The state of Nevada will be hosting the well-known Ultimate Blackjack Tour on April 20, 2007 at the Palms Casino Resort, which tournament officials have added to its official stops. The tournament will show off Blackjack's most skilled and popular players. The Ultimate Blackjack Tour began in Aruba in September 2006. According to the founder of the Ultimate Blackjack Tournament, 1994 Champion of the World Series of Poker and well known professional gamer Russ Hamilton, since the Palms Casino opened their doors, they have never said no, so UBT thinks that they will be the perfect casino to hold the first ever stop of the UBT tour.
Reception to the Ultimate Blackjack Tour has been relatively positive by most of the players. The owner of the Palms Casino Resort, George Maloof, said that they are pleased to be the chosen host of the Ultimate Blackjack Tour in Las Vegas. He added that the UBT has always been filled with anticipation and fun for spectators and players alike. The elimination round will offer Palms' customers the most exciting Blackjack gamearound.
The Ultimate Blackjack Tournament has been a solid mainstay on CBS's list of television shows, always presenting top-class Blackjack action. CBS will be offering two new specials regarding the UBT: The Women of Blackjack, featuring famous female celebrities and The Legends of Blackjack, which will feature the best players in Blackjack.
