Who’s That Playing My tokyoslot88 Chips?

I am asked quite often, in a nice way, something like, “I really like your columns Vince, but why don’t you ever talk about poker strategy?” I usually explain that since there are columnists who write strategy, plus so many good books available nowadays, I just basically don’t think I have that much to add. Occasionally, however, I have tried to pass on some piece of advice, usually in a general way, with hopes of helping some of the newer players.

Today the advice that I want to pass on is to never play poker when you are angry. Now that sounds like a simple statement, but it’s really just the tip of the iceberg. Yes, we know when we’re really angry. Maybe we got in an argument with our spouse or maybe a friend. He or she said some mean things. We said some mean things. It wasn’t a pretty sight, and now here we are, mad. This, as I said, is a case where there is no doubt in our mind that we are mad.

Fortunately most of us have our different ways of getting through this, whatever the method. Usually within a short period of time, our anger is gone and things get back to normal. I personally learned the “don’t play poker when you’re angry” lesson during my first marriage. I learned not to go play poker after having heated words with my wife. I invariably got even for any perceived wrong in the old fashioned way, by losing all our money.

As the years passed and I found myself in other relationships, I became much more cognizant of my moods as they applied to my poker playing. I found it easy to play when I was happy and in a good mood. I could even play well when I was saddened by something. When things were normal, like a “straight line” type of mood, which I experience most of the time, my playing was also good. When occasionally I have been angry, it’s a no brainer: I know enough not to play. If you are …

Bettin’ Benny vs. Slow-Playin’ Seto Sbobet

Last time, in Part I, I told you a little bit about Slow-Playin’ Seto. Slow-Playin’ Seto played in the first house game I ever played in. Wait, he didn’t exactly “play.” He sat there most of the night waiting for the nuts! Yet, night after night, Seto chalked up winning sessions. I learned how important discipline and patience are by watching Seto rake in the bucks, and I knew I had to do the same thing. Although it wasn’t easy at first, I was finally able to deal with the boredom of folding. It was from watching Seto that I actually became a winning player in the game. And just when I’d figured out everything there was to know about poker, in walked Bettin’ Benny … oh, boy.

Benny was very loud and intimidating. He was an Italian with lots of hair and a big voice. He also had a goatee, which made him look even more intimidating. His hands and neck were covered in lavish watches, rings, and necklaces. He’d played poker before for higher stakes than we were playing, for sure. We played with a $1 ante, $1-$5 anytime with anything up, and $10 on the end. It was a game in which nobody could get hurt too badly; losing $200 was a pretty bad night. That was soon to change.

Benny jumped right in and started betting and raising, appearing to throw caution to the wind. None of us had ever seen anything like it before. We were used to a game with a more normal pace. All of a sudden, the pots were twice the size as normal, and Benny appeared to be invincible. He didn’t often start with much of a hand, but by the end of the hand, he’d hit some miracle card and taken down another monster Sbobet pot. He had all of us shaking our heads. Not only that, he convinced us all to make it $20 on the end – and $20 was a big bet to us, but not to Benny. Benny knew that, and he started betting the maximum …

ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล Review of Get the Edge at Blackjack

Advantage blackjack has come a long way since the days of Thorpe. With casinos using facial recognition systems, computers that count cards along with the player, and other high-tech mechanisms, if players aren’t continually improving their skills they soon wouldn’t be able to find a game anywhere. What new methods are there that a player can use to get an advantage over the casinos? Several answers to this question can be found in Get the Edge at Blackjack.

In his new book, John May discusses many techniques which can be used to get an edge against the house at blackjack. The first chapter covers basic strategy and card counting, summarizing some of the most significant literature on the topic. May also compares several of the most popular card counting systems, largely summarizing the work of the late Peter Griffin in his seminal book, Theory of Blackjack.

Next, May moves on to cover some other ways one can gain an advantage, including card sequencing, dealer hole card play, and exploiting dealer errors. Here May also covers the new automatic shuffling machines and explains Kelly betting, although several chapters after it was first introduced, which might be confusing. The author also covers some miscellaneous topics, including spooking, playing blackjack on Internet casinos, and a play May calls “The Stacker”.

