I am learning the I-18 and the fab-4 index values (for h17 games since they are most common in my area) and have a few questions:
Why does I-18 say I should stand on 16 v. 10 if TC=0, while basic strategy for 16 v. 10 says I should surrender (or hit if surrender is not available)?
Why does 15 v. 10 say to surrender at TC=0, but 15 v. 10 also says to stand at TC=4. What should I do, for example, if TC=5 and surrender IS available? Should I surrender, or should I stand on this hand?
Is there a hierarchy for the index values? i.e. do the surrender indices supercede the hit/stand indices (thereby ignoring the hit/stand indices if surrender is available)?
Thanks in advance for your response.
