Thanks Singapore for your input. I have been using Ko for sbout 3 months and it has been mediocre. Before then I used Hi-Lo also for a short period. I'm considering this change to Revere Point count because it
1. As Hi-Lo it detects favorable decks and betting situations more frequetely than KO (simmed this several times on SBA 3.0 and the sim revealed that Hi-Lo would reach a TC of +4 aprox. 2.1% of the time vs KO reaching a RC of +4 (the pivot) aprox. 1.2% of the time. May this is a small advatage but over the long haul it means more units in action and for me playing the AC game backcounting and Wonging I need the higher frequency of advantage so I can get more playing time in. I will continue to use Hi-Lo (Actually it is the Silver Fox Count 2-7 = +1 & 9-Ace = -1, it is for all intensive purposes even with Hi-Lo however the card tags make for an easier transition to the Higher level counts I'm interested in the level 2 Revere Point Count 2&7 = +1; 3-6 = +2; 10&Ace = -2 and the level 3 Wong Halves converted to wholes 2&7 = +1; 3, 4, 6 = +2; 5 = +3; 9= -1; 10&Ace = -2. I believe the Wong halves is one of the most powerful single parameter count around. I just may make the switch to Wong Halves from Silver Fox when ready.
2. With the rumor of 4 deck coming to AC I believe I can switch between 4, 6 and 8 deck games more easily with a balanced count (always starts at zero and a TC of +1 is the same for all 3 games. With KO I have to remember the IRC for each different game and the Key Count for each different game. See that even if I were to go to Vegas I probably don't have a good enough act to last long at a single deck or double deck game so the Multiple deck numbers for the balanced count would still hold true vs remebering the different IRC's and Key Count's, not that I have a memory problem. BTW I did make the mistake of not switching from 6 deck IRC and Key Count to 8 deck numbers and it was devastating!!!!! Putting out my Max Bet prematurely and getting clobbered because the advantage was not there.
Well thats enough for me, thanks in for the input.
