2017 Back to Biloxi Craps Clinic

Our next craps clinic is just a few months away – the weekend of March 3 – 5, 2017 in Biloxi, Mississippi.  Biloxi is home to some of the best craps games in the country.  Liberal odds, automatic Buy bets on outside numbers, friendly dealers and easy comps.  What more could a dice guy ask for?  How about fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood, including some of the best shrimp and oysters on the planet?  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.

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.  Howard and Heavy stepped up to the tables in Biloxi for the first time together way back in 2001.  Their last Biloxi seminar and live casino sessions are in the books as some of the best they’ve put together in years.  With over twenty five years of DI instruction experience between them – 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?  Heavy and Howard will host three invitation only live sessions at casinos to be announced for up to six subscribers per session with one session to be played on Thursday afternoon, one on Sunday morning, and one on Sunday afternoon.  Sign up for one session for $119, two sessions for $219, or all three sessions for $289.  That’s right.  It’s your guaranteed spot at the table with Heavy and Howard!  These live-casino sessions are only available to players who sign up for either the Alumni or New Student Dice Control Training Sessions on Saturday.  These live casino sessions will last 60 to 90 minutes and will be played on “open” tables.  Session length may vary depending on casino conditions.  There are no guarantees on shooting positions and no one knows if we’ll see a great hand or not.  But the coaches will both take their shots and give it all they’ve got.

Friday night will feature the traditional “Dutch” Meet and Greet Get-Together.  We’ll get together at a local sports bar we’ve used in recent years.  Join us at the bar, knock back a few, renew old friendships and make new ones.  Afterwards you’ll be on your own to hit the casinos alone or in teams as we attempt to tame the tables.  But don’t blow the entire bankroll Friday night.  You’ll definitely want to have some cash in reserve when we take on the tables throughout the weekend.

Saturday morning we’ll crank up at the local dealer school.  This class will offer the best of both worlds.  All attendees will have the opportunity for hands-on coaching from both Heavy and Howard.  Both coaches offer slightly different approaches to dice influencing – both with the same objective – getting you the best, most profitable toss ever.  We’ll start out with the basics of dice control:

Correct Table Positions – stick left isn’t the only spot in town!

Correct Dice Sets and how to get there quickly!

Correct Grip for you based on the physical shape of your hand.

Correct Toss for you – depending on your physical stature and ability.

Focus, Breath Control, and Landing Zone

Visualization and the Mental Edge

Each attendee will receive a one-on-one toss analysis and a written toss improvement plan.  But don’t just come out for the personal toss instruction.  You’ll learn even more by watching Heavy and Howard coach the other attendees.   Of course, if you DO get bored you can always hit the dealer school’s third table for an “open” practice session.  That’s right – the school we use in the Biloxi market has three full sized craps tables so you’ll have plenty of time to work on your throw before heading to the casinos.

Once everyone’s toss is up to speed, the coaches will spend the afternoon delving into advanced techniques in dice control, including the underhand toss and developing back-up shooting positions.   Need some help fine-tuning your game?  We’ll cover money management, betting strategies and more as we work toward taking your game to the next level.

Saturday’s session is available stand-alone at the following pricing:  Axis Power Craps Alums can sign on for a half-day tune up/hook up session for just $249 – or the full day Saturday for $399.  First-time student tuition is $599 if you previously purchased a copy of Heavy’s Axis Power Craps seminar on DVD.  Don’t have the seminar on DVD?  Your tuition is $699 and we’ll include a copy of the DVD as part of your package.  Remember, in addition to the seminar itself, every attendee receives a Seminar Pack that includes e-copies of all of my Axis Power Craps books and handouts.  Class sizes are limited.

Enrollment links will be available beginning November 1st.  Meanwhile, watch for additional announcements regarding this seminar in the days to come.

As always, your tuition covers the cost of the seminar itself and all hand-out material.  Attendees are on their own for transportation, meals, and accommodations.  Remember, these events are intended to be instructional – educational weekends.  While many players walk away from these events winners – there is no guarantee that you will win at any casino session.  It’s still gambling and you could lose.  Don’t gamble with money you cannot afford to lose.

See you on the beach in Biloxi!
