Player Sihoki Slot profile: Scott O’Reilly

 

Scott O’Reilly shoved in his remaining stack after a raise from an early position player. The initial raiser sneered behind designer sunglasses.

“You must be straight from the internet,” he said. “All in, all in, all in.”

The antagonist stood up and showboated for the Sihoki Slot cameras now trained at him. “Here, you want my all in button?” he asked as he walked over to O’Reilly. “You need it more than I do.”

After a few minutes, the player folded and play resumed.

O’Reilly came over to me after the hand and told me had kings. He figured he’d get action after being so aggressive before, but that’s poker.

The 22-year-old O’Reilly, from Torquay, England, won his seat through a $215 Party Poker super satellite and is jazzed about making it deep in his first WSOP main event. He was humming along with 250K in chips as dinner break approached.

“It’s cool,” he said. “It’s a massive, massive event and to still be rolling up the prize pool makes it even more [cool].”

Day 4 Update: Patrick Datillo

“Did you take anybody out today?”

It’s the first question Pat Datillo hears from his boys when he calls home. A hairdresser from Ottowa, Canada, Pat said he attributes his WSOP success to his supportive family.

“I think that’s the main reason I am still in here is the full support from home,” he said.

Pat’s wife Liz has been by his side from day one. Leaving the Rio with him around 2 a.m. and waking up each day around 8 a.m.

“I think she’s just as tired as me,” he said.

Pat began Day 4 with $355,000 and now has around $200,000. He was able to double up early on in the day.

“The river gods were in my …

Gold Takes Out Spirit Rock Sihoki Slot

 

Prahlad Friedman, better known in the high-stakes online poker world as “Spirit Rock,” was just eliminated in 20th place in an astonishing hand that only further cemented Jamie Gold’s chiplead.

Gold raised to 400,000 and Friedman pushed all-in. Gold clearly had Friedman’s 1.7 million stack covered and called, flipping up the 7c-8d to Friedman’s Ah-3s. After nearly a minute-long wait for a flop as the ESPN cameras moved into position, Gold’s railbirds erupted when the flop came 6s-5c-4d, giving him the nut straight. Friedman’s head sank into his chest as Gold jumped up from the tables to high-five the crowd. The Jh on the turn meant Friedman was drawing dead, and he’ll take $494,797 home to Los Angeles.

Gold may be on one helluva lucky streak as of late, but this hand matchup is closer than you think, and Gold’s call of Friedman’s all-in is actually mathematically correct (he had to call 1.3M to win a 2.3M pot). Before the flop, Friedman was 54% to win and Gold was 45%– pretty close to a coinflip. On the flop, however, Friedman was only drawing to a chop, and there was only a 1% chance of the turn and the river coming runner runner 7 8 to give them identical straights.

Gold is now sitting on more than 20M in chips.

Getting Back into เเทงหวยออนไลน์

 

For the past few months i’ve barely played any เเทงหวยออนไลน์ but i’m just starting to feel like I am getting back into it again. I’ve always had the most success from heads up Sit and go’s, so that’s what i’ll be playing.

My plan is to start at the $50 level, and hopefully after I make a few thousand, i’ll mix in $100 games, and then eventually $200, $100, and $50 games. I’ve played a ton of games at all those limits before and know what to expect. What i’ll be doing different this time is focusing hard on game selection. I’ll never sit first and only play losing and inexperienced players. The goal is to make money with as little variance as possible by playing bad players.

It’s so weird looking back a year ago and remembering how I thought I knew everything about poker. Now I’m realizing how much more I know now, and still how much I’ll need to mature at the game. It’s not even obvious stuff or directly related to playing cards, but a bunch of small things that will add up to a better ROI. I’ll talk about some of these theories / ideas in the future.

For now I need to work on focus / endurance at the table. I’ve never been able to play more then an hour or two at a time without an ADD attack. I don’t really have ADD, but I have no attention span. —Oh yeah, that reminds me that i was supposed to put clothes in the dryer about two hours ago.— I idolize the players who can pull 10+ hour sessions day in and day out.

