Axis Power Craps June Jam in Massachusetts 

June 23rd – 25th

With Heavy and 220 Inside 


Yes, you read that right. By public demand, your old pal Heavy is making a rare appearance North of the Mason-Dixon Line, heading up to the Northeast and joining forces with Axis Power Craps Certified Coach and BoneTracker 8.5+ co-creator Mark “220 Inside” Evangelisto for an Axis Power Craps weekend at Mark’s craps pit in Carver, Mass.

Those of you who have played with Mark in Atlantic City or at any of the Twin Rivers properties, or viewed his monster hands on Fantasy Craps on YouTube are well aware of his toss skills. He’s one of the best shooters in the APC camp and excels at teaching those skills to others. And since he co-wrote the code for the latest versions of BoneTracker – if you need help getting started or advancing to the next level with a full BoneTracker analysis – he’s your guy.

If you’ve been struggling with BoneTracker, on Friday, the 23rd we’ll be offering FOUR sessions to get you on track. The first session is a Basic class to teach you the ins and outs of BoneTracker’s essential functions; how to enter rolls, navigate the various screens and interpret the results. This class will take you through all of the information you need to know to be able to get started analyzing your own rolls in BoneTracker using the latest version of the new BoneTracker Extended software. But there will be only ONE session offered – Friday morning – so plan your travel appropriately. This class will be limited to four new students.

The Advanced BoneTracking Sessions will build on your basic knowledge and provide you with a personal analysis of your own book of 560 – 720 rolls; while also taking a deep dive into your best dice sets for every number on the layout. We will offer TWO Advanced Classes on Friday afternoon, with each class limited to TWO students.  According to my Junior College Business Math Class – that’s a total of four students Friday afternoon.  Make the best of it and sign on NOW if you want one of those slots.  Once they’re gone you are – as we say in the South, SOL.  

Just to review. The morning beginning Bonetracker class is limited to four players. The two afternoon sessions will be limited to a maximum of two players each. The cost of these sessions breaks down as follows:

Basic BoneTracking Class: $299
Advanced BoneTracking Class: $399

BEST DEAL! Take BOTH the Basic and Advanced Classes and pay just: $659

(Note: If you sign up for both classes you will be assigned to the morning class and the first afternoon class if you are one of the first two to book that option.  We’ll also throw in a bologna sandwich lunch with a soft drink and a bag of chips – or something along those lines).  Students signing up for the Advanced BoneTracking Class must submit a book of 560 – 720 rolls in BoneTracker format by June 10th to allow time for the coaches to complete their analysis of the rolls. No exceptions.

The preferred sign up method is direct with Mark via Zelle at: Send payments to Mark via the Zelle app to inside.craps@gmail.com.

And that gets us to . . .

The Axis Power Craps Seminar itself.   Axis Power Craps is the acknowledge leader in Dice Control training these days. We’ve been in business longer than any of our major competitors and offer more choices in training than any other outfit in the business. It’s no wonder we have so many repeat clients. We’re a fun community of students, teachers and players who enjoy great times at the tables together.  Yes, that’s right.  Our coaches go to the tables with our students after the training sessions and bet on our student’s hands – unlike our competitors.  

On Friday night we’ll hold our traditional Meet and Greet Get-Together. We’ll knock back a few, renew old friendships and make new ones. Hungry? We know some local joints that serve great bar-food, but if you’re like most of the folks who attend these events, you’ll want to adjourn to the nearest tables – alone or in teams – to warm up for the weekend. Just don’t be out partying all night, because Saturday morning Mark and I will have serious craps training on our minds.

Both Saturday’s and Sunday’s classes will take place at Mark’s craps pit, hidden deep in a secret bunker beneath his country estate in Carver, Massachusetts.  Okay, I may be exaggerating that a little.  We’ll crank up the class promptly at 9AM each day, teaching the traditional on-axis toss on Saturday with the objective of getting you the best, most profitable toss ever.  And no, we don’t just teach you to shoot from one position.  We’ll work with you shooting from Sick Left, Stick Right, and Straight Out – time providing.  We’ll also get into the basics of bankroll, money management and discipline, and, if we don’t get side-tracked along the way, the fundamentals of advantage betting for dice influencers. Then, on Sunday, when move on into the bread and butter of our Advanced Betting Strategy Class, which covers Precision Shooting from the Right Side and the Dark Side, Power Press Strategies for the Right Side, DarthNater’s Favorite Dark Side Plays, and of course, those Hybrid Plays that let you straddle the fence and move from one side of the game to the other when the table is choppy. Learn it all to become a complete player!

Our complete two-day seminar includes training on:
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 Do ANDS Don’t Play
Advanced Hybrid Plays and Choppy Table Strategies
Power Pressing Individual Numbers and Pressing in Pairs
Getting Money On and OFF the Table
Live Casino Sessions with the Coaches
And More . . .

Learn to play the Dark side and pick your entry points correctly for transition plays; 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?

Remember, Axis Power Craps is the oldest continuously operated dice control school in the business. 220 Inside and I have known each other for around 10 years now, and between us we’ve trained and played with thousands of students – some who have themselves gone on to become some of the best dice controllers around. We’re looking forward to doing the same with you. Don’t miss this fun-filled weekend. Sign on now! Space is limited to the number of students we can comfortably we can fit around a 12’ casino table. Lock up your spot early!

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!

    It was Monday morning, right after breakfast.  We’d just opened a table and played once around the tub with no one catching anything more than a mid-teen level hand.  Then I got the dice and embarked on a 45 minute – 40 rolls mini-monster. As the hand progressed, and...

    Humor me for a few minutes. One of those singular moments that is freeze-framed perfectly in my mind was the first time I saw James Brown in concert. The year was 1964. The event was the T.A.M.I. show, a historical concert filmed in Santa Monica, California. The film also...

  • It’s Not What You Win That Counts – It’s What You Keep

    Ashile back a high profile player and gambling author was heard bragging about winning hundreds of thousands of dollars at craps during a prolonged streak. Is it possible? Certainly – if you bet big enough. I’ve seen students win over $100,000 at single sessions we’ve played over the years...

    From time to time a player will ask me if playing the Don’ts is compatible with precision shooting. My answer – absolutely. Think about it. The seven is already the most powerful number on the dice. If you can throw MORE sevens than the law of averages says you...
