Stick Calls

After Las Vegas dealing students understand the basic premise of Craps, the next step is to memorize the stick calls. They are the instruction book of how to deal Craps. Eventually, you’ll find your own toolbox of catch phrases. When the point is 8, you’ll pass the shooter the dice and say: “Shake an 8, shooter.” Or when it’s 9: “9 the line, shooter.” And with a 10: “10 again, shooter.” Until you find your own rhythm, use the stick calls on the next pages. Don’t glance over them casually. Memorize them. And when you recite them, shout them with life and exuberance. A lively stickman means a lively Craps game, and a boring stickman means a boring Craps game.
