    Question about composition dependent combinatorial analyzer(bjstrat)

    I was playing around with with the bjstrat cdca program and had a question someone mat be able to answer for me. It shows the house edge of the 6 deck H17,DAS, DOA, LS game at .5477% which is about what I figure it to be but when I leave the deck composition exactly as it is off the top of the shoe and take away one of each card, the house edge lowers and by the time I take it down to 5 decks, it shows that the player has almost a 1% advantage with off the top composition and one deck depleted. Then when I deplete 3 of the 6 decks it goes back to showing a .4423 house edge again.....of course it shows all different levels of advantage along the way with exact off the top deck composition at different levels of penetration. I have heard of depth charging in GOOD single deck games but how can a 6 deck shoe with exactly even distribution be shown to have such widely varying levels of advantage? Any help is appreciated in this quandry.

    First thing that comes to mind...

    When you remove one of each card, are you remembering to take away four Ts? (T = T,J,Q,K)
