    Even though you've been a member for 4 years, you've been inactive with only 10 posts, so you are probably unaware of aceside. In his 300ish posts, barely one has contained correct information. He's best ignored.

    Trust me. I put in a lot of thoughts on this side bet. The correct counting system should be Ace-6, meaning a lot of deficit of aces at a high true count. You count aces as +1 and sixes as -1, exactly opposite to HiLo. At high TC, you bet on bust bonus; at low TC, you bet more on blackjack. You do not need HiLo for regular blackjack. All you need is the Ace-6. Please help simulate this.

    As is the case with INS bets, side counting aces is helpful in SD and DD games, but virtually worthless on shoe games, as demonstrated by Wong a long time ago. For that reason, as well as the fact you almost never get a count high enough to bet it in a 6 or 8 deck game, your system is useless. Further, Norm stated that his software cannot sim this sidebet because it's placed after the cards are dealt.

    If you are that curious, contact Cadtwright, who has written custom BJ sim software that can sim just about anything. I'm sure he'll charge you for it, though.
