Rounding Index Numbers?

Posted by D-M on 10 June 1998, at 7:54 p.m.

How much affect does rounding an index number have?

For example, most counts say to hit 13 Vs. 2 at -1. What if I decide to say the rule of thumb is to hit at any minus "running" count? Sometimes if you divide through, your true count would actually be closer to 0 than to -1...

My friend says that the difference is megligible, but I don't make this play unless I know that I have a -1 or less TC, because my attitude is, the index numbers are there for a reason, and I would think that by rounding these numbers, it will affect win rate, and risk.
