In this column, I am going to talk a bit about table image. I am always amazed at how many pros pay little attention to how they come across at the table. Or, should I say, they misjudge the effects of how they come across at the table. Especially in the middle limits, I see many winning players convey an image of toughness. They wear dark glasses and baseball caps, and project a very cold demeanor. When I see this sort of thing, I wonder, “What are they trying to accomplish?” I’m not exactly sure, but I could take a few guesses. My first guess is that they have not clearly thought out the best image for themselves at the table. I suspect that many of them are attempting to convey a very tough, serious image in order to intimidate other players from calling them or playing back at them and taking their pots away. But if they gave it some thought, they would quickly realize that this sort of image will eventually attract just the type of players they don’t want to play with. Think about it. Suppose a recreational player is strolling by some poker tables and has a choice of games. The first table is filled with young, tough-looking players wearing baseball caps and dark glasses. Most of them have scowls on their faces, and few, if any, are laughing or talking. The table is somber and serious, and no one seems to be having …

Dunia sepakbola diwarnai banyak kejutan, tak heran jika dalam judi bola pun banyak hal-hal diluar prediksi. Bagaimanapun juga sebelum peluit panjang dibunyikan oleh wasit, gol-gol di menit-menit terakhir masih sangat mungkin terjadi. Bahkan kadang kala sebuah klub yang sepanjang pertandingan belum juga mampu mendominasi permainan dan ketinggalan cukup jauh dari lawannya, di menit-menit terakhir bisa saja menyamakan kedudukan. Bahkan mungkin malahan bisa membalik keadaan. Tapi justru di sinilah serunya menonton bola, apalagi jika disertai dengan judi bola karena benar-benar akan memacu adrenalin.
Judi Bola dan Hal Mengejutkan yang Terjadi
Saat hendak bermain judi bola, ketika yang bertanding raksasa Inggris Manchester United dengan klub yang tak begitu diunggulkan Blackburn Rovers kira-kira mana yang akan sobat jagokan? Hampir semua orang menjagokan Red Devils tentunya. Bahkan kita pun juga demikian karena di atas kertas Wayne Rooney dan kawan-kawan tampaknya bakal dengan mudah mengalahkan Rovers. Alhasil hampir semua bettor yang bertaruh pada pertandingan tersebut menjagokan Manchester United. Tapi di luar dugaan ternyata Rovers mampu menekuk setan merah. Hal mengejutkan lain karena pada laga tersebut ada seorang bettor Inggris yang tak mau disebut namanya, entah karena telah melakukan pertimbangan matang atau sekadar nekat, ia memasang taruhan dan memilih menjagokan tim underdog Rovers. Karena hanya dirinya saja yang menjagokan Rovers, praktis ia pun menang 1517 kali lipat dari angka yang dipertaruhkannya. Jadinya bettor yang hanya memasang 5 pouds tersebut sukses mendapatkan kemenangan sebesar 7.590 atau sebesar 108 juta rupiah. Ini adalah salah satu kejadian mengejutkan yang pernah terjadi dalam dunia judi bola.…
Playboy, Cryptologic expanded relationship by launching the first Playboy-branded Online Betting Web siteOn April 25, 2021 by Margarita Murphy
Canadian Online Betting software company CryptoLogic Inc. and Playboy Enterprises Inc. will expand their relationship by launching the first Playboy-branded online poker Web site, the companies said on Monday.
The exclusive three-year licensing deal means CryptoLogic will provide the only software used by the site, which will target players around the world except in the United States. No terms of the deal were disclosed.
The two companies already have a similar agreement in place to launch a new Playboy casino site. Playboy plans to cross-promote the gaming Web sites in its other properties, including print and online, the companies said.
“In CryptoLogic, Playboy has found an innovative and proven partner who can help us capitalize on the growth and excitement of online poker,” Playboy chief executive Christie Hefner said in a statement.
The poker site will use marketing similar to that of the casino site, offering Playboy merchandise, invitations to events hosted by the company and even trips to the “legendary” Playboy Mansion, the companies said.
CryptoLogic shares rose 58 cents, or about 3 percent, to $20.90 on Nasdaq on Monday morning. They were up 62 Canadian cents, at C$23.60, on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Mike Sexton and Vince van Patten help to put students on a fast track to the final table
World Poker Tour commentators, Mike Sexton and Vince van Patten have been named as instructors for the first WPT Boot Camp, alongside Alex “The Insider” Outhred.
Sexton and van Patten are familiar faces on the WPT, providing commentary for the TV show which has created a boom in the world of poker. All three of the instructors possess great insight into the workings of World Poker Tour tournaments, which will be used for a basis for instruction.
Steve Berman, Co-founder of the WPT Boot Camp says, “Mike, Vince and Alex have all played the game of poker and been witness to the skills of top players worldwide. Together they will provide the kind of coaching necessary to help amateur poker players reach and succeed at a WPT Final Table. They will be instrumental in selecting additional quality instructors for WPT BOOT CAMP.”
Mike Sexton is a 25 year poker-pro with numerous championships to his name, including The Legends of Poker and The L.A Classic. Sexton is also credited with the creation of The Tournament of Champions and the hugely popular Party Poker MillionBest Bets Today.
“I’m really looking forward to the WPT BOOT CAMP,” Sexton said. “And while high-stakes poker can be a pretty serious, stressful business, that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun with the folks we’re teaching. Poker is, after all, a game.”

