And That Makes 11 for Phil Slot Gacor Hari Ini … a Tribute

Glenda Conner 0

Phil Slot Gacor Hari Ini, one of the greatest tournament poker players ever, breaks yet another record. First, at the age of 24, he was the youngest player ever to win the WSOP Main Event in 1989, defeating and preventing Johnny Chan from getting a record breaking win #3.

Then, in a controversial 2006 WSOP, Phil grabbed the record for most WSOP cashes at 50. He later went on to win his 10th bracelet, tying a record held by Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan.

2007 increased Phil’s WSOP record for number cashes (63) and ties TJ Cloutier for number of final tables (39).

But the big news is that Phil has won his 11th WSOP bracelet in, what else, Texas Hold ‘Em. The $1,500 No Limit Hold ‘Em event, to be precise, where he beat out 2,627 other players to take home the $637,254 first prize. Phil’s 11 bracelets have all been in Texas Hold ‘Em.

That win also put him in 7th place for all-time WSOP winnings at just over $5.6 million.

Phil Hellmuth is known as the “Poker Brat”, and with good reason. His affinity for throwing fits and demeaning other players is legendary, more so than his amazing poker career. He is oft quoted as saying, “If it weren’t for luck, I’d win every tournament.” Well Phil, I’ve seen plenty of cases where if it weren’t for luck, you would have been busted out yourself. But hey, if it weren’t for luck, we probably wouldn’t play the game.

Whatever you think of the guy, there’s no dismissing his talent. The man is a force to contend with on the felt, and anybody (un)lucky enough to be at the same table as him is in for a lesson they’ll not soon forget… most likely in how to spell “poker”.

Why Your Poker Skills Get Worse Before Getting Better

Some amateur players settle into poker tactics that they feel comfortable with. They hesitate to try anything new because it ends up not working very well for them, so when they do try new tactics, they often abandon them because “they don’t work.”

The truth is, it’s common to get worse at something before getting better. Here’s something that I speak of from personal experience that explains why this phenomenon happens.

Growing up, I played basketball for local organizations. My shooting technique involved having both my hands on the side of the ball. My coach explained that proper shooting technique required putting one hand under the ball while the other was to side to stabilize it.

So I tried correcting my technique. Guess what? Every time I shot the ball using this “proper” technique, I bricked it off the backboard. My field goal percentage went in the crapper.

Well, the thing about being young is that you are more willing to break bad habits because you simply haven’t had enough time to settle in and become stubborn about them. I continued practicing with the corrected technique. In games, yes …

Excitement먹튀사이트

Tomorrow is the first event of the 먹튀사이, 10k buyin Pot Limit Holdem. And despite it being a format I don’t like, I can’t wait to hear them say “Shuffle Up and Deal.”

I am not a fan of PL Holdem due to the fact that there are no antes and antes are what allow an aggressive player like myself to chip up at ease. For example, if the blinds are

200-400 a typical ante is 50. If there are 9 players at the table and you raise and steal the blinds you pick up 600 + 50 x 9, which is 1050 chips. So a standard raise of 1200 nets you 1050, which is .875:1. If there are no antes you will only gain 600 chips, which is .5:1. That is a big difference if you are raising and stealing a lot preflop. I guess I’ll have to bring a different style to the table to adjust for the change.

Either way I will be there, playing my ass off. I have been really envisioning great things for me at this WSOP during this live poker break. It’s been great working out and getting healthy and not stressing over poker. Taking a long break is something I we should all think about if things start to turn sour and nothing is working to fix it.

The Magic Pro Tour in LA went decent for me. I had a great time and saw many close friends and others that I hadn’t seen in a while which is always great. The tournament on the other hand didn’t go so well. I couldn’t decide on a deck until the late hours of the night before, which I hate doing, and even then picked a bad deck. I lost my first round to a little bit of bad luck and the second to having a bad deck. After a 0-2 start I finally picked up a win and then lost again. At 1-3 I had to win the next 4 matches of the day to make the cut for the second day. I won the first 3 and found myself at 4-3; I finally had a winning record. In the 8th and final round of the day, playing for day 2, I got a bad match up and proceeded to get crushed in two quick games. I usually am pretty clutch when playing for something, such as money, a spot in the top 8 or even day 2, but there was just nothing I could do, other than pick a different deck to start.

I hope everyone is enjoying the SnG video. There should be another going up soon. Trust me, I already recorded it . I may make more SnG videos, they were fun to film but let me know in the forums if there is something else you would like to see.

So far so good

Well the working out and dieting is going pretty good. It was …

Pivot Point Trading

This kind of trading has been around for a long time and was originally used by floor traders.

