This Lesson 4 concerns the five skills necessary to achieve a
consistent and permanent edge over the casinos. In my dice
control course called PARR for Patterson Rhythm Roll, we call
them the five linchpins. They are:
- The Set
- The Grip
- The Throw
- The Bet
- The Zone
This last linchpin, the Zone, is the most important and is the
subject of a free audiotape described at the end of this Special
Report I will send you at your request.
The Set is where it starts. Setting the dice puts the losing
sevens out of the way to reduce their chances of hitting. In
**Casino Gambling** Chapter 12 you were introduced to two
sets to accomplish this objective -- the 6-T Set and the
Quick Set both described on pages 128 and 129.
The Grip is important because it prepares you to launch
the dice with control. The 3-fingered front Grip is explained
and illustrated in ** Casino Gambling** Chapter 12 on page 131.
The Throw itself is performed with the objective of keeping
the dice together in their orbit and during
touchdown and roll against the back wall of the table, thus
achieving control and minimizing the chances of the losing 7
occurring. Launching at a 45-degree angle is recommended to
to minimize their "splatter" and avoid randomness.
The Throw or Delivery is explained on page 130 of
My co-author, Sharpshooter, has proved mathematically that it only
takes one throw with control out of 43 throws to achieve a break-even
status against the casino.
Anything above one controlled throw in 43 and you have turned the
tables on the casino and created your own advantage. For example,
Sharpshooter has also shown (on page 124) that if you can throw
the dice seven times during the point cycle, instead of the random
six times, that you can achieve an advantage of just under 10%
on the 6 and 8 place bets.
Many of our over 500 PARR Players have achieved a Sevens-to-rolls
ratio of 1 to 7 or higher.
Imagine how it would feel to make pass line bets and place bets with the
confidence of collecting winnings, sometimes substantial winnings, and
have a monster hand before throwing the losing seven?
And all of this based on your own skill level, not dependent on the shuffle
at the blackjack table, or the spin of the wheel at roulette, or the
fickleness of the baccarat cycles of wins and losses.
Onward to the fourth linchpin.
You were introduced to the fourth linchpin -- the Bet -- in Chapter
13 with alternative betting tactics to match the degree of risk
you wish to take and to maximize your chances of making a profit
on the point cycle -- your rolls, and numbers hit, before throwing
the losing 7.
Now comes the most important linchpin of all -- focus and
concentration. We call this "The Zone" and define it as a mental
state that allows us to separate from distractions and focus and
concentrate on utilizing the muscle memory we have developed
for the first three linchpins -- the set, the grip and the throw.
One of the five departed friends I dedicated **Casino Gambling**
to was Dr. Steven Heller. Dr. Heller was a prominent and extremely
successful practicing psychologist in the Southern California area
who worked with professional athletes showing them how to "zone in"
to make contact with the golf ball or sink the three point shot or
make solid contact and stroke the baseball, for example.
In the gambling world, he shows craps shooters how to easily zone
in before each roll of the dice thus maximizing their chances of
repeating muscle memory and throwing another winning number.
OK, let's get to the Free Gift I mentioned at the top because it
concerns Dr. Heller's application of The Zone to dice control.
I would like to send you at no cost or obligation an
audiotape. It begins with Doctor Heller talking about
The Zone and its importance not only in craps, but in
other walks of life as well. This was recorded about six
months before his death from pancreatic cancer
in November 1997.
Following Dr. Heller is a discussion about The Zone in my
most recent PARR Class held in Las Vegas in March
2001. You will hear students discussing their use of
the Zone in casino sessions just an hour or so before
the tape was recorded. You will hear them talk about
what it meant to their success and about what
happened when they were in the Zone and what happened
and why when they exited the Zone too quickly.
You will find this audiotape extremely interesting and
enlightening even if you have no interest in purchasing
the complete PARR Dice Control Course.
Most important of all, this tape comes with a special
deep discount offer for acquiring The Zone
component of my PARR dice control course.
This key fifth linchpin together with **Casino Gambling**
delivers everything you need to learn dice control on your own.
Everything you need to know to walk up to a craps table
with an advantage, with an excellent chance of creating a hot
table, and of throwing number after number without the losing seven
showing and of collecting profits on almost every roll of the dice.

critiqued by Sharpshooter in the Dealer School Practice
