Well, I'm the wrong guy in many ways for you. I can get obsessed with it for a while, but it does go away, seeing as how I have no real belief in it.

And as it turned out in this particular case, the particular table was all wrong for trying my new throw, as Covid concerns had them allow only three spots on the table, none of which suited me at all.

One thing that had me going was the realization that the apparent conclusion from the Wizard's work on it from years ago: it seems the slightest ability to deviate from 1 in 6 throws being a 7 will wipe out house edge. I was trying to get confirmation that I was reading that right and never got it, so there's that, but I think so.
