New Face for the World toto sgp Poker Tour

Courtney Friel has been announced the new face of the World Poker Tour after previous hostess Shana Hiatt decided to step down.

Courtney graduated from San Diego State with a BA in Political Science and minored in Broadcast Journalism. She has since taken that to working in the high pressure world of network television and reporting with Channel One in Los Angeles, working as an anchor and reporter in Jackson, TN, and currently still works in news with toto sgp in Palm Springs, CA. Beyond just her news skills, she has also been highly sought after by other networks for her entertainment reporting, including E! Entertainment Television, Nickelodeon, EBTV Gaming and other shows.

Despite knowing hardly anything about poker before auditioning for the part, Courtney stresses that she would like to bring a lot to the World Poker Tour through her experience in other areas.

“During my audition, I didn’t even know what going “all in” meant! I would kind of say, “OK, he’s going all in…,” not truly grasping the severity of how serious that move is! Once I explained my background in news, where I had to take a large amount of information in a short time and then present it convincingly to viewers in a manner that they could understand and that I would learn the game, the people at the WPT were a little more comfortable with me.

“I really want to be able to produce some of the segments that come up on the program. I like to write and I think I can bring some great things to the Tour. With it being the Travel Channel, as well, I would like to look at the many interesting things that are part of each stop that we have on the Tour and bring that to the viewers.

“I already am getting out into the audience more than what has been seen in previous seasons. I enjoy doing interviews with the audience, the family members of the players and the players themselves. It wasn’t something that was done too much in years previous to this one.”

We wish Courtney Friel the best of luck hosting the upcoming Season Four of the World Poker Tour due to start in March.

Permainan yang terampil, bukan pengaturan waktu, memenangkan Login Sbobet hari ini!

Suami saya berpikir bahwa jika dia “menghitung waktu” ketika dia menekan tombol undian, itu akan meningkatkan kemenangannya. Jadi, alih-alih bermain dengan kecepatan yang sama, dia akan melambat atau melaju lebih cepat, tergantung bagaimana perasaannya terhadap mesin tersebut. Apakah ada logika untuk mesin tertentu yang membayar lebih baik jika Anda bermain lebih cepat atau lebih lambat? Vicky C.

Sinkronisitas mungkin atau mungkin tidak memiliki waktu dan tempat, tetapi dengan mesin video poker, itu diragukan. Tapi pertanyaanmu, Vickie, membuatku berpikir. Sebagian karena klaim kekuatan paranormal tidak pernah bertahan di bawah pengawasan ilmiah, Yayasan Pendidikan James Randi telah menawarkan $ 1.000.000 kepada siapa saja yang dapat mendemonstrasikan sesuatu yang supernatural. Mungkin jika teori suami Anda dapat bertahan terhadap pemeriksaan sistematis, gajian mungkin lebih baik daripada jika dia memiliki royal flush yang sulit dipahami. Belum ada yang mengklaim 1.000.000, tetapi kita dapat memikirkannya dengan baik. Pemain yang terpesona oleh bintang (seperti suami Anda?) yang percaya diri mereka akan menang dari waktu ke waktu; tetapi dalam jangka panjang, pemain yang bermain di mesin yang membayar lebih tinggi, menolak keinginan, firasat dan waktu, dan menunjukkan keterampilan bermain dengan pilihan membuang yang optimal, akan selalu melakukan jauh lebih baik.

Mark yang terhormat,

Di beberapa kolom Anda, Anda menyebutkan kata “menggiling.” Bagaimana apanya? Steve R.

Dalam bahasa perjudian kasino, Steve, grind dapat digunakan dalam berbagai cara. Pemain Sbobet Login yang menggiling umumnya merupakan istilah yang terkait dengan roller rendah. Sambungan penggilingan adalah kasino yang melayani rol rendah ini. Lalu ada penggilingan ke bawah. Di sinilah kasino akhirnya memenangkan semua uang pemain karena keuntungan bawaan yang dimilikinya pada semua taruhan. Terakhir, sistem Togel Singapore Hongkong penggilingan. Ini adalah sistem apa pun yang digunakan oleh pemain yang mencoba memenangkan sejumlah kecil secara sering melawan kasino. Sayangnya, yang terakhir sangat tidak mungkin.

Mark yang terhormat,

Saya baru-baru ini bermain game omong kosong, dan stickman terus meneriakkan “sarapan kontinental lagi”. Apa yang dia bicarakan tadi? Bob D.

Dua gulungan dan tidak ada kopi. Ini adalah saat penembak melempar poin diikuti langsung oleh 7 out, line away. Bukan sarapan dingin, Bob, tapi permainan omong kosong yang tak bernyawa.

Mark yang terhormat,

Hampir setiap akhir pekan saya mengunjungi kasino di Joilet. Kakak ipar saya percaya mereka mengencangkan mesin slot di akhir pekan karena kerumunannya jauh lebih besar. Bagaimana saya tahu pasti bahwa kasino tidak akan mengubah pengembalian mesin mereka? Randy C.

