TD I've done it like that before. Around that same era (I was barely legal age to be in casinos) I had I think it was two grand on the line or maybe it was three in chips and I made a point and I needed to back it up to max odds, I whipped out in cash whatever it was and counted it onto the line, fast - well, behind the line, actually, but Fast.

Later some guy came up to me and asked me what I did [for a living], "because, you threw that money on the line like it was nothing."

You've seen Goodfellas? Robert DeNiro throwing his money on the line?

"The Irishman is here to take you Guineas' money."

It's just a way of putting your money on the table when excited.

As far as Sabre...I take it he doesn't have much to talk about in the locker room. I'm sorry to have offended your sense of decency.


If you are equating mobster actions with class or even appropriate behavior...I have no words.

It was about two decades ago and I don't recall exactly whether it was during my roll or a pause in the game.

I know the crowd went wild because we all started to win and the pit boss came over to give me his oily one arm around me con pitch, which made me laugh but I just went with it.

Over time I had ups and downs at craps which evened out but I quit pretty quickly and switched to blackjack, where winning was much easier. Craps may be a very fun and exciting game but I never found a way to win at it consistently and I gave it up.

Over all, I don't think throwing the dice out of the pit on occasion is such a big deal - shaking the bones three minutes per roll, as you described, would be though.

I hope you threw that money out during your roll. But if you did it during someone else's turn with the dice and it wasn't after a point was just decided (when the puck is off) it was simply bad etiquette.



My understanding of craps etiquette that buy-ins (especially re-buys if you have already wagered during the shooter's turn) are OK as long as the dice are still on the table.

To be clear: you don't want to delay the shooter, that's bad etiquette. If you're the shooter and you want to delay yourself go ahead.

Bets and chip buys should only be made before the dice are pushed to the shooter.

The issue is that someone is doing a six thousand dollar buy in. I dont care what casino you're playing in, but a six thousand dollar buy in will cause a long delay and it's bad news when you do it during someone else's roll.

Ever see a six thousand dollar buy in?
First the money is spread out based on denomination, usually ten bills at a time. No more than four rows of ten bills at a time. At some casinos, five bills per row. When its $100s there are four rows of ten bills then they are stacked and then two more rows of ten bills.

If there are 50s or 20s the process involves more rows, more counting, more stacking.

While some casinos might allow the game to continue with a boxman doing the counting there has already been an interruption. You also run the chance of cash on the table being blamed for affecting the dice should the dice hit the money. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad. But why cause a problem for darksiders or rightway players?

Are you saying that if you bust your rail during someone else's turn, then you should wait until that shooter's turn is over before making another prop bet ?

It's poor etiquette, a problem for other players, to buy more chips to keep playing ?

It's really hard to bust your rail during someone else's roll and the shooter still has the dice. Are you making a lot of middle of the table horn bets while the shooter is rolling 6s and 8s?

I think you're just trying to pick a fight.

The real question is are you asking for another $100 in chips or are you throwing in six thousand.

Doesn't seem that difficult, I've seen many players approach the table with just a few chips, make a line bet, then buy-in for more chips after the come-out roll, sometimes well into the pass.

I consider that remark to be a breach of forum etiquette.

Actually the real question is as follows...what is the minimum buy-in amount that exceeds the poor etiquette threshold?

There's nothing wrong with that but not for six grand. However that wasn't your statement or question. You were asking about someone busting their rail while the shooter continued his roll.

Like I said, you're just trying to pick a fight.

As long as it doesn't delay the game and the shooter.

Going back to the original post, the player was shown the door for delaying the game.

I've seen players who were allowed to bet but not allowed to shoot. I have no idea how they keep track of banned shooters, but the suits will be around to enforce it.
