This Issue includes:
New Blackjack Tournament Site:
This project has been in the works for a while now, but a recent development in the blackjack
tournament world has me rushing to get things finished. Blackjack Confidential magazine
announced in their November issue that they were suspending publication indefinitely after
the December 2003 issue. They've long served as the bible among tournament players for
accurate schedules of upcoming events, strategy articles, and news of interest to avid
With their exit from this role, a new resource is sorely needed, and I hope this new site will
be the solution. Please come take a look at the future of tournament coverage, at
available is a new message board for discussing tournament topics. Coming soon will be the
online, accurate, instantly updated schedule information we've always needed.
Please drop by today and sign up at the message forums. You all
know how tough it is to get a new message board started, but this community deserves a vibrant
place for the discussion of our favorite pastime.
Store now open at BlackjackInfo.com
Another new section of BlackjackInfo.com opened this month.
Bayview Strategies is an online store at BlackjackInfo.com
selling a handful of personally recommended books, software and strategy cards. In particular, I'm excited
to be able to offer reasonably priced software for blackjack practice, simulation, and training.
Also available in the store are laminated strategy cards for various numbers of decks.
Blackjack tournaments on Game Show Network?
That's the story in an Associated Press article (link no longer available)
today. Game Show Network is planning a weekly show to premiere next year, featuring
blackjack tournament action and $250,000 in prize money. As soon as I learn more, I'll post it at
the new BlackjackTournaments.com site.
Travel Channel Show Coming Up, Maybe
Later this month, be sure to tune in to the first broadcast of the Travel Channel coverage
of the Las Vegas Hilton Million Dollar Blackjack Tournament. The episode will reportedly
air November 27th, but checking that date at the Travel Channel's website doesn't seem
to pan out. I'll likely do a mailing to remind everyone once I have a definite time and
Two online blackjack tournaments
There are two November blackjack tournaments at online casinos worth mentioning. You'll have to hurry to participate in the first. That event, with a $10 entry fee at Sands of the Caribbean ends tonight at midnight. The second event is month-long, at Intercasino. There, a $25 entry fee gets you a shot at the $3000 first place prize. These kinds of events will be easily found once the new schedule information
is up and running at the new tournament site.
That's it for now. Best of luck, online and off! -Ken-
