I love the game of craps. No other game offers so much excitement. It can be a real roller coaster ride as the table goes from choppy to hot to cold. There are so many different bets and strategies you can use.
It makes you think and stay on your toes. Fun as it may be, I learned very quickly that I needed a plan to survive at the craps table. I bought various strategy books, watched how other people played and just gained experience with my own time spent at the tables.
The hard part of betting both sides is learning to recognize when the trend is happening. Once the dice leave the shooter's hand the results are unpredictable. There are times that no matter which way you bet, you are going to lose. It's the nature of the game. That's why there isn't any system that will make you a winner (including my own). The odds are always against you.
The only thing you can do is gain knowledge on how the game works, and devise a plan that is adaptable and will help you last at the table. I've developed a style of play that limits my losses and puts me in a position to take advantage of a hot roll. Yes, there have been times I've taken a beating using this method, but more often then not, I walk away from the table a winner.
A couple of years ago I took an evening course in computer programming at my local university. I've always been interested in computers and technology and a saw this as an opportunity to gain some knowledge in that area. As a final degree project we were supposed to make a homepage about a subject we were interested in. Of course I chose to make a homepage about craps, that it is my biggest passion. So what you are looking at now is the result of a three month HTML course. I know it might not be the best looking website out there, but I'm happy with the result anyway. And if I improve my skills in CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) some things might also improve on the site. I hope you will enjoy it!
