I'm having a little trouble with the statistics, so maybe some of you math wiz's can help me out.

I'm curious what the odds are of winning a hand at -1. If using a progressive betting system at a count of -1 or higher, and <0, would eliminate any odds of winning at that count, what affect would that have on your overall edge? Would this be a profitable camouflage if I were to wong out at <-1? If so, would it be profitable to progressively bet at -2 or greater, <0, and wong out at <-2?

Thanks Dieter, I wouldn't have guessed it to look like that. I just ordered 'blackjack attack' so hopefully that will be it for elementary questions regarding statistics.

It's kind of funny though; I read that each value affects the odds by +/- .5%. Doesn't seem consistent with the graph.

I think you're looking at the "win" line not going up much.

Look at the "lose" line going down... by about a half percent per TC.
May the cards fall in your favor.
