Odds favour Tremblant for tourist-target casino

Glenda Conner 0

If Quebec wants a casino that will attract tourists, the most logical place for it is at the Mont Tremblant resort, according to Gaétan Frigon, head of Loto-Québec.

Frigon, whose marketing skills turned staid Société des Alcools du Québec outlets into tasteful boutiques, was tossing a wild card on to a stack of options on how to develop Loto-Québec’s casino business. He floated the notion of a new casino at Tremblant during a recent meeting with the editorial board of The Gazette.

 

Tremblant has a $1-billion expansion plan in the works and expects to draw 7 million visitors by 2012. About 45 per cent of the resort’s visitors are from outside Quebec, Frigon said. Many are American and a growing number are expected from Europe and Asia.

 

“Theoretically, it makes sense. It will probably be a nice area to have a casino,” Frigon said.

 

Frigon claims to have left his UFABet poker-playing days behind, but he is playing a high-stakes game. The challenge presented him by Finance Minister Pauline Marois since he took the helm of Quebec’s most profitable crown corporation in February is to maintain Loto-Québec’s revenue (net $1.4 billion last year) but lessen the negative “social impact of gambling.” Translation: reduce the number of Quebecers who become addicted to gambling.

 

There has been a growing backlash stemming from the 100 documented gambling-related suicides in Quebec between 1993 – when Loto-Québec’s casino and video-lottery-terminal network were initiated – and 2002. In his first public speech in March, Frigon pledged to fight compulsive gambling.

 

At least in Quebec, among Quebecers.

 

Revenue that might be lost from a planned scale-back of 1,000 of Quebec’s 15,000 VLTs is to be offset by the export of Loto-Québec’s expertise in the gambling industry and through the enticement of more tourists to Quebec casinos.

 

Hence a reassessment of Loto-Québec’s first casino, which opened on Île Notre Dame in 1993 and has expanded several times since then.

 

The Casino de Montréal has been hugely successful – with Quebecers. Officials hoped for 5,000 people a day – 25 per cent tourists – but instead locals swamped the place. Tour buses couldn’t even get into the parking lot.

 

With expanded parking and gambling space, the casino now entertains 20,000 people a day, sometimes 30,000. Of the 6.8 million people who visited the gambling hall last year, only about 10 per cent of them were out-of-province tourists, according to Loto-Québec’s own figures.

 

Frigon has told a team to reassess the Montreal casino and given it three options:

 

– Status quo – leave the present Montreal operation as is.

 

– Expansion of the casino at its current site, which currently has about 3,060 slot machines, 127 gaming tables and 2,000 onsite parking spaces, with nearby lots for 1,500 more.

 

– Relocation of the casino, perhaps to the island of Montreal.

 

The status quo can be ruled out: doing nothing isn’t in Loto-Québec’s vocabulary, and it’s not …

Ligaz11 Casino Player’s Information

Glenda Conner 0

Our goal is, when a casino advertises “Tex’s TEARS Structures”, a player could travel to that casino and know how many starting chips he would receive and what the structures would be in each event. Now he can make a decision as to whether or not he wishes to attend and participate in that series of events.

 

In the past, I have paid for airfare and traveled a long distance to get to a tournament that I thought would be a good tournament only to find that the events were not playable because structure increases were too large (100%), the starting chips were inadequate, or something else. When players pay their money for airfare, hotels, meals, and buy-ins, I think that they have the right to know what to expect in major tournaments and we are trying to give that to them.

 

The criteria for starting Chips:

When using “Tex’s TEARS Structures” and when the buy-in is $100 or larger, the player should never receive less than 1,000 starting chips as long as there is no re-buy. In re-buy tournaments the players should never receive less than 500 starting ligaz11 chips. Re-buy chips will either be the same amount as the starting chips or twice the size of the starting chips (the casino chooses which). If the buy-in is larger than $1,000 the players will receive starting chips that equal the buy-in amount, dollar for dollar. In smaller tournaments, with buy-ins of less than $100, the casinos will choose the number of starting chips (such as monthly, weekly, or daily events).

