 Volume I : Issue IV

September 2001:

Dicesetter.com is finally here!   Yes, the new domain is up and running.  I hope none of you are having geocities banner ad withdrawals.  Speaking of geocities.  I had hoped to make a big splashy move to the new domain, but as it turns out, the folks at geocities started blocking access to my old site because it was getting too much traffic.  So, instead of a big splashy move, it was more of a hectic area by area move.  As you have seen, there haven't been too many changes in the layout of the site.  I hope to make some functionality changes in the coming months, so keep an eye out!  If you do find broken links, please email me and let me know.

Remember! When visiting the site, make sure you always check to see What's New!

What's the Magic Word?

No, it's not "Please" or "Thank You."  The magic words are dice setting.  Though it hasn't been propagated throughout the web yet, I have also registered the key words "dice setting."  So, for many internet portals,  you may now just type "dice setting" in the address field of your browser in place of https://www.dicesetter.com

Depending on your settings, you'll either be whisked directly to the site, or a search window will come up asking if you want to be directed to the dice setting site.  I chose "dice setting" and not "precision shooting" because even though the two terms are not synonymous, those who are just beginning their journey into precision shooting, interchange the two terms .  Between the new domain, and the key words, I expect the site to become much more visible, drawing more shooters into our community.

Novice Shooters Can Make A Profit Despite Low SRR's
(The V-3's Set as a Case In Point)

I want to first say that this is just my humble opinion.  If you have an alternative point of view I will gladly hear it, and perhaps even print it in a future edition of the newsletter.

So, why would I make a statement like this?  First of all, before even delving into the dice influencing implications, I want to restate that:

Precision shooting without a strong corresponding betting strategy and discipline will not yield the profits you seek!

To begin with, there  REALLY are only six possible dice sets.  They can be manipulated a multitude of ways showing many many horizontal and vertical dice faces, but the reality is, each die has three axis’ and there two dice, therefore there are only six possible sets.  Three are strong for comeout (assuming you are a right bettor) and three are strong for seven avoidance when executed properly.  For this discussion, I will ignore the comeout sets altogether.  It’s of course imperative that you learn and practice a set for the comeout throw, and I have my own favorites for achieving certain results, but for now, letís move on to after a point has been established.

Comin' Out!

In last month's newsletter, I asked for examples of come out sets and/or strategies from readers when they are shooting.  Here are some examples of what came in:

Dice Set: Straight Sixes, 5's facing. 
Pass Line bet plus Whirl bet.  "This set seems to generate a lot of horn numbers, hence the whirl bet"
If the 7 or the whirl hit, press the whirl.

Big Lou:
Dice Set: All Sevens:  (5 and 2 on horizontal surface, 3 and 4 facing)

F. Leong:
Dice Set: Crossed Sixes
Pass Line for $10 plus $5 on Horn high 12

Straight Sixes, 5's facing down table
Pass Line bet only unless craps or Yo is thrown, then I'll put up a Horn bet, high on whatever appeared.
Prefer the straight sixes set to the all sevens because I establish 6 and 8 as the point much more frequently with the straight sixes.  (For some reason, I would frequently throw the 4 or 10 with the all sevens set)

What a Trip!

If you make a trip to the tables, whether you have success or not, we can all learn from the experiences of others.   So, send me the details of your sessions and I'll post them in the Trip Reports area.

Just Call Me Webster...

If you have a moment or two of free time, please take a look at the the Precision Shooter's Dictionary . I'd like to bolster the terminology in the dictionary.  If you have a word or phrase that you think is missing, please email me with the suggestion.  Thanks!

If you have any comments or ideas for future issues, feel free to email me at ed@dicesetter.com  And as always, I'm looking for contributors with a fresh perspective.
