"On KO System, the book says 11 vs 10 on positive count one should double. This is obviously in the States. Playing in Africa, where dealer does peek the 10's (and can have an Ace under his 10), is it still valid to double 11's in positive count?"
In the States, the dealer usually will peek under his Ten-value upcard and will collect only the players' original bets when he discovers an Ace there. The dealer allows no time for double-down bets or splits to be made. The advice in the Knock Out book is therefore correct and it is, in fact, to double-down 11vT as Basic Strategy. (Referring to 11vA, it suggests to DD on a KO key count of -4 and above, in a 6-deck game.)
Playing in a European No-Hole Card game, which means the dealer gets his hole card last and he collects all double-down bets & splits if he gets a natural, it is not correct to double-down 11vT in a multideck game unless the HiLo TC is equal to or greater than +3.
