3V set

Finally showed up and the craps table was open with just one player on it, he was at SL1.

I don’t like SL3 and SL2 was to close to him. So I took SO on the left side.

Only had $150 on me today as I didn’t have time to get more from my hidden casino stash before I left the house this morning. My nearly adult kids are dying to find my hidden stash of $100 notes.

Haven’t played with a small bankroll for a long time, so this was a challenge.

It really made me think how I was going to approach the betting. I had to be careful not to over bet.

Took it easy with the one hit can’t miss play on others.

Did a $22 inside on my first roll. And $44 inside on second roll. Then regressed to $6 six and eight after 2 hits. And built up and out from there.

Had a 20 hand and a 9 hand respectively. Not bad. Suited my bet play.

More players joined after my first hand. And one newbie went on a roll.

I had spread out to all numbers and he’d made his second point.

I said to make my bets working on the come out, but no one heard me. The box man looked over at me and the dice were in the air about to touch the table. I started to repeat my call to be on. But stopped half way as the dice had settled.

The box man was reaching for the on lammer to put on my chips.

The dice had settled on seven. The box instructed to clear my bets.

I said to Steve the box, couldn’t he give me that one. But he said no, he had the on button in his hand, however he hadn’t even acknowledged the bet verbally. Like they usually do. That’s a bet. Sort of thing.

Oh well no point fighting them about it.

I sat the rest of his hand out. It was a real shame as he hit quite a few inside numbers that would have been nice.

Made some room and coaxed more players that were watching to join in. I always do my part to bring in fresh blood to try to keep the table running.

The box said that it doesn’t matter. Because management make the decision to keep the table on other factors. But I know that if the table is packed as much as possible. Then the table should stay. I do know that for 7 years they abandoned the craps table. And made a bit of noise and marketing about it when they brought the table back out of storage. Who knows. If it’s not a slot it’s just a method of allowing more slots. More table games allows them more slots. They know where their bread and butter comes from.

Just played smart craps today, and after 45 mins realised my time was up. I was happy to get my craps fix in at last. Until next week.

Colour in $210 (+$60) in 45 mins.
