A WORD FROM HENRY

This month we have several reports on playing conditions covering the following casinos/locations: South Point and Silverton casinos in Las Vegas (by KC Brooks); Casino Queen (IL) and Southland Park (AR) (by Stu D. Hoss); Seattle area casinos (by JPB); and several casinos in Ireland (by Steve Bourie). There is some very worthwhile information on Spanish 21 in JPBs Seattle report worth a read; likewise, I found the rules and regulations for casinos in Ireland most interesting and unique. If you don't know what a blackjack i-Table is all about and how it works, check out Stu D. Hoss's report for the details. If you want to learn about all the advanced playing techniques (other than card counting) used by blackjack pros these days, read Mark Gruetze's article. Paul Wilson reminds us of some of the tell-tale signs of card counters; worth reviewing for tips on how to stay under the casino radar when you play. The football season is just around the corner and Joe "Reload" Freda offers you several tips on how to bet on the games. John Grochowski answers some interesting questions dealing with comps for blackjack players; the odds of getting a royal flush playing a Super Time Pay video poker machine; and the usual request by a casino attendant to "play off" a just hit royal flush. Jerry "Stickman's" video poker column this month is terrific because it contains strategies that you can use (or generate yourself) for improving your chances of finishing in the money in lucrative video poker tournaments. Lastly, we have our roundup of upcoming blackjack tournaments courtesy of www.blackjacktournaments.com.

The next Golden Touch Blackjack class featuring the easy-to-use and learn Speed Count will be held September 16 in Las Vegas. Here are just a few of the documented comments I received from students that attended the class last month.


"Professional-style presentations; excellent details."
"Great tips; great instructors."
"Demonstrations and practice times (on the blackjack tables) made all the concepts easy to understand."
"Learning the card counting strategy was easy to do in the class room environment."
"Informative and well presented."

For more student feedback, and the specifics on what the one-day class entails, visit http://www.goldentouchblackjack.com/feedback.shtml. If you want to have the edge and become an advantage player when you play blackjack, seriously consider attending this hands-on class. (You'll get a $100 discount if you register before August 16 plus receive $170 worth of products.) Class size is limited; space fills up quickly. To register, call me at 1-251-648-2471 ASAP.
