    So with that type of thinking, I assume you would have no problem with any pro card counter making the decision to retire from that profession and then take a job working in casino surveillance somewhere.

    I agree. It's a despicable thing to do.

    HC teams have a history of being nasty, similar to slot teams who spill drinks on people to get them off "their" bank of machines.

    I worked for 8 different employers over the last 37 years before retiring. Employers were in 8 different states. One looks for jobs in fields where they could use their experiences. One looks for better paying but less stressful jobs.

    I dont see why a persons allegiance to AP’s should be greater than the needs of their family. A time comes when an AP might want to settle down in one city and a job in a casino (where else could his past be of help?) is about the only job where his experience helps. Don’t former users of drugs work as undercover cops or counselors?

    "Newer players who are learning the game should follow the words of the above quote. True long term success at blackjack is accomplished through grinding away while blending in like any other guy, only you are always constantly learning. If you are looking for respect in blackjack among your peers you have the wrong idea. What you are earning (kept to yourself) is all the respect that you need."

    Bosox............Lot of truth here. But it does help to network with fellow AP'S to learn and to play. Not just count score from your winnings, though that is what everyone wants eventually. However, I don't know what the value was in burning a dealer and game (just because others were taking advantage of it). I do understand from her blog that she endeared herself to the casino management for awhile but to what end? And I see she hasn't been back as promised to continue discussion on workshop My issue with a lot of so called posting and public knowledge is that it occurs on the free forum portion of this board. Why not join; it's a pittance; and post in the more private section. I guaranty a lot of information wouldn't be as "public" in my opinion...........but that's just two cents and a thought. I sure notice there is not as much discussion on the pay portion of the boards. But still good info. Maybe I'm naive but if you want to share some info that you don't think should be public, make it on the private or pay areas.

    As some have done. You don't think that former professional counters have not started working for casinos? Some of the more famous ones have for sure........Max Rubin, Elliot Jacobsen, etc. But you still can learn from them. Can't begrudge them making money in a capitalistic society when they have the requisite knowledge or connections. Personally, I'm not sure I would do the same thing but I have had a good friend who was a counter that changed professions and worked his way up through the ranks of Vegas casinos. He was a great source of info, also.

    I half to laugh at myself here. I still pay all my bills through the US Mail Service, and I do not purchase anything online. My Verite software was purchased directly from contacting Norm through his site. I asked him about the pay section and he told me himself that it was a little slow anyway. I figured that since I never understood the rules of the board completely I would get in less trouble staying on the free site.

    I agree with this and actually did belong to a private board for at least a decade with ten to twelve players most located on the east coast. One member a very knowledgable man recently passed away his name was Jake Smallwood who I believe lived in Canada at the time. Most everyone got multi barrings and inevitably we more or less all lost contact. Now I just play part-time when I can find the time.

    I can completely understand why this would be done. When the casino realized what was happening, most likely everyone that had been playing that dealer and making lots of money would have been 86'd and not just the sloppy newbies that were too obvious. By having the dealer fix the situation, they saved her job and protected a lot of AP's.
