    Don will get annoyed since I’m not answering your question directly.

    My thoughts - who cares. You’re calculating true count, which is a ratio of high to low cards. Now, if there is a specific reason, and if you care to let us know what that reason is, might be able to suggest something useful.

    Assuming you want to improve your insurance and playing strategy, break up the Hilo into 2 counts:

    Tens vs 3456....for insurance and strategy purposes...and Ace vs 2 for adding to that count for betting purposes
