    Blackjack Combinatorial Analyzer

    I have just used the MGP's Blackjack Combinatorial Analyzer to analyze the blackjack with rules :-

    1)6 Decks,
    2)S17,
    3)DAS,
    4)Double on any 2 cards,
    5)Aces split to max 2 hands,
    6)Other pair may resplit to maximum 4 hands,
    7)Early Surrender Vs 10,
    8)BJ pay 3 to 2,
    9)No Peek(but only one original bet + all busted bets lost i.e BB +1 rule). BB+1 refers to an rule, in which the dealer NO peeks for BJ and the player will lose all busted bets, plus one unit, if the dealer gets a blackjack.

    I am happy with the generated basic strategy and the calculated expected value is -0.168%. However, this analyzer didn't compute the number of combinations/outcomes for each payoff i.e +8, +7, +6, +5, +4, +3, +2, +1.5, +1, 0, -0.5, -1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6, -7, -8.

    Instead of just generate the expected value, anyone have the program to generate the number of combinations for each payoff ?
    (something similar to the first table shown in : http://wizardofodds.com/games/blackjack/appendix/4/)

    My CA will give you the probability of each payoff but the not the number of combinations. http://code.google.com/p/blackjack-c...rial-analyzer/

    Your analyzer only give the probability of each payoff of a specific hand, for example 9,9 vs 6.

    What I am looking for is the probability of each payoff of overall bj game like the first table shown in : http://wizardofodds.com/games/blackjack/appendix/4/), from +8 units to -8 units !
