Blackjack Advanced Strategy CardsThe innovative Advanced Blackjack Strategy Cards from BlackjackInfo provide a first-ever pairing of the best possible basic strategies, with optimal card counting index numbers right on the card.

  • 1 Deck, Dealer Stands on all 17s
  • 1 Deck, Dealer Hits Soft 17
  • 2 Decks, Dealer Stands on all 17s
  • 2 Decks, Dealer Hits Soft 17
  • 4/6/8 Decks, Dealer Stands on all 17s

One card for each variation shows the card counting index numbers as a small printed number. A second “stealth” version of each card encodes the counting indexes using a series of black dots in a clock-face pattern.

Features:

  • Perfect basic strategy for each game
  • Optimized Hi-Lo card counting index numbers from -5 to +5
  • Pocket size cards for easy use at the casino table.
  • Solid plastic for durability, not cheap laminated cards.

Instructions

These cards include complete basic strategy information like our Basic Strategy Card products. For an explanation of how to read the basic strategy portion of the cards, you can refer to the instructions for our basic strategy cards.

The instructions here cover only the advanced features of the card set, the Hi-Lo card counting index numbers.

For those users who already understand what the Hi-Lo index numbers mean, we will begin with an illustration of how the indexes are represented on the cards. Don’t worry, I’ll explain how to use the numbers in a moment.

The Numeric Version

In the numeric index version of each card, the Hi-Lo card counting index for each decision is printed in the bottom right corner of each square. For example, this section of the card shows player hands of hard 9 vs a dealer 2 through 6.

With 9 vs dealer 2, the basic strategy is to Hit and the Hi-Lo index number is +1. (This means that you should double if the current true count is +1 or higher, and hit otherwise. I’ll give you more detail on how to use the numbers below.)

With 9 vs dealer 3, 4, and 5, the basic strategy is to double, and the index numbers are -1, -3, and -4 respectively.

With 9 vs 6, the basic strategy is to double and there is no index number shown because the index would be less than -5, the lowest index shown on the cards.

The Stealth Version

If you are concerned about using the cards with printed index numbers in the casino, you can use the “stealth” version of each card instead, which encodes the card counting index numbers using a series of black dots in a clockface pattern.

Each index from -5 to +5 is represented by a different position in the decision square. A black dot at the center top of the square represents an index of zero. As you move from zero in a clockwise direction, the indexes increase from +1 to +5. As you move counter-clockwise from zero, the indexes decrease from -1 to -5. Here’s a map of the index values:

Here is the same example of a hard 9 vs a dealer 2-6:

The index values are the same as before: +1, -1, -3, -4, and none.

In addition to concealing the nature of the cards, this visual representation can also serve as a useful memory aid.

If you already know how to use index numbers with the Hi-Lo count, you’re all set. For those of you that need some help understanding what this all means, please read on.

Introduction to Card Counting with the Hi-Lo System

Card counting exploits the fact that small cards are bad for the player while ten-value cards and Aces are favorable for the player. The popular Hi-Lo count allows a player to track whether the remaining deck has more or fewer high cards left than usual. As cards are dealt in the game, the player keeps a running plus/minus count using the following card values:

Card values 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are counted as +1.
Card values T, J, Q, K, and Ace are counted as -1.
Card values 7, 8, and 9 are ignored.

You begin the count after each shuffle with a running count of zero, and add or subtract as cards are dealt or revealed.

Any time your running count is positive, the remaining deck has more high cards left than low cards. (That’s good!) Any time your running count is negative, the remaining deck has an excess of small cards. (That’s bad.)

Before you can use the count to make a betting or playing decision, there is one more important step. You must convert your running count into the current “true” count, by dividing it by the number of unseen decks left in the shoe.

A running count of +6 is much more meaningful if only one deck remains in the six-deck shoe than if we are only a hand or two into a freshly shuffled six decks. That is why the true count conversion is important. In the case where only one deck remains, the running count of +6 divided by 1 deck remaining yields a true count of +6. In the case where nearly all of six decks remains in the shoe, the same +6 running count becomes a true count of just over +1.

By betting more in plus situations and as little as possible in minus situations, a player can swing the odds of the game into his favor and have a long-term positive advantage over the casino.

What are Hi-Lo Index Numbers?

Most of the benefit of card counting comes from betting more when the deck is favorable. However, since you know something about the composition of the remaining deck, you can also use that information to change your playing strategy when appropriate. For example, let’s say you have a hand of (Ten, 2) and the dealer has a 2 showing. Basic strategy says that you should hit 12v2.

If there are enough extra high cards in the remaining decks, it becomes better to stand with 12v2. Just how many “extra” high cards are “enough”? That’s where index numbers come in. If the Hi-Lo true count is +3 or higher, you should stand with 12v2 instead of hitting it. If the Hi-Lo true count is +2 or lower then you should hit 12v2, just like normal basic strategy says.

The “+3” in this case is an “index number”, which dictates the point at which the best playing strategy for a specific decision changes.

    • Because the deck is a finite system all permutations can be examined and perfect probabilities can be established.
      What comes next is figuring out how the probabilities change based on the cards that are played and can be thought of us not in the immediate set of cards.
      Knowing how the probability changes gives you an advantage over Dealers who are not also counting cards.
