    Spanish 21 Basic Strategy

    Hi,

    I am new to play Spanish 21. I am trying to simulate the strategy listed on Katarina Walker's book "The Pro's Guide to Spanish 21 and Australian Pontoon" in CVData. I have 2 problems:

    • Page 14 shows a "Forfeit Strategy". This "Forfeit Strategy" is contradicting the chart above. For example, in "Forfeit Strategy", player 12-16 V.S. dealer 8, 9, X, A is always "F", which means "Forfeit". However, in the table above player 12-16 V.S. dealer 8, 9, X, A is all "H", which means "H". Which strategy has priority?
    • This particular Casino that I am playing at does not allow late surrender: I can surrender at first 2 cards, and I can get half of my money back after doubling. I don't understand how the table should be adjusted in this scenario.


    Is there anyway to get a hold of Katarina so I can ask her some questions? I am assuming her strategy must have been simulated before. Could anyone please give me some help?

    Any input is appreciated.

    Regards,
    Rui

    Forfeit = Double Down Rescue

    Sorry, I didn't realize Forfeit is Double Down Rescue in her book.

    Late Surrender = regular surrender

    Sorry, I didnt realize that late surrender is actual what is usually offered by casinos. Early surrender means we can surrender before dealer check hole card, late surrender means we can only surrender after dealer check hole card.

    Though weak, her strategy will get the job done. Walker has posted nothing about her system in long time. What should that tell you?
