No Sbobet, You Can’t Be A Professional Poker Player

Sbobet

If I have to read one more article about some clown winning some chips and then declaring himself a “professional poker player,” I’m gonna go completely on tilt. I hear and read so much crap about this subject, I’ve just got to put my two cents worth in. My two cents worth is this: You aren’t a professional poker player and you never will be, and neither is anybody else, and nor will they ever be. Am I making myself clear? Do you feel me?

Professional poker players are about as ubiquitous on the American landscape as flying saucers, Big Foots, and verifiable Elvis sightings. The very idea of a professional poker player is some kind of fanciful notion by somebody who got on a roll and won some money, and then romanticized it into a deluded self-image of “professional poker player.” Half the Tom, Dick, and Harry’s in the world who get on a little run while the card gods are smiling on them take this as a sure indication that they are now professional gamblers. These are the guys that don’t have a job and can’t get one; that hang around poker rooms because hanging out on the street for a comparable number of hours is loitering; that come to the poker room every day because they have nothing else to do and nowhere to do it; that fancy themselves too much of a “sharpie” to waste any resources doing anything but watching the cards endlessly go by…etc, etc.

Get it out of your head that you are a professional gambler just because you won some chips. I can beat every self-professed professional poker player in the world heads-up with one hand tied behind my back and they know it, and I’ll give them half their money back just for trying me. That’s an open invitation. My only qualification is once I bust them, they have to sign a contract admitting that they aren’t really a professional gambler and they’re sorry they said they were. That’s all I ask. Because the next time I have to read some half-baked article about ‘what everybody thinks about me now that I’m “a professional player,”‘ I’m afraid I’m going to split my side laughing. There are people who think they’re Napoleon Bonaparte too – don’t forget – but we don’t take that at face value, do we? Well, don’t take these professional gamblers/railbirds/stake-horse hounds/”I spend my life in a poker room” jokers at face value either.

If some broad in a bar takes a picture of herself and then calls herself a “supermodel,” you aren’t going to buy that are you? Same difference. She’s not a supermodel any more than some jack-around with a bunch of chips in front of him is professional poker player. From these harsh judgments I exempt the following people (and few others): Cindy Crawford, Doyle Brunson, Cheryl Tiegs, Johnny Chan, Tyra Banks, T.J. Cloutier, Claudia Schiffer, Puggy Pearson, Twiggy, Chip Reese (once upon a time), Elle McPherson, Scotty Nguyen, Naomi Campbell, Phil Hellmuth, etc. Now THAT’S supermodels and professional Sbobet poker players. Maybe Kathy Kohlberg might be a crossover. They qualify. But you’re not in that kind of company just because you have some chips in front of you.

There may be a few other professionals out there – the Prince of Docness from out of Santa Cruz is making noises like he might be a player – but if you’re not on the preceding list, you might want to check with me to see if you qualify. I guarantee you the odds are way against it. I’ve got the whole list, and it isn’t nearly as long as some would have you think.

For all intents and purposes, forget about being a professional poker player. Chasing poker destiny across the continents has got to be one of the most preposterous “professions” ever heard of. You don’t have to go to school, you don’t have to be able to spell, there’s no salary and no benefits, god knows what the service these talented professionals are offering supposedly is…etc.

I’ve seen some gifted professionals. They work in operating rooms, laboratories, universities, even courtrooms – but not in some smoke-filled poker room trying to borrow some chips when the card gods aren’t smiling on them. The very aspiration to be a professional poker player is a dead giveaway that the suspect in question is undirected, lazy, and no-count. That’s why loitering in a poker room seems like a good idea to him. After all, you can only watch Jerry Springer and game shows so many hours a day. So being a poker scuffler looks like a good idea; that’ll cover some of those other hours when you’re also not doing anything. There’s your professional poker player in a nutshell. If you choose to delude yourself with notions of being a professional player, fine – but keep it to yourself. One too many jack-offs has tried to convince me of this B.S. Every time I hear the latest flash in the pan billing himself as a professional player, I can’t help but think about the girl with a polaroid of herself that thinks she’s a supermodel.

I’ll rest my case with humankind’s supreme illustration of this principle: Even Doc Holliday didn’t bill himself as a “professional gambler.” No, he was a shootout artist, and gambled on the side. Gambling should always be on the side, like Doc Holliday done it. If you put gambling first, it’s because you are too friggin’ degenerate to do anything else. So, using Doc Holliday as my example: first he practiced dentistry, second he shot people, and THIRD he gambled on the side. It’s more respectable that way. History gave him some bad knocks, but Val Kilmer came along (see “Tombstone”) and set the record straight.

