What system are you using? This is why CVCX is handy. You could just make the indexes yourself and have them form-fitted to your style of play.

Oh interesting, I thought CVCX was mostly for betting. I know basic strategy and can count pretty well but im knowingly still gambling since im not willing to commit a bankroll large enough for big bet spreads and just playing for fun. I do want to play correctly tho which is why I was searching online for resources on deviations for the house rules I play in. Closest thing I’ve found so far is https://www.blackjackinfo.com/files/Blackjack-School/DD-BS-Variations.htm (no DAS no surrender) but the basic strategy alone is relatively different so I’m stuck. I’ll have to keep looking or see if CVCX is worth buying for where I’m at right now.

CVCX is dirt cheap for what you get. If you cannot afford it, or don't think it's worth the expense, then IMHO you shouldn't be in the game.


rocketnurse

Thanks for the input, I would agree if I was attempting to get EV. I’m just playing for fun - can afford to lose what I gamble but still want to minimize losses.


ultroulcomp

Why do you want deviations if you aren't looking for EV. Doesn't make sense.


rocketnurse

I’m mostly flat betting with max bet at 2-3 of my betting units when count is high enough, which I’d assume doesn’t generate relevant EV. I still want to minimize my losses although my main goal is to have fun.


ultroulcomp

Seems like a lot of work just to reduce your loses, when less work is required to have a winning game.


rocketnurse

Haha looks like it. Unfortunately a winning game w low risk requires committing a large enough bankroll


ultroulcomp

Your statement makes no sense, By playing a losing game you are effectively just giving your money to the casino anyway.

I’m not a true AP so don’t know the stats but No doubling after a split would instinctively feel like a deal breaker to me. Can’t tell you how many sessions have come down to a few big split/double/doubles!! Anyone know the impact on house edge for no splitting after doubles?

Not a ton, actually! Using these rules: Double Deck, 3:2 BJ, H17, No RSA, No Surrender House Edge allowing DAS: .45688% House Edge not allowing DAS: .60225% Two tenths of a percent house edge swing, which is why Reno (most casinos there have no DAS, but allow RSA) still works for counters. The biggest hit is in EV. Now if it was 6:5, then it would be utterly terrible. Combined that makes the house edge an unbearable **1.97575%!**

Thank you

About 0.13% from memory. Eg. If the casino has a 0.5% advantage then that number goes to about 0.63% with nDAS.

Sorry i am a newbie let me ask you this... CVCX gives you the deviations based on game rules and your counting strategy? and it also calculates betting size? If it is so, its an amazing software, i thought all it did was betting size stuff based on rules.


bejammin075

You can put in the system tags of any card counting system you want, or invent your own. You can simulate the indexes based on how you like to personally do the calculations, the specific rules, conditions, penetration, etc. There's a ton of stuff you can do with it.


QuasarAfterLife

Mate thanks for the reply, one last question i swear. After i calculate the indexes... can the software find the 20 most important deviations to learn for example? I don't think the software can automatically give you the deviations in order of importance, or can it?


bejammin075

You can find that elsewhere, it will be nearly the same list for any system, then you can decide how many you want to learn.
