Ladies' Night

Robert Dawson

In this story from the Journal of Humanistic Mathematics (Volume 7, Issue 1, January 2017), a card sharp known as "Lady Jane" attempts to swindle a statistician visiting Las Vegas for a conference. The plot twists and turns as the statistician finally turns the tables on Lady Jane because of her knowledge of the Monty Hall Problem and Bayes' Theorem.
