Tournament Blackjack

Everyone loves playing blackjack. In version of the game the objective of the game is to beat your opponent, not the house, by amassing a larger chipstack than your foe. The twist?
They receive exactly the same sequence of cards as you. So, winning becomes a matter of being smarter than your opponent – not lucking out. Each game consists of 25 hands, and is played with a five minute time limit. You start off with $10,000 – and with a penalty of $500 per unplayed hand it pays to there’s no house edge – giving you a realistic prospect of coming out ahead!
