The Winner’s Slot Guide to Casino Poker

This book introduces basic concepts of 6 different poker variations including; 7 card stud, 7 card stud Hi/Lo, Texas Hold ’em, Omaha Hi/Lo, Crazy Pineapple Hi/Lo, and Low ball. Other chapters include topics such as strategies, bankroll considerations, private/home games and it also introduces the reader to the Casino/club atmosphere, hand rankings and provides a glossary of commonly used terms in poker.

I think this book would be good for the beginner who has never or barely been exposed to the game of poker, or to the individual who wishes to learn a new game. Personally, Texas Hold ’em is my favorite game and I have tried to study as much literature on the game as possible. I found this book to be of little service in improving my game. However, this book also sparked an interest into a game I had never heard about called Crazy Pineapple Hi/Lo. The way in which the author writes makes it easy for the reader to follow and understand the simple concepts provided in the book. He also provides different scenarios which elaborate how a player would play utilizing basic strategy.

I personally am upset with the title of this book. I do not believe this book will turn the reader into a “winning player” at the casino, but perhaps one who understands the fundamentals. The author has done a great job in providing the basics to many variations of poker. I feel that he has left out some things that should be discussed (but truly one cannot cover all the topics in 6 games in one book). However I also think Silberstang introduces the concepts of value betting, bluffing and making drawing hands pay, very well!

Overall I would give this book two dollar signs out of five …. $$ It’s easily …


Slot ligaz888 Carousels



Most casinos have groups of slot machines that are grouped by denomination called carousels. They usually have a theme that is designed to attract a certain kind of player. In Nevada, casinos advertise carousels with a higher payback, by using a slogan such as ‘Up to 97 percent payback.’ The disclaimer is the ‘up to’ phrase, which means that only a few machines in the carousel may pay back as high as 97 percent.


Carousels are sometimes linked together to calculate a progressive jackpot. These types of machines differ because the top jackpot is not a set amount, but increases as players deposit more money. For example, the top jackpot may increase five cents for every dollar played in the carousel. Every machine contributes to the jackpot, and the first machine to hit the jackpot symbols wins the award.


When the jackpot is won, the top award reverts to the minimum amount that is determined by the casino.


The Megabucks- and Quartermania-style slots are machines that are linked together between different casinos. The jackpots on these machines can reach the multi-million dollar level, much higher than individual casinos would be able to offer.


The machines are linked to a central computer by phone lines, allowing the machines to communicate with the computer that eventually determines when the winning combination will be hit.


If you want to play these progressive ligaz888 machines, you must deposit the maximum number of coins, because you are not eligible for the top jackpot unless you do. Imagine how painful it would be to hit the winning combination and only have one coin in. Instead of winning, say, $5 million, you’d only win $5,000. It’s one of the few instances where winning would hurt.

The Sbobet Indonesia Man in the Thousand Dollar Suit


I’m as mad as hell right now, so brace yourselves for a rant. I’m angry about something I witnessed at a poker table recently — and I’m about to tell you about it. My hope is that maybe, just maybe, some of the people who committed this egregious breach of conduct will read this and learn something. If so, my column then will have accomplished what was intended. If not, then perhaps other people out there reading this will think about their behavior and actions at the poker table and how they affect others.

Let me tell you a story. This incident took place in one of Las Vegas’ nicest Sbobet Indonesia poker rooms. I was sitting in a $15-30 holdem game on a Friday night. The room was completely full that evening — with a good mix of locals and tourists, pros and amateurs alike.

Unfortunately, the game I happened to be in was not very good. There were no smiling faces. No conversation between the players. No one giving or getting much action. In fact, it was even by Las Vegas standards — a bad game. Just as I was getting ready to request the table change and rack-up my chips and move on to greener pastures, something interesting happened. And here’s where my story really begins.

A well-dressed gentleman approached the table. He was carrying two full racks of red chips (and a few assorted greens) in his right hand. I estimate he had about $1300 in front. The man spoke with a heavy accent. In the other hand was a large crystal goblet filled with some kind of bronze alcoholic beverage. Let’s just say that if ever there was the stereotype of a Vegas weekend “tourist,” this was the player that fit the description to …


Judi Online Soccerphile in the Emerald Isle

I’ve just been on a quick trip to Northern Ireland to see relatives but I could not get away from football.


For one thing the Northern Irish are mad about the game, passionate about the Premier League and the big two from Glasgow.


