Review of Sharp Sports Betting

Stanford Wong is rightfully regarded as one of the most well-respected gambling authors. While he is most noted for his books about beating the game of blackjack, he has also written books on Pai Gow Poker, Video Poker, Casino Tournaments, and other topics. In his first new book for Pi Yee press since 1993, Wong examines the mathematics of advantage sports betting.

The book begins with the basics, explaining the terminology of sports betting and how to interpret the numbers on the walls and screens in a sports book. Wong follows this with a discussion of money management, some information and advice about betting sports on the Internet, and a discussion of mathematics. These sections are all very well written, but I was surprised that there wasn’t more information on proportional betting in the section on money management. Wong mentions what is commonly referred to as Kelly betting, but instead of providing some details about how one would apply this to advantage sports betting, Wong refers the reader to the blackjack literature. Overall, the math is presented in a clear style that should be palatable to anyone who doesn’t have nightmares of their high school math courses. Wong manages to thread the needle pretty well by presenting powerful techniques in a clear manner that doesn’t require an advanced degree to understand.

While Sharp Sports Betting is primarily about selecting good sports bets based on mathematics, the next few sections provide a brief discussion on some aspects of Slot Gacor sports handicapping. One of the things Wong points out here is just how difficult it is to gain an advantage through handicapping, especially on NFL games where the results are so thoroughly analyzed. While it’s still possible to find good bets based on expert handicapping, Wong’s reasons for approaching this aspect of advantage sports betting with some trepidation are well founded.

The next few chapters cover some specific situations which on occasion can be exploited. These include parlays, season win totals, and proposition bets. In my opinion, these chapters include excellent information, perhaps the best sports betting advice I’ve seen in …

The Shadow Brokers Only Accept ZCash Payments for Their Monthly Dump Service Crypto Gambling

It appears The Shadow Brokers are not done with their exploit sharing just yet. In fact, the group has announced a monthly dump service, which would give members access to more NSA hacking tools. It is evident the group aims to capitalize on the success of ransomware and malware attacks using NSA tools. Selling this information has proven to be quite difficult, thus a monthly service makes a lot of sense.

A MONTHLY DUMP SERVICE FOR NSA TOOLS

The Shadow Brokers have been trying to make a name for themselves over the past year or so. When the group first announced they had successfully hacked the NSA, a lot of people started paying attention to what they had to say. At first, they aimed to sell off their information to the highest bidder through a Bitcoin auction. That venture eventually failed, though.

A second attempt was made to sell the obtained NSA tools to the highest bidders, yet that auction was hardly taken seriously by interested parties. The only remaining course of action for The Shadow Brokers was to dump some exploits without receiving a payment. They have done exactly that, which resulted in the recent WannaCry ransomware and SMB worm attacks.

Now that The Shadow Brokers have shown the world what they actually possess, the group is looking to capitalize on the momentum once again. More specifically, they will provide a monthly dump service, which gives clients access to NSA exploits not made public at this time. Among the tools one can find browser and router exploits, compromised network data, and much more. It is certainly possible a lot of cybercriminals will look forward to this monthly membership.

Subscribing to The Shadow Brokers’ service can be done by sending 100 ZCash to the address provided in the group’s message. Do keep in mind users will have until June 30th to make the associated payment. At the time of writing, 100 ZCash equals to roughly 10.7 Bitcoin, worth just under US$25,000. This is not a small membership fee by any means, but the group aims to justify that price by …

August win has Online Casino Singapore casinos smiling

ATLANTIC CITY – An extra Friday, good luck, better weather and maybe pent-up demand led the local casino industry to its second-best month ever in August.

 

The dozen casinos won $426.9 million from gamblers last month, an increase of 5.3 percent over the same period last year, according to unofficial figures obtained by The Press of Atlantic City.

 

The amount trails only July 2000, when the casinos won $429.3 million, in the industry’s ranking of highest-grossing months.

 

It was a pleasing end-of-summer result for the industry, which reported revenue declines in June and July. Gross gambling revenue during the three-month summer period was $1.2 billion, down 0.3 percent.

 

“This summer has been almost like a roller coaster. In July (gamblers) decide they do not want to come on weekends and last month they decide they do,” Sands Casino Hotel President Alfred Luciani said.

 

Several factors worked to the industry’s advantage last month:

 

[] Compared to last year’s August there was an extra Friday, which this year kicked off a packed Labor Day weekend in the city.