 

The cost for Blind and Ante increases averages less than 50% per level.

 

If a casino advertises “Tex’s TEARS Satellite Structures”, this means that the early levels will increase at a faster rate. However after you reach the 200-400 blinds the rest of the levels are at the normal TEARS increases to allow more play toward the end. Most satellites are over about the time you reach this level. These structures are normally used only for satellites and smaller shorter tournaments.

 

We have made a few small changes in our structures to accommodate chip removal from the table, etc. However our main goals are intact and will remain so.

 

Tex’s TEARS belongs to you players. I am only the keeper of it for the present. Therefore, as a player, you must insist that tournament directors give the number of starting chips along with the blind and ante structures called for in the current “Tex’s TEARS” program. After all it does belong to you.

 

The casino always controls how many hours of playing time there will be in each event. I, personally, do not like to play in any major event with less than 8 hours of playing time. However the 5-hour events that I have played under this system have been quite comfortable to play in.

 

The players that have played using “Tex’s TEARS” have approved of it by an overwhelming …

‘Action Dan’

Glenda Conner 0

What does “Action” Dan Harrington want the poker world to know about him? “As little as possible,” he said, grinning from ear to ear. And he’s not kidding! Perhaps that’s why not much has been written about this talented, consistent, highly accomplished, ruddy-faced Irishman, who can often be seen peering out from under his familiar bright green Boston Red Sox cap.

One of Dan’s greatest skills is gathering information at the poker table while simultaneously disclosing very little about himself or his game. He loves it when people are chatting at the table, because that gives him information. He loves it when other people wear headsets, because they are not privy to the valuable subtleties that occur at the table. He is an information hound. Like a finely tuned computer, he stores each piece of data methodically and then relies upon that information in his decision-making process.

He actually exhausted himself so much in the championship event of the World Series of Poker last year when he finished third that he had a game plan this year that included consciously not paying complete attention all six days, for fear that his stamina wouldn’t last. His plan paid off — to the tune of one and a half million dollars. Good plan.

Dan Who?

Dan Harrington hugs Jack Binion — and a million bucks — after winning the 1995 World Series of Poker.

If you are not acquainted with “Action” Dan Harrington or his accomplishments, he is a top money winner at the WSOP, having raked in about $3.5 million. He was at the final table in the championship event in both 2003 and 2004, when the fields contained 839 and 2,576 players, respectively. In 2003, he won $650,000 for finishing third, and in 2004, he won $1.5 million for fourth place. These amounts of money are staggering compared to the other luminaries who not only made it to the final table two years in a row, but went even further and won back-to-back championships.

Back-to-Back Champions

Let’s take a look the at back-to-back champions and the amounts of prize money they won in their back-to-back wins:

Johnny Moss — 1970 (voted the champion by his peers) and 1971 ($30,000)

“Texas Dolly” Doyle Brunson — 1976 ($220,000) & 1977 ($340,000)

Stu Ungar — 1980 ($385,000) & 1981 ($375,000)

Johnny Chan — 1987 ($625,000) & 1988 ($700,000)

Compare those extraordinary results with Dan’s astonishing back-to-back final-table performances and draw your own conclusion about his consistency.

Did I mention his performance in 1995? He played in the WSOP $2,500 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournament and won it, pocketing $249,000. Then, he went home, rested up, and came back and won the 1995 WSOP $10,000 buy-in championship event for a big fat million bucks!

The final hand of the 1995 World Series of Poker

Who is Dan Harrington? He is the player’s player who consistently brings home the bacon. If poker were a team sport, Dan would be the kind of teammate you’d rely upon …

Eduardo Galeano, a football lyricist

 

“In his life a man can change his wife, his political party or his religion but he cannot change his football team.”

 

I was sad to hear of the passing of writer Eduardo Galeano aged 74.

 

Based on his experiences as fascist dictatorships took power in his native Uruguay (where he was jailed) and then in Argentina, where he had escaped to, the Montividean wrote much pressing journalism, including the seminal study of South America’s exploitation, “The Open Veins of Latin America”, a book Hugo Chavez famously handed to Barack Obama on camera.

