Daniel keluar sgp Wins First Ever Fairways and Felts Tournament

All poker enthusiasts will know that the European keluar sgp Poker Tour stopped in Vilamoura last week, given the players a chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery and play some cards in Portugal’s largest ever poker tournament. A much less well-known event was also taking place in conjunction with the official stop, namely PokerStars Fairways and Felts, the first ever mixed golf/poker tournament. Daniel Negreanu proved that he knew his way around the golf course almost as well as he does around a poker table, taking down the whole event.
Fairways and Felts is the first event of its kind, and if you’re anything like me then when you first heard about it you probably thought it sounded even more ridiculous than Chess boxing and had no idea how it could work. As it turns out, it’s pretty simple and actually quite a neat idea.

The contestants are randomly split off into teams and make their way around the golf course, each member of the team having a go at each shot then the team decides whose ball they’d like to play from. At the commencement of the poker, bonus chips are then added to the stacks of the teams’ members that perform the best in the golf, with bonus chips also being awarded to individuals who achieve feats such as the longest drive. In this way, your performance in the golf directly gives you an advantage – or disadvantage – in the poker.

Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu is heralded as one of the best players in the world today. He has four World Series of Poker bracelets, was ESPN, WPT and CardPlayer Player of the Year in 2004 and has made numerous television appearances on popular poker shows. In fact, for most of you reading this Negreanu may well be most famous for his presence – and appalling luck – on High Stakes Poker, where he is frequently heard discussing golf with other pros at the table.

The Fairways and Felts event boasted an €1,100 buy-in, split between tournament and green fees and the contribution to the prizepool itself. Somewhat disappointingly only fourteen people turned up on the day to compete, but the event was never really about winning big money as much as it was a nice relaxing couple of days in a beautiful spot in the world and, of course, the bragging rights.

Despite the relatively small turn-out, there were obviously some big poker names but also some very proficient golfers, not least of all Scandinavian players Tom Larsen and Eddie Tasbas boasting very impressive 0.5 and 0 handicaps, respectively. While Daniel Negreanu’s team didn’t end up winning the golf event, they did well enough to earn him 2,500 additional starting chips as the poker kicked off, and from there it was hard to slow the poker great down, who took down the tournament earning himself a modest €8,000.

While the turnout could have been larger, there’s no doubt that it was a great day had by …

togel hongkong hari ini Hand Signals

Some of you play your blackjack online and never intend to take your skills to a casino, but I recommend that everyone, at least once in your life, visit a casino and play the game there. No matter how great the online casino is idman Azərbaycan, no website can recreate the experience of playing blackjack inside a brick and mortar casino. If you do visit a land-based casino, though, there are some things you need to know. One of the most important things that is present in brick and mortar casinos but not online is the use of hand signals.

When playing blackjack in casinos, hand signals are required to protect the integrity of the game. The “eye in the sky” (those cameras above the casino floor that watch everything) capture your every move on the floor, including at the blackjack table.

By observing hand signals, security can tell every decision that you made when playing blackjack. This is important for several reasons. First of all, a dispute may arise between you and the dealer about whether you said to hit or stand. If there were no hand signals, in theory a player could ask to hit, bust, and then complain that he told the dealer to stand. Without video evidence of the hand signal, it’s the player’s word against the dealer. The hand signal protects against a dishonest or mistaken player as well as a dishonest or mistaken dealer. If you give the hand signal to stand and the dealer mistakenly gives you a card, causing you to bust, you can appeal and the eye in the sky can save you. In addition, the eye in the sky can also be used to catch card counters and players and dealers engaging in collusion.

Here are the hand signals you need to know when playing togel hongkong hari ini in a casino:

If you want to hit, there are two possible hand signals. If you are holding your cards, you scrape the cards against the table. If the cards are sitting face-up on the table, you should either touch a finger to the table or wave your hand toward yourself.

