Re: black jack question ?

Not even close.

Even in extremely high counts your initial bet won't win more than 45% of the time. You do lose significantly less hands though. Much of the edge just comes from getting more blackjacks. Remember card counters only have around .5%-2% edge overall depending on how good the rules are.

In very high counts you can get like a 10% edge on your initial bet, but these are extremely rare unless you're playing single deck, and rare even then. You're still winning less than 45% of hands though.

Thanks for the info. Very very hard to believe
The MIT guys won the kind of
Money they did on such tiny edge.
I was gonna guess at plus 5 or
More it had to be at least 60%

I believe at the current universal rules of the game your edge goes up about 1% per every -1 added to the true count. Of course this depends on game rules and isn't an exact number.
