Craps 5 Count Pros And Cons

In the 1980s, when the Captain first explained his 5-Count method for selecting shooters to bet on at craps, he stated that the 5-Count would do three things that could help turn a negative-expectation game into a positive expectation game:

1. It would eliminate around 50 percent of the shooters, those who – in the aggregate – would lose you money.
2. It would position you to be in the game when the other 50 percent of the shooters rolled, among whom would be four types of shooters:
A. shooters who would break your heart by sevening out shortly after you put your money at risk

(these formed the majority of post 5-Count shooters)
B. the shooters who through sheer luck were having good rolls
C. shooters who had developed a “rhythmic roll” that was an unconscious controlled dice shot; this through trial and error in the casinos
D. shooters who were conscious rhythmic rollers or, as we now call them, dice controllers who had purposely learned how to flip the game into the positive zone when they rolled the dice

3. The 5-Count can give you far more in comps than your risk warrants and even if you don’t run into “rhythmic rollers” or controlled shooters you might be able to get the monetary edge over the casino by taking comps into consideration.

The Captain’s philosophy, as he articulated it in my books Beat the Craps Out of the Casinos: How to Play Craps and Win!, The Captain’s Craps Revolution and Forever Craps: The Five-Step Advantage Play Method! was that craps could be changed by someone physically altering the probabilities through rhythmic rolling and he discussed why he thought the 5-Count was the best way to locate such shooters.

In my 14 years of playing craps the Captain’s way, I became a true believer in the power of the 5-Count and I have preached the Captain’s philosophy to any craps player who would listen. Despite the fact that my craps books have been the best-selling craps books in the world for the past dozen years, few players have embraced the 5-Count, although among intelligent craps aficionados his concept of controlled shooting has gained many adherents, including those whose exploits in the casinos (such as Sharpshooter, Dominator and other members of the Golden Touch Craps crew) have become the stuff of legends. Indeed, Sharpshooter’s book Get the Edge at Craps: How to Control the Dice! is the definitive theoretical and practical explanation of why controlled shooting works and Sharpshooter is quick to recognize the role of the Captain in bringing the concept of controlled shooting to his attention.
Still, even many experienced controlled shooters eschew the 5-Count in favor of other types of “shooter qualification” concepts, thinking perhaps that any “shooter qualification” method is as good as any other “shooter qualification” method.
