Well, the Wiz says you're rated the same no matter the number of players. Any current pit bosses on this site that would know for sure?

I know for sure that most systems include the speed of play, unless the pit isn't entering it that would definitely affect the rating.

Have you kept up with how quantum computing works? See the quote, but how is this different from ordinary probability math, which you of course know well?

Quote: from 'people also ask' at google

What is quantum computing and how does it work?
Quantum computers perform calculations based on the probability of an object's state before it is measured - instead of just 1s or 0s - which means they have the potential to process exponentially more data compared to classical computers.

QUESTION: Were you impressed enough by Burger 51 to recommend tourists staying downtown or on The Strip drive over to see it? Or would you consider it more of a locals thing?

Here’s some more

-Assuming Vegas survives the corona and always needs to up its game to keep people coming to gamble, do you think a zeppelin style floating casino above the city would bring the gamblers? (On non-windy days)

- Would you pose naked for a women’s magazine? ...for a men’s magazine? ...or for gambling magazine? ....to win a bet?

- Do you think you could take the guy on CNN who also calls himself “The Wizard of Odds” in some sort of odds calculating contest or a 3 round boxing match?

- Have you ever seen a 52 standard size deck of cards made out of gold? What unusual decks, if any, have you seen?

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
