Samuel Pinney is a popular journalist and life-long gambler. After being taught to play blackjack by his grandmother at the age of eight, he quickly progressed to playing poker for sweets and conkers. He runs regular casino parties at his house and specializes in the gaming side of betting--and beating the system. Almost all of his winnings from gambling are spent on gloves and waistcoats, much to the annoyance of his girlfriend.
