toto sgp 2005 – July 6th, by Peter Costa

toto sgp 2005 – July 6th, by Peter CostaSeventeen of us returned for the climax of the $10,000 PLO event. I was in action on the first hand when the low chips (10K) moved all-in. On the BB, I had an easy call to make for another 6K with J-J-7-6. With a board of 3-3-8 and another three on the turn – my opponent was drawing dead on the river. – good start!

 

The second hand I played mystified me somewhat – having raised to12K with Ad-9d-Kh-8h -Todd Brunson decides to go all-in for another 17K with 9-J-Q-K (I think it was rainbow). Holding around 135K at the time – it was plainly obvious to Todd that there would be now way that I would be folding to the re-raise. Having played with Todd many times in the last year – I was surprised that he would commit with such a hand in that spot. He is normally far more selective as to when he goes all-in. Anyhow – of course I lost the hand (hence the moan) and was back to square one.

 

With no leeway – the next hand I played would prove crucial to my chances in winning this event. Having tip-toed my way through the first two days – each hand now needed major commitment. Well, I could not have asked for a better spot when I got involved with Vinnie Vinh. With a flop of Kd-Td-6s and holding Ks-Tc-Ad-4d – I was in great shape when Vinnie called my bet on the flop. His hand of Qd-Q-6d-5 – was drawing to just four outs. Another six hit and I was suddenly the low stack with just 7K. Even though I increased this to 66K – I could not complete the fight-back and got busted in 12th place.

 

It has been an incredible tough few weeks here at the Rio. Having made so many late nights – I am really looking forward to a few days rest before the big one.

 

Overall, I’m very pleased at how I have played. My four cashes (one final table) have gone some way in reflecting the focus and energy that I put into the game. And though I am disappointed that I bubbled close to several other cashes – I cannot have too many complaints. Anyway – we still have the biggie to come!

 

Until next time – play well, get lucky and give them no outs at all!

High Stakes Rail – Hansen gets upper hand on trex313

Over the past month, Gus Hansen and Hac Dang (trex313) have been battling heads up constantly. So far, the matches have been swinging vastly in the direction of Dang. However, yesterday, Hansen finally had the upper hand during the match and managed to pick up a solid win. Throughout the day, the two played many heads up sessions (mostly on Hansen’s own tables) and would contest a large number of impressive pots.

The first big pot of the day occurred in the early morning, right around 5 a.m. Eastern time. Dang raised from the button to $2,000 only to have Hansen repop him to $6,000. Dang called the raise and the flop came 8h 7d 9d. Hansen put out an $8,000 continuation bet, and Dang pushed it up behind him to $17k. Hansen wouldn’t be outdone though, as he raised it up again to $26k. Dang pushed all in over the top, leaving Hansen to call $25k more to show 4c Jc Ts Qc for the nut straight with redraws to a higher straight. Dang on the other hand showed Jd 7h 9s 9c for a set of nines and would need to pair up the board to bust Hansen’s straight. The turn came the 5h which didn’t help Dang out, and the river brought the Qs, leaving Hansen to pick up the $114k pot with his straight.

The two would then take a break but would return in the afternoon for some more heads up action. Dang once again raised to $2k from the button, and Hansen once again reraised to $6k. Dang called and the flop came 7s 6h Kc. Hansen led out with an $8k bet only to have Dang raise it up to $36k behind him. Hansen would then push all in and Dang would call the nearly $10k more for a showdown. Hansen flipped over Ks 5d 9d 8s for a straight wrap and top pair, while Dang had 4c 2s 5h 7h for middle pair and a lower straight wrap. Hansen was way ahead in the hand, but the 2h on the turn would give Dang two pair and Hansen would need to catch a card on the river to be saved. The Td then came on the river and Hansen would make his straight, taking down an impressive $103k pot.

Next hand it would be Hansen raising from the button to $2k and Dang calling from the big blind. The flop came 2s Th 8d and Dang would check to Hansen who bet out $3k. Dang however reraised once again to $11k which Hansen would call. The turn brought the As and Dang would now take the lead with a $26k bet. Hansen however would raise this and force Dang all in. After calling the raise, Dang showed Tc 8s 2d Kc for three pair (although only two can count). Hansen turned over 5d Kd Ac Td for three pair as well, however his were much higher than Dang’s. The 5c on the river would seal the deal for Hansen and he would pick up another $100k pot.