Old Doc was a businessman poker player, just like we all should be. So if he helps some fair lady with a toothache in the morning, draws down on her husband in the afternoon, and then gambles all night – at least he’s done something worthwhile. One out of three ain’t bad. But if he just gambled all night, woke up at noon, borrowed some money, and then gambled all night again – like “professional poker players” always end up doing – he wouldn’t be such a great American hero. In other words his day work – dentistry and shootouts – justified his night gambling. Let that be a lesson to all of us. Consider that my final word on the matter.

Bonfrere Under bitcoin dice Fire

bitcoin dice

 

 

 

“Disgrace,” “No strategy!” and “Time to go,” were some of the more restrained headlines in the Korean media after a week of poor results in the East Asian Football Cup.

 

Inevitably, the accompanying pictures showed Coach Jo Bonfrere looking more forlorn than usual as his players failed to beat either China or North Korea and were defeated by Japan – all on home turf.

 

The competition, won by South Korea in December 2003, was supposed to mark the start of the country’s preparations for the World Cup instead it has signalled the beginning of open season against the Dutchman.

 

It was supposed to be a chance for some of the K-League’s young prospects to show what they could do in the absence of European stars like Park Ji-sung and Lee Young-pyo but it demonstrated that without the talented duo, South Korea’s midfield lacks creativity and incisiveness.

 

And it was supposed to be a chance for the hosts to show that they were the region’s top dogs but one goal, two points and last place put paid to any hopes of that.

 

Accusations that Bonfrere is tactically stubborn and too ready to blame his players for his own failings, had gone from the headlines after World Cup qualification was assured a game ahead of schedule but they weren’t forgotten and they soon resurfaced after two dismal draws against China and North Korea.

 

Both teams, ranked well below their hosts in FIFA’s rankings, defended in numbers – China had to as they were reduced to ten men after only six minutes. The problem was that the 2002 semi-finalists never really looked like scoring. The only player to get on the scoresheet was a defender, Kim Jin-kyu, who rifled home a free-kick past the Chinese goalkeeper.

 

Kim Jung-woo, Kim Sang-shik and Yang Sang-min, drafted into midfield for the first two games looked fairly solid defensively, though given the circumstances, they weren’t tested too much in that department, but they offered little going forward.

 

The inability to create chances hasn’t been a big problem for the team in recent history; rather it has been the failure to convert those opportunities which has worried Guus Hiddink’s successors – Humberto Coelho and Jo Bonfrere.

 

Matters improved somewhat in the final game with Japan in Daegu. South Korea dominated the game but still failed to convert possession into chances and they were caught in the 87th minute as the Asian Champions gave their 2002 co-hosts a lesson in taking chances.

 

Unsurprisingly, bitcoin dice fingers were pointed at Bonfrere who had said before the competition – “our target? Three games and three wins.” After three games and no wins, his tune had changed somewhat, “if you look at our target, it was all about testing the players who play in Korea.”

 

Such backtracking didn’t impress the public. Results of internet polls were released showing that over 90% of respondents wanted a new coach – and the KFA gave Bonfrere lukewarm support. “His contract is still safe but I don’t think the KFA should ignore public and media calls forever”, declared You Young-cheul, media director for the Korea Football Association.

 

Perhaps Bonfrere should be worried as he has never been liked by the media and public. He is unemotional, shows no passion and obviously dislikes talking to the media – all traits that are opposite to his compatriot and predecessor, Guus Hiddink.

 

Still, it would be harsh to fire the former coach of Nigeria for three poor results in a fairly unimportant tournament, especially as he has just completed the really important job of reaching a sixth successive World Cup. It would be slightly ironic as Humberto Coelho was sacked for poor qualifying results just four months after lifting the East Asian title in December 2003 – the signals coming from the KFA would be confusing to say the least, if Bonfrere receives the boot for the opposite situation.

 

It is impossible to know the future, of course, but football fans and newspapers all too easily forget the past. Hiddink was almost constantly criticized during his 18 month tenure and suffered worse defeats than Bonfrere. Losing to Canada just four months before the beginning of the World Cup was one low as was two successive 5-0 defeats at the hands of France and the Czech Republic in the summer of 2001.

 

It is a measure of the pressure that the present coach is under that he has called-up Lee Young-pyo from PSV Eindhoven, FC Metz’s Ahn Jung-hwan and Cha Du-ri from Eintracht Frankfurt for August 17th’s inconsequential World Cup Qualifying game with Saudi Arabia. Park Ji-sung will remain in Manchester as Alex Ferguson was assured by the Korean coach that the 24 year-old wouldn’t be necessary for the fixture.

