Blackjack Insider Newsletter, March 2003, #39
A WORD FROM HENRY
We welcome Propokerdealer, who will report on blackjack playing conditions in Tunica, MS. For this issue, he gives us the low down on what you'll find at the Horseshoe casino (very good I might add). In addition, Captain John reports on blackjack conditions at two recently opened Las Vegas casinos and also summarizes the current playing conditions in the downtown casinos (if you are a low-roller, check this out). Alene Paone and Frank Scoblete updates us on blackjack in Atlantic City with one casino receiving a "best" rating and another a "dump" rating (read why). Dan Pronovost analyzes the effect that the number of players has on your expectation with some surprising results (very surprising!). And Fred Renzey shows how you can vary your playing strategy with an unbalanced counting system (excellent study). Finally, if you are interested in blackjack tournaments, check out our Blackjack Tournament Schedule.
On a personal note, I entered the preliminary round of the Las Vegas Hilton Million-Dollar Blackjack Tournament in February and managed to qualify for their April finals. This means I have a 1 in 200 shot at winning a million dollars. For details of my playing experience in the February preliminary round, click here.
A reminder - if you come across an unfamiliar blackjack term in one of our articles or reports, see our Blackjack Glossary.
