I heard that Honey Boo boo might drop by.

Hey, maybe you can "accidentally" drop a hive of wasps on her, or "accidentally" run her over with a lawn mower.

That would go viral, and give you the attention you seek.

Just sayin' ...



I don't know anything about what you're talking about. Is this some show you watch or something?

Honey Boo Boo is the progeny of a dysfunctional attention whore who is blissfully clueless that her idiocy provides schadenfreudesque entertainment for viewers.

I came across the program while channel surfing: it is dreadful, and not a program I watch regularly.

I use Mr. Antennae. I don't have cable.

http://mrantenna.com/lasvegas/reviews/

This guy is great. I pay zero for television service (I do pay for Netflix streaming though). But I guess I miss out on some quality programming.

You can even see a review I submitted for him as I was one of his first customers. Anyone in Vegas should consider doing this if they want to get rid of this terrible programming out there and/or if you find you pay cable just to watch what is already over-the-air (newcasts, superbowl, and what-not).

Again I will ask you the same question, so is it luck or is it skill when you are shooting?

Again, I thought you would already know this. But luck matters the most in the short run, and edge matters the most in the long run (assuming you're flat betting and consistently).

Almost all runs on the craps tables while you have the dice are short. Especially when it is busy and/or when you don't have the table to yourself.



Let me ask you this question relating to the below quote. So are you telling everybody here on this board that if you weren't shooting at home on your own table with no distraction you wouldn't be getting the same results, because in a casino you would have chips in your way, players doing stupid things and what ever else bothers you?

So while I'm at it just one more question. Why don't you play when the tables have players on them?

The MAJORITY of the time I play in the casino, I am the only one at the table. Sometimes there is one other person. Maybe two.

But when it's full table, to be honest, I do more watching than playing these days.

But if I do play, in the short runs or in crowds, and when I am betting bigger money, I'm gambling just like everyone else and I love it.



Curious minds want to know!!!!!!

If I continue to get the same results recording my rolls, I would say that it is plausible that I have enough skill to overcome the edge, which means that I can theoretically continue to have a possibility of winning money no matter how often I play provided I don't sign up for too much variance to ruin it for me (IE: odds). This is theoretically the result of theoretical skill. Even under these circumstances, if I take high variance bets, luck will overpower the fact that I have overcome the house edge.

Overcoming an edge and having enough variance with free odds bets to eclipse any small edge on the other bets (whether the player's OR the casinos) are COMPLETELY independent things. Variance, in general, is not my friend. I want to grind up..smoothly.

It seems you don't understand that. Even after 100,000 rolls, with 10x odds, you can still come out ahead because the variance can overpower the edge.

Similarly, if I have twice the edge of the passline bet in my shot (2.82 to my side equating to 1.41% advantage after taking off the house edge) luck can go against me just like it can go against the casino if I bet max odds with my edge!

But on a very serious note, if you don't understand this and I have to explain it to you, something is wrong, bro!! Really! Are you asking me this because you don't understand or because you think I am so skilled that luck doesn't matter. I think maybe you need to get off your little high horse asking questions like this. It doesn't make you look good at all.

I like to focus on what I am doing. I also like to interact with the dealers. I also don't like it when there are too many distractions. I don't like it when there are chips in my landing zone. I don't like it when people are running into me.

And just like above, why in the world would you possibly have a legitimate reason to ask me why I prefer an empty table? I like empty tables, dude!

Your dice rolls that you have posted shows you are hitting your points higher than average.
# points established 463 (ev of 454)
passed: 209 (ev:188) about 2SDs better than average (1 in 38)
missed: 254

total pass: 346
total miss: 335

Just a pass line bettor would be up by betting your rolls. The more odds the higher the profit.
say $5 pass line bets

No odds
+$55 (better than a kick in the groin)
($60 draw-down)

2X odds
+$604
345X odds
+$1,110
10x odds
+$2800
20X odds
+$5545 ($315 draw-down)
100X
+$27,505
($1475 draw-down)

Many Craps players would rather make a few extra come bets instead of taking too high odds
(345X odds tables have many players just taking 1 or 2 X odds, but making more come or place bets - more fun for more action)
or just placing some numbers (like the 6&8 at the minimum)
Their net results will be different

Of course, to duplicate this the next 2400 rolls would be even more impressive. See what happens.

It would be even better to see actual dice rolls from a real casino. That really is the bottom line.
What is stopping you from collecting and posting your actual casino dice rolls?

They insist you place a wager to roll in most casinos.

Because that question is to point out to you and anybody else that doesn't understand what you are doing, it's not the same at home as it is in a casino when you are shooting! For some odd reason you just don't get it. Everything you show is at home with no distractions!

Trust me Ahigh, ever question I ask is only about what you wrote that I see as a way to explain what you are writing just doesn't add up; and to show that you are just random.

They tell me that you always use the same set and that you are not trying to throw 7's on the come out rolls, well if that is true then all the 7's you throw are losers. In your mind or anybody else that can't see that, I feel for them. You can't say just because the seven was a come-out roll and that it didn't changed your SRR, maybe you will have to admit it just like my good buddy The Madprofessor did, that you made a mistake about your SRR., when he defended his SRR of his claim to fame of 28 for years. How embarrassing for the so-called DI's out there. Their hero going down in flames about his SRR!

Now that would have never happened if it wasn't for a very few guys questioning about his SRR of 28 claim to fame.

I don't get offended when someone points out that I'm wrong, everybody is not picking on me by doing so, Grow up!!!!!!!!!! Do all the research you can, then present it to the world even if you do not prove anything at all. Then when someone does question you you will won't have to say it was luck or bad luck, that you rolled those 7's, and it had nothing to do with your research was done at home. Lets see some real data taking from when you play in the casinos and while your at it tell everybody up front that you do not try to roll 7's on the come out rolls!

From Ahigh's posted dice rolls
http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/craps/12821-ahigh-show-tuesday-at-7-30pm-pacific-time/13/#post216796

Total sevens 361 - Seven outs 254 (70.36%) - Seven winners 107 (29.64%)
(107 verified in WinCraps)

The probability of any 7 rolled being a 7 winner is just 165/557 (29.62%)

361 * (165/557) = 106.9389587

Looks dead on without trying
Wow! What is the chance that with 361 7s rolled, exactly 107 of them would be 7 winners??
About 4.5937% or 1 in 22


Yeah, time now for real casino dice roll data

So now you're comparing and contrasting me to the Mad Professor.

Look, I think in spite of all your criticisms of the Mad Professor, he doesn't have the habit you have of attacking other people.

I'm not surprised that I am being the target of your attacks at this point in time.

I'm glad you're not offended, but I just don't give much value to anything you're saying up here.

In fact, I could call _you_ one of the great "fiction writers" .. and "so-called DI's." You fit the description of your own loathsome terms!
