Hello,

If I Change the hi-lo tags in the following way (for a BJ variant):
2:+1; 3:+1; 4: +1; 5:+1; 6: +2; 7: +1; 8: 0; 9: 0; 10: -1; Ace: -1
how are the indices most likely to Change?
My guess would be:
Positive Indices and Insurance: Index of hi-lo times 1.4 (7/5)
Negative Indices: Unchanged

let 's say 5 low cards 2-7 are removed evenly you would get as a RC +7 using the above altered tags instead of +5 on average;
this divided by the number of decks remaining would give the TC resp index for a certain playing Deviation...
e.g. 9 vs 2 is +1 in the hi-low (6D). Would the index then Change to +1.4?

Insurance equally should Change from +3,2 to +4,5...

What's the effect on the HA if you simply count down the Queens in the deck, since the most frequent pay events are based on them?

Much more effective to use a ten count.

Hi/Low TC +6.5 is the trigger for ladies, but that may change pending the number of decks.

If you're a small time player (red chipper) I'd absolutely recommend focusing on the Tens count and spreading to 2 hands when you hit your trigger. You can make a better hourly doing this with a bit more longevity as well at most places (especially if you're a red chipper).
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

"Hi/Low TC +6.5 is the trigger for ladies, but that may change pending the number of decks."

It changes based on both # of decks and pay tables. For the other two paytables, the trigger can be as low as +5 or as high as +8. Presumably the trigger is lower here because the house edge is significantly lower.
