Heat can vary by shift, personnel quirks, management memos, etc.



FS - thanks for adding your clarifications!

aceK - I found an undercover video that shows heat and what it's like to get backed off.

https://www.blackjackapprenticeship.com/casino-backoff/

A tiny part of me (very tiny) says "Wow! I got backed off! They recognized me as a card counter!"

A larger part of me says I'll probably wet my pants the first time I get approached!

Enjoy!

thank you for all the help

I am looking into trying to make a go at this in a small way. it is a little bit of an effort, 2 1/2 hr drive to horseshoe southern Indiana or 3 1/2 harrah casino

I do have a replenishing means which would help in continue this endeavor

I am trying to practice as much as I can before making the journey to the casinos

Do they have casino buses where you live? They will sometimes offer bonuses that make the trip worthwhile, as well as eliminating the fatigue that comes with a long drive.
Its not a great idea to drain yourself mentally on a long drive and then sit right down to play.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way

I also practice daily before visiting my favorite casino, Main Street Station in downtown Las Vegas.

Does your practice include "counting down" a deck?
