I love this (posted on another board):

Seneca Allegany Casino & Hotel: experienced craps player
EXPERIENCED CRAPS PLAYER HEREWhen I arrived and found out their craps rules I was pleasantly surprised. If a player does not like what comes up on the first roll (other than 7/11 2/3) he can take his money off the table. Thats a tremendous player advantage and I had never played under rules that were that benefical to the player. There were not many players on the days I was there. Perhaps 4 including me. Most everyone was betting 5 or 10. I was betting 50. I lost $1000 in roughly a half hour. That has never happened to me at that speed ever in the 5 years I have been playing craps. I was playing safe and playing the donts and always removed my bet if 6/8 came up and always took full odds if 4/10/5/9 came up. Either I had a very unlucky day or the game is rigged. I'll let u decide which.Regards

What??? Does this apply to the "right way" players too?

You do realize, I haven't written a single essay at any time, anywhere on this site? Or do you not know what an essay is?

Anyway, my commentary on this guy would be quite short: "idiot".

That's why I bring my own dice.
I have a bewitched egg that I use to play VP with and I have net over 900k with it.

I saw one better a few nights ago: This idiot standing near the Don't Come and had a red chip sitting in the Don't Come box. If his bet made it past the come-out roll, he would call "no action" on the bet and leave it in the DC box for the next roll!

He did this in combination with a normal Don't Pass bet, which he left alone and played like normal.

I never did figure out what his supposed "strategy" was...

I'm sure the casino welcomes "experienced" players like this.

Wow. That's crazy. I've seen that happen on the 6 and 8 for the DC box but what a waste.

No kidding. I really wanted to tell him how ridiculous his strategy was, but I learned early in my (short so far) gambling hobby not to tell people in a casino how to bet.

If he is an experienced craps player, I'd hate to meet an inexperienced craps player.

Often dealers will encourage "No Action" on a DontCome bet unless the point becomes 6 or 8. This "experienced" craps player was actually removing his money when the 6 or 8 was the point. Absurd. Ofcourse its mathematically wrong to remove or call No Action on any Don'tCome bet.

He went broke fast? Yeah, I'm not surprised. Helpful dealers at that casino, I guess.
Well, he can get his money back very easily. All he has to do is get a job writing a Craps Column somewhere.
