"Occasional players... have limited time and find it difficult to accept the patience required, as one of the most important rules towards becoming the successful player. He feels that he MUST TAKE SHOTS. This lack of patience also prevents the player from accepting that today's game is a continuance of yesterday's game. That tomorrow's game (tomorrow actually, or a year from tomorrow literally) is an extension of today's game."
"Don't try impressing the casino personnel with your LOSSES. They will respect you much more as a WINNER. (Comp-wise and otherwise.)"
"We as crapshooters should care very little about the MATHEMATICAL END RESULTS. As a Right or as a Wrong bettor, should the dice go in our direction, WE'LL KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE."
"The successful gambler accepts he will have losing streaks. HIS TRAINING HAS PREPARED HIM FOR ONE OR MANY CONSECUTIVE LOSSES. A good money manager WILL NOT DOUBLE UP in an effort to regain losses. The opposite is closer to the truth. He would be more apt to REDUCE the size of his betting stakes. He knows from experience, that DIMES WILL BECOME DOLLARS, if and when the dice turn for him. ONE GOOD ONE, MAKES UP FOR MANY BAD ONES, may be an old carnival quote, but is one the smart money manager is entitled to use."
"Being at the RIGHT TABLE at the RIGHT TIME, is another cliche quote. This is DUMB LUCK. But winning $2000 instead of $200 on the SAME HAND with the SAME starting (or initial) bet, is not luck. IT'S SENSIBLE PROGRESSIVE BETTING!!"
"Don't be envious of the player who is raking in winning bets from all over the craps layout. Any bet you care to make on a crap table can be won. Not once, but again and again. This does not mean you are making smart bets. Just the opposite. This again is dumb luck! Sooner or later (usually sooner) YOU WILL HIT THE BRICK WALL."
"In gambling always LIMIT YOUR LOSSES...NEVER LIMIT YOUR WINNINGS."
"The successful player is not surprised when he wins. He feels he DESERVED to win because of the time and effort he put into preparing himself to win. When he loses, the House knows that THEY WON IT THE HARD WAY!"
"The dice are so unpredictable, they could CONVERT THE POPE TO A PROTESTANT!"
"To me, the crap game is, and always has been a highly over-rated challenge. I never did, and still don't accept that in the long run, the House will grind you out. Granted they have an edge, but if a crapshooter can show a winning batting average over a period of time lasting many years, then don't tell me it's a written guarantee you MUST lose your money."
"A very important bit of advice... PICK and STICK to the one method of play that most appeals to and excites you. PLAY FOR KEEPS!! You will stand a much better chance of walking TO the cashier's cage, rather than PAST the cashier's cage."
"YOU NEVER CHASE A LOSING BET!!"
"The very small handful of truly professional crapshooters, I've personally known during my lifetime at the crap tables, have ALL been Wrong Bettors."
"It is almost a fact, whether you are a Right or a Wrong Bettor, that it is to your advantage to have as few bets as possible in action. In the case of the Right Bettor, the more bets you have spread out on the table, the more individual winning rolls of the dice you must get, just to cover your investment on this one shooter, let alone show a profit."
"I WILL limit how much I could possible LOSE at any one session, but I'll never limit how much I can WIN."