Reasons Why You Should Become A Landlord

Glenda Conner 0

Sometimes life throws us a curveball, and we can end up scratching our heads wondering what to do next. It may be that you have a large bill crop up, or things change dramatically in your career. Relatives overseas may fall ill, or you may find you need to get away from the city. There are lots of reasons you may need to rethink your accommodation. How you manage the change may depend on more than one factor.
If you are facing a big move, whether temporary or permanent, you may be saddened to think of leaving your home. The thought of never waking up in the room you decorated and furnished yourself can be quite upsetting. However, if you rent out your home, you can come back to it whenever you want to. Your home could earn you enough to cover any mortgage and pay for accommodation elsewhere if you rent it out.
Becoming a landlord is not a decision to take lightly. Letting someone else live in your home while you are away can also be a difficult choice to make. But the house remains your property and renting it out provides you an income. As a landlord, you have some legal obligations and responsibilities. What might worry you more is how your tenants will look after your beloved home in your absence.

Generally speaking, landlords like to take one month’s rent as a deposit, and all rental payments paid in advance on the same date each month. You can also choose whether to let your home out furnished or unfurnished. Unfurnished is preferred because of tight regulations in some areas. …

The Coushatta sbobet Massacre

Glenda Conner 0

In August 1874, dozens of freed slaves and six men from Northern sbobet Louisiana were told to leave the state of Louisiana by some redneck cowards who didn’t like the idea of carpetbaggers and free blacks in South Louisiana. As those 6 white men and the dozens of freed slaves with them were headed toward Texas, they were run down by 40 men and killed. Their bodies were dumped in shallow graves. No one was ever convicted of the crime. This happened just outside the town of Coushatta, Louisiana.
I wish I had known that history before I took my carpet-bagging self to the Coushatta sbobet for a little poker. There was another massacre and my bankroll might as well be in a shallow grave.
Dead Last
It was the $50,000 quarterly tournament at what was once my favorite live poker room. There were 120 players who each ponied up $460. It wasn’t my favorite structure, however, since we started with T10,000 and blinds at 100/200. The regular Saturday tournament is much better.
I got my seat assignment and told myself I’d tried to wait for big starting hands in the first level and play them hard. I wanted to make som chips early so the blinds didn’t start to hurt me.
Three hands in, it happened.
UTG limps and UTG+1 does as well. I peek down at two black Q’s. The Hilton Sisters. Two dirty bitches. I pop it to T1000. It’s folded around to UTG who smooth calls. Curious. We’re heads up.
The flop is 852 rainbow. Hard to ask for a better flop that doesn’t include a Q. UTG checks and I bet the pot, T2500. He smooth calls. I suppose I should have worried about something here, but what am I supposed to put the limper on at this point? It’s possible, I suppose that he flopped a set, but I didn’t get that read.
The turn is a 7, a second spade. If the guy called my preflop raise with 46 or 69, so bet it. Send me home. The guy checks again and I have T6500 in front of me with a T7500 pot. If he was playing something like A8 of spades, I’ve got to make it expensive for him. And if he’s playing 99, TT or JJ, I’ll be taking all his chips. Hard to put a limper on AA or KK. What’s the play?
If I check behind him, he gets a free river and an invitation to push on the river. If I bet anything at all, I’ve committed my entire stack. I decided to push. He quickly called and flipped KK.
Cowboys. He limped UTG on the third hand with KK and cold-called my raise. The river was a 4. I’m just not sure what I do different on the hand. Am I really suppsoe to play scared with a big overpair and a relatively uncoordinated board?
I’m out, in dead last.

I couldn’t go back to …

Finding Your Niche on eBay

Glenda Conner 0

You’ve spent a day or maybe two or three cruising around eBay. You even registered and bought that iPod skin your niece wants for her birthday. Now it’s time to get down to business; that is, your business. Just exactly what is it that you are going to sell on eBay? The right choice of product is one of the most important decisions you will make when you become an eBay seller. If you are already successfully selling products in a different environment, it is still important to select that perfect product from among your wares that is best suited to your eBay audience.
It is true that many people clean out their closets and turn a tidy penny auctioning off their loot on eBay. However, the day is long past when any moldy old pair of shoes from the back of the closet would be snapped up by an eager eBay buyer. Even if you did make a killing with last year’s snow boots, the detritus from your storage unit doesn’t make for much of a business plan. There are many people though who have built eBay businesses selling the contents of other people’s closets for them so that is one area at which you might want to look.
When considering your product, think along these lines:
Do you want to sell an item which reflects a personal passion? Hobbies are the basis for many eBay success stories as are personal interests such as a specific period in history or a style in fashion.
Do you want to serve as a conduit for other people to sell their products on eBay? Stores to which individuals consign their items are mushrooming throughout the country. This sort of eBay store, however, can be both labor and capital intensive. You will also need to have a solid knowledge base of eBay expertise or employ someone who has the know how.
Do you want to expand your current bricks and mortar customer base by establishing an eBay presence? eBay is an excellent way to quickly implement an online strategy.
Do you want to purchase items and resell them on eBay? You can accomplish this goal by purchasing single pieces that you scout out or by being a drop ship merchant. Picking up wholesale lots is another way of being a reseller.
Now you are well on your way to discovering your route to eBay success. Once you have narrowed down possibilities for the kind of eBay merchant you want to be, it is time to do more online research. It may seem to you that a lot of time is being spent just looking around and getting a feel for the terrain. You will find though that tomorrow’s eBay success is founded on today’s eBay research.

