    Default Is assigning the 2 a tag really necessary?

    Don S. SCORE in sims indicate the 2 is somewhat insignificant. What are you thoughts regarding the EOR for the 2?

    Mr Griffin assigned the 2 an EOR of .38. He assigned the 7 an EOR .28. That is only a difference of .1.

    My understanding is his study started with a single deck of cards. But I do not know what tools he had to work with back in the 70's. Could he have made a mistake?

    SCORE certainly suggests a discrepancy in single deck straight up sims. Give the 8 a value other than 0? SCORE suffers.
    Make the 7 and 2 the same value? SCORE suffers. Give the 2 more value than the 7. SCORE really suffers.

    Give the 7 more value than the 2. SCORE improves. Reducing the 2 to 0 in Wong Halves and making the 7 a 1? SCORE soars.

    So in Hilo. The 2 is increased to reflect the same value as the 5. The 7 drops all the way to 0. For simplicity purposes? Yet we have self professed "Pro's" killing casinos with poor deck compositions? Hmmmm. I don't think so scooter.

    They count some of the cards some of the time on as many tables as they can see. 6 decks coming out of a shoe. C'mon maaaan.

    I count all but one card in one deck at one table all the time. I see every card played. Quite often, it's the one I don't allow for that bites me in the ass.
