In a perfect world, I would envision a craps table that didn't have prop bets and hop bets. The inner city casinos tend to have clientele that play them like street games. They slow the game down tremendously and confuse many of the inexperienced dealers. It is slow torture. They are sucker (lottery) bets which attract bad and annoying players.

I was at such a casino this morning. I tried to get there before the crowds came. I was there at 5.30 am. There was only one table open and it was packed. Shots of Hennessy were abundant. Guys holding cash in their hands while playing like in a street game. Hop this , prop that, etc. The one dealer looked like it was his first time dealing craps. Nervous and fumbling chips. 5 minutes between every roll. I watched for a while as I scouted my opportunity to jump in for a quick score.

I had flashbacks to the old days when I just needed to jump in on the table and play regardless... They were not good memories. So I just turned around, grabbed a coffee and left. Although I didn't play, I feel like I already won as I know nothing good was going to come out of playing on that table. Next session is this afternoon.

So, you'd envision a Craps Table in your own house or at a friend's? Because, the casino probably couldn't afford to staff it.

Thatís usually the case at $50 tables...

Frankly, youíre not going to please everybody. Personally, I like to shoot at a $5 table. Otherwise, Iím happy at a $15 table.

What do I mean by that? If Iím shooting, itís $5 plus full odds. My place bets I start at $15/$18.


And I avoid crap in the middle!
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.

This is Barney,
I am speaking for the greatest Dan Mahoney ( a professionals player of the craps) who tells me the prop bets are the very, very bestest bets on table. He says that the most greatest player of the craps (in this solar system) the amazing Las Vegas Supperick learned it to him years ago. One must take what tables is giving you and if prop bets are hitting you should be betting them and making much monies and chips which is what ladies like very, very much.

Dan use to think prop bets were very, very bad bets but after tossing about 20 yoes in a row one day in the Las Vegas without betting on them because the math says it's a very, very bad bet he changed his tunes. Thanks to the greatest Supperick advise he now knows to take what tables is giving regardless of the maths or stupidity.




Thank you very much

Craps dealers know this cautionary tale all too well, "The darker it gets outside, the darker it gets inside."

How dare you Dan Baloney is the greatest craps player of our time. You would be lucky to deal to him or be in his presence during his craft of the dice rolling.
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.
