    You are right! Many numbers doesn't differ at all.
    The ace of course not.
    A=-.6417 SE=.0025 which means

    68.3% [-.6392 and -.6442]
    95.45% [-.6367 and -.6467]
    99.73% [-.6342 and -.6492]

    I'm a little worried about the ten, probably
    I'm gonna double check it.
    All the sims were runned at the 260 card level.
    That's 260/5.4 = aprox. 49 rounds per shoe.
    I will run the ten without curd card next time,
    but frankly I don't expect any significance
    difference. I can be mistaken regarding this,
    of course!
    SBA allows to resplit 9 hands up a total of 10.
    That's simulates prety well the unlimited rule
    for resplitting any pair and aces. Last time I
    have had 11 pairs was in the 14th Century, if I
    remember well! :-).
    SP3 is a typical American rule, I don't know if
    your CA can be set to accomplish this.

    You don't have the slightest idea how much I
    appreciate your input here!

    of this two BJ monsters. I'm beginning to feel
    like Gary Cooper in High Noon!)

    I'd say you're doing pretty darn well -- just about as well as Gary Cooper did! :-)
