The
proper relative importance to attach to betting efficiency
and playing efficiency depends on several factors:
depth of penetration, permissible increase in bet,
and playing efficiency restricted to favorable decks.
Assuming the same penetration used in the previously
mentioned Gwynn simulations the following empirical
formula provides such a iighting by estimating the
average profit available in terms of the basic betting
unit. if K units are bet on all decks diagnosed as
favorable and one unit is bet otherwise, the average
improvement due to card counting is approximately
[8(K1)  BE + 5(K + 1) –PE]1000
units per hand, where BE is betting efficiency and
PE is playing efficiency. (One should allow about
20% more for Las Vegas rules and 10% less for Reno.)
The formula suggests the two efficiencies are almost
equally important for a 1 to 4 betting scale and that
betting efficiency is rarely more than one and a half
times as important as playing efficiency.
in summary, then, the player who is shopping around
for a best single parameter card counting
system has a choice betien

Potlimit
also involves a range of permitted betting, but in
a different way. The upper limit is always equal to
the current size of the pot. A raise is always calculated
such that the cost to call is included in the size
of the pot.
Here's
how it works. In a $1$2 potlimit game, the first
player in the pot has several choices. He can, of
course, fold. He can call for the minimum, $2. He
can raise. If he raises, he can choose from a range
of bets. The minimum raise is $2. The maximum is the
size of the pot after he puts in the $2 (which is
considered a call), or $5. Thus the opener can make
any of the following bets: $2, $4, $5, $6, or $7.
