pit vs eye, instant vs slow
A guy wongs into a shoe with a huge bet and very often he will be met by a pit who tells him (depends on casino and sometimes just the pit person) that their is a limit to a bet for someone entering mid shoe, even though there is no mid shoe rule in this casino. They are aware of backcounting and teams signaling in big players. Action, if taken, must be immediate so it becomes pit responsibility.
The guy who grinds away, playing all but perhaps wonging out of a few bad shoes, never gets the same kind of attention. With the passing of time and his spread, the pit may call the eye or someone in the eye may take it upon themselves and they will evaluate him. Often he may not be even evaluated till they run back his session after he leaves. It is a reason why we say short sessions are best but in comparing both senarios the big difference is the instant heat that wonger gets.
A few years back on a huge count during a shoe at a place where table limits were $3,000 but seldom fielded a bet of over $500, I put out two bets of $400 and a guy comes in on my left and wants to play cash for the table max. Pit comes up and first asks him for a player's card, which he did not have and then tells him that she will not accept a bet higher than $300 from someone entering mid shoe. Guy actually tried to deflect some heat onto me by mentioning that I had $800 on the table but the pit said I had played the whole shoe. The guy left. At the end of that shoe I played and lost the first couple of hands of the next shoe and decided to leave before someone started thinking about my beggining the good shoe with one hand of $25 and ending it with a few rounds of two hands of $400.
He got the instant heat and I figured I was going to get the delayed heat.
