let me give you the rundown..

I play at walker hill Korea and they use 8 decks
majority playing bj are fucking idiots example hitting on 14 when dealer has 6, surrendering 12 etc..
btw mostly Japanese and Chinese players (fuckers)

I avoid these players and count using the zen strategy and my question how do you bet with the count high. chances are dealer will get same as you. I’ve got the count within 10 seconds but am having trouble calculating the running deck/count accurately and am wondering how often to divide the deck with the count

i make more money betting freely (when I’m on a roll and ignore the count)

ps I know they say the novice player will help you as much as they Hirt you but there are to many idiots

I assume you are in the military or in gov’t employ.

I was assigned to Teague 8th Army Rear / 8th Army Depot Command back in ‘69 to ‘70 - my last 6 months in the Army after 2 1/2 years in the Tropics - Viet Nam - Haiwiia.

Anyhow - to answer your question - simple - in an 8 deck game - the last two decks are cut off - if more than that - not a good game - if less than that - better for you.

I was trained to employ the Koko Ita count - similar to the Hi-Lo - but 2 thru 7 is a +1;  8’s are 0 ; 9’s, 10’s and A’s are -1.

While observing the discard rack - you need to break the increasing growth of the rack down by how many decks were played -

It is easier done than explained -  each deck of cards is approx. 3/4 ” high - check this out yourself using a new deck(s) - you then need to convert the amount of decks that have been played by the running count.

For Example - in a single deck game a count of +3 in the 1st hand played would be a definate indicator to increase your wager(s) in the next hand played!

In a multiple ( 8, 6, 4 ) deck game - one needs to be able to easily extrapolate ( convert ) these numbers.

In an 8 deck game - the 1st two decks played are disregarded for maximum wagering situations.

At the beginning of the 3rd deck played - you are looking for a running count total of +12 or higher to make a large wager - which is samo-samo to a +3 in a single deck game.

At the 4th deck the count goes to +9, at the 5th deck the count goes to +6, and at the last deck ( 6th out of 8 ) the count goes to +3.

It’s a relatively simple concept once you get the hang of it.

Good Luck - and give a shout if I can help !
