A WORD FROM HENRY

This issue of the BJI begins with three reports on blackjack playing conditions; Paris and Bally's Casino in Las Vegas (by Stu D. Hoss); Rivers Casino in NY (by Joe "Freeload" Freda); and the Tunica casinos (by Riverboat Flyer). Paul Wilson does an excellent job of explaining the "casino math" in a way that's easy to comprehend (even if math wasn't your best subject in High School). If you are a card counter (or planning to become one), read Nicholas Colon's article for tips on the behavior of pit personnel that you should be observing when you play. My article on 'why I am still losing' is a response from a question sent to me by a frustrated basic strategy player. On the video poker front, we've got three great articles: Dunbar explains why the order of playing different video poker games can affect your chances of going broke quicker than you expected; Jerry "Stickman" explains the ins and outs of the Quick Quad video poker game; and John Grochowski explains the landscape of video poker games in the Chicago area, which are the best games available, and which casinos offer them.

Enjoy the issue,
Henry Tamburin
Editor
