Betahundert Bashby likes to play the gaming tables for relaxation. He does
not expect to win, and he doesn’t, so he picks games in which losses are
a given small fraction of the money bet. He plays steadily without a break,
and the sizes of his bets are proportional to the money he has. If at
“galloping dominoes” it takes him 4 hours to lose half of his money and
it takes him 2 hours to lose half of his money at “chuk-a-luck,” how long
can he play both games simultaneously if he starts with $1000 and quits
when he has $10 left, which is just enough for a quick nip and carfare home?
