A WORD FROM HENRY

Heads Up! I will be teaching a one-day Golden Touch Blackjack class on Speed Count on Friday, Sept. 18th in Las Vegas. More details about the class will appear in next month's BJI. If you want details on the class right now, or to sign up (space is limited), call me at 1-251-648-2471 (cell).

This month we have several blackjack reports encompassing Luxor and Mandalay Bay Casinos in Las Vegas (find out where the good double-deck game is, by Stu D. Hoss); several Reno casinos (some very good single-deck games, by KC Brooks); St. Louis casinos (surprisingly some very good games for advantage players, by JPB); and Atlantic City (a few, but not many, decent games, by Frank Scoblete). You'll also read the latest rumors on what is planned for all the shuttered AC casinos in Scoblete's report (interesting reading). Only Vinny DeCarlo could get involved in a sting operation with the Federal DEA agents while working in a casino ... read what happened to DeCarlo in his Lake Tahoe Adventure article. Dustin Mark's continues his true story about how he became a blackjack cheater and how he (and his team) went about methodically cheating casinos without ever getting caught. I summarize the no-hole card rule in blackjack and what changes you need to make to your playing strategy if surrender is also offered with this rule. Jerry "Stickman" analyzes the odds of getting certain winning video poker hands to dispel the myth that the game is "rigged." Lastly, Monkeysystem offers tips on how you can read your opponents before the crucial last hand in blackjack tournaments (this is valuable and useful information you won't find elsewhere).

We didn't include our usual Blackjack Tournament schedule in this month's BJI because there were very few tournaments schedule in the upcoming months. (You can check www.blackjacktournaments.com for the latest schedule of tournaments.)

Enjoy the issue!
