A WORD FROM HENRY

This month I asked several of my contributing writers who either have or currently deal blackjack to summarize some of the craziest plays they have seen blackjack players make. You will enjoy (and perhaps be amazed as I was) at the true stories contained in these articles in this issue:

This issue also contains a detailed report on the Vegas Downtown Grand and Plaza casinos (by Stu D. Hoss), St. Louis area casinos (by JPB), and the Atlantic City casinos (by Frank Scoblete). We also continue our reporting on casinos in Europe, this month featuring the famous Casino Bad Wiess located in Germany. For fun, I've penned an article that contains several blackjack scenarios for you to decide, "What would you do in these situations?" Lastly, if you are a video poker player, don't miss reading Jerry "Stickman's" detailed study on how much bankroll you would need to sustain you while playing several popular video poker games.
