Let's say you are anywhere in a single deck.

No, I would not bet two hands if 1 or 0 Aces remained in a single deck.

I wouldn't bet at all.


Well, assuming you are anywhere on a single deck, I would still bet if there is 1 ace remaining dependent of other factors.

Even if deck is still rich with tens?

Yes.

It really comes down to what count you are using. If you are using a basic Hi Lo or Knock Out system, then, according to the betting index, you should ramp up on positive TC regardless of Aces, which is why it's better used on 6D/8D games.

But, if you are using a neutral Ace count system like Hi Opt II with ASC, you can have a True Count of +4, but if Aces are depleted, you will keep your bets at minimum spread according to the index with ace side count.

Very intelligent response. My simple rule is always drop to minimum bet when I see the 3rd Ace played. Seeking a way to get more 2 hand bets or money on the table, I was considering betting 2 hands if the deck was rich in tens and 1 Ace remaining. Playing the dealer straight up, the logic is to gather more large cards. Previous runs suggest it isn't worth it and evens out in the long run. But it never hurts to get another pro opinon.
