Craps Strategies

Players at a Craps Game

by Aden on Sep.06, 2015, under Craps

If you are wanting thrills, boisterousness and more fun than you might be able to stand, then craps is simply the game to take part in.

Craps is a quick-paced game with whales, low-rollers, and everybody in the middle. If you’re a people-watcher this is one game that you will absolutely enjoy observing. There’s the whale, playing with a big amount of money and making loud announcements when he wagers across the board, "Five Hundred and Twenty dollars across," you’ll hear him say. He’s the player to watch at this table and they know it. The whale will either win big-time or lose big-time and there is no in between.

There’s the budget gambler, possibly attempting to acquaint themselves with the whales. He will inform the other gamblers of books she’s read through on dice setting and bum around the most accomplished shooter at the table, prepared to confer and "pick each others brains".

There is the student of Frank Scoblete most recent craps class. Although Frank is the best there is, his disciple needs to do his homework. This player will take 5 mins to set his dice, so practice understanding.

My preferred players at the table are the undeniable chaps from the old days. These elderly gentlemen are generally patient, mostly kind and will very likely always offer hints from the "great ole days."

When you take the plunge and decide to join the game, be sure you use good etiquette. Find a spot on the rail and lay your money on the table in front of you in the "come" area. Refrain from doing this when the dice are moving or you will become referred to as the last character I wished to mention, the jerk.
