Or slug tracking. I was at the casino and got my clock cleaned with my top bets out, the count was sky high by high I mean like Whitney on crack. The rc was +30 in a 6 deck game and some cards came out before the shuffle card but they were all clumped together. I kept getting bad cards and at the shuffle the count was very high, tc 10+. Anyway, I watch the cards and they went to the top so instead of cutting the bottom thin and waiting i tried to cut the top thin but the dealer said cut at least 1 deck where I put it I don't remember. Anyway, later(next shoe or the shoe after that I saw a bunch of high cards come out at the start so i wonging out and waited. The next shoe I cut the cards to the top even though they split the discards and top bottom, middle them. It was on the top so but I can do it from the discards, anyway I was scared to bet big from the top cause my trip br was down and wasn't sure if I could cutoff/slug track but the count kept going down shoe after shoe-10 or more in the first 2 decks so finally i had some balls and got my money back+ a few units but they were greenchips! The limits were higher because of New Years but it wasn't that crowded. I found a dealer giving good pen and he was new which makes me nervous because sometimes when i count i want the dealer to tell me what my hand is cause i am concentrating on keeping the tc, rc, estimation the decks and what the proper play is. Same goes w/ payout errors but will try to figure it out and keep my count in the future. I hate when they pay you in red and green, wtf $400 why pay me in red and green? And I have caught a dealer at the same casino shorting me and I yelled to the floor while I was coloring out when I thought he shorted me before that. Oh yeah, when are u supposed to wong out when you cutoff track and are you supposed to play 2 hands? Are there indices for cutoff/slug tracking and how much does it help your ev?
