I keep meaning to ask. What does "short stick" mean in craps? You guys mention it a lot.


It's very slightly related to another expression I had to explain to you -- the one about a woman flying a plane upside down.

The dealers are sometimes bored and want to entertain themselves and each other.

Sure there is short sticking to get a better view of breasts but then there is short sticking just to make a player reach for the dice.

I don't have tatas but sometimes I do get a sore back. A particularly cantankerous stick person makes me reach way out for the dice every time even when I ask to get them delivered closer to me. Anything to make it harder for me to get the dice. Far away, way past or jammed up against the wall. I have asked enough times and often the stick pleads ingnorance, but I am convinced it is just plain meaness. I am terminally nice and have tipped every time I can remember since my youth [ a benefit made possible by union wages].

Short stick ie; dealers an a..hole. Need Ahigh to come play with me to get even,and Babs to give the place some class.

I had never heard the phrase before myself. In the Wiz's video on craps he says it is when a dealer doesn't move the dice too close to the edge so a well endowed chick's tatas hang out to get the dice.


I'm going to add to what petroglyph had to say, dealers in all of their wisdom think it's funny to screw with the shooters, and making them reach way out for the dice is one of their many ways of screwing with the shooters. It's almost an art that get passed on to new dealers as they sour on their great jobs, that they hate!

Unfortunately petroglyph gets to see a lot of that kind of stuff where he plays at in Laughlin, NV. The dealers leave a lot to be desired there.
Most of the time you will see it with the good looking ladies, being short sticked. If the stickman is putting the dice out of your reach, just don't pick them up, tell them you have a bad back and you can't reach them! It's their job to get the dice back to where you can reach them!

Short sticking can be a way of throwing the shooter off their game, as it takes them out of their shooting spot to get the dice. Some of these dealers are only working to get the tips off the other hard working dealers that take pride in their work. They know that all they have to do is show up for work, and they will get their cut of the tip pool, sharing tips was one of the worst things the casinos did, it took away the incentive of becoming a good dealer. Some of the dealers shouldn't be working in the casinos, with their bad attitudes, and bad working skills.

They think that their job is to stand their and talk about anything but what is happening on the craps tables. Some do everything in their power to get the shooters to seven out. In one of the casinos that petroglyph get to play at there is a dealer that is always reciting part of the Gettysburg address!

He is always saying the phrase "Four score and seven years ago when the shooter is shooting, he things that he is funny, as most shooters never want to here the word seven when they are shooting, this clown, cost the other dealers tips!

When I was in Laughlin, and playing on the same table with petroglyph I had the dealers up on my bets, and as soon as I heard this particular dealer reciting part of the Gettysburg address I pulled all of my dealer bets down as the were under my control.

He had the nerve to say something to me when I did that, I just laughed at him and told his fellow dealers, that he just cost them all of the tokes I had up for them! Then I went on to tell him he might have thought that he was funny, but it didn't fly with me, and if I was you I would be looking for a different job. That he shouldn't be dealing craps!

Now I know that most of you will say that by having someone say the word seven, can not get a shooter to seven out, and that is true. The dice do not know that this clown is saying the word seven, but I do, and it's being disrespectful to the shooter!
Note, all my post start with this is just my opinion...! You do good brada ..! superrick Winning comes from knowledge and skill when your betting and not reading fiction http://procraps4u2.myfanforum.org/index.php ...

Just play normally,engage the crew in conversation / banter, and impart your information to their young minds full of mush over the course of your craps session.

That seems to be how everybody else communicates with a craps crew.

Dark side has usually been reserved for mafia. You must go hash hash with pit boss if you want to be a don't player. House wants you to do the same thing and expect different results. You might yell on top of your lungs to help yourself to win. They would love you and label you as another idiot. God forbid you'll try to think of how to beat the game. My advice to you people, get a can of beer, seat at one of the slots next to craps table and watch these imbeciles, playing the game for hours. Bet you, some of them will even attempt to kill themselves over the loss.
