    CV uses the indices in Stanford's books. However, Stanford made a large change to the negative indices in '94 and has made other minor changes from time to time in new printings.

    I don't buy every printing. I don't think I've changed a Wong index in the last decade or so. Oddly, I think the AOII numbers are in advance of the book. Bryce would make occasional changes in new printings and e-mail them to me. The last one he e-mailed was before the next printing, and I don't think they bothered to make the change.

    NORM! You are wrong. On the software! Some numbers are off by 1! I'm looking at the tables pg 46 table 9 and pg 48 table 10 OF professional Blackjack.The numbers in CV are slight ly different than on pg 46-48!!

    For example! No indexes for late surrender 17vA in book, but Casino veritte says to surrender. I think Verite is correct on 17vA though for H17 as I believe that's the correct play! Why does PBJ not have surrender index for 17vA??!

    I never play H17 but if memory serves 17vA is a BS surrender.

    Yes, indices are departures from BS. If there is no index you use BS.

    The index is a reverse one. You surrender if the TC is < +2. So, yes, that is BS, but no, that doesn't mean that there shouldn't be an index for the play.

    As I said, the indices come from the book. But, the indices in the book vary by edition. In particular, he changed all the negative indices by 1 in 1994.
