One thing I noticed at a full table is that sometimes the players will want to know where all the Teen and Day tiles are. So, I guess if it's discovered that all of the Teen and Day tiles are in player hands, that might be some useful information some how?? I don't know, that's the kind of math that's way above my head when it comes to tiles.
I don't recall exactly what the decrease in house edge was, I think it was 0.03% or less,
Thanks for chiming in. Could it be said you only looked at the situation of counting teens and days, not determining the exact eight tiles left?
Surprising it is only 0.03%. I'd have guessed a lot more.
I did not look at the situation where the dealer's tiles were known. I suspect that would provide enough of an advantage to crush the game in a low-variance manner if all 7 players were in on it.
It says play the first rule that applies. The first rule is the "only one way" rule. Does this rule only apply to a situation where my high hand and low hand are simultaneously higher than any other combination?
The very last rule says, "Play the best high hand with all other combinations." Does this mean I ignore things like balance; i.e., if I can play (non-high)9,0 or 6,6 or 7,5, I would play 9,0 and not 6,6?
I'm just so used to the 4-rule "basic strategy" ... I'm not sure if the the JB strategy is supposed to supersede all of that, or if that strategy is just "assumed" in the "only one way" part.
My simple strategy outperforms the house way. Try to unlearn the house way, as it's not very powerful.
