His new bride said, "No, that's fine with me. Just understand that there will be sex here in our bedroom at nine o'clock every night - whether you're here or not."
Sometimes we are just TOO EASY of a target!
Well, there are quite a few more e-questions that have made their way to me. Due to the scheduling of other articles, I cant always answer them here in a timely manner. Hopefully they will be of some help, enlightenment or assistance in improving your game.
There may be players who are MUCH better at Precision-Shooting than I am. The fact that they dont come out and show themselves is probably for self-preservation purposes. Whether it be to preserve their income from the prying eyes of the tax-man; or to protect what they know is a good thing; or just to save themselves the hassle of having to explain what they do and how they do it.
You have to understand that there are hordes of nay-sayers out there who are just looking, watching, and waiting for someone to say that they can make a profit from this game. They take potshots at those who are actually doing something about it, instead of trying to improve their own game. Lyle Stuart has long said that if you are going to make a good living off of this game, then do it in the dark! Simply, he means that a person shouldnt shout about their success from every roof-top or every web-site for that matter. His advice is sound, and perhaps I should observe it a little more.
As for me, well, more than 18-months ago, I was invited to contribute an article for Irishsetters new web-site. This site has helped me a lot, and I am sincerely grateful for that. If you have a chance to read my, How YOU Improved MY Game article, you will see exactly what I mean.
For example; if you only bet the Pass Line, and consistently throw a ton of non-point numbers; then a high SRR probably wont help you out at all. Conversely, if you Place-bet all of the Inside Numbers and then do a double or triple-regression after one hit, you have almost assuredly locked in a profit after as little as two throws of the dice. There are ways to make consistent money on the do side of the dice with an SRR as low as 4:1, you just have to know where the opportunities lay.
It was interesting to read on Heavys Message Board that Sharpshooter has an SRR of about 8.25:1, while a recent good-ole-boy convert to Precision-Shooting is easily eclipsing that with a consistent 10:1 ratio. In either case, both of those players should be finding consistent profitability with their skills, and it should tell you that success is not as elusive as it might sometimes seem.
As a side note to that, keep one thing in mind. Once you are able to keep the dice on-axis, it is just a matter of practice until you get those on-axis dice to have the same number of rotations before stopping. THAT is the secret to achieving what some people probably regard as outlandish claims of higher SRR numbers. Its not impossible folks, it just takes some focused, concerted effort to achieve consistent tosses.
To get consistent SRRs much beyond the 8:1 range, you have to incorporate that same-number-of-rotations approach, or you have to master the dead-cat-bounce method of throwing. Ive been preaching these methods of play for several years now dating back to Larry Edells old casino.com/craps board. Still, the line of unbelievers is long and distinguished, just like my well you get the idea.
