Today I recorded challenger "Dr. Antonius" for the single-machine video poker record. We played at the M on what was a very fast machine, as you'll see. I have looked at the first 80 hands and detected no errors. However, I've been known to make mistakes from time to time.

I would appreciate any help from the forum to check this footage for errors. Thanks in advance!

Note: Original footage removed, below is the finished product.

I forgot to mention that the game is 9-6 Jacks.

You were cutting off the first card in the video so I FF a bit, I didn't look at the entire thing, however at 3:03
we have Jc 10c 6c Ad 8h

He elects to hold the A J. I'm not sure if 2 penalty cards are enough to not hold the J 10.

Penalty cards don't matter when its AJo vs JTs. JTs will always be the right hold in 9/6 JoB. I've tested many scenarios on the hand analyzer and always get the same answer.
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

Ya, I know, even the 9 isn't enough. I don't know why I choose to say "I'm not sure" other than the fact that I don't have a program on this computer and I didn't run it.

P.S. he clearly changed his hold because he saw the 2 penalties. Perhaps he doesn't know that one?

Yes, that was an error.

EV of holding 10-J suited = 0.480173
EV of holding J-A off-suit = 0.474314
Error = 0.005859.

Per my rule of subtracting 3 hands for every 1% of error, he will be deducted 3*(0.005859/0.01) = 1.758 hands from the total played.

There is no exception to the rule that J-10 suited beats J-A off-suit. It is J-10 suited vs. J-K off-suit that depends on penalty cards.

Interestingly, he initially held the J-10 suited, but changed it.

This is a bit off topic, but a story some of you may enjoy.

Before the challenge, the challenger and I went outside of the casino to shoot my introduction. Given that it was game 7 of the World Series, I was wearing a Dodgers shirt. As we were getting ready to start an old man came along and said something to the effect of, "I see you're wearing a Dodgers shirt. You must know a thing or two about baseball, would you like a baseball trivia question?"

Although sports is not my strong suit, especially baseball, I said sure. He then went into about 20 minutes of question after question, interrupted only by stories of how stellar his Little League team did that he used to coach. These questions were way over my head. I got zero right. Here are a couple examples:

"What two people are in the Baseball Hall of Fame who never played the game, coached it, owned a team, umpired, etc..."

"If a ball is hit foul and is about to roll back into the field of play, and an infielder throws his mitt at the ball while still out of bounds, what should the umpire call?"

I think I now know a little how those I torture with trivia questions feel. Probably some divine revenge.

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello are "in the Hall of Fame" in that their "Who's on First?" routine from the movie The Naughty Nineties runs pretty much continuously. The "sort of" is Homer Simpson, who is fictional and thus isn't really "people."

Foul ball. The "three bases" rule applies only if it is a fair ball. (Official Baseball Rule 7.05(b).) Note that it is two bases if it is done to a thrown ball.

To be fair, I would have said, "Batter gets three bases and all runners score," before looking it up.

That is right on the first two. He did not seem to know about Homer.

Maybe I phrased the question badly, but he said the umpire should rule it a foul ball, because you're allowed to throw equipment like a mitt out of the field of play. Just not in it.
