Counting Cards with the Hi-Opt 1 and Hi-Opt 2 Systems – How to Count Cards in Blackjack


Welcome to this GamblingSites.org how-to video. Today, we’re focusing on another system
for counting cards in blackjack… the “Hi-Opt 1” and “Hi-Opt 2” systems. This video will describe the system in detail
and help you decide if it might be the right one for you. If you haven’t watched our introductory
videos into Card Counting, make sure you watch those first before advancing here. These systems ARE separate systems, but are
related enough to each other that we feel they’re best discussed in a single video. The “Hi-Opt 1” system is a simple, single-level,
balanced card counting system. It’s intended to be as easy to use as the
Hi-Lo system while also being more accurate. One way that this system is more accurate
and more powerful than the Hi-Lo system is that it keeps a side count of the number of
Aces left in the deck. This is also why it’s considered to be an
Intermediate-level system. Here’s the value of the cards in this system… All ten cards and face cards count as minus-1. … The only cards worth plus-1 are the 3’s,
4’s, 5’s and 6’s. … That’s it. All other cards, including the Aces, are worth
zero. This system actually deals with fewer cards
than the Hi-Lo system, if you don’t count the Aces. Keeping tabs on the Aces separately is a suggested
option, since the whole goal of counting cards is to maximize your wager when it’s the
most likely for you to be dealt a natural blackjack. The Hi-Opt 2 System is significantly harder
to use, but more accurate than the other version. This is a two-level system, which means that
there are two values to add and subtract by. That said, it is also a balanced system. This system is a proprietary system available
in the form of the Hi-Opt 2 Report. Here’s what the cards are valued at in this
system… Aces, 8’s and 9’s all count as zero. … Ten and face cards are all worth minus-2. … 2’s and 3’s are counted as plus-1. … 4’s and 5’s are counted as plus-2. … And 6’s and 7’s are counted as plus-1. The more intricate details of this system
are available by purchasing “The Hi-Opt 2 Report”. The “Hi-Opt” strategies are interesting
additions to the list of card counting systems available. The first is a system that’s easy and aimed
at players just starting to count cards, with the ability to become more powerful very quickly. The second is an advanced technique only available
by purchasing Lance Humble’s proprietary report. … We have plenty of additional videos and
