Everybody. Welcome to you can bet on that podcast for the recreational. Gambling is marked of all and sitting across from me at a safe. Distance is Dr Michael. Oh I don't know about safe safe distant. We've got these pop filters in France. I think that'll catch anything well for our listeners. Who have already heard and this should come. As no surprise our trip to Biloxi in April has been postponed. It's really something because well okay. Last time we recorded it was on March eleventh two weeks ago and we were you know we were talking about basketball pools. We had vinnie on. And we're saying hey we'll see in Alexi the very next day that will. I'll tell you that night is when they postponed the NBA right. You know and then everything started falling apart after that and now it's like we're living in a different world right and really at that time right before then. All the podcasters we said well. Are we still going to go? We also yeah. Yeah you know we still plan on going like a weekly or now. I don't think he'd be able to get a plane even if you wanted to go and a lot of them cancelled so many flight not just that but with the casinos even be. Open the right place to stay. Well I heard yesterday. That San Manuel Casino here in southern California plans to reopen April twelfth. Okay and it was one of the first ones to close in our area and the host their texts. My brother yesterday and said that they plan to reopen April twelfth. Okay now that's just sure it might get pushed out but okay so it may not be allowed to. If the governor continues the stay at home that we have here in California right well the idea is to you know it's like okay. We're all going to get infected. But that's not all get infected at once right. That's the idea right. Not Overwhelm spread out. Yeah the medical hospital system so anyway Yeah let's see. Some states don't have a lot Nebraska. How many casinos in Nebraska? Yeah not enough and I think for me. I don't know of any casinos in the United States. That are open now. There might be some hold outs or like small card rooms some state with like one or two case so it it could be the case but certainly all major casinos are closed downs. And you probably don't WanNa go to one anyway. It's taken an awful big rig. Well it's like other people working near don't want to be sure sure it's like the guys on do for a win said. They said they didn't come up with this. But they said that casinos are just land-based cruise ships right right. Yeah that's pretty much good way of putting it. Yeah or many of you probably received an email with a video message from Caesar's CEO Tony Rodeo. I think that was either yesterday the day before. And he did talk about. You know it was talking about. Were closed and all the things you'd expect to see. But he did get kind of specific about their Caesar's rewards program and so let's talk about some of the things that he mentioned in that message number one no reward. Credits will expire while their properties are closed. So you know if after sixty days you you don't play or you don't somehow everyone's expires because they're closed for sixty days and it's just like. Oh sorry that's the idea. You have to do something every sixty days to keep your reward credits. Active right and that could be playing at a casino or sometimes using their credit card something. So He's saying okay. None of those will expire while. They're close now. He didn't say what the alternative was like the day that they opened back up. Do they expire that? They probably not. I mean the idea would be that they would add however many days. They're closed onto that sixty days but he didn't he didn't say anything specific number two and I'm going to quote him here. They're prepared to modify tier status earning requirements depending on how long this lasts and we will share details about these changes as we get more clarity and that makes sense too because with the casinos being closed this long. Oh my gosh. I can't get my diamond status right. Make it every year right. It might be hard for a lot of people so again. They don't have details out yet but at least they're taking that into account so I would guess that they would just lower the numbers. How many credits it would take to get to if there. But we'll see about that number three. They're going to refund all seven stars experienced credit redemptions. That are or will be affected and they will be bookable at later dates and that addicts you Mike. Right right because I had baseball tickets for padres opening weekend. Which is this week Yeah a would have been this weekend right and you used your seven stars experience points to get those right so again no details but you won't lose them. Apparently and then finally they will work to reschedule events and offers customers have received and obviously that won't be every single event and the NFL draft right. They were gonNA this big thing. That's part of it but it'll be interesting to see how they handle the offers because we're losing hundreds and hundreds of dollars in free play that we would have gotten because we do go at Harris Southern California now. I can't imagine that they're going to give us everything that we missed right. Because it's not like we showed up and played. I mean that's the ideas out there to play but we'll see if they compensate us in some way and I gotta feeling compensation means like well the steak knives that they ordered that are already there in the back room. We're GONNA get those at some doubt forgetting our free play kind of like well you know. What can they do? File for unemployment. Put it in your application for unemployment. Look I lost a lot of free by a lot of free. Just say it's about ninety. I would've gotten a return of about ninety percent. Yeah right anyway. It was nice that he came out and talked about these things. He didn't talk about the acquisition by Eldorado at all. Right knows if that you know. There's talk about that. Maybe not even going through because of how the stock market's going and all that stuff sure sure well that creates value on the Stock Exchange. Oh absolutely has to decrease their value. So I don't know I don't know enough about financing but it might sour the deal right or at least postpone it for a while or something like that anyway. Tony Rodeo said that