It happened to me a lot. I frequently gave people wrong signal that I need a friend. But the truth is that most people on Earth are lonely.

Why can't you be a mentor to him?
Are you a Franciscan monk? I think I saw you playing in Wheeling. Do you always wear the brown robe when you play?

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.
Find an intelligent looking blackjack player and point this guy to him. "See that fellow over there. He is one of the best blackjack players I have ever watched play. If I could play like him, I'd be a millionaire. I wonder if he's winning tonight, or just pretending to be an average player? The pros are very cunning!"

It sounds like the genius is at Wheeling a lot. I bet he wears a suit and not a friar's robe when he is there.

Why did you and Aslan single out Wheeling? It is a small casino not worth going.

As in Peter Conway, PC for short. Has anyone on line ever met up with him at the famous "Counters' Table?" Just saying.

I don't have a stalker player, but I have a stalker TCP dealer who's table I have never sat at, yet will always come up and talk to me where ever I may be in the carny pit. It seems he's wise to the play.

Maybe he wants to be your special friend. Are you a good looking specimen of a human being.
