Chester Gallo
 n.— «I noticed a few changes that he has made to some of the terminology he uses in running his team. The Pinch move remains the same, but he kept referring to signals and gestures that were different from the ones we used to employ, ones which by and large I inherited from the cheating team I was originally initiated into by my mentor Joe. The signals are akin to ones used in sports, a brush on a chin, a swipe at the nose, and the ever-dreaded “Run” signal, which I’m glad to know is still a call out of the name “Chester Gallo.”» —“Pat KOs the Strip Casinos During the Morales/Barrera Fight” by Richard Marcus American Roulette Nov. 28, 2004.
