    Surely you jest !
    In (your) game you are lucky to be playing > 30 cards.
    There is plenty of room for deficit ranks behind the cut card.
    O T O H ~ cards that have been played are known to you.

    These never ending threads are a result of T3 and Flash imposing their will on Hi Opt II. EOR will never change. However, constant change proves historical. Wong Halves and Perfect Insurance is the best way to kee up with it all.

    So you are including 2's / 3's which are diametrically
    different from the 6's and 7's in this hand matchup
    ?

    Grouping the deuce (2) your way is counter-productive.

    Dr. Gordon, the (late) unsung pioneering hero of BJ

    proved that counting the 3 to 6 is NOT optimal at all.

    2 to 5 is optimal; side_counting the middle cards 6-9

    by group or individually is the most powerful way to go.

    I probably said something like that sometimes going to 2 hands makes sense and that only 1 ace remaining (in single deck, I assume) is not the determining factor. The most common reasons are other players at your table when the count is high and playing the final round of the deck/shoe when the count is high. I may have also said that you can get the same EV with less variance or more EV with the same variance when playing 2 hands and that 1 ace remaining has no direct bearing on this.

    The decision is based on your advantage and the other factors mentioned above. Specific rules like No Das and only double on 10,11 are not directly related to the decision.

    If I have an advantage at either of those counts then I would consider playing 2 hands:

    • if there are other players at the table
    • if playing one hand would be the final hand before the shuffle and the dealer won't shuffle immediately if I spread to 2 hands.

    I should also add, perhaps most importantly -- if I can do so without arousing suspicion.
