Romes great guide. this has cleared up a lot of fogginess for me. Especially all the lingo and acronyms everyone uses on here yet tends to forget that beginners have no idea what theyre talking about.


Thanks for the feedback jay. I'm exceedingly glad to hear your comments and know that this thread helped on a lot of levels from answering questions down to lingo/acronyms/etc. =)

I am able to manipulate and modify spreadsheets to meet my needs in business. Unfortunately, I do not know where and how to start with creating one which would mimic your recommendations.

Would you be willing to share your spreadsheet? It would really help me in determining my optimal bet spreads. RoR I can get from CVCX.

Thank you for your consideration of my request. Here's hoping you are willing to do so.

I was confused too. i pulled out the true count frequencies from ProBJ (S.W) and then just plugged in the numbers with the math he has shown in his spreadsheet. My spreadsheet is on hard paper. No tricky Excell calculations in ink...

Here are the TC Frequencies from Googling, but you can find many more in good BJ books from Wong, Schlesinger, Snyder, Thorp, Grosgean, Griffin, etc. This is just something to get you started showing some frequencies per penetration (hopefully showing why penetration is so important):



I uploaded a few of my spreadsheets to my dummy Google Doc's account for you guys... Yes, you should have a different spreadsheet with the different frequencies for 1D, 2D, 6D, and 8D. This will save you a lot of time in the future when you happen upon a game and want to run some numbers in a matter of minutes. Do note that I edit these often so if it's a 2D game with 6D frequencies or something my apologizes. I just tried to grab a few that I thought would help:

1 Deck (25): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1TiTBCuj4GHK0E_mRry3IGbWyqkfarimxskLL0Fxeygw/edit?usp=sharing
2 Deck (25): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OI8WlO3yiigX8MAs9URDYLTkPNSQfbF9cXrlB7nWiZ0/edit?usp=sharing
6 Deck (10): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-jCr5jRUiAg_s59IFTz6B2wqKyDJmyQkiSlddT7RdNc/edit?usp=sharing

Feel free to download a copy of these, but please do not edit them (though I locked the cells so you shouldn't be able to edit them anyways). Between the sheet, this thread, the articles, I think all of the columns/rows are spelled out. You can also just click any column once and see the formula used as well.

Let me know if you guys have any further questions!

I don't get to play as much as I used to. It is a lot tougher for us to take 500 to a casino these days. However I have been practicing counting over the last few weeks and went to the casino to play yesterday and it was a total disaster. Counting is a lot tougher than it appears and I consider myself to be pretty intelligent. I used cancellations and that worked pretty well but when the count went from positive to negative and then back my brain started to hurt. I was especially struggling with dealing with negative numbers.

My brain doesn't like low cards being positive and high cards being negative. I thought about reversing the counts so that low was negative. Has anyone ever done that?

If you start at some other number than zero (hint - try 10), and adjust everything around that fact, you don't have to deal with negative numbers very often. When you do, by all means go take a leak....;-)
Youuuuuu MIGHT be a 'rascal' if.......(nevermind ;-)...2F
