If the goal is to get the single most efficient TC index, my inclination to do this is to use a mid-shoe TC calculation as the index approximation. I wouldn't know the accuracy of this. I guess we'll...

The online version is old. The print book contains surrender. Don't remember which rules.

Thanks so much Norm. This is amazing detail!! Just one issue - what about Surrender? I would love to know the proper Surrender strategy. How about 6d, H17, DAS, and of course, ls? Thanks...

New to here and in search of advice. I recently decided on trying to build up a small bankroll to eventually make this a side career, although I’ve been practicing since my college days 14 years ago....

You say "deposit bonus". A deposit bonus is by definition given upfront for a minimum deposit. You haven't said what the minimum deposit is. This changes the optimal strategy quite a bit. Please...

Norm replied to a thread CV Index in Software
Well, the point was, if you only want to learn one set of indices and play a mixture of rules evenly, S17 tables are better than the H17 tables and the non-DAS tables are better than the DAS tables....

MJ1 replied to a thread CV Index in Software
Wasn't the entire point of that study to show that it is okay to use a S17 strategy for a H17 game? If you look at the chart on the bottom, there is little difference between the green and red...

It's not always an all-or-nothing proposition. Would you be comfortable losing nine of the 10 hands for an \$800 loss? Eight of the 10, for -\$600? Don

Hmm. I think it’s not so much how valuable your time is, but how comfortable you are losing \$1000. Personally, I’m not comfortable with a 50% chance of losing \$1000, so I would not make the \$1000...

Interesting question. The optimal answer is to hit. Change the question to an actual situation I know of - player saw the next card was a 4 and doubled his hard 17. It depends on your goals. I’ll...

Hmm. I usually end up playing with 2 or 3 other people at the table. I just assumed I was playing 50 hands an hour, but I never actually kept track. I guess I was pretty close (based on this...

Not withstanding execution of some revenue maximizing plays not necessarily leading to a “one and done”, other very interesting points are evident. A “standard” approach to question answering is...

Is there any literature about what to do if I catch a glimpse of the dealer’s hole card? For example if I have 19, the dealer shows a 10 and his hole card is 10, should I actually hit my 19? If...

It's rude to dispute a well-respected math wiz off the cuff and without any proof. How do you come up with your conclusions that it's "too small"? Show your work! BTW, you do realize that for an...

Hi Dog Hand, I have carefully learned into your CVData simulation results but found a couple of problems: #1. In your second chart, your bust rate when the dealer shows an Ace upcard is about...

Well, after thinking about it a little more and based on what we discussed yesterday, I have modified my code and now I can tell you that I am 100% confident in the solution. On the other hand, I...
