If you choose to learn more that you already know that the gain is minimal, but I would advise learning indices that take place at high counts. (things like double A8 vs 4, stand 16 vs 8, and 15 vs 9, ect) While the gain is minimal, you have larger bets out at the time making them more valuable.
Thanks -- right now my approach is to learn the ~75 or so that occur from -1 to +10, as that covers ~99% of my play. I figured I should learn them in order of importance... but if it's only 75, I could just learn them all. Probably cover the splitting indexes last, as they come up extremely infrequently.
On the site (Dead link: http://www.GameMasterOnline.com), 50 indexes are used, though I am not sure how he determined which 50 to implement...
