Why not make the software self learning? There are several strategies. Code them all (preferably parameterized). Now start a sequence of simulations and compare the results for each strategy. You can then drop the worst and add adaptations of the winners. Then continue. Until you are satisfied by the result. For the final product, use some of the winning ...
You shouldn't have much trouble at all finding a chart.. What you are looking for is known as Basic Strategy Replace any double/split with a hit, surrender with fold if your simulation does not allow it. Edit: As Hymie pointed out in the comments, splits are not always a hit.. in fact many splits you would stand on. A close approximation would be to use ...
