This could be a conflict, or it could just be a different rule for different table rules. Your BJ guide here shows to always stand on soft 19:

However when playing in your trainer here, your advice is to double my soft 19 against a dealer 6:

Is this because:

1. Because your rules are for when the dealer stands on soft 17, and my game is set for a dealer hit on soft 17

2. An error in the website rules or simulator

3. Something else

Thanks

I have no pretenses of being the Wizard, but #1 is correct. Here are the tables for both S17 and H17:

The correct play depends on whether the dealer hits or stands on a soft 17. The basic strategy you linked to is for standing on soft 17, where standing is best. The game was set to hit on a soft 17, where doubling is best. The proper strategy both ways is at wizardofodds.com/blackjack/strategy/4deck.html
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
