Volume I : Issue VI
Happy Holidays everyone! I know, you've got things to do so I'll keep this edition of the newsletter short and sweet.
Another busy month on the site....thanks to everyone who spreads the word about dicesetter.com. As many of you know, I had a great deal of difficulty with the message board in November. When it went down for the third time in a week, I migrated to another service. If you have not visited the new message board, stop in and have a look around! More thanks to those who participate on the board. The advice sought and given is well thought out and the way you all express yourselves is a testament to your knowledge and civility. If you visit other boards and newsgroups, it seems as if more time is spent tearing one another down than actually sharing ideas. Kudos to you all! Anyway, the current message board is really only a stop gap solution. After the New Year I'll explore hosting the message board myself. There are several software packages that are quite reasonably priced. I'll keep you posted via the newsletter of any impending changes. I'll also archive some of the messages from the old board so that you'll still have access to them.
As a final note to the message board fiasco. If you find a similar situation, check the What's New area for updates...or as always, you can drop me an email.
The feedback I received from the movies which appeared as part of last month's newsletter was very positive. Thanks everyone for your suggestions. Now the only hitch is to get a bunch of us together somewhere to shoot a full length CD Rom version of several shooting styles. More on that after the New Year...hopefully.
The Heat is Off!
Several site visitors have emailed me that they were able to set the dice without any heat at several casinos which are on the The Black List recently. Given that business is still down in Vegas, I expect this trend to continue...for AWHILE. Most casinos are still aching for players. When things pick up, I predict The Black List houses to return to their old anti-dice influencing ways.
I am a craps dealer on the Las Vegas Strip. As a dealer it is my job to provide the best possible service to the players. When I'm on STICK and I see a player who has a preference for setting the dice a certain way, I usually try to turn the dice to THE SHOOTER'S PREFERENCE. I figure that this is a way to service the player and I assume that the shooter knows what he or she is doing. As dealers, we want the players to WIN... as that is the way that we secure the majority of our income... by getting TOKED by WINNERS. Besides... I have MORE damn fun watching the other dealers and the Boxman or Boxwoman ... just to see if they have the slightest clue as to what it is that I am doing.
The Biggest Mistake A Precision Shooter Can Make
This started out as an article called The 10 Biggest Mistakes... But, when I asked several site visitors for their opinion on the topic, we all seemed to generally agree on the number one mistake;
Overbetting Your (and others) Dice Influencing Skills
The most dangerous time for a novice or intermediate dice influencer is the session after a very successful session. Suddenly, they're infallible. I see it on the message board and I see it in emails I receive. Even with a decent bankroll ($1000), the novice shooter with the wind of previous success in their sails will begin their wagering at extraordinarily high levels despite a limited skill set. Only to be whacked. Badly. Even now, I start wagering on myself at very low levels. If I get a hot hand, there's always time to press.
