Single Denomination
 

There are certain important situations in strategic variation which are not handled ill by any of the single parameter card counting systems. Among these are knowing when to stand with 15 and 16 against a dealer 7 or 8 and knowing when to stand with 12, 13, and 14 against a dealer 9, Ten, or Ace. Before presenting a method to improve single parameter card counting systems it is useful to look at a quantification of the relative importance of the separate denominations of nontens in the deck. This quantification can be achieved by calculating the playing efficiency of a card count which assigns one point to each card except the denomination considered, which counts as -12.

These single denomination efficiencies with n = 20 cards left in the deck are as follows:

Get Hit With the Deck
Start counting your money when you get hit with the deck or as some players say, when you get hit in the face with the deck). This means you have been catching (receiving) virtually every card you've been hoping for. It's common when visiting a poker room to hear something like, "I was helpless: The deck hit him so hard that I thought his brother was dealing."