Jangan takut, Randy. Illinois, yang memiliki peraturan permainan yang kaku, membutuhkan dua kunci hanya untuk membuka mesin slot. Satu dipegang oleh karyawan kasino, yang lain oleh regulator permainan negara. Ini mencegah perubahan dalam tingkat pembayaran mesin.

Mark yang terhormat,

Saat bermain blackjack, saya perhatikan bahwa di beberapa kasino, dealer mengambil kartu atas sebagai kartu pertamanya, dan di beberapa kasino, kartu atas dealer adalah kartu terakhir yang dibagikan. Apakah ini membuat perbedaan bagi saya, sebagai pemain? Kim J

Menangani kartu pertama atau terakhir secara ketat didasarkan pada prosedur meja yang ditetapkan oleh manajemen kasino. Kondisi bermain tidak dipengaruhi oleh dealer yang memutar kartu pertama atau terakhir.

Perjudian memikirkan minggu ini: “Subjek perjudian mencakup semua hal. Ini menggabungkan naluri bermain alami manusia dengan keinginannya untuk mengetahui nasib dan masa depannya.” Franz Rosenthal, Perjudian dalam Islam (1975)

De Rosario Reli Houston Dynamo Untuk Ulangi di Piala MLS Bandar Togel Online

Ketinggalan satu gol dengan waktu kurang dari setengah jam tersisa di kampanye 2007 mereka, Houston Dynamo bangkit di belakang permainan tanpa henti Dwayne De Rosario untuk mengalahkan New England Revolution, 2-1, di RFK Stadium di Washington DC, Sabtu (18/11). ) dan merebut gelar Piala MLS keempat tim dalam tujuh tahun.

De Rosario, 29, memberikan umpan kepada rekan setimnya Joseph Ngwenya, tepat di depan gawang lawan pada menit ke-62. Ngwenya melakukan dua tembakan titik kosong ke kiper Matt Reis, yang kedua lolos untuk menyamakan kedudukan.

Beberapa saat kemudian, pemain kelahiran Kanada De Rosario mencetak gol kemenangan sendiri, menyundul umpan silang dari jarak sekitar 12 yard pada menit ke-74. “Saya biasanya akan melakukan tendangan voli,” kata De Rosario, mengomentari gol tersebut setelah pertandingan, “tetapi saya memutuskan untuk menyundulnya dan untungnya itu masuk.”

Hanya 3 menit dari waktu penuh, kiper Houston Pat Onstad menyelamatkan kemenangan timnya dengan penyelamatan menakjubkan dari ledakan Jeff Larentowicz dari dalam garis 8 yard.

Kemenangan Bandar Togel Online menandai gelar Pengeluaran hk kedua berturut-turut sejak Gempa San Jose pindah ke Houston dan berganti nama menjadi Dynamo. Tim juga memenangkan Piala MLS–sebagai San Jose–di ’01 dan ’03.

New England sekarang telah bermain di 3 terakhir, dan 4 dari 6 terakhir, final Piala MLS, tetapi belum pergi dengan trofi.

Kualifikasi Euro 2008: Inggris pasti lolos

kualifikasi Eropa

Hari terbaik untuk sepak bola Inggris. Dan Inggris bahkan tidak bermain.

Ozren Podnar melaporkan…

Sabtu yang luar biasa untuk sepak bola Inggris! Inggris tidak bermain, tetapi Israel melakukannya, dan Makedonia juga. Tidak hanya satu hasil yang diraih Inggris pada hari yang mulia itu, tetapi dua! Israel mencapai prestasi yang tak terbayangkan mengalahkan Rusia dengan 2-1, bahkan ketika hasil imbang tampak tak tergoyahkan; satu jam kemudian, Kroasia yang tak terkalahkan akhirnya menyerah pada Makedonia yang rendah, yang sangat jarang memenangkan pertandingan di kandang (tepatnya empat kali dalam tujuh tahun terakhir).

Salah satu dari skor yang tidak mungkin ini akan menyelamatkan Three Lions dari keterpurukan instan dari eliminasi dari Euro yang akan datang. Pada akhirnya, kedua hasil itu keluar seolah-olah Steve McClaren sendiri yang merancangnya.

McClaren telah menjadi sasaran ribuan artikel kasar yang berasal dari penampilannya yang kurang cemerlang sebagai pelatih Inggris, tetapi tongkat yang dia miliki pada akhirnya mungkin terbukti tidak dapat dibenarkan. Ternyata tim yang dihina dan dicerca yang dilatih oleh manajer yang tampaknya tidak kompeten hanya membutuhkan hasil imbang di kandang pada hari Rabu untuk lolos.

Terlebih lagi, mereka sebenarnya bisa memenangkan grup kualifikasi mereka, jika mereka mengalahkan Kroasia dengan selisih 2-0 atau tiga gol di Wembley. Bagaimana itu untuk sebuah kegagalan?

