How the Controlled
 

we was also watching the other shooters with a more observant eye, attempting to discern those shooters that could hold the dice for a while. we noticed that, at some tables and during some sessions, we couldn't do anything right, while in others we couldn't do anything wrong.

Everything came together on a trip to Turning Stone casino in July 1996. we watched a shooter hold the dice for 25 minutes with a controlled throw. we didn't just watch, we participated in the excitement the table cleaned up. Then we got "in the zone" and held tile dice for ?0 minutes.

we shared m findings with my associate, Eric Nielsen. The next day we invited -him to watch me play. We waited a fem minutes for me to get the dice -and then we quickly sevened out.

But we wasn't discouraged, because we felt good. The next time we got the dice, we held them for 20 minutes. Eric was amazed. The table was cold when we got there, with player after player walking away muttering to themselves.

My second time with the dice turned it from cold to hot, and the shouting began. When we left the games, you couldn't get near the table, it was so packed with players all wanting to get a piece of the action.

On my wasn’t home to Carson City from that trip, we stopped at the Reno Hilton. we got our spot at a table with a few players, but not much was going on. A player to our right, on the end of the table to the right of the stickman, got the dice. Then we saw the most beautiful exhibition of a controlled throw we've ever seen, including my own. He held the dice for 25 minutes and everybody was cleaning up, including the dealers, whom he was taking generously.

You could see the casino's chips evaporating with each successive throw, including the 20-chip stacks of blacks. Three pit bosses were hovering behind the boxman watching the payoffs. It took 20 to 30 seconds between each throw to pay everyone off for the last number thrown.

Slow-Rolling
 
A new player may slow roll inadvertently. The first player exposes his cards and he looks at the hand for several seconds trying to figure out what the other player has. Then, when he realizes he has the winner, he spreads his own cards. If this happens to you, apologize immediately by saying something like "I'm sorry, I wasn't trying to slow-roll you, I was having a problem reading my hand."

In some tournaments, exposing a card, even accidentally, means an automatic penalty Sometimes the first instance brings only a warning. Different games and cardrooms have different rules about what order to expose hand on the showdown. Usually the last player to bet or raise must show first. If there was no bet on the last round, usually hands are exposed in order starting from the left of the button.

Table or fold your cards promptly and in turn, so players get the information to which they are entitled; the exception, as mentioned, is that it's considered particularly sporting to table the winner right away if you know you have it. If you're not sure if you have the winner, when you table your hand the dealer or other players will say whose hand wins. If you're sure you have a loser, don't hold onto your cards. This makes everyone wonder if you're finally going to turn over a winner.
