Heavy’s & DarthN8r’s Axis Power Craps

Right or Wrong Weekend

and

Darksider’s Ball

November 11 – 13th, 2020

Yes, the Yin and Yang of Craps Coaches will be at it again – Friday thru Sunday, November 13th – 15th in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. We’re anticipating the casinos to be open at that glorious time of year when Vegas temperatures just start to crest in the mid-70’s every day before dipping down into the crisp 30’s at night. Enjoy a taste of Vegas when you can walk across the parking lot without the soles of your shoes melting! Enjoy a fantastic weekend of craps training in Darth’s secret craps pit with the million-dollar view overlooking the pool, the golf course, the lake, and of course – that sensational Vegas skyline.

On Friday we’ll kick things off early with FOUR BoneTracker sessions – two on Friday morning and two more on Friday afternoon. We’ll offer both a beginner and an advanced session in the morning and afternoon sessions – and each session will run 90 minutes. Beginner sessions will cover the basics of BoneTracker; how to input data correctly, interpret the basic results, navigate the various tabs, and drill down to the information you need to make informed decisions about your sets, bets, and toss. The Advanced session takes you well beyond that, including an in-depth analysis of your own rolls (a book of 720 rolls is required to be submitted in advance of the class in BoneTracker format). Analysis will include a look at alternate dice sets for specific results, including such specialty bets as the All Tall Small and Fire Bet wagers. The cost of each session is $299. Sign up for both the Beginner and Advanced Session for $549 and save $50. Enrollment links below:

On Saturday we jump right in where we always begin – teaching you the things you didn’t know you didn’t know. We’ll cover the fundamentals of dice control as well as some basic principles of group play that we do our best to adhere to on seminar weekends and beyond. Then we get right down to individual toss training with an eye toward developing YOUR toss into the best throw it can be. In most cases we will not make wholesale changes to a player’s established toss – we’ll simply correct any minor mistakes or habits that you’ve fallen into. But if you need more work, we’ll jump on it. We’ll also provide you with a written assessment with the goal of getting you to a baseline toss you can start out with on ANY table – then adjust from there as needed based on table conditions and results.

Shortly after midday we’ll break for lunch. Odds are lunch will include a brief live session at a local casino where once again we’ll have a chance to observe you in live play. Afterward we’ll return to Darth’s craps pit to debrief, discuss, then continue toss training and move on to betting basics, money management, and discipline. Typically the class wraps up around 5:30 – 6:00 PM. After that everyone is on their own for dinner, individual or team play, or just kicking back and relaxing for the evening.

Tuition for the Dice Control Seminar on Saturday is $895 for first time students, $795 for GTC Alumni Students, and $695 for Axis Power Craps Alumni Students. Enroll at the links listed below:

On Sunday morning we’ll offer an optional add-on Betting Strategy Class. This is really where the rubber meets the road and you learn to put together what you learned in the dice control class with proper betting strategies for the situation at hand. This class is split about 40/40 between Right Side and Dark Side play, with the remaining 20% focusing on hybrid or hedge plays that utilize both the Right Side and the Dark Side as part of the strategies. This class stretches about four hours and is, quite frankly, a Master’s Class in betting. While it is an optional add on class – everyone signing on for the seminar weekend should sign on for this class. Not that if you have taken an Axis Power Craps Seminar in the past and wish to sign up for the Betting Strategy Class ONLY you may. The tuition for this class is $395 for first time students. $295 for Axis Power Craps Alumni Students. Enroll at the links listed below:

On Sunday afternoon DarthN8r and I will play a couple of Live casino sessions with the students who sign on for the weekend’s events. Typically, these sessions range from 45 to 90 minutes each – depending on casino conditions. Locations to be decided and announced at the seminar itself.

The classes DarthN8r and I have offered recently – Last September’s Darksider’s Ball Seminar, this year’s Jumpstart January and June Jam Seminars – not only Sold Out – they were some of the best classes we’ve ever offered in terms of pure craps educational content. Don’t miss out on your chance to learn from two of the best in the business. November is the perfect time to hit Vegas. Make your plans to join us now!

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.

 

  • Getting Out of Your Rut

    A few years back I cranked up a “get out of your rut” series on the Axis Power Craps forum. The idea behind the article was simple enough. If you’re continuing to do the same old thing at the tables year after year and you’re not getting the kind...

