A WORD FROM HENRY

This month we have several reports on playing conditions covering the following: Sante Fe Station and Red Rock casinos in Las Vegas (by Stu D. Hoss); Reno casinos (by KC Brooks); St. Louis casinos (by JBP): and Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos (by Joe "Freeload" Freda). If you want to learn about some advanced advantage plays for blackjack, check out the article by Mark Gruetze. Need a refresher on when to vary your bets and playing strategy when card counting? Check out Nicholas Colon's article. Paul Wilson penned an interesting article, actually an interview with a friend who plays video poker frugally (some nice frugal tips). Meanwhile, video poker pro Dunbar explains the effect of using a "wrong" strategy when playing video poker (more great tips). John Grochowski answers some interesting questions dealing with progressive jackpots on video blackjack games; lowering the jackpot for tax forms from $1200 to $600; apparent cheating at video poker; and the effect of reporting large wins on your income tax. Lastly, we have our roundup of upcoming blackjack tournaments courtesy of www.blackjacktournaments.com.

There are two spots remaining for the Speed Count Blackjack Class that I will be teaching in Las Vegas on June 24th. To register, call me at 1-251-648-2471 ASAP.
