Heading back to Nevada soon and want to share a new (?) strategy chart that combines basic with count adjustments for pitch games. Started with an Excel chart with the usual white = S (stand), blue = H (hit), red = D (double), and yellow = S (split). Then, in each cell is a smaller subcell with the index number of the adjustment and the subcell colored differently according to the previous scheme (to indicate the correct deviation). For example, in a normal basic strategy chart your nine vs. dealer seven would have that cell colored blue with an H in the middle. In this new chart the smaller cell replaces the H and has > +3 (or +4?) colored with red (the �double� color). All around the small cell, the color blue remains to indicate at less than true +3 you should just hit (since the H has been replaced by the �adjustment� cell).
I find this easily allows the use of around 40 or so index numbers, and greatly helps the memorization process. Has anyone ever heard of this type of chart, and does it sound like a useful tool for AP? I haven�t seen it in any books.
One problem is just what index numbers to use and of course they may change based upon single vs. double deck. Many books do not agree on the exact numbers to use, but are usually close.
