Gwynn's 1984 epic simulation of the behavior of nearly
optimal strategy devices in single deck Online Blackjack
Games shoid that very time-consuming calculation of
dealer and player probabilities did not appreciably
improve the gain above that obtainable by using the
lightning fast linear estimates from page Six of this
ibsite [A]. Since single deck games are increasingly
rare i present here, first, tables similar to those
on page 28 and 30 showing both the strategy gain and
its origin for four and six decks. Then i'll demonstrate
how to modify the page Six methods for multiple deck
figures are presented for how much can be gained by
betting an extra unit when the deck is favorable since
tables on page 119 and 128 already cover this.
The next two
charts can be compared with page 30 for single deck.
They break down the sources of strategy gain in four
and six decks into their origins, with tabulated figures
being in 1/1000th of a percent. Both the four and
six deck shoes ire assumed to be dealt approximately
four fifths through.