What is necessary in the final game of qualifying is a win, and a much better performance.…

Expert: Mexico close to gambling OK and Trusted Online Casino Singapore

 

 

The government of Mexico, after decades of flirting with legalized gambling, appears poised to approve casino gaming at some point this year, a former U.S. ambassador to that country said Tuesday.

 

James Jones, co-chairman and chief executive of Washington, D.C.-based Manatt Jones Global Strategies, an international trade and government relations firm, told attendees of the American Gaming Summit that “there’s a 60 percent chance” the Mexican legislature will approve a bill legalizing casinos in its next session.

 

That legislature convenes March 15, and will meet through April 30. And if it passes, a licensing process could begin within four months, Jones said.

 

“I would say there’s a very good chance legal gaming will pass in Mexico,” Jones said. “It’s going to create a great deal of opportunities for a lot of people, both in this country and (in Mexico).”

 

Jones served as U.S. Ambassador to Mexico from 1993 to 1997. He served as White House Chief of Staff under President Lyndon Johnson, and served as a Congressman representing Oklahoma.

 

Jones has been hired by Sun International, Sol Kerzner’s Bahamas-based casino corporation, to keep tabs on the developing situation, and he met with Mexican officials as recently as last week. Other companies that appear interested in making a move in Mexico include MGM MIRAGE, Park Place Entertainment Corp. and Jack Binion’s Horseshoe Gaming, Jones said.

 

Jim Murren, president of MGM MIRAGE, responded that no one from the company “is actively pursuing anything in Mexico at this point.”

 

“There’s nothing to pursue,” Murren said.

 

However, if Jones’ prediction is true, “we’ll have to take a real hard look at it, no question,” Murren said. “But at this point, we are not focused on Mexico.”

 

Robert Stewart, spokesman for Park Place, declined to comment directly on the Mexico possibility.

 

“Clearly we’re going to carefully examine any international opportunity that presents itself, and make a (decision) based on whether we feel we’d be welcomed in that jurisdiction, and whether the conditions exist where we could operate properly and meet the standards we’re used to,” Stewart said.

 

Trusted Online Casino Singapore gambling was banned in Mexico in the 1930s, and there has been talk about repealing that ban for at least 20 years, Jones said. The government there examined the issue as recently as 1997, but nothing came of it.

 

For that reason, there is great skepticism in the gaming industry about whether an opportunity in Mexico will actually materialize.

 

“I would love to see (legalization in) Mexico,” said Larry Klatzkin, gaming analyst with Jeffries & Co. “There’s a phenomenal amount of money that could be made.”

 

But international expansion opportunities have a way of appearing and disappearing quite quickly, Klatzkin said — and that’s been especially true of Mexico.

 

“Even if it does happen, it never turns out like you think,” Klatzkin said.

 

The possibility of casino gaming in Mexico returned to the radar screen in 2000, when opposition candidate Vicente Fox made gaming a plank in his campaign platform. Fox was elected president in late 2000, and has since reiterated his support for regulated, legal casinos in that country. But it is Mexican legislators, not Fox, who are spearheading the current drive for legalization, Jones said.

 

There are still several key questions that be resolved before a bill can proceed in the Mexican legislature. One of the biggest is where casinos could be located — and how many licenses the Mexican government would be prepared to issue.

 

Some are pushing for casinos to be located only in designated resort cities or rural areas, while others want gambling legalized nationwide, with states given the option of opting out. Also unresolved is whether more than one casino could operate in each jurisdiction. So is the question of whether casinos would be permitted in Mexico’s urban centers, including Mexico City.

 

It also isn’t known how much of a role federal, state and local officials would play in the ultimate regulation of legal casinos.

 

“These are some questions that need to be worked out (before the bill moves),” Jones said. “The goal is to work through these issues and get this passed by the (legislature) by April 30.”

 

Possible casino sites often mentioned in Mexico typically fall into two categories — cities that border the United States, and Mexico’s resort cities. Border city possibilities usually mentioned include Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez, while potential resort locations include Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta and Cancun.

 

Despite these unanswered questions, Jones is convinced the political climate exists to get a bill through the Mexican legislature.

 

One obvious reason, he said, is the drive by President Vicente Fox to generate additional tax revenues. Jones estimates legal casino gambling could generate $500 million a year in new taxes for that country.

 

But legalization and regulation would also allow Mexico to crack down on illegal gambling throughout that country, Jones said. An estimated 1,500 illegal betting parlors and casinos now operate in that country.

 

“It is really an attempt to regulate the entire gaming industry,” Jones said.

 

Despite a history of money laundering and corruption, Jones said the Mexican economic and political climate has been rapidly maturing since the North American Free Trade Agreement was approved in 1993. And he insists Mexico is committed to implementing a regulatory system that will be able to stack up to Nevada standards.