To stand, slide the cards under your bet if you are holding the cards. If the cards are sitting face-up on the table, indicate that you want to stand by waving your hand horizontally.

If you want to double down on your bet, place additional chips (equal to your original bet) next to your original bet but still within the betting box. Do not put the chips on top of the original bet.

If you want to split a pair, place additional chips next to the original bet but outside the betting box.

There is no signal for a surrender, so if the casino allows surrender and you want to do it, simply verbalize it. Likewise there is no signal for accepting insurance. These are the only decisions you can make that do not have an accompanied hand signal.…

Review of How to Beat the Dog Races

With a house take often in excess of 20%, beating the track is a daunting task, even for a skilled race handicapper. A lot of factors can affect a given race, and the techniques used for handicapping one race on one track at one point in time may not work at all somewhere else or even at the same track at a later time. Adapting to these variables is difficult, and even if one has some success, a great deal of data must be amassed before a true trend can be established. In How to Beat the Dog Races, long time track veteran Bill McBride tries to suggest some methods by which the reader can learn to win by betting on the dog races.

McBride generally assumes that the reader has at least a passing familiarity with the dog races. The book does not start with a basic introductory chapter. Racing/Betting terms, such as “Exacta” and “Schooling Race” are defined in a fine glossary at the end of the book, but they are not always defined when they are first used in the text. Therefore, someone who is new to dog racing may want to spend some time around the track or find some way to become familiar with the terminology before starting in on this book. Or, failing that, a novice may want to read the book’s glossary thoroughly before staring in on the main text.

The author spends several chapters talking about handicapping. While I am by no means a dog racing expert, it sounds to me like his general tone is pretty good. He categorically states that there’s no single magic way to gain a betting advantage at a track, and the methods that work at one track are by no means assured of making money at another. McBride advocates doing a lot of research before placing a wager, a philosophy I wholeheartedly agree with. He explains the data that one is likely to find in a racing program, and which data have, in his experience, tended to be good indicators of race performance and which haven’t. I believe his approach to generalized handicapping is probably pretty good.

Once a race has been handicapped, the projections need to be translated into mathematics and compared to the posted race odds. The author talks about bets that have a positive ROI (return on investment) and suggests researching a history of races where one would have had a positive ROI using a given set of variables. The reader is then instructed to bet similar races going forward. I’m not sure that’s enough, especially since the number of races that are likely to be meaningful are probably statistically small. I also don’t think that in the long term one can get a 30% edge over the track, as several of McBride’s ROI calculations would demonstrate. This is not to say that these aren’t profitable bets, it’s just that given a small sample size, we would expect that some winning bets to …

Dasar-dasar Perjudian Keluaran Hk

Perjudian adalah semua tentang matematika. Hukum probabilitas mendasari segala sesuatu yang terjadi. Kecuali Anda membawa permainan Anda ke tingkat ahli, seperti penghitungan kartu di blackjack, kemungkinannya hampir selalu melawan Anda. Pemain kasual akan memenangkan beberapa dan kehilangan beberapa tetapi semakin banyak jam yang dihabiskan untuk bermain, semakin besar kemungkinan kerugian total bersih.

Meskipun peluangnya hampir selalu bekerja melawan pemain, kabar baiknya adalah bahwa dengan bermain cerdas, pemain dapat mengurangi keunggulan rumah ke level yang sangat minimal. Misalnya pemain blackjack dek tunggal Las Vegas dapat berharap untuk kehilangan hanya 90 sen per jam bertaruh $5 per tangan (berdasarkan aturan dek tunggal dan 100 tangan per jam). Pemain dadu Tunica dapat membuat taruhan hingga $100 pada odds setelah taruhan garis lulus $5 dengan kerugian yang diharapkan hanya 7 sen per taruhan diselesaikan. Selanjutnya pemain bisa mendapatkan kamar, makanan, minuman, dan hiburan yang jauh melebihi kerugian yang diharapkannya. Setelah mempertimbangkan nilai perusahaan kasino, pemain dapat dengan mudah keluar di depan. Bagaimana kasino mampu melakukan ini? Mudah, karena sebagian besar pemain bermain bodoh dan meninggalkan banyak uang. Jika Anda bersedia meluangkan waktu untuk mempelajari cara memainkan strategi yang tepat, Anda akan membiarkan pemain jahat mensubsidi perusahaan gratis Anda dan perjudian hampir gratis.

