Use Another Rhythm
 

I was in the Hilton Casino in Atlantic City, observing a fairly crowded craps table, when the dice were passed to a young lady to my right. I figured she'd quickly seven out and I'd have the dice in no time, because she didn't look like much of a craps player.

I watched her roll a few numbers, including three 11s in four rolls. I decided to "tiptoe" into the games with a $10 come bet. She rolled a 6. I took single odds. She rolled a few more numbers. I won the 6, so I proceeded to load up on three more $10 come bets.

Now she had my attention. She had a funny way of cupping her right hand over the dice and jiggling them a little bit on the table surface before setting and then throwing them with a nice, clean, medium-arced throw down into the left-hand corner of the table. A rhythm roller. I became convinced when she rolled a couple of more points with a few numbers in between.

Now my pass-line bet is up to my standard $30 unit and I've loaded up three $30 come bets, all with double odds.

She goes through the same routine every time, sets the dice the same wav every time, and is throwing number after number.

I get worried when the cocktail waitress bothers her with her drink order; she turns around to tip the waitress and I wonder if I should take my odds bets down-is her rhythm broken" No. She nonchalantly returns to the task at hand and continues throwing numbers.
