Is the Hi Opt 1 with Ace side count a good count? I play mainly DD games. Thanks, phill

is a rather weak count. If you want to stay with a 1 level count use HiLo or Red7 or something more powerful but not much more difficult.
or change to HiOpt2 or Zen, but with DD a one level count should be powerful enough with good rules and good pen.

IMHO, it works fine at DD, spread 1-6, but it's true effectiveness comes from the Ace side count and knowing the I-18 equivilent indices.

If your going to Ace side count, I`d recommend balancing it with a count of 2`s (+1).
You will then have two counts, one your regular Hi-Opt, and the second your Ace/Deuce count.
Add the two counts together for betting, doubling down on hard 9 and 10, and splitting 10`s.
Use the primary count for insurance and playing decisions.
Essentially, your creating a hi-low count for betting with a BC of .962
While retaining the Hi-Opt`s superior PE and IC of .609 and .867, respectively.
If you need more info, drop by www.rge21.com and read, "Can Side Counting make you a SUPER COUNTER?" It`s in the free library.
(p.s. Hi Opt`s single parameter, ace adjustment raises the BC to .949 from about .88 without the ace count.)
(p.p.s. I think I need to get a life...)