  • Knowing When to Walk Away

    Quick, without thinking – when is the best time to end your craps session? If you said “while you’re ahead” I like your thinking. Of course, then you have to decide just how MUCH you have to be ahead before you pull the plug. But that is where session...

  • Heavy’s “Back in Balance” Play

    Back about ten years ago I developed a betting strategy based on the observation that the craps table is always trying to stay “in balance” with the probability universe. In other words – Do decisions and Don’t decisions always work to balance out over the long run. You could...

  • Dice Control versus Card Counting

    What’s the difference in craps and blackjack? Ignoring the obvious, one is a dice game and one is a card game, there are a lot of differences in craps and blackjack – just as there are a lot of similarities. But there’s one major difference. A skilled dice influencer...

  • Being the Star of Your Own Show

    After 15 years of teaching other players the do’s and don’ts of craps it’s become apparent to me that we all live our lives more or less like actors in a play. There are good guys and bad buys, winners and losers, supporting characters and character actors. Depending on...

  • I’ll See Your Probability and Raise You an Absolute

    A statistician I’ve been exchanging e-mails with for a few years made a bold statement awhile back. It went something like this: “There are probably fewer than  three people in the world who can demonstrate a long run in-casino SRR in excess of 1:7.” He went on to state...

  • Prop Bet Pitfalls

    Prop bets. Gamblers love them. So do the casinos. That’s why they have the stick man hawking them like a carnival barker. Despite the occasional large pay outs on these bets the house cleans up on them. Let’s take a tour of the prop box and I’ll show you...

  • The Luck Factor

    Are some players really luckier than others, or does it just seem that way? Psychologists at Stanford University say “good luck” and success in life usually stems from certain attitudes. They identified five “luck factors” – every one of which can be applied to precision craps shooting and winning....

  • The Come Out Game

    In the seminars I do around the country I talk about the fact that there are two distinct sides of the game. The first side is the Come Out game. The second side is the Point Cycle game. New players generally don’t recognize this. Their approach to the game...

  • Gambling and the Law of Unintended Circumstances

    Have you ever been standing down in the hook with a bet in front of you when the dice hit your chips and bounced onto a seven? You didn’t mean for that to happen, and it’s doubtful that the shooter did either. But it happened, and it’s a great...

  • When Craps Turns to Crap

    Let’s face it. It happens to all of us. For one reason or another, skills we’ve developed at home don’t make the transition to the casino. Blame it on variance, bad luck, or something you ate for dinner – sometimes the correct craps play is no craps play. So...

  • Heavy’s Squeeze Box Play

  • Better Buy Bets

    Smart craps players never make place bets on the 4 and 10, and rarely place the 5 and 9. They make buy bets instead. Why? A buy bet gives you more bang for your buck. Here’s how. When you place a bet, your winnings are not paid true odds....

  • Risk versus Reward

    Risk. We face it everyday. Risk from uninsured motorists. Risk from eating too much red meat. Risk from unprotected sex. Risk when we jaywalk in Vegas. Everyone, at some gut level, makes choices about risk every day – and in many cases these can be life or death decisions....

  • Goal Setting for Casino Craps

    Setting goals is a great way to plan for success. By setting goals on a routine basis you decide what you want to achieve, and then move step-by-step toward achieving them. The process of establishing things like Sevens to Rolls Ratio objectives and win goals allows you to choose...

  • One Pass Wonders

    Can you make money on a one pass – seven number hand? If not, perhaps it’s time to re-evaluate your play. With an SRR of 1:7 you have a huge advantage on the Pass Line with double odds, and the Place Bet on the Six and Eight. You may...

  • Focus on Fundamentals

    At least once a week I hear my daughter’s karate instructor tell the class to “focus on basic punches, basic kicks, and kata.” It’s the same sort of speech we used to get when I played high school football. “Focus on basic running, blocking and tackling.” In both cases...

  • Craps Betiquette

    Through the years I’ve talked about this many times in seminars and articles on craps.  I call it “Craps Betiquette” and it’s amazing how many people just don’t get it. Imagine that you are the shooter. You’ve made three passes, and nine rolls ago established the six as your...
