i played live dealer BJ at 5dimes

looks like they play a 6 deck shoe and give .66 penetration and they show u the shuffle

can this game be tamed using card counting strategies?

While 2/3 is not that good with 6 decks, you could do a perfect analysis of the game with something like beejack. Definitely worth considering.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

their penetration is 75% according to the house rule page. early surrender against 10 is offered, so the house edge off the top is quite low.

seems like this game can be beat with a simple hi-low system and ranging bets from 1-5 units

Please do.
