Irish scaffolder wins Betfair’s 1st tournament

 

Betfairs first online Togel Singapore poker tournament

A 31-year-old scaffolder from County Laois, near Dublin, has won Betfair’s first online poker tournament. His winning hand of a pair of tens sealed his victory over more than 600 entrants and he has walked away with £21,000 prize money, a fifth of the total £100,000 prize money, and a trip for two to the Melbourne Cup next month.

“It’s brilliant and fantastic that I won,” said the Irishman. “The small €5 and €10 tourneys are a great way to get experience and to learn the game. If the cards fall right, anyone can win it – everyone has a chance.”

The scaffolder, who plays under the pseudonym Zxnm, is a relative newcomer to poker. He has only been playing Texas Hold’em for a year and had previously played in just one satellite tournament. He won his place in Betfair’s tournament through a £10 single table satellite.

He has yet to decide what to spend his winnings on and he has never been to Australia before. “I didn’t even realise I was going until after I’d won and I haven’t even thought about who I will take with me.”

Binion murder trial begins

Jury selection has begun in Las Vegas for the retrial of the pair accused of the murder of Ted Binion, who ran Binion’s Horseshoe, the home of the World Series of Poker.

Ted Binion, whose family controlled Binion’s Horseshoe, was found dead in his home Sept. 17, 1998. In May 2000, his girlfriend, Sandy Murphy, and her lover, Rick Tabish, were convicted of his murder and sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole.

In 2003, their murder convictions were overturned by the Nevada Supreme Court and a new trial was ordered. Tabish remained in prison while Murphy was released in December 2003, pending a new trial.

Binion’s family owned the famed downtown Binion’s Horseshoe Hotel & Casino, the home of the World Series of Poker. But he lost his gaming license over allegations of drug use and ties to a mob figure.

He fell …

Innovation In Bookmaking and Free Sports Picks

Q & A withDalton Wagner, Founder V.O. Group, S.A.

As Founder and Proprietor of V.O. Group, S.A., Dalton Wagner has the reputation of ferreting out new markets and attacking while other companies sit on their hindquarters and watch. One market that has always eluded offshore bookmakers is the ‘guy who likes dealing with his credit bookmaker’. Typically this market has been untouchable for the offshore bookmaker, but NOT for Dalton and V.O. Group, S.A. We had an opportunity to catch up with Dalton Wagner on his last visit to Panama.

Vegas Offshore: Tell us about this new product that you are calling your Price Per Head Agency Relationship.

Wagner: As you know, one market that a post-up sportsbook has historically been unable to attack is the huge market of bettors that have been betting with their local guy for years. The reason this market exists is the personal relationship that an onshore bookie has with his clients. Sportsbooks have attempted to educate the player and lure him away from the local bookie, however we have taken another tact. We have partnered with local bookies around the world to make their offering better and more valuable.

Vegas Offshore: So instead of attacking the local guy, you actually approach him with your offer?

Wagner: Exactly. The fact is that the relationship is the last thread holding clients to a local guy. Yes, there is the fact that the local guy extends credit, but with bonuses and promotions we can overcome that offering. The key is the relationship.

Vegas Offshore: I’m confused, please explainFree Sports Picks.

Wagner: As you know, the onshore bookmaking market has lost steam to the offshore providers like V.O. Group, S.A. The reason is that the offerings that I can provide are far superior to those that any onshore bookmaker can offer. The PPH concept is based on allowing the onshore bookmaker to provide his clients my offerings on a purely anonymous basis via an online automated tool. Rather, by signing up with my PPH service, an onshore bookmaker can compete with all offshore sportsbooks on equal …

NC House committee approves video poker regulation changes – Judi Online24jam Deposit Uang

 

 

“We could lose a lot of money and we could lose our business,” said Julie Loflin of Denton, who runs Southern Amusements Inc. with her husband.

 

Committee leaders turned away an Judi Online24jam Deposit Uang amendment by Rep. Sam Ellis, R-Wake, that would have banned the machines. It was identical to a bill that the Senate approved last year.

 

The author of the Senate measure said he didn’t expect Culpepper’s bill to get far if it passes the full House. The Senate has approved outright bans three times since 2000.

 

“I’d be mighty surprised that we’d go along with that,” said Sen. Charlie Albertson, D-Duplin. The House measure effectively pays ALE agents to regulate the industry, he said, “which puts them in a bad position.”

 

A campaign reform group this week asked formally the state Board of Elections to investigate the video poker industry for potential illegal campaign donations to legislators, especially those to Black.

 

The complaint doesn’t accuse Black of Judi Online24jam Deposit Uang wrongdoing. The North Carolina Amusement Machine Association, the industry trade group, “has no knowledge of and would not condone any illegal activity,” said Mark Poovey, an attorney and one of seven outside lobbyists hired by the association.

 

Though Black did not attend the committee meeting, his presence was felt.

 

At least two “floaters” – House members picked by Black and allowed to vote on any committee – attended the hearing and backed the measure.

 

In addition, Black appointed Reps. Nelson Cole, D-Rockingham, and Jim Harrell, D-Surry, to the committee late Tuesday – apparently to ensure additional backing for the measure.

 

“I think that will be about it for me,” Harrell Judi Online24jam Deposit Uang said as he walked out of the committee after voting in favor of passage.

 

This is the type of ruling that any floorperson hates to make. No one wants to see a player knocked out of a tournament because of a situation such as this. The bottom line is that each player is responsible for making sure that his …

Computer Poker Playing with Rubah4d

Poker Academy takes advantage of the fact that most of us learn best by doing with Rubah4d. With sophisticated computer opponents, you will be able to play thousands of hands to improve your Texas Hold’em skills.

There are other places you can play poker, but Poker Academy is your best choice for learning. Sitting down at a real money poker table, be it at a casino, card room, or online, provides a good learning experience but can be very costly. And for beginners just starting out, other players may not be forthcoming with advice that will help you beat them in the long run.

When you play online against other people on a play money site you often find that your opponents are not playing their best game. They realize it is not actual money and do not worry about losing virtual dollars. They very rarely fold, instead gambling on hitting their long shot draws. Playing against these types of opponents can actually hurt your poker game when you decide to make the switch to real money — beating someone who doesn’t care about losing is much different than players trying their hardest to win.

Poker Academy of Rubah4ddoesn’t share these shortcomings. You don’t have to perfect your game while risking money at a casino. And the computer opponents are sophisticated sparring partners. They are not going to take it easy on you because it is not real money. What’s more they will let you look at their cards, change stakes, shuffle up the tables, play with a full table, short-handed, or heads up and are always at your beck and call on your home computer or laptop on the road. All without complaining or giving anything but their best. If you can get to the point where you can consistently beat the hardest opponents Poker Academy has to offer, you will be well prepared to take on the larger poker world.

Playing a large number of hands against serious opponents will improve your game. But you can improve faster by studying some of the hands to a …
