    Had a guy come into the office as an emergency yesterday who told me he works craps, baccarat and blackjack tables at the Rivers.

    Although I am not playing much in the past 8-10 months, I am a long time regular and had not until yesterday ever seen this guy.

    After checking him out, asked him what he thought of the dice controllers. He shook his head, let out a laugh and said, "I can't believe that there are people out there who pay someone to teach them how to win at gambling."

    He went on to tell me that the crew will often laugh among themselves at the guys who take forever to set, grip and toss the dice and even more so at the guys with notebooks writing down all the results they see.

    Not that one person's opinion means anything, but I got a kick out of the conversation.

    Told this guy I would look for him over the weekend, and hoped to take a bunch of chips from him.

    The ones who slow the game make it bad for everyone. I have played in the past with those who don't realize opposite sides add up to seven so they have to looooook at all six faces to find the one they want, tossers who look like R2D2 with a blown servo, and those who make late bets after "analyzing the charts" .

    I no longer shoot dice with them. I like a game with a good pace of play and preferably no middle bets being made to slow down the game.

    I'll pick the bubble over a table full of players like that every time if that's the only two choices.

    Random roller PM'ed me to say he is now in Pittsburgh.

    When I called him, he was at the casino -- LOL.

    We made plans to meet there at around 5, that's less than two hrs, better get my chores done.

    I'll check back in here to report after we take a few bucks out of the place,

    A great craps player once said
    "The real money in craps , abides , in the center of the table"
    He went on to say "Look for it there"

    It's not just DI guys they laugh at. It's almost anybody. :) I once had a dealer ask me what I was writing in my pad, I told him what the dice did, and anything that I thought should be reported, and that condescending grin, came off his face.

    Actually it's a dentist and a lawyer that walk into a casino.

    Dentist: "I'm looking for a game I can get my teeth into."
    [Ambulance drives by, siren blaring.]
    Lawyer: "Me too. See ya."
