CAC2 Blackjack Card Counting Strategy

Note from the site admin: Much has occurred in the blackjack world since Dr. Edward Thorp got the ball rolling with Beat the Dealer over a half century ago; and Dr. Peter Griffin released his deep dive into the math with The Theory of Blackjack. Many researchers since have built upon the shoulders of these giants with many improvements. But, neither has the game stood still. As the game changes, it is up to the loyal opposition, the advantage players, to keep pace. Most everyone who has been in the field for a significant period knows of Cacarulo’s excellent research in the field.  In this effort, the assumptions and conclusions of the past have been revisited based on the game as it exists today. Combining this new research with the advantages of far faster computers and modern computational techniques, a superior strategy is constructed, which is offered for sale here. Below find the overview by Cac.

I am excited to share with you the birth of a revolutionary new card counting system. After growing tired of the same old systems, I have dedicated years of research to developing a simple, yet powerful system that surpasses all known ace-reckoned and balanced systems in terms of SCORE. In collaboration with Zenfighter, we have created a new approach for calculating Playing Efficiency (PE) and Betting Efficiency (BE), as the existing methods were based on single deck (SD) and less relevant plays in today’s blackjack landscape. Our focus has always been on shoes, as they are the most common scenario in modern blackjack games.

During my research, I stumbled upon new tags with PE values that exceeded those of existing systems. I continued to push further, conducting hundreds of simulations to compare the SCOREs of each system, ultimately discovering a groundbreaking level-2 system that outperforms almost all commonly used systems, not only in 6D but also in 2D games. I have given the name CAC2 to this system, and it exhibits superior performance compared to other systems such as Zen, Halves, UAPC, RPC, EBJ2, RAPC, various level-3 and level-4 systems, and of course, all level-1 systems.

To provide a ranking based on the most common game conditions (6D, S17, DOA, DAS, SPA1, SPL3, NS, 4.5/6), I used the top 22 indices (R22) that generate the highest SCORE for a counting system. These R22 indices are a modified version of the well-known Catch-22 (C22) indices discussed in Don Schlesinger's book, Blackjack Attack, third edition. The only change I made in the R22 is replacing 10vT with TTv4, which results in a better SCORE for most card counting systems.

I am thrilled to present CAC2 as a significant advancement based on much more accurate EORs than those used in the past, which has allowed me to discover more relevant tags for modern play.
Naturally, before offering the system for sale, it underwent independent verification by renowned blackjack experts, including Norman Wattenberger. The table below was verified by him, and the results are as follows:

Kindly take note that the tags employed in the CAC2 system are not publicly accessible. This system is exclusively sold through Norm's website, which offers comprehensive statistics, comparisons, indices, betting ramps, and other relevant information. If you are interested in upgrading your current counting system to a more robust one, feel free to contact Norm for pricing details. In addition, if you acquire CAC2 and already utilize Casino Vérité (CV), Norm will provide you with a special download that includes all the necessary indices to complement CV Windows and mobile products. For those who opt to explore this novel counting system, I assure you that you will not be dissatisfied. I genuinely hope that you relish this new experience.


“The SCORE and the limits of your own abilities to use a counting system are like two supreme judges. There is no possible appeal against their final verdicts. Try this new one. An amazing combination of strength and moderate easiness of use.”

"My sense is that, henceforth, when players search for the very best, yet easy to master, point count available, they will turn to CAC2, confident in the knowledge that they are utilizing one of the strongest systems ever created."
--Don Schlesinger

CAC2 Enhanced

Privately, many individuals have inquired whether it's possible to extract more value from the system, either by employing a side count of aces or utilizing other cards. This inquiry has inspired me to compose a new comprehensive document outlining several techniques I have developed over the years to amplify
the effectiveness of CAC2—many of which are not found in any existing literature.

What's particularly intriguing is that there are numerous methods to enhance CAC2, and individuals can select the approach that best suits their preferences. Naturally, this document is tailored to those who have already acquired CAC2 and seek to optimize its potential.

Within the document, you'll find five meticulously explained techniques that elucidate various strategies for maintaining a side count of aces and other cards, along with explanations of the potential SCORES that can be achieved using these methods. Importantly, some of the concepts presented in the document
can be applied to other counting systems, not limited solely to CAC2.

Lastly, the document provides guidance on implementing several of these techniques within CVData. However, it's essential to emphasize that mastering the use of CAC2 is a prerequisite before employing any of these advanced strategies.
