Multi Parameter Card

As was pointed out in the previous page, many experts prefer to assign a value of zero to the ace in order to achieve a higher playing efficiency. They then recommend keeping a separate, or "side," count of the aces in order to adjust their primary count for betting purposes. Let's take a look at how this is done and what the likely effect will be.

Consider the Hi Opt i, or Einstein, count, which has a betting correlation of .88.

 A 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 T Hi Opt i 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 -1 Betting Effect -.61 0.38 0.44 0.55 0.69 0.46 0.28 0 -0.18 -.51

 The average absolute effect of the Einstein monitored cards is = .52, just a bit less .44 + .55+ .69 + .46 + 4 X (.51) 8

Simultaneous Games

Sometimes playing two or more games at once can be highly profitable. There are some potential problems, though, so let's examine the arguments for and against this approach. For simplicity's sake, I will examine only the benefits and drawbacks of playing two simultaneous games, but you can apply all reasoning and arguments about two games to situations where you are playing three or more. One player I know likes to play six games simultaneously!
