    and no LID, most of us do not want to hear about the time you got a BJ while shooting. :eek:

    When I was teaching my wife how to shoot we both got a $25 10 up to 5 K and hit it and she made a 6 point fire bet in the same session.

    We weren't on the fire bet but I hit a hopping hard 10 when she set the 6th point. After she made 4 I had a feeling she was going to make all 6.

    I turned $50 into $1000 the second time I bellied up to a craps table. At Tropicana LV, that was. Oh, wait; you asked for the best thing that ever happened to me. Never mind.

    Many, many, many years ago....I turned a 100 dollar buy in into 1800............I've also had women jump into my arms when I rolled their prop bet.......... I had a young lady ask me if I would like company for the evening; must have been my clothes and possibly the black chips.....this occured at the Dunes.

    I'm liking this 777. BTW, when she asked you if you've ever played the game before, how did you respond :) ?

    The 10 wasn't even our shooting. It was the only other person at the table besides us. He was betting the pass line and 6/8, I can't remember if he made anything on that roll. I had my hands full taking care of my own bets and trying to teach the wife all the different bets at the table.

    He left after that roll and the wife rolled the six pointer. She wanted to know how the fire bet worked so I had her bet $5 on it and she rolled a 4 pointer that time.

    Another memorable moment was when we were at the Casa Blanca in Mesquite. When the stick rotated the base dealer asked him if he'd hurt his neck. I had the wife wear her "craps top" that day.

    If you want to get away with not hitting the back wall, take a hot chick in a low cut top and pick an all male crew. ;)

    Recount the steps that got you from $25 to 5K. Just for the record. :)

    Probably had no trouble avoiding hyperextension of his arm as well, even with the special stick I'm told crews have for just such occasions.
    Don't forget to deploy the distraction SO at the end away from you so she can get a good look, a very close look, at the dice...to assist the stick in making the call of course.
