Bishop of the First Church of Blackjack Arnold Snyder encourages card counters "to give greed a chance." Snyder published "Blackjack Forum" (1981-2003) and wrote books, "Blackbelt in Blackjack", "Blackjack Wisdom", and "The Poker Tournament Formula", in addition to publishing Blackjack Forum. Snyder is also in the Blackjack Hall of Fame. Snyder published JSTAT's card counting and casino articles. JSTAT considers Snyder his mentor and Snyder is pleased that JSTAT preserved his sermon.
