Poker tournament success with chericasino.net

Poker tournament success with chericasino.net

 

 

Here at Ohio State Steve and I have been hosting a regular, Thursday night poker tournament. It draws about 20-25 people every Thursday, it’s a $5 buy in with unlimited rebuys and an add on. The pots aren’t huge, winner usually takes home about $100, but it’s a lot of fun and great practice for tournament play.

 

Tonight I played very well, finishing third. It backed up the first place finish I had last week. I lost tonight to a bad beat, I went into the flop a 2.5 to 1 favorite and ended up losing on an ugly river, but finishing 1st and 3rd in a 25 person tournament builds confidence and gets me a little bit more respect in games we play during the week.

 

How do I approach these tournaments?

 

The tournaments have a very fair structure since we’re playing and don’t want it to be based on luck. Our goal is to provide a tournament where solid play prevails. We’ve adopted a point system to reward top repeat performers with a “tournament of champions” at the end of the quarter. I am actually the point leader right now after two solid …

Replacement of Legacy Enterprise Management Solution Paves Way for Service Level Management

SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA – May 2, 2005 — Privately held Nimsoft today announced that UK-based Ladbrokes, the betting and gaming division of Hilton Group, has chosen to adopt its NimBUS service-level management solution to provide real-time service monitoring and reporting for its IT infrastructure spanning thousands of heterogeneous servers, networks, databases and applications.

Faced with the task of replacing an existing enterprise management solution, Ladbrokes embarked in an extensive market evaluation that included more than 20 vendors. The final shortlist included BMC Software, HP, Microsoft and Nimsoft, but following actual onsite testing, Ladbrokes has decided to standardise on the NimBUS solution from Nimsoft after it demonstrated superior scalability, functionality and return on investment. Additionally, the NimBUS solution emerged as the only offering ready to tackle true service level compliance reporting through its unique ability to define, monitor and report against service level agreements (SLAs).

“As the market leader in the UK betting industry and the best-known brand in the global eGaming market, Ladbrokes works hard to continuously deliver innovative value and services to our customers,” said Paul Thompson, Office Systems Manager, at Ladbrokes. “During our extensive …

LA Poker Classic

I am a fan of the game of poker. I can play it for hours on end, and I can watch it being played (well) for hours on end. But I would be lying to you if I said that Thursday’s final table for Event # 8 of the LA Poker Classic was thrilling to watch. Filled with ten players with neither a propensity for action, or for chatter this final table was all business.

 

In sharp contrast to the prior evening’s final table, where Men “The Master” Nguyen, and Freddy Twin kept the chips flying, and everyone at the table loose, this final table was more conservative, and quiet. Also adding to the mix was the fact that this wound up being by far the longest final table of the series so far. If there wasn’t a deal cut at the first possible moment, I might still be there.

 

It was nearly sixty minutes before anything worth reporting happened. At that time, Bashar “Charlie” Satoot (in his second final table in 48 hours) set a trap for Scott Lazar, and it worked to perfection. Scott moved in at the pot with a …

Horse sense for Casino Extra Poker Players

Horse sense for Casino Extra Poker Players

 

 

 

A man was quietly reading his paper when his wife sneaks up behind him and whacks him on the head with a frying pan.

 

‘What was that for?’ he says. ‘That was for the piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name Mary Lou written on it’, she replies.

 

‘Two weeks ago when I went to the races, Mary Lou was the name of one of the horses I bet on’, he explains. She looks satisfied, apologizes, and goes off to do work around the house.

 

Three days later he’s again sitting in his chair reading when she nails him with an even bigger frying pan, knocking him out cold. When he comes to, he says, ‘What the hell was that for?’

 

‘Your horse phoned.’

A Blackjack dealer and a player with a thirteen count in his hand were arguing about whether or not it was appropriate to tip the dealer.

The player said, ‘When I get bad cards, it’s not the dealers fault. Accordingly, when I get good cards, the dealer obviously had nothing to do with it so why should I tip …

Streaming Video Casino Cbet Poker Feeds

Streaming Video Casino Cbet Poker Feeds

 

 

Can’t get enough Poker on TV these days? How about watching or listening to games online?

