Requested Data

I will state below the data that you requested: expectations for A2,A3,A4 vs. 4 in a 6 deck S17 game. These are the results of my own calculations. They are not quite exact; I use 44-card infinite deck approximations (here we should call it 304-card infinite deck) That is, after 4 cards are taken by the dealer and 4 cards taken by the player, the subsequent dealing is done with replacement. I can elaborate more on this technique if you wish. The slight error in this method is essentially negligible for multiple decks.

Mean indicates Expectation (in %) and SD is standard deviation.

``` Results for: A 4 (Soft 15) vs. 4
Dble Mean = 6.24 SD = 1.953
Hit Mean = 5.94 SD = 0.976
Results for: A 3 (Soft 14) vs. 4
Hit Mean = 8.17 SD = 0.972
Dble Mean = 6.69 SD = 1.953
Results for: A 2
