A WORD FROM HENRY

This issue is loading with valuable advice for blackjack players. We begin with an exclusive interview with Mr. Jimmy Wike, Vice President of Operations at the Las Vegas Hilton and the man behind the first-ever Million Dollar Blackjack Tournament. Hal Marcus explains how a card counter can increase his/her advantage using his unique counter basic playing strategy. Our Las Vegas reporter and advantage player Captain John interviewed a 15-year casino surveillance professional-read the advice from this pro on how to keep your longevity as an advantage player. Alene Paone and Frank Scoblete update the blackjack playing conditions in Atlantic City casinos including the newly opened Borgata (surprisingly boring). On the tournament front we've got an article by Ken Smith explaining 'free hits', a case study on how the last five hands played out in a recent blackjack tournament, our schedule of major blackjack tournaments, and a survey you can take to help Rick Jensen find the perfect blackjack tournament.

The response to the upcoming Gambler's Jamboree in Tunica, MS, which includes three seminars by me on basic strategy, card counting, and blackjack tournament strategy, has been outstanding.

INTERVIEW WITH MR. JIMMY WIKE by Henry Tamburin

"I had been doing blackjack tournaments in the past when someone approached me with an idea for a million dollar tournament. However, the structure and the format weren't suitable. I reformatted the concept then took it to our Marketing and Executive Committees where it was approved..."

COUNTER BASIC STRATEGY by Hal Marcus

"Counter Basic Strategy (CBS) is simply a variation of regular Basic Strategy except that using CBS requires a card counting method (such as the Hi-Lo count or K-O count) to determine when and by how much to vary your bet with the count. There are no count indexes to memorize..."

LAS VEGAS TRIP REPORT by LV PRO

"I played another hour-long session at my hotel's $10 double-deck game, winning $100. It would have been more, but I lost the key hand. In a mildly high count, I had $50 bet and doubled down with my nine against the dealer's six. I caught an eight for 17. The dealer turns a two in the hole and, predictably, hits to 18. I thought I had a win locked on that hand, but it was not to be. Disappointing..."

ATLANTIC CITY BLACKJACK REPORT by Alene Paone & Frank Scoblete

"Borgata looks as if it isn't setting the world on fire (yet) but since it didn't have to report its earnings for the quarter, no one really knows if the new luxury resort is a big go, a little go, or a no go....

GETTING SOMETHING FOR NOTHING: "FREE HITS" IN TOURNAMENT PLAY by Kenneth Smith

BLACKJACK STRATEGY CARDS by Henry Tamburin

"When I first studied blackjack some 30 years ago, I practiced my basic playing strategy diligently at home. I memorized the strategy as best I could then my wife, Linda, would deal me cards on a kitchen table. Then we reversed the process and I'd be the dealer and Linda would play. We practiced for weeks until we had the basic playing strategy down cold. Or so we thought..."
