I guess there will always be those who consider it rude to buy in during a craps roll but what does it really harm? I will take the hints of those who bring some chips to the table or just use one $100 bill to make bets until the dreaded seven appears as ways of keeping the flow going, but I am not going to pass up what looks like a good roll when I can buy-in quickly. I judge that by how fast each side is paying winners--sometimes one side is so slow the entire other end could buy-in and no one would notice. I've "been considerate" and watched winners and then got on the table just in time to lose...

It is all random...sometimes the randomness is in your favor. Seize it.

Okay, okay, now you've mentioned something, whereas regardless of any lung cancer I may develop, I'd just as soon smell smoke all day if I have to choose between the two.

Yes.
A Craps buy-in during a roll.
Does not matter how you sugar coat it, I think it still is rude.


The act of buying in bothers me because when one buys in during a hand, another says if he can do so will I.
It is a practice that should be stopped, because it only benefits one player out of many.

and...Because it slows the table down, even for a roll or two, If the dice do not roll, players can NOT win.



I usually wait for a 7-out for my buy-in, but while I've been waiting I have been prompted by the dealers who say, "Throw your money in and call for change only. We'll handle it." Even then I wait for the point to be resolved before I lay any chips down.

Ever notice that if you approach a five dollar dice table with no chips in your hand but say Three Hundred Dollars coming, the Stickman will instantly snag the dice away from the shooter's outstretched arms and bring them back to the middle as the dealer graciously waits for you to do your buy-in right smack dab in the middle of someone's roll. Is it rude? Heck, the crew probably figures one tip from that sort of action will make up for their being rude to that five dollar shooter.

The casino doesn't care about common courtesy, the casino cares about cash.

Also, as far as the smoking issue. Smoking in the presence of others is no different than constantly passing gas.



Define "constantly passing gas." When I'm next to you at a table, I have to breathe in your breath, whether it's got pussy or cock or ass or garlic on it, or $1,000 worth of "Kobe sliders".

One time a guy smoking a cigar at my table was agitated because I was chewing ice. I ignored him and kept chewing ice of course.



Did he tell you your chewing ice was bothering him, or are you imagining it because you're a moralist against smoking?

Which reminds me of the most horrible experience I've ever encountered at a Craps table. An elderly gentleman(>70y), who usually plays more than a few afternoons a week, sits on a stool borrowed from a nearby TCP table. Sometimes he even brings his invalid wife, to get her out of the house. He'll play 2-3 hours at a time.

Unfortunately, this was the only table open on a Friday afternoon and it was fairly full, so I took the rail space next to him and bought in for my usual $100. Within a few minutes, I start to get the smell of old man urine. Is it me, is it the guy on the other side...I look at the dealer on my end, even he is disgusted but can't very well move. I immediately pick up my chips and move to the other end of the table where a spot had just cleared out.

FWIW, I work in the Operating Room all week long and have a pretty high tolerance for ALOT of things but stinky piss isn't one of them.

Please, Please, Please...wash your cock and balls before you leave the house!

Maybe some clean Drawers too!

Fuck you, you don't work in an Operating Room if you make a lame ass joke like that.

Here's how the joke goes:

"We'll need a blood sample, a urine sample, and a stool sample"

"Can I just give you my underwear?"

Here is what I do:
If my buy-in is $1000 I just go to the cage way before hand to get my chips. Mostly $100s and a few $25, That way I can walk up to the table and bet right away. Casinos in Vegas do it all the time for me and I have never had a problem. Most cashiers ask why dont I just buy in at the table, I give them my reasons for the craps table and they all have thought it was a very good idea..



guido,
I like this. The only negative I can see is I feel putting chips on the rack does not count in your comp quite the same as putting cash on the felt. It may all count the same, but I feel the cash still gets more attention, and results in a bit better rating. I have no proof of this, it is just a feeling.

Even with that, I still could get a hundred in chips to do as you suggest, which I think is a really good solution. So bring 100 in chips, and 900 in cash. I like it
