First, thanks for becoming a Golden Subscriber to The New Chance and Circumstance magazine. As you know the magazine does not have any advertising from casinos and we depend on our subscribers to keep us afloat. I have done several free informal seminars with some of our Golden Subscribers in Las Vegas and Atlantic City recently and they have been a lot of fun. You'll be informed when and where the next one is as soon as I plan it. In the past, gaming writers Henry Tamburin, John Robison, Walter Thomason, John Grochowski and Bill Burton have partaken in such informal seminars with me and the beautiful AP and our Golden Subscribers.
I wish I could help you with your question concerning buying or making a craps table. Perhaps if you call the Gambler's General Store in Las Vegas, you could get some help. Wendy Rock, the owner, probably knows the wholesalers as her store is a veritable supermarket of gaming products. (I've done all my practicing the hard way -- in casinos!)
When I stand on the stickman's right, it is very easy to use the "overhand grip" -- which is the backhand first as you mentioned. In fact, this grip seems easy from either side of the stickman. I have now used the overhand grip about 30 times but I am not yet proficient with it and I have had some disastrous rolls since I go up on myself right away when I roll and don't wait for the 5-Count. So now I tend to go back and forth between my "overhand" and "underhand" roll.
The Captain, by the way, has taken up the "V" threes as his set and his overhand roll is beautiful. His control is amazing.
For people who wish to play the Supersystem and are not attempting to develop a "rhythmic roll," then the positions at the top ends of the table are the best. However, at this stage of my craps playing career, I find the stickman to be where it's at.
All the best in and out of the casinos!