Shortly afterward, the two would play yet another pot worth over $100,000. Dang opened up the hand with a raise to $2k from the button, but Hansen reraised to $6k from the big blind. Dang would call the reraise and the flop would come 6d 8d 8s. Hansen led out on the flop with an $8k continuation bet, but Dang reraised that up to $36k. Not to be outdone, Hansen raised once again, pushing it up to $64k which forced Dang to call all in. Hansen turned over Ts Jc 9h Jh for an overpair and gutshot straight draw, while Dang showed 8h Ks 7h 2s for trip eights. The turn came the 2h which gave Dang a boat, and Hansen would need to catch one of the two remaining jacks in the deck to make a higher full house. The river was the 9s though and Dang’s boat would take down the $106k pot.

The final big hand between the two would end the session with a $150k pot. Dang raised from the button to $2k to open the hand and Hansen smooth called from the big blind. The flop came Qc 5d 5s and Hansen checked the action to the preflop raiser. Dang put out a $3k continuation bet, but Hansen would go for a checkraise, pushing it up to $10k. They would both then decide that it was as good of time as any to get the money in, and through a series of raises would do exactly that. With all the money in the middle, Hansen turned over Qd 5h 2d Kd for fives full of queens, while Dang showed 5c Jd Ac 3c and would need to catch an ace to make a higher full house. The turn came the 3h, giving Dang a useless full house, and the river brought the 9d which finished the hand. Hansen’s fives full of queens would be good enough to take the $153,595 from the pot and he would finally end a session way up on Dang.

Aksi Blackjack – Bab 9

Aksi Blackjack – Bab 9

Pintu lift terbuka ke lantai 30 Flamingo Hilton di Las Vegas. Seorang wanita berusia 60-an melangkah ke pintu masuk lift tetapi pemandangan di depannya menyebabkan dia berhenti di jalurnya dan mengeluarkan jeritan keras yang terkejut sekaligus ketakutan. Di sana tergeletak dalam genangan darah adalah tubuh seorang pria Asia berusia pertengahan 50-an.

– – – – – – – –

Steve, Sam, Mack, dan Jimmy duduk di salah satu restoran Flamingo Hilton. Pemandangan dari meja mereka di dekat jendela mengingatkan Steve pada gambar-gambar yang pernah dilihatnya tentang surga tropis. Ada sungai celoteh buatan manusia yang mengalir tepat di bawah jendela dan ikan tropis berwarna-warni yang menghuninya dengan mudah terlihat di air yang jernih. Tanaman yang indah dan rerumputan hijau yang rimbun menutupi topografi taman yang bergulung lembut. Dan seluruh adegan diselingi oleh flamingo merah muda hidup yang berdiri dengan satu kaki.

Steve telah membawa tim kembali ke Vegas kemarin dan baru tiba beberapa jam lebih awal dari Tuan Ciau. Waktunya tepat, pikir Steve, karena dia tahu sambutannya sudah hampir habis di kasino Reno. Tim tidak melakukan banyak hal, tetapi Steve, bermain sendiri, telah melakukannya dengan cukup baik dan sekarang tim tersebut berada dalam jarak $6.000 untuk menjadi seimbang. Steve berharap untuk memenangkan itu Keluaran sgp dan lebih banyak lagi malam ini.

Saat dia duduk di sana bersama Mack, Jimmy, dan Sam, Steve hampir tidak menyadari percakapan mereka. Pikirannya termakan oleh pertemuan yang akan mereka lakukan sebentar lagi dengan Pak Ciau. Steve melirik arlojinya dan menyadari bahwa jika Ciau cepat, dia seharusnya sudah berada di sini beberapa menit yang lalu. Tapi dia mungkin akan segera tiba, dan Steve tidak ragu bahwa dia akan menggendong Lisa.

Steve dan Lisa bertemu Mr. Ciau di bandara dan sejak dia melihat Lisa, dia, seperti kebanyakan pria, terpikat olehnya. Selama perjalanan limusin dari bandara, Ciau praktis mengabaikan Steve dan memusatkan seluruh perhatiannya pada Lisa yang memujinya dan mengajaknya mengobrol dengan ceria dan terkadang menggoda. Setibanya di Flamingo Hilton, di mana Ciau telah memesan sebuah suite, dia membujuk Lisa untuk bergabung dengannya untuk makan malam dan berjanji untuk bertemu Steve nanti untuk membicarakan bisnis. Tapi kemudian tidak pernah datang. Steve tidak melihat atau mendengar kabar dari Ciau atau Lisa lagi sepanjang sisa malam itu. Steve berasumsi bahwa Ciau memiliki tamu di suitenya tadi malam, dan itu membuatnya merasa mual di perutnya setiap kali memikirkannya.

