My daughter has expressed an interest in getting married in Vegas. As locals, do you or Heather have any insider advice on the do's and don'ts of throwing a Las Vegas Wedding?
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Reminder of the live stream today at 3:00. I will take questions for another couple hours or so.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

thanks for including my question in your "ask the Wizard" at WoO
the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

In addition to Vegas, you've studied most of the tribal casinos in Southern California. Which ones do you recommend for recreational players?

How do think tribal casinos compare to Vegas casinos? Better, worse or about the same?

OK I admit that for me at least, to some degree, this show is benefiting from what you might call virus-induced boredom, all this staying at home, that is. But last show was pretty good.

You might see a darkside Craps player taking down his darkside line bet when the bet travels to the 6 or 8. For a small consideration, he might allow you to take over the bet for yourself instead of removing it.  You're making a Mark out of him in a way, so are you being unethical?

If you could choose only one restaurant in Las Vegas to bring out-of-town guests to eat at (and they’re not picky about the kind of food, dietary restrictions, classiness, etc) which one would it be?

Good show with some good questions this week.

P.S What happened to name that tune?

P.P.S. I vote for the D'Alembert system next.
