The wizard says on one of his pages that he believes the hi-low is more powerful than the ko, but online the ko is listed as having a higher betting and playing efficiency, does anyone know why he recommends the hi-low?

"ko" ?

Pardon my ignorance. What game are you referring to?

I assume Hi/Low refers to Roulette, but...

KO and Hi-Low are blackjack counting systems.

KO is short for Knock Out and is an unbalanced system that uses 2-7 as +1 and Ten-Ace as -1. It is considered unbalanced, because more cards yield a positive count. Depending on the number of decks, a key count is maintained, at which point you bet more.

Hi-Low is a balanced count. Generally considered more powerful, whereas KO is considered by some to be easier.

I agree. Maybe I need to review what I have written, because I don't wish to diss the KO. Weighing power and ease of use, I think the KO is appropriate for most players.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

For some reason, when I read the title of this thread, I thought it said "Betting systems".

Yeah, I know counting systems would refer to BlackJack. On the flip side, I never got into them enough to know what the systems are called.

Thanks.

I've been practicing both systems for several months now. Using KO, I'm currently at 40 seconds counting down a single deck. Not satisfied until I can do it in 30 seconds or less, -consisently and accurately. HOWEVER, I can count down faster using the HI LO system?? Maybe this is because there are more neutral cards to ignore? I haven't even begin studying how to do TC conversions because I'm still working on my speed. So would this mean that RC is easier with the HI LO? Apparently for me it is. Something to consider. Any thoughts?
