The reKO Blackjack Strategy (99.44% Pure)

The KO Strategy is one of the very easiest Blackjack card counting strategies, contained in the book Knock-Out Blackjack-The Easiest Card Counting System Ever Devised by Olaf Vancura and Ken Fuchs. reKO (ridiculously easy KO) is a substantially simplified version. It will be easier for most people because, unlike KO, it has only one index value for all indexes and the same indexes and value for double deck and six decks. Thus less memorization is required. Flashcards are often used to memorize indexes. But a set of reKO flashcards would all have +2 on them. I have also included simplified betting ramps. This strategy performs nearly identically to KO. Note: This is a very brief description designed for those that already understand card counting. There is a much fuller description in my free, online book Modern Blackjack. For those interested, the strategy is as follows:

Card Counting Tags

Cards 2-7: +1, 8 & 9: 0, Ten & Ace: -1

The Initial Running Counts are:

  • Single Deck: -1
  • Double Deck: -5
  • Six Decks: -20
  • Eight Decks: -27

Indexes

Thanks to Cacarulo for help in selecting the index set
  • Insurance
  • 16vT
  • 15vT
  • 12v2
  • 12v3
  • 12v4
  • 11vA
  • 10vA
  • 10vT
  • 9v2
  • 9v7
  • 8v5
  • 8v6
  • A8v5
  • A8v6

    Surrender

  • 15v9
  • 15vA
  • 8, 8vT
  • 14vT (includes 7, 7vT)

    All indexes are the same for double deck or six decks: +2. Another way of looking at it is using two basic strategies. Use one basic strategy for running counts up to +1. Then a different strategy for +2 and above.

    Single Deck

    Single deck requires adding five additional indexes. However, they are still all +2.

  • 13v2
  • 13v3
  • 12v5
  • 12v6
  • A6v2
  • Eight Decks

    Eight decks removes one index. They are still all +2. Remove the following:

Suggested Betting Ramps

These tables are bets for each running count. You need to decide your own unit size and maximum bet and level off your betting at that point. Note: These schedules require a fairly large bankroll - at least $10, 000 for a reasonable risk.