These are all interesting advantage plays, but May’s description is very superficial. The book ends up being like a survey course, where the reader is informed about the existence of each of these techniques, but none of them are covered in sufficient depth to truly benefit the reader. For example, I know about front loading, that is, looking for a ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล dealer who will flash their hole card to the players, but I don’t know how to look for this without appearing suspicious, I’m told something called a “T-scope” will help train me for this, but I don’t know where to get one or how to build one, not to mention how I should bet without giving away what I’m doing to the casino. At least the latter question is answered in …

The Fastest Dog Wins Most UFABET Races

In greyhound racing there are approximately 17 handicappingfactors that can be measured and compared; some more, or less, pertinent for various grades, at various tracks, on various course lengths. Generally, one will find that no more than 3 to 5 of these 17 factors will need to be rated. Which 3 to 5 is the question constantly being studied by the “pros”.

The one factor that tends to be most meaningful is SPEED (known as Time, A.R.T., (Average Race Time), Speed Rating, Adjusted Time, etc.)

Some handicappers contend that Speed is not a very viable handicapping factor. I don’t agree at all, but sometimes it is a difficult factor to measure. While there is no one right way to go about this, it is important to track your success. Without knowing how you’re doing, you won’t have a chance of improving your score.

The art of sound Speed handicapping deserves your full effort. Yet, if 10 expert handicappers were to agree that a certain dog in a race was provably “faster” than the others, that dog is not guaranteed to win. Eight dogs racing hell-bent around a circular dirt track will often refute sheer logic. There is no doubt, however, that the fastest dog has a better chance than the second fastest. Over a span of time, speed counts! When you find better ways to compute speed factors you will increase your profits at the track — no doubt about it!

There are various ways to approach calculating Speed differences. You may find that a slightly different approach works best for different grades and course lengths. The key is to experiment, record, and monitor your results, until you have the best possible system worked out. Here are some generalities that I use.

For most grades I average the most recent three clear UFABET races shown in the PPLs (Past Performance Lines). For the top grade (or both AA and A, for those tracks which run AA) I average the three best (fastest) times shown from among all of the PPLs shown.

Do not use those times from any race run …

The Spanish get going Poker Pkv again

 

 

Spanish football had a summer nightmare as La Roja meekly surrendered their world crown in Brazil, crashing out in the first round with only a dead rubber win over Australia to point to. But lest we forget, La Liga clubs made a clean sweep of UEFA trophies last season, as Real Madrid won the Champions League & Super Cup and Sevilla the Europa League.

 

While the national team finally returned to winning ways with a 5-1 victory over Macedonia in their first Euro 2016 qualifier, the Primera has also resumed proceedings with the annual Barça-Real ding-dong back into full swing.

 

Barcelona have resumed normal service, topping the Primera after six outings with five wins and a draw. Real Madrid have started more slowly, surprisingly losing their opening two games of the season, away at Real Sociedad and at home to Atletico Madrid.

 

Their city rivals are of course the reigning champions and Champions League runners-up, and it is very much to be hoped they can maintain that success to make the race for the Spanish title at least a little more interesting than a tussle between the usual two suspects.

 

Valencia is the most likely candidate to make it a four-horse poker pkv  race and the club coached by Portuguese Nuno Espirito Santo have made an encouraging start and find themselves second to Barça so far, just ahead of Atletico and Europa League winners Sevilla.

 

The rest of the Spanish top flight once more looks depressingly weedy however, with the likes of Almeria, Eibar and Getafe unlikely to set many pulses racing.

 

Barça v Real may be an overblown, vulgar carnival at least twice a season, but the pulling power of the star-heavy lineups remains undeniable.

 

Their first clash, at the Bernabeu on the 25th of October, has been on people’s lips since the start of the campaign, particularly as it will feature the long-awaited debut of Luis Suarez for the blaugrana.

 

If the domestic league turns out to be as predictable as ever, then at least in Europe the …

How Big Can the World Series of Poker Become?

As if things weren’t pumped up enough in 2003 when a record 839 players entered the $10,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em championship at the World Series of Poker, this year the head count more than tripled. In case you’ve been hibernating on a deserted island with Robinson Crusoe or the cast of Survivor and haven’t heard the news, last year’s event marked the coming of the online gaming community into poker’s premier event. When a 27-year-old accountant by the name of Chris Moneymaker parlayed a $40 entry fee in an online satellite event into a $2.5 million payday when he won the 2003 World Series of Poker, it helped set the poker world on its ear.

 

When all of last year’s shouting was over and done, I found myself standing next to Horseshoe owner Becky Binion Behnen and asked her how many players she anticipated for the main event in 2004. She smiled and said, “I guess we might have as many as 1,000.” I thought she erred on the side of caution, and in a column right here in Card Player, entitled “That’s My Number and I’m Sticking to It,” I predicted 1,150 entrants. I thought I was conservative, too, but I might have been swayed somewhat by Becky’s estimate. After all, she owned the joint — or did.

