Hello All,

I have been working on memorizing basic strategy with the Sweet 16 Index. I have been looking at the Charts in Casino Verite and the paper by Ken Fuchs and Olaf Vancura called "A Study of Index Rounding In Card Counting," which I found in a book called "Finding the Edge: Mathematical Analysis of Casino Games."

The book I found here: http://books.google.com/books?id=UGX...indice&f=false

On page 76 of the book/paper is given a Table of the Hi-Lo Sweet 16 - which is what I am trying to learn. However I notice that there are some differences between what is shown in this table and what is shown in the Casino Verite's tables. The differences are 1) 13 vs. 3 is given a -1 index in the paper and is shown as a non-decisive stand in the Verite software. 2) 12 vs. 5 is given an index of -1 in the paper and is also a non-decisive stand in the software. 3) 12 vs. 6 is given an index of 0 (zero) in the paper and an index of -1 in the software.

First, I am wondering why there are differences between the software and what is shown in the book's list? Second, I notice that in the software I see only 13 decisions. Is this because the other three are insurance decisions (have not been looking at insurance decisions yet)? And third, what are the correct indices for these three decisions? My assumption would be the software is correct but you know what they say about assumptions.

Thanks
