I watched a documentary on the "Church" blackjack team last night. I'm not sure if it has been on before but if it comes on again, it is worth watching if you're interested in that sort of thing.
I have seen several interviews on local stations here in seattle, This is where the founder is from and where it all started.

As I understand it, they were simply ordinary blackjack counters who formed around a social relationship of members of some fundamentalist Christian church. It could be a bowling team or a group of office workers who met at a water cooler and decided to play blackjack as a team.
Is that the "Church" with Arnold Snyder?? I think that Snyder made it into the Blackjack Hall of Fame. He used to publish "Blackjack Forum"
Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians
DVD is on ebay, etc
I do not think it is Arnold Snyder.
