Frederick La Rouque
Messieurs et mesdames! Let me introduce to you the renowned gambler, Monsieur Frederick La Rouque! A contemporary of Samuel Clemens and Madam Guinan, M. La Rouque comes to us from 1893, and also (as if) from the Alternate Universe expansion of 1995.

And with his special skill, he aims to be the smartest person sitting on any side of the table.

And in case you didn't notice, he's played by veteran Star Trek actor Marc Alaimo … leading to a couple of easter eggs in his lore.
