    Also a BIg thanks for introducing me and Chuck to all the people at the Nugget, you are a MF Rockstar there man! LOL Awesome time, loved hearing the Sopranos stories too, send me those pics you mentioned to my email!

    A shame we missed Tim Poster, but meeting Tommy Sundstrum was cool as hell, that guy was exactly like he was on TV, didn't act any different and was a real cool dude.

    I love to play craps, and it's really easy once you understand it. I've read books about people that can roll all these numbers without rolling a seven. If anyone can do that, I'd like them to teach me. But unless those stories are true about these dice controllers, I'm afraid the game is pure luck.

    Illini's post is accurate, saying he's a helluva craps player is akin to a helluva bingo or lottery player, or a helluva roulette player. The house edge is what it is, on each and every roll.

    Don't fool yourself into thinking the mathematics is not what keeps these palaces in business. Educate yourself or continue to lose, bottom line.

    BINGO is actually a longterm profitable venture for a few Vegas wiseguys.

    Very few are aware of this fact.

    referring more to the "charity/church" bingo games than some of the Vegas "added/jackpot" bingo games.

    I wonder if those "advantage bingo players" refer to themselves as "wiseguys", I find that funny.

    ABSOLUTELY!

    Many are also "wise" in many other areas of gambling and most are professionals.

    D2-
    LOL!

    When I lived in Vegas this is what we called each other that were on strong plays.

    I mean, say we would find out JOE BLOW who we didnt know was on a play at the Horseshoe Bingo room..............we would ask ourselves if he were a WISEGUY.

    I guess the term SHARP would be better...............but I for one would always refer to them as wiseguys.

    Either way, yea, pretty funny.................especially in regards to BINGO

    But I assure Fish will justify this 100% as he has tried to do with me in the past.

    There are basically four ways one can gain an advantage in BINGO.

    1. Playing in a room that has few patrons can provide a tremendous overlay after figuring out the total payout amounts. These games are usually found at the smaller casinos and/or early in the morning.

    2. Playing PROGRESSIVE type bingo games.

    3. Using the AUTOMATIC bingo cards....the advantage here is that you will NEVER miss a number..........or at least one shouldnt. Small advantage over the half blind people marking 3-49 different cards manually.

    4. Semi-manipulating the right type cards according to the numbers on the card...........this would take me 2 hours to explain, so forget it. Not really an advantage, but makes the game less violitale.

    House edge is what it is every roll but it will be different for every player depending on where he stacks his chips. No one (or very few if they hit the back wall) can manipulate legit dice but players can stay out of high vig bets and play along with the better %'s of the game. So yes, whether or not a game is beatable or not doesn't discount the fact there are degrees to how well someone plays craps.....

    Krackman, the Rx's resident WSOP finisher, is a true gent, wise owl, and a nugget to have here, looking forward to meeting him and others here at a future bash.

    While in theory "casino sharp" sounds mostly humorous to us all, how many houses want a BW on their roulette wheel, a Stu Ungar at their blackjack table, or a Frankie Masterana at their dice table?
