Re: Archer Ten Count

The biggest problem with all existing ten counts is that they group the 9s with the small cards. I have solved this problem by creating the T-Hop 10 Cuunt, which uses the values A-8 +1 10 -2 and counts the 9s as 0. An ace side count could be used but I recommend a secondary count, such as 3,4,6 +1 5 +2 8,9 -1 A -3 which when added to the primary count yields the Halves count (2,7 +1 3,4,6 +2 5 +3 9 -1 10,A -2) for betting. This combined count is very difficult for a dual parameter system but also far more powerful than any general purpose blackjack system available today. You could also employ the T-Hop 10 count and team up with a partner who has mastered the popular Halves system. The Level Two volume of my card counting series will cover these counts and a similar unbalanced system which counts the 5 as +2 and uses the Uston SS Count(same as Halves except 2 =+2) for betting. Other counts that will be featured in that volume include T-Hop 2, Zen, Unbalanced Zen, and Omega II.