 

“The system they’re talking about today would stand up (to Nevada’s standards),” Jones said. “I don’t think they’ll move forward unless they can operate in an above-board way.

Jupiters jackpots to record $77.1m

Togel

JUPITERS yesterday beat market expectations with a 14.4 per cent lift in full-year earnings to $77.1 million, but it is targeting expansion offshore to fuel growth as Australia’s saturated casino and gaming sector wallows.

 

The company’s new managing director, Rob Hines, said he wanted at least 50 per cent of profit to come from non-casino operations within a decade under the diversification plan, and at least half that from abroad.

But this could prove a modest target considering Jupiters’ Alice Springs-based sports betting operation, Centrebet, last year doubled revenue to $18.4 million and trebled profit – 87 per cent of which was generated offshore.

 

Mr Hines was elated with the result and forecast another year of double-digit earnings growth, but warned investors the record June 2001 result was $10 million ahead of “theoretical win” level projections.

 

So was the previous year’s profit of $67.4 million. This means the company could well suffer a $20 million or 26 per cent profit dive next year if the odds go against the house to a similar extent.

 

“The underlying business will deliver double-digit earnings growth without us doing anything particularly exciting, based on a theoretical win rate,” Mr Hines said.

 

“I think investors should look at the theoretical even though we have been lucky and we’re paying a higher dividend then we would have.”

 

Nevertheless, the market applauded Jupiters’ good fortune and increased final fully franked dividend to 10c a share, driving the stock price as high as $4.46 before it settled to close 4c stronger at $4.36 on volume of 206,000.

 

In the absence of any real growth opportunities within Australia, Mr Hines said the company would use Centrebet and and Jupiters’ gaming software and networks solution business to “aggressively pursue” opportunities in Scandinavia, Europe and South America.

 

“I don’t believe that there is much more room for expansion in gaming Togel  in Australia,” Mr Hines said. “I think the market is fairly well saturated . . . so the gaming growth has got to come from offshore.”

 

AWA, which Mr Hines once headed and was taken over by Jupiters in January 2000, offered potential to leverage off 30 clients in 16 countries to drive profit growth from the gaming technology business.

 

Despite speculation about consolidation in the domestic casino market, Mr Hines said no proposals had crossed his desk which would enable Jupiters to “grow the pie” in Australia.

 

Jupiters’ founding shareholder structure and state legislation also precluded the prospect of a hostile takeover.

 

 

Mr Hines said the stunning result, struck on a 14 per cent lift in revenue to $771 million, was a tribute to his predecessor Richard Barnes who retired last month after 13 years at the helm.

 

Apart from the above average win rate, the result reflected inclusion of the Breakwater Island Trust’s revenue for the first time of $41.8 million, and AWA’s full-year contribution of $67.9 million.

 

Mr Hines said the food and beverage division had been particularly hard hit by the GST’s introduction, while high-roller commission business revenue had fallen almost 10 per cent due to a 30 per cent drop in “front money” in the face of “softening of world economies, especially Asia”.

Casino Keluaran Hk gambles on text messaging

Keluaran Hk

Staff are called in for extra shifts via text messaging

Behind the scenes at Melbourne’s Crown Casino there is a surprise in store.

At the heart of the Casino’s massive organisation is the humble text message.

The technology that started off as a favourite way for teenagers to organise dates has now graduated to become an indispensable corporate tool.

It is four in the afternoon and Tania Anticev has a problem – the Keluaran Hk Casino is getting busy and she needs to open another room of gaming tables.

But right now there are not the staff on duty to do it.

Instead of hitting the phones, Crown’s chief scheduler heads for her computer to type a global text message that will go out immediately to the mobile phones of all casual staff.

The first ones to ring in get the night’s job.

Running out of time

Lyla is one of Crown’s 400 casual and part time workers.

When her phone beeps during coffee at one of the south bank’s riverside cafes, Lyla knows she has to act fast.

Crown will fill all of the 20 or so shifts on offer in a matter of minutes.

It is a process that used to take Tania and the scheduling team hours.

“The main benefit is saving time from our end.

“We’d spend a lot of time trying to contact 2-400 people, ringing them individually.

“And when you’re working to tight deadlines you can sometimes run out of that time.”

Customer demand

In a busy month, Crown will send up to 10 SMS or text messages to its pool of casuals.

A text to all staff cost $55 to send

In a highly automated business, saving that amount of time adds up to big cost savings.

For the carriers, that is the key selling point of corporate SMS.

Telstra’s Chris Newlan markets it as a productivity tool.