Priming the slot hoki pump

Glenda Conner 0

Warning: The following is mindless drivel that is not even worth reading. I just needed to get it out of my system for the morning
In Kansas City, Missouri, the autumn air can take on a bit of a dewy haze. Bright red brake lights on the noodly junction onto I-70 shoot through the dew droplets in millions of tiny prisms. It makes it hard to drive, especially if you’re fighting to get back to a holiday slot hoki you created. It makes it even harder if your libido is making it difficult for you to correctly turn the steering wheel.
Damn that woman, I thought, just two seconds after my front right tire slammed into a bridge.
It was the last weekend of October 1992.
***
That night was sort of a turning point in my life. The car survived, I made the trip back to Columbia, MO. I left the woman behind and proceeded to embark on a night of debauchery that I have matched few times in my young life.
The last weekend in October–back in those days–was Dionysian Weekend, a self-proclaimed holiday-ish event that took my friends through three straight days of silliness and rowdy-rambling.
I was ill-prepared for that first holiday weekend. It ended with me sprawled on a bathroom floor, speckled with grape-scented vomit, and a guy standing above me remarking, “You can still smell the grape!”
At some point in our lives, we all realize that while spontaneity is a virtue, preparation is no sin.
It was shortly after that weekend that I took to priming the pump for big events.
And as any reader knows, a big event sits on the all-too tantalizingly close horizon.
***
I’m like a little damned kid when it comes to stuff like the next week’s WPBT conference. It’s not all I think about, but it fills a goodly portion of my daydream musings. G-Rob and I can only take a certain portion of our workday to discuss the lack of sleep we expect to get before the Holiday Classic, our poor chances of lasting past the first break, and how we plan to maintain our composure over several long days in Vegas. We do have to do some work before then, after all.
And while Mrs. Otis has been quite a champ about the whole thing, I do my best not to overfill her head with my musings. After all, she’s staying home to take care of L’il Otis while I go have fun.
Brief digression: Here’s something fun about Mrs. Otis that I haven’t shared yet. Thanksgiving night, after the in-laws had left the house, I retired to bed with the laptop and started playing a little NL. Eventually, Mrs. Otis snuggled in beside me, quizzing me on pot odds, implied odds, and the like. On one particular hand, I flopped an open-ended straight draw. My opponent underbet the pot, giving me the odds to call. I explained my play to Mrs. Otis, listing my …

Street Closures, Fitness In Park

Glenda Conner 0

MONTCLAIR, NJ — Montclair will be temporarily closing South Park and Church streets to traffic on the weekends to help businesses beat the coronavirus pandemic, officials announced Thursday.

The township will also be creating a space for local fitness studios to offer socially-distanced exercise sessions at Crane Park (see more details below).

The effort is the result of a partnership between the township and the Montclair Center Business Improvement District (BID).

A pilot program to close South Park and Church streets will kick off Friday and continue through September, according to a joint statement from the town and the BID:

The BID assumed all costs for the first weekend of street closures, and the township will cover street closure costs through Sept. 27.

The BID and the township are also examining other sections of downtown to possibly present more street closures and parklet spaces to create additional pedestrian space and slow traffic.

In addition to the street closures, Crane Park will have an area dedicated to instructor-led fitness classes. Local fitness studios will have use of 60 socially-distanced spots: 35 for members, and 25 to be open to members of the public on a “first-come, first-served basis.” You can also learn about “how to change your facial structure“, click here

Montclair also plans to develop a digital ad campaign to encourage township residents and visitors from surrounding communities to shop safely and enjoy the local outdoor restaurant scene.

Other municipal efforts to ease the COVID-19 woes in Montclair include waiving sidewalk café permit fees, and offering the first 15 minutes of parking free of charge to encourage curbside pickup services.

This is in addition to the town’s previously launched COVID-19 recovery and business re-opening plan, which makes grant funding available to local small businesses. As of Thursday, the town has received more than 150 applications, and will soon send out grant checks to qualifying businesses, officials said.

Story continues

“All of these measures will allow our businesses and restaurants to expand their footprint for more traffic and patrons,” Montclair Mayor Sean Spiller said.

“We also want to provide residents and visitors greater opportunities to spend time outdoors, whether it’s enjoying an alfresco meal, shopping in our local stores, or simply taking a stroll on our streets, while following all public health requirements,” Spiller said.

“None of this would have been possible without an engaged and creative community of retailers, restaurateurs, designers, township and community leaders,” said Jason Gleason, executive director of the BID.…

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 …

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.
