Match plays offer a huge boost for low limit players. In fact the edge from coupons will often dwarf the rest of your advantage. Knowing that the probability of the next card being a 10 and more often busting than improving you, should you stand and pray the dealer has 6 or less and take that 10? Or do you always hit since too many cards improve you and refer to basic strategy? Just always hit 12, 13, and 14 vs Ten. For 12vT and 13vT, the count basically never gets high enough to stand.
