A WORD FROM HENRY

Note: As I mentioned last month, we've added a great new product to our online store, BJI contributing writer Kenneth Smith's new Advanced Strategy Cards For Card Counters. If you are a card counter, or thinking of becoming one, you need to read Ken's article in this issue (and last month) for the details on what these new strategy cards entail, and how to use them on the tables (or for practicing card counting at home). Ken spent the better part of two months developing the index numbers for the cards. (Trust me, you won't find a more accurate set of indices based on the playing rules and the number of the decks, anywhere.) These cards are a winner and we have them on sale!

Loudon Ofton is a high-stakes blackjack player, who must often carry large sums of money through airport security. This month he offers tips on how best to do this. For low-stakes players, you might benefit from reading my article on how to get and manage your cash when gambling in a casino. Stu D. Hoss reports on playing conditions at The Quad and Harrah's Casinos on the Strip, and KC Brooks reports on playing conditions in Reno. Frank Scoblete completes his two-part article summarizing his one-day visit to every casino in Atlantic City. John Grochowski answers reader's questions on comps at blackjack, memorizing penalty cards for video poker, and how the mystery jackpot is triggered at slots. If you want learn what a royal flush cycle is in video poker, read my article that explains it and how it can affect your bankroll. Last but not least we have a summary of upcoming blackjack tournaments across the U.S. by www.blackjacktournaments.com (there are more tournaments scheduled than usual).

Note: Send us your feedback on playing conditions (good and bad) that you observe when you play blackjack and we'll publish them in the BJI in our new Reader's Feedback on Playing Conditions section. Send to HTamburin@aol.com.

    ULTIMATE STRATEGY CARDS FOR CARD COUNTERS: THE STEALTH VERSION by Kenneth R Smith

    "The new Advanced Blackjack Strategy Card set of cards focuses on six different rule sets and provides an optimized basic strategy for each of the games, just like our popular basic strategy set. Even though each card is titled simply "Blackjack Basic Strategy Chart," a close examination might lead to questions that you would prefer not to be asked. That's why the set also includes a "stealth" version of each card which encodes the index information in a far less obvious fashion..."
