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

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

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

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

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

Of course, the little wizards almost …

The World’s Only UFABET Gambling Court

UFABET

Is compulsive gambling a disease? The prevailing view in the law is that gambling is a vice. Compulsive gamblers who destroy their lives may be pitied, but they are punished for their moral weakness, not treated. In this view, telling judges or juries that defendants committed crimes to feed their gambling habits is worse than useless. Not only is it not a legal excuse, but also now prosecutors can point to a motive.

 

In 1980, the well-settled law making problem gamblers liable for their crimes was rocked by a declaration from the medical world. The American Psychiatric Association (APA) declared, “pathological gambling” to be an official “mental disorder.” The disorder was published, with a list of recognizable symptoms, in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM).

 

The APA is quick to point out that the DSM is designed for diagnosis and treatment only and is not intended to have any legal importance. But, defense lawyers are under a duty to raise every defense, including the fact that the leading medical association in the field says that a person who has a gambling problem is not morally weak, but instead suffers from a disease and the law does not punish people for being ill.

 

What should the law do with a compulsive UFABET gambler who admits stealing to get the money to gamble? In practice, the overwhelming majority of judges continue to treat the compulsive gamblers accused of committing crimes, as if they have no problems, other than being crooks. This usually means sentencing them to jail. This might give some feelings of “just desserts,” but actually helps no one. Imprisoned compulsive gamblers cannot earn enough money to repay their victims; they will not receive treatment; but they will have lots of opportunities to gamble.

ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล Review of Blackjack Essays

ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล

Mason Malmuth is one of the most recognizable names in gambling for writing an incredible volume of information on applying skill to casino games. His book, Blackjack Essays, generally represents some of his earliest forays as an author and serves as a compendium of most of his contributions to the game of blackjack.

There are about 70 essays in this book dealing with a wide range of topics. Almost every one represented a new area of inquiry when it was written. Some now are well integrated into the corpus of general blackjack knowledge, some have been extended and elaborated on in other books, some represent the first foray into a still largely unexplored area, and some are still largely the last word on a particular topic.

The earliest essays in this book cover a concept Malmuth calls, “Card Domination”, which these days is more commonly called Shuffle Tracking. This is still a good introduction to the topic, although the Blackjack Forum series on Shuffle Tracking which appeared in about 1994 is far more thorough. However, I’ve recently seen shuffles which are trackable using Malmuth’s methods.

Another topic Malmuth explores in great depth is that of bankroll requirements or “Gambler’s Ruin”. Malmuth does a great job here of discussing why early blackjack literary figures probably underestimated the size of the fluctuations they would face. Of course, there was still room to explore these ideas in more detail in, for example, Blackjack Attack by Don Schlesinger. However, Malmuth’s writings on this topic are still valuable today, they’re just no longer the last word.

Malmuth provides what is probably the best currently in print description of Front Loading, good information on how to improve the profitability of ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล casino trips, and, a Malmuth trademark, a thorough debunking of several mistaken blackjack myths …

St. Andrews Student Claim UK Student Poker Crown

situs poker online terpercaya

Almost 260 students descended on St. Andrews in early April to take part in the biggest poker tournament ever held in the UK — the inaugural UK Student Poker Championships in association with Betfred.com. The tournament, held in the Students Union of St. Andrews University, was the brainchild of Christian Harris, a fourth-year French student, who approached Betfred for financial investment and logistical help in order to get the tournament off the ground.

Competitors were playing no-limit Texas hold’em, the popular poker game that is taking the online world by storm, and tickets to the event were worth £30 each, making a total cash prize pool of £7,770. On top of this cash pool, the winner would also receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the World Series of Poker — to be held in Las Vegas in July— courtesy of Betfred.com. A ticket for this event alone is worth $10,000!

 

Held over two days, the starting field of 259 was whittled down to just 30 by the end of day one, with Nikolas Spathis from Aberdeen University ahead in the chip count.

All qualifiers for the second, and final, day were guaranteed a prize, but play was understandably cagey as all players wanted to make it to the prestigious top table of 10 and into the big money.

 

By late afternoon on Sunday, there were just three left battling for the trophy: Darius Nikbin, who’d travelled up from Imperial College in London; Dhruv Doshi, from Warwick; and Calum MacNicol from St. Andrews. With a huge proportion of the chips sitting with Calum, the others dug deep and won a few hands, but it was to no avail. Calum claimed the title and prize money.

Three Steps to a Virus-free Life: Situs Judi Online Gambling

Situs Judi Online

Casino Tech

A lot has been said about the whole computer virus thing, especially lately, but what’s the real story? Well, I’ve been through the viral trenches and am here to tell all.

A virus is basically a miniature program that runs on your computer and does bad things. Two of the biggest questions about viruses (as far as we’re concerned) are: ‘Can I get one from a casino site or download?’ and ‘How can I prevent them?’

Let’s begin at the beginning. You can get a computer virus from any of the following sources: e-mail; downloaded software; software updates; ICQ; a web page; any document, program or application that you accept from your local network; any disk, diskette, tape, cartridge or other media you stick in your computer; or any software you install.

In other words, almost anything at any time.

For the Internet gambling community, that means any Situs Judi Online casino software, software update, casino web site, newsletter, or e-mail from a casino is a potential virus threat.

