If you play long enough (meaning years of playing, not long sessions) and often enough... then you will have a deep understanding of the game.

I've heard this before, and I'm truly curious.

There's knowing the odds & proper payouts, understanding the HA, respecting table etiquette, and....what's left?

I primarily play the field (making sure the 12 pays triple), but also don't pass sometimes with odds. Increase your bets a little after a loss, but bring it back down after consecutive losses. Minimize losses by having a threshold that once your bankroll hits that point, you leave regardless since it's going to be very difficult to bring it back to even at that point. Bets are awfully close to 50/50, but given a small sample size, you can be up or down pretty quick sometimes. Some sessions will be brief.

who here consistently wins in craps?

Just what does "consistently" include? It could mean coming out ahead more than half the sessions. It could mean walking away after reaching a win goal. It could mean lots of little wins yet losing that advantage to a major loss. It could mean any one of dozens of things.

Consistent cras winners are fishermen and poker players.

You think those free drinks and Tray Lizards don't cost money?

Remember Babs signature line: If the house lost every time, they would not spread the game.

The casino wins consistently, no one else does.

I think we just all need to meet up sometime and play craps together. Some things just need to be seen live. I will be in Vegas during march madness. I am also in AC and Foxwoods often.

Keep telling yourself that.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way

When I say win 'consistently', that means walking out of the casino with more than you walked in with in monetary terms. I typically look for a modest 33% on my money. I dont get greedy and I dont stay long. Losses do occur at times , but not so significant that it wipes away prior gains.

Expectations and discipline are so important. The casinos are in business not only because they have the house edge on all games, but also because most people do not walk away when they are ahead. Most people are looking to make 500% on their investment. Greed kills and pigs get slaughtered.

They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

Well, as a midwesterner who makes just one trip to Las Vegas per year (in February), a meet up is unlikely, though thank you for the invitation.

It seems I'm doomed to flounder in my shallow understanding.
