Atlantic City casinos are hurting,
and which casinos currently offer the best blackjack (and craps) games.

"It happened somewhere in the desert between Las Vegas and Laughlin. I was riding in the car with Henry Tamburin, who is the editor of the Blackjack Insider Newsletter.

Once we caught up with that, Henry returned to one of his favorite topics of conversation with me..."

My wife likes it because the flight from Orlando to Memphis is only 90 minutes, as opposed to the five hours it takes to get to Vegas. My "host" in Tunica is actually the Regional Director of Marketing for Resorts. He scheduled a golf tournament for the end June, and, well, I just had to go..."
