Toto HK Final Table

 

I watched the World Series of Poker final table last night on ESPN, and I have to say that I was absolutely disgusted by the play and behavior.  The nine survivors survived over 6000 players and 6 days of play to get there, only to throw their chips around like idiots when they got there.  Maybe it was being on center stage and the soccer hooligan type crowd that accompanied it.  Maybe it was the potential fame and fortune that lied ahead.  The guy who won it, Jerry Yang, clearly had the strategy that he was going to bet everything and call everything, and whatever happened happened.  The chip leader heading into the final table, Philip Hilm, got into confrontations that were totally unnecessary, and ended up giving all of his chips to Yang, when he should have known that Yang didn’t know how to fold.  The most accomplished player at the final table, Lee Watkinson, ended his tournament by going all-in with A-7 and getting called with A-9.  Ugh.  Those two hands all-in preflop with millions on the line?

The most despicable part of watching it was when every time Yang was all-in, he’d kiss a picture of …

Bush signs the port security / online gambling bill

 

And i’m not scared or surprised. We all knew it was coming after the law passed in the senate. I’m sure เเทงหวยออนไลน์ and FullTiltPoker saw this coming as well, and they have already announced that they’re sticking around. Neteller doesn’t show any signs of quitting on us either.

I’m going to continue transfering money in an out of poker sites like I always have. I don’t feel the least bit threatened to stop at this point. I hope nobody else uses this as a reason to give up playing poker.

Need a Big Win

Its 5am right now. I was about to go to sleep about an hour ago, but then I saw that Mortal Kombat is on and I cant resist watching it. The movie would be so good if they remade it with a bigger budget and an R rating. Someone call Peter Jackson.

So I was thinking that I really need to win a big tournament. Like the PokerStars Million dollar guaranteed. Im sick of grinding out a few hundred here and there, and just want to win $150,000. No more winning satellites and cashing out, Im going to start playing some of the bigger tournaments.…

AMILV–Overheard sbo

 

Overheard at the WSOP…

* “Honey, you just can’t be chickenshit at these things. You just wouldn’t survive here. No offense.” –Man on the phone with his wife explaining how his bluff got called to knock him out of the $3000 NL event

* “I’m on tilt.” –James “KrazyKanuck” Worth sitting down at a lowly $125 single table satellite…with me…after he busted on the TV bubble in a $5000 event (Incidentally, I went on to chop that one, something I’ve done in my last three single table sats. Also, incidentally, the Kanuck is one really nice guy and it was fun to sit next to him).

* “Tell me your bad beat story: $5 $2.50” –Seen in magic marker at a manned table in the hallway.

* “You’re still here.” –Ernie, the room service waiter who served me two weeks ago, then went on vacation with his family, then returned to find me in the same room.

* “She’s been classically trained.” –Dr. Pauly, at the hooker bar, while a Rio cocktail waitress danced on an elevated stage.

The Dealer’s (is) choice

It’s been said, mostly by BadBlood and me, G-Vegas is where you’ll find the best homegames. There’s …

How Much Does Social Media Marketing Cost?

 

I was reading and article on how much does social media marketing cost. This quote below pretty much sums it up.

Creating a comprehensive strategy for social media marketing and outsourcing all work for all channels (with a minimum of two social networks) costs anywhere from $3,000-$20,000 per month, with the industry average settling between $4,000-$7,000 per month. If you want the social media agency to start the accounts from scratch and consult on a 4- to 12-month contract, you’ll pay between $3,000-$15,000 per month. What do they mean by channels, minimum of two? That’s just a fancy way of saying that the cost includes both Facebook and Twitter…I’m betting there’s probably an upcharge if your company wants Google+, too. — Content Factory

They then go on to claim a spot dead center in that spectrum, while I claim a spot near the bottom of that spectrum.

Why do I dispute that social media marketing cost?

I have a system. I’ve been using it for years, and have taught a handful of select small business proprietors how to use it. It works. It’s efficient. It’s productive. I offer training in how you too can achieve social media marketing success …

Poker’s small slothoki world

 

…just a brief entry to freak out a little.

A few weeks ago, I sat in a poker tournament across from a guy I’d never met before. He was a friend of a fellow poker blogger. He came along to pony up the $50 buy-in, have a little fun, and bust out of the tourney first.

In case you don’t know, when I’m not a poker playing Otis, I’m a journalist who often covers the court system.

Flash forward to a criminal trial I covered all of last week: The last slothoki on the stand (and perhaps the one that convinced the defendant to cop a plea) was a guy by the same name as the guy who played in the tourney.