Tetapi masalah yang lebih mendesak adalah laporannya kepada Pak Ciau tentang tim. Sejauh ini, Steve telah berhasil berbicara secara umum setiap kali Ciau bertanya tentang bagaimana kinerja tim, tetapi telah menjanjikannya rincian pukulan demi pukulan dalam pertemuan mereka hari ini. Tapi akhirnya berterus terang dengan Pak Ciau dan memberi tahu dia bahwa setelah hampir sebulan bermain mereka tidak menghasilkan satu sen pun, bahkan mereka turun beberapa ribu, juga menimbulkan perasaan mual di perutnya.

Saat itu Steve mendengar Jimmy mengumumkan, “Hei, ini Lisa; dan dia terlihat seperti baru saja melihat hantu.”

Steve berbalik dan melihat Lisa mendekati meja mereka dengan cepat. Sebenarnya dia hampir berlari dan saat dia mendekat, dia bisa melihat air mata mengalir di wajahnya. Steve berdiri dan Lisa melalui pelukannya di sekelilingnya terisak-isak.

“Lis, ada apa?” Steve bertanya, suaranya penuh dengan kekhawatiran.

“Oh Steve, M..M..Mr. Ciau,” dia tergagap mencoba mengeluarkan kata-kata.

“Bagaimana dengan Pak Ciau? Apakah dia menyakitimu?” Sekarang suara Steve mengandung kecurigaan dan kemarahan.

“Tidak, tidak seperti itu… dia, dia sudah mati.”

“Mati!?” Sekarang semua orang menimpali dengan tanggapan. Mack, Jimmy, dan Sam semua berbicara bersamaan dan melontarkan pertanyaan kepada Lisa.

“Tunggu kalian,” tuntut Steve saat dia mencoba mengendalikan situasi dan mendapatkan beberapa jawaban. “Lisa, tenanglah sekarang dan ceritakan apa yang terjadi.”

“Saya sedang dalam perjalanan ke lift untuk turun ke sini bertemu dengan kalian semua. Saya pikir Pak Ciau akan naik ke kamar dan menjemput saya, tetapi ketika dia tidak muncul dan sudah waktunya untuk pertemuan kami, saya pikir dia pasti datang langsung ke sini. Tetapi ketika saya sampai di dekat lift saya mendengar seorang wanita berteriak. Saya pikir mungkin dia dalam masalah jadi saya berlari untuk membantu. Dia berdiri di ambang pintu lift memegang pintu terbuka. Saya melihat ke dalam dan melihat Pak Ciau. Oh Steve, itu sangat mengerikan. Dia telah ditembak dan ada darah di sekelilingnya dan dia hanya berbaring di sudut lift dengan ekspresi terkejut di wajahnya. ” Lisa mulai terisak lagi.

Seribu pikiran berputar di benak Steve saat dia memeluk Lisa dan mencoba memutuskan apa yang harus dilakukan selanjutnya. Mungkinkah ini tindakan kekerasan acak? Steve dengan cepat membuang gagasan itu bahkan tidak layak dipertimbangkan. Tidak di hotel/kasino mewah seperti Flamingo.

“Hidup rendah macam apa orang ini?” tanya Sam. “Dan apa yang membuatmu melibatkan kami?!” Nada bicara Sam sekarang menuduh.

Steve menarik kursi dan mendudukkan Lisa agar tidak terlalu menarik perhatian kelompok mereka.

Membeli buku tidak akan membuat Anda menjadi pemenang Link Alternatif Sbobet instan

Membeli buku tidak akan membuat Anda menjadi pemenang Link Alternatif Sbobet instan

Saya belajar dengan susah payah bahwa hanya karena Anda membeli buku tentang perjudian (penghitungan kartu dalam kasus saya), itu tidak berarti Anda akan menang. Sebenarnya yang terjadi adalah sebaliknya. Sejauh ini, dengan menggunakan sistem penghitungan kartu dalam buku ini, saya telah kehilangan dua kali lipat dari biasanya. Barry C.

Pertanyaan untukmu, Barry. Apakah Anda benar-benar membaca dan mencerna seluruh buku? Saya mengatakan itu karena ada dua masalah yang melekat ketika Anda membeli publikasi apa pun tentang perjudian kasino. Keduanya bisa menghabiskan banyak uang. Pertama, Anda mungkin merasa bahwa Anda telah meningkatkan permainan Anda hanya dengan membeli buku dan mulai berjudi dengan benar-benar ditinggalkan. Anda akan terkejut betapa banyak penjudi membeli buku judi hanya untuk membangun kepercayaan diri tetapi tidak melakukan apa-apa selain membacanya secara ringkas. Selain itu, penghitungan kartu membutuhkan studi besar dan latihan bertahun-tahun, bukan bacaan ringan di Togel Singapore samping tempat tidur dan kemudian pergi untuk menaklukkan kasino. Mendapatkan konsep adalah satu hal; menjadi mahir adalah hal lain.