Walk around an Ulster town and you will see more football shirts than in a comparable English town. Travel to Liverpool or Manchester United for a home game and you cannot miss the many Irish accents around.


As it happened, all Ulster eyes were fixed on the telly on Sunday as there was an Old Firm game, a classically passionate affair won by Celtic, the team Irish Catholics gravitate to. Rangers are the Ulster Protestants’ club of choice, their red white and blue colours chiming perfectly with their Union flags.


The Ulster connection with the Glasgow derby remains strong: Celtic manager Neil Lennon is Northern Irish and famously resigned from captaining its national team after Loyalist death threats (he is Roman Catholic); Celtic fans fly Irish tricolours.


The Northern Protestants, predominantly descendants of 17th century English and Scottish colonisers, support Northern Ireland as their national team while the Catholics cheer the Republic of Ireland, established in 1924 after the island’s partition.


As a Judi Online classic marker of the complexity of this island’s politics, Northern Ireland wear green and their badge is a Celtic cross with shamrocks, all symbols of Catholics and the South eschewed by hardcore Unionists who assert their British identity. Confused? You are not the only one.


Northern Ireland has traditionally been the stronger but the Republic enjoyed a golden age under England hero Jack Charlton, reaching the last eight of the European Championship and the World Cup. At Euro 2016 both Irelands reached the last 16.…


Scottish Situs Domino99 Pkv Premier League

The resurgence of fortunes within the Scottish national team continued with a friendly win over Poland in an interesting prelude to the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign. The teams will come up against one another in October in a competitive qualifier, but manager Gordon Strachan dismissed the suggestion that the 1-0 victory, courtesy of a Scott Brown goal, was a psychological advantage.


“It meant absolutely nothing, because there will be changes,” said Strachan. “These two teams won’t be the same. But what it does, for the next couple of months, is give us confidence.” Scotland’s next friendly is likely to be at Fulham’s Craven Cottage in May, with Nigeria having invited Strachan’s side to play them in London.


The win over Poland was Scotland’s third successive away win, and they have gone five Situs Domino99 Pkv matches unbeaten, the past four without conceding a goal.


“That’s good and it’s not easy to do that,” said Strachan, though, somewhat typically, he was not getting carried away with the improvements he has seen since taking over the helm from Craig Levein.


“It wasn’t a great game. I don’t think you could expect anything other than that at this time of the season in a friendly. It gave us a chance to have a look at them and vice versa, but we got some bonuses.”


Strachan also used the game to assess debutant Andrew Robertson. The 19-year-old Dundee United left-back came on as a second-half substitute just a year to the day after playing for amateurs Queen’s Park in a victory over Elgin City in Scotland’s lowest tier.


“I thought it didn’t faze him and that adds to our squad. If he can keep up his performances then there’s no reason why he shouldn’t be in the next …

PartyPoker’s Stock Market Flotation Looks Inevitable

PartyPoker, the world’s biggest online poker site, who, when approached by PokerNews.Info in November, scorched rumours that it was planning to go public, has announced it may float on the London Stock Exchange.

The announcement by PartyGaming (formerly known as iGlobalMedia and owner of that it had appointed two investment banks “to undertake a review of the group’s strategic options” is a common prelude to flotation. The news has sparked much speculation in the British press.


PartyPoker accounts for more than half the worldwide online poker market, with 65,000 people, mostly Americans, playing simultaneously at peak times. Their registrations are believed to be approaching five million.


Last year’s profits were estimated to be in the region of $350 million, with $500-$600 earnings projected for 2005. It therefore comes as no surprise that city analysts have already put a rough value of £3 billion ($5.7 billion) on PartyGaming.


That makes the Gibraltar-registered company worth more than many long-established London Stock Exchange-listed businesses, such as British Airways, ICI, and EMI. Floatation on the London Stock Market is the obvious choice, as the legality of online gambling in the United States remains unclear.


By “going public,” PartyGaming’s publicity-shy quartet of owners are set to attain massive wealth. They consist of founders Ruth Parasol (a colourful Californian lawyer who has already made a fortune from pornographic websites) and Indian computer expert Anurag Dikshit.


Russ de Leon, another American, and Vikrant Bhargava, an Indian marketing executive, joined later with the PartyPoker site launched in 2001 — four years after the company’s [iGlobalMedia] formation.


Just last fall, ParadisePoker’s sale to a UK company made £150 million ($285 million) for its creators, three Canadian computer engineers. A flotation by PartyGaming would dwarf that sum.…


“Old Soccer” gets its Qiu Qiu due



History has been a dirty word in Australian football ever since Frank Lowy’s Football Federation Australia turned the game upside-down in establishing the A-League, cleaned out the bad elements corrupting the sport’s administration and came up with the clever marketing mantra of “new football”.