 

[] Casinos had good luck at the gaming tables, keeping 16.8 percent of the money exchanged into chips compared to 15.7 percent a year earlier.

 

[] Better weather compared to last year’s wet and relatively cool August.

 

Another, intangible factor may have helped casinos, Resorts Atlantic City President Audrey Oswell said.

 

“Perhaps there was too much focus on the economy in July and by August people realized that it wasn’t as bad as the publicity had led them to believe it was. So they had cabin fever and came out in August,” Oswell said.

 

“August started out strong for everybody and I believe it kept going right through Labor Day,” she said.

 

Through the first eight months this year, citywide Online Casino Singapore revenue was $2.9 billion, 0.6 percent behind last year’s pace. The industry has never reported an annual revenue decline in its 23 years.

 

“I think we’re going to finish the year slightly ahead,” Oswell said. “I think the …

Credit Card Ban Hinders Legitimate Charity from Helping QQ Online Players

There is an unwritten rule in lesser developed nations that expects successful businesses to promote the general well being of its host country. But for one firm, an American ban on credit card transactions is putting a damper on what could be significant funding in poorer regions of the world including Africa and Asia.

 

The company, WildlifeWins (www.wildlifewins.com) was set up to help Wildlife around the world through an online charity offering online donations, scratch card, lottery and bingo games with proceeds going towards the animals. Like many animal charities it relies on proceeds from these ticket sales to fund its activities. What sets this company apart is that WildlifeWins.com sells its tickets exclusively online.

 

“It’s a shame that credit card firms are not utilizing the foresight in their gaming ban to separate legitimate online businesses that fund good causes from the sham operations that they are looking to stop” says co-founder, Carl Pretorius. “If you take a look at our business you will see that we are online to help the animals. This year alone we have raised over $20,000 towards our goal of $945,000 to help save four species of animals including Mountain Gorillas and rare Sumatran Tigers. Unfortunately, through the credit card ban, Americans are increasingly less able to make a contribution.”

 

When you visit WildlifeWins.com you have two options, you can either buy a bingo, scratch card or lottery ticket that gives you the chance to win up to $20 million, or you can make a donation directly to the aid of the animals you wish to preserve. However, with online credit card transactions related to gaming being negatively coded by major US credit card issuers, even cards registering to make direct donations are being rejected.

 

There is a light at the end of this tunnel. Pretorius tells us “Despite the rejection rates for legitimate transactions increasing, WildlifeWins.com was able to raise enough QQ Online money this year to help four endangered species. We are one of the only companies in the world using internet gaming to fund important conservation causes, and …

If You Can’t Raise UFA, Don’t Call At No Time

I get this a lot. Some guy I knew centuries ago sees me playing forty-eighty hold’em and says to me, “what are you doing here?” I sigh.

Stuff like this has gone on most of my life. When you’re a hustler, you end up losing most of the time for the big win at the end. You play the fool. You can never show how good you are. There’s no applause here. You do your job and end up counting money in some hotel room, splitting it with your backers if you have any. Then, you wait for the girls, or the drugs, or the liquor to kick in. Most of the time I would watch TV thinking about all the mistakes I had made. There were always mistakes.

There were dreams too. Hustlers have their personal very unconventional nirvana. Mostly they want to make enough to never have to do it again. Mostly they hate the game they played. Like me. I hated that fact that I could never shine. Never show my stuff.

Heres how it goes. You play bad. Lesson number one. Your backer, who is a former hustler or money guy who likes action shows you. He picks up a few dollars and says this is what you get if you always play good; then he takes out the c-notes wrapped in a rubber band and says this is what you get if you play bad right up until the end. Okay chief. You get the message.

The hustlers are the little wizards of the world. They have the gift. They do something in one particular thing better that almost anyone else and the money rolls in. Still it is never enough. It is too easy. That is the trap.

Of course, the little wizards almost always fail in the end. Their window of opportunity is narrow and short. They never see until its way too late. It’s a peculiar sadness I’ve witnessed many times. The little wizards are in their own universe and this universe is alien and foreign to them and equally scared of …

ligaz11 Poker in the U.K.

The Midland Masters at the Grosvenor Casino Walsall has been the big event since the last newsletter as it contained both the Quarter Million and the Grand Prix Final.

