Long ago I was at the Four Queens where I had \$100 on the don't come. Shooter rolls a 10. Oh yeah! Put out \$200 as odds. Turn to my friend and borrow another \$100. What's the matter with me, I could have put out another \$100 for 2 times odds? But what a beautiful sight seeing 4 black out there! Couple rolls later shooter makes his 10. (And I thought I was going to take off like Archie.)

Then went next door to Ditz , then called the Fitz. Just killing some time. Alone at a craps table I put \$5 on the line and I get five sevens in a row followed by an eleven. The dealers were nonchalant about it but I knew this was really rare. Won \$30!

Even though 10 & 4 share the same value of combinations. For some reason I always see more 10s rolled than 4s. Maybe it's randomization of 5 and 6 when each die is rolled? If you think about it, 8 uses the 6 or 5 on one die to make an eight. where 10 uses the 6 or 5 also on one die to make a 10.Obviously the probability of rolling an 8 is better but I feel it's easier to dodge the 1,2,and 3,so I always bet against the 4 and never the 10.

Now wouldn't it be great if you had those black chips on the pass at the Ditz!

You are on the Fire and shooter make the two hardest points (4 & 10) and you think you have a great shot at winning. Shooter goes out on a 6 or 8!

You have a don't pass bet and the point is 10, shooter hits it. Next point is 4 and shooter hits that. You get scarred and decide to wait for a new shooter before going back on the don't pass. Next point is a 6 or 8 and shoot goes out immediately.

You have a large \$400 don't pass get, point is 4. You decide to put a little insurance on it with a \$50 hard 4. 4 comes easy!

You only have \$200 with you and your playing donts. Shooter has a come out roll that goes something like this (7,7 12, 11, 11, 7, 7, point), eating up half your bankroll on a stupid come out roll,

You have been at the casino for several hours and you bought it for \$300 and are down \$300. You decide to just put all your money on the dont's hoping one bet will get you back to even, shooter rolls an 11 on the come out roll. I can't tell you how many times that has happened to me.

I started off playing the DC. Got behind the 10 and the shooter sevened out quickly, so I was up.

Then my wife told me not to let people peer-pressure me. So, like a dope, I started playing the pass line. When it came my turn to shoot, I rolled a six as my point and put out two place bets. Next roll? The damn seven.

To add icing to the feces cake, I walked to a Spanish 21 table - got dealt two 3s against a 7. Being too much of a chicken...ahem, feces to split them, I hit. A nine. Then another nine. I would have has 21 on the first hand - and a guaranteed win - had I used my brain.

So I got slaughtered in Windsor. And it's my own fault.

well, with craps, I always say it's bad luck to switch sides

No shame, I've been hit by every one of these scenarios as well, smh

Player walks up to the table and buys in for \$3,000. Bets \$600 on the place 6 -- and no other bets.
Five shooters in a row fail to roll at least one six.
The player loses all \$3,000 and leaves.

Next shooter.

Come out point is 6.
Next roll, hard 6 -- winner.
Next roll, come out 6.
A few rolls later makes the 6.

I am the next shooter. I make four points on the fire bet -- including the 6 twice. Plus I rolled multiple 6s during the other points.
