Next time you or anyone else willing to book a bet like this who is going to be in the South Florida area; Send me a PM.

I will also book ANY worthwhile bets stating that my Horn % is not higher than random.

I will also book ANY worthwhile bets stating that my Hard 4 % is not higher than random.

All bets will be based on a 12 Foot Regulation Craps table with brand new casino dice. No filming/photography of the shooter but feedback to the forum will be strongly advised/appreciated.



We can't get you to fly out to Vegas? March 11 is the date all you 'influencers' can come and take the Wiz's money! It will be a blast!

Great! I can't wait to see how the March 11 Ahigh/nickolay craps symposium turns out. I am sure the Wiz and you will be able to agree on some interesting wagers after we see how the March 11 fun. I don't have vacation available the end of August, but might proxy Mike a few dollars to bet on my behalf!

I just had a great roll at the Silverton and several folks won lots of green chips. I invited Wayne, the pit boss, from the Silverton to attend the show too. He said he would be working but if it were later he would love to attend to represent the Craps pits here in Vegas and that it sounded fun.

He said he doesn't believe in dice control. He said if you look at the slow motion video, the dice are random, and that you can tell from looking basically. He is in the position to be worried about it and he is not worried.

I wanted to have him there as a representative of the casinos on the subject. He is fascinated by the discussion.

Wayne also spent time looking at my die balancer, and we've had a lot of conversations about dice and other details related to craps. He's a great guy that I consider to be a friend.

Anyway, I don't think he will be coming since we're doing this during the day, but maybe I could have another show with him on. He also wanted to bring his beautiful woman and said our ladies might have fun hanging out and "to have something nice to look at" for the show. LOL.

He's a hoot.

I already knew they aren't worried about me and my shot over there and that they don't believe that control is possible. But I think it could create some interesting drama to have all of the DI's, the Wizard, and the casinos represented at the same time discussing whether it's possible or not for the show.

it'd be nice if the various bets verified as 'on' could be split off into new threads. The moderators could throw in some of the old posts, but the bettors could start the new threads.

If the ladies are wearing bikini's (or better yet, naked) your viewership will increase substantially.
Of course I'm joking. Well, maybe just a little bit. Good luck with the show Aaron!

I'm acutely aware of the viewing habits of anonymous males on the internet.

Anyhoo. I got another Apple bluetooth keyboard and mouse and I'm actually using it right now to post up here from my 55" display from the windows machine that does the broadcasts. So I've got the Macbook Pro and a Windows machine both hooked up each with their own wireless keyboards now which helps a lot with keeping thing functioning as the broadcast proceeds.

I still have a few things to set up and I'll be doing some more shows in the mean time to get my broadcast system tuned in real nice.

I spent most of the day so far just replacing the garbage disposal under the sink as it had a leak in it. That took quite a while. Fun day.

I concur.
