I was playing BJ, and I think I made a number of mistakes that may make it more likely that I'll be watched in the future there. I'd like input on whether I'm being overly paranoid ...
The scenario (changed a bit to protect the G^Hu^Hi^Hl^Hinncoent)
Played a long time (4 hours)at a usual haunt.
The whole time its crappy shoe after crappy shoe (Counts ranging from -1 to 1 the whole time but no other $5 tables are open. Lines of ploppies wanting to play $5 BJ.).
I bought in for $100, then after losing most of that another $100. making mostly $5 bets with the occasional $10 or $15 bet. Pit boss knows me, stops over from time to time, asks hows its going, my stack running from $50 to $225 most of the night. Its clear he has a good idea how I'm doing at any time. In my favor: I look like a schmuck loser, and they're always buying me dinner or cigerattes or drinks. They're happy to do it cause I lose so much most of the time (think 'rathole'). Anyway, last shoe (its 11pm and I want to go home), and the TC goes +3, +4, +5, +6, +7, and the whole table just leaves when the count goes +3 (YES!). I'm putting out $50 - $75 and making every hand (3 blackjacks, a handful of double downs, and when I get 16 vs dealer 10 he busts twice. I can't loose this shoe and in 15 minutes I pull in $725. I start to leave and PB walks over and sees my stack. Its obvious he's floored w/ my ~ $850 in chips (725 + what I previously had) because 10 minutes ago when he walked over he saw my punny stack. He shakes my hand and I say something like how this win almost makes me even from last month's beating. Luckly the dealer mistakes me for some one else and says to the PB, 'Yeah, I killed him last time' ... but I'm still nervous about any undue attention. This has to look like a win on my chart, and up until now everyone thinks I either lose big or barely break even. Should I be worried? Normally I'm a red chipper who flys way under the radar. I'm usually the guy betting the smallest anyway. I do mix it up occasionaly (Start shoe with bigger bet, and I tip a little more than most folks think a red chipper should. I've only logged 120 hours counting, and my win % is a bit less than 1% at this point (I keep a nice little spreadsheet at home). I've seen strange things before (guy buys in for $20 and parleys most of his wins to a $500 profit in a shoe and then leaves), but this was no accident, I was counting and luck and statistics favored me. I could have lost, but I won this time.
Should I be worried is my question
