Friday night, another visit to my local. Started playing my new found desire to play the don't. It went badly to start. While I know the dice have no memory and there's no really such thing as a "hot table", the shooters WERE persistently hitting points. So I flipped to the pass. And I started winning nicely. Mostly playing $25 on the pass with with max odds (5x). And playing mostly $30 on the 6 and 8. I'd recovered my losses and was up...probably a few hundred. Dice come to me. I'm playing $5 each on the All/Small/Tall. I start pretty good, hit a point or 2. Hit the Tall. Nice hit. Keep going. The table is PACKED with money. (At this point, my roll had gone on for probably 15-20 minutes already). I get the small down to the 2 and the 3. People were throwing quarters on aces and any craps. One of the more nuts tables I've ever been on. It hit the 2. Madness. I throw again, hit a hard 8 and the 2 guys to my left and playing it had. Next roll...off the table (with an ace showing on the table). Next roll...3! It took 10 minutes to pay everyone off (there were easily 7 people playing the bonus). Biggest win on a table for me ever. After being paid off, I was up...about $1600. Next roller does well, at this point, up about $1900. Table cools off...I figure, play a little longer, get a "round number win". Nope. Going on fucking tilt. All gone. And my initial buy-in. So from a $1900 win to a $600 loss. Anytime in the past where I've gone from a win to a loss, it's been small and not really bothersome. (From a $100 or $200 win to a $300 loss or something). But this one hit hard, obviously. To hit an All/Small/Tall and throw it away...so stupid. It actually might be the moment that really does teach a lesson. I should have known better though--my bells should have been blaring because of last week--making the nice win playing the don't and then losing it all on BJ. But this was atrocious. But it's part of the game. Deep breath...and learn from it...don't chase.
