Bob Bright 
Bob Bright earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and then spent several years as an executive for Johns-Manville Corporation. In 1974 he quit his job, packed up family, and moved to Las Vegas. His dream was to become a Professional Blackjack Card Counter. In the next 3-4 years he earned significant amounts from the casinos which resulted in him being “barred” from many venues. He then joined the Pacific Stock Exchange and began trading computer modeled option strategies (many of which he designed himself from his blackjack math models). Today, Bob is a well respected man of the finance world. He owns a very profitable trading company and employs several well known poker pros. He considers himself a student of the game of poker and loves to play against the best players in the world.
