By Joe Pane (formerly LV Tournament Pro)

Joe Pane (formerly LV Tournament Pro) is a skilled advantage blackjack player and an experienced tournament player who has won over half a million dollars in blackjack tournaments. He competed in the World Series of Blackjack in 2005 and finished first in a monthly qualifier in the Las Vegas Hiltonís Million Dollar Blackjack Tournament. He also was selected to play in the inaugural Ultimate Blackjack Tour and recently played in the UBT tournament stops in Aruba and St. Kitts. He participated in the beta testing of the UBT software ( ), he actively contributes to the message boards on, and he also writes the column" House of Pane" in the All In Blackjack magazine.

For the most part, the island has still remained untouched by the over development of most Caribbean Islands in their attempt to capture the tourism market. By most accounts, there are more monkeys on the island than humans, and that can lead to some interesting moments, and at times the funniest things you will ever see. The monkeys are still considered wild but their constant interactions with humans have made them, well, just friendly neighbors, who sometimes donít know when to stop borrowing your things and never returning them. Hereís a real, funny example.

One of the UBT dealers was at a local beach bar enjoying a cold beer and admiring the beautiful day in paradise. While she was gazing at the calm seas of the Caribbean, one of the local monkeys decided that he really liked her...
