LAS VEGAS BLACKJACK REPORT:
DOWNTOWN LV CASINOS-PART 2
By Stu D. Hoss
Stu D. Hoss is a recently retired Air Force aviator. He has visited and served in over 40 countries, including flying combat missions in the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Horn of Africa. Most of it was under the guise of keeping the world safe for democracy, better blackjack, and a few other personal reasons. He has been playing blackjack for almost 20 years, and cut his teeth on the tables of South Lake Tahoe during flight training in Northern CA. Mr. Hoss uses basic strategy and the Hi Lo counting system to give himself an advantage over the house edge. He currently resides in N.V. and is weighing his options for a second career.
The observations of casino conditions were made in July 2011. The casinos visited Downtown, Las Vegas, include:
Fremont Hotel and Casino, 200 Fremont Street
Golden Gate, One Fremont Street
Main Street Station Casino Brewery Hotel, 200 North Main Street
California Hotel and Casino, 12 E. Ogden Ave.
El Cortez Hotel and Casino, 600 Fremont Street

Friday afternoon I called my downtown headquarters and got a comped room for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday nights. I would spend the holiday weekend on Fremont Street.
If you read Part I of my Downtown Blackjack Experience in Juneís Blackjack Insider, youíll recall that Fremont Street is celebrating the "Summer of the 80ís" through Labor Day weekend with 80s headliners, cover bands, music, and movie themes everywhere. Saturday night was another Absolutely 80ís headliner Ė Colin Hay of Men at Work fame. Men at Work are a Grammy Award winning Scottish-Australian rock band who garnered international success in the 1980s with hits such as "Who Can It be Now," "Be Good Johnny," "Itís a Mistake," "Overkill," and "Dr Heckyll and Mr. Jive." Warning: High School flashbacks approaching! (For the record, Hay put on a fantastic performance that spanned two hours and included much of his solo work and all the Men at Work hits that the crowd expected. He currently maintains a successful solo career and plays with Ringo Starr and his All-Star Band.)
Fremont Hotel and Casino, 200 Fremont Street
After grilling some hamburgers and hot dogs Saturday afternoon at the house in the spirit of the holiday weekend, I went downtown and checked in to the hotel, before making my way to the Fremont for a little blackjack action. The Fremontís 14 blackjack tables are a combination of...
