This week’s gambling lesson: Look at variation in addition to expected rate of return when you pick the “right” video poker game for you. Jason and Tony then enjoy an Arturo Fuente Hemingway Perfecto. After that, the Dynamic Duo declaim on the best ways to taste spirits.
In a short solo podcast, Jason briefly discusses the prudence of staying hydrated while consuming adult beverages then riffs on casino charter offers. Then he answers listener questions about humidor prep, cigar veins, smke color and cellophane wrappers.
Tony riffs on the myths surrounding payout odds relative to betting max coin, then Jason and Tony discuss the Don Lucas Angelito Classic, a petite cigar they just enjoyed by way of the Dominican Republic. Then Jason exposes Tony to two different French liqueurs: Chambord and St. Germain. With recipes, woohoo!
Tony explains the dynamics behind why casino gaming revenue is down but non-gaming revenue is up, then Jason shares the value (and contents!) of a traveling cigar kit. Then the boys reminisce about what they like to drink, and why they enjoy it.
Tony explains why you shouldn’t hate the player but rather the player’s club program, then Jason shares some tidbits about appropriate price points for ordinary cigar smoking. Then Jason leads Tony on a guessing game of what beers and spirits earn the widest disparity in ideological favor.
Is there a price point where the extra financial outlay becomes irrelevant?
After listening to Tony ad-lib it about how to “Diamond in a Day” with Caesar’s Entertainment, Jason reviews the Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill cigar — Cigar Aficianado’s #1 pick for 2011 — and addresses criticism of whether CA tips the scales for advertisers. Then Jason and Tony share their impressions about the Tomatin 12-year single-malt Scotch they’re sipping before providing their top brand choices for each class of spirit, for drinkers new to that spirit. A 40-minute extravaganza of fun and wisdom … or something like that.
