I just want to confirm something that might be a stupid question.

15: 12 vs 4 Tc 0
16: 12 vs 5 Tc -2
17: 12 vs 6. Tc -1
18: 13 vs 3 Tc -2

Is the correct play in these situation to stand or double. I assume itís standing but I just want to be sure.

You stand if the true count is equal or above the value stated.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Bosox.

Why didnt 14v10 make the. ill 18? Was it close in Don S study?
Or just too close of a call? So it's better to always hit.

A question for my study. Thanks.

Moses, it is on the same page as the ill18 that Don refers to as the Fab 4 which is surrender plays that are very important plays for shoe games with big spreads.
Remember based on all of chapter 10 Don used the Hi LO count. That creates a problem why there is no index plays for hit/stand on hard 14 because the Hi Lo count does not count the sevens, the most important card when you are holding a hard 14.

What does Don S say in his books'about splitting in a No DAS game in his book? Are the number of splits reduced?

Shoild be my last question?

Don has the best basic strategy charts available today only I realize that is not what you are looking for. However, what he does have that should be of big interest to you playing the single deck games is starting on page 495 in Appendix D, which are for effects of removal in the 1,2,6, and 8 deck games. Moses, with that column count that you use your playing efficiency numbers, should be off the charts. To answer your second question the number of splits is reduced in a NDS game, and you do need some higher true counts to make some of those splits. I like to also refer to my old reliable standby books from Wong. I hope it helps.

Moses, just curious do you receive a large amount of preferential re-shuffling? How do you react when that does happen?
