LAS VEGAS BLACKJACK REPORT:

Tournament Pro is the pseudonym of a skilled advantage blackjack player and an experienced tournament player who has won over $400,000 playing in blackjack tournaments.

His peers consider him to be one of the strongest blackjack tournament players in Las Vegas.

On their shoe game they deal only 4 decks out of 6.