Matematika Perjudian

Sebagian besar permainan kasino sangat cocok untuk analisis matematis. Hanya permainan dengan faktor manusia seperti poker dan taruhan olahraga yang menimbulkan masalah. Setiap permainan yang merupakan pemain melawan dealer Togel SGP dapat dianalisis dengan sempurna dipecah menjadi peluang. Dalam permainan ini hanya ada satu jawaban yang benar untuk pertanyaan strategis. Tidak ada area abu-abu atau masalah opini. Ya, terkadang dua sumber mungkin tidak setuju pada sebuah permainan atau nomor. Ini kadang-kadang karena kesalahan yang jujur, dan saya tidak mengklaim bahwa saya sempurna di bidang ini. Namun terkadang ketidaktahuan matematika sederhana menyebabkan ketidaksepakatan.

Terlepas dari upaya keras saya untuk menyajikan kepada Anda strategi terbaik untuk setiap permainan, saya mendorong Anda untuk mengerjakan matematika sebanyak yang Anda bisa sendiri. Menerima saran saya adalah satu hal, tetapi Anda akan merasa jauh lebih nyaman dan percaya diri jika Anda dapat mengatasi sendiri peluangnya. Buku pengantar apa pun tentang probabilitas harus menyediakan alat dasar untuk memahami peluang di balik permainan. Analisis permainan kasino dapat berkisar dari permainan yang sangat mudah seperti roulette dan dadu hingga yang sangat sulit seperti blackjack dan pai gow poker. Untuk informasi lebih lanjut tentang bagaimana peluang dihitung, saya mendorong Anda untuk mengunjungi lampiran di situs web saya di www.thewizardofodds.com. Di masa depan saya dapat menulis buku lain yang berfokus pada probabilitas dasar dan penerapannya pada perjudian kasino.

Keluaran Hk Money management

Apa yang saya katakan tentang pengelolaan uang dapat diringkas dalam satu kata, moderasi. Jangan bertaruh apa pun yang akan menempatkan Anda dalam situasi yang tidak nyaman untuk kalah. Berjudi hanya dengan uang yang biasanya Anda curahkan untuk hiburan. Jangan bermain lelah atau mabuk. Lakukan aktivitas lain selain berjudi.

Microgaming Launches Challenge Togel Hongkong Casino

Microgaming is pleased to announce the launch of their newest casino, Challenge Casino.

Challenge Casino is no newcomer to the industry, having previously used software supplied by Boss Media, a public company listed on the Swedish stock exchange.

This exciting new casino will feature 35 games in its launch phase, including the popular Microgaming progressive jackpot games.

The casino will be available in download or Flash versions, giving players a choice of format.

Guido Albi Marini of Challenge Casino commented, “Over the last couple of years, we have gaining a lot of experience in the gaming industry. It became clear to us that we needed to move both our game offering and back office management tools to the next level.

“After reviewing our alternatives, Microgaming’s online gaming systems emerged as the clear ‘first choice’ in the industry.”

Police Investigate Kahnawake Casinos

Quebec provincial police are currently investigating the online casinos on the Kahnawake First Nations reserve to see if they fall within the boundaries of the law.

The goal of the investigation is to determine whether the casinos being operated on the reserve, which is located just outside Montreal, are illegal and should be shut down or if the province needs to rewrite existing gambling statutes to address the issue.

