Hi Craps Players,
I've been playing Craps seriously for about a year now. And of course, I'm sold on the advantages of Craps lessons and strategies that are available to all of us on youtube. There are many excellent teachers willing to share their ideas, strategies, and experience. My suggestion is that we all take advantage of this resource.

Now, a little "light bulb" went off in my brain just very recently. It is this: I can know all the various Craps details, lingo, and strategies and do exceptionally well when playing at home on my practice table, but do only mediocre when playing the real live game in the casinos.

One thing I do at home is accurately keep tract of how I'm doing ( winning or losing). This helps me decide, gives me time to think out my play, on various play options as well as odds betting. In the casinos the action is usually fast and having a plan is vital so I don't get swept away in all the action and excitement going on around me.

Also, a big realization I've come to believe in is "Trust your dice" and your "Betting Strategy." If you can do it at home on your practice table, you can do it at the casino. Of course there are extenuating circumstances such as random shooters and hard and soft table differences, and real money vs chips at home (that is big) but what about your "Trust" level?

If I don't trust my skills, if I'm not playing for the fun of it along with a positive attitude, I probably should not be playing Craps.

Yes, trusting the dice is huge. But don't forget about proper rest and hydration. Those are part 2 and 3 of what I call the triangle of craps success. I can always tell if I'm losing that one of my three sides of the triangle is off.

If you can keep all three sides stable, constant trust, good sleep at night and plenty of water, even during play, you almost can't lose. The house only has one thing for them... the house advantage, while you can have three things on your side against the house. The house never has trust, rest or hydration on their side.

I should do a YouTube video on ths.

In addition to a goods night rest, consider investing in this brace to improve the form of your roll. I know it’s for bowling but I tell them it’s for my “carpal tunnel” and they don’t mind.

If trust, hydration, and rest are the triangle of Craps success, proper form is the square underneath it that creates a house of success. Keeping that wrist steady is so so important



Ever since wearing that brace I have dialed in almost every number. Still working on hitting my 7/10 though

and hard and soft table differences,



Really truly doesn't matter....unless you are in Manila, then go with the don't at both Solitaire and the new Odaka casinos. It's the bounce that matters which as you know is generally higher on a soft table.

One thing that I love about this site, is the constant reminder to stay hydrated when trying to win at dice. It cannot be underestimated.

DeMango, that's because you do not live in Vegas. But it sure had me laughing too, but to each is own, if that is really what some guy thinks, it takes to win go for it!
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 ...

DeMango---yes, we're all over the place learning and sharing whatever seems to help all of us do better in Craps. I enjoy your humor--now days, we need humor.

90crapsplayer66,

A bit off topic but what kind of practice table setup do you have? I'm looking to do one myself and there are several options.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.
