A WORD FROM HENRY

We have several blackjack playing-condition and property-amenity reports this month beginning with the newly opened Cromwell casino in Las Vegas (by Stu D. Hoss); Bally's and Flamingo casinos (by KC Brooks); the Emerald Queen in Tacoma/Seattle (by JPB); and a "different" Atlantic City report (by Frank Scoblete and Alene Paone). Loudon Ofton offers tips on how to play the juicy blackjack games in Reno, and Kenneth Smith gives you the "rest of the story" on a 2-1 blackjack promotion initially reported by Joe Pane in the BJI. Frank Scoblete retells the story of his very first banning at the Golden Nugget casino many years ago, and he along with John "Skinny" give you the inside scoop on how you can get the monetary edge playing Pai Gow Poker. Mark Gruetze gives you a heads-up on a report issued by the state of Pennsylvania on recommended rule changes to their current great blackjack games. On the video poker front, Jerry "Stickman" presents the complete playing strategy for Triple Deuces Video Poker. Lastly, we have the schedule of blackjack tournaments across the U.S. courtesy of www.blackjacktournaments.com.
