I have played BS without counting for many years.
I recenting began counting HiLo using DS's Catch 22.
It seems that nothing draws the anger of my table mates more than when I hit a stiff hand on a negative count against a dealer's small card. Once on a negative count, I hit 12 v 4 and drew a 10, which set off alot of ranting from a very excitable woman at my table. Another time, sitting at 3rd base, with a TC of -2, I hit 13 v 2, and again drew a 10, which attracted alot of angry advice from the "experts" at my table. This also draws the attention of the dealer and the pit.
How do experienced counters handle these situations?
