9/6 Double Double Bonus 10-Play Ultimate X Strategy

Introduction

This page shows my strategy for the 10-hand version of 9-6 Ultimate X Double Double Bonus. With perfect play, which requires knowing more than one correct play for many hands based on the average multiplier, the expected return of this game is 99.8663%. If you use the following single strategy at all times, the expected return is 99.8176%. So you are giving up 0.0487% in long-term return in exchange for a single, simple strategy.
