Heavy & DarthNater’s 

“Back to Biloxi” Craps Clinic

September 17th – 19th, 2021

Right on the heels of July’s Sold-Out Biloxi Seminar – Heavy is heading BACK to Biloxi to team up with the Lord of the Darkside – DarthNater – for yet another “Back to Biloxi” Beach Bash! It’s just around the corner – September 17th – 19th – so make your seminar AND hotel reservations NOW! If you wait too long to sign on you just may miss out on the action. This class will sell out quickly!

Craps players LOVE Biloxi casinos’ generous odds, automatic Buy bets on outside numbers, friendly dealers and easy comps. 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. One Basic BoneTracking Session for those of you just learning the software, and Three Advanced BoneTracking Sessions for those of you who have some history with the software; but want to raise your game with expert analysis of your toss results using cutting edge analytics that are presently under development. 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. We will be using the New BoneTracker Extended that was released to the Axis Power Craps community this April.

The Advanced BoneTracking Sessions will build your 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. Each of these sessions is limited to a maximum of 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
BEST DEAL! BOTH Basic and Advanced Classes Combined: $649

Students signing up for the Advanced BoneTracking Class must submit a book of 560 – 720 rolls in BoneTracker format by SEPTEMBER 1ST to allow time for the coaches to complete their analysis of the rolls.

Again, ONE Basic and THREE Advanced sessions are available for a max of TWO players per session. Due to the limited number of slots open, expect these slots to sell out quickly. Sign up early if you wish to lock in one of these slots. 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 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. 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 is a master of 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 by each coach.  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. Note that we limit the number of students per table in the break-out sessions to 6 – 8. If class size exceeds that number, we’ll bring in a third coach and run all three tables in order to have smaller breakout sessions. All students will rotate through all coaching stations so each coach can look at every student’s toss and give their own analysis. Bottom line – you’ll have plenty of time to work on your throw and observe others being coached 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 also receive a copy of Heavy’s original Axis Power Craps Seminar on DVD or USB Flash Drive.  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 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? Just $359.

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.

  • Recognizing Craps Shooters, Streaks and Trends

    Craps is a game of streaks. Streaks of Point – Seven Out. Streaks of Point – Pass, and most often, choppy streaks where there is no dominant trend.  Recreational gamblers tend to believe strongly in streaks and trends, probably because in hindsight, this is when they’ve won most of...
