Card Counting- The Hi-Opt II System

The Hi-Opt II Counting Strategy

Level of difficulty: 2

The Hi-Opt II is another variation of the Hi-Lo system. It will be hard at first getting used to this if you have been using the Hi-Lo for a long time but it will happen. If you are just learning to count then this is the system I would recommend. It is more powerful in terms of accuracy, which means more money for you in the long run. To make this system even better you could keep a side count of how many Aces have been dealt.

Start practicing this system by flipping through a deck of cards. Do this one hundred times a day. Once you start to get real good you will be able to count two cards at the same time. This will save you a ton of mental energy.

Point Values Explained

Low Cards- 2, 3, and 7 have a value of +1. Now this is where it gets tricky because 4, 5, and 6 have a value of +2. This is the part that takes some getting used to.

High Cards- Like most card counting strategies, all 10 valued cards are counted as -1.

Neutral Cards- The neutral cards in the Hi Opt II are Ace, 8, 9.
