Since iPhone apps and Xcode are the buzz words of the week here’s an idea and even a mock-up for you. The idea is a training app for counting cards using the hi/low method. Wouldn’t you like to train your mind to count cards on your iPhone? Of course you would, so just nod and continue reading.
How does card counting work? Each card has a numeric value. Keep a running tally of the sum of the values as the cards come up. Here are the values:
2, 3, 4, 5, 6 (small cards)…………………. +1
7, 8, 9 (neutral cards)……………………….. 0
10, J, Q, K, Ace (big cards)……………….. -1
How app works:
The app shuffles the decks and shows the cards. It keeps track of the count. At any time the user can stop to see the actual and true counts that the app has tracked, they will compare these to their counts. Restart the game anytime.
There are actually two methods of counting cards: The running count which I just explained and the true count. True count is running count divide by the number of decks left in the shoe.
