A WORD FROM HENRY

Enjoy the issue,

This month's issue of BJI contains three trip reports: Plaza and El Cortez (by Stu D. Hoss); Tropicana and MGM Grand (by KC Brooks); and downtown casinos (by JPB). You'll find some very good blackjack games in these trip reports (and also some duds to avoid). Also, if are planning a trip to Vegas for only a quick weekend of play, JPB makes a good point as to why it makes sense to play the blackjack games downtown. Zengrifter received several comments from readers on his Part 1 and 2 trip reports to the casinos in Blackhawk, CO and this month he answer's them. If you tried answering the questions on the Blackjack Ball Test (last month's issue of BJI), you can now grade yourself against the answers contained in Part 2 of my Blackjack Ball Report. This is a BJI exclusive... you won't find this anywhere else! Dustin Marks continues his story on how he became a blackjack cheater, and Paul Wilson reminisces about the good ole days at the soon to close Riviera Casino and Hotel. Royal Flusher continues with his Las Vegas trip report, where you will find the good and the bad video poker games and the best places to eat and stay in Las Vegas (with photos). If you play in blackjack tournaments (or planning to), don't miss reading Monkeysystem's article containing strategies for playing the last hand in a tournament. Last, but not least, we have a run down on the upcoming major blackjack tournaments across the USA courtesy of blackjacktournaments.com.
