When you say small spread you mean go from betting 10 to 30. Not going from betting 10 to 500 then they say wait a minute hes up to something

if I were to use KO then I shouldn't have to worry about getting heat?

Yes, what I say spread 1-3 I mean, for example, spread \$10-\$30. It would be very difficult to go from betting \$10 to \$500 without raising some eyebrows, assuming that someone in the casino other than you is more or less awake.

You will get heat if they think that you are counting. If you are spreading 1-3 or 1-4 in a shoe game, they will probably not suspect that you are counting. But of course there are no guarantees.

The point is, the more powerful the system is, the less you have to spread to break even. So, as long as you can use it without making mistakes, something more powerful is better. The other nice thing about KO rookie is that, when you get good at it and comfortable with it, you can "graduate" to the full KO system easily. So you have a path to progress through as you get better. A-5 is a bit of a dead end.

Counting the dragon bet is great. The casino actually encourages it!

I'd think looking at other players cards and raising bets on cue would make them suspicious. Then again even if they were suspicious I doubt theyd care if you are only betting the minimum with minor spread