Anyway, I’m really excited that I’m back into poker. Hopefully it lasts and I can make a lot of …

Limpy sbo Gimpy

 

I had to stop at the S&K; on the way to work. We have this giant rear screen projector as part of the new fake-TV set, and I have to wear a sportcoat that fits. For a good year or two I had my weight totally under control, but as is usually the case, I lost focus and gained pounds. In my job things like weight and hairstyle, the dimple in my tie and the fuzzballs on my coat, are under constant scrutiny. My General Manager is the undisputed KING of dapper dressers and last week he called me into his office for a momumental chat.

Just moments before my last workday of the week, before a short vacation and knee surgery, he stopped me in the hall and said, “Make sure you come to my office before you leave today, we need to talk about something important.”

Later that same day he asked again, in the way that any boss actually ASKS for anything, “Don’t forget, you can’t leave today without talking to me first.”

So after my story was written, and all preparations were made, I visited the plush corner office ready for, at best, a dressing down. I couldn’t think of anything I’d done wrong, but the first words out his mouth were these, “I hope you know I DO like you,” he said, before turning to actually face me, “but you may take this the wrong way.”

BLUR

I suppose most of my life has been as unfocused as my writing. Every effort begins with a too-ambitious goal, obtainable only by too-strenuous determination, which I always half-accomplish. I’m actually struggling to complete this line of thought. I’ve been swept into a chat with TV’S Marc about Hurricane Katrina. I’ll probably finish this post in a …

Dwan Down Another $40k to Jungleman12

 

Two young phenoms, Tom “Durrrr” Dwan and Daniel “jungleman12″ Cates, were dueling again as part of the Durrrr Challenge 2 on March 29. This would mark the second time the two played in just a few days. Railbirds were informed via Dwan’s twitter with his “About to play a short session vs jungleman on FTP now” tweet. And as usual, all action was played exclusively at FulltTilt bandar judi pulsa .

The action started out great for Dwan as he was trying vigorously to win back some of the $270k he lost the last time the two battled. A crucial hand in Dwan’s favor was when he had 10s7s vs. Cates’ Qc5c. Cates led out on a flop of KdJh7c for $4,800 in a $9,600 pot. Dwan thought for a moment before making the call. Cates continued betting on the 9s turn with complete air. Tom again smooth called the bet, this time for $14,000. Cates unloaded the barrel and pushed all-in on a 6h river. Dwan saw past this bluff and called to scoop in the $108,574 pot.

Tom Dwan enjoyed his early $111,000 lead but would soon find himself in a hole again. Cates managed to out-kick Dwan in a $101k pot in which two 8s fell on the flop and both players holding one. Cates had J8 as opposed to Dwan’s 86 and would dodge the three outs, twice. Both players decided to run it twice with Cates winning both times.

Dwan seemed to be flustered and couldn’t gain back any momentum until he finally quit 1,099 hands and down $39,797 later. Of the 50k hands total they are to play they have now played 19,335. Cates is up an amazing $1,251,059 and Dwan hasn’t led since the 3,000 hand mark. On top of this, Dwan …

