    Results of the Craps tournament.

    In a nutshell: I did not win.

    I was in the second group for the first round. I played $200 Don't Pass with no odds and ONE $200 Don't come with no odds. For the first 25 rolls this worked out great and I was way up. Then a shooter rolled two sevens on a come out roll, then Set the point and rolled the seven. Then the next shooter got lucky and made the point two times, where the seven never showed up for the rest of the 40 rolls. On the last roll, many of the player went ALL IN on the Insides and the shooter on the last roll hit a six. That one hit put many other ahead of me in the tournament, however if the seven rolled I would have easily won that round.

    They had a wild card drawing for the second round, and I did not win that drawing at all. And at the end they had 4 $250 raffles that I did not win.

    The winners, interesting enough, where the local guys who play there frequently.

    My take on this tournament is that skill is not really a factor here, where luck is is. I doubt I will enter such a tournament again.
