Blackjack Counters

Michael Konik
From the Print Edition:
Rush Limbaugh, Spring 94

(continued from page 1)

The "Hi-Opt I" count. Threes, fours, fives and sixes are assigned a plus one value, tens a minus one; and aces, deuces, sevens, eights and nines are counted as zero. Like the "Hi-Lo" count, a positive count of two or more often indicates an edge for the bettor.

For more detailed explanations of card-counting systems, books like Million Dollar Blackjack by Ken Uston, Blackbelt in Blackjack by Arnold Snyder and Blackjack for Blood by Bryce Carlson are available from the Gambler's Book Club in Las Vegas. Telephone: (800) 522-1777.
