A WORD FROM HENRY

Congratulations to my friends Rick "Night Train" Blaine, for winning the coveted Grosjean Cup at the recently-held Blackjack Ball, and to Donald Schlesinger, for being inducted into the Blackjack Hall of Fame. (I'll have a complete story on the Blackjack Ball in the next issue of the BJI.)

I recently hit an unbelievable 11 royal flushes in 18 consecutive casino trips (over a two-month period). You can read about my epic streak at http://www.casinocenter.com/an-epic-streak-of-royals/.

We have several blackjack (and trip) reports this month covering playing conditions in Las Vegas ( Circus Circus and Riviera by Stu D. Hoss, and Green Valley Ranch and Sunset Station by KC Brooks); Blackhawk, CO (by Zengrifter); Reno (by JPB): and several Midwest casinos (by John Grochowski). If you are a low-stakes card counter, Paul Wilson offers tips on which casinos offer the best (and most profitable) games. (Note: Read KC Brook's report for two more casinos that are excellent for low-stakes card counters.) Part 3 of the excerpt from Frank Scoblete's new book, "I am a Card Counter" appears in this issue (with a special free offer on Scoblete's other books), and Monkeysystem's article offers strategy tips for blackjack tournament players. On the video-poker front, we have Part 2 of Royal Flusher's blunt and often humorous Las Vegas trip report, and Jerry "Stickman's" article containing strategy tips for playing in a video poker tournament. Last, but not least, we have a schedule of upcoming major blackjack tournaments courtesy of blackjacktournaments.com.

Enjoy the issue,