 

For a while, it seemed like there might not even be a 2004 World Series of Poker. In early January 2004, U.S. marshals entered Binion’s Horseshoe and seized $1.9 million to satisfy debts owed to the Southern Nevada Culinary and Bartenders Pension Trust Fund and the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees International Union Welfare Fund, and forced the closure of the 52-year-old property’s casino.

 

Seizing the Horseshoe sparked all sorts of rumors, and for weeks no one could tell you what the casino’s fate would be. And if the casino’s fate was up in the air, so was the fate of its biggest asset: the World Series of Poker. But the Horseshoe reopened on April 1, only three and a half months after its closure by U.S. marshals, …

Barça Judi Online blitz on the eve of Guardiola’s return

 

 

Barcelona have the finish line in sight, the end of the TV duopoly, prodigal Pep returns and Bilbao honour Matt Le Tissier

 

Barcelona scored 14 goals in two games this week to inch closer to the La Liga title.

 

With three games to play, the blaugrana maintain their two-point advantage over Real Madrid and are not only refusing to slip up but winning with wild abandon.

 

First they blitzed poor Getafe 6-0 at the Camp Nou on Tuesday before trouncing Cordoba 8-0 away on Saturday, condemning the Andalucians to the drop in the process.

 

Luis Enrique’s side now have to play Real Sociedad and Deportivo La Coruna at home and in between Atletico Madrid away to confirm their championship.

 

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have Valencia and Getafe at home and Espanyol away, meaning Real will probably depend on their city rivals Atletico to do them a Judi Online favour and take points off Barça at the Manzanares.

 

A draw will probably not be enough for Real however, as Barcelona’s scoring fest this week has taken their goal difference to +86 compared to Real’s +73.

 

So assuming the freefalling Deportivo succumb inside the Camp Nou, and Atletico can only draw with Barça, Real’s hopes lie with David Moyes’ Real Sociedad, who beat the blaugrana at home earlier this season, taking points from them away from home as well.

 

But right now it looks like the title is headed to Catalonia. Real’s ‘March madness’, when they lost to Athletic Bilbao and Barcelona and drew with Villareal, as well as losing in Europe to Schalke, has cost them dearly.

 

The Getafe mauling was another embarrassing Primera mismatch as the league-leaders entered the changing-rooms at half-time five goals up. They took their foot off the accelerator in the second half and only added one more, but it was another veritable goleada as they say here.

 

Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez grabbed braces, with Neymar and Xavi adding single strikes. The Argentine opened the goal-fest in the ninth minute with a Panenka penalty after …

Scots’ broth a bit rich for Qq Online England

 

 

They came, they saw, they conquered Manchester.

 

But the first Scottish invasion of England since Bonnie Prince Charlie’s in 1745 ended in tears once again.

 

Rangers were deservedly beaten 2-0 in the Qq Online UEFA Cup Final by the sleek Russians of Zenit St Petersburg, coached by former ‘Gers manager Dick Advocaat.

 

Zenit took 72 minutes to unlock the stubborn Rangers defence, but it was no more than they deserved for their skilful play, which had demolished Bayern Munich 5-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

 

The Glaswegians should console themselves with reaching the final in the first place, after dispatching superior opposition such as Sporting Lisbon and Fiorentina on the way thanks to Walter Smith’s shrewd tactics.

 

Once more, the UEFA Cup looked decidedly second best to the Champions League however. Since the second, third and even fourth-best teams in each country have won passsge to the CL, the UEFA Cup has lost a lot of its shine. Its interminable group stages are redolent of the misguided experiment taken by the Champions League in the early 1990s.

 

What made this final go down in history was instead the violence outside the stadium pre and post-match.

 

It is hard to recall the last time a British city-centre witnessed such distressing scenes of football-related trouble, such have been the leaps in improving the game’s image since the dark days of the 1980s. Perhaps the riot in Trafalgar Square in London after England were knocked out of Euro ’96 was the last.

 

There might have been over 100,000 well-behaved Rangers supporters in Manchester, but their club’s whole reputation was sullied by the few hundred who decided to get violent after a big screen failed to work. To cite that as an excuse for lobbing missiles, smashing cars, looting shops and attacking policemen was ludicrous but several fans unbelievably tried to justify the prolonged violence.

 

The dynamite was certainly sitting there primed given the numbers of fans, warm weather and the fact that Glaswegians are tough by nature, are fond of the odd …
