Everybody in this list, probably, thinks that they have the world figured out.

But who, in YOUR OPINION, is the most "smug" about their position on the subject of AP-by-means-of-legal-toss play?

Probably the stickman who has zero tolerance for you not hitting the back wall, but lets an old old man who can barely throw the dice halfway down the table and rolls a 7-out and everybody thinks it should be a no roll except the stickman.

Who is the most positive it can't be done. I assume trolls encompasses members of this board?

I assumed the poll was over who is most convinced that dice setting is possible.

I was accused of setting the dice once by the pit boss after I had a short run.

I thought it was who was most sure of their views, whether those views were that dice influence was or was not possible.

I had to look up "smug" as I posted. Google, "what is smug" yielded,

adjective
having or showing an excessive pride in oneself or one's achievements.
"he was feeling smug after his win"

but unJon picked up on my intent for meaning, I believe. Smugness is a confidence that is born, sometimes, of hastily developed opinions over too few samples.

My confusion was not with the word 都mug. It痴 with the phrase 鄭P-by-means-of-legal-toss play.

I STILL don稚 get it.

Now I get what the question is asking. But the first three choices leaves me confused.

Those three positions are a rotation of the crew. Does a person痴 opinion change when he goes from stick to base? Or base left to base right?



On a side note, what痴 a 2nd (or 3rd) base DEALER?

what does "accused of setting the dice" even mean?

Setting the dice is rather obvious, no accusations needed.

Setting the dice really doesn't accomplish much, lots of people set the dice.

Being accused of influenceing the dice would be a different story.

well in PA you it is up to the table captain or whatever its name is - but i think the dice at least need to do some kind of motion and cant be slid from what i think ive read

i somewhat think dice setting is real based upon the fact that its been codified in PAs laws but im a peasant comapred to all of your experience and opinions

Dice setting is real; dice control is a fantasy.

I voted for the CW: they're cyncal, worldly and can cut right through gambler's BS.

One could spend his whole day going on here answering questions that were already answered in posts long ago. Why bother when the questioner has already failed to read, has misread, or just skimmed the detailed answer that was already posted?

welcome back Ahigh

You've suggested in the past that your craps play has been hampered by casino personnel. Can you give us some details?

Whenever I play craps I only see dealers encouraging players to win... because the dealers know that winning players tip.

The only "attitude" I've ever encountered is from other players who feel I'm too slow in my throws. They want fast action with the dice toss within a split second of the stickman sliding them over. I'm pushing 70 and have to deal with some mild neuropathy and hand tremors. I also like to take a quick glance and make sure everyone has their hands out of the way and the landing zone is clear. I probably take about 5 to 7 seconds but that's not been fast enough for a couple of a-holes.
My goal of being well informed conflicts with my goal of remaining sane.

The real time wasters are those who pick up the dice, shake them in their hand, then say "come on ____ (pick a number)" OR first hand the dice to their girl to kiss or worse yet kiss the dice themselves then shake the dice in their hands-- then stop to make a late field bet-- then throw.

Dice "kissing" is a super spreader event.

When masks were required the dealers stopped it. But dice kissing is back now. So is blowing on the dice.

Ballys, AC, about 10 years ago. Young(ish) woman, high-strung, loud-mouthed in that nails-on-blackboard way, gets the dice. She takes 10 seconds to select two, then rolls them against the side, in front of her, waiting until 'her' number came up, then stacked the dice, jumped up and down three times, grabbed the dice, shouted something in an Asian dialect, and threw them with great force at the end of the tub, where one or both promptly hopped out of the tub. This happened three times in a row before the pit crew warned her to tone it down....but that was like throwing gas on a fire.

She point-outed and nobody was hurt as everyone had pulled their bets after her second throw. She did a lot of moaning about how the crew 'jinxed' her roll, but left. It took a few minutes for our ears to relax.
