    Switching To Multiple Spots At +3

    Super useful info, thank you guys. Well, if there is a low minimum... maybe it would be best to just play two hands throughout. Then the only major tell is that you up your bet.

    Switching To Multiple Spots At +3

    I'm curious about switching over to playing two or three hands, once the count gets good. I can certainly see why that's a big advantage, but isn't it a tip off that you're counting? Is there anything you say or do as cover in this situation?

    Depositing Cash While Traveling

    Possibly, however, I wouldn't mail a package bulging with the shape of 10k bundles, marked Cash! Do not steal! Surely people send cash disguised in other papers, books, etc, and with the millions of packages flying back and forth daily, it probably goes under the radar.

    Depositing Cash While Traveling

    A lot of people send money Fed Ex. I mean, drug dealers and bookies mostly... but people do it. One time a client sent me 800 bucks cash, next day delivery, had to sign for it. It happens. You don't think Fed Ex would be safe enough? Obviously you would disguise it.

    2 Deck Pitch Game vs. 6 Deck Shoe- question

    The one thing positive I've heard about tribal casinos, is that they sometimes have wacky promotions, like putting several jokers in the deck, and jokers are wild. I think those are only temporary, to get people in the door. Still, if you could exploit that for a weekend or so, you might make...

    2 Deck Pitch Game vs. 6 Deck Shoe- question

    Thank you. I don't get this cut card procedure. The dealer lets you cut the cards yourself with that plastic solid color card. Then, he inserts that into the deck. So how does it matter at all where you cut the cards?

    2 Deck Pitch Game vs. 6 Deck Shoe- question

    I train a lot, and what I've been finding is that 4 deck shoe is the sweet spot for me. I can Wong out if a lot of high cards come out early and it looks like it's going negative for the duration, or just play through at relatively low stakes and wait for the count to change. It seems like it...

    2 Deck Pitch Game vs. 6 Deck Shoe- question

    Wow. Damn, that's complicated. So in most cases, it sounds like it might be better if they use an ASM.

    Depositing Cash While Traveling

    It's just crazy to me, that people have to worry about how to deposit their own money. Well, another thing, how about wrapping it carefully in paper and cloth, and mailing it home? Like to your wife, or girlfriend, or mom. Or even just to your home.

    Depositing Cash While Traveling

    Okay, commercial account, that's a great idea. As long as you're declaring, I think it's essentially a business anyway. You make a good point about a live bank teller.

    Depositing Cash While Traveling

    I have heard a lot of APs talk about how to manage their cash when traveling: some put it in a safe in the vehicle, some fly with it strapped to their bodies, etc. When it comes to transporting your winnings, if they are sizable... would you consider depositing to a bank account via ATM? If...

    Covid Safety In Casinos

    Ha. I'm from The Berkshires. ; ) Hopefully we will see a reliable vaccine soon. Totally agree about taking it seriously.

    Covid Safety In Casinos

    Right! Good points. I was thinking that too; people in casinos may be addictive, less vigilant about their health, and on top of that I assume they take off their masks to drink. Then again, maybe they are super thoughtful. I don't want to pre-judge them too much. But it's never struck me as...

    Thank you for responding. A casino near where I live published their measures to combat risk: HVAC, washing stations, temperature checks upon arrival, everyone wearing masks... etc. It's a pretty good state in this regard, where I live. You still feel it would be too much a risk?
