A WORD FROM HENRY

This month's issue begins with the second part of an interview I did with Colin Jones, the former manager of a highly successful blackjack team. Vinny Decarlo describes a cheating scam at baccarat involving several voluptuous ladies. We have several blackjack and trip reports, covering casinos in these regions: Reno (KC Brooks), I-35 corridor between Kansas and Minnesota (JPB), Las Vegas (Stu D. Hoss), Tunica (Mark Gruetze), and Atlantic City (Frank Scoblete). Basil Nestor explains and describes several blackjack techniques that are aggressive vs. those that are outright illegal (and could get you in the slammer). John Grochowski summarizes several blackjack games that he saw promoted at the recent Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas. If you want to learn about the Oddman's bet in craps, check out Frank Scoblete's article. Frank Kneeland concludes his three part series on video poker training software, and last, but not least, we have a summary of upcoming major blackjack tournaments across the US from www.blackjacktournaments.com.

    KANSAS TO MINNESOTA I-35 CORRIDOR TRIP REPORT by JPB

    "I generally write my blackjack trip reports based on a geographic region - a city or sometimes an entire state- so that a potential player will have the benefit of deciding whether he or she wants to play blackjack in that region. In this report, the geographic region is the 500+ long x 1 mile strip that runs from Kansas to the Minnesota border along I-35. If you are driving on I-35, you should see giant signs along the highway for these three casinos. The casinos are all within a half-mile of the highway..."

    THE TRUTH ABOUT THE ODDMAN'S BET IN CRAPS by Frank Scoblete

    "The late and legendary Captain of Craps developed the idea of the "Oddsman's Bet" in the 1970's and it appears in my book The Captain's Craps Revolution!, which was published in 1993. It is a terrific way to decrease the house edge. In fact, if you only make the Oddsman's Bet, you will have no house edge against you except when you shoot. Not a bad tactic, right..."
