Card counting methods
  • I've been practicing BS for quite some time now, and I think that Im about ready to start learning card counting. The most popular system seems to be High/low. But it's very overwhelming. I don't see it possible for me keep track of an entire shoe without messing up, let alone keep track without the casino knowing that Im counting. My question is: Since the high/low method is aimed at keeping track of how many high cards are left in a deck, is there a simpler method that only counts the high cards instead of adding an subtracting every single card? I'd like to learn a simple method, then ease my way into learning high/low.

    most counting systems count high and low cards differently, since that is where our advantage comes from. You might look at the OPP count which is much easier (and which gives you much less advantage than hi-lo also) to learn. However, you might also look at the KO unbalanced count which is easier and eliminates the true-count conversion if that gives you problems...

    there's no easy way to beat blackjack. it will take some work, and a lot of practice.
  • OPP or KISS are very simple entry ways into the world of card counting.It seems what you really need is just confidence.Kiss might be the way to go,because as soon as you handle the baby steps of KISS 1,you can move up by degrees to the advanced KISS 3.
    CC is more about learning your abilities and trusting in them than anything else.
