Your system is sub-optimal!

Everyone can see that this is a simplified version of my Eight Bleeding Hearts Count: I have
2-7's as +1, 10-A as -1, 8hearts as +1 and 8spades as -1. (Performs every bit as well as K-Y).

What everyone can see, is that by only counting the hearts and spades (rather than all red 8's and all black 8's), your so-called system is subject to wild distortions caused by non-normal distribution of hearts and spades among the 8's.

It was while trying to work out ways to minimize those distortions that I hit upon the JohnAuston-1, which, far from being a "simplified version" of your EBHC, offers, rather, a significant improvement in SD.
