      Ahoj Helgo,

      Zase mimo moje znalosti, ale:

      team wise (myslim ze spravne by melo byt "team-wise") tady znamena casino
      operators, kteri vedi/kteri se dozvedeli o tom/kteri odhalili, ze se nekdo
      spojil do tymu...

      as in "street-wise" atd...

      So it refers to operators who are wise enough to tell when someone teamed up
      to cheat them...

      hope it helps...

      M

        The casino operators were "wise to teams", meaning that they could recognize
        when people were playing as teams, and they were familiar with the teams'
        organizations and strategies.

        This sentence means that...

        - Some players were in the casino working as teams (possibly of card
        counters, etc.).
        - The casino operators were "wise to" (familiar with) the way the teams
        operated, recognized what was happening, and kicked out the BPs (the guys on the
        teams who were betting big).
        - The team's experienced players were conspicuous because they were betting
        large sums.
        - When these BPs were kicked out, the leader of the team was losing all his
        experienced players.
        - The team's inexperienced players were not conspicuous, because they weren't
        betting big money.
        - The casino operators did not notice these less experienced players and did
        not kick them out.
