`Fall Tournament Preview' Offers 360 Tournaments Worth $7.2 Million in Prizes

15 August 2001

CHERRY HILL, New Jersey – (Press Release) -- Aug. 13, 2001 -- The August/September edition of Blackjack Confidential Magazine features the ``Fall Tournament Preview,'' which focuses on 360 tournaments worth more than $7.2 million in prizes at casinos throughout the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.

The ``Fall Tournament Preview'' includes competitive gambling events from blackjack and dice to pai gow poker and slots in this special edition of Blackjack Confidential Magazine, the ``premium player's guide to tournaments, casinos and entertainment.'' In tournament play, players compete among themselves -- instead of against the house -- for substantial prizes created by their entry fees.

Included in the exclusive listings are 87 major blackjack tournaments with more than $2.6 million in purses and 136 blackjack mini tournaments, worth another $194,291 in weekly or monthly prizes. ``Other'' tournaments -- from backgammon to video poker -- offer still another $4.4 million in prize money.

Many of the tournaments listed in Blackjack Confidential Magazine are being announced for the first time. Among 87 major blackjack tournaments, 20 are being hosted by Las Vegas casinos while 46 others are at such Nevada destinations as Laughlin, West Wendover, Jackpot, Jean, Reno and Henderson. Other gaming regions, especially, Minnesota, Mississippi and Louisiana, have substantially increased their tournament schedules during the past year.

The August/September edition also features details of the first triple- deck blackjack games to be offered in Atlantic City, N.J., as well as casino scouting reports and blackjack ratings from casinos throughout the U.S.
