    But take a closer look at some often overlooked facts
    First , after the introduction of card counting , the number of people playing has increase dramatically, it has not hurt the casinos , it has actually helped
    in the rise of number of people playing
    the second thing is the fact that DI is discussed not only on this board but on other boards constantly.
    The casinos see people all the time copying what they think DI is all about
    There is nothing discussed on this or any other board that is going to kill any gooses
    gooses will only be killed by a lot of people kicking @$$ in the casinos by the use of DI
    I doubt that there will ever be enough people making a large enough impact on the casinos that they will ever be very concerned
    People in general are going to find that becoming proficient enough at DI to make much of an impact is going
    to require a lot greater investment of TIME , EFFORT and ENERGY than they are willing to invest.
    People go take a class or two find out how difficult it is and bail out
    The really serious ones will have at least one casino grade craps table in their home
    and even they soon fall out
    No this DI thing will never be much of a threat , people aren't going to do THE WORK

    As always when you make a good point, you either get crickets, or a change of subject (lets talk swine!) Then when you answer the side subject, you either get crickets, or a change of subject (lets talk swine!) Then when you answer THAT change of subject, you either get crickets, or a change of subject (lets talk swine!)

    This MO goes for SR, AssHall and TFB.

    Yep, & that is why you see so many tables with Micro fiber & closed cell foam. BOUNCE is a Dice Influencer's nemesis. Gone are the tables of old, Hard felt layouts.

    A big shout out to Frank, Dom, & that fucked up Breaking Vegas series. You can travel 10,000 miles, & you'll never find a Old School table with original felt layout like I HAD on my table. ( Yeah, I decided to upgrade to the bouncy bullshit that are prevalent in most Casinos, nowadays). Why keep playing on equipment that you will NEVER see in the Casinos again?

    They say that Vegas still has a FEW of the Old School tables.......I will certainly be searching for them during my next visit!

    How in the hell can this DeNango talk such trash
    "If you don't Shut the , "F#^*K up I'll put you on ignore"
    And the really pathetic one was Demango again saying , "Hey gargoil let's all ignore James Hall and maybe he'll quit"
    Then to Rick he said , "Rick I gave James Hall ANOTHER CHANCE AND HE WON'T SHUT UP"
    THIS LIPPY WIMPY SUCKER was going to drive me out and what does he do? HE QUITS , what a toughey he turned out to be , gave uo the fight
    bad news toughey , I'm thinking about ignoring you , but then again I don't have to you quit HA HA HA

    Actually meant to quote JH's response to this thread (#82) where he said how many new BJ players came around with the revelation of the benefits of card counting.

    Long ago, I used to play a bit of BJ when at the casino, but with the disadvantageous rule changes in the game several years ago, I wouldn't sit at a BJ table even if the money to play with was given to me. Instead, I would take it to the craps table. ;)

    Not gonna revert back to ANY old post, but here is what G told me..."I end up ahead most of the time from my Vegas trips"!

    NEVER..."I win all of the time"!

    And you think a rise in players means the casinos will tolerate guys that are beating them at card counting? If so, you know absolutely nothing about the casino business
    2 wrongs make a right?

    Table top I ran across a friend of mine from Texas who plays black Jack , we were in a casino , he said you want to see something funny?
    He had me sit at the bar he went to a blackjack table to play , after he bought in 2 suits came up to the table behind him
    after playing maybe 20 or 30 minutes , they tapped his shoulder
    He said , "They will generally give me about a half hour , then they have me leave"
    What they will tolerate depends on the person , how much they win , how large they bet , they will not tolerate somebody just totally ripping them
    He is under some restrictions where he plays and he doesn't go in to just rip them
    He told me , he tries to get in and gone before they know he was there and he never hits them hard enough to hurt
    He doesn't play black jack that much any more , I got him on Craps several years ago

    This makes no sense to me. Card counting involves playing smallish bets as you perform your count, until such time when the count advises you NOW is the time, at which point, having identified your best advantage, you push out a huge bet.

    Times and counts will vary, and the "counter" isn't too difficult to detect.

    Whaaaa?

    There is no casino on this planet...when dealing with a card counter that will say "we'll give you a half hour"....

    Half hour to do what?
    Beat them with card counting?
