    Proper training goes a long way in any field.

    Tarzan's humor is also very subtle. I had my laugh of the day a few minutes ago when I found out the latest news about Nicki Minaj. Until his post I had no clue who Nicki Minaj was as well as her cousin. What a way to draw attention from the White House!
    Nicki Manaj is just another typical American politician, not a blackjack player. What I want to discuss is more into the Tarzan count, but people here keep stepping on “unhelpful” without saying anything.

    There have been many Tarzan count threads in this forum. You can just Google it to find them.

    I just studied up about this online. It seems BJanalyst, seriousplayer and you have had intense discussion about this, but the real inventor and executor Tarzan has been silent on this. You are very knowledgeable!

    Apparently you just read the current Tarzan count thread on this forum. Actually there are more threads 10 or 20 years ago on blackjackinfo before this forum was born. Then Tarzan was more active on posting, like this one (see #19):

    Sometimes I like to revisit old threads on blackjackinfo. It is like visiting old friends. Most of them are no longer with us.

    You say that now, but you probably don't want to learn T count. I've tried to teach a couple of people the technique, and it's obvious that it's not something the general public is going to be able to contend with, just as had already been predicted by Don S. to me long ago. There is a worst case scenario, in which you don't master the count and all it's nuances, but instead fall back to some sort of bastardized version of it that is less effective than learning HiOptII or something comparable to begin with that takes much less effort to master.

    T count is fairly fucking awesome, but difficult to learn. I could perhaps find a way to disguise myself, my voice, etc., perhaps dress in drag so I'd look a lot like Margaret Thatcher, and do a proper demonstration of it in a video for the academic amusement factor. Trying to teach it to any extent becomes out of the question, though. There's no benefit to me to speak of, more negatives than positives, and a potential for it being of no benefit or even detrimental to those trying to learn it if they are unwilling or unable to go the whole enchilada on it.

    If you need better track of the remaining card than Hi-Lo, then Hi OPT-II with Ace side count would be very nice to solve this problem. For sure , Hi-Opt I or Hi OPT-II with Ace side count can increase you odds comparing to Hi-Lo
    However, this thing is tough with 6-decks. Not quite possible for regular human.

    I practice a lot of Hi-Opt I with Ace side for 6-decks. Finally I gave up because I made too many errors . Hi OPT-II with Ace side count is much harder than Hi-Opt I with Ace side count, so I did not even bother to try it

    Hi-opt II Counting:


    45 =+2
    2367=+1
    T=-2
    A89=0

    Also you need to have independent count of Ace running from 0-24 for 6 deck. Richness of Ace per deck eq (24 -# Aces) / (#decks left).
    >4 Ace rich, <4 Ace Poor
