Anyone have any thoughts on card counting solo versus in a team with high roller?

It seems like signaling in a high roller gives you an opportunity to make more money without attracting attention for increasing your bets, but at the same time complicates things because more people are involved, any you need to be able to signal/communicate with other players without getting caught.

In my opinion, one should play two hands at the same time.

Been there and done it in the mid to late ‘80’s in AC

Involved with a group of Doug Grant system players - the method was called Player / Spotter and was sanctioned by the DGGC.

The Player / Spotter method was simple and powerful !

One player to one or two spotters.

Spotters were paid at the time approx. $10.- $ 12.- per hour - min 4 hour gig. - tipping by player was optional.

Player and Spotter(s) would meet outside the casino and enter seperately with no outward signs they knew each other.

The spotter would back count usually $25 tables and signal the player with the present count.

Player would approach the table knowing the count and either watch if the hand was in progress or immediately enter the shoe and play the DG system.

At end of the shoe player would depart that table and await another signal from the spotter(s).

Very powerful, totally eliminated making waiting bets while waiting for the shoe to turn positive.

In fact, this style of play was so effective that for a number of years and probably to this date, numerous casinos have placards posted at BJ tables stating either ” No Mid Shoe Entry ” or they will allow mid shoe entry but limit your wager to table minimum until that shoe is over.

Hope that helps !

Another playing method which I did not get involved with was a similar scenario but all members of the team ponied up X amount of $ and shared in the duties of player and spotter and equally shared the bank after the session(s).
