Yes, it’s that time again. The time when a young man’s thoughts turn to magnolia blossoms, lighthouses, the Gulf coast, fresh oysters, seafood right off the boats, and (of course) some of the best craps action in the country. Yes, I’m talking about the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the Biloxi – Gulfport playground where Howard and I first hit the tables together way back in 2001.

Biloxi, Mississippi is home to some of the best craps games in the country. Liberal odds, automatic Buy bets on outside numbers, friendly dealers and generous comps. What more could a dice guy ask for? I already mentioned fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood, including some of the best shrimp and oysters on the planet. So let’s just toss in an opportunity to learn dice control from two of the best in the business – Heavy and Howard “Rock and Roller” – and you have a recipe for a weekend you’ll never forget. And it’s all coming to the coast the weekend of February 26, 2016.

Heavy has been a focal point in the dice control world since first appearing on the scene in the nineties. He has trained hundreds of players through the years, including many who have gone on to become great coaches in their own right. His websites and Internet gaming forums have always been among the most popular dice control related sites on-line.

Howard “Rock ‘n Roller” is one of the world’s greatest dice controllers, and an expert when it comes to tossing hardway and Fire Bet winners. A former GCT owner and PARR coach, Howard has more tosses in his arsenal than anyone else at the tables and is currently on a HUGE winning streak in Vegas.

Last year’s Biloxi seminar was one for the record books, and our recent Tunica seminar and our live sessions together in Vegas were some of the best we’ve put together in years. At one Biloxi seminar recently we even managed to toss back to back 50 plus roll hands! With over twenty five years of DI instruction experience between us – you can’t go wrong on this deal.

Why not plan to arrive on the coast a day early, hook up with friends from prior seminars and get a little play in before the “official” fun begins? On Friday evening we’ll host a casual “Dutch” meet and greet get togehter to hook up with old friends and put new names and faces together while planning hook-up play for the weekend. Who knows, we might even work in a pre-seminar session somewhere while we’re at it.