Current legislation does not explicitly prohibit with online wagering, but provincial authorities maintain that any gaming facility that is not officially licensed is illegal.

“The only one who has the right to operate a casino in Quebec is the government,” said Francois Moisan, spokesman for Quebec’s alcohol, racing and Togel Hongkong gaming board. “Others, such as religious groups and charities, can get licenses but our mandate is to control the licensing.”

As previously reported on WINNERonline, Mohawks on the Kahnawake reserve disagree with the government’s position, citing territorial sovereignty and legal uncertainty over online gambling.

That position may not keep the province at bay indefinitely, however. Montreal-based law professor Sunny Handa noted that the police have acted within their authority when they shut down other questionable casinos.

“They use pretty broad language in the Criminal Code that would catch lots of different people doing [running casinos].”

Ultimately, any decision on the Kahnawake casino servers will be political in nature. Governmental relations with native groups have been anything but exemplary in recent years, and as a result, the Quebec government will tread cautiously until it has a strong legal opinion in its favor.

Police launched their investigation late last year after a request from the Public Security minister.

Major VC-Backed South Korean Exchange Launches Ripple Support for Crypto Gambling

Korbit, one of the three leading South Korean bitcoin exchanges alongside Bithumb and Coinone, has officially integrated support for Ripple trading.

In an email to its customers and traders, the Korbit team wrote:

“KORBIT IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE FULLER SUPPORT FOR TRADING RIPPLE (XRP). RIPPLE IS ONE OF THE LEADING CRYPTOCURRENCIES AND RECENTLY EXPERIENCED A SURGE IN PRICE. YOU CAN NOW BUY AND SELL RIPPLE ON KORBIT BY PLACING LIMIT OR MARKET ORDERS.”

Over the past three years, Korbit secured $3.6 million in investment from South Korea’s most prominent investment firms and conglomerates including the $17 billion telecommunications giant SK Telecom, the South Korean arm of the Japanese investment company Softbank, and billionaire angel investor Tim Draper.

Although Korbit currently falls behind Coinhumb in terms of user base and market capitalization, it has a significant influence over the South Korean bitcoin industry and exchange market due to its strong line up of investors and supporters. Thus, the validation of Ripple by the Korbit team is likely to trigger a rise in demand toward Ripple in the South Korean exchange market, which already is the second and third largest market in the global Ethereum and Bitcoin exchange markets.

On May 11, Koji Higashi, the project leader of ORB and co-founder of IndieSquare, released an analytical blog post entitled “New wave of Japanese investors are fueling the great altcoin bubble.” In it, Higashi explicitly described the explosive growth of Ripple in the Japanese exchange market and his concerns over the decision of casual and beginner traders to invest in altcoins such as Ripple and NEM without obtaining actual knowledge in the purpose, structure and philosophy of the abovementioned altcoins.

Higashi emphasized that the vast majority of traders are relying on exchanges’ chatrooms to receive investment advice, which he describe as unreliable. Higashi’s description of Japanese and South Korean investment and exchange chatrooms is rather accurate, as last year, many traders advised bitcoin users to sell the digital currency because Apple was developing its own cryptocurrency with advanced technology.

Quite evidently, anyone with the slightest understanding of cryptography and the structure of cryptocurrencies would understand that there exists many components such as hash power that are necessary for a cryptocurrency to evolve, which cannot be replicated overnight by companies like Apple, regardless of the resources they may have.

“Another thing to note about this new trend is that the general lack of understanding or appreciation of the technology by many of new users. This is no surprise and all of us have been there at one point but the new wave of Japanese investors seem to be exhibiting a whole new level of incomprehension and misguided decision making in my opinion. Many of them don’t bother researching what those coins do nor what they are useful for but rather follow whatever they hear in exchanges’ chatrooms,” said Higashi.

