    My Trip Report

    Went to my local Indian casino today. Arrived at 9:15 noticed the craps table closed (on a Sunday morning!). Nearby BJ dealer tells me it doesn't open til 10.

    Buffet line is out the door and down the hallway and out the door again due to Mothers Day brunch. I am one level off the top tier in the rewards program so can't skip the line.

    Fed $300 into various slots, watched it all go away by the time it was 10. Why oh why.

    Bought in for $800. Played alone for the first 20 minutes. Very choppy. A couple Point, points. Then point, Seven outs. Was going back and forth between $500 and $1,000.

    Gruff guy named Max comes up and joins the action. Buys in for 200 or 300 I recall.

    Still choppy. Up and down, we are hitting some but nothing crazy.

    Max is the shooter again and is hitting Double-12 field bets like crazy. I of course as a PL + 2 or 3 come bets bettor am losing my Come bets with his 12. Eventually he 7s out, and I have something like $350~ in my chip rack and its my turn to shoot.

    $10 PL. Point is 8. $100 odds behind, $10 come bet, $25 hard 8.

    Next roll is a 4. $100 odds, $25 hard 4. $5 come bet.

    Roll a 2. $5 come bet. Roll a 5. $50 odds. Left with 15 in my chip rack. Bet 5 and 5 on the hard 4 and 8 for the crew.

    I start thinking oh god, I have $5 left!? Are you kidding me.

    Dice are out! Com'on shooter. HARD 4!!!

    Press the hard 4 to $50.

    Next roll. HARD 4!!!

    Next roll. HARD 8!!! Front line winner, hard way winner!!!

    In the matter of three rolls, from $5 to over $1,300. Started a great comeback to where I got up to $2,300~, cashed out just shy of $1,900.

    Max hit a bunch of hops and huge field bets...to cash out a cool $4 grand!!!

    What a day! I love opening the Craps table!

    OH, and even better. I think they had a newer pit critter or at least he was very favorable to me because we were betting the hard ways for the crew(& hitting).

    My rating was average bet $170 for 2.5 hours. I think they rated my odds bets :eek::eek::eek::D:D:D

    The crew must have wanted to kiss you with both those hard ways for them! Nice turn around.