“Wireless Data as a proportion of total Telstra Mobile revenue is increasing and is now around 8 or 9 percent of our total revenues and is increasing over time.

“That is largely being driven by SMS use by our corporate customers.”

Gains for wireless networks

Back at the Casino, the animatronic all-singing and dancing Christmas display is drawing in the crowds and it is time for Lyla to get to work.

The message that brought her in just one of the 400 million or so sent each month in Australia.

And if you think the House always wins – that text to Crown’s pool of casuals cost about $55 to send.

In this game, it is the wireless networks that are hitting the jackpot.

Beberapa Game Hebat Yang Akan Membantu Anda Melatih Otak Anda

slot online

Otak adalah otot, dan seperti semua otot, otak perlu dilatih secara teratur agar tetap berkinerja terbaik. Tapi tidak seperti pergi ke gym dan berolahraga di treadmill, melatih otak Anda sebenarnya bisa sangat menyenangkan.

 

Jika Anda setelah latihan otak, baca terus untuk menemukan beberapa permainan hebat yang akan membantu Anda melatih otak Anda.

 

Permainan judi online

Dari solitaire, togel online bahkan hingga rummy, tidak ada kekurangan permainan kartu yang menyenangkan untuk dimainkan. Meskipun ini mudah untuk duduk dan mulai bermain, dibutuhkan mata yang cerdas untuk menang, menjadikannya sempurna untuk beberapa latihan otak.

 

Coba tebak angka dan gunakan keberuntungan anda dalam fungsi utama memenangkan permainan togel online. Dalam permainan togel online, anda harus menggunakan insting dan mengutamakan keberuntungan anda untuk bisa menang dalam situs togel online.

 

Ambil poker, misalnya. Permainan kartu mengharuskan Anda untuk mengetahui kapan harus memukul, kapan harus menaikkan, dan mungkin yang paling penting kapan harus melipat juga. Ini mengharuskan Anda untuk meningkatkan keterampilan berpikir strategis dan logis Anda, serta membuat Anda menajamkan perhatian dan fokus Anda juga.

 

Jika Anda seorang pro poker, mengapa tidak mencoba sesuatu yang baru? Poker nanas terdengar mirip dengan Texas hold’em, tetapi sebenarnya mereka adalah dua permainan yang berbeda. Ini menawarkan sentuhan yang bagus pada versi klasik yang akan menantang bahkan hold’em pro yang paling terampil sekalipun.

 

Permainan konsentrasi

Seperti namanya, ini sangat cocok untuk meningkatkan tingkat konsentrasi Anda jika Anda kesulitan untuk fokus. Banyak dari Anda mungkin memainkan ini selama masa sekolah Anda — premisnya sederhana: letakkan kartu persegi menghadap ke bawah, dan setiap pemain mengambil dua kartu sekaligus dalam upaya untuk mencocokkannya.

 

Selain meningkatkan daya ingat, permainan konsentrasi juga menuntut setiap pemain untuk berkonsentrasi keras saat bukan giliran mereka juga. Melihat apa yang dicari pemain lain dan apa yang mereka hindari memberi Anda kesempatan untuk masuk dan mencocokkan pasangan sebelum orang lain melihatnya.

 

Jika Anda ingin membuatnya sedikit lebih sulit, hindari bentuk persegi dan pilih pola yang lebih berantakan. Ini menghilangkan titik referensi (misalnya sudut kanan atas, kartu tengah, dan sebagainya), sehingga lebih sulit untuk mengingat di mana setiap kartu berada.

 

Catur

Tidak ada daftar game pelatihan otak yang lengkap tanpa menyebutkan catur. Terkenal di seluruh dunia sebagai permainan papan yang menantang yang membutuhkan kesabaran yang dalam dan mata ilahi untuk masa depan agar tetap tiga langkah di depan lawan Anda, ini adalah pelatih otak pamungkas (dan orisinal).

 

Tujuan permainan ini sederhana: skakmat raja lawan Anda. Namun, permainan itu sendiri tidak sesederhana itu. Pasukan pion, benteng, ksatria, uskup, ratu, dan raja Anda masing-masing memiliki kemampuan bergerak yang berbeda. Akibatnya, ini mengharuskan Anda untuk melatih keterampilan dan logika dalam upaya menggunakan bidak Anda untuk mencapai tujuan Anda.

 

Selain meningkatkan kemampuan berpikir logis Anda, catur juga dikenal dapat meningkatkan daya ingat. Semakin banyak Anda bermain, semakin baik ingatan Anda tentang strategi dan taktik. Ini meluas ke bagian lain dari hidup Anda, membantu meningkatkan daya ingat di bagian lain dari hidup Anda juga.

