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

August 1, 2005. As I write this article, the much anticipated meeting to finalize all of the details of the new and exciting 2 Million Dollar Tournament in Las Vegas is less than 72 hours away. First, I want to personally thank Joe Pane and Kenny Einiger, who without their help and hard work, this article and hopefully this tournament could not have been completed as they have provided me with a time line and valuable insiderís information including all the obstacles that have been thrown in front of them during the process of negotiating this tournament with different casino operators. Actually Joe Pane faced most of the obstacles and thatís how Kenny Einiger role in this process has increased.
The Las Vegas Hilton launched the first ever Million Dollar BJ Tournament where one player received a lump sum first place prize of 1 Million Dollars. Jimmy Wike, who was VP of Casino Operations at the LVH during this time, conceived this Million Dollar Tournament. This is Jimmy Wikeís Tournament and it will always be remembered as the "original" Million Dollar Tournament. Jimmy, by the way, is a respected casino executive, who is look upon by both players and casino peers as a fair man with an impeccable reputation. More importantly, he never looked down at the skills of tournament players but rather he saw them as customers, which if marketed correctly, could generate revenue for his casino.
