Sounds more like a territorial issue than one of too much information being discussed publicly.

My two-cents,

No, I simply misread his post. And the TMI information was for the OP who was basically telling exactly what he intended to do at a specific location. If they're viewing that would make it very easy for them to be on the lookout.

Aha... well actually I'd agree with that.

I have seen some wild stuff on the 6:5!

You'll make more per hour with a 1:16 spread on the shoe games there than 1:16 spread the 6:5 single deck game if your only relying on straight counting.

Not true. What are the rules and the pen in the shoe game? In SD, as long as the Pen is 30% or more, you will get a high frequency of favorable counts then in a 6D with 70-75% Pen. All the rules do are change the pivot point in your betting ramp (e.g. in a 6D S17+DAS+LS+RSA, using Zen, you pivot is at TC +1 meaning at TC of +2 you should bet 2 units, ect. In a SD H17 6:5 (rules worse then this particular store), your pivot is +4 meaning you should bet 2 units at +5). And as we all know, pen is more important than rules (Even 6:5 on SD compared to 3:2 on a shoe). Of course what I want to know is, how does the heat in each situation compare to the other.

30% pen and 6/5 on Naturals? Yup, you can't beat that...bet table max every hand!

Dude, you need to learn to read between the lines. I didn't say you can beat a 6/5 game with 30% pen (you need at least 50% pen with a 1-12 spread min and the ability to jump bets at least 4-5X between rounds). What I did say is that you will get a higher frequency of favorable counts because it is a single deck. That doesn't mean they will be as profitable because a SD game is more volatile, now you see it, now you don't. In a shoe game, you have to bet, and bet, and bet, until once out of every 3 or 4 shoes a count develops. But when it does, it lasts.
