Many of those looking for an edge at the casino have a flash in the plan aspect to their personality. They burn brightly for a short time before it all comes crashing down. Tommy Hyland has more of a workman-like attitude for proceedings and its served him well.
Hyland managed and continues to manage a card counting team, which is one form or another has been together since 1979. The team is currently believed to have around 15 members and they are known for their loyalty to Hyland.
His team started with just four members putting $4000 each into the scheme and has flourished ever since, having made upwards of $60,000 in its first month. It’s safe to assume that he’s made several million dollars since that time.
