You changed this from your blog post to here. Does BJ pay 6:5 or 3:2? If it's 3:2, then the HA is very close to .285% based on realistic play. The wizard has a calculator over on the BJ page at www.wizardofodds.com. Based on the format of your question, it looks like you've found it. The only difference between your rules set and my calculation is the infinite resplitting in your rules. That will help you, but only very minimally so.

Very liberal. About the only realistic way to improve this game would be to play with fewer decks.

The 4 X splitting of Aces and the
unlimited splits is off the chart
the .285 is on the chart you mean
there is now advantage to the player
on the unlimited splits and the
spliting of aces 4 X

I understand they use the CSM's at Delaware Park...is this true? FWIW both Harrington and Dover deal from a shoe (there are a couple of tables where they use a CSM at Harrington--but, from what I recall, these are the BJ derivative games).

Situations where splitting infinite times and splitting aces 4 times will come up very rarely. The added benefit of those rules is not enough to swing the overall game to a player advantage, but it does make the HA slightly less than the .285%.

i find it kind of odd that you can split aces only up to 4 times and other hands an unlimited number of times. they should just limit you to either up to 4 splits for every hand or an unlimited number of splits on every hand. its not gonna make a difference much one way or another.