Expounding upon Higashi’s concern, Korbit’s justification behind their decision to add Ripple trading and support is also quite questionable for Crypto Gambling, as they …

Mohegan Sun takes a gamble on best online casino singapore

 

 

 

  • The Connecticut casino opens the first phase of a $1-billion addition today despite the weakening economy.

BY ANDREA L. STAPE

 

The Mohegan tribe opens today the first phase of a $1-billion addition to its Mohegan Sun casino, two weeks after terrorists attacked New York and sent an already sluggish economy spiraling toward recession.

 

Project Sunburst — complete with an indoor mountain, the largest planetarium dome in the world, a 10,000-seat arena, an 85-foot waterfall, 2,500 new slot machines, 130,000 square feet of shops and nine new restaurants — is nothing short of breathtaking.

 

But are Americans really in the mood to gamble?

 

The terrorist attacks have put a damper on consumers’ enthusiasm for the slots. Turnout on Mohegan’s existing 180,000-square-foot gambling floors has been soft over the past two weeks, according to Mitchell Etess, executive vice president of marketing for Mohegan Sun.

 

Plus, the opening occurs in the midst of a slumping economy that analysts say is moving toward recession. Economists and Wall Street analysts are predicting a short-term slowdown in entertainment revenue. Rhode Island’s tourism industry has felt the negative effects.

 

Despite the bleak picture, Mohegan Sun officials remain undaunted.

 

“We didn’t feel it was appropriate to be celebratory in nature. But we didn’t want to stop,” Etess said.

 

Although the tribe scaled back today’s celebration, canceling the indoor fireworks and toning down an advertising campaign, the ribbon will still be cut, the slots will flash and more than 21 shops will be open for business.

 

Mohegan Sun also has no plans to stop construction on the second phase of its expansion project, a 1,200-room hotel tower and 100,000-square-foot convention center, which are scheduled to open in April.

 

The casino still expects to pull in 14 million people annually and is projecting $1 billion in sales next year, according to Etess.

 

“Historically, in times of recession, gaming facilities have still been able to grow,” Etess said. “People aren’t traveling far from home and they aren’t getting into airplanes right now, but people still want to do things.”

 

Etess predicts the casino, with its larger facilities, will be able to capitalize on the 22-million people who live in New England and New York.

 

Mohegan now gets 20,000 visitors a day, and almost all of them are day-trippers, according to Etess. About 20 percent of those customers come from New York, while 7 percent drive from Rhode Island. Most of the rest come from Massachusetts and Connecticut, he said.

 

After the hotel opens in April, Mohegan is expecting to attract an additional 16,000 guests a day.

 

At least one Wall Street analyst agrees.

 

“Mohegan is more of a regional business and wouldn’t be hurt as badly as some casinos,” said Tom Graves, a gaming analyst with Standard & Poors in New York. “The gaming facilities that rely more on long distance destination travelers are going to be hurt more.”

GLOBAL ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES RECORD FOURTH QUARTER REVENUE IN EXCESS OF $2,000,000 – Global Ligaz11 Shows Two Consecutive Years Profit –

Global Entertainment today announced record revenue and net income for fourth quarter 2001 of $2,087,000 and $1,040,000. This represents more than a 44% increase in revenue and a 445% increase in net income from fourth quarter 2000, according to pre-audited financials.

GLOBAL ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES RECORD FOURTH QUARTER REVENUE

IN EXCESS OF $2,000,000     – Global Shows Two Consecutive Years Profit –

Miami, Florida, January 24, 2002 – Global Entertainment Holdings/Equities, Inc. (OTC BB: GAMM) (www.globalentertainmentinc.com) Global Entertainment today announced record revenue and net income for fourth quarter 2001 of $2,087,000 and $1,040,000. This represents more than a 44% increase in revenue and a 445% increase in net income from fourth quarter 2000, according to pre-audited financials.

