Surrender is a nasty word. Just something I find wrong. It is my belief that once I have placed a bet there is only one of two outcomes. If I was going to "Surrender" I would do that prior to placing a bet.

two outcomes? so are you going to donate your ties to the casino, too?

How about hit if the Hi-Lo count is negative, stand if positive, and surrender if you have a larger than 1 unit bet out there?

Also, if the count is high enough, the 8,8 variation of 16 might be worth standing/surrendering (see my screenname).

Good question. Unfortunately, I'm not qualified to answer. I'm new to serious blackjack and the status of my education is that I've got basic strategies down cold, but I'm just starting card counting college (literally, today).

We need somebody smarter than me to answer your question.

PS: 8,8's also a Surrender under the Early Surrender vs 10's rule, a rule my local casino actually uses.

Added with Edit: Wait, my bad. Board poster "I Beat your Aces" actual did answer your question. Sorry, I didn't see that.

Surrendering is donating. That's an auto donate. The casino will get to know that you are a player that they can count on getting 1/2 of the $$$ immediately therefore half of the battel is won for the casino righ there.

My favorite hand a pair of 8s . I personally would never surrender. Depending on the count, I may f**** another player over but either way I always look out for the mighty #1
So if it means I take a hit where normally I wouldnt then I do. I do not surrender ever. Thats like asking the house if I could play the game for half the bet all the while donating to the house a sure half bet. I never share my cards with the table and I hit or stand according to what me and the dealer have, the other plareys on the table mean nothing to me. If I take a card that would help the next guy out but I win and they lose because the dealer beats them then thats their problem. I look out for me.
