Default Hole carding sim

I just ran a hole carding sim on CVData, for 6dk, h17,das, with 100% readability. And using the hole card strategy provided in CVData. According to the sim, my total bet advantage is 3.6% rounded. Does this sound correct? I just assumed the edge would much be higher.

I adjusted making the correct insurance bet to 75% accurate. This brought the TBA up to 6.95%

The HC strategy included in CVData is a cover strategy.

I wouldn't give up EV on your insurance bet, personally. That's a 100% play. Not splitting tens, not doubling 8 or 9 or soft vs. big upcards, hitting 12 and 13 vs. big upcards, and standing on 15-16 vs. small upcards are better cover.

Also, if you have late surrender, this is worth WAY more, and gives you a lot more room for cover.

You'll draw a lot of attention to yourself taking perfect insurance.
