togel Poker Prohibition Warning From The U.K.

Glenda Conner 0

The UK’s Culture MP Tessa Jowell has commented togel that the UK government’s plans to regulate online gambling will do best at protecting children and vulnerable people.

“Gambling is a diverse, vibrant and innovative industry and a popular leisure activity enjoyed in many forms by millions of people in Britain today,” Jowell said. “And this leisure environment is also a source of employment and wealth for many towns and cities.

This bill aims to ensure that the public can enjoy that choice to the full and with confidence. It recognizes that adults need to be trusted and treated like adults.”

Her stance, and that of her government, is completely unlike that of the US, which she commented was comparable to alcohol prohibition in the early 1920s.

“Broadly speaking we have three choices,” she said. “You can prohibit, like the US, do nothing or regulate, like we have.”

She added: “America should have learnt the lessons of prohibition. The Volstead Act was meant to stop alcohol from causing harm, but in practice it forced otherwise law-abiding customers into the hands of the bootleggers.

Jowell also warned the real danger is that offshore sites which are unregulated by the country’s laws will become the ‘modern day equivalent of speakeasies’, increasing the risk of fraud and exploitation in the industry.

Golden Gift Not So Golden –
WSOP Winnings Saga Update

World Series of togel Poker champion Jamie Gold has stated he has absolutely no intention of sharing half of his $12 million winnings with Bruce Leyser who he met during the tournament.

Leyser recently claimed that Gold had promised him half of any winnings in return for help he provided in securing Gold’s seat at the infamous tournament. The so called promise was recorded on Leyser’s answering machine.

After winning the tournament and failing to pay up Leyser filed a lawsuit against Gold which resulted in a temporary restraining order stopping the release of the money from the Rio All Suites where the tournament was held.

Last week Gold retaliated with a court briefing stating that the agreement was “nothing more than a promise to make a gift.”

Richard Schonfeld, Leyser’s attorney, said Gold’s position is “absurd” and the fact that Gold admitted to the deal provides affirmation that Leyser is entitled to the $6 million. Schonfeld said in an interview “We’re glad they finally took a position.” Adding “Even though we were extremely confident in our case we are more confident now that we will prevail.”

The real issue at stake here is whether a verbal agreement is binding.

Leyser’s claim is that Gold’s seat was paid for by an internet poker company in return for him finding celebrities to also play in the tournament wearing the company’s logo.

Leyser further claims that Gold asked him to help with this in return for a share of his seat and any potential winnings. Leyser held up his end of the bargain by finding two actors to play in the tournament and wear the …

Turn the channel to any high-stakes poker event, and chances are high that you’ll see at least one Hollywood celebrity in the thick of the action. With flexible schedules and larger-than-average bankrolls, celebrities have both the time and inclination to hone their poker playing skills in tournaments around the world. Some, of course, never rise above the rank of amateur, but others go on to become familiar faces in the world of poker. What follows is a list of ten of the best celebrity poker players in the world (listed in no particular order).

Ben Affleck – It’s hard to argue Affleck’s status as one of the best celebrity poker players in the world after he won the California State Poker Championship in June of 2004 (where he won $356,400). When he’s not acting in movies such as Daredevil or Armageddon, Affleck collects vintage video-arcade machines and has been known to take poker lessons from pros like Amir Vahedi and Annie Duke. His win at the California Championship also qualified him for a seat at the 2004 World Poker Tour final tournament.

Patrick Bruel – toto hk Bruel is a well-known French singer and actor, having performed in over 40 television and film productions and recorded numerous top-selling albums. He also happens to be a world-class poker player. So while he may go unrecognized by American movie audiences, poker players from around the world will instantly recognize his face. Why? Well, in 1998 Patrick picked up a World Series of Poker bracelet for winning the 1998 $5000 Limit Hold’em event. He has also placed in the money numerous times in WSOP events, and earned over $750,000 in live play events.

Jennifer Tilly – This Oscar-nominated actress has starred in such hits as The Fabulous Baker Boys and Bullets Over Broadway. However, she has publicly stated that she’s becoming more interested in poker than acting. One look at her accomplishments in the poker world and it’s easy to see why.

Review of The Hand I Played

Glenda Conner 0

Last year the poker world lost one of its greatest advocates. In his books, magazine, and newspaper articles David Spanier entertained both those who regularly patronize the world’s poker rooms and folks those who have never set foot in one. Spanier is one of the few poker authors who is a writer first and foremost, and this is readily apparent in his books which are a true pleasure to read. Just before his death, the University of Nevada press decided to publish what will be his last contribution to the world of poker, the eerily appropriately titled book, The Hand I Played.

The Hand I Played is mostly a collection and often an elaboration of articles that Spanier had written for various publications, although several pieces appear in this book for the first time. The first section provides an insight into Spanier’s character and his early experiences that led to his fascination with gambling. The second considers the appeal of gambling to human beings as a species. The author also discusses the regulation of the casino business, advocating the protection of the gambler more so than the casinos or a government’s view of propriety. This is an enlightened view which folks with authority would be well advised to adopt.

Chapter 3 recounts Spanier’s adventures and encounters on a Caribbean poker cruise. He reacts bemusedly to folks who are more interested in playing cards than enjoying the sights of a beautiful part of the world, as well as to the fact that anyone would ask him, much less pay his way, to speak to this crowd of poker fanatics on the topic of tournament Slot Gacor strategy. Chapter 4 is a series of articles that feature a (probably mostly) fictional home game, seen from the eyes of a player that can’t seem to make the right moves, coincidentally named Dave. Even though I don’t generally enjoy the wackier poker games that pervade home games or even descriptions of them, the novelty and skilled writing of these stories written from the point of view of the mostly hapless protagonist was quite entertaining.

Spanier next discusses his experiences with the Internet and playing poker on it. This isn’t a great description of the nature of ‘Net gambling, and Spanier is quick to admit his lack of technical savvy, but he manages to paint a fascinating portrait of this remarkable industry. In Chapter 6, the author presents some of his thoughts about gambling and Las Vegas in literature, considering such authors as Dostoevsky, Puzzo, and Thompson. I found his insights on this topic to be fascinating.

Before the book concludes with a description of Texas Hold’em for those who aren’t familiar with the game, Spanier describes his experiences playing in the most highly revered poker event in the world, the $10,000 No Limit Hold’em tournament at the World Series of Poker. Even though Spanier didn’t finish in the money and, by his own admission, didn’t even play terribly well, his description of his trip …

Why hiring a certified translation company is worth it

Glenda Conner 0

Selecting a certified translations provider for the translation of your important documents like legal papers, company manuals and scientific study is worth it. There are cheap translations that are available everywhere most especially in the Web but they can not be trusted with important documents for several reasons.

They are ideal if the documents that need to be translated are ordinary and do not affect your work or life.
