Thanks for the help, I will still probably get the book and take a look anyway.

Unfortunately I only have 4 deck games here.

I'm wondering, could this technique make those 1 deck BJ pays 6:5 advantageous for counters?

Not as advantegous as 3 to 2 blackjacks!

Probably not, though AutoMonk says that a 1-20 spread gives the 6:5 games an acceptable SCORE. And 6:5 games are great for frontloading (holecard play). zg

I think it is a fantastic book. It opened my eyes to new methods of finding and exploiting weak shuffles. The ace tracking that ZG described is only one part of the book. It also shows other ways to recognize and take advantage of a weak shuffle like zone tracking, uneven packet distributions, and others. There is also a section on methods to improve your accuracy. The book includes a huge list of resources for further reading and covers the history of card location. There are also chapters on memorization techniques

It does contain errors in the bet sizing chapter (from what I am told) but all of the techniques discussed are solid.

The book is of little use IMO. zg

is ace tracking and key carding possible with an automatic shuffle machine?

No, because unlike hand shuffles there is no 'riffle' - cards are inserted randomly into the pack ustilizing an algorithm. zg
