WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas! This week on Sports Radio 1420 we’ll be chatting with a guy who was figuring out blackjack probabilities and odds on a business calculator (because computers were not available) when he was 12 - then he progressed to every game in the casino.

WHAT’S THE best birthday present one could get while in Vegas? How about hitting the Quarter Millions for $265,551.02! Das what happened to Virginia Crisologo from Waipahu.

WHAT’S THE No. 1 Buffet in Vegas? The Buffet at the Bellagio got the nod from the thousands of Vegas4Visitors readers. The Aladdin Spice Market was next, and Paris Le Village and the Rio Carnival World Buffet were tied for third. I’m actually happy that my humble tastebuds can’t discern the difference between them (they’re all good) ... just wish they had fried saimin like downtown. These guys also voted the MGM Grand the best casino with Caesars and the Bellagio at second and third. While our palates may agree, my wallet thinks there are better places to leave a deposit.

While most are legit (however, they are all illegal in the United States) some shrewd computer programmers have written programs or “bots” that play for you using an optimized strategy (you know what they say, if you can’t spot the sucker on the computer after five minutes ... it’s you).

SPEAKING OF cheating at poker, Penn (of Penn & Teller) has a new book out called How to Cheat Your Friends at Poker. It’s available at Amazon now, or you can get it at your favorite brick and mortar store on Oct. 18. Whatdya expect from a guy whose house is designed to resemble a prison?
