What makes great craps players?
Frank the author learned a lot from the legendary Captain about craps players. The Captain saw craps players as either "good shooters" or "bad shooters." He explained the good shooters were "rhythmic rollers" and he figured out that these few good shooters had perfected the technique of changing the game of craps to a positive game by the nature of their throws or what they called "controlled shooting". The bad shooters were sometimes called "chicken feeders" because of the way they rolled the dice as it was similar to how a farmer hand feeds grain to chickens in the coup.
This group is also known as losers because they never win, and it's all because of the way they throw the dice. Apparently, to become a true rhythmic roller it takes a lot of practice, time and discipline to master the technique much like a tennis player, professional golfer or bowler. The Captain called it an "athletic skill" that could take years to perfect by practicing almost everyday. But once you got it down, you have it and you're ready to win. Part of the skill is to concentrate and relax; you must have control over your body and mind and this is something very difficult for most people to undertake when playing craps.