I Pay Ur Rent wins Full Tilt Poker환전가능 꽁머니 XVI Event #14

  Players looking for action Tuesday night were served up with a special Turbo tournament courtesy of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series. Event #14 of 환전가능 꽁머 XVI was a turbo-format which means the blinds were increased every 5 minutes as opposed to a standard structure which sees the blinds go up every 10 or 15 minutes. This faster structure forces players to be more aggressive and stack-off with worse hands because they are left with fewer Big Blinds earlier in the tournament. Turbo tournaments require a different skill set than regular tournaments as players are forced into push/shove mode much earlier and have to rely more on the mathematics of tournament poker than the ability to out-play their opponents after the flop. More than 2,300 players entered the tournament which started at 18:00 FullTilt Lobby time. The tournament carried a $400,000 guarantee which was easily bested as the prize pool reached $465,800 before registration ended.  Nearly 30 FullTilt sponsored professionals played in Event #14 including big names such as Scott Clements, David Pham, and Chris “Jesus” Ferguson. The event was hosted by FullTilt Red Pro Martin Klaeser who took down the 2008 WSOP PLO/8b tournament for $216,249 and his one and only bracelet.  Online his best finish as been a win in the $17.5K Guarantee on FullTilt for $12,728. He did make the final table of a Sunday Major, the Brawl, just last month but busted early in 7th place for $11,652. 234 players made the money in Event #14 including a few FullTilt professionals. The best finish was by Ram Vaswani, who took home $721 for his 73rd place finish. Joining Vaswani in the money was Berry Johnston who finished in 104th place. A few pros finished on the bubble including Christian Kruel (253rd) and Marco Liesy …

Full Tilt Licensing Hearing Rescheduled

 

Things just keep getting worse for Full Tilt Poker. After spending several weeks gearing up for their audience before the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, they have learned that their hearing will be delayed. Initially, the meeting was scheduled to take place on September 15th. Now, things have been pushed back to the 19th.

The root cause of these problems, as their longtime users can attest, is their continued failure to support their player base after the events of Black Friday. The Alderney Gambling Control Commission revoked the company’s operating license a few months later, citing their legal and public relations problems as the main causes.

This latest bit of news comes on the heels of another major announcement from Jeff Ifrah and David Deitch, two members of the Full Tilt legal team. crypto gambling Both men are seeking to withdraw from the defense table, where they had formerly been defending eight members of Team Full Tilt against a class action lawsuit. They will, however, continue in their defense of Ray Bitbar, the company’s CEO.

Rumors have also been circulating regarding the company’s possible purchase by outside investors. While it is unsure whether or not the former poker giant will be bought before the September 19 hearing date, a new ownership group could swing the legal pendulum in their favor.

Jeff Ifrah and David Deitch, two of the lead lawyers representing the eight members of Team Full Tilt who are embroiled in a class action lawsuit, are attempting to distance themselves from the skirmish. As reported by EGaming Review, both men are seeking to withdraw ” ‘as attorneys of record’.”

“[C]ontinued representation of Defendants,” read the group’s motion, “would create unreasonable difficulty for us to carry out our employment effectively and would result in an unreasonable financial burden to our …

New Jersey Cracks Down on Underage Gambling Online

 

 

As New Jersey’s online gambling bill inches toward a signing session with Governor Chris Christie, state regulators are busy nailing down the cracks through which potentially underage gamers might try to slip. Among those who’ve expressed confidence in the matter are the people at the Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association, more commonly known as hk prize .

“Right now,” says iMEGA Chairman Joe Brennan Jr, “all the technology required is being used by European casino websites. Suppliers of age verification software will be able to open up US divisions and supply the US marketplace with proven technology.

 

“New Jersey’s regulators are in a position to become the de facto primary regulators for iGaming in the U.S. much in the same way Nevada regulators are in the casino based industry. New Jersey regulators are the toughest in the world. Those who can make it through the process will increase their value and the value of the industry itself.”

 

Labeled as S490, the legalization bill has seen relatively little resistance from the state’s caretakers. If passed, it will be a landmark decision in American Gaming.

 

iMEGA also claims that, because of the extra scrutiny given to the online scene, underage gamers are more likely to slip undetected into a brick and mortar establishment than they are to earn a seat in most of the high-end internet gaming sites.

 

Because of their unique situation, New Jersey’s government will now have the opportunity to closely regulate those to whom licenses are granted. Said David Pope, Marketing Director for 192business.com, “Both the regulators and their licensees will certainly be able to draw on expertise built up in jurisdictions in Europe and beyond. In terms of what that might mean to the operators who get licenses, the good news …
