    Here is the DD count I personally use which out-performs HI-OPT II by a decent amount.

    +1 +2 +2 +3 +2 +1 0 0 -3 +1
    Insurance = +6

    [QUOTE=Svengarlicky;230757]Just use Zen/Omega as described by Bryce Carlson but assign aces as +1. It will invariably emerge as unbalanced but it is nevertheless a very strong count.

    I play DD D9 w/80pc pen and DD w/50pc. Use different betting structures on each.

    Aces are assigned -3 in a side count. This count is superlative for the LL side bet.

    Although it's not as strong as a specialized LL count, it does close the gap to give you the best of both worlds. The good news is that it emerges as balanced.

    The problem with the current edition of Blackbelt is that ZEN is constrained to a count-per-1/4D.
    The ZEN I was describing above is a count-per-deck, which I prefer

    There is some controversy surrounding the above -