Juga, selalu ada kemungkinan Anda membeli buku yang buruk, diisi dengan informasi penghitungan kartu yang tidak akurat. Tapi, Barry, aku punya firasat bahwa itu yang pertama.

Mark yang terhormat,

Saya sedang duduk-duduk sambil memotret angin sepoi-sepoi dengan beberapa teman malam itu setelah mengunjungi salah satu kasino lokal. Saya berpikir bahwa bekerja di kasino untuk mendapatkan mantra mungkin merupakan hal yang menarik untuk dilakukan. Karena Anda pernah ke sana, melakukan itu, menurut Anda apa pekerjaan terbaik di kasino? (Memiliki satu tidak masuk hitungan). Mike K.

Apa yang awalnya seharusnya menjadi “mantra,” Mike, akhirnya menjadi karir 18 tahun.

Deskripsi pekerjaan karyawan kasino Link Alternatif Sbobet adalah menampilkan pertunjukan, 24 jam sehari, 365 hari setahun, dengan kualitas yang akan memberikan kenangan abadi bagi pelanggannya. Di atas adalah perspektif manajemen. Dari sudut pandang karyawan kasar, ini adalah pekerjaan di mana Anda memberi, atau mendapatkan, borok. Itu tidak berarti saya tidak memiliki waktu yang menyenangkan hampir setiap malam di parit. Tapi itu adalah persahabatan sesama karyawan dan olok-olok ruang istirahat yang menghasilkan gambol itu. Inilah yang paling saya rindukan tentang tugas perjudian 18 tahun saya, bukan lampu terang. Tetapi didorong oleh pertanyaan Anda untuk memberi Anda jawaban di atas papan, saya harus mengatakan kotak duduk di permainan omong kosong dengan banyak aksi, petaruh dua arah yang menyenangkan dan dealer crack-up.

Mark yang terhormat,

Apa lemparan terpanjang yang pernah Anda saksikan dalam permainan omong kosong? Jerry M.

Meskipun saya telah berpartisipasi dalam banyak lemparan 30 menit, terima kasih Tuhan, saya menyaksikan satu putaran dadu yang berlangsung selama satu jam 25 menit. Namun percaya atau tidak, Jerry, tidak ada, dan maksud saya tidak ada, menghasilkan uang yang signifikan.

Saya sedang bertinju dalam permainan omong kosong ketika sekelompok mahasiswa yang menjengkelkan dan tahu segalanya — mengambil alih meja omong kosong. Permainan mereka terbatas pada meja minimal $1, taruhan hardway berlimpah, dengan taruhan garis lulus sesekali dan tanpa peluang. Dealer memohon kepada mereka saat gulungan berkembang untuk membuka permainan mereka, tetapi tidak berhasil. Mereka tahu apa yang mereka lakukan dan mereka tidak membutuhkan dealer kosong yang memberi tahu mereka cara bermain dadu. Yang mereka pedulikan hanyalah mengeluarkan sebanyak mungkin minuman gratis dari kasino.

Kejadian ini membawa saya ke poin penting. Gulungan yang panjang dan diperpanjang tidak selalu berarti Anda akan berakhir di Craps Hall of Fame. Ini adalah “kualitas” dari gulungan yang menentukan apakah Anda akan memiliki momen surgawi. Jika angka Anda bergulir, permainan Anda menyebar di tata letak (contoh: taruhan tambahan dengan peluang), dan Anda semakin bertaruh lebih banyak, Anda melihat potensi untuk gulungan seumur hidup. Jika tidak, pengalaman itu tidak lebih dari isapan jempol dari imajinasi Anda.

Perjudian memikirkan minggu ini: “Saya sekarang tenang dalam keuangan saya dan diisi ulang di lemari saya.” – Andrew Jackson setelah memenangkan pacuan kuda.

Setiap pertanyaan yang terkait dengan perjudian Sbobet adalah permainan yang adil

Setiap pertanyaan yang terkait dengan perjudian Sbobet adalah permainan yang adil

Saya menemukan kolom Anda sangat menarik, tetapi saya harus mengakui, saya tidak pergi ke kasino tetapi setahun sekali dengan putri saya pada hari ulang tahun saya. Saya sesekali mencoba-coba dengan lotere California dan bingo Rabu malam. Terima kasih telah menulis tidak hanya tentang perjudian kasino, tetapi juga tentang beberapa penawaran lain yang berhubungan dengan perjudian. Dorris M.

