The televised World Series of Blackjack concluded this past month with Kenny Einiger the Champion and winner of $250,000 when the dealer broke on the final hand. I did an exclusive interview with Kenny that will appear in the July issue of Casino Player magazine. In this issue of BJI you will read Rick Jensen’s experience in the WSOB (Rick was one of the four finalists playing against Kenny in the championship round).
Below is a summary of who won each round in the WSOB.
