    Your concept of QTC in your regaled FBM ASC Advanced might help with the issue of varying index with the shoe depth
    In many parts of the shoe. Whereas indices are created in a , let’s say, billion card sim analyzing deviations per true count bucket. Just imagine index changes per true count bucket when taking QTC into account.

    Indices are created in separate sims per index and portion of the shoe can be set as an option.

    Understood on both counts. However does the sim not calculate ALL remaining remain8ng card combinations within the index parameter thereby creating the index - by inference those card combos with a higher QTC achieving a higher expected value than those with lower QTC.

    Seems to be a concept not easily grasped.

    It is neither necessary nor possible to sim all remaining card combinations with current technology when using card counting. I've thought about using qubits in future; but it doesn't apply well, at least for the next decade or so. Exascale is less interesting, as it doesn't apply even if it weren't absurdly expensive as it's aimed more toward massive, parallel floating point calculation, in particular add-multiply.

    CVData uses a combination of CA and sim; but sim is at the heart as the CA part just reduces the sim hands required. I have a design to speed index gens; but am busy at the moment.

    Yeah, but didn't Caesars have the mentality that "nobody can count a six deck shoe."

    Those were the days late 70's and 80's....I never got heat! I think the only place I got barred was at the Mint (next door to the Horsehoe) where I got back-roomed and accused of wearing a computer to beat the table. When I said you can search me, they went to the closet, took out a computer wearing device that hooked up to the toes and said "We, don't have to search you again, we already did and took this device off you...didn't we guys...and all the people in the room shook their heads up and down! Gulp...that was scary. I think I also got barred at the Barbary Coast ....but everywhere else was open season. As Don S. said earlier...I loved Caesars then (currently barred)...no heat at all, could play all night...and I frequently did. I was playing black chips back then at 18. Show ID??? Never.....
