    Then the problem is the BQE. I hate that road. But, it's no worse than the northern end of the FDR if going to upper Jersey or NY State. The shimmy on some bridges is bad on a bike. Driving faster can help due to the gyroscopic effects. Problem with the Verrazano is the wind shifts.

    Problem with going to AC from NYC is miles and miles of nothing that lulls you to sleep. From Philly, it's also boring -- but not so long.

    "I am one of those who used to play 5 days a week till I lost the local casinos"
    I am just curious why you lost the local casinos. Was it because your play was correct all the time or was it because you bet according to the true count? Looking back, what do you think you should have done to avoid being noticed?

Gorgeous bridge. Nerve racking on a motorcycle.

    I've been playing for years at local casinos and they never barred me and yet I take their money.

    Playing perfect BJ alone is not an issue. They will eventually know you as an advanced player. You need to make them think they have a good reason to keep you as a gambler.

    If you are smart (APs are) then you should be able to figure this one out.

    I like you. You are thinking outside of the box. If you get banned eventually, then be nice about it. Shake the AP-catcher's hands. Don't burn the bridge. There is a way to get unbanned circa 3 years later. You just have to figure out this one too.

    I assume that your local casinos are outside Las Vegas. I found the hard way that it is quite difficult to outsmart surveillance in Vegas. If you have any tip that you don't mind sharing, please write it down as sometimes some players find themselves unwelcome just after less than half an hour of play! I remember one pit boss down there telling me that any player who increases his bet by more than five times the minimum bet he used previously is shown the exit door the Vegas Way!

    Heads up or 1 other max, 6d allows for artistry in execution. Being robotic to count is best way to get the tap.

    You have to think outside of the box but then you listen to GWAE and realize you are not the only one thinking like you and using the same methods.

    Also don't go every stupid week and don't get burned like a moron.

    I am also not counting 12 months out of the year. I take months long breaks and then use my locals to retrain and perfect my game as well as gently pad up the BR thanks to a low RoR strategy before trips.

    The color of the chips between home and away games changes. That too makes a difference.
