This one is specific as to what it does. It will help improve your playing strategy as well your counting skills, betting strategy, and other various techniques.
I read many of the books, practiced with a deck of cards, studied the strategy tables, and pronounced myself ready for action. WRONG - in an actual Casino environment - I couldn't keep up with the Counts, or distractions - and just frustrated myself.
This software ties all of the various Blackjack Counting book strategies together in a way that lets you put into practice what you've been studying. You can select any of the major counting strategies, (including my current favorite - the KISS II methodology), and try them in a "real world" scenario. The Software keeps a running count, (and if applicable - a true count), along with you, and has all of the Advantage (enhanced) adjustments to basic strategy built right in. (Of course, if you just want to practice basic strategy - you can do that too).
Betting parameters can also be entered to adjust your wager based upon the respective counts - and again - warn you if you deviate from your settings.
Any errors that you might make in either Counting, Strategy, or Betting - will be immediately pointed out.
My only "concern" is that it appears that the Software has "streaks" built into it, (good and bad, but mostly bad).
By this I mean - it seems that no matter what you do - you just can't get "normal" statistical results. Playing perfect basic and "advanced stategy (based upon your counting method), you should be playing at a small, (albeit real) advantage, or at the very worst a small disadvantage.
At times, however --> the "house" appears to be receiving an excess of 20's and 21's, and receives 10's as an "up" card (A,K,Q,J,10) more than it should, (s/b +/- 30% - but at times tends toward > 40%) - while the player seems to be receiving an excess of 13, 14, and 15's (at times almost 40% of all dealt hands).
And don't get me started on how many times during these "bad" streaks you split A's, only to buy a baby, (2/3/4/5/6), while when you hit with 12 - a 10 is - well, almost assured.
Sorry --> deep breath - this isn't "normal" -- at least in light of what the statistics tell you should get.
Ok -> To be fair, at other times, it maybe swings back - and you gain the edge for a while.
But ==> Statistically - a player should win around 44% against the "house". There are sessions, however, (of > 300 hands), where the winning % is less than 30%.
Perhaps this can be written off as normal statistical variation, (as they like to say "standard deviation") - but I wonder. Is it maybe, just maybe - that a little "bad luck" is programmed in (just to get you used to the idea that it can happen). It also seems to happen a bit more when you start with an insufficient bankrool - based on your average bet -----> Hmmmmm.
This possible quirk aside - I would still highly recommend this product - especially for the drills, including Flashcard Drills - (testing strategy at various counts), Counting Drills, and whole table counting. Practicing with a deck of cards, and the "toy" Programs is one thing - but it doesn't prepare you for the Casino.
Bottom Line --> Highly recommended - much more realistic than other programs I have utilized.
