BLACKJACK BALL 2006
THE ULTIMATE INVITE
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 in 2005 and also finished first in a monthly qualifier in the Las Vegas Hiltonís Million Dollar Blackjack Tournament. He was also selected to play in the Ultimate Blackjack Tour, which pitted the top blackjack players against the top poker players in a unique blackjack tournament that will air on TV in 2006. His peers consider him to be one of the strongest blackjack tournament players.
If you are a politician, the ultimate invite is dinner at the White House with the President and top leaders of this country. Itís something that all elected officials yearn for, their long awaited acknowledgement from their political peers.
If you are blessed with the athletic ability of throwing a baseball 95 mph past opposing hitters, or a quarterback whose arm can release a weird shape ball with such precise accuracy and precision that the ballís flight looks like a soaring eagle landing into the outstretched hands of his receiver for the winning touchdown, you then will receive your professionís ultimate invite, which in baseball is the mid season All Star game, and in football itís the season ending Pro Bowl.
In baseball the fans vote for the players who receive this award and in football their fellow players vote for the top players who are invited to compete .The latter is much more rewarding as who knows best about your skills than the players who play alongside of you, and against you.
In the very secret world of professional blackjack players there are no fans to vote you in to the ultimate event, which is Max Rubinís annual Blackjack Ball. The ball is so secret that itís location is kept under wraps until days before the actual event. But itís this event that puts the stamp of approval of how you are accepted into the world of professional blackjack.
There are no fans in this world that ask you, the blackjack pro, for your autograph or give you a standing ovation upon your victory. In this secret world, your ability to keep your real identity a mystery to the casinos and their executives is paramount. You see they are your overhead; they are what stand between you and the money. Their goal is to remove you from the games you have mastered by any means necessary including sometimes illegally.
There are some casino executives who would cut off their greedy hands to infiltrate this gathering of the top 100 blackjack players in the world. But that has never happened and based upon the series of security checkpoints leading up to this event and its secret location, that would be next to impossible task.
The only way to secure an invite to this party is through the host and organizer Max Rubin. If Max doesnít know about you, which will be rare as Max knows who all the pros are, then someone who is a member of the Blackjack Hall Of Fame must vouch for you. Otherwise, you are going to be on a very long list of aspiring players that wish they got the "Ultimate Invite".
I have been fortunate to have met the strict requirements and have attended the last two Blackjack Balls, which have been held for the past 10 years. The first year I attended first was in 2005. I wasnít really sure what to expect and my nervousness was evident as I was very quiet, which so is unlike me. But I knew that this was going to be a cherished moment in my blackjack career. I was going into a world that very few people ever see, but many yearn to.