Selama beberapa tahun terakhir, saya telah menerima banyak surat dari pembaca seperti Anda yang tidak berjudi sama sekali. Salah satu editor surat kabar yang membawa Deal Me In mengatakan kepada saya bahwa setengah dari suratnya (Deal) datang dari pembaca yang belum pernah menginjakkan kaki di kasino. Mereka menikmati kolom tidak hanya untuk informasi orang dalam – untuk dosa-dosa saya, saya menghabiskan 18 tahun penebusan dosa saya bekerja di sendi penggilingan ini – tetapi juga karena semua pertanyaan perjudian, baik teknis, sosial, filosofis atau apa prasmanan favorit saya di Las Vegas, adalah terbuka untuk diskusi di Q&A; forum. Jadi kadang-kadang, saya akan menjawab pertanyaan tentang lotere, undian, bingo, poker meja dapur, dan bahkan permainan kesempatan karnaval.

Selama uang hasil jerih payah Anda berisiko, tidak ada pertanyaan tentang segala bentuk perjudian yang sepele bagi saya. Mudah-mudahan, Doris, Deal Me In adalah Bintang Utara yang menunjukkan jalan permainan yang Anda mainkan.

Mark yang terhormat,

Saya membaca di mana Mike Ditka dilarang dari kasino selama tiga bulan karena melemparkan cerutu ke bos pit. Bos pit membuat keputusan yang tidak menguntungkan ketika sebuah dadu dikokang di atas tumpukan chip. Apa yang Anda ambil? Scott S.

Dalam permainan hiruk pikuk seperti dadu, seorang petinju perlu membuat keputusan sepersekian detik yang tidak selalu menguntungkan Poker uang asli pemain. Dalam kasus Ditka, saya memvisualisasikan salah satu dadu condong ke angka empat, cocok dengan tiga di kubus saudara, dan langsung Anda memiliki tujuh-out, line-away. Tanpa berada di sana dan mengetahui semua fakta, saya percaya penilaian yang dibuat petinju saat menelepon. Dia, atau dia, telah membuat ratusan panggilan serupa sebelumnya, dan meskipun tidak selalu menguntungkan mantan pemain dan pelatih NFL, kemungkinan besar itu adalah keputusan yang benar.

Masalah lainnya adalah perilaku pemain yang tidak tertib. Untuk itu, saya setuju dengan Nick si Yunani, yang mengatakan tentang pecundang yang sakit; “Satu-satunya perbedaan antara pemenang dan pecundang adalah – karakter.” Ditka pantas mendapatkan heave-ho!

Mark yang terhormat,

Apakah ada waktu tertentu yang harus Anda hindari dari mesin Sbobet yang dingin? Saya bertanya karena sering kali saya menghabiskan terlalu banyak waktu di mesin slot, bahkan tidak tahu berapa banyak yang telah saya habiskan. Joyce G.

Jika Anda melempar katak ke dalam panci berisi air mendidih, katak itu akan langsung melompat keluar. Namun, jika Anda memasukkannya ke dalam panci berisi air dingin dan perlahan-lahan menaikkan suhu ke titik didih, katak itu tanpa curiga akan menemui ajalnya yang fatal. Seperti yang ditunjukkan oleh metafora, kita manusia katak dapat memasak diri kita sendiri sampai mati di kasino, terlalu lama berkeliaran di mesin slot dan permainan meja, menunggu keberuntungan kita berputar.

Saya meminta Anda untuk melompat keluar dari panci BUKAN karena mesin dingin. Saya telah menjelaskan di kolom sebelumnya bahwa setiap putaran pada mesin slot adalah peristiwa independen berdasarkan generator angka acak (RNG). Saya meminta Anda untuk melompat keluar karena saya ingin Anda mengembangkan disiplin dan kesadaran fiskal dari uang Anda saat Anda bermain. Setelah Anda kehilangan persentase tertentu dari modal bermain Anda, seperti lima persen, atau lima tarikan tanpa pengembalian, belajarlah untuk menjauh. Dengan begitu, Joyce, kamu akan lebih pintar dari katak.

Perjudian memikirkan minggu ini: “Dapat dikatakan bahwa naluri manusia untuk berjudi adalah satu-satunya alasan dia masih bukan monyet di atas pohon.” – Mario Puzo, Di Dalam Las Vegas

26 Pertandingan, Enam Tim Berdiri dan Bandar Togel Hongkong

26 Pertandingan, Enam Tim Berdiri dan Bandar Togel Hongkong

Sistem ini memiliki kritik, tetapi babak play-off memberi musim reguler K-League hari terakhir untuk diingat. Enam tim dari 14 yang bertarung di penentuan kejuaraan mungkin memiliki persentase yang tinggi, tetapi tanpa pertandingan, kami hanya akan disuguhi pemandangan Seongnam yang melangkah ke gelar lain.

