Re: No more planned - here's why

And, with the max bet being only twice the minimum
bet, strategy edge is also hobbled by the small multiple
on the table at the time of the more corrrect decision.

I can anticipate that someone will ask for a clarification of this statement, so I'll explain the phenomenon that is being referred to.

When I first started woring on the Sourcebook, I had an idea for a new variable, Running Count Efficiency. This would be a multiplier that could be used to adjust the calculated true count PE when using a running count. However, the relative PE for unbalanced running counts is higher with a bet spread than with flat bets. This is because the pivot point makes them more accurate for playing strategy variation with large bets in positive decks. My tests of Griffin-1 running count vs. T-Hop 1 illustrated this clearly. Maybe I will post some of the figures when I have time.