 

Rekam video game mereka

Shoot ’em ups adalah subgenre video game klasik yang telah ada hampir selama konsol game. Dimulai dengan Space Invaders dan berlanjut hingga seri Call Of Duty yang sangat sukses, shoot ’em up akan selalu populer.

 

Bagi banyak orang, kesenangan menghancurkan pesawat luar angkasa alien adalah hal yang memikat. Tetapi penelitian menunjukkan bahwa shoot ’em up dapat meningkatkan kemampuan kognitif pada pemain, khususnya dengan membantu mereka memelihara kepekaan yang tinggi terhadap dunia di sekitar mereka.

 

Dalam sebuah penelitian, pemain yang bermain shoot ’em up mampu membuat keputusan 25% lebih cepat daripada mereka yang memainkan game lain yang lebih berbasis strategi. Manfaat kognitif dari shoot ’em up lebih diperparah dengan peningkatan koordinasi tangan-mata yang disediakan oleh permainan tersebut.

 

Shoot ’em ups hanyalah salah satu subgenre video game yang tersedia. Masih ada yang lain yang memberikan berbagai manfaat bagi otak, menunjukkan bahwa video game tidak hanya untuk kentang sofa.

 

Siapa bilang olahraga tidak bisa menyenangkan? Game seru di atas akan menantang otak Anda untuk tetap bekerja dengan baik. Beberapa permainan klasik lama, seperti poker atau catur, sementara yang lain sedikit lebih modern, seperti video game. Untuk mendapatkan atau memainkan games games tersebut anda dapat bermain di judi slot online palace303. Cobalah permainan di atas dan mulai rasakan manfaatnya untuk otak Anda.

Max Potent and MEMBER XXL UK

MEMBER XXL UK

Evaluation of the individual characteristics of the product:

Max Potent are drops for penis enlargement. They have been made with natural ingredients. According to the manufacturer, this drug does not produce side effects and there are no contraindications to its use.

The drops are distinguished by their easy use. The manufacturer emphasizes that the product provides long-term effects that last even up to half a year.

The use of drops is simple. You have to do it three times a day. It is enough to fill half a teaspoon with drops and then add water – 250 ml. This drink must be taken by man before each main meal.

Men are increasingly wondering how to enlarge the penis that does not meet their expectations, and does not help satisfy their partner. They regret this for a long time, but they are afraid of surgery and do not know of other methods. Today, a visit to a specialist is the last option. Just stock up on good penis enlargement pills to get a satisfying effect.

List of products, which have to serve men specifically in this matter is quite long. But certainly not all are as effective as consumers would like. That is why you need to make a solid selection and, in the form of acceptance and rejection, choose the best product. Useful can be rankings, especially those created completely selflessly. You can also try MEMBER XXL UK

Good penis enlargement pills can replace strenuous exercises and operations or surgeries. The only downside to all of this is that the pills must be taken regularly, at certain times, and the best results are seen within a few weeks. However, for many men it is not a problem, what matters is effectiveness.

Some men are satisfied with their exercises that help lengthen and thicken the penis. They only complain that you need to do these exercises for a long time and regularly to see the first changes, and these are not as great as you can expect. Unfortunately the exercises take up a lot of time, which most men just don’t have. So there is an interest in taking pills.

Fortunately, the pills offered today are safe for the body, because manufacturers make them with natural ingredients. In this way the capsules contribute to the elongation and thickening of the limb. The effects cannot be seen after taking a capsule, but after a few weeks the changes notice not only the man, but also the woman from him

Short-handed ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล Hold’Em:

 

In the last article, we examined the relative value of starting hands in full and shorthanded games. To summarize, in shorthanded games implied odds are reduced, big cards take down pots unimproved, and hand domination is infrequent. Part II of this topic revolves around the blind structure. Blinds orbit quickly in a shorthanded game. At its most extreme is heads-up hold’em, where both players post a blind. In this article, we will examine heads-up preflop play so that we can review fundamental concepts before moving to larger shorthanded games.

 

Heads-Up Play

 

Heads-up play is analyzed by Sklansky and Malmuth in Hold’Em Poker for Advanced Players. If you do not own this book (and study it religiously), then you are placing yourself at a great disadvantage. The first concept offered by Sklansky and Malmuth concerns the preflop play required by the blind structure.

 

In a $10/20 game, the small blind has anted $5 and the big blind has anted $10. If the small blind raises, he is betting $15 to win $15. So, he must steal the blinds only 50% of the time to earn immediate profit (assuming no raising and all things are equal postflop). If the big blind folds too often, the small blind would earn a significant profit by raising 100% of the time preflop. In fact, since the small blind would also win some hands after the flop, the fold percentage required for profit is far less. In other words, blind stealing works incredibly well!

