The Baccarat Hall of Fame is not a brick-and-mortar building like the Hockey Hall of Fame, but there are two people at the top of the list who made advances in the world of baccarat. The first is Akio Kashiwagi. He was a player that casinos loved to see. He once won $6m in one sitting, but he also managed to lose $10m in another sitting. He regularly wagered up to $200,000 at a time on hands, and he received the nickname Warrior for his incredible intensity when playing at the table. His lack of strategy and playing the game based on pure courage gave him an excellent reputation among other casino patrons. However, it did not translate into profitability, as his courage often led him to make calls based on emotion rather than calculation. This approach made him hugely popular among other casino patrons, but it also made him some enemies. He was found murdered at his home, rumoured to have occurred because of Triad involvement.
