Pssst…! Wanna know a secret?
How about the secrets of clentching the cube?
Your cube clentching procedure should start as soon as the stickman begins to push the cube toward you. In order to produce the specified results, you need to offer the cube in a certain manner so one of these leave the hands properly and stay together.
Wanna know the secrets that cube pros use to grip the cube more efficiently?
Let’s find out!
First, just look at the cube and notice which numbers are facing up. Then imagine, mentally, exactly what to do to the cube to turn them into the position you want them to be.
If you are tipping the dealers, you can ask if they will return them to you “all sixes, inches or some other easy to adjust position. You should buy a pair of cube (regulation size) and practice with them at home, so you can set them (after watching their return from the stickman) in about two seconds, so you don’t hold up the game. Most boxmen will complain if your set takes longer and you really want to have the dealers on your side and not fighting you every inch of the way.
When the current player with the dice sevens out you should start watching what the stickman does. He will return the used cube to the bowl and choose 5 cube and push all of them toward you. If, for example, you are looking for a hard way set, you should look for two cube with 2, 4 or 6 facing up so you can set them easier. Of course, after you establish a point you will have only one pair returned each time so you need to set them even quicker. Elderwood Academy
One easy method to set the cube quickly is to remember that opposite sides add up to seven. So if they are returned to you with 1’s and 2’s showing, you know that 6’s and 5’s are on their opposite sides. You also need to make sure use one hand only, and if your other hand even remotely hovers near the cube you will really invite heat from the boxman, and he could even take the cube away if he thinks you’ve carressed them with both hands.
Once you can flip the cube quickly, you are ready to grip the cube properly in a firm manner to insure that they travel together in parallel paths, at the same time.
In order for this to occur, your finger pressure must be equalized all over so the force is symmetrical. Depending on the size of your hands (and whether you are male or female) your grip might be different than my very own, or another shooter’s. There are many grips and each has a name, like “3 finger top, inches “4 finger diagonal, inches “5 finger top, inches and several others. My own personal favorite is called the “3 finger front” grip.
After the cube are set, you place your 2nd, final and final hands along the high shape of the front cube, and your thumb on the high shape in between the two back sides. Your pinky is tucked away and not used. You would make sure the cube are perfectly symmetrical and then chuck them with a slight back spin, so one of these land and bounce once around the pass line and, still rotating, just glimpse off the rubber backboard and come to rest the way you want them to.
Clentching, setting and throwing takes quite a bit of practice, and you need to practice before you play, perhaps on a low limit table or even in your hotel room. But it’s worth it! Once you learn how, it becomes a real skill that you’re going to always use whenever you play!
