We are now into the semi-finals, and our 6 qualifiers will be playing blackjack blitz.  It is played like Blackjack, except the payouts.  Now, each player will place a bid (IN PRIVATE), and then the cards are dealt.  You can split cards if you have a pair, but you can only split once, and you can double on ANY number.  Win the hand, and it now depends on several things.  Win earns you 1x payout.  Get 21 (3+ cards) and the multiplier increases by 1.  As well, some of the cards have a star on them.  Each star in your winning hand and dealer's hand will increase the multiplier by 1.  Blackjack pays 3x + increase the multiplier by 3 for each star in YOUR HAND ONLY.  And if you can get a 6 card charlie (hold 6 cards and score 21 or less), you will earn 4x + increase multiplier by 1 for each star in your hand.  

Minimum wager is $ 1,000, Maximum is $ 25,000, bet increments are $1.....after 30 minutes, the min is now $ 5,000 and the max is $ 100,000.  And for the last part of the game, the minimum is now $ 5,000 and you can now go all in on any hand.

The four players with the highest bank balance will play in the finals, Topical Warfare.
