It is described in some of the earlier messages on the page.

There are three terms you need to know.

Primary count: I usually use this to refer to an ace-neural count, such as Hi-Opt I(3-6 +1 10 -1)

Final Count: This refers to a count that includes the aces as -1 or -2 and is used for betting. You can also memorize some plays that the final count should be used for to increase your playing efficiency. Example: High-Low(2-6 +1 10, A -1)

Secondary Count: This is a running count that is tracked in addition to the primary count. You can add it to the primary count to get the final count. The most popular is the ace-deuce count(2 +1 A -1). This can be added to Hi-Opt I and you will end up with High-Low.

Another use for the ace-deuce count is the same as above except both the primary and final counts include the 7, and you use the running count instead of true count for all playing decisions. This is called the T-Hop 1/K-O combined count.

The count I came up with for Omega II is 3,5 +1, A -2. When added to Omega II this gives you a count that is equivalent to the Halves count, which is very good for betting purposes. I find this much easier to use than the ace side count, especially in shoe games because the count tends to stay near 0 rather than going as high as 24 and you simply add the numbers together before figuring the true count.
