I think people should make an effort to keep their superstitions focused on themselves and not involve others. ( I have quite a few as well) - Like I said I do respect the desire of others to keep the game flowing so I do not buy in when the button is on anymore



Insanity is not fun unless you can involve others.

just go buy in at a dead BJ or any other table and bring the chips to the craps table.

Actually, if that's your plan, they'd probably prefer that you buy in at the cage.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Either of those two actions could distort your rating, depending on how the cheques total up in the rack.

There's a lot I don't know about ratings and proprietary ADT formulae, but I do know that it matters enormously to them (ratings) that you buy in for cash (incl markers) at the table you intend to play, and the size of your initial buy-in matters as well. Bringing in chips is not the same ratings plus. Pulling out ratholed chips 1/2way through is even worse. (All speaking in terms of best ratings, without consideration of other things like bankroll management, masking plays, wonging, whatever.)

Folks, whether you want to believe it or not, Energy is real. Draw your own conclusions and hopefully whatever you conclude, it helps you win, for at the end of the day, winning is all that matters! And NEVER buy in in the middle of a shoot.. Cmon man!

Just yesterday at the Sugarhood, we had a nice game going in craps. Lots of numbers and good flow. An older somewhat homeless man with a loud nasty attitude came up to the table and cashed in 20 bucks while yelling at the dealers. Next roll 7 out. He walked away and came back a few minutes later. Same exact scenario..7 out. I kid you not, he walked away cussing and came back with another 20 dollar bill, stopped the dice rhythm again while buying in in the middle of the roll. Everyone at the table started screaming at him and cussing at him. I thought there was going to be a shooting at the hood. Well, some of us went off on our bets, and some didn't.... the next roll...yep, it was a 7. But it is just superstition I suppose.

Watch,

Sorry for those who think your post is some kind of April Fools joke, but I completely agree. For some, if you cannot see, taste, hear, smell, touch, calculate, or quantify this nebulous "energy" stuff, it must not exist.

When the Great Recession hit in 2007, I quit playing craps for several years. It was shortly after Hurricane Katrina had blown away Mississippi gulfcoast casinos (and many other local employers), and the economic situation had far too many folks far too desperate as they tried to keep body and soul together. Craps tables were filled with players betting "scared" money, carrying their last $400 to the casino in hopes of winning $100 more so they could make the rent/utility/car payment that was due the next day. Too often they made high-risk bets, and too often they lost. They completely polluted the table energy. Rolls were never long enough for anyone to win any money. And, there were just enough come-out sevens to destroy players betting the Dark side. The energy was so foul one could taste it, and it left an awful taste in everyone's mouth.

Ummm... I don't recall a "Sugarhood" casino. Can you please tell me which casino this is? Many thanx for an interesting post, even if you had to dig back more than a year for the thread you replied to.

As a darksider, that can foul you up short-term, I swear there are times the House wins against both sides without involving a disfavorable distribution of the 12. But long term it would have to take an invisible demon there at the table, to distribute an extra allotment of 7s on the come-out, and a shortage of 7-outs, at a time when there is an over-allotment of 7s generally.

Of course, it's hard to miss the fact that plenty of 7s on the come-out with a shortage of 7-outs is favoring the right-siders. I don't think you can really construct a scenario where [edit] long-term over more than just a few rolls, you can't just say the player picked the wrong side.

As for energy detection, if you think you have the ability to do it, I'd like to be there with you and make side bets about it.

Sugarhood is what I call the Sugarhouse Casino in Philly. Energy at craps tables is disastrous. Where do you play?
