Blackjack Insider Newsletter, Jan. 2005, #60
A WORD FROM HENRY
We have an exclusive for BJI members. Max Rubin was kind enough to allow me to publish this year's Preliminary Round Test that was given to the 104 guests at the 2005 Blackjack Ball. You can take the test to see how you would have done against some of the world's best blackjack players. You can also view the guest list and Agenda in my Inside the Blackjack Ball report.
Frank Scoblete is holding another Gambler's Jamboree on May 21 and 22 at the Windsor Casino Hotel in Ontario, Canada. I will be speaking on blackjack. All BJI subscribers can get a 10% discount to this exciting event. Read Frank Scoblete's Atlantic City Report for details.
We had a typo in the recent Blackjack Insider Lite on the date of the premier airing of the World Series of Blackjack on the GSN network. The first GSN episode will air on Friday Jan 21 at 10 pm EST. For details on this first round including the background of the five world class players that competed see my Inside the World Series of Blackjack report.
Last year subscribers to BJI answered a survey on ethics in gambling. The results of the survey can be seen on the show, Las Vegas What Would You Do If, on the Travel Channel. I also appear on the show. Next airing is 1/15/05 at 4 pm (EST).
This expanded issue of BJI is loading with great articles and reports. Read about Eliot Jacobson's first bad experience with variance. LV Tournament Pro got on his soap box (again) and offers his opinion on the state of blackjack in Las Vegas and those casinos that see fit to bar players from blackjack tournaments. Our Insider, The Suit, offers advice to advantage players on how to act toward the floor and fellow players to avoid the casino radar. Check out JPB's and Barfarkel's Las Vegas trip reports and Alene Paone and Frank Scoblete's report on blackjack conditions in Atlantic City. Kenneth Smith made a mistake on the last hand in a blackjack tournament and reports what happened and what he would have done differently. If poker is your thing, read Bill Burton's article on the most common misplayed hands in Texas Hold'em. Rick Jensen kindly provides BJI subscribers with a discount code for American Airlines flights to Vegas. And finally we've updated our schedule of blackjack tournaments.
I had no success in the recent Las Vegas Hilton and Frontier blackjack tournaments. In both, skilled players on the last hand used surrender in one case and insuring their hand for less when the dealer showed an ace in the other to wind up with more chips than me. A word of advice. If you play tournaments, you'd better bone up on these two potential last hand playing strategies.
