    I don’t believe a difference of 6-8-10 seconds matters too much.
    I haven’t tried any level 2 counting system. I am only focusing on Hilo.

    I don't know of anyone called Midwest Player. What are you referring to when you say "it is just a private joke..."?

    Skelly, Midwest Player is a veteran member of the site who has posted here for many years. Regarding the joke which was directed at him is that sometimes he is overly conservative financially regarding his expenditures related to blackjack knowledge. You made me think of him when you wrote in post #132:

    "I haven't read his book yet - partially because I'm still absorbing the books I already own, and because I'm cheap as a card counter and won't buy it until the price drops or I can get it used/free."

    That above quote describes MWP perfectly. He has waited now at least ten years to purchase Don S third book which I consider to be penny wise and pound foolish. Now since you brought it up again I have no idea if you are an active player or not, but, if you are I would re-think about your above quote. Nothing personal to you. MWP and I have argued about politics at times.

    You clarified yourself very well while I was confused by what you said earlier. Clearly you have an impression about everybody’s play levels and skills. Some people may be skilled but would never risk big gambling, while others may have won millions from blackjack. My impression is that Freightman is a high roller here. Is this impression correct? Politically I feel you are pro conservative, is this correct?

    I received a lot of dislikes but I really want likes. What is the problem other than politics?

    For this site and on most all sites yes Freightman is considered a high roller, although that term is very subjective. However, I think that the freighter gaming career is winding down considerably now, as he is more consumed with seeing family which is smart. Speaking of freighter, I have been a little worried about him and if there are health concerns affecting him. He has not been around the site for a while now. I hope you are okay Freightman.

    Freightman is fine. He told me he will post soon as to why he has been absent.
