SL1
Half table
2 players to start and went to 6

3 new players at the table really slowed things down. Bad bets, late bets and hands all over place interrupting the shooting.

Glad I was at SL1

Thinking back I was never like that. I only played dark side no odds, which made it easy for me to not get into trouble.

Had 3 ok rolls today.

2 regulars had good hands.

The newbies were apart from getting in the way, farming the field and were enjoying the wins and not realising they were actually losing more than they were winning.

Did a couple DC action bets on the newbies.

Went in softly with $6 six and eight on the regulars. No SIA (Shoot It All – One Hit Can’t Miss) strategy today. Take and press and expanded out. Worked ok with $12.

Also did a couple of $22 inside on regulars that didn’t work at all. Oh well.

Concentrated on my own shooting. 3 finger over hand. But today I let my fingers go to bottom of the dice and not the top. I’ve been trying that a bit in practice to see the difference.

I was keeping the dice mostly together with not to much back spin, just focussing to get them neatly to the back wall.

Hands were 12 rolls, 10 rolls, 12 rolls respectively.

Did $10 PL with $44 inside and pressed one unit first then 2 units to get to 5 units then take and press.

Felt comfortable with that, so didn’t push it like I’ve been practicing from 2 to 5 units in one go.

Stuck around a bit longer than normal but the table was filling up and I had to return to work. At SL1 I should stay longer as I was getting comfortable with the position and the toss I was using. No dice off the table today.

The mad Russian was back and really got upset when one of the newbies got in his way to place a late $10 field bet. Of course 7 out. Even the dealers were warning the guy that he would get upset and he didn’t disappoint.

Just as I was leaving, the guy who gave me $25 to bet the hard ways couple of weeks ago came up to the table. Would have enjoyed shooting with him again. I said hello and thanked him for it again and told him I would have enjoyed hitting some hard ways for him again.

SO left side
Half table

Just 2 players. Myself and an older Asian guy with his wife at SL2

Been practicing at SO so wanted to see how I’d do.

It was a fast game with just 2 players especially because we were not doing prop bets.

First 2 hands of mine were ok 8-10 rolls each, started with $10 PL and $22 inside. Made some money before 7 pressing one unit at a time.

Trouble was the dice kept jumping off the table. And I mean repeated no rolls. Even the box man was giving me tips. But not getting upset prob because no one at the table.

I got so sick of it I lobbed a bit harder one throw landed on the angled edge bottom of diamond and one dice jumped back into the dice bowl with the other dice.

I joking said same dice. Everyone had a little chuckle.

Since I was up a bit I thought I’d try something I’ve learned over at Heavy’s Axis Power Craps forum that I’ve been practicing at home.

$10 PL and $44 inside

Then on first hit press up 3 units by dropping $1 or $4 depending what number hit to get up to 5 units.

Alas it wasn’t to be and I 7’d out at 4 rolls.

But I can see the merit in it for when you need to back yourself.

Tried to recover a bit before my time was up.

But couldn’t make it happen – needed more time and evidently way more practice.

I should have moved to SL1 and asked the other guy to move over a bit.

I find SO is very hard. 12ft table. I really need some advice so I’ll take a video and maybe someone can see where I can improve.
