    Ian Anderson has lots of good information on how to create an act. Eye contact, making the pit my "friends", has gone a long long way.

    It is absolutely paramount to effectively conceal your spread. How you manage that process requires great creativity and resolve.

    Would you recommend this over Wong's Blackjack Secrets?

    It must be incredibly difficult though no? I mean, if the count dictates jumping your bet up and down multiple buckets it must be tough for a player not to stand out massively.

    NB10 - the best way to disguise your play is don't give them sufficient information. Keep your sessions short. 3 shoes or less on a 6-8D game. On DD, only show your max bet once, then leave. Yes, this is problematic if you are playing somewhere where there aren't many casinos. That's the nature of the beast.

    Many of the books, such as Ian Anderson's, are out of date. They were written in a time when game conditions were much better and you could afford to give up a little EV with cover play. Also, he was playing big money, which is another way you could afford cover.

    If you listened to this week's GWAE, a $1000/hour play was discussed. The player tipped hundreds. You can't do that at regular BJ at the red or green chip level.

    Hypercube responded with:

    if I have max bet out and i want to split 10s v 4,5,6 i take out my double sided tail coin out and say heads i stand tails I split!! if its a low count i use my double sided head coin!

    NB10, do not listen to Hypercube, he is just a troll.
