    You set it according to how you tend to actually play.

    Ask Norm or other sim experts your sim questions. You should go to the best for answers and when it comes to sims there are a lot of people that are better to ask than me. I understand your system and that you exclusively play single deck games and know you will be surprised at how much you are under betting and how many strong opportunities you didn't make the most of. Investing in Norm's software should reap huge rewards for you. Your volatility may go up but your profits will go up even more.

    For example there must be at least 8 of the 52 cards played for the above to be true. That is a minimum TC of +9.45 if there were no other cards seen in SD. You will get that big bet out more frequently after using the software. Most people max bet at TC +4 or +5 using a level 1 count. The software will let you determine what is best for your count and your game rules and pen.

    I will assume you are getting at least a half deck pen which would yield a TC +8 or more.

    Enjoy fine tuning your game.

    Up to you. Full-deck is fine for shoes. Qtr-deck for SD.

    Up to you.

    This is extremely rare.

    RC divided by Decks remaining.

    You're going the wrong way with it. If 26 cards are played then that means 1/2 deck is remaining. So 8 divided by .5 would be 16. 1 deck remaining is the point where the running count and true count are the same. Anything less than 1 deck remaining and the true count is always going to be higher than the running count.

    So for single deck you just take the decks remaining, invert, and multiply. So 3/4 decks remaining (13 cards played) you would take the RC *4 and then divide that by 3. Example, with a RC of 8 you take 8*4 which is 32 and then divide it by 3 for 10.66 TC.

    1/2 deck is obviously easy as you just take the RC*2. Same with 1/4 deck remaining, RC*4

    Playing single deck the TC will always exceed the RC. The less cards remaining, the higher the TC is going to be.

    3/4 deck remaining = RC*4/3
    1/2 deck remaining = RC*2
    1/4 deck remaining = RC*4

    Someone else can touch up on optimum betting better than I can but most people have their max bet out around TC 3 or 4 which is much much earlier than you have been used to, if I remember correctly.
