I'm curious, how often do you get dirty looks from other players at the table when you start to deviate from basic strategy?

So, I've been playing the BJA app religiously for a while now and have found that I consistently have a lot more winning hands in a cold deck (true -6) because I have the luxury of hitting on higher numbers because there are more low cards in the deck.

Is this a form of deviation?

Hey Colin, I found a new video game (kind of like Grand Theft Auto) where you can count cards to help build your fake money portfolio! It is Pokerstars VR. I play on the Oculus. They have blackjack table games. The only thing is, it only allows for a 1-10 bet spread. For example, you can play at a table that is \$100 min bet, \$1,000 max bet. Also, to count cards , the players a couple seats down, it is hard to see their card, so I actually have to hover over their hand to see it. It is still all good! They play through a 6 deck shoe with about .85 penetration.

I'm a bit confused at when you'd be applying the deviations. Would you only use them for your first decision? For instance, lets say you've got a 7 vs the dealer's 5 and your hit card is a 5 for a total of 12. Assuming the count indicates you should deviate, would you, even with 3 cards?

If you notice another player at the table playing perfect basic strategy and the count is high, would placing a bet on their hand bring more heat?

Hi I’m a recent graduate who just got my first job and moved to Salt Lake City. I’m super close to a casino in Nevada and I’m not into gambling so this attracted me. My casino has a royal bet that gives you 3:1 if you have the same suit card. Is this truly an advantage or would it be better to stick to basic strategy?
