    I love a fast and hot craps table like the next guy but I always get concerned when the table get too crowed. Where should I keep my winnings? If I keep them on the rack I end up playing them and thus walking away broke. Last time I was at a table I just kept putting them in my pocket but I am always worried about getting pick pocketed. In my next trip coming up I have thought of using a small wast pack but then again who would really want to hit on a guy with a fanny pack on? So the question is what should I do?:wave:

    If I have a pair of cargo shorts on the extra chips go into the side button pockets. If you get a an extra stack put the Greens/blacks in one side pocket reds in the other. Most cargos have buttons on the pockets and the pockets are deep so they are more secure than side pocket shorts.

    I do it mostly because I usualy can't keep track of what I have in front of me when the game is going on. If I can keep track that means the stack of chips is pretty low :)

    I pretty much just usually keep all my chips on the rack. Never had any real problems.

    Definite no-no on the fanny pack. Steve McQueen couldn't pull off one of those. Its a shame they look so dorky because they're pretty damn useful these days with all the stuff we carry.

    I keep them in the rack as well but if you want to pocket them and are worried about pickpockets maybe color them up to a big chip and stick it in your shirt pocket if you're wearing a button down. Casinos are probably the only place I use my shirt pocket, usually for players cards and occasionally a big chip like a flag/chocolate.

    And I always found it weird that if you were going to the bathroom you had to leave your chips in the rack, I assume to save your spot.
