Blackjack Insider Newsletter, March 2006, #74

A WORD FROM HENRY

Get ready folks... this is power-packed edition of BJI! Advantage players getting back-roomed, a hillarious 'worst casino trip ever', what's not so big and great with Hooters, a hidden blackjack casino gem, free poker training software, and much more!

Everyone should read the first person account of Mr. X's barring and getting trespassed from a Las Vegas Casino. It a scary story but true and the outcome … well I'll let you read it to find out. On a lighter side, the hard-to-believe-but-true story of Frank Scoblete's 11-day nightmare stay in Tunica is a classic. I guarantee you will be chuckling and shaking your head when you read his report. Dan Pronovost talks about those tempting suited connectors in Texas Hold'em. Two new casinos recently opened in Sin City, Hooter's and South Coast. LV Pro reports on the blackjack playing conditions there plus a gem that he discovered at the Tuscany casino. If you are thinking of being on, or forming, a blackjack team better read Rick Blaine's article on team compensation. If you are new to blackjack tournaments, then you definitely want to read Ken Smith's excellent article on the basics of bet sizing for good tips on how to bet in a blackjack tournament. Speaking of tournaments, ever wonder if it's worthwhile to re-buy after losing a round? Tournament expert Monkeysytem offers some tips and information to answer this question. Who keeps a poker log anyway? Smart players, according to Bill Burton, who shows you how to go about it. LVBear is growling again, this time about the Gaming Control Board Comedy and the demise of downtown Las Vegas. Frank Scoblete and Alene Paone provide the latest playing conditions in Atlantic City and some feedback from BJI subscribers who play there. Finally, check out the list of upcoming blackjack tournaments by Kenneth Smith.

We have just a few seats left in our Golden Touch Blackjack course the weekend of March 11-12 in Atlantic City. In just one weekend of hands-on training you can become an advantage player using the incredibly simple, but powerful Speed Count. Call 1-888-946-2521 for details or visit www.goldentouchblackjack.com.

LAS VEGAS BLACKJACK REPORT: THERE IS A NEW GIRL IN TOWN by LV TOURNAMENT PRO

"Any time a new girl arrives in town, the anticipation is that things will change and your outlook on your current social situation will improve. The whereabouts of her presence is the topic of everyone. Some even go so far as saying that they have seen her and she is beautiful. The perfect new girl is just what your town needs. This is usually true, unless you live in Sin City. This is a town where many new girls arrive and leave before anyone knows they were even there..."

DISTRIBUTION OF WINNINGS FROM A BLACKJACK TEAM by Rick "Night Train" Blaine

"Whether dealing with a combination of two or twenty players and investors, one of the biggest decisions you need to make is not just how to compensate players for services performed, but when they should receive such compensation. While being far from complete, the following are three of the many different methods used by teams over the years..."

LAS VEGAS TRIP REPORT (Dec. 2005) Part 2 by Barfarkel (a.k.a., LV Pro)

"During the early part of my last evening in town, I hung out at the Plaza. I wonged in to a huge plus count at the $25 table with two $100 bill "cash plays" and lost them both. Out came another two Benji's, but I lost both of those hands as well. I brought out another $300 and sat down for a new shuffle. Pretty soon, I had recouped my $700 in chips that were stacked in front of me..."

ATLANTIC CITY BLACKJACK REPORT by Frank Scoblete and Alene Paone

"I am compelled to write what's coming up even though it doesn't have anything to do with Atlantic City per se, although it does have to do with the very worst 11 days I ever spent in a casino venue in my life. The badness of my 11 days had little to do with gambling; when I played I did very, very well - it had to do with everything else, every damn thing else..."

TOURNAMENT BLACKJACK STRATEGY: BET SIZING BASICS by Kenneth Smith

"This month we'll take a break from the detail-heavy specifics of optimal play and instead focus on some of the basics of effective tournament play. Blackjack tournament strategy breaks cleanly into two areas, playing strategy and betting strategy. The easier of the two is generally playing strategy. A player who simply sticks reasonably close to basic strategy is probably making very few significant tournament mistakes in the play of his or her hands. However, bet-sizing decisions late in the round offer plenty of opportunities for big mistakes..."

TOURNAMENT BLACKJACK STRATEGY: WHEN TO ADJUST YOUR PLAYING STYLE TO GET MORE RE-BUYS by Monkeysystem

"In the December, 2005 issue of Blackjack Insider I described how you can use records of your past tournament performances to calculate your strength relative to that of a theoretical average player. In this issue I want to use that idea to illustrate how important re-buys are to a strong blackjack tournament player, and why it can be advantageous to alter your playing strategy to maximize re-buy opportunities..."

THE VALUE OF SUITED CONNECTORS IN TEXAS HOLD'EM by Dan Pronovost

"You're playing Texas Hold'em at a full table. You're in mid position, sitting with 5 and 4 suited, one of those tempting low-range suited connector hands that holds so much promise, yet rarely seems to deliver the killer punch. There have been a few calls, one fold, no raises, and the bet is to you. What do you do?..."

ALL ABOUT POKER: KEEPING A POKER LOG by Bill Burton

"One of the most informative reference books you will read about poker will be written by you. It is your logbook where you will record the results of all of your poker sessions. If you are serious about your game it is imperative that you keep a log. The only way you will be able to tell if you are a winning player is by keeping a record of your play..."