Ini sebagian kesalahan Seongnam bahwa sistem itu diinstal ulang. Setelah musim 2003 di mana klub Provinsi Gyeonggi memenangkan liga dengan 18 poin, 2004 melihat kelahiran kembali play-off. Tiga musim berikutnya melihat empat tim bertarung, tetapi K-League memperpanjangnya menjadi enam pada awal 2007.

Seongnam selesai pertama lagi dan sementara tidak ada trofi, mereka menerima hadiah hiburan – klub hanya akan menghadapi satu lawan dalam bentrokan dua kaki pada bulan November. Suwon Samsung Bluewings finis empat poin di belakang di urutan kedua dan dijamin semifinal satu leg di kandang pada 31 Oktober. Lawan Suwon untuk pertandingan itu adalah tim yang muncul dari pertarungan antara mereka yang finis ketiga hingga keenam.

Memasuki hari terakhir musim reguler, dua dari tempat itu sudah diklaim. Gyeongnam FC dan Ulsan Hyundai Horang-I dijamin finis ketiga dan keempat. Hanya dua tempat yang diperebutkan – kelima dan keenam.

Dari lima tim yang masih memiliki peluang, FC Seoul Togel hk adalah yang terbaik ditempatkan – di urutan kelima tepatnya, unggul tiga poin dari ketujuh dan hanya membutuhkan satu poin di Daegu FC. Hasil seperti itu tampaknya berada dalam jangkauan Seoul karena pasukan Senol Gunes telah bermain imbang 13 kali dari 25 pertandingan sebelumnya.

Pohang Steelers menempati urutan keenam dan tahu bahwa kemenangan di kandang melawan sesama pemburu play-off Incheon United sudah cukup. Incheon berada di kapal yang sama dengan Warga Daejeon dan Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors; klub yang perlu menang dan hasil lainnya agar sesuai keinginan mereka.

Kekalahan untuk Seoul diperlukan dan itulah yang terjadi. Striker Brasil Luisinho mencetak satu-satunya gol dalam pertandingan itu pada menit ke-34 di Stadion Piala Dunia Daegu.

Pohang mendapatkan tiga poin mereka dengan kemenangan 3-2 untuk mengklaim tempat play-off mereka dalam permainan yang tidak sedekat yang disarankan oleh skor. Hasil itu mengakhiri mimpi Incheon dan musim Jeonbuk. Juara Asia berjuang untuk menang 2-1 di kandang atas klub terbawah Gwangju Sangmu. Itu adalah kemenangan pertama Jeonbuk dalam sembilan pertandingan, tetapi sudah terlambat.

Itu meninggalkan Warga Daejeon. Pemenang Piala FA Bandar Togel Hongkong 2001 itu tidak terlihat seperti kandidat play-off di akhir paruh pertama musim, mengumpulkan 13 poin dari 13 pertandingan pertama. Selama musim panas, pelatih Choi Yoon-kyum memukul kepala asistennya dengan gelas bir selama sesi minum. Tindakan seperti itu bukanlah pelanggaran otomatis di Korea dan untuk sementara waktu, Choi tampak seperti bertahan, didukung oleh penggemar serta sahabat karibnya. Orang nomor dua segera berubah pikiran dan Choi berganti pekerjaan,

Kim Ho masuk. Piala Dunia 1994 dan mantan pelatih Suwon lebih seperti pria soju dan juga mengubah beberapa tradisi lain di Daejeon. Di paruh pertama musim, Citizen telah bermain imbang tujuh dari 13 pertandingan tetapi konsep revolusioner Kim bahwa kemenangan tiga kali lebih baik daripada hasil imbang. Dari Agustus, Daejeon kalah dalam lima pertandingan (lebih banyak dari kekalahannya di babak pertama) tetapi memenangkan delapan pertandingan lainnya untuk mengumpulkan 24 poin..

Namun itu adalah hal yang sangat dekat. Meskipun penampilan Daejeon meningkat, hanya empat kemenangan beruntun yang membuat mereka mendapat peluang di hari terakhir dan dengan rekor bagus di kandang melawan Suwon, para penggemar tuan rumah percaya diri.

