Its all I can do to add up my own cards and hope I'm making the right Hit/Stand decision.

If I were to notice something seriously wrong, I report it. By that I mean something criminal or suspiciously alarming. I've reported jimmied doors in parking lots, locked animals, etc. Even decades ago when walking to my room thru a parking lot with an unmarked security car, I flashed my room key, unasked, just in case he wondered what three young men were up in the wee hours of the morning.

I've never witnessed anything criminal at a craps table but I've complained about rude behavior: loud talking, calling out numbers instead of letting the Stick call the roll. I make my objection known, once, and that is it. If they let Black Chipper call out numbers after he has rolled the dice ... I cash in and go elsewhere.

A BJ counter? I wouldn't recognize one, but I would no more report him than I would report a female obviously trolling the BJ pit for customers.

It is nice to see well-thought-out answers and experiences in this thread, and not short, critical or sarcastic replies which are often pervasive on these boards.

I would not out the counter because it takes one to know one.

I apologize for my behavior at the tables. Thanks for not outing me.

It takes a counter to know one so you're bringing attention to yourself.

.

Yep...Why bring even more attention to yourself.

If you wanted him to leave just start betting small and eat up all the good count cards, "take the dealers bust cards" Play as slow as possible, light up a stinky cigar, ask him for a loan, claim you have pink eye and the flu

Why not just play a 'smart game'? That guy had all the eyes on him. Shoulda asked him where he was gonna be playin' the next day.

if they're watching him, they might see me at the same table. I have no issue with camo, but when you start abusing other people i get mad . that's simply not acceptable not matter what. the dealer didn't deserve the abuse. and that's coming from someone who's not a fan of the casino.

i wasn't planning on calling over the pit, but simply to let him know that i knew he was making the right play every time. the smart move, which i did, was to let it go. i was just a little steamed on the inside.

Reminds me of a guy I saw at the Mirage years ago. He was playing nickels and spreading to $60. Any time the dealer would show Ace he'd start talking to himself. "Well the last time she had it, so probably doesn't this time. But there ain't many 10s on the table, so yeah I'll take insurance." Same thing with any count dependent plays. But he always made the correct play. After about 90 minutes the pit boss walked over and watched him play several hands. Then, after the dealer busted with something like 4-7-4-8 he asked, "so what's the count". The guy got kind of a puzzled look on his face, then pointed at the dealer's cards and said, "well, 4, 11, 15, . . . she's got 23, right?" The PB chuckled and walked away. He flat bet another 4-5 hands, then looked at his watch and announced his wife was probably drunk by now and left. I'm sure he didn't fool anyone, but his act probably bought him the few minutes he needed to make a graceful exit.
