I have recently began studying blackjack and counting cards, but I haven't really seen an improvement in my playing or been able to count the cards fast enough for it to make any difference, although I can count a deck of 52 cards in under 25 seconds. The way I am counting is below:
2,3,4,5,6 are all +1
10,j,k,q are all -1
7,8,9 are all 0
When I finish counting 52 cards I always end up with 0 so no mistake on more than one deck I always have no problem finding the true count, but I still cant seem to do it in a game of black jack. Any help or anything I can do to make it easier to do in a game?
