Hello everyone, first time poster so please take it easy on me. I've recently been "studying" the beginner counting systems and am doing so in an attempt to strengthen my game. I currently play "alot" of bj but use a progression system that works quite nicely for me. However, I am always paranoid that I am going to be backed off or banned. It's NEVER happened yet and I am wondering why, is it because it's OBVIOUS I'm not counting and simply playing progression?
Have any of you ever seen or heard of progression players being backed off?
As for my "act", I always drink a few beers, NEVER watch the cards, making it obvious that I am NOT counting. Should I fear a back off? From what I've read about progression systems, everyone expects them to lose. Quite the contrary, I rarely lose, rarely. I'm not greedy, never take the casino for more than 50X the table minimum (ie, $5 table I shoot for a $250 quick profit then walk away).
Thanks for any input and may I add, I love the zeal you all seem to have for the game and I respect your skills tremendously. I suppose I don't count because it is quite an art, not just a skill.
