This Week we have:

Europe saw its first playing cards around 1360. They came from Egypt and likely arrived through Venice which was a major trading port at the time. Playing cards were also found prior to this in China, India, and Persia, but this deck from the Islamic Mamluk Empire of Egypt consisted of four suits with 13 different ranks so they bore a strong similarity to the type of playing cards used today.

Cards were incredibly popular in 14th century Europe. There were countless styles and various designs, suit-systems, and formats. By the end of the century a common style was developed which was called the European suit system which allowed a wide array of games to be created which included a few different kinds of poker.

One of the earliest pieces of writing on poker came in the book “An Exposure of the Arts and Miseries of Gambling” by Jonathan H. Green in 1834. Green wrote about how the game was spreading and the large role the river boats on the Mississippi played in introducing the game to new people. He called it the “Cheating Game” and when he found out the game wasn’t featured in American Hoyle he named the game “poker”.

– The brainchild behind the World Series of Poker was poker legend and casino owner Benny Binion. Along with his sons Jack and Ted, Benny Binion began working on the idea of a World Series for poker in the 1960s and held the first tournament at the Binion Horseshoe casino. The games included five card stud, razz, seven card stud, deuce to seven low-ball draw, and Texas Hold’em. Players like Johnny Moss and Nick the Greek along with Gabe Caplin.

– Top rooms…Binions, Aria, Bellagio, Mirage

-Problems with live poker in Vegas

-What is it really like to sit down at a modern Vegas poker table

-What happened to the poker surge a few years ago

-Online Poker a poor substitute.

-Should you play in Vegas as a newbie?

-Rounders

 

 

 

 

Gear Grinders – Las Vegas

– When will the Racism band wagon hit Vegas and which statues/monuments are in danger?

        -Jefferson Davis Peak – Great Basin National Park

        -Magruder Mountain – J. Bankhead Magruder

        -UNLV Rebel logo changed in advance of problems

        –Nevada became a state in the midst of the Civil War, which is where the “Battle Born” motto on the flag comes from. The process to grant Nevada statehood was expedited by Union sympathizers who wanted more support for Abraham Lincoln during the 1864 election.

 

Area 52 (Jamey)

Street Marker For First Telephone Installed

A brass plaque commemorating the first telephone installed in Las Vegas in 1907 can be seen on the southwest corner of Fremont and Main streets. The plaque was attached to the exterior of the Golden Gate Hotel and Casino in 1980. The Golden Grate was open in 1906 and a 1907 Kellogg brand telephone, a cousin of the hand-cranked original, has been placed in its lobby. The phone was located at 1 Fremont Street and the phone number was 1.

–  The pioneers of the Las Vegas casino industry weren’t all male mobsters: the first legal casino license was issued to a woman named Mayme Stocker in 1920 for the Northern Club. Stocker was a respectable wife and mother who was frequently written about in the local newspaper society pages. She opened the casino under her name (her husband Harold didn’t want to be associated with it at first) and offered the only five games legal in Vegas at the time: stud poker, draw poker, lowball poker, 500, and bridge.
