Can you help me with the 3V set?21 August 2008
I am on the road right now but I asked one of the great Golden Touch instructors, Billy the Kid, to answer your e-mail.
For your great question I am giving you a free 10-day subscription to our private, members-only website www.goldentouchcraps.com. We have over 5,000 members on this private site and the discussions are interesting, enlightening and fun. Enjoy.
All the best in and out of the casinos!
Thanks for the question and I hope your interest in the great game of craps continues.
Not all dice control books are equal and the Golden Touch Dice Control Revolution! by Frank Scoblete and Dominator is by far the best, so read it many times since there is usually something that you gain in each reading. You might want to invest in our Golden Touch DVD Beating Craps by Controlling the Dice so that you can see exactly how the dice should look in the air and after they land. Most of our new students report that it has helped them quite a bit in their practice.
It takes a well-practiced shooter tossing to see a difference in the results from transposing dice sets like the 3V. After you become a proficient thrower you will notice that inverting your dice set alters your results slightly. Many of us do invert our sets to favor different numbers. Since we have many years of practice we have records to show us what to expect when we do so.
When your dice go off axis using the 3V set you have a much greater chance of seeing the seven not an eight or some other number, this is why the instructors here at Golden Touch Craps recommend using the hard way set, especially for beginners. Setting the dice in the hardway configuration gives a shooter more protection from the seven since one die must rote 180 degrees in relation to the other to show a seven. As you become more proficient at keeping the dice on axis you can move to the 3V or 2V set and have good results but not before you are ready and have proven your skill through many thousands of rolls.
The best way to test your dice throwing skill is by using the SmartCraps program to record your results. This special program records your roll results and tests your skill using three "pro tests." It tests for on and off axis results and primary and secondary hits. SmartCraps will also suggest alternate dice sets as your skill improves.
Good luck in your quest to conquer the great game of craps.
