Has anyone actually seen an instance on here where people were called out and backed up (or attempted to) their claims while putting money on it of dice setting influence control etc.?

About two years ago at Hollywood Columbus, an older gentleman got on a roll. It was obvious he at least THOUGHT he knew what he was doing. Consistently rolled the dice up to within a few inches of the back wall without hitting it. Made several points, hit a lot of box numbers. Was it dice control? Who knows. But since he wasn't going 7 out, the box man starting warning him to throw the dice harder and hit the back wall, which he refused to do. As I remember he was warned on about 5 successive rolls, and he started talking back, "Take the dice from me and you'll be costing all these people at the table money," trying to get the crowd on his side. Finally the box man said he was giving him his last warning. At that point, in the middle of his roll with a point unresolved, he yelled at the box man, said "color me up, I'm leaving," and that was the end of that. I have not seen the guy since...

Maybe I should of clarified although that is a funny story. I meant I have seen a lot of challenges on this forum and didn't know if anything ever came from them (I saw a reference to one but no information )

Short answer: no. Lots of people have claimed to be able to control the dice in a live casino craps game. Nobody has ever demonstrated it.

I saw where someone said something in a post about winning a 50/50 game that said something to the affect of why don't you just bet them if your confident you may end up winning like the dice controllers did