Global Entertainment CEO, Bryan Abboud comments “The results are excellent as they show the strongest quarter ever for Global in terms of revenue and net income. Although Global was faced with traditional cyclicality of sportsbook-based licensing revenue as witnessed by net losses in the first three quarters in 2001, we anticipated to make-up the balance in the fourth quarter and we did. This will be our second consecutive year of profitability.” Global income is derived through its wholly owned subsidiaries Interactive Gaming & Wagering, NV (IGW), a software provider for online casino and sportsbook companies, and Prevail Online, Inc. (Prevail), a web publishing company focused on online gaming portals.

2001 year-end revenue was $4,734,338 as compared to $4,577,423 for 2000. Global will show a marginal profit of $173,168 as compared to a profit of $217,662 for 2000 – despite expecting a net loss for the year due to investments in organizational structure, product improvements and marketing. The financial accomplishments are attributable to a sound corporate Ligaz11 strategy created and executed over the past 12 months, which lays the groundwork for substantial growth in 2002.

 

In addition, because of new contractual arrangements with one of Global’s major clients, cashflow has increased significantly and Global expects to retire short-term debt of $968,564 due this year.

 

In 2002, Global’s subsidiary IGW plans to increase its focus on marketing and introduce new business models to adapt to emerging customer requirements. This is expected to have a significant impact on new revenue sources. IGW will continue with significant investment in product development both to improve the end-user’s entertainment experience and to improve the profitability of clients. Global’s other subsidiary, Prevail, re-launched its flagship website, www.wheretobet.com on December 1, 2001 and is expected to use the re-launch and its long-standing reputation in the industry to return to profitability during 2002.

 

As a result of the strategic direction of its subsidiaries, Global expects revenue growth in the range of 30% in 2002 and an increased profit and profit margin for 2002.

Never Go All In Slot Gacor

Well, not exactly. If you indeed are at the end of your money on the table, and it is appropriate with pot odds to put the rest in, go ahead. The full title should be,

“Always keep enough money on the table so that, with the maximum number of bets you would ever expect for any hand, you never have to go all in.”

This should be very obvious, but I see it violated every day at low limit tables, so here is this essay. I wait long enough between full houses that I want to always get the maximum payoff when I get one.

Calculate how much you need for the particular game you are in. An absolute minimum would be 2 bets for every betting round. That would be 6 big bets for flop games like hold’em and Omaha, and 8 BB for stud.

A better strategy is to actually have the maximum on the table, to cover “capped” betting on every round. [I will use the standard Arizona rule that 4 bets “caps” a betting round. For LA or LV players, sometimes it is 5. Adjust accordingly.] In fact, in hi/lo games like Omaha/8 and Stud hi/lo/8, the betting is often capped on later rounds, and this idea is more important. And I ask you: Why not do this?? If you have paid attention to advice on bankroll, you will have plenty of money to cover this amount. For a 3-6 Stud game, this would be 16 big bets, or $96. So that’s my advice: whenever your table stake falls below $96, re-buy immediately. This costs you nothing, since presumably you have a bankroll of 200 BB or so. Do it. For hold’em, which has one fewer “big bet” round of betting, 12 BB is the proper amount.

For newcomers, your money is as safe on the table as it is in your savings account. I have never heard a single story, ever, of anyone losing any money (to theft or loss) on the table. Go ahead and put as much of your bankroll on the table as necessary.

In Arizona, most games are played with a “kill.” If so, your minimum should be for the maximum number of bets for a kill pot. If the 3-6 stud game has a “full kill” at 6-12, then your minimum should be $192 on the table.

I see this concept violated all the time. One day I joined my friend Pat at a 3-6 hold’em table. As players will do, I asked her, “How are you doing today?” and she told me, “I’m already into this game for $300.” At that moment, she had about $20 sitting in front of her. (I know she always has plenty of bankroll with her – this was not her last $20 or even close to it.) Over the next 5-10 hands, that piddled away, and finally she went all in with about her last $6 or $9, and lost. She re-bought with …
