Blackjack Forum was a trade journal for professional blackjack players, founded in 1981 and published by noted blackjack author Arnold Snyder.[1] Originally a 100-page quarterly journal, it expanded into an online forum[2] which is frequented by professional gamblers, attorneys, industry people, mathematicians and other aficionados. It was considered one of the major newsletters or journals for the blackjack market, along with Stanford Wong's Current Blackjack News.[3]

Frequent authors included Nick Alexander, Peter A. Griffin, James Grosjean, Tommy Hyland, and Snyder. Topics involved card counting, betting systems, software, cheating, comps, casino conditions, interviews with legendary players and authors, and occasional articles on other gambling-related topics such as horse-racing and poker.[4] In 1999, Blackjack Forum was collating player reports, and listing casino rules and conditions in over 350 cities in 24 states and 44 countries.[5]
