not me, now, i used to be, way back in the old days (to quote a famous person)Quote: rudeboy99
On the subject of superstitions...around a dice table EVERYBODY is easily spooked...
players, crew, boxmen ( usually the worst of the bunch )...the entire mindset of the game is impacted by sometimes stupid "mojo" that really don't amount to jack shit.
Too much chance of the player leaving or otherwise not paying if it looses.Quote: RS
What's wrong with a call bet?
...In the old days the DEALERS would make you wait for a new shooter.
...Besides, the way I play (pass line and odds), why bother buying in if you're just going to have to wait before you bet?
The first time i walked up to the table the guy throwing the dice spoke up and demanded i don't buy in yet claiming if i did i would give him the "kiss of death" o_O. He then proceeded to seven-out ;)
Were you standing in the general vicinity of that shooter (i. e., 'next to')?
We've all been guilty of infractions of etiquette, however the most profound infractions are the few that affect our own concentration or rhythm.
Such interruptions may not even have been directly caused by the lapse of etiquette, rather our own furstrations and/or breaking point.
I'd have to say if there is one golden rule that might to always be aware of the current shooter and NEVER interfere with the current shooter (I like lots of room when shooting and extend that same courtesy (by stepping back slightly) to any shooter I may be standing next to.
But it is ridiculous, concentration? .......
Your certainly entitled to your opinions, however gamblers by nature are a fickle bunch.
I've seen others color out over an argument on the other end of the table. Seen another guy color out because a guy was setting the dice (and the guy wasn't taking as long as many others I see), on another day the same guy that colored-out was tolerant of most everything that transpired on the table.
I've colored-out in the middle of long rolls (when I was making money) and passed the dice, over absurd disputes that tie-up the game.
Concentration (some others might refer to it as 'the zone') may be easily broken. It's simply a matter of stress and your own breaking point to same stress.
