Who, I believe, advocated wandering around the pit randomly opting to play at tables in an apparently impulsive manner that just happened to be in synch with the deck's count. This was as team play started to take off and often counters were hired to simply count and make "grinding" bets irrespective of the count. It was the random better who was being signaled Hi Here or Low Here and made choices that way.

This meant the Dealers did not see all that much bet variation since it was the wandering impulsive player making the large bets.

Leaving a negative count in blackjack. The opposite applies for wonging in.