McClaren “tidak puas dengan hasil imbang”

Ditawarkan penyelamat oleh pihak ketiga yang tidak diinginkan dalam bentuk Israel, McClaren berencana untuk mengambil keuntungan penuh dari situasi baru ini dan membuktikan bahwa Inggris pantas lolos dengan kemampuan mereka sendiri. Dengan demikian timnya tidak akan berusaha untuk merebut poin sedikit melawan Kroasia, tetapi akan pergi untuk menang langsung.

“Bukanlah sifat Inggris untuk pergi dan bermain untuk hasil imbang,” kata McClaren, menurut AFP.

“Kami di sana, kami di kursi pengemudi. Terserah kami untuk memastikan kami menyelesaikan pekerjaan.

“Apa pun formasinya, kami harus positif dan keluar untuk memenangkan pertandingan.

“Itulah yang kami lakukan di paruh kedua musim. Itu memberi kami hasil dan kami harus melanjutkannya.

“Begitulah cara kami akan mendapatkan hasil pada hari Rabu. Tapi kami harus mendapatkan keseimbangan karena pada akhirnya kami tahu clean sheet akan membuat kami lolos.”

Sangat beruntung bahwa Kroasia secara matematis telah mengamankan kualifikasi mereka, kebetulan untuk acara besar keempat berturut-turut, sehingga skuad mereka akan bersantai secara optimal di Wembley. Karena Kroasia bukanlah Israel. Slavia sangat senang mereka lolos ke Kejuaraan Eropa sehingga mereka akan pergi ke London dengan santai dan tanpa keunggulan kompetitif yang menjadi ciri mereka sepanjang musim.

Inggris, jangan takut

Relaksasi terlihat jelas di paruh kedua pertandingan Makedonia: setelah mengetahui selama jeda babak pertama bahwa Israel telah melakukan pekerjaan untuk mereka, para pemain kembali ke lapangan Skopje yang berlumpur dengan ide untuk melakukan gerakan. Antara menit ke-70 dan ke-80, pertahanan Kroasia tidak terlihat seperti mesin efisien yang biasanya tidak kebobolan dalam delapan dari sepuluh pertandingan sebelumnya. Hasil dari pendekatan seperti itu adalah kekalahan pertama dalam pertandingan kualifikasi dalam 50 bulan, kekalahan pertama melawan mantan tim Yugoslavia lainnya setelah 19 skor positif dan kekalahan pertama di era Slaven Bilic.

Setelah kalah di Tel-Aviv, pelatih Rusia Guus Hiddink mengatakan bahwa ia mengharapkan Kroasia untuk bertarung di Wembley sama kerasnya dengan Israel melawan pasukannya.

“Tim Bilic memiliki kualitas untuk mengalahkan Inggris dan memungkinkan kami lolos,” kata pelatih asal Belanda itu. Kemungkinan itu terjadi sangat rendah.

Guru Perjudian Berbicara Blackjack

Saya baru mulai bermain blackjack dan masih dalam proses belajar. Saya sudah mencoba strategi dasar dan menghitung tip tapi sepertinya saya kalah lebih dari apa yang saya menangkan. Apakah strategi ini selalu berlaku atau saya melewatkan sesuatu?

Sang Guru menjawab:

Banyak orang yang baru mengenal blackjack salah memahami fungsi strategi dasar. Anda tidak bisa menang bermain strategi dasar sendirian! Tujuan dari strategi dasar adalah untuk memungkinkan Anda bermain dalam 2% dari rumah. Anda bahkan mungkin melakukan lebih baik dari itu jika kasino menawarkan aturan yang menguntungkan. Tetapi strategi dasar saja tidak akan mengatasi keunggulan rumah. Untuk melakukan itu, Anda harus bertaruh jumlah yang lebih besar ketika peluangnya menguntungkan Anda, dan jumlah yang lebih kecil (atau tidak sama sekali) ketika peluangnya melawan Anda. Ini berarti bahwa beberapa bentuk penghitungan kartu adalah kebutuhan virtual. Juga pendekatan pengelolaan uang yang baik sangat penting. Sistem blackjack yang dapat Anda baca di situs web saya menggabungkan semua faktor ini.

Selamet menulis:

Saya punya pertanyaan strategi blackjack, bisakah Anda memberi tahu saya. Sebagai permulaan, saya bukan pemain blackjack, saya bahkan bukan penjudi. Menganalisis sistem roulette adalah hobi saya. Selama dua minggu terakhir saya telah menghentikan roulette, dan saya telah menjelajahi sistem blackjack, dan saya hanya Togel Singapore tahu strategi dasarnya. Masalahnya adalah…..

Di Malaysia, kasino yang menawarkan blackjack menggunakan tiga deck di sepatu pengocok otomatis, semua tangan yang rusak segera diganti ke dalam sepatu.

