- Hollywood Dave Stann (added June 2006):
- Stanford Wong (added April 2006):
Stanford Wong has probably introduced more players to the world of advantage blackjack than any other gambling author on the planet. He's often called the "Godfather of Blackjack", and he was one of the first inductees into the Blackjack Hall of Fame. His book Casino Tournament Strategy remains a must-read for anyone interested in tournaments.
- Sam Vaughn (added March 2006):
Sam won a cool million bucks by taking first place in the Las Vegas Hilton Million Dollar Blackjack Tournament III in May 2005. Even more impressive is the fact that he made the final table in the same event one year before! Regarded by many as one of the best players in the craft, Sam is also a friendly ambassador for the game.
