Low Up-Card
If the dealer has a low up-card, the players will rarely take a hit that will break them. If no players break, 10-value cards will not tend to become concentrated into solid clumps because all the player hands will stay on the table until the end of the round. The mix of hands will generally be two-card stiffs and two card pat hands. If the dealer has a low up-card, the 10s will tend to end up well distributed and in relatively high proportions in the discard tray after this type of round. If the dealer shows a low up card in a majority of rounds in a shoe, not only will the players tend to be winning, but clumps of IN will tend to be broken up and become well distributed in the next shoe, a player-favorable situation.

Awesome/Must Reada
The Theory of Poker, by David Sklansky, Two Plus Two Publishing LLC; 3rd edition (July 1999). Sklansky is one of poker's top theorists. Although he's not a feared tournament player, his books are a reference for any player who is learning the game, and The Theory of Poker is his best work, because it describes many fundamental poker principles. One caveat: If you are a beginner, you will probably find the book a bit difficult to follow in places. Also (might as well get it all out of the way at once), Sklansky is, by his own admission (see page nine of Hold'em Poker for Advanced Pokers) not a "professional writer." He writes great poker books, virtual must-reads that will teach you a lot, but he won't dazzle you with his prose. So what? If you're feeling empty afterwards, read some Shakespeare.