When playing poker, it is important to understand that the poker hand you hold, how well you bet and how well you bluff will ultimately determine if you will win or lose that hand. Before you can play the game with competence, you will need to understand the card suits and ranks, as well as what makes a good poker hand.
Suits of Casino Extra cards for example are the clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades. This information is imperative to how you will play any of the hands that you are dealt. It is important also to understand the value of a given card. Cards increase in value according to their number or face, they will increase from 2 to 10 J, Q, K and A.
You will also need to learn what cards make a winning hand and what doesn’t make a play at all. The most common hands in order of importance are:
One pair (any matching set of numbers, regardless of suit)
Two pair (any 2 matching sets of numbers, regardless of suit)
Three of a kind (any 3 matching numbers, regardless of suit)
Straight (any 5 cards in numerical sequence, regardless of suit)
Flush (any 5 cards not in numerical order, of same suit)
Full house (any 3 of a kind and 2 of a kind in same hand, regardless of suit)
Four of a kind (any 4 matching set of numbers, regardless of suit)
Straight flush (any 5 numerical order …
Ever watched fidgety poker players doing tricks with stacks of poker chips and thought, “hey that’s cool in an annoying, pscyhe your opponent out kind of way”? Well with a bit of dexeterity, you could probably learn to do these tricks, too, and wow your friends and neighbors. Or at least your dog. Ruff. At least until you get into live tourneys and millions of screaming fans can see how cool you really are.
Most of these “chip tricks” are based on old coin sleight of hand dexterity exercises and tricks that were popular in the late 1970s – early 1980s. Nick Momrik has a site, Poker Chip Tricks, with a couple of dozen short videos – many submitted by readers – showing some of the more popular moves. There are also text tutorials as well, but I think the videos are generally clear enough to show you what you need to know.
If you can’t find the nice ($1 or more per) poker Casino Cbet chips to experiment with, you can also use silver dollars, half-dollars, or those “pug” (pog?) thingees kids were playing with in the 1990s. Quarters are a bit on the small side.
If you have the right power tools, or live next to Tim the Toolman Taylor, you could make your own poker chips. I’d say make chips with a 1/8th or 1/4 inch thickness, 1.5 inch diameter using a good quality dense wood. Sand the side down …
It seems Party Poker has a hit on its hands with its new “STEPS” series of sit n go tournaments. The STEPS tournaments are a series of one (or two) table sit n go tournaments which function like a series of satellites, with X number of players going into the next level of tournament.
For example, the one-table STEP one tournaments cost $11 (+ $1 juice). The top two finishers from this ten-person tournament go on to STEP two. You can buy directly into STEP two for $50 (+$5 juice), or qualify in via STEP one. The top two finishers from STEP two go on to STEP three, and so on.
Sit n go Toto HKtournaments have become one of the most popular features of online card rooms, and since the Party Poker started running the STEPS tournaments, they have become the most popular sit n gos by far. In fact, many Party players have found that since the advent of the STEPS tournaments, regular sit n gos, which used to take minutes to fill up, now take much longer.
Having played a number of these over the past few weeks…some observations about the STEPS series of sit n gos…
Firstly, depending on your playing style, you may want to consider whether the one table, or two table STEPS tourneys are for you. Its important to note that just like regular one table sit n gos at Party, the blinds go up every 10 hands on the one table. …
According to an article in IDD (Investment Dealers Digest), several top Wall Street investment banks have financial stakes in a number of international businesses that have online gambling ventures in their own operations. The article says this is due in large part to the fact the online gaming industry has grown to US$12 bln/yr as of 2005, and will likely exceed $24 mln in a few more years. This includes online poker games such as Texas Hold’em, amongst other games.
Throw in the fact that there have been over $50 bln in mergers and acquisitions in the industry since 2000 and various IPOs – both a source of fee revenue for investment Cheri Casino banks – and you can see why these American firms have ignored the US Department of Justice’s claim that online gambling in America is illegal.
Now, given that various US Deputy Assistant Attorney Generals have implied the possibility of organized crime and terrorist infiltration into online casinos, these big investment banks are enabling potentially dangerous people in order to make a buck. There’s also the “1961 Wire Act, which prohibits the transfer of betting information across state lines using wire communications, such as the telephone.”
There’s something wrong here, hypocrisy at the least.
As I understand it, US state law overrules federal laws. So the Washington state government can declare it illegal for Washington state citizens to write about online gambling, or for Washington newspapers to publish such articles. But …
With 10 or so players at a table, ace-nine off-suit isn’t a terrific starting hand. But when you don’t have many chips left, and you have good position (you bet after most of the other players have acted), it’s worth risking it all and hoping for the best. When Williams returned to his table, his first hand, remarkably, was ace-nine off-suit. He played it for all his chips and doubled his stack by winning the hand against former WSOP Judi Online24jam champion Dan Harrington. “[Luske] didn’t have to help me,” Williams says. “It didn’t help his chances to win it all by making me better, but he did, and I can’t thank him enough.”
“I was coaching him a little bit because he’s a friend of a friend, and he became my friend,” Luske says. “He was nervous, and I was just trying to calm him down a little. I felt sorry for him–not because of the way he plays. He plays good. But I felt sorry for him because he was so nervous. I felt sorry for him as a human. It was like taking someone to the dentist for the first time. You try to tell them it will be OK and make them feel better. But then he settled down and played really good.”
David’s mom, Shirley Williams, was there to witness it all. She had come to Vegas for the first few days of the tournament, planning to leave …
