    This is sort of true for Basic Strategy which is most effective at a TC near zero, but the opposite is true for card counting. As Three said, the premise of card counting is to track the non-homogeneity of the deck. Counting a string of low cards can indicate that a section of the pack with a high density of high cards may be upcoming.* So you want, rather require, different characteristics in different sections of the pack for card counting to work. I don't use the term "clumping" for this condition. This is simply the frequent result of good old hand shuffling.
