Finding Your “Sweet” Spot on The Craps Table

craps shooting position

Lets talk about how to find your optimal craps shooting position.

The first spot to the stickman’s left is known as SL1 (Stick Left 1).

The first spot to the stickman’s right is known as SR1 (Stick Right 1).

So you get the idea. When you are positioned at the end of the table (center end), we call that SO (Straight Out).

What I have done is configure my practice station so I can shoot from all sides. I use software called BoneTracker to record my throws. I am left handed so I already know that most of the left side of the craps tables wont work for me. So I focused on recorded data from craps shooting position SR1, SR3 and SRSO (Stick right straight out).

***PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU CAN PERFECT “SO” YOU CAN SHOOT FROM EITHER END OF THE TABLE***

CRAPS SHOOTING POSITION LAYOUT

I like to throw 144 rolls per location and then analyze that data.

I have been shooting from SR1 for a long time, but have recently had some issues in the casino I go to the most. My arm will often extend past an invisible line in front of the stickman and sometimes they ask you to not go past a certain point. That causes you to “choke” back your throw and usually seven out.

To avoid this situation AND to attract a little less heat form the boss man I decided I needed to move down some. But move to where? So I decided to test 3 spots. The initial test was a simple 144 roll per position to see what got the best SRR (Seven to Roll Ratio).  Once I determined the 2 best spots out of the 3 I ran the tests again.

SR3 is my sweet spot.
