Craps is random but like anything in life; some people have better luck than others.

My last 4 Craps sessions have been HORRENDOUS but in 3 out of the 4 sessions, there has been one "HOT SHOOTER", all 3 were female and had great rolls. After their rolls; I literally BEGGED the entire table to pass the dice right back to the hot shooter but nobody listened. The next shooter rolled the dice and the COLD shooting continued each time.

I just don't understand it! If everybody on the table is losing their money for HOURS, what's wrong with giving a hot shooter who just put Hundreds/Thousands back in your rack a second shot right away to hopefully continue the good luck/hot shooting? When I played Craps in Atlantic City in the early 2000s, a hot shooter always got the dice right back to try and make the table more money.

Do you believe a "hot shooter" should always get a second chance to roll the Dice right away especially on a "COLD" table?

I think this question is irrelevant to the poll question.

For the record, I do NOT believe in "hot shooters" or "cold tables".


But why not give the person who helped you win a lot of money, the chance to do it again?

Odds and probabilities says it shouldn't matter. So why not?

If she is hot, why not. Possibly win more money and get some good cleavage shot's while she's shooting.

I just realized you never said they were attractive, my overactive imagination is kicking in.

Most players enjoy trying their luck, come what may.
After all she just hit the Red, why let her do it again?
The table is hot until it's not, same with the so-called cold table.

I tend to be a team player and if someone is "hot" and the table wants to have them shoot, I will pass the dice back to them. It is fun to feel that tonight is your lucky night and for that hot shooter it is okay to give them that thrill.

If someone is "cold" and still wants to shoot, I agree with Pokeraddict and would bet the don't

Someone was at a table with a hot shooter?

Heck, sometimes when Im at a table by myself, I stop passersby to throw the dice for me!

I think it heavily depends on the person immediately following the hot shooter. If they start the precedent of passing then I would be more inclined... I mean why the hell not? On the other hand, if that person insists on shooting, then there's absolutely no reason for everyone else to pass and it's done.

Personally, if I'm ever the one immediately following a hot shooter, I take a quick look around the table. If more than one person is requesting that we give the person another chance I'm more than happy to oblige. Worst case scenario, I get the dice back after losing a few bucks in a few minutes. Best case scenario, the hot person goes on another streak and I get the feeling that I had an effect on a random set of events.

If there appears to be a general clamoring for the dice to be passed back to so called hot shooter then fine... let it happen. If in addition to being a hot shooter she is also a hottie, then by all means let it continue.

Makes no difference to me who shoots, at least in terms of the odds.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
