Hey guys, I'm new this is my first thread
I have a few queries about the I18

How much of an advantage does it give you if you follow the deviations?

Is there anywhere I can find what you exactly need to do
Like 10 vs 10 with a count of 4, what do you do? Double down?

Also, can you explain the advantage of not hitting a 15 vs 10 with a count of 4. Surely even if you stick because a 10 card is likely to come and bust you, the dealer will get that 10 card anyway and make a twenty (European 'no hole card' rules)

Thanks

For 6 decks, about 0.2%; more for double/single deck games.

(Going from memory here - someone will correct me if I'm wrong.)

Index tables. See any blackjack book which discusses the system you're interested in.

15v10 is a loser hand either way. In high enough counts, you lose less often if you stand against a 10, but you'll still lose more than half the time.
