    Camouflage requirements

    In your humble opinions, is consistently playing the side bet and moderately tipping sufficient cover for a counter? Assume 1-5 spread on a 6 deck shoe and 6 hour session. Some muttering of the count aloud may occur. I thank you.

    You're wasting your money. Your spread is tight to begin with. That is your cover. Cover becomes a consideration when you're spreading 20-1 on shoes, not 5-1.

    I slightly disagree. The determination of a counter mostly comes from long hours of playing on that game. Many games should be beaten by a 1-6 spread. If not, then almost not beatable.

    You really need to understand that empirical evidence along these lines is absolutely useless.

    The spread is your friend. Inconsistent play applied inconsistently is also your friend. You can’t hide being a counter. However, a good counter can look reasonably bad. A great counter can look really bad.

    What’s great is that looking real bad utilizing inconsistency applied inconsistently, is that superior skills are masking superior play. QTC as mandated by the FBM ASC Advanced requires an advanced skill set.

    I know nothing about troll. I post here to find a buddy to play with me. I haven't spread enough in blackjack, and that is probably why I haven't earned very much from this game. Whenever I spread 1-15 times in the past, I was kicked out that casino. There was just no way for me to hide my spread. When the count calls for it, I always spread to two hands, with 1-10 spread on each hand. The problem is, no matter what I did, I couldn't make any money but couldn't go broke either. What tricks do you guys use?
