 Cardano's Cubic Craze
Gerolamo Cardano was an influential mathematician from the early 1500’s who pioneered the theory of probability and the solution to the cubic equation.
As a student, Cardano was frivolous and he described that "gambling was not only his favorite pastime but also his main source of income" (Ore 7), which led to "gathering notes on the subject of chance and probability" (Ore 8).
Cardano was the first to publish the solution to the cubic equation, which revealed a controversy about who should be given credit.

 Cardan biography
Girolamo Cardano was the illegitimate child of Fazio Cardano and Chiara Micheria.
In fact he had discovered in 1543 that Tartaglia was not the first to solve the cubic equation by radicals and therefore felt that he could publish despite his oath.
Four years ago when Cardano was going to Florence and I accompanied him, we saw at Bologna Hannibal Della Nave, a clever and humane man who showed us a little book in the hand of Scipione del Ferro, his father-in-law, written a long time ago, in which that discovery was elegantly and learnedly presented.

 Newsletter 44, November 2000: History and Culture in Mathematics Education
The fame of Gerolamo Cardano (Pavia, 1501 Rome, 1576) is presently linked to an algebraic formula (the solution by radicals of the equations of degree 3) and a mechanical device (the Cardanic joint or suspension).
In the final session an attempt was made to sketch a balance of Cardano’s importance both as a scientist and as a writer.
All the speakers, however, agreed that Cardano was probably the most successful among the Renaissance writers in spreading and popularizing around Europe the most advanced scientific knowledge of his time.

 Game Report: Primero
Cardano mentions a variation, in which you are trying to get the lowest hand rather than the highest.
And it explains Cardano's obsession with the mean values for a good score in each hand type -- he is explaining how to calculate what to bid, given a two-card opening hand.
Cardano instead states explicitly, "If no one bets, they are compelled to exchange one or two cards according to their judgement." So I am assuming that this is a difference between the English and Italian games.

Many of Cardano's ideas on the laws of probabilities weren't widely recognized by the mathematics community until decades after his death.
He wrote, "On the cast of one die, the chances are equal that a given point will turn up at least once in three throws, or again that one of three points will turn up in one throw." It turns out that these two experiments do not produce the same probabilities.