 

But Galeano also never lost his love of football and penned one of the great soccer books, “Futbol a Sol y Sombra’ – “Football in Sun and Shadow”/ “Soccer in Sun and Shadow”, a lyrical reflection on a life of love for the Beautiful Game.

 

This title always crops up on the lists of great football writing …

All hail the reign of the beautiful Qq Poker Online Spain

Glenda Conner 0

 

 

So dreams can come true. Even Spanish footballing ones. And they can even come true in a wondrous way.

 

The Cava is still flowing and rightly so. In winning Euro 2008, Spain ended a quest for silverware that at 44 years’ length, two more than England’s, had defied all sense of fairness or logic.

 

But that they laid their hoodoo to rest in such style makes them the toast of the soccer world. Not since the Netherlands in the World Cup of 1974, or the Hungarians in 1954, has a nation playing such dazzling football reached the final of a major tournament. Unlike Cruyff’s and Puskas’ teams however, the Spanish vaulted the Qq Poker Online Germans at the last hurdle. The heart has beaten the head at last and the Beautiful Game is new again.

 

Their 1-0 win was not as delightful as their earlier victories in the Alps, but there was still enough of their mesmerizing passing and movement to leave nobody in any doubt that in more ways than one, the best team of the tournament had triumphed.

 

Germany suffered from Michael Ballack’s woes; having missed Saturday training, he took a bloody wound to the eye and got himself booked in a frustrating first 45. Then Philipp Lahm, another key player, fatally hesitated to let Fernando Torres score before leaving the side at half time. In the second half, the Germans looked oddly jaded and unable to test Iker Casillas in Spain’s goal, but even had fortune been on their side, you suspect the Spanish would still have been too strong for them.

 

This was indeed a victory for football, if we believe the game at its best is about aesthetics and not just winning. The soccer world had believed for so long that strength, hard work and organisation were the keys to victory, that we had forgotten about the entertaining by-product the fans so adore.

 

Flair players are have been considered liabilities in the quest for results, so set against this background, Spain’s win comes as an refreshing counterblast to the prevailing consensus.

 

Watching them labour to a 1-0 win over the USA in Santander on the eve of the competition, I saw enough of a midfield loaded with attacking talent to know they would be a force at the finals, and I tipped a team from the Iberian Peninsula to win, though I still felt a fit and on-song Germany could edge them thanks to their superior big-game mentality.

 

I was wrong – Spain had that inner steel to balance their twinkle toes. Confidence, that most powerful yet elusive weapon a team can posess, stayed with them until the end. Where the Netherlands, the other truly impressive team from the first round failed, the Spanish succeeded. Their self-belief saw off the challenge of the impressive Russians, devastatingly so (3-0) in the semi-final, before their prowess prevailed once more when Vienna called.

 

A final is like …

A new season kicks off this weekend and see’s the return of Walker’s Word. Another 10 months of non-stop top flight football action begins on Saturday with both the opening and closing matches ripe for picking a couple of shock results at great odds writes David Walker.

 

Saturday 19 August

 

Sheffield United vs Liverpool

Sheffield United make their Premiership return after a 12 year absence at lunch time, to kick off another 10 months of top flight action. The bookmakers are predicting a cakewalk for visiting Liverpool, but Blades boss Neil Warnock will have other ideas. During the 2002/03 Carling Cup, United beat Liverpool 2-1 at Bramall Lane, drew 0-0 at home in 1993/94 and beat the Reds 1-0 the previous year in the Premiership’s debut season. Liverpool may have one eye on their Champions League tie against Maccabi Haifa Bandarqq three days later which still hangs in the balance at 2-1 in the Reds favour.

Baccarat – Togel Online

Glenda Conner 0

 

 

Once upon a time, to play baccarat, had to be put on tuxedo and the game was surrounded by an atmosphere of elegance and exquisiteness. It is believed that Bakkara was presented to the royal court in France at the beginning of the XIX century during the reign of Louis-Philippe. Rules Bakkara described as in art books, and movies. The most famous amateur Bakkara – the legendary James Bond. He frequented casinos in the evenings, always choosing a table, which was played in baccarat.

