Hi folks, Bryce Carlson prints a pretty exhaustive list of index plays using his Advanced Omega II count in "Blackjack for Blood." It looks like the printed indices are for single deck play. Would the index plays differ greatly for 2D and 6D games? If so, anyone know how I could get my hands on those numbers? Thanks!

I haven't counted much the past couple years. From what I remember from hi/lo the indices are the same (or so close that it doesn't matter) but the insurance numbers are different. So I am pretty confident the indices don't change based on the deck, no matter what system you are using. but I'm sure someone who knows for sure will post and answer your question.

I also assume that if it actually was different he would have put them in the book too, so I think you are good to just learn the single deck indices. Good variance my friend!

Hkl,

When I first started counting a few years back, after learning that I could easily learn hi-lo and the I18/F4, I bought that book. I devoured the book the first day, making notes on my computer as I was reading. Needless to say, I was hooked on the clarity of his book, and the apparent improvement that I could bring to my play due to the strength of AO II w/ASC, over the simplicity of hi-lo.

Next, I purchased Casino Verite software to run simulations to generate index numbers for deviations based upon different conditions (decks, S17/H17, pen, DAS, LS/NS, etc.). It did result in different index numbers for some hands. Then I used the software to analyze my bankroll and optimal betting spread.

So consider a purchase of software to do your own due diligence before putting your hard earned money on the line.

Thanks for the tips! I have CVCX, but not other CV software. I'll have to poke around a bit more to get more exact numbers.
