This is exactly what MrBrightSide and me are looking for. I cast out a minnow but hooked back a big shark. We definitely have advanced APs here in this forum. Thank you for your hard work.

Would you like to try that again in English this time!

Don - You're not giving aceside the credit he deserves. He's a Renaissance man. He's equally inept in several fields besides math.

I am grateful to you for correcting my English problem. You are a super AP after all, so when you comment I know there is a problem somewhere. Let me also take the opportunity to correct the math problems in the chart I posted here earlier.

The calculator from ICountNTrack has verified some of my mistakes in this chart. The biggest mistakes are these: player 10 vs dealer 10, EV<0; 10 vs 11, EV<0. There are also a few other mistakes, so please use the chart with your own discretion.

There are also a few strategy discrepancies between Wizard’s chart and ICountNTrack calculator. Most notable one is 11 vs 10. Wizard says to hit but ICountNTrack says to double. I guess this is because Wizard used infinite deck.

Hi ICountNTrack, I found your calculator very powerful but also extremely slow. It took me more than 15 minutes to calculate the player hand 2, 2 vs T, 2 when I chose single deck and 1-split. For my laptop, it is impossible to calculate this hand when I chose 6 deck 1-split. Do you have any simpler calculator for this purpose?

My CA computes split EV fully optimally and will take a long time to compute especially for low ranked cards.

Sorry for the late feedback about the calculator, just been on a holiday.
@iCountNTrack
Like aceside mentioned, your CA was excatly what I (and aceside) were looking for.
I have to say that when I use the CA for the max amount of decks possible (8 I think it is, it gives the same results as the wizards chart).
I would like to mention that when I use the 55 combination (64 combination works just fine), that the program stops responding, maybe that's only for me or maybe you already aware, but so you know.
Overall it's a an awesome tool and thank you for sharing the solution. If there is any subscription fee or something let me know .
