    Blackjack Hall of Fame

    The Blackjack Hall of Fame began in 2002 when 21 legendary blackjack players, authors and luminaries were selected for potential nomination. Only seven would be inducted.
    For the first month, voting was open to everyone through an online poll, but the final decision was made by elite professional players whose insider experience helped them to pick the most worthy candidates. Interestingly the winners chosen by the judges were very similar to the finalists picked out through the online poll.

    Two new people were inducted to the Black Jack Hall of Fame for the next two years, but then after that the number was dropped to just one new Blackjack Hall of Fame member per year.

    The actual Blackjack Hall of Fame is hosted at the Barona Casino in Lakeside, California, and hosts high-stakes televised tournaments featuring Hall of Fame members. Artifacts include plaques with portraits and biographies dedicated to these Blackjack champs.

    The most interesting exhibit shows off cheating devices that members used over the years. Hidden cameras, shoes with built-in computers, trick cards and other ingenious toys that have all pushed the limits of perfecting the game of blackjack.

    Anyone who enjoys playing blackjack, whether online or at the casinos, might find it interesting to learn more about these Blackjack Hall of Fame members. While they might not be household names, all of them have changed the game of blackjack forever.

    I know a Canadian, young man, college educated, and an attendee of the 3 of the BJ BASHES that should be inducted.

    I also think Bojack and Maz, for sure. But politics will play a big part I am sure.

    He's different than I expected, looks like a wise-guy.
    Apparently he is of Romanian descent, like Ion?

    Default Blackjack Hall of Fame Members



    At the turn of the millennium the Blackjack Hall of Fame was nothing more than an idea that was thrown around in professional blackjack players’ circles. Many professional players and game theorists believed it was about time that the greatest minds of the game receive international recognition of their greatness.

    Finally in 2002 Max Rubin, the famed author and gambling commentator, managed to convince the Barona Casino Resort in San Diego, California, to establish a small blackjack museum that will celebrate and help commemorate all those who have contributed greatly to the development, understanding and popularity of the game.
