The balanced card counting system is more different than compared to the unbalanced card counting system. One major difference is that the balanced card counting systems convert the Running Count to True count in order to give out better approximations.
On the other hand, the unbalanced card counting systems do not need to need conversion of the Running Count (RC) to True Count (TC). However, both levels of card counting deliver similar results but the balanced card counting systems tends top give out other indications such as when to take insurance, when to surrender and the possibilities of getting a blackjack.
In balanced card counting systems, the True Count (TC) is derived by Dividing the Runing Count (RC) over the number of decks used in the variation.
True Count (TC) = Running Count / Number of Decks In Use
Not only does the balanced Card counting system make use of the True Count (TC), it also makes use of the Betting Correlation, Insurance Correlation and many others. Therefore, depending on the balanced system you employ.
We will look at two balance card-counting systems – The Hi-Lo Card Count and the Revere Point Card Count
The Hi-Lo Card Count assigns the following point values
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 A
+1 +1 +1 +1 +1 0 0 0 -1 -1
Here we can see that the Hi-Lo card count is similar to the unbalanced KO Card count. The major difference is that it eliminates the 7 from the count at which it is assigned a neutral value causing no effect to the running count. The Hi-Lo Card count converts the Running Count (RC) to True Count (TC) by dividing the RC over the number of decks used in that particular variation.
Therefore, the Hi-lo card count is a step ahead for beginners who need to take the unbalanced card counting techniques to another level.
The Revere Point Card Count is a balanced card counting system that is more complex than compared to the Hi-Lo card count. However, its results are better and the user has a greater chance of winning a larger portion during game play.
The point values are as follows
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 A
+1 +2 +2 +2 +2 +1 0 0 -2 -2
The Revere Point card count assigns a point value of -2 to all high cards and a point value of +1 and +2 to low cards. The 7 is included in the running count and the neutral cards are 8 and 9. During game play, other players tend to use a side count for the Aces at which if a certain number of aces have been dealt on the board, the player is able to depict whether the dealer is holding a blackjack or not at which s/he can decide to take insurance.