2004 WSOP Episodes #5 & #6

Turns out, he did not only have the same name, but also the same DNA.

Now, I’m fully aware of how small a world it is, but it freaks me out a little bit that a poker blogger I only met a month or so ago also happens to be friends with a guy who played a major role in a case I’ve been covering for the past year and a …

Sensitive Skin: How to Cleanse?

Cleansing can be a challenge for those with sensitive skin or dry skin. While washing and cleansing are necessary and important for proper skincare, it can also dry out or irritate the skin if it is overdone. People with sensitive skin react easily to minor irritants, and unfortunately some soap including the traditional bar soap can contain many of them.

DON’T WASH TOO OFTEN:

Showering or bathing once a day should be plenty for most people. This may be different for those who work labor jobs in the summer or have a similar circumstance, but for most people that work in a temperature controlled environment, the amount of dirt and dust that is accumulated is limited. Washing too often dries the skin, leaving it prone to irritation and itching. For those with sensitive skin, this effect is amplified.

DON’T USE HOT WATER

:

Hot water is rough on the skin, and drains the moisture. Long hot baths get the blood flow going, and also temporarily weakens the barrier of the skin, causing itching and irritation. Use lukewarm water to bathe, or better, shower, and limit your time in the shower. Short, warm washing once a day or once in two …

6 Best Secrets of Real Estate Investors

 

Real estate investment is a source of passive and active income. This is due to steady rate of property appreciation. Prospective investors finding ways of saving for investment may consider real estate business.

However, the business experiences varying degrees of risks. Despite the real estate risks, a few investors emerged successful. While countless of other investors are running into losses that are avoidable.

Let us examine real estate during 2007/2009 global economic recession. Then, we can discuss the secrets of successful investors.

Brassica investment claimed that unprecedented foreclosures filings took place in America in 2007/2009. During the 2007/2009 global economic crisis. “Florida filings soared 133%, hitting more than 4.5% of all households, while Arizona filings jumped 203% to 4.5%”. Also, “..California had the highest total number of filings for any state, 523,624, more than double 2007 levels”.

According to statistics by Forbes:“the median sale price for a home in the U.S. was $200,000”. By the time the market reached bottom, “prices had dropped 29%, to $140,000”. Suffices to say that the foreclosures crashed the value of properties. Although, the business saw untoward crises in the past, that doesn’t stop regular earnings of investors who know the secrets.

His Year Rolls On: Erik Seidel Wins the Five Star bandar judi pulsa High Roller Event

 

If you are a golf fan, you have been privileged to watch Tiger Woods plying his craft from 1997 until now.  Granted, his last 18 months have been marred by personal problems, injuries, and a golf swing that seems to be in constant flux, but on the whole, you and I have never seen a man dominate golf as he has done.  Consider the following:  Woods has won 71 PGA Tour Events and 14 Majors, both tops among active players.  He was the fastest player to ever reach the 50 win plateau, leads all golfers in career winnings, and has piled up 11 World Golf Titles as well.  By every measurable standard, you’ve seen a golfing legend when you see Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods on the course.  And yet this is a poker article, but Woods is relevant, because I’ll suggest to you now that Erik Seidel’s run of live tournament success thus far in 2011 is poker’s equivalent to Woods on the links.  If you’ve not yet noticed the run of tournament success that Seidel has built up in this calendar year, allow us to bring you up to speed on a legendary streak of excellence.

slickkid08 wins Full Tilt Poker꽁머니 환전 XVI Event #27

 

The various Full Tilt Online Poker Series have featured hundreds of different events since the festival began in 2006. The old stalwarts remain popular, with big-buy in Omaha freezeouts and cheap NLHE rebuys the order of the day for many tournaments, but the Full Tilt schedulers try their best to add a dash of innovation to every series. Event #27 of 꽁머니  XVI is just such an event, a mish-mash of styles and rules that captured the imagination of a select group of intrepid trailblazers.

A total of 1,069 entrants coughed up the $515 + $20 to play in this No Limit Hold ‘em Knockout Super Turbo tournament with minuscule starting stacks. Every player began with just 300 chips and a bounty on their head, leading to some breakneck action as an entirely shortstacked field vied to build up chips and eliminate their opponents. For every player sent packing, entrants pick up $115 sliced off from the vanquished player’s buy-in. The rest of the money goes straight into the prize pool, to make a final table spot still worth fighting for. There was a conservative guarantee of $350,000 placed on the main prizepool, which was comfortably topped, …