  1. Apakah strategi dasar masih bisa digunakan di sini?

 

  1. Karena pemain base ketiga masih dapat melakukan penghitungan kartu pada sebelas kartu yang pertama kali terbuka, ditambah pukulan apa pun dari pemain lain, strategi penghitungan kartu apa yang Anda rekomendasikan?

 

Satu-satunya orang lain yang saya tanyakan mengatakan saya harus keluar dari pikiran untuk bermain blackjack di sini sama sekali. Bisakah Anda menasihati saya?

Sang Guru menjawab:

Sepatu shuffle yang mengerikan ini adalah senjata terbaru yang digunakan kasino melawan pemain blackjack. Sejauh ini, mereka hanya diadili di beberapa kasino di Vegas sejauh yang saya tahu. Saya berharap pemain blackjack memiliki cukup akal untuk memberontak dan tidak memainkan hal-hal ini. Jika kasino yang menggunakan mereka mulai kehilangan bisnis blackjack mereka, mungkin mereka akan bangun dan menyingkirkan mereka.

Dengan segera mendaur ulang semua kartu yang dimainkan ke dalam shuffle shoe di mana kartu tersebut dikocok menggunakan generator angka acak, kartu tersebut secara efektif mengambil keuntungan apa pun yang mungkin diperoleh pemain karena setiap tangan yang dibagikan seperti tangan pertama yang keluar dari sepatu. Saya tahu tidak ada cara untuk mengalahkan permainan seperti itu, meskipun seseorang pada akhirnya mungkin memikirkan sesuatu. Satu-satunya cara untuk menyerang hal ini adalah dengan semacam strategi pengelolaan uang.

Jika Anda harus bermain melawan alat ini, tentu saja gunakan strategi dasar. Tetapi strategi dasar tidak akan membuat Anda menjadi pemenang, itu hanya akan membiarkan Anda bermain dalam satu setengah hingga dua persen dari rumah. Penghitungan kartu juga tidak akan membantu karena dengan 3 deck, bahkan duduk di base ke-3 Anda tidak akan dapat melihat kartu yang cukup untuk penghitungan untuk membantu dalam pengambilan keputusan. Selain itu, Anda sudah memasang taruhan sebelum melihat kartu sehingga penghitungan tidak akan membantu Anda sama sekali. Strategi terbaik untuk digunakan saat Anda melihat salah satu mesin ini adalah berlari ke arah yang berlawanan.

Kata-kata terakhir yang terkenal: Hardways dan Sbobet

Apa pendapat Anda tentang bertaruh Hard 8 di samping taruhan pass line jika poinnya adalah 6? Clint R.

Hei, Clint, kamu benar-benar ingin kehilangan uang hasil jerih payahmu dalam perlombaan seperti itu? Anda akan dengan taruhan keras, dan inilah alasannya. Taruhan garis lulus, tanpa peluang, memiliki keuntungan rumah sebesar 1,4%. Dengan taruhan $5 dan 50 keputusan bermain per jam, kerugian teoretis Anda (semua taruhan kalah seiring waktu) adalah $5 X 50 X 0,014, atau $3,50 per jam. Hiburan yang cukup murah bukan? Sebaliknya, taruhan enam atau delapan keras pada permainan omong kosong memiliki keuntungan rumah sebesar 9,1%. Kerusakan pada bankroll Anda adalah $5 X 50 X 0,091, atau $22,75 per jam. Jika Anda merasa perlu bertaruh kerabat 8 ​​dengan contoh 6 Anda, tempatkan 8 sebagai gantinya. Tepi rumah hanya 1,5%.

Mark yang terhormat,

Ketika “menempatkan” 4 pada permainan omong kosong, dealer merekomendasikan saya “membeli” taruhan sebagai gantinya. Dia mengatakan itu adalah taruhan yang lebih baik untuk pemain, bukan rumah. Apakah dia benar? Doni G.

Saat Anda “membeli” taruhan dalam dadu, Anda memberi komisi 5% kepada rumah agar peluang yang benar dibayarkan untuk taruhan itu. Jadi apakah dealernya benar? Ya, Anda mendapat informasi langsung, tetapi, pembaca kolom ini hanya bertaruh pada permainan omong kosong yang memiliki keunggulan kurang dari 2%. Taruhan beli pada 4 atau 10 hanya mengurangi keunggulan dari 6,67% menjadi 4%. Itu bukan 2%, teman, lebih seperti satu dolar melakukan 60 mph di zona 30.

Mark yang terhormat,

Ini mungkin tampak sepele, tetapi saya memiliki taruhan kecil pada terminologi omong kosong dengan salah satu teman judi saya. Ketika dadu “lulus”, bukankah itu berarti tujuh telah bergulir dan penembak berikutnya sekarang menguasai dadu? Harold T.

