    My last barring came out of nowhere. No scrutiny from anywhere. Was basically min betting a carnival game and actually asked to have the limit LOWERED for other players (ploppies) to join. Then a YEAR and a HALF later, the bastards sent the state police to my house questioning me about collusion. They even agreed with me that they couldn’t see what I was being accused of. Never trust these F’ing casinos.

      Some barrings and back-offs are the result of nothing other than thorough incompetence of casino employees. Obviously, not all casino employees are incompetent, but many are, especially at the lower tier stores. This is largely an artifact of a casino reward/promotion system that encourages action on the part of bosses. A boss who backs off counters/shuffle trackers/hole carders may be acting on nothing more than hunches, but he is rewarded for taking action, however ill-informed. Nothing in many casinos’ tracking systems requires or evaluates the accuracy of a boss’ determination. For example, I was 86’d from one casino having been completely mistaken for someone else who had evidently been 86’d years earlier. There is little one can do about most casino employee incompetence except roll with the punches. One can be philosophical about this too: We take considerable advantage of that incompetence when it occurs in our favor.

        The last part is crucial. I hear a lot of complaining with regard to the incompetence of casino staff in these situations. A friend’s partner was 86’ed a few days ago along with a completely unknown gambler that apparently just got caught in the crossfire. That’s too bad for the gambler, of course, but the inability to effectively pick off plays and deal with APs in an appropriate manner is a major source of value for us. If you can identify these inefficiencies, you can use them to your advantage.