you can go to Caesar's dot com slash updates for more information. They'll be updating that page but it was nice that he came out at least said something. Even though some of it's still up in the air in vague. That's one nice thing about a big corporation like Caesar's versus going to be a Haas here in San Diego. We have no idea no check their website. It just says closed. I and their social media. They're still some southern California casinos where I go to their twitter account and there's no mention of them being closed. We know they're all closed now right now. It's funny how they don't in this day and age you think they'd have to. People hired that active and are like on it all the time you know making updates early promotions and stuff and wouldn't it be good business to do that now? You'd think so. Well one of the things that I think a lot of people are doing while they are sheltering in place is watching a lot of TV and movies and one of the things that Jerry. And I did the other night was to watch uncut gems the movie with Adam Sandler now. I told you I was going to watch it. Did you watch it also. No I didn't watch okay. All right well. I'm going to talk about it a little bit. I was hoping we both talked about it. And that's why I said. Hey we're gonNA watch spent two days ago. I spent the whole day watching Season Three Jessica Jones. Oh all right. I saw the thirteen episodes is thirteen hours of Jessica. Jones was good all right good for you. Well Anyway. You've probably heard of this movie. It's stars Adam Sandler as a jeweler who gets mixed up in sports gambling in a really bad way and I'll say this the movie. It's actually a very good movie but it is a stress inducer pretty much. Every scene is written to make you feel uncomfortable. It's like oh my gosh. How's he going to get out of this? And it just goes on and on in fact Sherry was even saying she didn't really enjoy watching it because it was just so stressful right but those movie. Yeah but it's still a very good movie. He's excellent and you know. Kevin Garnett plays himself in the movie. And he's really good. Oh yeah he's really good uncut gems. I'll have to watch but again. It is stressful. If you know a lot about sports betting there a couple of things that happen. It's like that's not exactly right but I don't WANNA spoil because they're not that big a deal and honestly if you don't know a lot about sports betting you probably wouldn't even notice it and I don't think it really affects the story but still boggles my mind when they screw stuff up like this. This isn't as bad as you usually see at a poker table. Or a craps table or something like that and I'll talk to you about it after the show but anyway moves the plot along so okay. I'm sure on the set when they're filming that there is somebody who who's a sports better well. Who who would say well. We should probably change. There's enough details that they obviously had somebody onset who did know yes but I don't know if just artistic license or whatever you know to move along the plot. Maybe they lost might not be worse. Right changing things Since I mentioned Jessica Jones Season Three. Yes I don't want to spoil it for people who want to watch. This is their last season. It's our last night. I think it was a really good one but she does team up kind of team up with another person who has super powers. I won't tell you his powers but he's got a sports betting and poker playing problem interesting nats what causes him to do the stuff he does because he gets financial hardships because of his his addiction. To All Right Poker Jessica Jones part of the Marvel TV universe on Netflix. Okay all right I mean. They don't show him playing anything but they keep talking about it. That's his motive for the bad things. Good thanks to but the bad things are motivated by sports betting just like real life. Yeah like rely on our last episode listener. Nick called in and one of the things he said was that he played a game called. Duce's while a table game not video. Poker deuces wild. I believe it was at the D. I can't remember for sure said the D. and we said we'd talk about on a future up. So why don't we talk about it right now? You ready ready to learn. It's actually this is pretty straightforward. I think you'll have been known for about twelve day. I think you're going to be fine. I think you're going to the Games actually been around for a while at least nine years. I'm trying to remember if we've heard of it before. I don't think so I I certainly have never seen it. I know I don't think so either. So anyway it's again gain. You're not playing against the dealer nor the other players at the table. And if you play your hand to completion you'll end up with a five card poker hand where deuces are wild. Okay just a regular fifty two card deck video. Yeah you'll get five cards. There's no draw you'll just end up with five cards and deuces wild okay. So to play the game players make an ante wager and then the players receive three down cards. At this point the player can fold if their hand is really bad or make a play wager. Equal to the amount of the ante wager says either fold. And you're out you lose your Anne typical for most of those games or you can continue by making a play wager. Then the players receive one more card. At this point the player can fold or make a raise wager. Equal to twice the amount of the ante wager. Okay so if you started with five dollars on the ante wager and you've made it this far because you didn't fold you'll have twenty dollars at risk right the five dollar ante wager the five dollar play wager and the ten dollar raise wager okay and then players receive one final card players win if they have a pair of aces or better again with Deuces wild and depending on how good your hand is you'll get paid at odds now if you have exactly a pair of aces nothing higher. Just a pair of aces the ante wager wins even money and the play and the raise wager. Push for all other winning hands. All three bets get paid at odds. So that's the only case. Where only the ante wager would get paid off just as just a pair of aces anti gets paid even money playing raise push. Okay if you have two pair or three of a kind you get even money on all three bets and again all these wagers all bets are paid so to pair and three of.
