just got to md casino and started playing craps.
drunk guy next to me started annoying me.

moved to other spot. then apparently it was amateur nite and someone started singing (offkey) on a small makeshift stage. and/or the speakers SUCK.

drove an hr to play. didnt want to play for only 15min and leave.

so how to clear my head and start enjoying playing again?
(already walked a lap around the casino. didnt help much.)

100xOdds i feel your pain. Having to deal with situations that get you out of your zone can sure put a damper on your session. Sounds like you did the right thing by moving to another posision and then walk away from the table to take a break to try to get refoucsed. Never play if your head is not in the game. Stay focused on what your objective is. Table distractions can get you on tilt and cause your bankroll to deplete before you know it. Sounds like the option of another table wasnt available but some times try NOT betting and wait things out....yes speaker volume can be overwhelming and the music not your taste but i hope you find something that works for you to get back to the action and play your way to win. Maybe its a sign that you should start that hour dive home......hope not but some sessions are ment to be short.

Move to Vegas.

Play with a serious dice team that has a table to itself, Sundays or Mondays 9AM kind of "Breakfast Club," at a Four-Star Casino.

Private table with serious players and pro dealers, no shitheads, pardon my French.

Thanks for the heads-up, you are confirming my strong suspicion I would hate that place when it is "party time"

I just try to go when nothing is going on. If you need a Craps fix in the evening, well, "good luck with that" as Neon Deion says to Eli Manning in that commercial where the little girl grabs Eli by surprise. [yep, I admit to liking that commercial]

Now waiting for another offer before going though, which as I mentioned to you I am pretty convinced comes once a month.
