Angle for a dice throw

19 May 2011

Dear Frank,

I have to say that I've enjoyed reading your various books and watching your GTC video. I'm also currently trying to hone my GTC throw. I do have one question and you may have answered this in the past.

In your books and videos, you indicate that the dice must take off at a 45 degree angle out of your hand. Being an engineer, I know that a 45 degree angle is a 1 to 1 slope and if your are standing at SR1 or 2 or SL1 or 2 that is approximately 8-9 ft from the back wall. If the dice are thrown at a 45 degree angle, that would mean the dice would peak at four feet before hitting the table near the back wall. That peak would mean the dice are a little above the dealers' heads.

Is that too high for a "legal" craps throw?

Thanks for all the books and articles you've written,
Ed

Dear Ed:

If you take the dice from in front of you and lift them into the air at a 45 degree angle, they will indeed be slightly over the heads of the dealers and this, as you stated, is a no-no. The stickman has to follow the dice and watch the bets on the layout and doing these two things would be impossible with a true 45-degree angle.

The 45-degree litany is actually used to get students to throw with a decent loft to their dice and not line-drive them as most will do when they first start training. The dice are probably not at an exact 45-degree angle but it is a good guideline for new throwers.

I'm glad that you enjoy my books and that you are working on your throw.

I am giving you a free 30-day subscription to my private members-only website at www.goldentouchcraps.com. We have over 5,000 members on this private site and the conversations are interesting, enlightening and fun.

Enjoy!

All the best in and out of the casinos!
