    What is the most money you've lost to avoid heat?

    Quite a few AP Card Counter people on here have admitted they purposely lost money in Blackjack to look like a Ploppy and avoid heat. What is the most money you have lost in attempts to look like a Ploppy and avoud Heat?

    No AP in their right mind loses money on purpose (i.e., making incorrect plays to lose). Perhaps you're confusing it with leaving a table during a stretch of negative variance and "locking in a loss." There's a big difference.

    Isn't OP referring to a cover play? And haven't AP's noted that they utilize cover plays during heat? ie, not min betting during a bad count, starting off a fresh shoe with a non-min bet, adhering to BS. You could reasonably argue that every time you don't split 10s when the indices call for it, you're purposefully losing money

    Norm, should have taken the trade you offered of your membership for reinstatement of a banned member.

    No the OP was talking about deliberately losing money because of the fact that she has no idea what the meaning of cover play is as related to blackjack.

    Just as you could reasonably argue that you are losing money if you are not allowed to play.

    No, the original question was rather ridiculous because of the wording.

    Could you tell me if my strict adherence to a literal interpretation is correct on this one, are you trying to make a political statement with your choice of a handle?

    There is still plenty of political disagreements out there when the gay movement subject is brought up. Your handle just substantiates the point.
