    I have been reading trip reports and craps betting strategies here for awhile. I play poker back home and craps and some slots when I travel to casinos. Being from Texas, I don't get to a craps table as often as I'd like, Vegas 2-4 times a year and other casinos about twice a year. My next trip to Vegas is 2/23-2/26. I am going under the guise of work, but who am I kidding. It is a craps trip. I'm going to try to do a trip report, if things start out well. You don't want to hear about the new guys steady downward spiral on his first trip report. Here's to hoping you hear about the trip soon. I'm excited to get underway.

    I'll be staying at Ceasars the first two nights and Mirage the third night. Ceasars only comped me 2 nights. A local poker night would be fun.

    Welcome aboard! Another fellow Austinite here, though I'm definitely in the low-roller category. Best of luck in your upcoming trip, looking forward to a successful trip report from you. :beer:

    Do you have a certain craps strategy that you follow or do you change things up according to the feel of the table?

    I'm a pretty straight forward craps player. Pass line/come bets and place 6&8. I stay away from the middle of the table except for the Small/Tall/All. I love the STA so I'm excited that CET properties are adopting it. I rarely hit on the fire bed but regularly seem to hit the STA. As for actual betting strategy, I cap my losses per session. Once I hit my loss level, I walk away. I find myself walking away more often than not since I press pretty hard, but when I win, it is usually several times more than my buy in. I have noticed I am very streaky. I have gone 10 sessions in a row losing and 10 sessions in a row winning. It's pretty crazy, but I love it.

    Leaving today! I love the Vegas countdown clock. Keeps me excited. I have a newbie question for everyone. How do I post pictures from my iPhone to a TR thread?
