    You should be able to order it from Amazon. We used EV maximizing indices except for the one in question here (10 vs T - hole card games) and 11 vs T (ENHC).
    Okay, have the book. Just so I understand the reasoning.

    EV maximizing (though I do see some differences with Wong on + counts, and for that matter truncated negatives), except for the sole? Risk averse notation of 10 v 10 at +7. So I think that’s pretty clear.

    But why ENHC 11 v 10 vs hole card, or for that matter NHC which for all intents and purposes are the same.

    For the time being, I’ll peruse those tables closest to my normal games - tables 21.1, 21.2, 21.3.

    We changed 11 vs T for ENHC only from +4 to +11 because, at the EV-maximizing index of +4, using the index actually decreases SCORE. Even so, it's value at the risk averse index of +11 is so small that it does not even make the Nifty 50 for some of the ENHC games we examined. See page 20 for commentary about this play.
