8 hands at $70 each is $560 in action, but 5 hands
at $100 each is only $500. The more players there
are at the table, the more there is to be gained
by going to two hands with positive counts! And
if you go to three hands, then $60 each rather than
one $100 wager is a good number.
If you're playing heads up though, stay with just
one hand through your strong counts! Multiple hands
here will use up more cards per dollar bet -- and
you don't want to do that. Finally, remember this.
On a "plus" count, if it appears the last
round is coming up, you should go to 2 or even 3
hands regardless of the number of players! That's
because you'll now be sucking an extra hand or two
out of the pack that you never would have gotten.
