Heavy & Howard’s “Back to Biloxi”

Craps Seminar Weekend

March 20 – 22, 2020

Tired of freezing your toes in the snow?  Ready for some beach time, pool time, sunshine, and plenty of time to get those toes in the sand?  Then make your plans now to join craps legends Steve “Heavy” Haltom and Howard “Rock ‘n Roller” Newman on the beautiful Gulf Coast in Biloxi, Mississippi the weekend of March 20th for one of their most exciting craps events ever.

Heavy and Howard’s annual “Back to Biloxi” Seminar is, by far, their most popular event every year. 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 thirteen miles of sun-kissed beaches and tons of 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.  But don’t wait too long to register because space is limited!

Howard “Rock ‘n Roller” is one of the world’s top dice controllers, and an expert when it comes to alternate controlled shots. He and Heavy first stepped up to the tables together in Biloxi way back in 2001. Our recent seminars and live sessions in Biloxi and Vegas are in the books as some of the best we’ve put together in years. With almost forty years of DI instruction experience between us – you can’t go wrong on this deal.

Friday night will feature our traditional Meet and Greet Get-Together. We’ll hook up at a local Sports Bar to knock back a few, renew old friendships and make new ones. Hungry? This place does great bar-food, but if you want oysters that were reefed up in the Gulf this morning there are plenty of options available. Kick back, relax and enjoy the company of your fellow crapsters. 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 be out partying all night. Saturday morning Howard and I will have serious craps training on our minds.

Saturday’s class will take place 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 the coaches, 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, we’ll 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, basic betting strategies for advantage shooters and more as we work toward taking your game to the next level.  We’ll even take a look at advantage play from the Dark Side!

We’ll also throw in an additional look at your toss and give you a final toss tweak before we head to the casinos to play for the day.
