Gave it a shot last night but had to stop when I turned into the table mentor to 3 novices.... I'm trying to use the chips to count 5s and Aces but they just woudn't stop asking questions. "Should I double, should I split, should I hit," on and on.. It didn't help that the dealer would refer them to me since she didn't want to be responsible for their losses yada yada... It seems simple enough but it was actually pretty tough to do. Kept losing count... I was concentrating so much on counting that I almost hit on 17. Finished up $600 without counting so it was a pretty good night nonetheless. I'll try it again next time.
