Who's On Your Support Team?

Small changes in your game can create big differences in your results.

Making a difference for others is one of the most satisfying ways to feel like my time spent with fellow players is worthwhile. When observing an aspect of another player’s game, sometimes a small suggestion for change is all it takes to make a huge difference in the results of a player’s game.

While visiting Vegas this past week, I decided to go to the Bellagio craps pit for a quick session before heading to the airport, I happened upon a table that caught my eye. The shooter, one whose style of delivering the dice looked very familiar to me, caught my attention. I noticed the shooter’s face and recognized him as someone I had interacted with in the past. I was not able to buy in right away, so I watched him during his session.

At the end of his session, I made a small suggestion for change with the way he was delivering the dice. I’ll keep the details of my suggestion short and share that I asked this great player to consider shooting from the deck without back swing in delivery. With this in mind, he proceeded to another casino to give the small change a try. We bid each other farewell and I headed to the airport.

The next day, I received a phone call from this same player to thank me for the suggestion. It proved to be very profitable during his subsequent session. For me, it was great to hear follow up to my suggestion. I am always interested in hearing from the community members sharing their wonderful, profit producing session reports.

I believe that success at the tables depends very much on the support and help of others. I know a lot of players who get ahead faster when they get supporters and mentors on their side. Having these people help you understand your results, regardless of the outcome, will keep you appreciative of those experiences. We really have to accept and appreciate the results of our choices because we are our choices.

Additionally, I feel the degree of success at the tables is closely tied to the quality of relationships maintained in our gaming journey. The more close relationships you have with like-minded people who genuinely care about your success, the more success you will have at the tables. So, in this respect, experiencing a huge positive difference in your game is a team effort.

As we end this year reflecting on our ups and downs of this past year, remember that the good times are more fun when you play with people you like. And, the bad times are much easier to reconcile when you can turn to the same people for support and/or encouragement. At times, all it takes is a caring, astute observer from your support team to suggest a small change to make a huge improvement in your game.

During this wonderfully magical time of year, let your life be filled with Peace, Love and Craps. Happy Holidays!

Is there some reason why you work 40 hard hours to earn $500, then spend four hard hours giving it away to your favorite casino? Has anyone, at any casino, ever thanked you?
