Repost: Hi-Opt I Side Counts

Posted by T-Hopper on Tuesday, 2 December 1997, at 11:55 a.m., in response to Re: I Need a Good Side-count, posted by Bill A on Monday, 1 December 1997, at 8:40 p.m.

I ran these through Blackjack Formulator, which selects the best count to use for each play from the following:

Primary count
Primary + side count
Primary - side count
Side count alone

None of these systems except the single card side counts for 2, 7, 8, and 9 have ever been published or evaluated to the best of my knowledge. Please email me if there is any interest in any of these. The Card Counter's System Sourcebook will only cover the Ace side count, but I would be willing to consider making a special volume for the Hi-Opt I multi-parameter systems if there is enough interest.
IMO, the gain from the {789} or {78} side count is large enough to justify the time and effort involved in playing it correctly, rather than with the guesswork methods alluded to above.

The best secondary count I came up with is A23 vs. 789, with a 2 deck PE of .722.

Side Counts2 Deck PE
Hi-Opt I Alone.634
Ace Only.657
Ace + {789}.754
Ace + {78}.752
Ace + {89}.711
