Hello everyone and happy April Fools Day! Now, having said that, let me introduce myself. My name is Michael Dalton and I am the author of the book Blackjack: A Professional Reference (also known as the Encyclopedia of Casino Twenty-One). I also published the newsletter Blackjack Review during 1992 through 1998. I am retired now having worked for NASA for over 31 years. My website http://www.bjrnet.com is still up and running although it is in dire need of an overhaul. You will also find the complete contents of my book online here -- which is available for free. I am essentially retired now although I still sell some product on my website and occasionally give advice from time to time. I still enjoy playing and beating blackjack occasionally but I much prefer poker today.