Scared? Don’t be, because the vast majority of those potential threats are only that – potential. With a little care, caution, and paranoia you can stay virus free.

Step one to a virus-free life is going to cost you a bit: get a good virus scanning program. As far as I’m concerned, that means getting Norton Anti-Virus (the 2002 Edition is the best so far), setting it to start automatically when you boot up your machine, telling it to perform “Auto-Scan” at startup, and enabling it to watch both your incoming and outgoing e-mail.

Personally, I run two virus scanners on my computers: Norton for e-mail and web pages, and another called AVP by Kaspersky Labs for larger system scans. Both are stable, powerful, reliable and serious anti-virus tools …

Homeland Agen Domino99 Controversy Why Croatia’s Josip Simunic probably isn’t a Nazi

Agen Domino99

The Croatian international defender Josip “Joe” Simunic is not losing hope in returning to action for the national team in time to take part in the forthcoming World Cup.

 

The Australian-born player was hit with a ten match ban by FIFA following his allegedly pro-Nazi outburst last November after Croatia’s 2-0 win over Iceland in a World Cup qualifier. Simunic was punished for leading the crowd at Maksimir Stadium in Zagreb in a chant with Nazi connotations.

 

After the match that secured Croatia’s place at the World Cup, the supremely popular footballer took a microphone from an announcer and shouted “za dom” (for the homeland), to which thousands of fans responded “spremni” (ready).

 

The ban, if not overturned on appeal, will most likely put an end to a distinguished international career of the 36-year old after 105 caps for the Vatreni (Fiery Ones), as the Croatian national team is known.

 

The salute “for the homeland ready” was used by the Agen Domino99 infamous Ustashe (Insurgents), the extreme right wing organization which ruled Croatia from 1941 until the end of the Second World War in May of 1945.

 

The full form of the salute during World War 2, in which Croatia was a minor member of the Axis Powers, read “for the Leader and the homeland ready”, the Leader (equivalent to the German “Fuhrer”) being the Croatian pro-Nazi dictator Ante Pavelic.

 

Since the Ustashe committed countless well-documented atrocities against the Serbs, Jews, Gypsies and even many left-leaning Croats, any use of symbols reminiscent of their era is very much frowned-upon or outright banned in Croatia, depending on the social context.

 

The association between the salute pronounced by Simunic and the Ustashe regime was FIFA’s rationale for imposing the harsh ban on the player.

Reversals of fortune in Judi Bola Korea

Judi Online

 

 

Three games down and the big story in the K League Classic is that champions FC Seoul are having problems. One point out of a possible nine was not the start that was expected. An opening day draw at home against Pohang Steelers was not a terrible start but then a first home defeat in nine years against Incheon United followed and then came a depressing 1-0 loss at Busan I’Park.

 

Fans are saying that the tactics and team selections are predictable and there is an over-reliance on offensive stars such as Dejan Damjanovic and Mauricio Molina and if they are not in form, which they are not, then coach Choi Yong-soo does not seem to have a plan B. If you add an out-of-form goalkeeper into the mix and have a defence looking vulnerable to counter-attacks.

 

The season ahead is still long as is the road back to the top and Seoul have much to work out if they are going to get there. It wasn’t necessary in 2012, the Demolition Duo was unstoppable and that may prove to be the case in 2013, but it hasn’t happened yet.

 

Incheon finished last season very strongly and have been the story of the new season so far with two excellent wins in Seoul and Seongnam. Judi Bola Coach Kim Bong-kil has the team well-organised with wide men Nam Jun-jae and Han Gyo-won looking sharp and rookie Lee Seok-hyun looking talented just behind the main striker.

 

Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma is another struggler but the seven-time champions went through something similar in 2012. Like a number of teams, there is a new coach and like almost every other team there are a lot of new players. Seongnam’s new signing Server Djeparov made his debut …

Italy Outclass Korea In Link Judi Online24Jam China

Link Judi Online24Jam

 

 

Park Tae-hwan thrilled South Korea on Sunday with his swimming heroics in Beijing but later the same day, Park Sung-hwa was looking less happy than the teenage sensation.

 

For the coach of the Olympic soccer team there is not much consolation to be had after a 3-0 defeat against Italy but at least South Korea is faring no worse than hosts China and better than the already-eliminated Japan at the 2008 Beijing Olympics soccer tournament.

 

After a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Cameroon in the Link Judi Online24Jam opening match of the group, Korea was hoping for a similar result against the highly-fancied Italians – one which would had left the Taeguk Warriors just needing to defeat outsiders Honduras in the final match to progress to the last eight.

 

Talk in Seoul may have been of the chances of a securing a tie but chat in Rome was of revenge; payback for what happened in the 2002 World Cup when Korea sent the Azzuri home. A group game at the 2008 Beijing Olympics may not have anything like the same glamor and gravitas as a World Cup knockout match but the build up to the game had that big match feeling.

 

It was unfortunate then that the game was almost over within the half hour in the Chinese city of Qinhuangdao. The Europeans took a 2-0 lead that they never really looked in danger of letting slip – if any nation knows how to defend such an advantage it is Italy.

 

‘Korean tears at the Italian defensive wall’ read one headline in the Seoul media. Now the team is in serious danger of elimination at the first hurdle. Nothing less than a win against Honduras will suffice on Wednesday and the likelihood is that …
