The Netherlands hk prize Online Gaming
In a move starkly contrasting with their anti-online gambling stance, the new Dutch government has proposed a regulation system similar to those already up and running in several European nations.
“It is a big shift,” government hk prize Jaap Oosterveer told Reuters, “but this is a new government with a more liberal approach.”
The Netherlands’ previous legislative body wanted nothing to do with online gaming, and made several decisions in keeping with that philosophy. These included defeats of both Ladbrokes and Betfair, each of whom have previously challenged the authority of the gambling laws.
But with hundreds of thousands of Dutch citizens openly circumventing the current laws, it would seem that the government’s new approach features a great deal of common sense. Such was the argument of state secretary of security and justice Fredrik Teeven, in a letter he recently penned to the Dutch Parliament. The argument here is simple: By passing a system of online gaming regulation, the government stands to gain an estimated €10m next year, from the auction of internet gaming and lottery licenses alone. A great deal of further profit will emerge once the taxes begin flowing in from the tables.

Review of Super/System
Along with David Sklansky’s Hold’em Poker, Doyle Brunson’s Super/System, originally titled How I Made Over $1,000,000 Playing Poker, heralds the beginning of what I would call the “modern age” of poker. More than anything else, I believe that the rise in poker’s popularity over the last 25 years is due to the amount of good information that has been made available about the game, and Super/System is preeminent among the information sources that brought about this surge in popularity. However, it may be asked, how does this classic stand up more than 20 years after its initial publication?
The book begins with some introductory remarks, including an abbreviated history of Brunson’s poker career, before the author launches into some general strategies for winning poker. This is all stuff that today’s well-read poker player will take for granted: keep emotional control, carefully watch the competition, play patiently, etc., but it’s pretty much all good advice. I can’t say I completely agree with Brunson’s feelings about ESP, but the information he provides isn’t damaging.
Then, for the bulk of the book, Brunson has someone he considers to be a true expert in a given poker game lay out their advice on how …

HYPIXEL SKYBLOCK MONEY: WHERE MAINSTREAM MEDIA GETS BITCOIN WRONG
Bitcoin has a media problem. Or, perhaps, the media has a Bitcoin problem.
Mainstream media has often framed Bitcoin with the same scandalous curiosity that may publicize a troubled former child star or a controversial tech startup. Most journalists have viewed it as a sideshow, a distraction that warrants only so much attention lest it detract from the supreme spectacle of the 21st century’s historic advancements in technology, business and finance. By some combination of apathy, lack of curiosity and ignorance, Bitcoin is often misrepresented or represented poorly in mainstream news outlets.
Let’s cut these career journalists some slack. After all, a traditional finance reporter may be daunted by this new and confusing world of decentralized digital currency. And fluent as they may be with the ever-evolving world, seasoned technology reporters may nonetheless view Bitcoin as a leviathan of the technically arcane. Learn more about HYPIXEL SKYBLOCK MONEY
Bitcoin is indeed a complex esoterica. So it’s little wonder that just four years after its creation (when Bitcoin was beginning to formally enter the international conscience), Vitalik Buterin opined in the seventh print volume of Bitcoin Magazine that “a significant amount of disinformation about Bitcoin continues to …

Nevada Gov. Signs iGambling Singapore Online Casino Bill
Nevada governor Kenny Guinn on Thursday signed a bill that will officially open the doors for online gambling in the Silver State.
Guinn’s approval comes on the heels of several months of legal wrangling and legislative ‘machinations’ that nearly saw the interactive gaming legislation die in the Senate. The bill was rescued on the eve of the legislature’s final sitting when it was piggybacked onto another gambling bill.
The bill’s signature into law does not mean that brick-and-mortar casinos will be able to launch real-money wagering sites any time soon, however. The Nevada Gaming Commission will first need to draft and adopt regulations governing online gambling. These regulations will deal with issues such as gambling by minors and blocking players from states where gambling is prohibited.
State officials reiterated that they would not defy a federal ban on Internet Singapore Online Casino wagering, but did note that several court challenges in other states may make the gambling ban unenforceable.

DIGITAL ISLE OF MAN JOINS THE BRITISH BLOCKCHAIN ASSOCIATION AND HYPIXEL SKYBLOCK MONEY
Adoption & community – Digital Isle of Man Joins the British Blockchain Association
One of the earliest adopters of blockchain technology — the Digital Isle of Man (Digital IOM) — is now an official member of the British Blockchain Association (BBA). The organization serves as a bridge between government regulators and the private sector, and encourages growth, innovation and support in the Isle of Man’s fintech industry.
Digital IOM believes that blockchain technology has the power to revolutionize how the world does business, and it recently granted the first reputable license for a blockchain lottery. The association primarily works through the Isle of Man’s Department for Enterprise to govern both digital media and e-gaming.
Brian Donegan, director for e-business at Digital IOM, explained, “The BBA has been very proactive in providing a platform to support our blockchain based initiatives, which has provided us with added competitiveness in these markets via access to their specialist technical expertise.”
The BBA has attracted several thriving industries over the years, including pharmaceuticals, healthcare, energy and identity management. Donegan says the group’s knowledge and assistance have been profound, and he can’t imagine Digital IOM succeeding without their influence. Learn more about HYPIXEL …
