Also, the Theory of Blackjack by the late Peter Griffin is an amazing resource for further study once you've gotten some experience.

Default thanks

awesome thanks guys. My spreadsheet has a table with the TC/percentage and I'll also look into the distribution of hands, im planning on going to pick up a load of these books soon.

UK-21,

Thanks for the info on my betting spread , how did you calculate the recommend bet spread and how much of a percentage advantage it would get?

Grant,

A lot of information must be taken into consideration when working out advantage, E.V, SD etc..

I recommend going to Blackjackforumonline.com and downloading the 'powersim' software to evaluate your games. Unfotunately this software does not take into account the No Insurance rule here in Britain, so SIM results will be overly optimistic.

A 1-10 spread will suffice, however I use a much larger spread at the expense of increased variance.

A tip: Value does not necessarily lie in just a number or percentage...
Something to think about if you continue to play seriously.

You build your spreadsheet and work it out.
