I’ll probably get around to fully analyzing the Triple Attack game myself. It should be fairly simple, then I can calculate the EORs, and do a better job of describing the counting edge on the game.

]]>His strategy for Spanish 21 calls for doubling against a dealer 8 and below – and both games use a Spanish deck and employ the 6 card Charlie rule.

Hmm. I may have to post this question on his boards.

]]>Thanks for the tip on the game, I never heard of it before. I’ll have to run the EORs when I get a chance!

]]>I would imagine a simple Hi-Low approach would be effective – but I’m not quite sure why Aces are so much more powerful in the Triple Attack version.

]]>The “aces seen” starts off at zero for a new shoe, but the aceCount = expectedAces – seenAces. The expectedAces is the average number of aces dealt at a given penetration of a shoe. For example, at the start of an 8 deck shoe, the expectedAces is 0, as is the seenAces. After the first 2 decks are dealt, the expectedAces is 8, and the seenAces is the number of actual aces you observed dealt. A better analysis would use a “true excess Ace count” = (expectedAces – seenAces)/decksRemaining, but I didn’t know counters used “true counts” when I posted this.

All this might not matter to you; Barona removed this game a few months ago, and replaced it with Blackjack Switch.

]]>Stephen,

Am I correct in assuming that each shoe in Triple Attack BJ starts with a zero, if doing the ace count? Zero meaning that each deck has 4 aces.

]]>starting point. But of course, it would be a lot harder. ]]>

Yes , the other page. The frequency vs EV graphs at . The sum of all frequencies is one. Both colors on each graphs can not be correct. The sum of the frequencies of the triple attack EVs looks to be 3 times or more the sum of the frequencies of regular blackjack EVs at both penetration levels that are graphed. They must both equal one. What am I missing? This is pretty basic frequency knowledge.

]]>There are no frequency distribution graphs on this page. Are you talking about graphs on other pages? The graphs on this page show the relationship between the Ace count and EV; there are no frequencies here.
