    Penetration would also affect this, particularly with an unbalanced count.

    Yes.
    And it's exactly like 12vs4

    In Modern Blackjack:
    There is one variation for eight decks. We remove the 12v4 variation and just use Basic Strategy for this play. It turns out that with eight decks, that variation does not work well with REKO.
    As you do not treat H17/8 decks it is normal that you do not talk about it.

    REKO is a compromise strategy. REKO-F goes into more detail. Frankly, 8D H17 is a seriously poor game without some other gain.

    Yes, but where I play it's only H17 with 8 decks or S17 with 6 decks . That's why I made my H17 comparison with 8 decks.
    And an easy wonging compensates.

    REKO-F is still a compromise and I would have to learn 2 sets of indices.
    I stay with ReKo with some improvements.
