The other day I noticed a fellow player who like myself was up quite a bit, acted so obvoius as a purist counter because when the pitboss put a new fresh deck out on the SD game he immediately left.
Now I don't know how the rest of you re-act on this tactic used by the casinos, but I purposely stay, and find it more positive to hide the fact I'm counting by saying something like: "Boy, that last deck wasn't all that great, now we are going to really be lucky!"
In past postings, many of your comments seemed to say many here didn't realize the casinos think new cards will turn the tide of the cards.
Of course, I personally think this is a technique left over from about 10 years ago before the electronic ACE FINDER was implemented. Rather when counters could successfully cut to the aces or tens.
In the forum's oppinion, to not be labeled as a counter, should the winning player have stayed at least a few hands?
