Sounds pretty good. Obviously, I'm not going down to London but I can try enter online. The top 3 overall stakers and the top 3 with the highest number of hands wills get through.

I am guessing by some of the stakes that people play, I've got no chance at entry via the top stakers but I think I may have a chance buy using the total number of hands. Stakes are only £3 a hand for the live blackjack.

I am a pretty decent blackjack player and so can get the house edge down to about 0.5%. This means I can play a large number of hands without losing too much and may even make a small profit. The bonus about being online live roulette is that you can card count. They change the deck pretty high up but still, if you know a lot of big cards are due, you can up your stakes. Probably not enough to overcome the house edge but enough so it feels like you have a chance of winning.

Live Casino, Grosvenor

I've never actually played a blackjack tournament before. I guess there is a lot of game theory involved. I'll have to figure some strategy out if I get through! If you fancy your chances, sign up here

    It’s all about position in Blackjack tournaments, you want to act last so you know exactly how many points you need, i.e if the rest of the players have almost bust you don’t need to bet big but if the other players have built up a huge amount of points your going to need to bet max.
