Wonging out without leaving the table!
  • Wonging the process of leaving the table so you don't have to play negative counts. I believe that doing this looks very suspicous and the pit boss take notice of you a lot more easy. One thing that I notice that some people do is to sit out a hand or too when things are going bad. One way to do this is to simple not put out a bet. The cards will get dealt to the other players at the table and you will effectively will have wonged out of the hand without leaving the table. I think that this looks more natural and regular players do it all the time!
  • I disagree. I believe getting up for a "bathroom break" or answering a cell phone call appears more innocent than sitting at the table and selectively not placing a bet for several rounds.

    i believe the cell phone thing if done right is ok. but if done wrong looks patheticaly phony. no pun intended.
  • Forget that you are wonging and worried some pit critter will figure it out for a moment and just think or watch what other players, non counters, do in the casino.
    Some lose 3 hands in a row and leave the table in a flash.
    Some get pissed at another player, the dealer, the shoe or the world in general and just sit there, not playing, while contemplating mass murder or something.
    Some lose a few in a row and declare that they are waiting for the shuffle.
    Some need to go to the restroom.
    Some constantly jump from table to table.
    Some get phone calls while others see people they need to speak too.

    The list of seemingly reasonable reasons and unreasonable ploppy reasons for sitting out or leaving the table is endless. Just mix it up, do not use the same reason all the time and forget about that pit.

    Wonging out draws less attention, in my opinion, than wonging in.
