In doing so, they effectively created the first card-counting system, a forerunner of more sophisticated systems later used by the MIT teams and others. Meanwhile, their book is being reissued this summer with a new introduction by Edward O. McDermott worked for the federal government before spending 32 years with IBM in market research and business planning. Their study created a buzz in gambling circles and a book deal for the authors. Using desktop calculators, the four plotted the probabilities for thousands of hands, recalibrating the odds as each theoretical card was played. But nobody made reservations for Las Vegas. Baldwin returned to grad school, eventually leaving mathematics to work in applied statistics and data processing. Until recently, though, the blackjack world had puzzled over one lingering mystery: Whatever happened to the legendary Four Horsemen, a group of young US Army researchers who published the first groundbreaking guide to winning blackjack more than 50 years ago?

How they beat the odds and roger baldwin blackjack a small fortune in the process has become the stuff of pop-culture legend. But until the Internet came along, says McDermott, nobody showed much interest in their whereabouts.

McDermott, Baldwin, and Cantey signed autographs and received a standing ovation. Maisel, who later taught computer science at Georgetown University, was part of a team assigned to analyze such problems as weapons trajectory. None had gone on to become a professional gambler or recognized blackjack authority. While pleased to see the Horsemen get their due, Thorp, who now heads a California-based investment firm, says the four had neither the time nor the tools to develop their research into a comprehensive gaming strategy. The four stayed in touch, though, getting together once every decade or so. McDermott and Baldwin had done graduate work in mathematics at Columbia University. Maisel agrees. Cantey abandoned plans to become a preacher and pursued a career in government research. Baldwin and Cantey were card players as well, mostly of the penny-ante variety. Shrouded by myth, the story of the Four Horsemen is a classic American tale of an oddball mix of academics and amateur card enthusiasts matching wits with the gambling establishment — yet never cashing in by beating the casinos at their own game. After crunching numbers for 18 months — Thorp later borrowed their notebooks and validated their findings on an IBM computer at MIT — Baldwin visited Vegas to study how casinos worked. Cantey, a sergeant, was the ranking officer among the foursome and its only African-American. Unlike the JASA article, the book was written for nonstatisticians.
