You add and reduce any number of hands in the middle of the shoe.
I'm newer to counting and using the hi/lo system. Been putting in some sessions and trying to figure out how to fully take advantage of this play. When the count was >+4 I would go from one hand to two at two units each.
I got no heat during the 6 hour session.
4:1 is too small a spread for double deck. You're not going to do much better than break even. I would go to 2 x 2 units at + 2, or so, and 2x4 or 2x 5 at +4.
Unless the penetration is well over 50%, you're probably wasting your time.
