Readers Write (Captain's 5 Count and Its Relation to The Theory of Rhythmic Rollers)30 September 2000
Probably the Captain's long-run success at craps using the 5-Count has to do with the existence of rhythmic rollers. The 5-Count allows us to be there for extended periods of time, so that when these individuals show up we haven't lost so much that we can't come roaring back. So, yes, I am a believer.
Rhythmic rolling is not such a hard thing for me to swallow. Since I have seen two in action numerous times (the Arm and the Golden Arm) and know a third (Sharpshooter), it isn't a great leap of faith to figure there are many more out there. I have also received dozens of letters form individuals who claim to have some control over the dice or who know folks that do. The operant word is "some control" because no rhythmic roller has absolute control. But a slight decrease in the appearance of the seven or a slight increase in a single die-face will take a slightly negative expectation and make it slightly positive. Over the past half dozen years I have been practicing my own rolling style with great success.
But the key to me is that 5-Count. It positions you to take advantage of rhythmic rollers when they appear -- even if that RR is yourself! My new book, Forever Craps: The Five Step Advantage Player Method, will have much more on rhythmic rolling and shooter selection. You can call 1-800-944-0406 to order a copy. The book retails at $13.95 but Paone Press is selling it for $12.50. We should have copies several weeks before they hit the bookstores and internet websites.
By the way, Bally's is indeed one of the casinos that the Captain frequents in Atlantic City (including the Wild Wild West). Since I'll be seeing him in a couple of weeks to do some interviews, I'll say hi to him from you!
All the best in and out of the casinos!
