UBZ 11 and Zen '98

UBZ 11 is really two systems, a simple and effective strategy for 4-8 decks and a more difficult version with about 2x as many numbers to learn compared to other Intermediate systems for single deck. Serious players of this system should develop their own playing strategy for double deck games, where the multi-deck indices are clearly ineffective. With this refinement, UBZ 11 becomes the best overall choice for players who are not interested in eventually moving up to the Advanced level or beyond.
By morning I will add figures on the Zen system from the 2nd edition of Blackbelt in Blackjack to the Advanced systems comparison. Snyder's "true edge" method costs the player very little in playing accuracy but makes it difficult to ramp bets up effectively. A true edge point is worth not 1 percent as Snyder estimated, but closer to 1.5%. Zen players should divide by the number of quarter decks remaining for playing strategy decisions but by the number of half decks remaining for betting.
See the above post, ""More Updates," for links to the Intermediate and Advanced system comparisons.
