    I was playing craps today at a local casino where we had 3 right bettors and 1 dark side player. The most interesting thing happened where whenever the dark side player had a don't pass bet up, we'd all roll 15+ numbers and made money on the right side. As soon as the dark side player ran out of money, we all started to seven out after the point. So one of the guys at our table threw him a $5 chip and asked him to bet on the don't pass. Sure enough, our rolls got hot again and we made money and hitting the points. The rest of us caught on to this and threw the guy a $5 chip every time the point hit so he could keep betting the dark side to keep our luck going! LOL. First time I've ever done this. How many times can we say we were feeding the dark side players money to keep playing? Usually it's the opposite where people want them to leave because of bad karma! Heh. I walked away with 2.5 times my buy in at that session. Good times.

    As a darkside player, I don't see anything funny about this post at all. Don't turn us into your good luck charm! I need all the red chips I can get :cry::cry::cry:

    I love it. One of the best things that can happen is when a don't bettor rolls a monster hand and doesn't pass the dice. A lot of don't bettors will bet a couple times but stop after hitting a couple points. I've seen don't shooters make amny many points and stay on the don't.

    I don't want to hijack your thread, but I have played craps for about 30 years, and this past weekend I saw a first.

    Guy buys in for $20 at a $5 table in Green Bay. No one is paying any attention to him, mostly because I am having a good roll. I hold the dice for about 25-30 rolls, and now the dice come to this old guy. He puts $5 on the line, and throws a 3....Crap dice. The dealers scoop up everyones Pass Line wagers, and we all re-bet. The dealer starts to push the dice back to the old guy when he sees he doesn't have a bet down. "Sir, you need to make a bet." The guy shrugs his shoulders, and turns his palms up, and says, "I'm broke!"

    The guy tossed the dice one time, and was bust!

    :wave:

    He walked away, and the game went on.

    At MSS I am at SL1, and sparsely populated table. Large gent is on the hook as the dice come around. Large gent pretty much is toothless, but not stinky toothless, not obnoxious toothless, just few in the tooth department.

    He has just 2 Quarter chips in hand with 2 Nickles in his rack. Dice comes to him and he picks 2 and says this - "Ok babies; I need you to be real nice, ev'rybody here want you to be real nice, so be nice, OK?" - I kinda laugh it off but he places the nickle on the Pass and away we go.

    7 on the come out. Winner. Good start. He picks the dice; and same spiel " Ok baby, we need you to keep being happy 'K?" He then tosses. 6 is the point. He backs his Nickle w/ a quarter. Sweet talks the dice again. Not 2 tosses later bang he makes the point.

    He now goes - "Alright sweeties; we on a happy trail now; we wanna keep all these people happy and make some money for the dealers too"

    Longish story short; he turns his stack into pretty much 2 solid rows of quarters, makes me a ton of cash and dealers toked up a bunch. One of the most fun rollers at a table I have ever seen.

    If that was good; try this one ->

    I am holding up TheCal craps table at about midnight. I mean really; I am holding it up. Not a drunk hold; just me, and a few old crows (older than moi) and we are just really, really beating the brush. Up; even; down; down; even. Its a persistent level of MEH.

    There are maybe 5 of us at the table. I am as always, SL1, and noone to my left. The dice are pretty much opposite me and travelling quickly. (arrgh)

    A young lady pulls up to my left hook just as the dice are given to the gent prior to her. She is obviously 'just looking'; he promptly 7's out.

    Dealers pass her the dice; she goes "oh I never played, I dont know...." That was all I needed to hear. " Ok honey; you gotta bring some lady luck here - put a (passline) bet down and throw the dice!"

    She seems reluctant; but her mighty roll of (maybe 2 nickles) got the best of her and she goes.

    She really has NO IDEA of what the hell to do.

    Im like "ah hell if this aint the time it aint never gonna be"

    So I throw a quarter yo for me; a nickel for the boys; and a nickel for her. ( A proverbial 3 way yo)...

    She launches - bang. Yo!

    Dealers all happy; they pay her off; she is like "what? I didnt bet that?!"

    Dealers say - "the gent there bet for you; heck if you want more; throw another yo"

    Im all WTF?! OK up the guys to a 10; same bet for me; and up the shooter to 10.

    She launches - YO! 2 in a row.

    After they pay outs my evil twin is like presssss/parlaaaaaaayyyyy! But I go same bet - dealers back for 10 and up the shooter to 15.

    She throws a damn 3rd YO in a row.

    Once the damn high 5's stopped; she got a point ; 7'd out quite quickly a left us all with smiles.

