Another one of the hall of famer is Peter Griffin. Who is Peter
Griffin? He is the one who exposed a course about mathematics and
gambling, but after just awhile he started on loosing the game and
decided to step back and rethink his research and he use all the
resources he has and all of his knowledge to know and study the
probabilities of blackjack. Then, after he discovers those things he

written by Lawrence Revere, Thomas Hyland decided to play blackjack and
because of the knowledge he learned from the book he created a team of
four players to play for Atlantic City Casino�s. However, this team was
arrested because of cheating, but the judge thinks differently when he
heard all the testimonies and decided to rule under Hyland�s favor.

house advantage in blackjack. He also used some methods he developed to
win at roulette.
Ken Uston is one of the original members of blackjack hall of fame and
he is known to be a master of disguise, well he learned to disguise
himself because he was banned in almost every casino and why he was