 

It Gets Worse…

 

Furthermore, the small blind has a positional advantage after the flop. Position will allow the small blind to bluff more successfully, earn extra bets with big hands, or save bets in many situations. Not only do heads-up games feature a large volume of hands, but plays such as bluffs and semibluffs hold more consequence. Consider the following examples.

 

Example 1.

It is a normal $2/4 heads-up game, with one exception. You must pay your opponent $20,000 if you play a ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล hand preflop. Clearly, to keep your losses at a minimum, you would never play a hand.

Example 2.

It is the same normal $2/4 heads-up game, except you must only pay $1 if you play a hand preflop. Many holdings such as AA are still clearly profitable, but you would think twice before playing most hands, since there is a hefty fee to overcome each time you compete.

 

Defending the big blind is similar to example 2 above. The exact amount lost by not having position differs with the competition, but the disadvantage always exists. For each hand that goes to the flop, the player with position will benefit because they will have an enhanced ability to profitably bluff, earn an extra bet on good hands, or save a bet with bad ones. How can a big blind out of position minimize its losses or even earn a profit against such obstacles?

Defending the Big Blind

 

Sklansky and Malmuth suggest defending with 40% of all hands, and reraising with the top quarter of those, based on the idea that this calling/raising strategy neutralizes the preflop advantage of raising 100% of the time from the small blind. I propose that this advice is too passive. Furthermore, the percentage of hands played should be fluid, based on the competition’s play after the flop as well as preflop.

 

Before going any further, let’s repeat the authors definition of playable hands, counting up to 40%. “Any pair, any ace, any other two cards that are both nine or higher, any other straight flush combination with no gaps or just one gap (except for 42s and 32s), and any king little suited. (You might add in a few more hands such as J8s, 98, or 97.)”

 

Many beginning players might wonder how to figure out that these holdings represent 40% of all possible hands. It is possible to double-check the authors’ work by reviewing the number of combinations of each holding. Since there are 1326 possible 2-card combinations, a hand like AA, which can be made six different ways, represents (6/1326) of all possible starting hands. In percentages, this equates to ~0.45% of all hands, or about 220:1. Two cards of unknown suits can be combined sixteen different ways, while a suited hand is only formed with four possibilities (e.g. AK, AK, AK, AK). One resource for an aspiring player who is truly interested in learning the fundamental probabilities is Hold’em’s Odds Book by Mike Petriv.

 

Reraising Preflop

 

There are three main reasons for adopting a more aggressive reraising strategy to effectively combat the stealer. Reraising punishes the stealer, sets up profitable postflop play, and establishes variation.

 

Punish the opposition.

I’m not the first person to suggest reraising to slow down your opponent on future action. In fact, Sklansky and Malmuth make it apparent that it is critical for your opponent to worry that a raise will cost more than it appears. As they say, “He needs to know that he’s in jeapordy of a reraise. Thus you frequently reraise for the sake of future hands, not the hand that you are holding.”

But is reraising 10% of your hands enough? 10% represents the cream of the crop: AA-99 (6 possible combinations each), AK-AT(16 combinations each), KQ(16), KJs(4), KTs(4), QJs(4), JTs(4). These hands are so dominating that many of them would be 3-bet in a full ring game. Versus a steal raise, the selection is too thin.

 

More importantly, reraising 10% of the time will likely not even affect a blind stealing opponent who is raising 100% of the time preflop. Out of 10 hands, the stealer will immediately win the blinds 6 times, play on the flop against an out of position caller 3 times, and face a reraise only once. In this situation, even against a reraise, it becomes pretty easy for the small blind to fold if the flop doesn’t hit him hard, since he knows he is competing against a premium hand.

 

Set up Flop play.

‘If you’re going to be in the hand to the end, you might as well get the money in early.’ I’m not sure where I read or heard the above advice, but it makes a lot of sense. With a powerful hand, you want to put pressure your opponent and make him pay for the right to outdraw you. You want to earn the most money possible, and fundamentally, you want to get your money in while you are ahead. (This is an oversimplification, but it works for shorthanded play due to a concept called ‘clustering’.)

Mason Malmuth wrote about shorthanded play in Poker Essays, a good book for advanced players to hone specific theories. “Concept No. 3: Be prepared to go to the river.” Basically, if your hand is strong and unless the board develops in a very scary manner, you will often want to showdown. Since you will be going to the river with many hands, you should get the money in early, which makes a showdown strategy more likely to be correct and profitable in the long run.

