Default Ever have your own stalker at the tables?

I was recently playing and an awful player sat down at my heads-up table. He made some really smart plays like doubling for less ($5 double on a $25 bet) 9 v 7 and he pulled a 2. After he lost, he asked me if that was a good play and I made the mistake of telling him doubling for less is always a bad idea, cuz you're limiting yourself to one card.

After the count went neg, I wonged out and started another fresh shoe at another table, heads up. Guess who comes, too. The casino was unusually empty for the number of tables open, so I did a lot of jumping around. My "partner" followed along each time.

Of course his bad play didn't bother me, but he was as slow as hell, and that did bother me.

Ever experience anything like this? How do you dissuade someone like this from joining your table? This place only had MSE tables.

You could start a conversation on religion with him, and then reveal a need, revealed by God himself, to convert this man to your chosen religion, bet that'll work

Persuade that person to join your cult.

Persuade that person to join your multi-level Ponzi scheme.

Vomit on said person.

Blow smoke in that general direction.

Reveal that you are not wearing any underwear. Don't stop there, proceed to explain why you believe that underwear is unnecessary.

In a very polite tone: "Do you mind if I play heads up?" works for me 95% of the time.

Let's not let paranoia get the best of us.

Hired shills. Don't trust strange women who are trying to get too friendly to play at your table in some places. I suppose men could be untrustworthy as well.

You've had better luck with that than me. I'd say it works about .95% of the time. And then there's the guy who sits down near the end of the shoe when the count is high and asks if you mind if he jumps in. When you ask him if he minds waiting until the next shoe because it's almost done he'll say "Sure, I don't mind waiting"...and then jumps right in anyway!
