My pet peeve is rude players, and an old man at Casino Niagra takes the cake. I was at a table with 11 people and this Old Man walks up and literally drops a stack of quarte chips onto the don't pass line. When I say stack I don't mean a nice neat stack like everyone else, he literally walks up to the table with a ton of chips and just throws a pile on the don't right before the shooter is about to come out. The boxman says that that only counts up to the table max but the old man does not hear. Man rolls a point and then craps out next roll. The man then taunts the whole table talking about how we suck and how he has all the money. The dealers stack the chips and this man has over $1000, the table max so they only pay him to $1000 and he is upset.

He then bets the max 1000 again on the don't come, wins again, taunts the table some more and leaves. In general I know that sometimes my fellow bettors are wishing for something different than me, but no need to rub your nose in the face that you just lost. If you want to celebrate, that is great, but no need to kick a man while he is down. In particular when you did nothing to knock him down.

I get this often on a similar note when I bet Baccarat. Usually I am the only non-asian at the table and I am the only guy betting the table min constant. Some guy will drop $200 on banker and I drop $5 on player and he gets ticked. I don't have to mimic you and me wagering the $5 means as much to me as you wagering the big bucks.

Hmmm....

Does that mean that if you see another Don't better, shooting from the Pass, that you'll bet the Pass when he's shooting?



No.

You guys would hate the way I play. I sometimes play don't and I sometimes play do. I lay bet, place bet, buy bet, don't come bet and come bet. When I place bet I sometimes pick up the bet after a win and sometimes I press the bet after a win. I play the hardways, the hops, the yo and the midnight. Every once in awhile I'll go around the horn and sometimes I'll take a whirl (or a "world" - it's all good). If I'm feeling particularly lucky when I'm the "thrower" I'll hop the 7's for a 2 bucks each and play back the total win twice then go up 20 a roll on each of the combos until I roll something other than a 7 (most ever - 7 sevens in a row). If they don't allow hop 7's I might play big red for a nickle and parlay twice then go up 50 a roll until I roll something else (most ever - 6 sevens in a row). Sometimes on my own come out I might be on the pass line and yet lay $30 on the 5 or 9 just because if I roll a 7 it's money in the bank. If in that instance I roll a 5 or a 9 it is, oh well, and get on with business. I do not hedge bet nor would I ever bet pass and don't pass at the same time.

I play craps for fun and what I really like is being left alone and not have anyone including dealers, boxmen, railbirds, or anyone else tell me that my way is not the "correct" way to play.

I have no superstitions - what it is is what it is.

Good. I think those who hedge are trying to eliminate gain by minimizing risk. A gambler should take it like a man. You put your money out there and you stand up and accept the consequences. You don't try to nickle and dime Lady Luck.

I often do appreciate receiving assistance from the Dealers but I'm not interested in conversations with other players. If I choose to shoot from the Don't, thats my option.

But the OP lists in the same posting a whole series of hedges like hopping 7's and laying the 5 or 9 on his comeout rolls. If those aren't hedges, the definition of the word has changed radically.

I would like to invite you to my new casino where I have your own craps table especially reserved for you, with some Grey Goose (or whatever your favorite drink is) on ice.

I understand, you play for entertainment and aren't worried about those pesky odds. I'm curious to see what you would vote for in my "Lifetime Gambling Earnings" poll though.

I have not played enough craps to have developed a peeve yet. My limited experiences have all pretty much been a positive experience. At least reading this thread has ahown me a few etiquette things to try and avoid as a newbie player.

My advice is to step up to the table, be the shooter, and make eight points in a row--then everyone will love you.

If I could, I would. Unfortunately, Im just not that good. I might just have to pay for a dice control course :P (Note, that was a joke)
Ill just have to rely on the wife wearing a low cut top and getting short sticked to entertain the table (also a joke)

It drives me nuts when players take the time to set the dice just right, and then they pick them up and shake them in their hand anyway! Crazy players.

Well, since my EZ Lotto idea flopped, perhaps I could try EZ Dice Control. Just send $100, cash, check or money order. You get nothing in return, but at least I'm being honest about it :P
