Only Fools Rush In
I don't know how you feel about it, but I've found that most everything that's "free" turns out to be pretty much worthless. People get junk ... but it's free junk
If you're lucky enough to find something of value that's free. (like right now) Drink it up. It's rare.
This may be one of the most valuable things I can teach you about playing Live Casino Craps.
This will save you thousands of dollars in losses so tune in because I've seen this happen time after time. It's just one of the things you learn working in a crap pit for 10 years and watching thousands of crap games. You won't find this anywhere else.
Players who apparently understand the game come into a casino pumped up and ready to play. They jump into a crap game and immediately get slaughtered. Ripped apart, torn to pieces, simply because they didn't use common sense.
Here is the reason why
All Crap Tables are not equal. Some are hot. Some are cold. Some are choppy. Why this is, I don't know but it's absolutely true. You might see 6 crap tables but only 3 of them with players. The reason why there are no players on certain tables is simply because the dice are cold and not passing. The tables are empty because the players have busted out. It's a dead game. It's a loser.
You don't win money playing craps on that kind of table. Don't blow off your cash trying. It's all about discipline.
NEVER PLAY CRAPS ON A DEAD GAME OR PICK UP THE DICE TO BE THE SHOOTER
There is a reason why there are no players on the dead tables. Things aren't going to change just because you step up to play. If the dice are cold ... you can't win. DON'T IGNORE THIS ADVICE. Let someone else try to warm up at that cold table.
OPEN YOUR EYES - GET SERIOUS ABOUT WINNING
Here is what to look for. Out of those three tables with players there might be only one that's really rocking. Lots of players ... Lots of noisy people with an abundance of chips on the layout. People are having fun because they are winning money. That's the table you want to watch for. That's the table you want to play on. But before you reach for your cash to buy in.
Pay attention to this. ONLY FOOLS RUSH IN
DO THIS EVERY TIME YOU MAKE A PLAY. Stand behind the stickman and listen to the numbers being called. Listen to the flow of the game. Are the numbers repeating ? Are the shooters rolling hands with lots of rolls or does the shooter come out on a point and the dice 7 out a few rolls later ? Make certain you're entering a game you can win on.
It's all about discipline. Take a deep breath and spend just a few minutes scouting out a winning table. If you can't find one that's good. Go have lunch. Go have a drink. Go to another casino. But never play on a cold table or a dead game. Remember, just because you step up to play doesn't mean that everything is going to change.
When players recklessly jump into games playing balls to the walls they don't win. Don't be that kind of player.
Recognize table conditions and play according to the strength of the hand. It's not difficult to spot a cold table. It's not difficult to spot a hot table. You need the discipline to wait for the game you can beat. Catch the wave and play smart. It's just a matter of having discipline. All Top Level Players understand the importance of patience and timing.
It's knowing the game, picking your spots, and being ready to fire off all guns. That's how you win money in a Crap Game.
Street Smarts .... Don't lose your money playing the game without them. Only Fools Rush In.
