Blackjack Hall of Fame

Dean Hall
Blackjack Hall of Fame

In 2003, a real blackjack hall of fame was created in one of the Californian casinos. Through online voting, out of 21 applicants, only seven were elected into the hall of fame in the first year of its existence.

These people were blackjack professionals. Among them: theorist and writer Arnold Schneider, who wrote more than 10 books and several hundred articles about gambling, mathematics professor Edward Torme, who proved that counting cards in blackjack works, and another mathematician Peter Griffin, who devoted his life to the study of blackjack.

Interestingly, members of this community can eat in a restaurant and stay in the hotel where the casino is located absolutely free of charge, but they are strictly prohibited from playing here.
