By LV Tournament Pro
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. He competed in the World Series of Blackjack 2005 and he also finished first in a monthly qualifier in the Las Vegas Hilton’s Million Dollar Blackjack Tournament. His peers consider him to be one of the strongest blackjack tournament players.
Editors Note: This is a continuation of a series describing the ordeal that blackjack tournament players Joe Pane and Kenny Einiger have been going through in order to land a home for a new $2 million dollar blackjack tournament in Las Vegas. It was fully anticipated that that by now it would have been a done deal and they would have been able to announce the name of the casino that will be holding this epic tournament. However, there are still some details to be worked out to close the deal so this announcement will not be forthcoming until later this month or in October. In the meantime enjoy reading about the roadblocks and politics that Joe and Kenny ran up against when proposing this tournament to different casino managers. We will report the name of the casino and the details of this new tournament as soon they become available. If you haven’t read Part 1, please do so before reading part 2 (click here for part 1).

He assures Joe that if he tells his boss that this is a good thing for Binions, it will be a go.
