Re: Brh-II/Brh-I system

It is very difficult for any running count system to beat true count Zen. Usually the best we can do by running count is to beat Hi-Lo.
The main exception to this is single deck, where running counts such as UBZ11 do very good. Even better, Brh-II in running count mode in single deck can out perform true count AOII but not of course true count Brh-II or HiOpt-II.
Brh-I in running count mode is a little worse than UBZ11 in single deck and a little better in shoes, so while I do not have comparisons for two decks, I would estimate they would be very close, but both would be behind true count Zen, which would be behind true count Brh-I and of course all the non-ace reckoned level-2 systems.
However, while my booklet is almost done for the main counts, I am still investigating the potential for Brh-II as a running count system. I know it is very good in single deck, but it will still require either an ace-side count or secondary count in two or more decks. I would suggest that with a traditional ace-side count (which does require some kind of deck estimation, but this can be minimised) running count Brh-II would be darn close, if not better than true count Zen in two decks. The running secondary count version requires no deck estimation but the difficulty of the secondary count may outweigh this.
But the basic answer is that running count systems are rarely better than any true count level-2 or above, but it remains to be seen if running Brh-II is an exception to the rule.
