How to WIin
Of course you must hide your ability. Do not look like you are counting cards. Do not look like you are trying to recall a number from a table. Do not carry any written tables with you. In some jurisdictions, most notably Nevada, you may be barred from play if you are identified as a proficient card counter. Elsewhere you might find the shuffle point moved up on you. Bet size makes little difference. A dollar bettor who is recognized as a card counter will be subjected to countermeasures, while the careful $100 bettor can continue to play indefinitely.

Keep the dealers and pit bosses ignorant of your ability and they will be happy. Never, never let on that you are playing any sort of a winning system. You will be asked in a conversational way if you count cards or ha-,'c read any websites on Online Blackjack Games. Do not admit to anyone that you are counting cards. (You might pretend that you think counting means adding the indexes to find the hand total.) Do not admit to having understood any website on Online Blackjack Games. You can act stupid, lucky, unlucky, drunk, sleepy, or whatever, but do not act like you know that you are playing a winning system or you will find the welcome mat withdrawn.

Casino personnel notice small bettors who are big winners and big bettors whether they win or lose. This exposure is unavoidable but relatively harmless because many gamblers bet big and many gamblers have winning streaks. Casino owners who are inhospitable to all winners and big bettors lose more by turning away gamblers than they gain by turning away professional black-jack players.

Except for winning more often than losing, you must look like a gambler if you want to preserve your potential for income from playing Online Blackjack Games. A gambler who plays Online Blackjack Games daily for week after week eventually runs out of money. If you play daily in the same casino for week after week, you will eventually lose your credibility in that casino. If you want to play fifteen hours per month in one casino, it will look more natural to cram all of those hours into a two-day period than to play thirty minutes every day for thirty consecutive days. Try to spread your playing among all three shifts - dealers put in eight hours a day just like other working people.

Now's Your Bankroll?
In general, the better you play, the smaller the bankroll you need. For most games, authorities recommend a bankroll of somewhere around 300-400 big bets for winning players. Your bankroll needs to be larger for Seven-card stud than for hold'em because seven stud has more betting rounds and more situations wherein "chasing" is correct. This leads to larger fluctuations.
