A WORD FROM HENRY

This month marks a milestone; our 200th edition of the Blackjack Insider Newsletter. As always, we have several playing conditions reports (that includes some very good games) covering the following casinos/locations:

Our Mr. Insider provides insider tips on how casinos go about catching card counters. Paul Wilson concludes his series on the Illustrious 18, and yours truly explains how to play an 18 and 12, depending on the composition of the cards in your hand. Monkeysystem reviews a blackjack tournament held in Oklahoma (favorable review). You can read about the history of video poker in Jerry "Stickman's" column, and get answers to the following questions from John Grochowski: why a casino manager implemented a 6-5 game; whether playing $1 per hand in a dollar video poker machine is better than playing $1.25 in a quarter machine; and the name of the video poker game that uses five decks and has a big jackpot.