    Only 1 other guy on the table had followed with me....:ssst:

    *subscribe* If you want to create a "funny craps story" grab all 5 of the dice handed to you and toss them across the table (Yahtzee!!). Usually the players get a kick out of it, while the boxman wants to kill you.:beer:

    A newbie once grabbed the 2 die and rattled 'em; then tossed them to the short side.

    That didnt go unnoticed to say the least.

    I once saw the dice passed to the player and with lightning speed he whips them down the table only to strike the boxman as he was trying to get back into his seat from leaning into the table. It was one of the funniest things I've ever seen at craps because there was no question that the player did this this on purpose. They didn't give him shit since it was the stickman who passed him the dice "too early". LOL. It was epic. The boxman was pissed.

    Reminds me of my Biloxi trip a few years ago. No one could get anything going at the tables at Hard Rock. PSO all over the place.

    I grabbed the dice and said 'ill turn this around in a hurry'. I bet the Dont and tried to hit a 7. That's when I had a decent roll. The table started shooting better after that.

    There was one time I was at the craps table and there were two guys to my right. I was making conversation with them and having a great time. One of them was rolling and on one of his rolls, one of the dice didn't make it to the back wall and seven's out. There was a fat guy to my left who was drunk and yells at the shooter for not getting both dice to the back wall. We didn't like that remark too much but ignored it for the time being. The dice eventually moved to the fat guy and while he was rolling, this incredible stench wafted into our direction and it was clearly the fat guy dropping a bomb mid roll. We knew right away it was him and we started to get back at him by saying things out loud like "Who shit at that table?", "Who just died?" That stink was so terrible that a few of us has to walk away to wait for it to clear out. The fat guy felt like such an ass he quickly admitted to the air pollution violation and apologized for it so we'd stop announcing it to the world and disturbing his roll. LOL. :thumbsup:

    Yoshi

    At TheCal; having just a great time as always with the older gents and younger pups actually jiving and ribbing and getting along.

    Regulars & old timers are doing there thing; getting a marker and immediately going to 'town' with bets.

    Box knows quite a few of the weathered faces at the table, and a new gent steps up to the table, greets the fellow next to him (whom obviously he knew) and motions to the box for a 1K marker.

    Dealers present him his coin, box comes over with requiste paper work, and chit chat quickly.

    Box walks away, stops mid stride, and announces between the 2 friends ->

    "Hey; you cant sign Yoshi's name to your marker, Steven!!"

    Yoshi is the guy he knew and the table pretty much lost it in laughter for a minute or 2....:peace:

    That is so funny, Hawaiianmark! But so typical of the clientele of the Cal's crap tables, full of characters from the 50th State. That's one of the reasons I enjoy playing craps there. They know how to play and take the good and bad in stride. Thanks for sharing that story!

    All five dice on the table would be nice. Here's what happens when they don't land on the table:

    A number of years ago, I found myself shooting craps at the Park Hotel, downtown. (It was originally a Holiday Inn, I believe, and had been closed and re-opened under a series of different names. It's now the Main Street Station.) It was about 7:00 AM and the table was about half full.

    A player steps up to the table, buys in, and immediately starts grumbling, insulting the dealers, and just being downright rude. The dealers gave as well as they got, and before long, it was clear that there was no love lost between this player and the dealers. After a while, one of the dealers explained that earlier in the AM, the player had not only been drunk and disorderly, but had also "shot a monster," and was now "back for more."

    After a few minutes, the dice pass to the rude player. On his first roll, he throws a die off the table. The dealers jump right in and holler, "Keep the dice on the table!!" etc. On his second roll, he throws another die off of the table. This time, the stickman slams the stick right in front of him, and repeats the exhortations even louder than before, with the addition of some personal insults.

    The player doesn't waste a second. He reaches right in front of the stickman and grabs the three remaining dice out of the bowl, winds up for a baseball style pitch, and then hurls them as far as he can to the very back of the casino with all his might!

    Well, two security guards, who were now standing right behind him, immediately jump on this guy and whisk him away to parts unknown.
    Meanwhile, the dealers, stickman, and all of the players are pressed into service to scour the floor of the casino for the missing dice, as the player had just thrown ALL FIVE dice off the table in three throws and the game couldn't continue! After about five minutes without recovering the dice, the management calls us all back to the table and opens up a new package of dice so that the game could be re-started.

    What a morning! I've seen of various arguments, fisticuffs, people throwing drinks, food, and a bunch of other roughhouse in Vegas over the years, but this one took the cake!
