Hand Length by Dealer Upcard

Rate this Entry
The questions seem to become more and more odd as strange bonuses and side counts abound. These charts show the percentage of hands that are 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 cards in length, but for each possible dealer upcard. Split hands are counted separately. The sims are for HiLo with full indexes, as that’s more interesting. Six decks, 78% penetration, S17, DAS, one billion rounds each. Obviously, with an upcard of five or six, the player is far more likely to stand pat with two cards. Of course, doubles are more likely, creating three-card hands. I’ll leave analysis to the reader.

As you cannot see 5, 6, and 7 card hands in the above, below is the same data with a logarithmic scale.
