Please excuse my ignorance as I have never played a live craps table since my BR can't survive the variance right now, but is it really that rude to make Don't Pass/Come bets when the table is hitting a lot of points? I see it as just playing to the lowest HE and I do not understand why people would be angry at such a thing.

    Itís rude to argue against the existence of God if you are visiting a church. Itís not rude in a formal debate hall. Superstition is the God of most Crap Tables.

    Is a Craps Table a church or a debate hall?

    Actually, it doesnít matter. Tell them if they want you to play the Pass Line, that youíll be perfectly happy to do so as long as they provide your chips.

    Didn't know superstition was such a big thing at Craps tables, I will have to remember that for when I decide to try it out at mine. I will for sure ask anyone to provide me chips if they ask me to play the Pass line though, aint nobody convincing me to not play dark side!

    When relating something I notice in a casino, I often mention race or ethnicity. It's something we all notice as gamblers I think, enough so that I don't get complaints.

    For my 2 cents on this story, I think if it was me relating it, I would have left out the racial angle, it kind of makes for an ugly story.

    Well, like I say, maybe I shouldn't be the one to say something, considering, but I wonder how many were thinking the same thing.

    The best thing is let events put these kind in there place.

    I was at a table once and picked up my DON'T bet because I went against math and had a feeling. Guy to my left is with his GF and tells me "you can't do that!" to try to impress her at my expense. I just replied, "yes, I can."

    He repeats it again and I repeat again, I am giving off the vibe of wanting to be left alone. After the third "yes, I can" guy asks the dealer about it and dealer says, "yes, he can" and emasculating the guy in front of his GF.

    I keep quiet but some older black guy to my right very politely asks me what the DON'T bet is. So I politely explain it to him knowing it is driving the guy to my left nuts.

    I have a good one.

    Was playing craps and had a good rapport with the guy next to me, celebrating high fives etc.

    When the guy got excited for an upcoming roll, he would tap my shoulder and point at the table, except instead of my shoulder he kinda reached to his right and tapped the front of my shirt. It sounds weirder than it probably was, and didnít really bother me.

    Once he had tapped me on the front like 5 times I said very jokingly ďwhat, are you rubbing my belly for good luck?Ē

    The guy immediately turned on me and started getting in my face and screaming ďI WOULD NEVER EVER RUB ANOTHER MANíS BELLY!!!!Ē

    I was about done anyway so I just grabbed my chips and left. I canít imagine what the other players/pit thought when they heard that.

    Craps players are nutso.

    Seems like the casino / dealer should have de-escalated this before it got as far as it did. Anyway, glad it didn't get any further out of hand. But no doubt that what could have been a pleasant evening, wasn't.
