Heavy and DarthNater’s

“Back to Biloxi” Beach Bash

February 26 – 28, 2021! 

 

2021 is just around the corner – and that means Heavy and DarthNater are heading “Back to Biloxi” for the February 26 – 28 Biloxi Beach Bash.

Craps players – you’ll absolutely LOVE Biloxi casino’s generous odds, automatic Buy bets on outside numbers, friendly dealers and easy comps.  No matter how much weight you put on over the 2020 holidays – your flip flops will still fit.  And if your toss isn’t quite where you want it to be or if you haven’t quite figured out how to maximize your winnings at the table – don’t fret.  Heavy and DarthNater will show you the way.

This exciting weekend starts with FOUR BoneTracker Training Sessions.  Two Basic BoneTracking Sessions for those of you just learning the software, and Two Advanced BoneTracking Sessions for those of you who have the software down pat but want some expert analysis of your toss results.  The Basic BoneTracking class will take you through all of the information you need to know to be able to track and analyze your own rolls in BoneTracker, including the data entry page and the transition tabs.  The Advanced BoneTracking Sessions will build on that and provide you with a personal analysis of 720 of your own rolls while taking a deep dive into your best dice sets for every number on the layout.  Each of these sessions is limited to just TWO players each – four students for the morning sessions and four students for the afternoon sessions.  The cost of these sessions breaks down as follows:

Basic BoneTracking Class:  $299

Advanced BoneTracking Class:  $399

BOTH Basic and Advanced Classes Combined:  $649

Students signing up for the Advanced BoneTracking Class must submit a book of 720 rolls in BoneTracker format a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the class (by February 12) to allow time for the coaches to complete their analysis of the rolls.

Again, only FOUR slots total are available for the Basic and Advanced sessions.  Due to the limited number of slots available expect these slots to sell out quickly.  Sign up early if you wish to lock one of these slots in.  First paid – first served.  Note that the BoneTracker slots are not available on the Axis Power Craps Golden Ticket option.

It’s hard to beat a weekend with old friends and new, fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood, including some of the best craps games in the country.  On Friday night, conditions permitting, we’ll hold our traditional Meet and Greet Get-Together.  We’ll hook up at a local Beachfront Bar to knock back a few, renew old friendships and make new ones.

If Covid restrictions prevent us from getting together as a large group we’ll break up into a couple of smaller ones and hit some of our favorite haunts.  Hungry?  We know some local joints that serve great bar-food, and if you want oysters that were reefed up in the Gulf that morning there are plenty of options available.

Afterwards you’ll be on your own to hit the casinos alone or in teams to take on the tables.  But don’t be out partying all night and don’t blow the bankroll before you’ve even stepped into the classroom because Saturday morning Nate and I will have serious craps training on our minds.

Saturday’s class will take place at the local dealer school down the beach in Gulfport.  This class will offer the best of both worlds.  All attendees will have the opportunity for hands-on coaching from both Heavy and Nate.  We both teach the traditional on-axis toss and both have the same objective – getting you the best, most profitable toss ever.  Heavy’s primary betting focus is on right-side play while Nate loves the Don’ts.

Among the material we’ll cover:

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

Right Side Betting Progressions, Money Management and Discipline

Basic Don’t Play

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 Nate 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.

Saturday’s session is available stand-alone at the following pricing:

First-time student tuition for students who have never attended a Dice Control Seminar in the past is $995 for the full day Saturday PLUS all Live Casino Sessions on Sunday.  New Students sign on via PayPal at the following link:

Want to strengthen your game even more?  On Sunday morning Heavy and DarthNater will be back at the dealer school with their Advanced Betting Strategy Seminar featuring Heavy’s favorite right side moves and DarthNater’s top Dark Side strategies.  This is the same great content we’ve taught at our Darksider’s Ball classes and our highly acclaimed Right or Wrong Weekend Seminars.  Remember, if you don’t learn to play the Don’ts you’re guaranteed to lose around 50% of the time at craps.  Learn to play the Dark side and pick your entry points correctly and you will increase your win rate dramatically.  Learn to increase your profit on your right-side play and your bankroll will grow even more.  That’s exactly what this Advanced Betting Session is all about.  The cost?  Just $359.  Sign on at the following link:

Remember, Axis Power Craps is the oldest continuously operated dice control school in the business.  DarthNater and I have known each other for almost 20 years and between us we’ve trained thousands of students – some who have themselves gone on to become some of the best dice controllers around.  Our joint seminars in recent years are in the books as some of the best ever.  Between my Right-Side approach to the game and DarthNater’s Dark Side approach – you can’t go wrong.

Space IS limited and Biloxi is our most popular seminar location year in and year out.  Make your plans and sign on today.

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!
