I was wondering if This game, Texas shootout, is possible to be card counted.

It's played from a shoe and the cut card is usually super deep. I was wondering if something similar to blackjack could be applied here.

One thought I had, If you know for example 8 3's had been out and only 1 2 had been out, you should probably keep 22 over 33 if you decide not to split. Just stuff like that

Initial review after just reading the game: There isn't anything substantial enough about the removed cards to leverage towards a solid player edge with low enough variance to actually make it a winning game. Now, I'm not saying the game is impossible to beat, but card counting doesn't sound like the way to go.

Stuff like this won't give you an edge, but could be fun and be somewhat (VERY SMALL) towards the player. Maybe lower the HE from 2.57% to 2.55% for example.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

On a busy table you won't see lots of cards. When other players discard their two non played cards, they are discarded face down. You would have to sit in the middle and look at all plays on both sides. Card sharing would not normally be allowed, so I'd say you are much better off trying another game.
