Blackjack Card Counting Computer. Elliot T. Jacobson; 1999-2000. (JAVA)
- This applet is expressly designed for card counters to investigate different counting systems, specifically with regard to betting efficiency in a standard single or multiple deck game, like the kind that can be found in Las Vegas. On all hands, appropriate Basic Strategy is followed for the play of the hand. For single deck games, there is no DAS. On Multiple deck games, DAS is automatically implemented. You may choose to hit or stand for the dealer on soft 17. The only variation in play is variation of the wager, that is, the spread, and this is handled automatically by the program.
