    P 53 to 55 in Ken's More ways book discusses standing on H12. But I believe his examples assume the OPs are all stiff or all standing on stiffs. He sites swings/half swings as his reasoning. What if they all are standing pat on 20's against a dealer 3?

    I have read elsewhere that you stand when trying to catch up. This article is the same vein. So lets assume you are in the lead, close to the lead, or don't need to catch up yet. Further assume a fairly small bet and mid-session and a second example of a middling sized bet. Also, a win is better than a push and a push is better than a loss. It seems like a coin flip but after reading Ken II, I will stand and not know if that's optimal.

    I may have lost and confused myself. Thanks for your thoughts.
