    Maybe the pit is sloppy...or maybe you are...who knows? Lol.
    If they find you out to be a rat-holer then that is not good. If you swipe green from their table and most other players are only playing red...then pit will notice.
    Your "report" might say one thing.. but the dealers and pit know you are a rat-holer...

    Security does not "come down" to count you down, they simply tell surveillance to rewind the video and count you down. If they suspect you are a counter, then this will be the confirmation and then you will get a visit.
    Luck is nothing more than probability taken personally!

    Often it’s not an unpleasant visit...sometimes it’s actually flattering, like when they say ‘You are too good for us, please play anything else but BJ in this casino” or “we have made a business decision that you are harmful to our business, so kindly play something else”...

    I don't find it flattering. I find it immoral with no sense of fair play. It's their game, their rules, yet if you have the ability to win, you can't play. There are pictures on the walls of slot jackpot winners. Why no pics or table game winners? Why no sign at the entrance, "only losers and idiots welcome"?

    Do supermarkets or department stores bar people who only buy on-sale items?
    Do buffets throw out fat people?

    I did not think of it that way, more like someone walk8ng around not buying anything, popping candy or grapes.

    Making bets within the table limits while playing your hand as you see fit is within the rules. Eating those items in a grocery store before paying isn't.

    Since I'm sure you're all dying to know, I just played a typical session at my local store with just a little cover, 2.5 hours, same time of day, etc. and no heat. The surveillance-guy-turned-dealer was dealing carnival games when I got there, so I think he's legit.

    To welcome me back, they were nice enough to color up $475 into a $500 chip for me too!

    So I think I've kept my game for now, but I'll be using a bit more cover just in case they decide to pay attention again.
