Bob Ciaffone has played poker all his life, and has been a professional player and familiar Vegas face since 1980. Ciaffone has an excellent reputation both as a poker writer and poker player. His book "Omaha Holdem Poker", published in 1984, is still considered the defining work on that form of poker by the big money pot-limit Omaha players. His book "The Official Rules of Poker" is the first comprehensive poker rulebook ever written on the game. He has had a popular regular poker column in "The Card Player" magazine since 1991. Ciaffone has extensive experience at no-limit hold'em, no-limit ace-to-five lowball, pot-limit Omaha, and pot-limit Omaha high-low eight-or-better. He was once voted as number three in the world at pot-limit Omaha in an informal readers poll of the top players at each poker form. He has competed in the $10,000 buy-in World Championship (no-limit hold'em) seven times, with a 3rd place finish in 1987.
Stewart Reuben is a familiar face for big-bet poker players on two continents. He has a home in a suburb of London, and is a regular player in the big pot-limit Omaha and London lowball games of that city. During the "World Series of Poker" tournament he is normally found in Las Vegas for several weeks of high-stakes action. Stewart has played poker professionally for the last 30 years. He is also one of the world's leading chess promoters. Stewart may well be the earliest-ever poker columnist, having written for Mayfair magazine back in the 60's for a couple of years. Reuben's main experience lies in pot-limit Omaha, pot-limit London lowball, pot-limit seven-card stud, and also limit seven stud. Stew prefers money play rather than tournaments; more intimidation. He has a swashbuckling poker style that makes him a much-feared player. Opponents often leave the game losers, scratching their heads, and opining that a player who takes so many risks ought to be broke. But Stew keeps right on winning.
