I hope you'll agree that the new look is a lot easier on the eyes. In

The new Chat Room, and weekly chats
We recently added a free Chat Room to the message board area of the site.
The chat room is available 24/7, but there are three regularly scheduled
chats each week. Drop by the
BlackjackInfo Message Board and
you will find a link to the Chat Room across the navigation bar at the top.
Our three regularly scheduled chats are:
- Mondays: 7pm Eastern (Mon 2300 UTC)
- Tuesdays:10pm Eastern (Wed 0200 UTC) BJ Newbie Free Tutoring
- Thursdays: 9pm Eastern (Fri 0100 UTC)
Join us at those times for free chat. In particular, if you are relatively new to the game,
drop by for the Tuesday free blackjack tutoring chat hosted by our moderator ICountNTrack.
To participate in the chat room, you will need to register at the BlackjackInfo