 

While scanning the podcast directory of my Juice/IPodder feed receiver yesterday, I came across nearly a dozen streaming audio and video web feeds of poker games. I’m in the process of consuming the feeds, so I can’t comment on the overall quality or content, but some of these are simply screen captures of online games with voiceover commentary. Pretty funny and entertaining, but they may be educational for a newbie to online poker. And a bit of fodder for cardaholics.

 

There are too many feeds to list them all here (see list below), but what I suggest you do is download the Juice/ IPodder feed receiver/ client. In the Podcast Directory tab of the software are a number of folders. Look for the ones marked sports, click on one of them, and look for subfolders marked Poker or Cards. You can subscribe to them using the Add feed button.

 

Juice can be scheduled to download late at night, or for whenever you’re not using your computer. I’d suggest some sort of scheduling, as some of the video files are …

Police Are Saying “No” To Toto HKPoker

Police Are Saying “No” To Toto HKPoker

 

 

Across the United States and around the world, poker seems to be the game of choice. But as more play the game, the more notice that law enforcement gives to the game as well.

 

Recently, in Chicago, a home game was raided and all involved were ticketed for gambling. The police spent a year of surveillance on the game, even to the point of infiltrating the game with one of their own officers. They expected thousands of dollars to be circulating; what they found was a $20 maximum buy-in among sixteen people. After taking the money on the table, the chips, and issuing citations to all involved, the police left. The players simply drew out another $20 and continued the game.

 

In Greensboro, NC, two men were arrested for running a home Toto HKpoker game. In this case, the police found that the men were taking a rake from the game, thus the arrests. The Charlotte/Mecklenburg (NC) County Sheriffs Department recently concluded a two year sting operation that resulted in another home game being raided and the homeowners arrested. Both cases are still pending trial.

Cheri Casino Poker Variations – Omaha Hold’em + Omaha Hi-Lo

Cheri Casino Poker Variations – Omaha Hold’em + Omaha Hi-Lo

 

 

All of the posts on this blog this year have focused on Texas Hold’em. While that is my fave form of poker, there are several other forms – some new, some old – and a professional needs to know more than one type. I’ll cover a few forms in a loose series, including Omaha Hold’em, 5- and 7- card stud, California Hold’em and others. This first article in the series is on Cheri Casino Omaha Holdem and Omaha Hi-Lo (aka High-Low). I am not making a distinction between Limit and No-Limit games.

 

Omaha Hold’em, as the name implies, is very similar to Texas Hold’em. The betting is the same, and the same number of community (board) cards are laid down on the table. As with Texas Hold’em, Omaha can have 10 players.

 

The difference is that each player starts with four hole cards instead of two. To make a hand, a player picks 2 cards from their hole and 3 from 5 on the board.

 

On the minus side, in a tourney with 10 players, 40 cards from the deck of 52 are in the hands of players, and 5 will be on the board. …

He’s Back!! Phil’s New Book about Best Bets Today

He’s Back!! Phil’s New Book about Best Bets Today

For many years, 1989 WSOP World Champion Phil Hellmuth has reveled in his image as the John McEnroe of poker. I have always preferred to think of Phil in comparison to another sports icon. I have always thought it was a better analogy to think of Hellmuth as Dale Earnhardt; an intimidating presence to see near you or at the table. Additionally, much like Earnhardt, there is no middle ground. People either love Phil Hellmuth or they hate him.

When Phil wrote his first book, Play Poker Like The Pros, it was hailed as an excellent primer for new players. It gave great insight into starting cards, position and playing styles. It was also well received by the poker community. Most rank it as a “must have” poker book, even talking about it in the same realm as Doyle Brunson’s “Super/System”.

2004, however, wasn’t the best of years for Hellmuth. Possibly due to a lack of concentration, more than likely to a numbingly intense poker and business schedule, Phil didn’t win a tournament, although he made the final table at a few events. Could it be as well that he was amassing material for his new book?
