So, am I justified in having a little bit of noobie paranoia, or is this something that pit bosses do now and then? About 2/3 way through the shoe, the PB comes up to the dealer and whispers "Let me know when the shoe is done". Dealer: "Huh?" PB: "Let me know when the shoe is done. I need to count it." At the end of the shoe the PB takes the entire stack of cards and starts counting them. I've never seen this happen before. Is this something they do now and then, or was this a form of 'heat'? I hadn't been spreading my bets at all, really (going between $25-$50, and denominations in between), so my betting shouldn't have raised any suspicions. I did take insurance a couple of times, though (they didn't hit). And overall, I was down for the session. After the dealer said that, I went back to flat-betting $25 and colored up at the end of the shoe. Thoughts?
