Meet the Author

The authors, known in blackjack as the “four horsemen,” were stationed in the army’s Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland when they published this work in 1957, completing, at the time, the most extensive mathematical analysis of blackjack ever. (This was pre-computer.)

Arnold Snyder, author of ten books, including Blackbelt in Blackjack and the Big Book of Blackjack, is the world’s foremost blackjack authority. He is one of the seven charter members of the Blackjack Hall of Fame.

Edward O’ Thorp, who’s contributing the foreword, is the author of the famous classic, Beat the Dealer.
