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



I wouldnt be surprised if you set up a website and actually got some takers.

I could set up a website promising to beat people up if they send me money, and I assure you there'd be some takers. There's neither an intelligence nor a sanity check when you sign up for broadband :P

That is quite a standard fetish, so I wouldnt be surprised. Its the money for nothing (and the chicks for free) concept that is intruiging me. It might be worth an experiment.

Oh, fetishes are a dime a dozen.

An experiment? It might be worth doing it. It's not fraud if you promise to deliver nothing. Let me know how it turns out ;)

I will. It will give me something to do on my week off.

Angry people at a casino. Blackjack probably attracts the most, but there are many at the craps tables too. It's as if they are at their desks at work and they are bothered by everyone standing around enjoying a coffee break. I go to a Casino because I enjoy it. I gamble to win. It's a fact of life that the people (and slot machines) at a casino are noisy. Grin and bear it. Have fun instead of standing around looking pissed off all the time. I have no problem concentrating. It's like when I played an away game in basketball. I'd be at the free throw line with the game on the line and everyone in the house was YELLING AT ME!!! Count 'em!!

PS-Cracks me up too when golfers freak out when someone sneezes in the crowd when trying to putt!! Like they're preforming brain surgery!

Players who curse someone when they roll a seven after the point has been established. ALL of the "right" players want to win...the shooter sure does not want to roll that nasty number. You do realize that it is a random event that is more likely to occur than other numbers, right?

There was one gentleman that kept on saying stuff about shooters as the seven'd out..."What kind of s%^& is that?"...I figured he was one of them there "dice controllers" and would want the dice as soon as possible. After he said something nasty about ten people ahead of him to shoot (even after some made 2-3 points)...HE PASSED THE DICE!! I unloaded on him!! I asked him how the f^&* he could curse every shooter and then pass the dice? He left the table with his tail between his legs...

It sure feels good when a 45 year old can get under the skin of a guy like that. 85 year old guys with walkers and oxygen shouldn't be smoking and sitting in a chair at the craps table, anyway!!

(the last couple of lines were fiction; the rest of the story is true...)

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.



Hopping 7's is not a hedge bet for me - it is just a fun bet. Since I'm going for a home run and not a cover. Laying the 5 or 9 is not done to protect a don't pass line bet it is done in conjunction with a pass line bet - how in the world does one hedge a pass line bet by laying a 5 or 9 and hoping for a 7?

So the definition hasn't changed at all - I don't hedge.

Period.

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.



Thanks for the offer but actually I'm doing very well. I spent over 40 comp'd nights in casinos last year including two weeks in Vegas and my PL sheet shows that I'm down $985 but I have a current comp balance of over $500. Now if you can give me 40 free nights lodging in upgraded suites, all of the top shelf Remy Martin I can drink and all of the steak I can eat plus hours and hours of action for $485 then go for it. I don't like playing by myself however so you would have to bring in some other people to provide the necessary atmosphere and I'm sure that would cost you any theoretical profit that you might think you will enjoy.

Lifetime I'm ahead due to a number of huge wins. Lifetime I'm also ahead because I have a gorgeous wife (44 years), several wonderful children (and a couple not so wonderful but I love 'em anyway), a great job that pays me a $#!t load of money, two monthly retirement checks, nominally free health care, and several extremely large pension accounts.

And I told you that you guys would hate the way I play.

Time for a new pet peeve freom a dealer prespective. Not sure if "real" dealers get this so any on here feel free to chime in. At the casino parties there are always some people who want to make the hop bets. I don't mind telling them the dealer needs to place them, that is part of learning. But they hand their chips over and say, "30 to one."

"30 to 1 what, mamm?"
"The bet, I want the 30 to one!"
"You mean the 12 or the 2? Both pay 30 to 1."
"Oh, the 12."
"BOXCARS, ONE, ON THE HOOK"
"SIX, EASY."

swep the bets

"I'd like 15 to 1 this time............"

ARGGHHHHHHHH
All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others