Mereka sangat gembira ketika striker Brasil Shuba mencetak satu-satunya gol pertandingan di babak kedua. Daejeon seharusnya mencetak lebih banyak tetapi penyelesaiannya tidak terlalu menegangkan. Harapan tipis Suwon untuk menangkap Seongnam berarti bahwa saat pertandingan hampir berakhir, Bluewings tidak terlalu khawatir tentang mencetak gol yang akan membawa rival Seoul ke babak playoff.

Tanggapan Daejeon pada akhirnya sangat emosional tetapi tim memiliki sedikit waktu untuk merayakannya. Mereka memiliki pertandingan di Ulsan pada hari Minggu, sehari setelah Gyeongnam menjamu Pohang. Kedua pemenang akan saling berhadapan satu sama lain seminggu kemudian untuk memperebutkan hak menghadapi Suwon.

Lightning strikes twice – on the same Pengeluaran Sgp day!

Lightning strikes twice – on the same Pengeluaran Sgp day!

They say lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place. Or the same person. But on March 6, Betty M. did just that when she won two successive CashSplash jackpots!

Betty’s first strike was at the Fatcatz Casino, where she hit a jackpot of $35,497.35. Picture the scene – three CashSplash symbols line up on her monitor, she screams for joy and wakes up the neighbors, then goes to the market to buy a bottle of Dom Perignon to celebrate her win – all the while Fatcatz and Microgaming officials are verifying the win.

 

She gets back home, pops the cork (hopefully with lots of friends and family around)… and says “What the heck, let’s spend a bit more of that hard-earned jackpot and give someone else a chance to have some excitement…”

 

So she cashes out her win at Fatcatz, dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s, making sure all the details are taken care of, and logs out. Then she decides to wind down a bit, so she kicks up the Home Casino software and starts playing a little more CashSplash, when…

 

Ching… ching… CHING!

 

Three CashSplash symbols lined up AGAIN!

 

Betty didn’t give anyone a chance to put any money back into the CashSplash… her second win was for $5,777.28, probably less than an hour after she won her first jackpot! No rushing to the market… she hasn’t finished her first glass of champagne!

 

Now the story is maybe a figment of my imagination, but the two jackpots are not. Not unless two different Betty M. people exist… or else Microgaming’s CashSplash page has a mistake… either way I’d say the chances are far less than being struck by lightning!

 

Hey Betty! Congratulations… but let’s share the wealth, shall we? I’ll settle for a glass of Dom.

 

Red Herrings spotted – too good to be true?

As I prepare tons of new content for this wonderful new site, I’ve been scouring the net looking at plenty of sites, whether they be competition, friends, casinos, sportsbooks – whatever – anything related to online gambling I have probably already seen.

 

I had noticed one of the sites which you might call a competitor – they don’t know of us yet – which does reviews of casinos and updates its top ten on a monthly basis. A week ago I skimmed it and filed it for further reference, but today one of my colleagues sent me a link back to this site, so I decided what the hey… let’s go have a closer look at it.

 

And guess what I found – not one, but two red Pengeluaran Sgp herrings. Enough to make people think that they are being impartial in the reviews, or so they think – but the other 8 in the top 10 are either owned by or managed by the same company! I find it extremely hard to believe that that particular 8, all running Microgaming software, are head and shoulders above the others (one of the 2 remaining also happens to run Microgaming).

 

Could it be that this competitor’s review site is being run by the same company that is running the casinos, or is there something else we should know?

 

I’m going to keep quiet… for now. You guys figure out for yourselves which site I’m talking about. Maybe I’m wrong – maybe I’m imagining things. But it just so happens that I am trying to gather comprehensive information on each and every Microgaming casino in operation today so it’s a big red FLAG to me.

 

I’m not going to deny that if you click on my links and send some money to that casino I might benefit from it – but don’t be misled – not all of my links are affiliated. Some – in fact most – carry an identifier just because I want that casino to know who is sending them visitors.

 

I am currently carrying no sponsored advertising. I am only affiliated with two casino programs so far – Casino Coins and River Belle/Lucky Nugget. And despite all of this I promise you that my reviews will be fair and honest to the best of my ability – because that’s what you, the gambler, deserves.

 

Beware other reviews! Just as a matter of note, the casinos reviewed by the competition are probably all good casinos – I’ve only visited two of them personally up to now (believe it or not, the two which are NOT linked together), but I don’t like being led into what I perceive to be a web of deceit. You are hereby warned!