Secara teknis, Harold, dalam obrolan omong kosong, “lulus” TIDAK berarti bahwa dadu diteruskan ke pemain berikutnya setelah tujuh pertunjukan. Anda sebagian benar bahwa kontrol dadu Sbobet ditransfer (“pass” dalam cara berpikir Anda) ketika penembak “sevens out”, tetapi dalam ungkapan dadu, “pass” sebenarnya Idn play berarti sesuatu yang berbeda, dan dengan bangga ambigu. Ya lihat, dadu dikatakan “lulus” ketika penembak melempar angka 7 atau 11 pada lemparan keluar, dan dadu tidak “lulus” ketika penembak melempar angka 2, 3, atau 12. out roll adalah 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, atau 10, angka itu “menetapkan poin”, dan penembak terus melempar dadu sampai nomor poin digulirkan lagi, atau penembak “sevens out”. Jika penembak melempar poin sebelum melempar tujuh, dadu “lulus.” Jika penembak melempar angka 7, dadu tidak lolos, tetapi penembak kehilangan kendali atas dadu.

Saya memperingatkan Anda, Harold, itu ambigu, ya, tapi kemudian itu adalah pertanyaan Craps 102 tingkat perguruan tinggi, jadi apa yang bisa Anda harapkan?

Mark yang terhormat,

Bisakah pemain membatalkan peluangnya kapan saja? Juga, apakah peluang taruhan datang selalu Mati pada putaran keluar? Vic H.

Ya, Vic, untuk kedua pertanyaan Anda. Taruhan Odds dapat disebut “off” oleh pemain kapan saja, tetapi umumnya dibiarkan pada tata letak sampai taruhan ditentukan. Juga, taruhan peluang datang biasanya “tidak aktif” pada putaran keluar, kecuali jika dealer setuju, atas permintaan pemain, agar taruhan peluang “berfungsi.” Taruhan Odds yang “off” pada taruhan datang akan dikembalikan kepada pemain jika taruhan baris kalah pada roll keluar.

Perjudian memikirkan minggu ini: “Ada orang-orang yang percaya bahwa taruhan olahraga adalah aktivitas yang paling tidak berguna.” Dan Gordon

Best gaming TVs and Bitcoin Dice

All modern TVs are amazing compared to the standard-def sets we were using 10 years ago… at least for watching TV. Gaming, however, is a completely different story. All the fancy filters and post-processing wizardry that makes TV pictures look like you could clamber inside the TV and be in some glorious world, more colourful and crisp even than real life take time to apply. And the last thing you want when you’re gaming is any kind of control delay. So while any of these sets would be great for watching TV, these are the best sets on the market for playing games.

 

Sony KDL-50W829 Smart 3D 43-in Full HD TV

 

This is special. With an input lag of just 19ms (when in Game Mode), it’s one of the most responsive LED TVs you can get. Combine that with superb motion and colour reproduction, and this beauty is an absolute steal at $698 for the 50-inch version from Amazon US, or £589 from Amazon UK. At the time of writing, the UK site also has a 43-inch model for £499 (on the same link).

 

Samsung UE48J5100 Full HD 1080p 48 Inch TV (2015 Model)

 

There’s no point paying extra for ‘Smart TV’ gubbins when your games console can already do all that stuff anyway. So this Sammy is an absolute bargain, only £351.17 on Amazon UK (not US, sadly) at the time of writing for the 48-inch model, or an amazing £275.90 for the 40-inch version. Expect gorgeous picture quality, a fast refresh rate when in Game Mode, and super-slick picture quality on Film Mode for Blu-Rays.

 

Sony KD-65X9005B 65′ 4K ultra HD 800Hz

 

This is a 4K TV, which console gaming is yet to support. However, 1080p games will look great thanks to intelligent upscaling and a decent response rate of 33ms. And it’s 65-in, which is absolutely massive. It’ll be like you’re actually in the game. And just look at the speakers on it! This set has arguably the best integrated sound of any modern flat panel – perfect if you don’t have a stereo system, soundbar or surround sound setup. It costs a rather scary $2,674 from Amazon US or £2,500 from Amazon UK, but with a super-smooth refresh rate and 3D support, this really does pack in everything a gamer could need. And if you’re feeling particularly flush, there’s also an all-singing, all-dancing (figuratively) version for £4,999 from John Lewis.

 

Panasonic TX-40C300B 1080p Full HD LED 40-in TV with Freeview HD

 

This TV boasts an A+ energy rating, which is very welcome indeed. But as well as helping to save the environment, you’ll also get low-latency, full-HD gaming at a very nice price, namely £269 from Amazon UK. If you’re on a budget, you could do far worse.

 

LG 55EC930V Smart Curved 1080p Full HD OLED 55-in TV

 

This is a bit classy. It’s got a curved screen, for a start. Secondly, it’s OLED, which is the best kind of LED screen around due to its brightness to play Bitcoin Dice, contrast and refresh rate. Be warned, however, that 55 inches is quite large for a 1080p set so you might notice some pixelisation, but if you sit a decent distance from the picture, you will be treated to a fantastic gaming experience. Game mode delivers a 33ms response time too. Great stuff. It’s yours for a mere (cough) £1,279 from Amazon UK, of you can pick up the newer model for $1,997.99 from Amazon US.