The Grand Prix Final kicked things off and with 27 nationwide heats being held already this generated a prize pool of £193,600.142 players contested the final and this proved to be a major success as it kept the numbers who contested the remaining tournaments at a high level for the week. Well done to Grosvenor for planning things this way.

Although there were no deals allowed at the final table the final 2 players Willie Tann and G. Davidson did make a deal away from the table taking home £39,000 each. G Davidson however went down as the official winner. His prize was further added to as the Casino gave him a holiday for 2 to Las Vegas with £1,000 spending money.

So the week started with a big event and also ended with one in the form of the £2,500 entry Quarter Million. This was not very well attended compared to last year as only 61 participated producing a prize pool of £152,500 which was roughly the same as first prize the year before. However the winner Iqbal Butt was not complaining as he took a first prize of £49,560 in a deal with Charalambos Xanthos who got the same for second.

One player who always features in this newsletter is Lucy Rokach and she won another £20,800 by taking the £500 No Limit Hold’em. Lucy was a former school teacher and it would be great if she would give some lessons in Pokerschool Online. Her results this year have been truly amazing.

The £250 Pot Limit Hold’em went to Oz Mustanoglu £13,620, the £200 Pot Limit Omaha was won by M. Naserisfahny £15,610 and finally the £100 Pot Limit Holdem was won by Man Ip £11,140.

Sports Betting – If-win Bets

If-win bets are based on the results of one particular game. Bettors wager a fixed amount on one team in an If-win bet. If that team wins or the game is tied, then another fixed amount – up to the original amount – is bet on a different team.

 

Your first wager must win in order for you to have action on the remaining wagers. If the first wager loses, there is No Action thereafter. You cannot have duplicate teams in the same If-win wager.

 

Sports Betting – Payoffs and Odds

The payoff for football, basketball, and hockey is $100 for every $110 wagered, unless otherwise noted. Therefore, $110 will be wagered if you specify a $100 straight bet.

 

At odds of 100/110, only 52.5% of your bets have to win for you to overcome the bookmaker’s profit and break even. As a result, the bettor only need a very small edge to become a winner. Some sports bettors win 55- or even 60% or their bets.

 

Parlay bets are another story. The actual odds of picking two winners is 3 to 1, but a typical payout is 2.6 to 1. This gives the sportsbook a 10% advantage, and that’s too much! Worse still, the odds usually get even longer when you add more games to your parlay. In a nutshell, it’s best to avoid parlay bets.

 

Sports Betting – Exotic Bets

Sportsbooks often post odds and accept wagers on a variety of other activities – just to keep life interesting.

 

For example, you may be able to place a bet on who will win the Presidential race or the Best Actor award at the Oscars. The oddsmaker sets the conditions and odds for these bets.

 

Many exotic bets are offered at 110 to 100 odds, but some will be offered at better or worse odds, depending on the bet.

Craig Levett Interview about Casino

CHUCK – Pyramid Casino is offering some sizable bonuses right now. Let’s hear the details.

CRAIG – I think our bonuses are the best on the Web. Right now we offer $50 free with a minimum deposit $50 and a 20% bonus on deposits over $250. Special bonuses are available for deposits over $1000. And no matter how much you deposit you’re entered in our draw to win a Porsche Boxster.

Have you had any problems with “bonus abuse”?

Not really. Some players make deposits, wager the minimum required, then withdraw. But that’s the name of the game.

Pyramid provides Java games as well as download games. Which is more popular?

Our download games are more popular because we offer more games in the download package. But we just launched the brand new Beyond2000 games on our site and they’re fantastic. The games aren’t available for real money wagers yet but players can come in and give them a test drive. We hope to be accepting real money bets on the new games by the end of October.

In addition to the new games, we have some other exciting things in the works: We soon hope to be offering Pyramid Casino credit cards that will make it incredibly fast and easy for players to collect their winnings.

How does that work?

The player simply applies for the card, then when they request a payout, we credit it to that card. Then you can access the funds through an ATM or other banking service.

So payouts will be instantaneous?

With this system payouts should take less than 24 hours. We’re still working out the details but I really hope we can implement this soon.

What else do you have in the works?

We will soon be increasing our deposit limits, at the request of our players. Players will be able to deposit up to $3000 per day and $15,000 per month. We have lots more news and I invite online players to check out the News and Info Section at our site for the latest.
