    You are confused TDV when a chunker / random roller throws dice
    and has more than 6 rolls before he 7s out that would be happenstance not luck
    that would be an occurrence , luck controls nothing luck does not exist
    every time a chunker / RR throws the dice the occurrence is more an accident than anything else
    you are trying to change an uncontrolled occurrence into something of value
    NO we all know there is no such thing as luck
    some just won't admit it , it is "SUPERSTITION"

    expectation does not work out the same every time ask any SKILLED DI
    A later edit to soften an opinion that after reflection seemed rather harsh

    No need. I also have a dictionary handy but rarely consult it because I also have a device before me that can access, as The Comeback Kid so eloquently explained in another thread, the entirety of knowledge of mankind, in particular the meaning of such words as "luck" and "happenstance".

    Happenstance.
    Chance.
    Luck.
    Variance.

    All under the same umbrella.

    As you said...expectation does not work out everytime. True. In fact I'm willing to give you 100 sets to try and make it work out. I'll call it the Squanto Challenge---in deference to Thanksgiving.

    Variance will happen, IMO....we would have to consult a math guy to determine the chances of rolling exact expectations over 36 rolls. I don't know what those odds are but will assume they are low.

    We will likely get variance on each set. Whether that variance is enough to make us winners is dependent on the level of variance and the type of bets we make. The lower the house edge bets (come bets:))...the less + variance we need to win.

    It's not rocket science.
