Just one other at the table today.

I like having just one other at the table. Let’s me have small rest in between hands and takes the focus off me from the dealers and box for few mins.

Threw 4 hands – 48 times in total with 9 sevens 5 of those on the come out. 5.33 SRR

No rolls less than 8 count. And was able to earn a bit off all of them.

Still awful as far as I’m concerned, and the dealers always comment that I’m one of the better shooters that are regulars.

I was able to grind out a $11 win. Made the other guy a lot, who was betting big on hard ways and horns.

I think I need to adjust my betting again. I’m getting burned by WOTCO.

So glad I’m charting and I can assess what’s going on.

I’ve just realised I’m not recording hardways on my charting so I’ll fix that this week. I think I’m missing lots of opportunities there.

I’ll have to go back through my record book and calculate SRR to give me another metric to track my progress of control / influence.

But I’m more interested my rate of return which after a couple of losses is down to 1% return on my investment. Of course this isn’t the stock market or property.

But in saying that I’m still learning lots and having fun on the way.

This is the first hobby I’ve ever had that is paying me to do it.

Just one other at the table today.

I started slow to warm up but in the end it didn’t help. Shot myself in the foot repeated times with working on the come out going down on the seven.

Big issue of the day was the increase in sevens. Out of 60 rolls I threw 14 sevens with 7 of those on the come out.

That’s a terrible SRR (4.3) and I may as well have been chicken feeding them.

Doing a three finger grip, I let my fingers go further down the dice and I was adding extra spin and trying a lower shot to avoid bouncing off the table. Might try practice the Yuri for future sessions.

Even playing a DP play as I do, I could not save myself.

After analysis I can see where I went wrong.

My repeated $66 inside WOTCO falling to the CO seven.

I need to pull back when I give myself an upper cut and grind it back before trying at that level again.

And I need to stop thinking of the clock and having to make it work in 1 hour or I have failed.

I was already late and had to get back to work so had to stop just as 2 new players joined in.

Threw a final CO seven and shot myself again so just passed the dice and walked. Shameful display of craps play.

Couldn’t get out last week. Work was to much and couldn’t even spare 1 hour again.

Was very grateful that when I arrived there was no one at the table. Perfect.

I started slow to warm up.

Started with a 3 x DP progression $10 $20 $30 and $44 inside working 2 hits and down to $6 six and eight and press up and out from there.

Took an initial beating down $150, zagged when I should have zigged.

I had 3 PSO out of 11 hands.

The others of note. 22, 14, 12, 16

Then had my biggest roll I’ve ever done. 41 rolls. No one else at the table to enjoy it with me. Worked up from $6 six and eight to getting $50 for $1 on the 5 and 9

10, 6, 6, 5, 8, 5, 10
6, 8, 9, 6
7, 5, 5
8, 4, 9, 10, 5, 6, 5, 10, 9, 9, 5, 3, 5, 3, 5, 4, 4, 3, 9, 6, 2, 9, 9, 11, 3, 10, 7

I actually didn’t know what press to after that so left it at same bet to not distract myself.

Had a pile of chip vomit in front of me after that hand. I asked for a 2 min break to clean up my rack.

Had a good chat to dealers today. Before the most senior box man showed up. He’s so sour I could get more out of a lemon. Conversation stopper.

He turns his nose up at anyone that sets the dice and tries to have a controlled shot. But he tolerates until you don’t hit the back wall.

I couldn’t care less what he thinks.

I’m there to make money, and that’s what I’m going to strive to do.

I asked if the table was going to be removed. And they didn’t think so in the short term.

However since they moved the table it’s own room it’s done even less business than when it was on the main floor.

They really have set it up for failure.

I suggested the golden arm comp again and they said it would never get off the ground because it required work from the marketing dept. for a game that is only open small hours and has low profit turnover.

Oh well I’ll just keep playing for as long as I can.

Had to get back to work so had to stop just as 2 new players joined in.
