Session Report #46

Casino : Treasury Brisbane

$150 buy in
12ft half table
SR-6
6 players
3V set

It’s been 6 weeks since I’ve had time to indulge in my Craps. I wasn’t going to miss today for anything. Even just watching would be ok.

Arrived at 3pm to find the 1/2 table full again. Which is good because I want it full all the time to prove to casino management that they should not put the table back in storage.

I just watched for a bit because I could see a longish hand in flight and enjoy a good shooting display. From a guy who is a regular, which I would consider a rhythm roller.

2 important differences today.

#1 I have lost my little notebook which I track all my rolls.

#2 I thought I had $400 in my wallet but only had $150

So these 2 nuggets really upset me. I couldn’t believe it. I had reached into my bag to get my little tracking notebook and my little pencil and they were not in there usual spot in my bag. I didn’t realise how accustomed I’ve become to tracking my rolls and how much I get out of analysing the session afterwards with the data I collect.

I felt it was almost not worth going to the casino without it. But as I said nothing was going to stop me.

Next hurdle was my cash. Friggin wife and kids must have ransacked my wallet that morning.

So my usual $400 buyin was now down to $150, which meant that I had to totally change my bet style for the day, and I opted to keep it simple with OHCM. Then press up and out from there if a hand developed.

I had the option of SR-2 or SR-6 position.

Since I was playing and shooting dark I opted for SR-6 even thought it’s my nemesis position which I can’t throw very well from.

They were breaking in a new dealer but she was experienced so no issues there.

It was your basic grind session. Not much to report. Up and down.

A couple of my Don’t Come bets didn’t travel because the dealer forgot. I keep an eye on my bets. Of course next roll after that was the seven. Both times they tried to take my DC and I had to remind them they didn’t push it to the box number. They paid me.

I don’t say anything of course up front in case the number repeats, at which I have argued the other way that they can’t take my bet because they didn’t move it when they first should have.

I know being a dealer is hard work. So in the end whatever the box says goes.

My only hand of they session was a 10 roll, shooting dark. Got one point and all inside numbers. Everyone was getting excited and always remarks dark side shooters are the best shooters. I still haven’t worked out why? If anyone knows let me know.

Was just making a nice come back after a few early losses and my time was up and I had to get back to work. Oh well.
