, you can make the experience what you want. I've seen quiet tables, where even with people winning, they stand there and don't say a word. I've seen loud & excited tables that with each roll (and avoiding the 7) people shout out.

    For the shooters near me (and I might not even be betting on them), I'll give them a knuckle hit when they hit a point. And if they 7 out quickly, I might offer "That's how it is sometimes."

    I haven't really run into "talkers" - I'm not one myself, but I've chatted a bit with some really great people.

    At most casinos, there is usually more than one table open, so if you don't like something going on at your current table, go to another one.

    DeMango is 100 percent right. The drunks are usually gone; the morning people have not yet come down.

    At Eldorado in Reno I witnessed a man who was feeling no pain (at the moment) being escorted from the pit by two security types. ("Escorted" may not be the proper term, for the man's foot action was inconsistent with his constant forward motion by all the laws of Physics I know.) I remarked, "There goes another satisfied customer." The dealer informed me that all the casinos in town had a deal with the local constabulary to take players in such a condition into protective custody. It keeps the customer from becoming a target on the street, and nothing goes into the customer's permanent police record.

    I can't say I hate drunks but I do hate being around them, and not just craps players, because they are totally unpredictable. One minute you are their best friend and the next minute they are taking a swing at you because of something you did or they thought you did, or of something you didn't do but they think you should have.

    I also intensely detest inconsiderate people, those who are oblivious to the negative impact their actions are having on others. Here's the closest I have come to getting physical at a table.