Rale Rasic


“New football” was intended to delineate this sparkling new era from what came before it – ethnic squabbles, crowd violence, media antipathy; what would pejoratively become known as “old soccer”. Unfortunately, the strategy was so Qiu Qiu successful it also completely tarred the achievements of generations of Socceroos, from the pre-1965 version (when Australia duked it out chiefly against countries of the Commonwealth) to the teams that competed bravely but unsuccessfully in scores of World Cup qualifying campaigns from 1965 till 2001.


I was aghast to find when writing my book, 15 Days in June: How Australia Became a Football Nation, that the Socceroo Club, an informal grouping of ex-Socceroos cobbled together by 1956 Olympian Ted Smith, had asked the FFA prior to an Asian Cup qualifier in Sydney in late 2006 if it could hand out embroidered cricket-style “baggy green” caps to new inductees before the game in front of a 40,000 strong-crowd at the Sydney Football Stadium. They were denied their request and forced to hold their own impromptu function in the bowels of the empty Sydney Cricket Ground next door.


Privately several ex-Socceroos at the function were fuming.


Later John Boultbee, the FFA’s head of high performance, defended the slight by saying: “There wasn’t a lack of willingness to help the Socceroo Club but the FFA simply couldn’t action all its plans simultaneously… we’ve been preoccupied with other things. It’s always been the whole organisation’s intention to embrace those who’ve served the game well, …


My French is just Shocking Agen Slot



The FA cup final is a great British tradition, like a one shot tennis rally or stitching up the Irish.


This year, the top two teams in the country will go head to head in the greatest exhibition since Lady Godiva whipped out her milk dispensers in a brave bid to flee Coventry on the back of one on the Van Nistelrooy clan.


Most bookmakers are treating this year’s showpiece as a ‘Wolverhampton brother and sister match’, they just can’t separate them.


For my money, Manchester United have a definite edge. The Red Devils have looked hotter than a vindaloo-eating, three sweater-wearing, fever-riddled Anna Kournikova all season long; the 10/11 for United to lift the trophy is practically unmissable.


I refuse to shy away from the difficult  questions. Why is it that Jose Mourinho can be arrested for harbouring a potentially dangerous dog, yet Lenny Henry roams the streets with impunity? There is no greater lover of dogs than Mourinho, with the possible exception of Park Ji-Sung. I find the 9/5 for a Manchester United win in 90 minutes completely barking.


Chelsea will have their supporters at 9/5, but the vibes emanating from the Bridge are far from positive. Uncertainty surrounds the future of Lampard, and John Terry’s contract talks break down more often than my old escort. I sometimes wish that Wayne Rooney had never given me her number.


Rooney, Ronaldo and Giggs are all match-winners on their day, but Paul Scholes holds the key to a United victory. Gattuso recently suggested that Scholes likes to take his little matter into his own hands; in fairness to Gattuso, it was an educated guess from the ginger evidence. The 14/1 for a Scholes opener is my best attempt at finding value …


Togel Singapore Interview: Incheon Striker Dejan Damjanovic





Dejan Damjanovic has just started his K-League career and after four goals in the first five game, Incheon United are more than happy with their Serbian star.

You were born in Mostar but now you’re Serbian…


Right. I am from Mostar, the Bosnian capital. My father was Montenegrin. When everything was happening in my country, we went to Serbia. It was wartime and I had to take some nationality. I took Serbian because I lived there for around 15 years.


Did you continue to play football during the war?


When I was a kid, everything seemed normal. It was a normal life. In the beginning all the countries were together, a republic. At the time, I was playing football in Mostar. After everything happened, I was then playing football in Belgrade.


This was 1992-93?


I think so.


What was it like playing football in Belgrade?


In the beginning, it was hard but I played football because I loved playing football. It made me happy and my friends happy –it was familiar and comfortable.


I was a child. If I had been 24 or something then maybe I would have had to join the army. But, as a child, everything became normal and football helped it do that. Children want to talk, to play and that’s what we did.


Before you came to Korea, you played for Bezanija in Serbia.


Yes, we played well. We were fifth at the half-season point –we didn’t lose any games and we beat teams like Partizan and Red Star.

After that, I had some offers. My president was a hard man, he wanted so much money for me. I was lucky to come here and play well.


What other offers …
