How Were the Captain's 147 Rolls Counted?

12 November 2006

Dear Frank:

How were the Captain 's 147 rolls counted (http://www.goldentouchcraps.com/captainrolls147.shtml). Usually people don't count their rolls. You may hear of someone holding the dice for 20 minutes or 30 minutes but rarely if ever do you hear that someone threw the dice 36 times or 43 times. You may hear they made 10 points.

Thank you,
Larry

Dear Larry:

Golden Touch Craps players started to count the rolls in January of 2003 by using chips. Trying to keep this in your head would be a chore and, as you say, in the past most people just estimated the time. I wish I had kept a record of the Arm's rolls from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s because I think she might have the most 40 and 50 (plus) rolls of anyone in history, but I never did.

Here's how we do it. As a roll progresses you use white chips for the first four, then a red chip for five, then reds and whites until you reach 25, then a green, and so on. With the Captain I used a black chip as well. The Captain's 147-roll hand, Stanley Fujitake's 118-roll hand, and the Captain's 100-roll hand, are the three longest eye-witnessed hands I know about. For the Golden Touch World Records page we only accept rolls that have been witnessed by our GTC players and associates so Fujitake's record is not listed on that page.

I am giving you a free month on our private web site at www.goldentouchcraps.com. I think you will find the posts interesting and enlightening.

All the best in and out of the casinos!
