Hi-Opt I Count

Also called the Einstein Count.

The Hi-Opt card counting system was developed by Julian Braun and Lance Humble and published in Humble’s The World Greatest Blackjack Book. The Hi-Opt I counting system has 3-6 as +1 with 10’s and face cards as -1. The ace and all other cards are counted as 0. As a balanced system the running count must also be converted to the true count and the total value of a deck is 0.

The Hi-Opt I (Opt as in “optimal”) is usually used by advanced and professional players who want more accuracy then the Hi-Lo counting system can provide. The system is somewhat more difficult to learn, but most players find the extra effort worthwhile.
