Reading some of the posts in the past it's no wonder many get barred.
I'd rather struggle around from 3-6 hours combined in 2-4 casinos in a day at SD, and pull down $300-500 everyday I play. than risk being too noticed and draw more suspicion toward my play.
$75-150 in each casino in a day does not rock the boat as badly as attention getting thousands made that day.
I play $5-10 dollar tables and have learned the 'trial & error' way to avoid the temperature rising.
Since the beginning of May, playing 3-5 days per week, I have encountered no losses; and have been given generous comps.
And NO, I do not adhere strictly to the count! That is a dead giveaway that will lead to barring even if I only made $50 per casino
