Card Counting Strategies

Hi-Lo:
True count: divide “running count” value by # of decks
Running count: from 2 to 6 = add +1; 7,8,9 will give 0;
cards from 10 to King subtract -1

K-O Strategy:
From 2 to 7 = add +1; 7,8,9 will give 0; cards from 10 to Ace subtract -1

Hi-Opt 1 strategy:
From 3 to 6 = add +1; 2,7,8,9 and Ace will give 0; cards from 10 to King subtract -1

Hi-Opt 2 strategy:
2,3,6,7 will give +1; 4 and 5 add +2; 8 and 9 give nothing; from 10 to King subtract -2
Aces are counting separately, not depending on main count.
