What is the Hi-Lo running count above?
If this was the first deal out of a single-deck game1)It really can’t be a single deck since I noticed “two” 2 of clubs, what is the true count?
CLICK ANSWER 16 cards were played So… +3 / (2/3) = (+3×3)/2 = +4.5
So… 52-16 = 36 cards left*
* One of these cards is the burn card
So… 36 cards is about 2/3 deck.
