Famed MIT Blackjack Player to Deliver Main Address at Online Gaming Affiliate Community Conference in May
March 13, 2009 (London, UK) — Company officials for iGaming Business, the world’s leading igaming publisher, have confirmed that Dave Irvine will be delivering the keynote speech at the upcoming Amsterdam Affiliate Conference to be held 1st-2nd May.
Mr. Irvine was most famously a member of the MIT Blackjack Team, a group of undergraduates who won $10 million in the story that inspired the New York Times Bestseller Bringing Down the House and the hit film 21. He is also co-founder of the Blackjack Institute, a graduate of Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management, and owner of a successful engineering consulting company.
“I am delighted to attend the Amsterdam Affiliate Conference. It is one of the premier online gaming affiliate events and I am honored to be the keynote speaker”, Irvine commented on his involvement at the Amsterdam expo.
Mr. Irvine is scheduled to describe his experiences as part of one of the most notorious teams of gamblers ever, and the story of how it took the resources of multi-billion dollar casinos to put an end to their $10 million winning streak. He will demonstrate the perfectly legal strategies the team used, and will tell first-hand stories of the double life he led as a normal college student during the week and a high-stakes gambler at the weekend, the cat and mouse game he played with casinos, the aliases and disguises he used to camouflage his play, and the incredible lengths the casinos would go to in order to track him down and throw him out.
“We can’t wait to hear Dave Irvine give the insider story on one of the most famous gambling stories ever,” said Alex Pratt, lead organizer for the event. “He’s one of the most interesting figures in gaming, and we’re thrilled to share his insight and wit with the attendees of the Amsterdam Affiliate Conference.”
Mr. Irvine’s 35-minute keynote presentation and subsequent question-and-answer session with attendees will take place on Saturday 2nd May during the Amsterdam Affiliate Conference.
