Thanks for the response. To answer your question, "with what?" Here are my thoughts that evoked the question.
I have read in one source to look for tables with happy players and other favorable clues. From the boards it appears most professional players do not play for more than an hour at one casino. I've also been advised that if a count goes to -2, (TC=<-2) to not approach that table again the same day. I am not sure if the latter advice was based on shuffling or shuffle machines. So I mentioned the places I play at use shufflemasters, hoping for some shuffle trackers thoughts on that account. Finally, I'm not sure if the latter advice is any more than superstition, or if it has a solid basis.
Logic seems to agree with your reply, but my gut seems to tell me the other may be better. I didn't learn to count because I rely on my gut, so I thought it best to ask here.
Ibeatyouraces, I give your reply full consideration. . .
Any other opinions out there?
