Re: reference for side count gain

Naively Lucky,

John Imming broke new ground with his UBEPro which can generate multiparameter adjusts for any count. The manual that comes with this software includes complete hit/stand multiparameter adjusts for HOII. Each sidecount is generated separately based on a 52 card deck. Imming points out there is a loss because of interference. For Hi-OptII 1-Dk the 9 adds 5.6% to PE while the 8 adds 3.92% and the Ace adds 4.76%. The 9,8,A together only add 9.38%. Because of this interference Imming recommends that the 7 be counted "FIRST AND FOREMOST"(13.16% gain!) and then the 6(4.9%) since they have virtually no interference. The 7,6 together give an 18.2% gain taking Hi-OptII's PE from .67 to .79!

Based on sims it seems the gain to PE is similar among systems. In other words if the 7 adds 13% to Hi-OptII's PE then it will also add roughly 13% to any system's PE. So, if you strive for the highest overall PE(best for 1Dk) it makes sense to pick a base count with a strong PE --- ace neutral.

T-Hopper promises to have the latest idea for taking $$ from the casinos through combined counts. The book which will present this approach has not been released.
