    I hope you are saying this in jest or metaphorphically or else how does the casino or anyone else force a criminal record on you?

    Smallcap is referring to playing under alias' in which case they will try to charge you with identify fraud. This could im theory happen even if you use a player card you picked up in the casino. Just never do it. Play in ur real name or be a refusal.

    As a professional advantage player you not only need to calculate the odds of the game but also need to calculate "people" (e.g. Casinos). You need to determine what type of enemy the casinos are and develop a plan to beat them. I learn that through life experience dealing with some uncompromising and intimidating people.

    Opponent in this case is the casino.

    The more you play. The more you become known. No matter what edge you are using. Burnout becomes a problem.

    Absolutely. Lots of bored donks. You pay the rake when you buy upfront.

    Card counting still works. It's not going to be a life. You can actually make more money Ubering, especially these days.

    Casino music, the noise, the ploppies, the snarky dealer, the drive to the casino... That'll burn you out.

    I only still count a few hours a month, because it's an itch I still like to scratch and overall have been profitable.