 

Today, thanks to the internet in the casino, you can look at any time and in any clothing. However Baccarat online from this was the only interesting. Indeed, it can successfully play as a beginner or a professional. The most attractive in Baccarat and Baccarat online is that rates are low and sometimes «symbolic», and the advantage of a relatively small casino, so people can understand at first, and then incorporated into the game more seriously.

 

What is the meaning

Baccarat – this is a simple Togel Online game where players are basically hoping to fate. Typically, the table is up to 16 people, but has always played in two hands, the rest just make bets on someone who, in their view, would benefit. The aim of baccarat and Baccarat online – to dial nine or near the maximum number of points.

 

The player and banker «Dark» is dealt two cards. Looking received a combination of player Baccarat decide – to take or not take a third card, which is served in clear. After taking account of the cash, and again each participant Baccarat online finds their scores.

 

Scoring points

In Baccarat, as well as Baccarat online, play a 6 packs (small table), or 8 decks (large table) on 52 cards. It depends on the number of participants. Points are considered to be as follows: ace gives one point, any images, and a dozen – do not give anything. But the remaining cards in Baccarat online valued at par – «deuce» gives 2 points, while «nine» – 9. Points are added up, and if the result is a more than 9, then subtracted all the dozens. Eventually, at the hands of baccarat players will always be the sum of scores from 0 to nine.

 

The advantage of online

When you play Baccarat online may well be to increase its capital, although it happens slowly. The payment of winnings in Bakkara online at a cost of the player (Ponte) happens 1:1, as well as with the rate on cash (Banco). But in the latter case, you will need to have to pay about 5% of the casino commission. The money accumulated during the game, and brought up after Baccarat.

 

A much more attractive in this game is picking «draw», where the payment is considered to be 1 to 8 or even 9. Here are just a lottery in «draw» is much less than victory for the player, and the …

Blackjack is King of the bola88 card games

Glenda Conner 0

 

 

Although it may not be as popular as the slot machines, Blackjack is King of the card games. Simple to learn, Blackjack is one of the few online casino games that can actually return a Player’s Advantage when played with accurate strategy. There are several variations of Blackjack, more of which can be found on the internet than in land-based casinos.

 

Blackjack can be played with as little as one deck and up to eight, and depending on the version, can be played with one hand or multiple hands at a time. Although you are more likely to find higher table minimums in land-based casinos, online blackjack is accommodating to every bankroll and can normally be played with stakes as low as $1.

 

The objective of blackjack bola88 is to shape a hand near a point total of twenty-one without going over (busting). All cards are worth their numeric value, while face cards (Jacks/Queens/Aces) are worth ten points and Aces are worth 1 or 11 points, depending on which value will get the hand closer to twenty-one without going over.

 

All games are played between the player and dealer, with each being dealt two initial cards. The only difference is that one of the dealer’s cards is facedown. The player must then make a decision to draw additional cards (hit) or abstain from drawing (stand). In between, options to take insurance, surrender a hand, split hands and doubling bet amounts will present themselves.

 

This is where the Basic Blackjack strategy has its advantage. Based on mathematical odds, the strategy informs players when to take the appropriate actions, depending on what the dealer’s upturned card is and the total value of the player’s hand. As the case is in any casino game, there is no guarantee of winning at blackjack. However, if the basic strategy is used with 100% accuracy 100% of the time, a player will at least come out even.

 

Here are a few tips to keep in mind: Do not take Insurance if it is offered to you (when the dealer is showing an Ace) and seek out games that pay 3 to 2 for a blackjack, as opposed to 6 to 5. You won’t have to worry so much about this when playing blackjack at online casinos. However, if you ever do come across blackjack that pays 6 to 5, turn around and walk the other way. Lastly, if you take the time to learn the basic strategy, which you should if you are serious about winning, begin by learning to spot patterns in the strategy so as to understand why it functions the way it does. Then, put the strategy to the test in an online casino that allows you to open a fun-money account.
