Card Counting Number of Hands
How
many hands will it take?
Let's turn the focus to the number of hands. In this chart we fix
the goal at 2,000 units and the probability of success at 85%. Our
bankroll varies from 1,000 to 2,000 units. So, how many hands must
we play to have an 85% probability of success of reaching 2,000
units with a 1,000 unit bankroll? About 49,000 hands at the left
of the chart. As the bankroll increases, the hands required decreases
in a fairly linear manner. No hands are required if the bankroll
and goal are the same.

What
about hands to goals?
This chart is much like that above only we fix the bankroll and
vary the goal.
