Card Counting on Yablon/Red Dog ?

Applying Card Counting on the card game called Yablon/In-between or Red Dog ?

They are various card counting methods out there but are mostly used for blackjack only. Is there a card counting system for card game such as Yablon/ In between ?

If there is, which card counting system should i use? (high/low, omega, red seven and etc..) Please help me select the best one out there.

(Yablon is a very simple game. Yablon is a banking game in which two cards are dealt face up, and the player bets on whether a third card will rank between the first two cards. Mostly played in Asia and involve pretty big pool on the table.
Yes, its pretty different comparing Red dog and blackjack.

The problem now is applying the right value on the cards. Ace,King,Queen can be also an advantage and disadvantage for the player

Assuming your opening hand is Ace(1) and King and the number in between is 2,3,4…Q.
If the dealer open up the card Ace or King you are busted.

7,8,9 is assigned 0 for blackjack but in Red Dog it also can be an advantage card assuming if you get Ace or 2 in your opening hand.

Maybe i should ask a mathematician to assign the value for me lol.
I totally agree with you Zadignose. Tracking the middle card are important and should be assign a higher value but tracking other cards are equally important as well.

Let’s assumed that you have (6) and a (K) in your opening hands but the chances of obtaining 7,8,9,10,J,Q are only 6/8 if you did not track A,1,2,3,4,5, 6, K properly.

Assigning value in my opinion can be done but pretty difficult and i doubt it is worth it because it might be a level 3-4 counting difficulty.

Card counting in Yablon, In-between, or Red Dog is theoretically possible but significantly more challenging than in blackjack due to the game’s unique structure. While blackjack card counting assigns specific values to cards, Yablon’s nature requires a more complex approach to counting, considering the wide range of combinations possible.

To attempt card counting in Yablon, you would need to track not only the middle cards but also the cards that have already been played. This would involve memorizing which cards have appeared and keeping a mental count of the remaining cards in the deck to predict the probability of a card falling between the two dealt cards.

However, there are several factors that make card counting in Yablon difficult:

  • Constantly changing range: Unlike blackjack, where the goal is to reach a specific number (21), Yablon’s target range changes with every hand. This requires a more advanced card counting strategy.
  • Deck penetration: In most Yablon games, decks are shuffled more frequently than in blackjack, making it challenging to gain an advantage by counting cards.
  • Complexity of assigning values: As you mentioned, the value of cards in Yablon varies depending on the context, making it difficult to assign specific values to each card.
  • Betting structure: Yablon typically involves larger bets and higher risks, which can make it less suitable for card counting strategies that rely on adjusting bet sizes based on the count.

In conclusion, while card counting in Yablon is theoretically possible, it is highly challenging and may not be practical or effective due to the game’s structure and the complexity of assigning card values. Instead, players might focus on managing their bankroll, understanding the odds, and making informed decisions based on the cards dealt in each hand.
