Super Rick posted a YouTube video of Casino execs listening to a short (very short) segment on Dice influence.... I have seen so many DIs use this same throw and tactics that he spoke on...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=me5vgKkFUXA


So my question is how do you walk into a casino, and believe you are going to beat them with a strategy and dogma they they have pretty much written the book on???

I believe the phrase he used to sum up his thoughts on DI were "Don't worry abou it"

What do you think???

I'm so glad this video was posted up because this guy has done way more research than I have done on this subject!

You're right. He has it all figured out. I was using sets on the comeout thinking it made sense, but he explained that it doesn't make sense.

Also, the word "glance" off the back wall. All this time I've been "bouncing."

It seems so obvious once he says it, but now I understand!

When he explains it though, it's really obvious how there are maybe three guys who can do it and nothing to worry about.

And since I'm not one of those three guys, I can quit trying.

Yay!

I wish I had listened earlier that this is impossible because I have been trying and trying when this smart guy already figured it all out!

The presenter is right... there are maybe three or four players in the world who can do it. I don't know of any who can do it consistently, though I have played with two people who have exhibited more control than anyone else -- the surgeon from Washington State and the mysterious player at Caesars who was there one time and I never saw him again.

So the casinos have nothing to fear... until dice control/influencing becomes a wide spread problem.

No surprise here. And since dice influencing and attempts at control according to the NGC are "an expected part of the game" go ahead and continue to try.

I agree with that. I think there are most people who read about dice control in a book or online who think they can do it far outnumber those who actually can. What it ultimately comes down to is that the hours you must put in to get that 1.6% edge could probably be better spent at a $50,000 an year job.

In the video he says maybe there are 3, and he says maybe
more than once. Implying there moybe none. I'm going with
none.

He said sarcastically, hoping against hope there are
really more than 3..
