100x, I'd have to say you seem to be touting a session bankroll. If you find a session bankroll also sufficient for your overall bankroll, you have been quite lucky at craps.

It's good to hear from someone who has been winning!



went over my records. Had a 4week straight losing period last year:
-500, -850, -450, -1750
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)

Losing time after time can really mess with your head. In 2012 I went roughly 50 sessions with only 2 winning sessions. That made for a negative outlook on gambling in general for a while. Whenever I experience something like this, I remember that Vegas exists because the math always bears itself out. You won't win at craps, but the odds will eventually play themselves out.

That said, you should try to play games where you have an advantage - you will eventually lose every dollar you choose to bet at craps.

I'm sitting here in my bed beset with almost crippling depression because of these losses. It really came to a head this week when I tried studying for the bar exam, and had to put a bunch of things on credit cards that I could have paid cash for. I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE I BLEW THROUGH $10,000+. I ground and ground at video poker for years and kept track of every dollar meticulously -- all that "work," gone.

Craps has absolutely destroyed me and left me curled up and crying like a newborn baby. For the life of me I can't understand what made me do this or why I did what I did. It's hard to sleep nights. I know I have to get over it and start looking into the future, but damn, it's hard to take.

Considering professional counseling--at least I need a drug that will help me sleep. Got about 4 hours of sleep in the last 5 nights.

Sometimes going into your darkest place inside make you come out a better person in the long run. I did for me there was a year where I was someone I did not know or want to be. Came out of it alive and it made me a much better person today.

Fight trough it. Good luck

You should go back out with your buddy Ahigh he’s got his bankroll back playing at Jokers Wild, after all it’s only a $1 table it shouldn’t take that long to make up your $10,000 loss there, Ahigh has done a $2000, bankroll rebuilding there, in a few weeks!!!!!!!!!!
Note, all my post start with this is just my opinion...! You do good brada ..! superrick Winning comes from knowledge and skill when your betting and not reading fiction http://procraps4u2.myfanforum.org/index.php ...

The Internet is a COLD place where most people don't recognize a call for help. Teddys, by responses you receive on this thread; you should begin to realize the people that are truly in your corner and the ones who don't give two bits about you.

You know where I stand....the rest of you not willing to support Teddys by giving helpful advice but choose to stand on your soapbox and chastise a man when he's down can KICK ROCKS!
Craps is the most "Jekyll and Hyde" casino game ever invented!

Would it be considered condescending if I posted this phone number, (800) 522-4700 -- NV Council On Problem Gambling?

Called it and they actually connected me to the wrong state (phone is still registered in Ohio). Got through to Nevada and they were somewhat, though not very, helpful. I am going to call and schedule an appointment with a counselor.
