Although I'm still learning HiLo primarily for 6-deck games, I couldn't resist playing this single-deck pitch game (S17, DAS, DOA, RSA I believe). A natural pays 6:5 but the penetration was to the last card!!! The temptation was too much; I took the bait (for practice, leastways). I either dropped or got off the count several times, and missed a few variations when called for. This was my first (unplanned) venture into card counting. Often, my hands were shaking - remember those days? I was soon up about 8 units but ended up down 12 units after about 2 hours play. I had a ball...is that against any rules? (OK, losing wasn't fun!) Once home I was unable to answer this question from my literature and was hoping you guys might advise me...Am I'm wasting my time on this game?
