comment Must I check the kashrut certificate every time I visit a bakery or restaurant?
As far as I am aware, the kashrut companies always own the certificate, and are licensing it to be posted in an establishment they approve of, with the condition that it must be removed if the kashrut company says so.

comment Which tefilot you say when your minhag differs from that of the shoul your praying in?
I know there is a difference between sefardic nusach and nusach sefarad--I was just using sefarad as an example.

Theoretically I suppose they can, but legally they cannot.

comment Gambling at casino
In halacha in general the law does not change based on the person's mental state. So if the opinion and reasoning I gave above were correct, I would say that it would still be an issue. However, there is reason to believe from the passage in the gemara that although this was one opinion, it is likely not the true reasoning, partly because of the issue you raised; namely it is a bit strange to have an argument on whether gambling is an asmachta or not (and there is such an argument; we follow the opinion of the one who said it is) if that is basically an argument on the mindset of the gambler.
