A WORD FROM HENRY

I will be teaching a Golden Touch Blackjack class featuring Speed Count on Friday, Sept. 18th in Las Vegas. Speed Count is the easiest method that recreational blackjack players can use to get the edge over the casinos at blackjack. Students will receive $154 worth of training products at no cost. They include a copy of the Golden Touch Blackjack Revolution book (featuring Speed), a CD that you can pop in your computer to practice the Speed Count and the Optimum Basic Playing strategy, and the Golden Touch Blackjack DVD. You can go to www.goldentouchblackjack.com for more details on the class. You can either register for the class at this web site or call me at 1-888-354-3234. (Discounts off the tuition if you register online, or if two or more register at same time.) Note: Class size is limited.

We have several blackjack trip reports containing tips on where there are playable (and unplayable) blackjack games. They include the Las Vegas reports encompassing the Main Street Station and California casinos (by Stu D. Hoss), and the Linq, Harrah's, and Casino Royale casinos (by KC Brooks); Wheeling Island casino in West Virginia, including playing on the high tech i-Table (by JPB); and Oxford casino in Maine (by "Reload" Joe Freda). Blackjack cheater Dustin Marks explains how he used a "cooler" to cheat at blackjack. Paul Wilson does a very nice job explaining the logic of always splitting 8s and aces. If you want to learn why dice control works, and how you can prove if you have any control when you throw the dice check out Frank Scoblete's article. Jerry "Stickman" gives you the low down on the popular Ultimate X video poker game, including a complete playing strategy for Double Double Bonus Ultimate X. Last, but not least, we have a roundup of upcoming blackjack tournaments (some very good) courtesy of blackjacktournaments.com.

Enjoy the issue!
