Default Re: First published use of Kelly Criterion in poker?

Who was the first to publish on using Kelly Criterion for poker risk of ruin?

Who is the first to apply it to poker? That I don't know. The first to apply it to gambling was Thorp in the early 60s. Its application to poker came much later.

Can you give me some sort of timeframe to look at?

I'm assuming it was pre-internet, it should in a book?
