CLICK HERE for all the details and answers to common questions.

And in this month's BJI issue...

The new season of the World Series of Blackjack with $1 million in prizes was recently filmed in Las Vegas. Our LV Tournament Pro was there and gives us an inside look at the World Series of Blackjack. The new radio show Be in Action focuses on blackjack and I interviewed co-host Joe Pane, who reveals his background as a policeman in Brooklyn and his transition to blackjack tournament expert in Las Vegas and co-host of a radio show. Did you know there is a different reason why we split a pair of 2's against a 4 vs. splitting a pair of 3's against a 6 vs. splitting a pair of 7's against a 6. Confused? Get the answers in my article on pair splitting. We got a negative report on blackjack games in Tunica in February from Jerry "Stickman." So he revisited the casinos again and reports on his latest findings. I hope you read Frank Scoblete's, "My Worst Gambling Trip (Tunica)" in the March issue of BJI. Could it get any worse? Read his April Atlantic City Blackjack Report and you won't believe his experience there. We've got more tournament blackjack strategy advice from experts. Kenneth Smith gives tips on how you should bet if you have the lead in his Nailing the Coffin article. Rick Jensen throws caution to the wind and examines when using basic strategy in tournaments may not be your best play. Poker players rejoice! Hal Marcus describes his revolutionary new Poker 6򊐠 Hold'Em Strategy Cards, which has specialized Pre-Flop strategies for playing against 7-10 players and also against 2-6 players. You would have to read dozens of poker books to get all the information that Hal has assembled in his easy to read strategy cards. If you play Texas Hold'Em on the Internet, these cards are a must. Online tells? Yes, and Bill Burton shows you how to pick up tells when you play poker online. There is a bunch of hot blackjack tournaments scheduled for April. Check them out in Kenneth Smith's Tournament Schedule.

We have a few seats left in our Las Vegas Golden Touch Blackjack course, which will be held the weekend of April 29 and 30 in Las Vegas. In just one weekend of hands-on training from me and Frank Scoblete and you will become an advantage player using the incredibly simple, but powerful Speed Count. Call 1-888-946-2521 for details or visit www.goldentouchblackjack.com.

We were so impressed with Hal's new 6򊐠 Hold'Em Strategy Cards that we've added them to our online store and discounted them 10%. If you play Texas Hold'Em, especially on the Internet, I guarantee these cards will make you a more competitive player no matter how many players there are in the game. Check them out by clicking here.

INSIDE LOOK AT THE WORLD SERIES OF BLACKJACK by LV Tournament Pro

"As the 2006 filming of GSN's WSOB approached, many of the top blackjack players that had competed in the WSOB in 2003 and 2004 waited anxiously by their phones for the call from GSN that they were invited to play. That call had a $25,000 expected value (EV) attached to it because there were only 40 seats in this made for TV tournament and with a prize pool of one million dollars that comes to $25 K per seat..."

BE IN ACTION: INTERVIEW WITH CO-HOST JOE PANE by Henry Tamburin

"How long have you been on the air and whose idea was it to do a radio show about blackjack? It was Kenny's idea to do the radio show. I was his guest on his second show and the chemistry between us clicked. Kenny asked me to co-host the show with him and I've been on ever since (the show has been on the air since June of 2005)..."

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PAIR SPLITTING by Henry Tamburin

"When it comes to splitting pairs in blackjack most players are in a fog. They either never split, or they always split, or in the worse case, they recklessly split pairs with no rhyme or reason. This is unfortunate because pair splitting was introduced into the game as a way for players to reduce the casino's advantage..."

UPDATE ON TUNICA BLACKJACK CONDITIONS by Jerry "Stickman"

ATLANTIC CITY BLACKJACK REPORT by Frank Scoblete and Alene Paone

"In February I had the worst trip of my life when I went to Tunica, Mississippi for about two weeks - ice storms, poor or non-existent service and a lackadaisical attitude that drove me crazy. I was hoping my next trip; another two-weeker in March, to Atlantic City would be perfect. It wasn't..."

TOURNAMENT BLACKJACK STRATEGY: NAILING THE COFFIN SHUT by Kenneth Smith

"It's an uncommon treat to head into the final hands of a tournament round with a huge lead over your opponents. But there's nothing more frustrating than seeing that lead disappear as one of your opponents "rises from the dead" to overtake you and advance at your expense. Of course, there's also nothing more gratifying than pulling off one of those miracle comebacks, but that's a topic for another article. This month we're going to look at a few ways to "nail the coffin shut" on those nearly dead opponents, and make their miracle a little less likely..."

WHEN TO THROW BASIC STRATEGY OUT THE WINDOW IN TOURNAMENT PLAY by Rick Jensen

"I see more players throwing away leads in tournaments because they get a great double down or split opportunity. Did they ever stop and think that maybe there might be a better play beside the one dictated by basic strategy?..."

HOLD'EM STRATEGY FOR ANY NUMBER OF PLAYERS by Hal Marcus

"Poker experts recommend that you adjust your strategy at Hold'Em when the number of players' changes, but up until now the strategies for doing this simply did not exist (to the best of my knowledge). These strategies can now easily be used by players who have the new Poker 6򊐠 Hold'Em Strategy Cards..."

ALL ABOUT POKER: ONLINE TELLS by Bill Burton

"A tell is a mannerism or physical movement that can give you an indication of the strength of an opponent's hand or tell you if the player is bluffing. The term tell is short for a telltale sign. Some players think they can only spot tells in a live game however there are some tells you can pick up even when playing online..."
