Blackjack Tournament Magic May 5th 2018
At the Blackjack Magic Tournament of May 5, 2018, seven players battle for the cash prize of $50,000. Ten hands were played with the seven players betting with different amounts.
Douglas bets $200, Mark $300, Robert $600, James $200, Valerie $200, Byron $200, and Lisa $400. Cards were dealt to players for the first hand with the dealer closing in on 21 against Lisa’s 17.

At the 7th hand, the dealer busted and by the 8th hand, Byron went all in, amidst shouts from the audience.
