Double Deck H17 Excel Basic Strategy Trainer

For those looking to hone their skills while some of the more traditional options aren't available, I have created a few handy Excel projects that I will be releasing over the next few weeks.  This particular file is designed to help practice basic strategy for a DD H17 DAS RSA game.

To use, simply hit the button that corresponds to the correct action in each scenario.  In the above example, I would want to hit Stand.

As you can see, the program shows that I was correct, the rule is displayed, and the counter is increased by one.  To be dealt new cards, I simply press deal.  If I feel like I am struggling in a certain area, I have a couple options.

Across the bottom of the file there are separate tabs.  The "Main" tab uses a deck with a normal distribution of cards.  The "Soft Hands" tab has a deck packed with extra aces, and the "Hard Hands" tab has none.  The "Blank" tab can be ignored (and is truly only there for aesthetic purposes).  If you need to check a Basic Strategy chart, there is a tab for that also.   

To download the file, click this link and hit download.  You must use this in Excel as the Google Docs version will not do anything.  You must also click enable content and Macros when the options appear.  

If you ever run into any issues or have any questions, feel free to leave a comment and I'll try to get back to them as I see them.  Keep an eye out for some more programs I plan to release in the future.
