I was told if the cards are “shuffled” card counting systems wont work….

I would like to know why?

Thank you,

2 thru 7 when played is counted as a +1 8’s when played count as 0 9’s, 10’s A’s when played count as -1

This count is extremely accurate, easy to use, requires minimal brain power and because of its simplistic nature - affords one the opportunity to perform a ” count per hand ” and incorporate that into your running count for the multiple deck games.

This count as not the optimal count as recomended for the single deck games ( the Revere Point Count - a level 2 count ) is optimal for all 2 deck and above games whereas the player needs to identify and maintain the count under extremely adverse and fast moving conditions.

Out of curiosity - I would like to receive some feedback from players as to what card counting method they use - along with the ease of use of same - and the playing efficiency of same.

Thanks, in advance—

I’m new to the world of blackjack and I have a few questions I’d like to ask. These are probably “super-beginner” questions, but that would be really nice if you could enlighten me !

My first question is about card counting and its efficiency. I did a research and found out about the different counting system (I chose to use Hi-Lo). So, the higher the count is, the better for the player. This is because more high cards remain in the shoe , and high cards benefits the player. The dealer is more likely to bust and the player is more likely to get two high cards (19,20,Blackjack). To me the problem is here. Sure, the player has big chances to get high cards, but the dealer could also get them instead of the player. So in my opinion, the high cards in this situation could benefits either the player, either the dealer or even both. I don’t know if I’m right about this, so I need your help here.

I also have a question about the use of the counting system in the game. I’m putting aside my doubts about the card counting here. How do you use the card counting? Do you combine the count with basic strategy (the tables you can find on the internet)? Do you only play accord to the count? What are you suppose to do with the count?

Thanks a lot for your time!

]]>But Red 7 starts at -12: a long way down.

And only about half the cards are used before reshuffle.

Is it valid to start therefore at -6?

Please advise.

]]>For all cards 2 through 6, add one to the count. Cards 7, 8, and 9 are neutrals, so add zero to the count. Cards 10 through Ace are a minus one, so subtract one from the count.

When you sit down at a table with a new full shoe, the count starts at 0. As the cards are dealt and revealed, count using the above method. Pretty much anyone who can add 1+1 can follow this method, so it’s pretty popular. If you miss any of the cards or if the deck is not new, it can really mess up your count and your odds based on card counting, so make sure you are paying attention!
