Rather than make a new thread each time I make a video based on one of my demo games, I'll add them to this thread.

The latest one is on the craps basics, name the pass, come, and odds on both. Craps is a difficult game to explain, so please go easy on me. Have a look and let me know your thoughts. The video is still in "private" mode, so I don't mind editing it or just starting over.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Good entry.

For starters, wow! Hot shooter! Had you made this video at a live table, when it was over the right betters would have hoisted you on their shoulders and paraded you around the craps pit. It's fortunate you weren't making a don't pass/don't come episode.

Secondly, as someone who explains how to play craps on occasion, I think you're wise not trying to teach it all at once. Eyes glaze over. It's frustrating. At its core craps is a very simple game, and yet all the attached bells and whistles create difficulty making this point (no pun intended). So yeah, a series of bite-size lessons is best.

For critique, I think when you switched to the come line you might have reinforced that it's the same wager as the pass line by reiterating that if the next roll is a 7 or 11 you win, a 2, 3 or 12 you lose, and any other number becomes a come point. Also note that when you finally went 7-out at the end, the come line payed.

P.S. What happened to the Crazy 4 Poker video?
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Thank you for your comments, which I agree with. However, I don't think it's worth remaking it and plan to make it public.

Here is the Crazy 4 Poker video.

At around 8:05 there is an error. I believe you said at 3 of a kind or less when you meant to say less than 3 of a kind?

This is my longest and probably worst video ever. It is on reading baccarat scoreboards -- a total waste of time. Not an easy to explain, thus the length.

when using a small cursor in a video with lots of white, I would highly suggest at least
using a program like Cursor Attention 1.4 (a windows free program).
I have used it many times and it is really a great idea for those to be able to see the cursor very quickly.

Thanks for the suggestion. By any chance, is the appearance of the cursor configurable in windows without downloading anything?

Yes, go to Control Panel and choose the Mouse option. There are many pointers to choose from.

Thanks Rich, I did just that.

Please enjoy my new and improved Three Card Poker video. This one has a working "win" field and a larger cursor. I welcome all comments before I make it public.

I use windows 10 and just right click on the lower corner windows button (start) and select 'settings'
and you will see Devices on the upper right side
click and follow follow follow

The 'halo effect' program is easily customizable too
and easy to play with and records very well.

keep videos coming. You do very well compared to many.
way better than no videos at all.
