spreads / heat / yay
hello mf. big spreads are good. they do attract attention. why do you not want attention? would it harm you to lose access to a particular casino on a particular shift for a limited amount of time? why would it harm you? are you sure it would harm you? are you sure you are playing with an edge?
you've come to the right place to ask questions. you'll get a variety of responses and will learn a lot if you weigh the different points of view and think about why different counters have such different answers to the the same question.
it sounds like you are asking for a specific betting formula. there is no single, perfect betting formula for all counters with all bankrolls in all rule sets with all possible levels of penetration and under all possible heat circumstances. if you are not heat-averse it is often a good idea either to back-count (bet nothing without an edge) or bet infinitesimally when you have no count. i really recommend trying not to lose anything unless you have an edge. save all your losing for positive-EV bets. give the house nothing. challenge them to bar you and laugh when they do. it is a pleasurable experience, the barring. it makes you feel strong, especially when you take it like a man. spread infinitely. that's my $0.02. why should you not? what's the harm?