Emotional Mistakes that every gambler should avoid while betting on sports

Sports betting can be a good pastime for many sports fan. There are many who make good money in sports betting. But what seems glossy on top might not necessary be the equally glossy inside. There are many factors which we should consider while betting and that is the risk of incurring huge loss when we lose the bet. Sports is a game where one cannot be sure shot about the result, one can only predict but cannot always be hundred percent sure that their prediction regarding the game would always be right. It’s true that risk forms the crux of sports betting, however one can reduce the percentage of risk if they avoid some common mistakes while betting in sports.

The commonly seen emotional mistakes that can be avoided by people who bet on sports

A sport betting is a combination of risk and strategy, and if you understand and master these strategies, you can increase your chance of winning. However if you completely ignore the risk factor then you might end up losing your bet. Often people understand these factors but they think emotionally instead of thinking in a realistic way. They either get over confident or either they get too aggressive and bet, this might become a huge gambling mistake and you might lose your valuable money and your confidence both, so avoid making the mistake of getting over emotional while betting on sports. Some people bet while they are drunk, this again is huge risk, because often we are not in our senses when we are under strong influence of alcohol. So instead stay alert and avoid betting when you have hangover. While betting do not go for your favorite because the game goes by performance and not by teams. Two good teams can raise the standard of the game but end of the day there is only one winner, so avoid favoritism while betting. If you plan to bet on sports through internet sites, go for trusted sites like M88, to avoid getting victimized to various online gambling related frauds and scams.

Status of Casino Malaysia Gambling Laws in the U.S.

Status of Casino Malaysia Gambling Laws in the U.S.

The following are American jurisdictions having recent activity concerning legal gambling.

* – States and territories with gaming devices are marked with an asterisk: *

! – States with at least one casino (defined as having both banking card games and slot-like machines) are marked with an exclamation point: !

!* INDIANA – Legislative leaders may approve a voter referendum, over the opposition of Gov. Bob Taft, to let seven of Ohio’s horse racing tracks install video gaming machines. Earlier, the Senate Rules Committee killed a bill, approved by the House, which would have allowed riverboats to operate casinos while docked, and would also have authorized electronic pull-tab machines (slot machines which cash out with paper tickets) at Hoosier Park racetrack and its OTBs. Riverboat casinos opened in 1995, after the State Supreme Court held the law constitutional. The Legislature authorized 11, but the federal government will not allow a boat on Patoka Lake. The ten riverboat casinos took in $1.7 billion in 2000. Boats on the Ohio River can only move a few feet, for fear of trespassing into Kentucky. Riverboat admission charges help subsidize the state’s horse racing industry. The Pokagon band of Potawatomi Indians is trying to open a land-based casino in north-central Indiana, and Indiana Legislative Insight reports the Miami Indians have a “fairly low-key effort” to put a casino in western Indiana. A study released in 1999 found gambling, including the heavily-taxed casinos, are the state’s fifth largest source of revenue. The Senate voted to allow candidates to accept contributions from casino owners, but the House of Representatives killed it by a 2 to 1 vote.

!* IOWA – Slots are legal at one horse and two dog tracks, in three Indian casinos and on ten riverboat casinos — gambling is the state’s fourth largest source of income. Racinos pay a 30% tax, which is set to rise to 36%; riverboat casinos pay 20%. Gross gaming revenue is close to $1 billion a year. The Racing and Gaming Commission passed regulations which prohibited casinos from expanding, banned credit card cash advances and barred new licenses. Gov. Vilsack fired most of the Commissioners for going beyond the authority delegated them by the Legislature. But the Senate and House could not agree on what changes should be made, so the governor let the regulations stand. Suit was filed to keep the ATMs, and a court ruled the Commission had exceeded its authority. Rules are being promulgated to allow ATMs in non-gaming areas. The Senate killed a proposal for a five-year moratorium, which would have been like money from heaven for existing operators. Only the State Lottery, not charities, can sell pull-tabs.

!* KANSAS – A bill to allow VLTs at dog and horse tracks will be reintroduced, again. Tribes operate four casinos, under compacts, at White Cloud, Mayetta, Horton and Powhattan. Although the compacts were reported to exclude electronic gaming devices, tribal casinos have slots and video poker machines, as well as table games. The Casino Malaysia Delaware Tribe, forcibly removed to Oklahoma around 1868 but with no reservation, wants to move back to Lawrence and open a casino. In a highly questionable move, the U.S. Dept. of Interior approved a casino for the Miami Tribe, despite vocal opposition from Gov. Graves. The state has filed suit. Camptown Greyhound Park closed, again; but if slots for tracks is approved by the 2002 legislature, it may reopen. In Summer 2000, Greyhound Park in Wichita opened a drive-through betting window. The Legislature is expected to renew the State Lottery in 2001, which would otherwise expire in 2002.
