For those of you who travel with your trip bankroll on flights. How do you transport your money? Travelers checks? Cash? I will have quite a bit of money, over 15k, not sure If I want to travel with that much cash.

Hello All,

I'ts been awhile since I last posted on here. I had the "Brand New Counter - $40,000 bankroll - What should be my bet spread and at what table minimum?" - thread. I got a lot of great advice from other members here, which I thank once again.

So, I'm starting to play blackjack again after about a 6 month break. I am planning a trip out to vegas to explore the games out there. (No good for me at A.C. any longer - after all in the same 2 week period, got 2 comp accounts frozen, and over half the casino's are mid shoe shuffling on me, placing my own table limit signs on the felt (management decision), and cutting the shoes at 50%.

I will be doing my own research on games out there, but thought somebody might point me in the right direction, or suggest some good games, with good rules on the green chip level, double decks and 6 decks preferred.

Thanks All.




That's known as using their brain. I believe card counters brag about doing same. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to get other BJ AP's opinions on this. I have no problem spreading 1-6 on a $50 min double deck game. But, what about spreading 1-12 on a double deck $25 min game. The hourly expected value is almost the same, but you decrease your ROR by about 50-60%.

Do you think spreading 1-12 on a double deck $25 min is pushing it, and drawing too much unwanted attention?

Thanks.

In regards to counting and cover, how do you guys increase/decrease your wager on a winning hand? Im assuming losing a hand there shouldn't be as much difficulty since no chips are currently in the betting spot. Say you want to decrease your wager do you take all the chips, both the chips you bet and the chips you won, then put out a bet less than you had before? Say you want to increase your wager do you only increase it up to the amount you won or do you collect all the chips and then put out more chips?

That Will easily fit in your front pockets and wallet .

5k+ wallet.

Make 2 stacks of 5k. Add a few $1 bills to the outside, fold in half, add a rubber band.

Before you go through security quickly and inconspicuously put it in your carry on. After you get through security take it out of your carry on and put it back in your pockets. A mans hand can palm and hide most, if not all 5k stack. 1 quick smooth motion, no one will notice.
♪♪Now you swear and kick and beg us That you're not a gamblin' man Then you find you're back in Vegas With a handle in your hand♪♪ Your black cards can make you money So you hide them when you're able In the land of casinos and money You must put them on the table♪♪ You go back Jack do it again roulette wheels turinin' 'round and 'round♪♪ You go back Jack do it again♪♪

I traveled with $15k+ at least a dozen times. Never had any problem. Besides, three stacks of $5k is pretty thin.

If a player goes through that exercise more than once or twice, it would seem a lot easier -- and less stressful -- to establish a financial relationship with an institution either back home or at the destination. Especially seeing as how that level might provoke intrusive questions.

Banks do not like people who make frequent cash withdrawals and deposits of substantial size. There are several law abiding professional players who have been asked to bank elsewhere by banks for this habit. For some reason banks hate cash, and financial institutions aren't toys. At the least doing so would likely rack up SAR'S

Carrying money through an airport shouldnt be an issue domestically. I've put 10-30k through several times. Straight through carry on, carried it through the scanner in my hands, or placed in a self addressed stamped envelope/package( at this point it would be considered federal property)