 

Samsung UE32J5100 Full HD 1080p 32 inch LED TV

 

This TV may be comparatively small at 32-in, but it’s great for gaming, and supports full 1080p HD. It’s got a 200hz refresh rate for flicker-free movement, and 2 HDMI slots. If you’re on a budget and don’t plan to sit too far from the set, this is a great buy – especially as it’s down to just £199 from Amazon UK. That exact model isn’t available from Amazon US, but the very similar Samsung UN32J5003 is, and it’s only $199.

 

ASUS VE247H 24-in LED 1080p monitor

 

Finally, while it’s not technically a TV, this budget-price monitor is great for fast-reaction games like Call of Duty. With a 2ms response time and full HD 1080p display, this is perfect for a bedroom gaming setup. It costs just £109.57 from Amazon UK or $136.99 from Amazon US. It’s a bit on the small side, and the speakers are low quality so headphones or external speakers are advised, but in the right environment it’ll do the job nicely for a gamer.

Internet Judi Mpo Slot Gambling and Anti-Terrorist Laws

The events of September 11 certainly have changed things worldwide. And apparently, the Internet casino business is not immune from such changes. The attack has brought about sweeping new laws to deal with terrorism. Many are being drafted, many are being voted on, and the U.S. Congress has passed several

Somehow, Internet gambling has been thrown into Bill HR 3004 – the Financial Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001 – that now sits in the House of Representatives Finance Committee. [Full text of the bill can be read at the House of Representatives site.] Most of the bill is designed to go after money laundering operations and suspicious financial transactions that involve terrorism. Title 18 of the U.S. Criminal Code currently covers money laundering, but amendments were made to strengthen it considerably.

Two sections of this bill, sections 303 and 304, specifically deal with Internet gambling. That part of the bill is collectively known as the “Unlawful Internet Gambling Funding Act.”

Section 303 is titled “Prohibition on acceptance of any bank instrument for unlawful Internet gambling,” while section 304 covers I-gaming in foreign jurisdictions. Both elements deal with the business end of the industry and the wording seems to indicate that the gambler himself is not liable. (The bill discusses “acceptance” of wagers, not wagering or providing a wager.)

Reasons as to why this bill came about are understandable. In Judi Mpo Slot dealing with most of the people in this industry, there is a fair share of honest individuals out there that operate legitimate Internet casinos, providing fair odds for games and duly paying customers their winnings.

However, there is also a negative element that exists within the industry. These few rotten apples have likely attracted the attention of the U.S. government and brought about the proposed legislation.

It appears the bill that is currently before the House is extremely weak when it comes to stopping online casino gambling run by offshore operations. The bill says that the U.S. government will ask foreign governments to (1) ensure that the offshore casinos do not launder money and (2) stop Internet gambling in their country and not to take bets from Americans.

Governments will probably assist with the money laundering aspect, but simply asking isn’t going to stop online gaming in licensed jurisdictions. Revenue from I-gaming exceeds the entire GNP in some Caribbean nations. It’s like asking the United States to stop manufacturing automobiles.

Summarized below are the major points of the Internet gambling portion of the bill:

 

  • “Unlawful Internet gambling” is defined as the act of placing or transmitting a wager using the Internet where such a bet is illegal under state or federal law

 

  • No person or business can accept any form of payment in exchange for an unlawful online bet or wager. This includes credit cards, checks, wire or electronic money transfers, 3rd party intermediary (ex. another bank). Penalty for this is a maximum or a 5-year sentence and/or the fines under Title 18 of the US Code.

 

  • Financial Institutions are not liable for the transactions. (i.e., Visa is not liable for a credit card transaction that involves Internet gambling).

 

Also covered by the bill are other important points related to changes in financial crimes:

 

  • Any offshore bank account operated by a company with a branch/office in the U.S. (i.e., HSBC Cayman Islands) will be considered a U.S. account. Any funds can also be seized from the branch/office in the U.S.

 

  • Title 31 of the U.S. Code covers cash smuggling. Those that smuggle more than US$10,000 into the U.S. face up to a 5-year sentence, forfeiture of the money plus “any property traceable” to it.

 

  • New verification procedures will be instituted for opening a bank account. Falsifying one’s identity will be punishable by a 5-year maximum sentence.

 

  • A secure web site will be created within 6 months for dissemination and collection of financial information between financial institutions and the U.S. government.

 

  • Brokers and dealers with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) will have new regulations to report suspicious activity (i.e., short selling). The brokers and dealers, however, are not liable for failing to report such activity.

 

  • All of the above will be overseen by the Director of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, a position that was created in 1990 and is a division of the Treasury Department.

