TT against a 6, ... Under classical calculation [the High-Low index is] 4.3.

By refraining from splitting you increase the number of hands dealt under current shuffle. ... By splitting you pull out 2 cards, about 6 cards are pulled out at 1 box, so you'll play 1/3 of a hand less.

EV is 2.8% under the TC of +5. So, the loss is 2.8/3=0.93%. If we consider it, the splitting index for TT against a 6 is abot 4.7.

If you want to see a bigger effect, consider a situation that is insensitive to the index, like splitting 2's vs. 2. In that case the change is EV from splitting is less than 1% per truecount, so you would change the index by more than a point.
