Are there counting systems out there for freebet blackjack, super fun 21, bj switch? If so, what is a typical player advantage? I didn't include spanish 21, since the edge in counting is like 0.06%. Links and books are appreciated, though I have a very extensive library with a big order on the way and would prefer articles online.

Actually, I think the most common non-BJ blackjack game to be counted is Spanish21. There is a book about counting it. Something like "card counting Australian Pontoon". Not sure if it's still on the shelves or not -- the author died a few years ago, I reckon.

Free bet BJ seems to be the most similar with normal regular blackjack. I don't know of any count systems for it. But would probably be the easiest to analyze.

The book is called " The Pro's guide to Spanish 21 and Australian Pontoon" by Katarina Walker. It is a well written text explaining why Spanish 21 is beatable and how to do it. It explains the Hi-Lo count and how to use It for this game and it is still available but I'm not sure where to get it in the US.

Amazon, ebay, half... add a dot com to any of those =).

I've heard nothing but good things about this book. I really need to add it to my library.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
