but if you want to add even more to your KO count, learn how to play indices according to the depth! For example, on which running count should you surrender 14 against a Ten? that depends to the deck penetration, on the first deck it is -3 but on the 4th deck +1
Insurance is taken at +3 in average, but in the first deck you should take on 0
Where can you find that information? on this book: "Modern Blackjack" Vol. 1 by Norm, page 324
Also remember that Mr Dravot has customized his count starting from 0, therefore if you are using the settings of the original KO method, you must recalculate advantage points accordingly. for example, in 6-deck, your old -20 Initial running count will equal his 0
Then I read The Color of Blackjack (Paperback) by Daniel Dravot, which uses KO to explain his system and it blew me away. No division required but lets one know where they are based upon how many cards have been dealt by just eyeballing the discard try.
You'll have to learn KO 1st, get it down good and then move into Daniels book. You will see the beauty of what he has put together in a few pages that need very little explanation.

the illustrations are exceptionaly well done for a blackjack book. The design of the basic strategy chart is the best I have ever seen, and the explanation of true knockout count represents a real advance in card counting that can serve the nonprofessional counter very well indeed. Search [...]---and then Buy the Book!
You want to card count? You think it's hard? To bad, it is! You want a book that will make it easy, you found it.
I have bought many books and eventually settled on the KO system for its strength and ease. I always knew I was missing some power but I could not deal with that god-awful True-Count conversion. Then two months ago I stumbled across "The Color of Blackjack". It gives you the extra power of TKO without that hateful formula. This book cuts out the fat and tells you how to make money.
Don't get me wrong books like Knock-Out Blackjack are still great but I now consider them supplements to Dravot's book. Those books only explain concepts with no game play, Dravot teaches you to break the bank.
I only play 6 deck shoes so I learned his graphs ice cold, as well as betting ramps. For beginners he even has a unique way of teaching basic strategy which you can memorize in 10 minutes.
