When he sevened out, he got a 20-second round of applause,
with the dealers applauding too. It took five minutes
to color everyone up. Orange chips ($1,000) were disappearing
quickly on the color-up.
This shooter was in a groove, a zone. It's like when
you see a shooter get hot in a basketball games, or
a baseball player go on a hitting streak, or a roulette
dealer get into a groove when spinning the wheel.
Over the next year, We worked with our associates
and a number of network members to perfect the controlled
throw. Before I get to the details, let me answer
two common questions that occur for most craps players
when they_ consider the possibility of a controlled
1. Do we have to know how to play the games to learn
and use a controlled throw? 'No. You don't have to
know a thing about
the games to use the method. You'll learn all you
need to in this website-it shouldn't take more than
1 5 minutes to learn what craps is all about.
2. Does it require much skill and coordination to
develop a rhythm roll? Is it difficult? It depends.
Most gamblers require many hours of practice; some
don't. But I've personally taught players and seen
them walk into a casino a couple of hours later, execute
the controlled throw, and win.
The answer to this question is where the controversy
about controlled throws begins. The controversy goes
something like this: How can you get any control when
you release the dice in a medium arced throw, peaking
a couple of feet above the tabletop, with the dice
landing and bumping up against the front wall into
those diamond-shaped bumpers and then finally coming
Our answer to the skeptics is that it takes only 1
controlled throw out of 43, with the other 42 random,
to alter the random outcome of the games to an even
games for the 6 and 8 place bets. We've done the computations.
I urge you to keep an open mind! Employing a controlled
throw and setting the dice will alter the random outcome
of the games and lead to your advantage in casino
You will notice that We have been using the two terms
controlled throw and rhythm roll interchangeably to
this point in this page. They mean the same thing.
Before you read the description of the advantage method,
it is necessary for you to understand how and why
an advantage can be achieved. in the next page, we
define and calculate the player advantage. I think
you’ll find these calculations interesting and
fairly easy to understand.

in a nine-player game, the nine spots are broken down
into early position, middle position, and late position.
As you might guess, the first three spots (the two
blinds plus the under-the-gun player) are early position,
the next three are middle position, and the last three,
culminating with the button, are late position.
Of course, these labels are merely rough approximations.
When you're the seventh of nine to act, you might
technically be in late position, but your position
is still significantly inferior to the player holding
the button. This is why many players break the positions
down still further, calling the fourth spot "early
middle position" and the sixth spot "late
middle position," and the like.
