Another installment of dice in Reno. My gf and I have cut back on the gambling so only come up when the crab feed happens. I plan to mostly play dice and vp when the tables are dead. I've been thinking about using a trip bankroll instead of a daily loss limit. I think it probably wont make much difference in outcomes but I like the idea of pushing hard even if it means dipping deeper into the bankroll. My luck has been shitty the past year so I'm hoping it will turn around, fully aware of the gamblers fallacy. The drive up through Sac and the Sierras was as smooth as could be expected on a Friday. The gf got off work early so we could leave around 1pm. After a quick lunch stop we made it to Reno in about 4.5 hours. The Tahoe area looked barren. Unfortunately, we've been seeing this more frequently over the years. I've been checking the weather for the past week since we've hit snow the past few years despite an overall dry season. While great for our state's water supply, snow during our drive to Reno wreaks havoc, causing extended delays or re-routing. After arriving I grabbed a marker so the gf would have some tip money for her massage at the spa. I saw her off to the third floor and hit the dice tables. I've gone back and forth as a place and come bettor over the years. For this trip I decided to go mostly place bet. I love to bet all the box numbers and press aggressively. This doesn't usually end well. I'm going to try being less aggressive and racking the first few hits before pressing. I'll rack the first three and go to two units then four then full press every other hit. After reading the recent "help me play dice" threads, I also want to try concentrating my bets on just the 6/8. I think I saw this in Rush's responses in these threads. He goes $30 each and regresses. I dislike regression betting so will start at $18 and just rack then press. The first table I hit was manned by Scotty, Mark, and Dale. The dice crews at the Atlantis are my favorite in Reno or Vegas. When the stick is singing I usually will have them on $5/6 place bets and pressing with each hit as each of my number keeps getting called. I buy in and start PL with $27 across. As has been the pattern recently, I grind down quickly, only hitting a pressed bet a few times. Highest I got was 4 units, but not hitting. The guy that bought in next to me was trying to get the table hyped up but you could tell he wasn't blessed with social grace or he could have been drunk. He added a "thanks man" after getting a drink from the female CW. I know in gambling towns you have to be careful to make the distinction when a person is scantily clad and "servicing" you but this was very clearly a woman. The funniest thing about the situation was the way the crew mocked him without him realizing. This is a skill of an entertaining crew. They can talk shit in such a way that the mark has no clue. Maybe that makes me a dick but I think it's what makes dice so fun. I ended the session by transitioning to betting just the 6/8. My presses go 18 to 30 to 42 then 60. I only get to the 30 level this session.
