A WORD FROM HENRY

This month we have several reports on playing conditions covering the following casinos: SLS and Gold Coast (Stu D. Hoss), and Sam's Town and Eastside Cannery (by KC Brooks) in Las Vegas; Lady Luck Nemacolin (by Mark Gruetze); and Atlantic City (by Frank Scoblete). If you'd like to read an unbiased report on the Golden Touch dice control class, check out Joe Freda's report. Nicholas Colon has written an informative article that describes various drills to help you master the Hi Lo card counting system. If you want an update on the potential bankruptcy of Atlantic City, check out Frank Scoblete's report. Paul Wilson offers advice on whether it makes sense to take the casino cash or the comps. John Grochowski answers reader's question involving "Hot Roll" video poker; strategy for "Free Bet" blackjack; and 8/5 Bonus Poker vs. 8/5 ACES Bonus Poker. For video poker players, Jerry "Stickman" discusses several plays where high-level reasoning doesn't always result in making the right hold. Lastly, we have our roundup of upcoming blackjack tournaments courtesy of www.blackjacktournaments.com.

The next hands-on Speed Count Blackjack Class that I will be teaching will be held in Las Vegas on June 24th. If two sign up at the same time, the second student receives a $100 discount. To read more about the class, go to www.goldentouchblackjack.com. Classes fill up quickly so if you want to attend, sign up ASAP.