 

Although the bill is being debated at this time and is not law, it covers many different types of financial crimes. It will probably be changed significantly, but let’s hope that Sections 303 and 304 are deleted from the final version.

Don’t Tug On Superman’s Togel Cape

It is possible to get in trouble with gray market gambling, but you really have to work at it. One good way is to thumb your nose at the cops.

The latest to learn this sad lesson are three Internet gambling web sites: AlohaCasino.com, RoyalClubCasino.com, and 7Sultans.com. They were sued by New Jersey Attorney General’s divisions of Gaming Enforcement and Consumer Affairs.

The allegations in the complaint include everything from violating the State Constitution’s ban on gambling to the “unconscionable commercial practice” of advertising to minors with an “improper or unreliable age verification and/or no method to prevent underage gambling.”

But these operators’ real “crime” was posting their advertising on billboards across the street from Atlantic City’s licensed casinos.

The web site operators were not even the main targets of these legal actions. Sure, they were named as defendants. But the A.G. did not serve them with copies of the summons and complaint. In fact, he does not know who they are!

Paragraph six of the complaint entitled “State of New Jersey v. 7Sultans.com, Bob Fontain and John and Jane Doe,” reads, “Defendants John and Jane Doe are the owners and operators of Sultans who are unknown to Plaintiff at this time.” Suing Bob Fontain is not going to be much help. He registered the name, 7Sultans.com, but probably sold it. In any case, he is in South Africa, and is unlikely to come back to New Jersey to defend this suit.

So why did the A.G. have this suit filed against individuals he cannot serve or who live in foreign countries where they cannot be reached? And why these three Internet gambling sites, among the hundreds that take bets from New Jersey citizens?

He wanted those billboards taken down. And he succeeded.

The A.G.’s office issued a press release when the suits were filed. It proudly declared, “During the investigation, companies providing billboard advertising to AlohaCasino.com, RoyalClubCasino.com, and 7Sultans.com were contacted by the State. The billboards were subsequently removed.”

New Jersey does not have an explicit prohibition on Internet gambling, and going after any form of advertising is always tricky, because the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment right to free speech and free press become involved.

The A.G.’s lawyers spent hours researching the law, to come up with legal claims which might work, and hours more drafting these complaints. My guess is the billboards would have been ignored as being not worth the effort, if they had not been in Atlantic City.

But they were in Atlantic City, flaunting their legally questionable Togel gambling. The complaints about the billboards’ locations are carefully worded. Here’s an example: “a billboard on Schiff’s Central Pier, 1400-14 Boardwalk, across from St. James Place, Atlantic City, New Jersey, advertised Sultans’ illegal activity. Anyone walking east on the Boardwalk could easily view this billboard.”

Notice it does not say the obvious, that the billboards would be seen by anyone entering or leaving Atlantic City casinos licensed by the state.

This location was an open challenge to the casino regulators. It is never a good idea to dare law enforcement agents to come and get you, especially if you are not 100% legal.

Going after even blatantly illegal gambling is never a high priority, unless it appears that organized crime is involved, or the operator does something stupid.

The largest illegal sports betting ring in history was run by Ron “The Cigar” Sacco. Sacco made the mistake of going on CBS’s TV show “60 Minutes” to brag about his telephone bookie operation and how the federal government could not touch him.

The F.B.I. and U.S. Department of Justice took up his challenge. Sacco was a difficult target, because he was living abroad. But the feds put pressure on his host country, the Dominican Republic. The police of that country arrested him. The technical charges were violating local gambling laws, not American laws. The Dominican Republic, at that time, only allowed local betting, and Sacco was taking phone bets from the U.S.

Sacco was an American citizen. The Dominican Republic declared him to be an undesirable alien and deported him, right into the arms of the F.B.I. He was arrested and eventually charged with more major crimes, including money laundering.

The saddest case is Michael J. Stuebben. In 1985, before Louisiana had a State Lottery, Stuebben ran a profitable little business, selling Illinois State Lottery tickets, for a 50% markup, at restaurants and bars in New Orleans. Stuebben gained great notoriety in the city, even making the local T.V. news.

Unfortunately for Stuebben, the F.B.I. also watches T.V. He was charged with six counts, including the illegal mailing of lottery tickets and transporting wagering paraphernalia across a state line.

Stuebben was convicted on all six counts and his conviction was upheld by the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. For flaunting his sales of legal Illinois State Lottery tickets in Louisiana, Stuebben was sentenced to one year in federal prison. Which just goes to show that song-writer Jim Croce was right when he sang: “You don’t pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger.”

Spearmaster’s Best Togel Tips for Net Gamblers

Spearmaster is the operator of respected gambling portal Got2Bet, and a regular contributor on gambling message boards. We spoke with Spearmaster about the online casino business, and asked for his best tips for players.

You usually speak up for players’ rights on the WINNERonline boards. Why?

