Hard SIX!!!!!

The Universe loves you today.

You are on the table 20+ rolls and counting, and you are feeling great. But as we all know as players, other side of the table begins to feel the same way... Across the table, the bets have increased all the way around. You have the lucky newbie killing himself to put his 400 bucks in green 25 dollar chips dead smack in the middle of the Field. You have the savvy veterans with their passline/come bets out and max odds on them. And Last but not least, The Dark side players who have Maxed their Dont pass bets, with the chips sky high, just to recoup their losses from your quick Points you've made.

Now with all of the chips on the table, do you alter your shot just a little, or do you just let the dice rip and smack chips... Does it bother you if someone places chips in your shooting spot? Does it bother you when Dont players stack their chips high to "distract" your shot? (i had to laugh at myself on that)

Does "The money change you?"
What do you guys think?

As a grip-it-and-rip-it shooter... not much can be changed there. Though I admit some amusement in destroying large stacks.

I try to ignore the chips. It does affect my game if I lose my landing zone. I can usually shoot around them. Sometimes I hit them though. Not always a bad outcome. I like it when the point is made after I hit chips.

The chips themselves don't bother me. Late hands with people changing at the last second does. The chips will hold still. Kinda feel for the newbie but in this lesson, greed kills.

The dark side guys, this ain't their first rodeo either, you already knocked them off their perches once or twice and now it's almost personal. I think they are actually hoping you lose.

As much fun as it is to knock them off again, the casino's radar is bleeping on you, it is probably time to wind this thing down and leave before the tap. It's been a good roll, take your bets down and make yourself happy. The savvy vets will pick right up on your's coming down, the dont's gotta go with the math.

The two minutes it now takes to pay the hops and props is crimping the game anyway.

How did we ever get on this crowded of table anyway?

My millionaire friend will bet anyone at golf for more money than they can afford because he says they almost always choke. I wouldn't put it past him for lying about the rules or lying about what someone did to win though.

I have so much fun doing this.... The high stakes instantly makes them nervous.

Doyle Brunson claims he made as much playing golf
as he did playing poker. He never ever chokes on the
final holes and his opponents always did. He would
give them amazing breaks if they played him and he
always won. He did it for decades and got hurt about
10 years ago and hasn't played since.

Lee Trevino, the golfing great, once said that you don't know pressure until you make a $20 bet and have only $5 in your pocket.
