everyone on this site knows that all house games are just that, house games.



I'm pretty sure that that's not true.

it's really funny, when someone posts a comment on any game that's not beatable, there is always some duche who says something about the house edge and that it's unbeatable. NO KIDDING, really. everyone on this site knows that all house games are just that, house games. posting a comment saying you cant beat the house edge is like telling a rock it cant float.



I agree with you because I can never see any casino offering any game with a players edge, bet then again what do I know. I spelled "Genius" wrong. :P

That's not true. Only s2pid comments are treated like that.

maybe not everyone , but just about. if I posted something to the effect of " I always stand on my 15 if they are two red cards", someone is going to come along and tell me my "bs" is all wrong and I'm giving the house an edge of 21% on said hand. if someone is dumb enough to do that, then explaining it to them will not help. I see this all the time at a poker table, people who think they are smart, trying to teach the "fish" just how smart they are...smacks of a lack of self esteem. imho.

Well, if you're giving someone advice and telling them to "always stand on 15", then someone else should absolutely make it clear that such advice is BS.

point being that everyone does know this or at least should....and if they don't, there isn't much hope.

the subject was Craps and betting across the board..... all craps wagers are losers.. .and commenting that they are losers is redundant... who actually thinks they can "beat" a dice game legitimately? nobody can. it doesn't really matter how the guy bets, like you so impressively pointed out that the odds never change on a given bet. who the hell doesn't know this?

The point is that correcting them isn't for their benefit. It's for the benefit of the person they're giving "advice" to.

the guy is playing Craps, he isn't going to win. the best he can do is minimize the edge, but in the long run we get it all. that isn't exactly my point, you made the comment about the house edge is always the same... and I pointed out that by posting your comment was not necessary, we all know that he cannot overcome the edge.

"WE" all know that? So you read his mind?

Go to a craps table sometime. I doubt you'll find more than 1 or 2 people (if that) who can identify the House Edge for any bet.
