A simple way disprove all of this is to just shatter a simple little record... Can it be done this year?

I'm not worried about the chi-squared test, pro test, or anything else... Can a dice influencer beat this record, this year?

ZCore13

is earlier than later, for each trial of course.

On May 28th, 1989, a Hawaii man walked up to “Craps Three” and set a record.

Stanley Fujitake 118 roll hand

Mr. F was a 20 year regular at the casino.

May 23, 2009

Patricia Demauro

154 rolls in AC

Only her second attempt at shooting

Is there a pattern there??

"It was widely reported in the media that, on 23

May 2009, at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City,

Patricia DeMauro, playing craps for only

the second time, rolled the dice for four hours and 18

minutes, finally sevening out at the 154th roll.

Initial estimates of the probability of this event ranged

from one chance in 3.5 billion [3] to one chance in

1.56 trillion [6]. Consensus was reached within days:

one chance in 5.6 billion [1, 5].

According to various sources, this established a

new world record, previously held by Stanley Fujitake

(118 rolls, May 1989, Las Vegas) and more recently

by a gentleman known only as The Captain (148 rolls,

July 2005, Atlantic City) [4], though the latter event

is not as well documented and was unknown to

Borgata officials.

Presumably, such events have also occurred in situations

where no precise count of the

number of rolls was kept"

Until proven, The Captain, if he ever existed, has no record anywhere of doing anything.

How true this is, you can’t take a marketing plan and turn it into a record, you need witnesses to any earth breaking record, not the hearsay of someone that is trying to market becoming a DI, so he can sell books and teach schools.

Maybe Frank can find out how to set the record and he can become the first one in the Guinness Book of World Records, I can just see it now FS sets new world record for dice control 14 rolls of the dice its official!

I was thinking about this problem the other day. The Time Magazine calculation was (36/30)^154 = 1.56 trillion which is the correct calculation for not rolling a 7 one time before reaching 154 tries. Presumably whoever did that calculation did not know how to play craps, or didn't know how to do a Markov analysis.

The correct way to do this calculation was spelled out by the Wizard, but I was wondering if there was a good approximation. By trial and error, I discovered that if we allow 20% of the rolls to be coming out rolls (for rolls over 80) then you can get a reasonable approximation.

So (36/30)^(0.8*154) = 5,690,225,965 which is just over 1% too large than the true probability of 5,590,262,513

It's a good starting point, but it is an approximation.

i was thinking about eating pizza the other day but am so glad i did notQuote:pacomartinI was thinking about this problem the other day.

tea and crackers and chicken noodle soup did the mend, thank you

but i (Sally) says this problem can easily be done with adding and multiply in a spreadsheet

i have shown this B4 too (2 or two)

maybe i links to it

you really meanQuote:pacomartinThe correct way to do this calculation <snip>

A

correct way

as there are more than one methods that produce correct answers

i personally have shown 2 ways in me past posts

SN Ethier went and found, using eigenvalues and eigenvectors, a closed form formula even

that is super super SUPER accurate from 2 to 200 rolls

we may not need any more

but to get close, glad you came up with it

fun

the record should be broken in March 2029

i have more work to do on that unless as Alan M says, Ahigh does it first!

Sally

added B4 lunch

for 80 rolls i get close with

=(36/30)^(0.7881645*80)

the average increase per roll going higher = 0.159455591

now lunch and ice cream

i mean, the one right above yours

looks to be another start

1 in 27,182,178 is the odds of getting to 117 rolls of a dice (set in Las Vegas Stanley Fujitake of Honolulu previous world record)

1 in 5,590,264,072 is the odds of getting to 154 rolls of a dice (set in Atlantic City by Patricia De Mauru current world record)

Even though I have explained to people that you are so far out on the tail of the probability curve that it is not surprising that you would break a record of 117 by jumping up to 154 (without any recorded instances in between 117 and 154), most people feel that it is counter intuitive.

yes, and those numbers are for just one shooterQuote:pacomartinEven though I have explained to people that you are so far out on the tail of the probability curve that it is not surprising that you would break a record of 117 by jumping up to 154 (without any recorded instances in between 117 and 154), most people feel that it is counter intuitive.

think of how many hands there are over a years time

at all craps tables in the world

the chance that at least one hand goes past 117 seems more reasonable, i would think
