Re: another Q from the flipside

Using a betting progression while counting can be a good way to camouflage your style of play, however, where you run into problems is the threat to your bankroll. It sounds like you may be seriously over-betting your bankroll at times.

In any case, if your big bets are correlating close enough with your high counts you may have a winning system. The key is to not allow yourself to be placing big bets in low or negative counts. If you are doing this it may be great camouflage but it eventually eats into the profit line.

Sounds like your friend is a loser at this game and he doesn't take card counting too seriously. You are correct, you should always* play the figures.... as you say.

* Always may be too harse a word. There are valid reasons to do just about anything at the table. Just remember that every time you deviate from perfect play it eats into your profit line. You have to balance perfect play and the need for camouflage at times. Play too perfectly and they may kick you out. Play too wildly for camouflage's sake and you will end up a loser for sure!
