re:nugget, i'll count the tables...kinda' a ten/non-ten count of hand dealt/shoe dealt tables...next trip downtown.


sharing info within corporate properties: state of the art surveillance departments access ALL [all= everything that a player does with a player's club card or plastic room key...possibly, even a swipe to enter the pool area] electronic information within ALL properties, instantly. my ken is that this level is not in use in boyd group properties. otoh, it is likely that player tracking and player evaluation files are jointly accessible. if you have player's cards at each joint, check the numbers...no magic...mirage resorts group use the same player's club card account numbers for each property. guest tracking is a most valuable tool for targeted marketing. i cannot emphasize sufficiently, the value of the targeted marketing concept, from the casino's perspective.


collateral damage to an advantaged 21 player is that with time, most if not all jointly owned/corporate group properties WILL share info which will include a player advantage tag. as i've noted 'afore, the barracuda will be ensnared in that same net cast to fetch tuna.


since the number of attackable games may reduce and as surveillance department implemented player evaluation procedures will surely improve, absolutely, skilled 21, continued play must include a new level of "act". for the counter, this is where the future of 21 play may rest, not further hair splitting to attain another one hundreth percent by switching count systems. other avenues to win, such as shuffle tracking and key card location play, will remain as shuffle procedures permit.