Funny you should ask that, since many players believe I represent the casinos. There’s a great need for balance in this industry. I think it’s important to protect players from unscrupulous casino operators. At the same time, there are obvious situations where the player is trying to take advantage of a situation – and in those cases I side with the casino. Without good casinos in the industry, there would be no industry, period – it’s a two-way street and everyone must work together if this industry is to grow strong.

What is people’s most common gripe?

Not getting paid their winnings, or in some cases not having Togel their deposits returned. Mostly it’s just timing – and sometimes it’s miscommunication.

Do you think the majority of operators run a legitimate site?

If you are dealing with major software providers like Boss Media, CryptoLogic, Microgaming and World Gaming, you should have no worries. There are many smaller operators that are fair, but there are also many small operators which operate dishonest casinos. My opinion is that one should generally stick to the larger software providers, or else to operations which are backed by reputable land-based operators.

Can the online gambling industry police itself or should some sort of outside group do that?

Portals can certainly help, and player organizations are also useful when everyone has a say. But if you’re talking about casino operators regulating themselves – forget it. Gaming jurisdictions vary as well – some are reasonably okay, others are very weak. If casino operators would be willing to fund a third-party mediator/regulator type organization, there could be some potential here.

What about the Online Players Association?

I think the OPA is a very good concept. There needs to be someone out there to look after the interests of the players. And the OPA has done that with a reasonable amount of success – but I think it’s time the OPA looked at a proper organization with a strong charter, registered someplace like the UK, and also looked at having a sound business plan developed to ensure that its focus remains on the player and not on fundraising or profit-making issues.

What are your best online gambling tips for new players?

There are a number of things:

  • Do your research. Visit various web sites to get an idea which casinos are reputable. Ask friends where they have played before. And visit the message boards.
  • Know the best strategies for game play. The Wizard of Odds and Gamemaster Online are the best sites for this type of information.
  • Read the terms and conditions before you deposit. Also, make sure you know the options available to you for depositing and cashing out.
  • Have fun – don’t gamble with money you cannot afford to lose. Treat gambling online as a form of entertainment – set a budget just as if you were going to Las Vegas for a few days.

What are your best tips for experienced players?

Here you go:

  • See my tips for new players – and take them seriously.
  • Don’t play just for the sake of a bonus – it’s not much different from going to Las Vegas and playing for the sake of comps like a free room, free food, etc. If you come out ahead after meeting the terms and conditions of the bonus, at least have the courtesy to give the casino a little more play. Otherwise, bonuses will definitely dry up in the future.
  • If you play regularly, stick strictly to your budget. Don’t chase after a losing streak (my biggest problem). There’s more to life than gambling online.
  • Take regular breaks – have a nap, watch TV, whatever. Doing this will ensure that when you do gamble online you have good concentration and are not tired.

 

 

 

Boss Media Launches Online IDN Slot Poker Software

 

 

Online poker is Boss Media’s latest big initiative, aimed at a target group with an estimated market of over 90 million poker players who together form a global multi-billion dollar industry. Internet poker has grown substantially in recent years, both as an amusement and among professional players playing for money.

 

The revenue model for the gaming operator is the same as in traditional poker rooms, with the “house” getting a share of the pot on each deal. This is known as the “rake” and provides risk-free revenue. This contrasts with, say, casino gaming or lotteries, in which the operator takes a risk. For a table of 6-8 players the poker room often earns over a hundred dollars per hour, and powered by the Internet it is possible to have hundreds of tables playing simultaneously at no extra cost to the operator.

 

For assistance Boss Media turned to one of the world’s foremost poker professionals, author and journalist Andy “the Poker Pundit” Glazer. Glazer not only helped Boss Media to create competitive software, but also helped drum up excitement among the international poker world in anticipation of the launch of TotalPoker.com.

 

“For millions of poker players, online IDN Slot poker will become what the stock exchange is to day-traders playing the financial markets. Any time I like I can go upstairs in my home in Los Angeles, turn on the computer and find 100 players who are ready to play for 5,000 dollars. Online poker has many advantages, which make it fun to play, quite apart from making it easier to keep a poker face – statistics, more tables to choose from, and you also avoid the cigarette smoke. Thanks to its existing customers, its portal Casino.com and its reputation in the sector, Boss Media is ideally placed to get off to a flying start”, says Andy Glazer.

 

“This is our third customer group and we will be continuing our policy of growth from our existing technical platform. In recent years the poker segment has been highly profitable for those achieving the critical mass that we hope to achieve, thanks in part to our existing licensees”, says Peter Bertilsson, President and CEO of Boss Media.

 

Boss Media, which develops turnkey systems for digital gaming, launched casino software for the Internet back in 1997 and expanded its product range to include bingo software at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas in September this year. Boss Media’s poker software is expected to become a lucrative complement to casino operations for many gaming operators. The poker initiative will be aimed at both Boss Media’s existing customers and new potential customers. Poker will also be offered to poker players direct via Boss Media’s poker portal www.totalpoker.com.
