And? Did all the opportunities dry up? I think you may be misunderstanding what exactly creates profitable HC opportunities in the first place. Hint: it's not whether or not the PB knows that you can beat carny games by seeing the hole card.

I am not against the publishing, but I'll bite, what creates the HC opps?...
... Or do I need to go lurk at The Book sycophant forum for the answer? zg

Things that cause HC opportunities to appear:
- laziness
- poor attention to detail
- career apathy
- misunderstanding of how a hole card is seen

In some cases, a PB will not be able to see the hole card even if a skilled player is playing the game and the PB knows it. Just knowing that a dealer is flashing is not enough to be able to exploit it. If a PB suspects a player of playing a flashing dealer, and he looks for the flash but can't see it...

Things that rarely, if ever, cause HC opportunities to appear:
- PBs not knowing proper strategy for playing HC games (which is the majority of what casino personnel would obtain from reading the book)

Try not to make HC'ing a big deal. People here feel so special that they know secret "classified" information on this subject but it is on a very RARE occasion that you will actually find a dealer who flashes, even for a split second. I don't know much about 3CP, but on the blackjack table, the dealer contacts the card directly from the opening in the shoe most of the time with the middle finger, index finger, and ring finger and slides it out immediately onto the table. This is the way they're trained, and I've only seen one or two dealers ever fail to do it quickly and perfectly, leaving absolutely no chance for you to see their card.

You don't have to build trust or make friends on this forum if you don't want to, but that doesn't mean most, if not all, the people on this forum are bad. Just about everyone is here to help you.

Don't invest too much time into HC'ing - you will be scouring shops across the U.S. looking for sloppy dealers. Concentrate on mastering your CC'ing technique and indices.

Remember that HC'ing wasn't magically invented, people just like you with interest in this advanced technique looked for exploits in sloppy dealing and learned from their experiences. If they learned by themselves, so can you.

Good luck!

We have to respect the individuals that put in the time to figure out new ways of beating games. It is only fair.
Some people just don't understand that, but it's true.
