Card Counting Terminology
betting correlation
    a measure of how well the card weights correlate to the change in
the player's favorability when the cards are seen by the player and
removed from the deck. This gives an estimate of the accuracy of the
card counting system.
back counting
    counting cards and waiting for the count to become favorable before
sitting down to play. Usually done standing in back of the players.
balanced count
    any counting system that has a count starting at zero when the cards
are shuffled, and ending at zero when all cards in the deck(s) have been
exposed. Most counting systems use a balanced count.
bet spread
    the ratio between maximum and minimum bet size. A player who uses
$20 maximum bets and $5 minimum bets is using a 4:1 bet spread.
card weight
    the "value" assigned to each card face. This weight is added to the
"count" as each new card is exposed. Weights are usually small integer
values like -1, +1, or +2.
    a measure of how well the card weights correlate to the change in
the player's favorability for placing insurance bets. This gives an
estimate of the accuracy of the card counting system for predicting when
to take insurance.
    the number of cards that are dealt before the cards are shuffled.
Penetration is usually expressed as a percentage of the cards, as in
"75% penetration". Good penetration is extremely important to card counters.
playing efficiency
    effectiveness of strategy variations in tracking the optimal playing
strategy as the deck composition changes. Efficiency is given by E = AG
/ PG, where AG is the actual gain from making the strategy changes, and
PG is the possible gain that could be made by using a playing strategy
that is "computer perfect".
running count
    the total of the weights of all cards that have been exposed since
the cards were shuffled.
shuffle tracking
    a system to predict which sections of the deck/shoe will be
favorable to the player, based on the locations of favorable sections of
the previous deck/shoe, and on studying the method used to shuffle the
cards.
side count
    a count in addition to the "main" count, usually involving a single
card face, as in "ace side count".
strategy variations
    varying from basic strategy when the count indicates that it is
profitable to do so.
ten poor
    a deck that has a lower than average density of tens and face cards.
ten rich
    a deck that has a higher than average density of tens and face cards.
true count
    a count that is adjusted according to the number of undealt cards,
usually by dividing the running count by the number of undealt *decks*
(or half-decks).
unbalanced count
    any counting system that has a count that starts or ends on a
non-zero value (see "balanced count"). Red 7 is an example of an
unbalanced count.
wonging
    improving the player's edge by placing bets only when the count is
favorable for the player, and "sitting out" when the count is unfavorable.