 

A second factor is initiative. I mentioned above that most preflop stealers will not be affected by reraises, especially those raising 100% of the time preflop. In my experience, most opponents simply fold if the flop didn’t hit their hand since they expect to be against a monster hand. Even those who do not habitually steal raise will still respect an opponent who reraised preflop. In other words, if you are the big blind and raise with a hand like JTs, you should virtually always bet on the flop, even if the flop misses entirely. Putting the pressure back on your opponent is critical. Opponents may simply concede on the flop, expecting to be against a very powerful hand and not wishing to pay a turn and river bet to see a showdown.

 

Establish variation.

The third reason to increase aggression preflop and reraise with a wider selection of hands addresses the predictability of the play. 10% narrows the possible hands considerably, and it creates an undeniable problem if the flop arrives with 3 rags. Under Sklansky and Malmuth’s advice, you would be reraising with big cards 3 out of 4 times; this is simply too predictable against even average competition.

So, what is appropriate for a reraise preflop from the big blind? What if we added 88-66(6 combinations each), KJo(12), KTo(12), QJo(12), QT(16), A9s-A2s(4 combinations each), T9s(4), and 98s(4)? The total is an additional 110 hands, which progresses the amount of reraising hands to 18.25% of total hands. Notice that most of these hands can be taken to a showdown, yet they create enough variation to make any flop potentially dangerous for your adversary.

 

Watching the opposition

An aggressive counterstrategy is only part of the equation. You will still be calling with other hands. You will still need to vary your play to keep your opponent off your scent. I recommend slowplaying AA or KK sometimes, reraising with lesser holdings on occasion, and following up with occasionally unpredictable flop play. Keep them guessing. Meanwhile, watch your opposition. Preflop, you will adjust your standards in the same direction as your opponent. If the small blind stops raising half the time, you should not call as often, since you will too often be playing bad cards with bad position, a costly combination. Reraising is still valuable but should be reduced as well. You want to slow down against an opponent who raises only with legitimate hands.

 

In addition, you must consider the postflop play of your opponent. If the opponent plays very well with position: earning extra bets, staying aggressive, and following a solid bluffing strategy, then he will earn a significant advantage each hand played on the flop. With your higher postflop burden, you must adjust by folding more preflop. Against an expert, you will fold quite often (and therefore call less than Sklansky and Malmuth’s recommended strategy). The important thing to note is that you will be losing money by folding the big blind more often. Repeat: YOU WILL BE VOLUNTARILY LOSING!!!! But you will lose less money folding than playing marginal hands that cost extra bets after the flop. Sometimes (often) you cannot win in the big blind of a heads-up matchup; your best choice is simply to minimize losses. Don’t worry; you’ll make your profits when you are in position and have the advantage.

 

Slow ’em Down

 

Finally, a good preflop game will complement the overall strategy. Getting the money in early with the best hand will help to mitigate your positional disadvantage to some degree. But the best reason to stay aggressive may be intimidation. If you can scare your opponent into slowing down, you will begin to win the blinds for free, and you will not be forced to play at a disadvantage so often. In other words, you want your opponent to stop raising your blinds. So snarl (metaphorically) and attack back! Until next time, good luck!

The Gambling Industry Shows its Support to Judi Online Terpercaya

Judi Online Terpercaya

Many people are still in shock after last week’s terrorist attacks in the U.S., but that hasn’t stopped them from helping those affected by this disaster. Donations have been pouring in to relief agencies, and the gaming industry is offering its support as well.

Many large brick-and-mortar casino companies have made sizeable donations to the relief effort over the past week. Mandalay Resort Group and Harrah’s Entertainment each donated $1 million to the families of the New York policemen and fire fighters who were killed in the attacks.

MGM Mirage made its own $1 million donation to the American Red Cross relief effort, while Pinnacle Entertainment will be donating a minimum of $500,000 to the children of victims and the Mohegan Tribe will donate $1 million to the Twin Tower fund. The fund will assist the families of those killed in the World Trade Center as well as the families of the fire and police personnel who lost their lives.

The online gambling industry has also stepped up to the plate and has contributed to the relief effort. Casino on Net has donated $50,000 on behalf of its staff and members to The September 11th Fund of United Way of New York.

Paypal, the online payment service used by many Judi Online Terpercaya casinos, is also collecting donations. To date, PayPal donations total $1.43 million; 100% of the money raised goes to the National Disaster Relief Fund of the American Red Cross.

WINNERonline has made its own donation to the American Red Cross and challenges all other online gambling portals, news sites, and online casinos to make a similar contribution to this worthy cause.

Donations can be made through Yahoo.com to any of the following relief agencies: the American Red Cross, the New York Firefighter’s Fund, and the Salvation Army. These three funds have raised more than $21 million to date and continue to grow daily.
