A WORD FROM HENRY

Robert Loeb's article on Cash Seizures is must reading if you carry large amounts of cash from gambling (you won't find his legal analysis on this topic anywhere else.) Royal Flusher's trip to Las Vegas was a resounding success when he and the Quad Queen hit an amazing eight royal flushes in two weeks of play. Read about it in his detailed trip report. Blackjack tournaments can be fertile ground for skillful players; however, tournaments have a high variance. Monkeysystem reveals how the pros minimize the variance by making deals with other players. (Great tips you won't find anywhere else.) If you are a card counter looking for a good double-deck game in Las Vegas, you definitely want to read Stu D. Hoss's report on the very good double-deck game he found at Green Valley Ranch casino. Meanwhile, KC Brooks found some good double-deck games at TI and Mirage worth your play. In Mark Gruetze's Tunica Report, you'll learn about where you can find a low stakes double-deck game with 60% penetration, and how the expansion of gambling has otherwise affected the games in Tunica (Gruetze gives examples, and you may take part in his survey on smoking in casinos). If you've had a friend or relative ask you to go with him or her to play blackjack (and who hasn't), you need to read Paul Wilson's article on how to handle this often delicate situation. Dustin Marks continues his amazing story on how he cheated at blackjack, this time with a team of five cheating dealers, 15 agents, and two casino bosses that took down a casino. (No kidding.) Lastly, we have a schedule of upcoming blackjack tournaments throughout the US, courtesy of blackjacktournaments.com.

Enjoy the issue!
