The main ideology behind Hi-Lo card counting process is to provide each card a worth in set of 3's. The value of cards between 2 to 6 is +1, the value of cards between 7 to 9 is 0 and the value of cards between 10 - A is -1.

The value of adding the entire card deck is 0 if calculated according the stated values. This counting method informs you; whether low cards or high cards are remaining. More face cards, 10's and aces are remaining of your value is high and you are halfway through the deck and vice-versa. If more high cards are available then the player has an advantage and if more low cards are remaining then the dealer has the advantage.

Uston SS

This is an advanced counting process and has higher winning rate. The ideology of this system is same as basic hi-lo counting process; but it provides 6 values instead of 3. The cards with a face value of (2, 4 and 6) equal to 2, 5 equals to 3, 7is 1, 8 is 0, 9 is -1 and cards between 10 to A value -2. The difficult part of this strategy is that it is very hard to memorize the card's value.

Starters should start card counting with the Hi-Lo method and then they should move to side counts method. Once the player has expertise on these two methods; then he should go for the Uston SS method.
