Blackjack Tournament Tips
For the last few months, perhaps starting with K. But then, it dawned on me: The majority of players are betting randomly and haphazardly, perhaps playing hunches. There was no planned strategy to their play. I understand that blackjack tournaments are social events. Tournament players enjoy seeing one another during these tournament rendezvous.

By having a plan on how to bet and play even before you enter a blackjack tournament. Oh, I realize there is a small group of players who analyze tournament plays to death. But these same players achieve better results then most, too.

After playing a round you should always ask yourself, "What could I have done better? Here are some simplified strategies or ideas for playing at Las Vegas Hilton with an eye toward reaching the finals:. Perhaps the last point requires some additional comments.
Friday, February 8, Dishonest casino advertising -- part 2. Late last month at the Palms, I noticed some new yellow signs above several banks of video poker machines between the hotel registration desk and the hideous walled compound that now serves as the casino's high-limit slot area. These signs contained numerous errors, and I asked a slot attendant I knew to call a supervisor over so I could point these out. As I explained the errors, it became obvious that the man I was talking to lacked even a basic understanding of video poker.
He assured me, however, that others had pointed out the errors and that they would be fixed. I wrote the Palms through its web site, pointing out numerous but not all of the errors I saw.
My spouse posted a copy with my permission on VPFree2. A couple of nights ago I was in the Palms again and decided to toddle over to see what had been done about the yellow signs. It looked as if they had been changed, but, except for one of them, they're still wrong. The biggest error in the signs that are still wrong is the advertising of games as "full pay" that are not. In the video poker community, "full pay" means the best widely available version of a particular game.
In a very few cases there may be room for argument, but in general there is overwhelming agreement about which pay tables are "full pay" and which are not. Incidentally, "full pay" is not necessarily synonymous with percent payback.
Although virtually all percent payback games are "full pay," not all full-pay games pay back percent. The good news is, the Palms got the payback right. This is not full pay deuces, which the Palms actually has a few yards away, which is distinguished by paying five coins for four of a kind. Full pay deuces is gradually disappearing, but is widely available for quarters in Nevada. This game pays back Another game the Palms advertised as "full pay" that isn't is the 25 and 50 cent loose deuces.
