Be Careful If You Count Cards

card counting hands Card counting sounds sexy and cool. Maybe you read the story about the MIT kids who took Vegas for millions, or maybe you bought Andy Bloch's DVD on how to count cards. You figure, hey, I'm pretty good at math, and the system doesn't seem that hard to master. Maybe I'll fly down to Vegas and give it a try. Maybe you hit up the local casinos and won $300 counting cards, and now you figure that you'll raise the stakes and put in some more hours, and make even more money.

Sure, all of that sounds great, but you are forgetting one key important fact. Casinos do NOT want you counting cards. In fact, there are many eyeballs out there, watching players, trying to identify potential card counters.

I was recently talking to a friend of mine that told me "I can identify a card counter within 10 minutes of them sitting down next to me at the tables." If my friend can identify them that quickly, what makes you think that a casino employee, trained to identify card counters, won't be able to pick you out of a crowd.

Now, having said that, there is nothing wrong with counting cards. There are just some things that you must be aware of, and certain moves that you must take in order to avoid detection.

1. Never play for too long at one table or at one casino. If you are on the Vegas strip, play for an hour at one table, and then move casinos and play at another casino. If you plop yourself down at play at the same table and same casino for 8 hours straight, you are GOING to be identified, guaranteed.

2. If you feel that there are employees watching you, leave immediately. Human instincts are pretty sharp. If you feel that you are being watched, then immediately get up from the table and leave the casino.

3. If you are identified and asked to leave the casino, don't make a fuss. Just keep your mouth shut, and leave the premises immediately, and move to another casino. Casinos have the right to kick anyone out that they want. If you make a fuss, then they may baN you from entering the casino for a month or maybe even longer.

4. Lastly, make sure that you identify the games that give you the best odds of winning. Some "card counters" play at blackjack games that don't offer odds as favorite as some other blackjack games. I mean, are you kidding? Play at the tables that give you the best chance of winning. That's a given.

Good luck at the tables! If you feel eyes on you, then book it!
