Blackjack HOF guy and a tremendous contributor to knowledge about playing this game with an edge

I had a chance to talk to him a couple of times and it was great - he really helped me

wiki - linked - has a nice summary of his accomplishments

There is a thread on his demise at https://www.blackjacktheforum.com/showthread.php?45458-Arnold-Snyder

Nobody contradicts the news.
This forum is more enjoyable after I learned how to use the 'Block this user' button.

I met Arnold Snyder when he came to the studio to do Gambling with an Edge. He was a very nice down-to-earth guy. None of the ego, that I could tell, that usually comes with people at the top of their field.

RIP Arnold.

I never met or communicated with Arnold Snyder but I very much enjoyed reading my autographed copy of his final book, Radical Blackjack, which is very informative, easy to read and humourous. Clearly, he was one of the best writers and players of his generation whose wisdom will be greatly missed. His memory will live on as one of the original inductees of the Blackjack Hall of Fame.

Condolences to his family and friends.
