    MGP's BJCA Combinatorial Analyzer freeware release

    Hi all, I just made my source code available on github: https://github.com/mustgoplay/MGPs-BJ-CA Enjoy. Sincerely, MGP

    More Optimal Split EVs

    CDPN in my CA accounts for however many N cards are removed as well as the P cards. I'd probably name yours CDPN1x :)

    Surrender loses 0.4 bet in stead of half bet

    Software update with new split EVs

    If you look at how I calculate splits. CDPN not only removes P cards but also N cards before calculating the optimal strategy. It requires the use of burn card calcs.

    Software update with new split EVs

    If you have an old Excel 2003 my program should list every exception including post-split exceptions. You can also see them in the analysis I believe. There shouldn't be any differences with CDZ. It's simply the CD strat applied to all post-split hands.

    Software update with new split EVs

    It's not exactly fixed. To calculate CDP do the following: 1) Calculate the CD strategy for a full shoe. 2) Calculate the CD strategy with 1 P card removed 3) Repeat 2 for up to 3 P cards removed. 4) For each shoe state use the appropriate strategy with the correct number of paircards...

    Software update with new split EVs

    I reinstalled my program. It gives the same EV's that k_c's does for upcard 10. I think it's having a problem with the ev's for the other hands since the ev is > 1. I don't know why that would be the case for splits only but my guess is that somewhere in the calcs it's trying to divide by 0...

    Software update with new split EVs

    If you want more decimals then either click on the strategy box and copy paste the value (although it will only show the highest split level for that) or output to Excel 2003 and copy from the spreadsheet (if you can get it to work).

    Software update with new split EVs

    Mine will be exact so you should run that shoe on mine. My hard disk crashed at home and I don't have access at work.

    Software update with new split EVs

    That makes sense now. I didn't post my code because I program in spaghetti language and I wasn't about to open up the can of worms involved in trying to explain it. I also didn't take the time to write out a detailed help file but I assume it's clear enough from the GUI that it doesn't need...

    Software update with new split EVs

    I think GUI's are nice. You can have multiple results window open with my program. It also makes understanding the information easier if it's displayed properly.

    Software update with new split EVs

    If you're not including this time then all split calcs are trivial with respect to time and any comparisons are meaningless. The only thing that matters is how many dealer probs are needed. With any recursive method, you are calculating not only the dealer probs for EV(x)'s but also for...

    Software update with new split EVs

    If you really want the fastest splits besides T Hoppers, I believe mine will win. I don't know how to isolate it though. Eric, you could probably easily modify your program to handle it though. All you need to do is for any hand that is actually possible, calculate the probs for any shoe...

    Calculating Split EVs Exactly

    Adjusting for BBO/OBBO/Australian OBBO You need to keep track of the possiblity of busting when the dealer has an upcard of Ace/Ten and then adjust accordingly. I did this a long time ago and it's the comments in my code so I can't explain right now more than what's below: BBO =...
