There is always some math to look at. What are the rules? Are the payoffs variable and what are they? In other words, you may not need to win 50% + of the hands to make money off of the side bet. ...

Ah, I'm not considering any kind of doubling situation, but I think you answered my question, thank you. Under only extreme situations would the true count be high enough to justify betting on a...

I certainly hope you’re not considering a 6 v 4 double. You’re super max bet is out and the variance would be huge. Here’s an analogy. You will never win 50% of hands regardless of true count (I...

Thank you Don, Meistro123 and Norm for responding! I now know that a true +five does not break 50 percent in this scenario. Does anyone by chance know what would get above the 50 percent mark? Say...

None of the links above answers the OP's question. He doesn't want to know the dealer's bust rate overall, for all upcards, by TC; he wants to know the bust rate specifically of a 4, 5, and 6, as...

Thanks for responding Norm. That makes sense. The scenario is two players, H17, DOA, DAS, no ace re-splitting, late surrender.

I know that a 4 through 6 upcard usually has a 40-42 percent chance of busting. Using High-Low as a reference, does anyone know at what true count a 4,5 & 6 upcard has a greater than 50 percent...

The first advantage should appear at -3 (which is equivalent to a TC = +1 in a balanced system). Not only do you have to start the IRC at -24, but you also need to adjust your indices to use the...

Hello; that got me thinking; had not paid any attention to true-counting unbalanced counts before. I re-ran the sim using true counts from the start rather than just converting them for the graph;...

Well, between Hi-Lo and Halves you have a much less stressful alternative than Halves and more powerful: CAC2 ;-) In theory, if there were always a table with a dealer ready to deal and with...

Thanks Cacarulo! I simmed with the more practical hi-low full indices. I have used halves in the past, but find my brain is fried relatively quickly. I also didn't mention that this place deals very...

At the risk of sounding gauche by using a witticism as a segue, I wouldn't bet on it. Advantage play is an activity much closer to investing than to gambling. The former requires discipline, nerves...
