If counting is legal then why can't you record the played cards on a machine or computer program? You're saying it's legal to count in your head but not on a machine?

For the same reason you can't bring a machine in to calculate the speed and rotation of a Roulette wheel and ball.

For the same reason you can't use a cell phone while at the table.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

You cant use a device or machine on any game. And no, players dont track cards in baccarat, they track trends. As far as I am concerned, you should be able to keep track of cards on paper, etc, just as the casinos should be able to "not serve" you and ask you to leave.



Surely you can use a calculator to keep the count. Why try to keep it in your head? Counting is legal, right? Pretty dumb to try to remember it.

How silly at a BJ table! So, just keep a note pad in front of you and write down each card that appears. Then adjust your count while waiting for the next hand. Don't tell me a pencil is a machine.

They provide pads and pencils at the Baccarat table, and it totally slows the game down. But everyone takes notes, and the casino believes there is no player advantage. So they accept the slow play, and encourage note taking.

At BJ, there IS a player advantage, not to mention that they don't want to slow the game down, so you can't even take notes.

At BJ, if you can't count in your head, you can't count period.

Despite all the BS you guys are spouting, counting is NOT ALLOWED at BJ. Hence, you cannot use pencil and paper. If they have reason to believe you are counting in your head, then you are NOT ALLOWED to play. So why not play something where you don't have to cheat? VP at some places?

You've never played blackjack in Atlantic City, have you? I'm going to leave it at that.
