Blackjack Insider Newsletter, Dec. 2005, #71

A WORD FROM HENRY

Me, roll the dice 45 consecutive times without a 7? Yep, I did and won an award to boot! Read about it, as well as the best casinos to play blackjack in Atlantic City in Frank Scoblete and Alene Paone's Atlantic City Blackjack Report. LV Tournament Pro picks the top 5 blackjack games in Las Vegas including an excellent 4-deck game that not many players know about (but you will). Our Gulf Coast Reporter, The Low Roller, had to pack her bags and travel to play blackjack and she reports on the good blackjack, craps and video poker plays that she encountered in Vicksburg and Tunica plus an update on the scheduled reopening of three Gulf Coast casinos later this month. There's bad news from Barfarkel this month; he experienced his worse loss since he became a skilled advantage player. Read all the ugly details in his latest Las Vegas Trip report. LVBear rants and growls about Missouri regulators who apparently did little to Harrah's employees that rigged a drawing and then growls some more about what Harrah's has done to some of the properties it recently acquired. On the tournament front, 'The Babe' explains why you ought to consider splitting tens in tournament play and our newest BJI writer, Monkeysystem, describes an improved way to rate your tournament play. If you play Texas Hold'em and want to try the Sit and Go tournaments then you definitely want to read Bill Burton's advice on how to consistently beat your opponents in these tournaments and get the money. We get questions from subscribers addressed to The Suit (former LV floor supervisor and shift manager) and this month we've got answers to your questions. Finally Kenneth Smith summarizes the upcoming schedule of blackjack tournaments including several local satellite tournaments that can get you a seat in next years World Series of Blackjack.

Have a Safe and Happy Holiday!

ATLANTIC CITY BLACKJACK REPORT by Alene Paone and Frank Scoblete

"Best selling gambling author, editor of this newsletter, and blackjack expert Henry Tamburin has been playing craps with Dominator, Golden Touch and Frank Scoblete for a few years now and he's seen the economic potential in dice control. He's been in on some of their monsters - those 50 plus hands - and he's gone from a skeptic to a believer. As have Stanford Wong, Jean Scott, John Grochowski, Dr. Don Catlin, Linda Mabry, Gus Rose and a host of other gambling writers who used to be skeptics and are now believers..."

LAS VEGAS BLACKJACK REPORT: TOP 5 BLACKJACK GAMES IN LAS VEGAS by LV Tournament Pro

"If you are an accomplished counter, than the following 5 games will yield you the highest EV that you can expect. The key is longevity in these games - the rules are so good and the penetration is the best you will find that a reasonable spread will get you the money. It will only be your greed that will stop your ability to milk these games to the limit..."

LAS VEGAS TRIP REPORT (Oct/Nov 2005) by Barfarkel (a.k.a., LV Pro)

"I played for ninety minutes and was down the whole time. I kept buying in for more and more, expecting the cards to turn in my favor at some point, like they usually do. Well not this time. I finally lost the last max bet on the last round before a shuffle and skulked away $900 poorer. I was now down $1,100 for the trip, when a few short hours ago I was up $700. So far this day I had one winning session for $400 and three losers for a total of $1,800. What a way to put a damper on an otherwise lovely day!..."

SOUTHERN BLACKJACK REPORT: HOMELESS GAMBLER LOOKING FOR NEW HOME by The Low Roller

"Thanks to Hurricane Katrina, I've had to travel far and wide in order to play blackjack, video poker, poker and craps. I've been to Las Vegas once, Tunica twice and Vicksburg five times. I've put a lot of miles on the car, bought a lot of gasoline and spent many nights away from home..."

ASK "THE SUIT" by The Suit

"What are the major responsibilities of a floor supervisor (FS)?" "Are FS trained in card counting and if so by whom?" "Do casinos still 'backroom' counters?" "What typical actions does a FS take if they enough evidence that a player is counting?..."

TOURNAMENT BLACKJACK STRATEGY: SPLIT FACE CARDS! ARE YOU NUTS? by 'The Babe'

"In the October issue of BJI, we explored the need to sometimes stray from Basic Strategy in Tournament Play. Remember the Tortoise? He follows the rules of perfect hit-stand-double-split basic strategy (BS), and he wins the marathon race, which represents a lifetime of blackjack play. The Hare races around in circles, stops to have fun, takes a rest, and then rejoins the race. That is why he loses. But in a short tournament round, he does not need to rest, and his attention span is long enough to get him through 30 hands in the blink of a tortoise's eye..."

TOURNAMENT BLACKJACK STRATEGY: AN IMPROVED WAY TO RATE YOUR PLAY by Monkeysystem

"In BJ Insider #69 Ken Smith wrote an article on how you can calculate the value of a tournament. Ken used a method currently used by top tournament players for assigning a weighted factor to the historical strength of their play. But the methodology used for obtaining a weighted factor as a function of the player's strength needs a little tweaking because the mathematics of it is somewhat problematic..."

THE BEAR GROWLS by LVBear

"Harrah's Employees Rigged a Drawing; Missouri Regulators Did Nothing. Apparently Missouri regulators have followed the lead of the "see-no-evil, hear-no-evil" casino puppets on the Nevada Gaming Control Board..."

ALL ABOUT POKER-SIT and GO TOURNAMENTS by Bill Burton

"A Sit and Go is a single table tournament where you are competing against 8 or 9 other players. Some sites have 9 player tables and other have 10 player tables so it depends on where you play. A Sit and Go is like being at the final table of a regular tournament. The best part is that you only have to beat 6 or 7 players to get into the money..."
