NO MORE EXCUSES!
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.
How good is your imagination? Can you see yourself sitting at a blackjack table competing against some of the big guns of poker and blackjack with a TV audience of millions of viewers watching you? Can you see yourself being interviewed on national TV with a stack of money so high that you need to stand up so the cameras can see your mug? If this is what youíve always dreamed about but always seemed to find an excuse as to why it couldnít happen to you, Iím here to tell you that your time has come and there are no more excuses. The Ultimate Blackjack Tour (UBT) has everything you have ever dreamed about and its all there for the taking.
Unlike many land-based blackjack tournaments, there are no playing requirements for the UBT. Yep, you read that right, you can forget about having to grind out the usual eight hours of play-time over two days with an average bet of $400 and a cash deposit of $15,000 in the cage or worse, losing a minimum of $8,000 before they deal you in. In Las Vegas (and for that matter just about every casino that holds blackjack tournaments) these play requirements are the hoops you must jump through to participate in these big money tournaments. With the UBT, you can forget about them because there arenít any. So, if want to play for large sums of money that just might change your life style and make you a household name at the same time, keep reading. If you can say U-B-T, your blackjack world and your opportunity for fame and fortune is about to change.
For the first time there will be a blackjack tournament that allows all players regardless of their age or blackjack playing experience, the ultimate chance to show off their skills to not just a few people standing behind their table in a casino, but to the millions of viewers who will be watching them on CBS TV. Will you be the blackjack- version of poker star Phil Hellmuth, hated by most but watched by all, or will you be adored like Annie Duke, who is in just about every household in America that owns a TV. Will you like to play against some of the top blackjack players in the world, the same ones that casinos fear and banish from their tables? You can in the UBT with a format that levels the playing field so that you stand a fair chance to compete against the "BIG GUNS" of blackjack and poker.
Think about this. Could you play one-on-one against Michael Jordan in basketball and beat him? Of course you couldnít. How about playing a round of golf against Tiger Woods and win? I donít think so. The point is that the UBT allows average players the chance to compete on a fairly level playing field against some of the best blackjack and poker players in the world. You could be the one that makes Phil Hellmuth roll on the floor crying from the "bad beat" you put on him to take him down while you are standing in front of the huge pile of prize money with the whole world watching on the number one TV network. This will certainly be something you will never forget - your 15 minutes of fame that everyone will see and remember for a lifetime.
OK so much for the accolades about the UBT. Letís get down to the nuts and bolts of how you can participate and what they have done to the rules to make the tournament more exciting for players and viewers while at the same time leveling the playing field. The BIG announcement came on May 11, 2006, a day that will go down in infamy in the world of blackjack. The UBT signed a 2-year deal not with a cable network, but with the worldís biggest TV network, CBS TV! If you havenít seen the press release announcing the UBT here it is:
May 11, 2006
Season 1 of the UBT will consist of 10 shows premiering on CBS beginning Sept. 16 at 2pm ET, the perfect lead-in to their Prime Time Saturday College Football Game of The Week. Howís that for ultimate exposure?
Actually, the preliminary rounds for Season 1 were filmed last October at the beautiful Lake Las Vegas and the finals were filmed a few weeks later at a CBS studio in Los Angeles. This first UBT tournament was by invitation only and as many of you already know, several BJI writers, including me, were invited to play.
UBT Season 2 will be your opportunity to play against the big boys on national TV. Come on, you know while watching those poker and blackjack tournaments on TV youíve said to yourself a hundred times, "I could beat these guys if they would just let me play against them." Well Christmas came early this year because now you get that chance. There are no more excuses because if you donít want to pay the entry fee to play in the UBT events you can win your seat on line for free. Thatís correct PlayUBT.com will be giving away one seat directly to the final table for every tournament. There are at least 18 tournaments scheduled for Season 2 so will have the chance be in the money and on national TV eighteen different times for free.
There also will be on line tournaments where you can win your seat into a UBT tournament with entry fees staring as low as $1. Or you can pay the $2.5K entry fee to participate in a UBT tournament much like poker players pony up $10K to enter the World Series of Poker.
The first tournament of Season 2 will be held in Aruba the week of Sept. 24, 2006. Additional UBT tournament stops for Season 2 will be held in these cities:
Other locations will be announced shortly.
Here are some of the big players that you will be facing on national TV:
Phil Hellmuth (WSOP Champion)
Johnny Chan (Two Time WSOP Champion)
Phil "Unabomber" Laak
Freddy Deeb (Ultimate Bet Champion 2005)
David "Devil Fish" Ulliott
Robert Williamson 111
Jennifer Tilly (actress and WSOP Womenís Champion 2005)
Kenny Einiger (WSOB 2005 Champion)

A chance like this comes along once in a lifetime so donít let it pass you by because now you have no more excuses.
"May all your aces have a little paint on them, especially in the UBT."
