Biloxi 12

Back to Biloxi XII

September is the first “R” month of the year, and that means Oyster Season on the beach!  Join Heavy and Howard as they roll back into Biloxi September 16th for a weekend of group craps training, one-on-one toss tweaks, betting strategies, and live casino sessions all designed to take YOU to the top of your game. We’re bringing you more of what you’re looking for. More one-on-one time with the coaches. More “new” toss techniques. More betting strategies. More live session opportunities. Make your plans now to attend.

We’ll kick things off with a casual meet and greet at a location to be announced on Friday night. Meet the coaches and get acquainted (or reacquainted) with your classmates on this adventure. Hoist your favorite brew or discover one of the new local craft beers. Have a dozen raw oysters, a dozen fried, and throw in a dozen shrimp and a few catfish fillets. Fried green tomatoes, hush puppies, or whatever else suits your pallet. Then wash the grease off your fingers and go toss a few at the most exciting casinos on the coast! But don’t stay out all night because we’ll crank up early at the dealer school and you won’t want to miss a minute of it!

Saturday we’ll have two tracks to run on – alumni and new student. Saturday morning’s session will focus on toss tweaks for alumni students and toss basics for new students. Each student will get one-on-one time with both Heavy and Howard, plus ample time to practice on their own on the casino’s third craps table. If time permits we’ll wrap up the session with a head-to-head shoot-out for session bragging rights.

Saturday afternoon we’ll continue polishing up tosses, introduce you to Howard’s  alternate shots for use in special circumstances, and cover betting systems and strategies for casino craps – including Heavy’s power-press moves!  We’ll wrap the afternoon up with a mock casino session using the strategies we’ve learned in the class, with best bettor bragging rights going to the player with the biggest ending bankroll.

Tuition is as follows:

Alumni Students – Saturday Morning Tune-Up – $199


Alumni Students – Full Day Saturday – $399

First Time Students Must Sign Up for Full Day Saturday – $599

Saturday night you’ll be on your own. Get out and enjoy all of the attractions the coast has to offer. Great dining, great gaming, and great company. It’s all there in Biloxi.

On Sunday Heavy and Howard will be offering THREE live casino session opportunities with students who sign on. We’ll play two sessions Sunday morning, then a third session on Sunday afternoon. The number of available slots for these sessions will be extremely limited, as we’ll be playing on “open” tables at the casinos. Early registration for these sessions is strongly recommended. Pricing is $119 for one session. $229 for two sessions. $329 for three sessions.

See you in Biloxi!

  • The Roulette Wheel Goes Round and Round – Taking a Break from Craps

    “What?!?” you say. Roulette? Why the heck would you play roulette?  It carries a ridiculous house edge – in excess of 5% on the American wheel. Mathematically it cannot be beaten over the long run. “True,” I reply. And though I’ll get grief from some folks for proposing this...

  • The “Secret” of Precision Dice Shooting

    I frequently get questions – both by e-mail and on the Axis Power Craps Forum, regarding what it takes to succeed as a dice influencer.  Recently I sort of “went off” on an older gentleman who has been searching for the “secret” of precision shooting for several years, but...

  • The “KISS” Theory of Craps

    We’ve all heard of the KISS Theory as applied to many things in life. If you’ve been off-planet for the last thirty years and are not familiar with the KISS Theory – it stands for Keep It Simple Stupid. And I suspect that there’s no were that this theory...

  • Saving Bullets

    Okay, I’ll admit it. I have a few guns around the house. What the hell? I grew up in the woods in Arkansas, had my first BB gun at five and my first .22 at nine. By the time I was twelve I had a 30.06 rifle and a...

  • So You Want to be a Craps Pro

    My first piece of advice on this topic is simple. Don’t give up your day job. As the Mad Professor once said, “Gambling is a tough way to make an easy living.” Most of the pros I know would agree. But if you insist on taking your shot at...

  • How Much of an Edge is an Edge?

    A while back a good friend of mine complained that – after years of practice the best he could achieve was an SRR of 7.12. To his way of thinking he was not playing with enough of an edge, and his results at the table seemed to support this....

  • Using Psi Power to Increase Your Wins

    The term psi comes from the 23rd letter of the Greek alphabet and is used as an informal abbreviation for “psychic phenomena”. As such it covers all uses of the mind beyond the reach of accepted science. Psi-power should not be confused with ESP, which stands for “Extra Sensory...

  • Heavy’s $120 Bankroll Strategy

    Articles that offer suggestions on how to play within a certain budget are among our most popular.  Frankly, I’m surprised at how many people ask for suggestions on how to play with around $120  per session.  Admittedly there was  a time when I would have told anyone asking me...

  • When Puts Come to Shove

    If you’ve ever stood at the table with me for any length of time you’ve probably heard me say “Get those late bets in early, guys.” That’s because late bets – bets made after the dice have already been sent to the shooter – disrupt the flow of the...

  • Transition Moves

    The transition move is one of the most powerful weapons in the crapshooter’s arsenal. It is also one of the most difficult to master. Simply put, a transition move is your pre-planned strategy to ease your bets from one side of the line to the other, allowing you to...

  • The Confident Crapster

    You’ve seen it before. You’re standing at a choppy table, being ground down by the house when something magical happens. A new player steps up to the table and buys in. He stands tall, looks around, claps his hands and says, “Come on, guys. Let’s turn this table around.”...

  • You Must Have Gotten a Phone Call

    How many times have you heard the phrase, “You must’ve got a phone call” while standing at the craps table? Seems like I’ve heard it a million times. These days, more often than not it’s part of a dialog that goes something like this: Shooter: “Hopping the nines for...

  • An Offer I Couldn’t Refuse

    During the oil boom days in East Texas just about every town around here had a saloon, a gambling hall, and a whorehouse. The drillers, riggers, and roustabouts worked hard for their money and they played as hard as they worked. One city in particular, I won’t mention its...

  • Smart Field Play?

    Take a look at any crap table and see where the sage old right-way players put their money. One of the most popular bets you’ll see these guys toss out is $44 inside – that’s twelve dollars on the six and eight, and ten dollars each on the five...
