SL1

Half table of 5 players

3v set

Shooting much better. Aimed for close to back wall and much better dice dying after hitting wall. Really prefer this position.

Interesting note: a whole family was playing, Mum, Dad and kids and they had something going with the pit boss since he was asking them what drinks they wanted. In Australia on the normal casino floor you usually have to get your own drinks. I thought it strange but I didn’t have time to ask them about it. They were all bleeding chips and throwing the dice off the table every second shot. It was a circus.

They had very short hands. Bet dark on them got $10 DC set with single odds (second time laying odds – felt good – felt right). Got knocked off the DC few times with the 7. Should have done a DP instead.

Got the dice and had a 13 roll hand with 2 points.

Tip toed in with $10 PL and $22 inside

Protected bets and then started pressing but got cut short.

Still not consistent enough with toss and need to concentrate to remain focused.

Stick change mid hand. And then they opened up the other side of the table. More delays

2 rolls after and I could feel the dice not sitting right in my grip and after a totally shocking throw got the 7

Had to return to work as really busy day, so no time to play with full table, which I haven’t done in over 2 years – before I started studying craps. Was ashame as SL1 was agreeing with me.

I’ve decided that since my time is so short 30mins or less, I really need to adjust my betting on myself. I’m not making the most of my time with the dice.

With on average 3-5 players on Friday early afternoon, unless someones on a decent roll I’ll only get one or two chances with the dice.

SL2 position on half table.

3v set

Couldn’t get anything going.

Had 3 turns with the dice no more than 6 rolls each.

Concentrating on dice behaving same each toss and hitting my chosen landing zone.

$10 PL and $22 inside

Tried $10 DC a couple of times got hit by 11

Got one $10 DC up on 4 took $20 odds (my first time laying odds) and it bull frogged 4 straight back. It was a bit disappointing my first laying of odds didn’t work out. Will try again next week.

One happy camper (not me) had a $25 horn going to start and hit 3 12s in a row, not sure how much he won, as he upped his first bet, but the dealers were taking a long time to work out the payout. Once he got the money he disappeared. Smart move.

Had to get back to work so no time to try something different.

SL2 for first time and I was more comfortable than at straight out. But much prefer SL1.

One other player who set 2V and had a relaxed toss from way up high near chip rail was at SL1. Kept PSO and losing money like crazy. Was a regular as the dealers knew him. He got 2 points in 8 rolls after he disappeared for 10 mins and reappeared with more cash. Only to lose all that as well. Lessons for me not to do the same.

I had 3 rolls of 6, 9 and 7 numbers, no points made. My setting is getting better. Toss landing still moving around. Trying to find the best place to land.

Just stuck with $10 PL and was more interested in getting my toss dialled in.

However I have to stop doubting myself. Even $22 inside same betting would have done ok.

Tried a DC $10 after 3 count when I wasn’t shooting. Kept getting picked off. Tried a DP $10 got picked off.

Got beat 7 times in a row. So called it a day. Always next week.

Straight out position

3 players only on half table

Same big spender as last Friday pushing chips all over the place. He Burned through $1000 very quickly.

One guy had a unique toss reverse pincer grip no setting. Looked great but random.

Dice were jumping off the table

Was nervous again slight tremble

And was not confident in my toss which was very rough. Dice landing in different spots and rotating differently

Short rolled once

Set with all ninja craps alternate set for all sevens for co and 3v for point cycle

$22 inside with $10 PL doing same bet

Got 3 rolls in with nothing more than 4 count each

Shot dark side on one and shot my self in the foot

Played dark on the others

Never have more than 30 mins which is good and bad. But not my day to shine.

Coloured in $172 in 30mins (down $28)
