Question: If you are so good, why do you teach?

Answer: When I first moved to Las Vegas almost three years ago, my passion was to become a dealer for the games of Craps and Blackjack. I went to the dealer school, Aces Full on Sahara Avenue, and earned my dealers certificates for both games. As I was going to school, I was also playing most every day. It began to dawn on me that I was making more money on the player's side of the table, than I could make dealing. So why do I want to deal?

But I also found that as a professional player, you have to have another outlet, something that will allow you to take a break from straight play. Playing professionally is NOT entertainment; it is hard work and requires a lot of discipline. If you do not have another outlet for your energies, you will experience an early burn out. It can also add too much pressure on you as a player, especially if you feel that you have to win every time. And, by the way, you cannot win every time. 

When I bought my 12' regulation size craps table, it was for my own personal practice sessions. Shortly after that someone asked me, "Why don't you teach a dice class?" I had really never thought about teaching a class before. 

I did enjoy the game and had developed some consistent skills over the years, so I decided to give it a try. I found that I really enjoyed working with people and what I had to offer seemed to be a big hit with all of the students. So after a few successful classes, "DiceCoach.Com" was born- with the help of Pablo, our Webmaster, and his wife - Pat, and, of course, the help and support of my wife- Beth. 

So, why do I teach? It is very simple, by teaching and coaching the students; I am constantly reviewing and discussing plays and performance. That not only benefits the students, but it improves my own personal skills, ultimately benefiting my bankroll. So the teaching is a two way street. There are benefits for the student in learning new strategies, as well as perfecting their established skills. And I gain additional skills in the constant repetition, ultimately becoming a more consistent player myself.

There is one additional benefit to teaching. I love to meet my students in the casino. I know their skills, their sets and their performance level. And, in knowing my shooters, I can better read the flow of the game and increase my bankroll with the casino's money! 

Remember all you need is one good shooter out of three, for everyone to make money!

Another 20 minute roll!  I think between that little modification and adopting your betting tactics, that this will work well in the long run.  Thanks again!  - Bill -
