Blackjack Hi-Opt 2 Count

The Hi-Opt 2 card counting system is even more advanced than the Hi-Opt 1 system as it demands a more detailed count and not every player can cope with this system. The actual edge it provides is not very significant from the first system, but it does make a difference if you use it correctly.

This system is for those who have been using the Hi-Opt 1 system for a long time and feel they need a higher edge.

Blackjack Hi-Opt 2 Count Strategy

Winning blackjackAs with all card-counting systems, this demands constant attention and focus on the table. However, as this one is a two level count, as some of the cards are valued as 2, this system is not recommended for the players that can lose concentration easily.

  • 2  and 3 — +1
  • 4 and 5 — +2
  • 6 and 7 — +1
  • 8 and 9 — 0
  • 10J, Q, K — −2

As you can see, special groups of cards include tens, which are valued as -2 and 4-5 that are values as +2. Aces according to this system are counted as 0, but players most of the time keep special track of them besides the main count. This may be done by placing a separate stack of chips (which could be too obvious) or by using toes.

The Hi-Opt 2 Counting system is a balanced one because when you are done counting all the cards you end up with 0.
