# Thread: 21forme: Question for Don re results calc.

1. ## 21forme: Question for Don re results calc.

Don,
Assuming I'm playing a standard AC game (8D, S17, no surr, etc.) using HiLo count, I18, spreading 1:10, with max bet at +4 and wonging out at -1. How would I calculate the likelihood of being in +EV territory for a given number of hours of play? Thanks.

Optimally, or with some kind of rational pattern?

Not sure I understand what you mean by "being in positive EV territory." Are you asking what the likelihood is that you'll be winning money after a certain number of hours of play, or are you asking what percentage of an hour you spend with positive EV, on average?

Optimally.

I'm looking for the likelihood of having won money after x number of hours of play. Thanks.

That's what I thought. Easier to express that as "the probability of being ahead after x hours of play." Table 2.2 of BJA3, p. 21, gives some representative numbers.

Do you know your hourly e.v. and s.d? If so, the answer is straightforward. If not, I can probably get the values for you.

DO you have BJA3? If so, see pp. 19-21, especially Table 2.2, on p. 21. If not, write back, and I can walk you through hourly e.v., s.d. and the method needed to find your answer.

Does a bear go poo-poo in the woods? :.) Of course, I do.

Table 2.2 gives me what I need to know. Thanks!

LOL! Then, you have to know how to use it as a reference tool! :-)
