With so much math to remember when it comes to blackjack card counting, the last thing that people want to worry about is how they're dressed. But as many blackjack players know, casinos are very good at catching successful card counters, which makes the clothes aspect that much more important. Keeping this in mind, let's take a quick look at how you should dress when card counting in casinos.
The last thing you want to do is give off any kind of cue that you're a good blackjack player. In fact, you want to look about as countryish and unassuming as possible when stepping into a casino. Now this isn't to say you should overdo it with a straw hat and a corncob pipe; however, it's always a good idea to look like you're from out of town.
For example, if you're card counting in Las Vegas, the tourist look is always popular. The best way to pull this off is by getting a composite of the average tourist in one of these cities, then dress accordingly. Name brand clothes, moderately-priced shoes, and few accessories are all good ways to blend in with the crowd, rather than stand out. In short, just remember conformity, conformity.
How to Act
Moving past the dress, one more thing you should do to sell your unassuming blackjack image involves behavior. The idea here is to act like you're just one lucky person who's on a hot streak. Now don't start screaming and going crazy after every hand; but act slightly excited and jubilant when you do go on a good run. Also make sure to throw out a cliche or two about how lucky you're feeling when spreading bets. With some practice and observations of other touristy players, you have a good chance at card counting without being thrown out.
