Unique Casino

Big man on paper…

The game is $10/$20 Seven Card Stud, an American classic. Five players. Everybody antes, $5 in the pot.

 

I catch two fours in the hole plus an ace up. Marvin Muckworthy, to my right, opens for $5, and I complete for $10 so as to be as aggressive as my ace but not so aggressive as my hidden fours. Call, call, call, call, $55 in the pot.

 

I get the third four on fourth street, no joke. I’m high man with the ace, so I bet $10–aggressive or foolish, from the other players’ points of view. Call, call, call, call, no joke. And now there is $105 in the pot.

 

On fifth street I snag a second ace. I’m now fours full of aces, a cinch bet, but I’m two aces showing. I bet $20. Call, call. But wait: Tony Tablestakes read somewhere that it’s hard to beat an exposed high pair, so he folds, god bless him. Marvin Muckworthy calls, leaving $195 in the pot.

 

On sixth street I hit a third ace. Unbelievable. Even more incredible, when I bet $20, everyone stays. Fiona Flushmonger, to my left, calls on nothing visible. Brad Bellybuster calls on a crooked straight. And Marvin Muckworthy is praying that something will wash up in the river to best my three exposed aces with his two visible sevens. And it’s $275 in the pot.

 

And then, my cup runneth over, on Unique Casino seventh street I pull the fourth ace. Aces full of fours and more and more, loaves full of fishes like tuna on rye: three fours and four aces. I bet first, of course, because I have–ahem!–three exposed aces. Flushmonger, Bellybuster and Muckworthy all call my $20 bet, the lord alone knows why. At the showdown–guess who won?–the pot is $355.

 

It’s mine, all mine! I’m rich, rich, rich!!

 

On paper, that is. Because we were playing a play-money game in an on-line card room.

 

Play-money is the bane and the boon of on-line poker. The house gets a chance to show off its product in the most non-threatening way possible. The novice on-line poker player gets a chance to learn the game–or just learn the user interface–without risking real money. But the play in play-money games is as loose, as aggressive, and as foolish as anyone could ever imagine.

 

In Hold-’em, play-money players will raise and re-raise pre-flop all the way to the cap on almost every hand, and eighty percent or more of the table will stay to see the flop. In Stud, theoretical millionaires will bet three times around the table with every card. The ultimate big-man-on-paper will show up at a table with literally hundreds of thousands of dollars in play-money, won in no-limit games where the imaginary stakes average $50,000 a pot. All hail the Hypothetical Croesus!

 

All that by itself is funny. Painful, too, of course, as you wait impatiently for the opportunity to play your real cards, tumbling around in a dryer-load of over-raised rags. But it stops being funny when you consider this:

 

Play-money teaches you to play badly. To play like Jethro Bodine, burdened by unwanted riches and looking for love with all the wrong raises. Play-money players master all the habits of the ideal fish: They stay when they shouldn’t, raise when they shouldn’t and only slip into the muck at the river, leaving hundreds of pretend chips in some other player’s stack.

 

This is no way to learn the game of poker.

 

Play-money is a good way to learn the software of on-line poker, you bet. And it can be a good way to get some free practice at _real_ poker skills–provided you play real poker even as the fish are schooling themselves in the art of losing like drunken frat-boys.

 

Play only premium hands. Fold as soon as you know you’re beat. Prosecute your advantages to the fullest. And don’t get ****ed into the loser’s game of playing loose, aggressive and foolish all at the same time.

 

If you play heads up or short-handed play-money games will go faster. And as you play, the better bad players will mimic your good example, even if they don’t know why. Best yet, the worst of the bad players will get bored and go find a game where they can raise and re-raise on rags.

 

And as soon as you feel confident of your abilities, move up to the real game, playing with real money. If you remember always to play your best game, you’ll win from the first. Just think: Many of your opponents will have schooled themselves to be fish with play-money.

Multiple Link Alternatif Sbobet Winners Rule at Jackpot Madness

London, June 21, 2001 – Jackpot Madness (www.jackpotmadness.com), the Internet’s largest gaming portal, gave away over $400,000 the weekend of June 9-10 to a total of 18 lucky winners. Not an unusual weekend for the busy portal, but three of these big winners have won large jackpots before and returned to triumph on the progressives again. Multiple winners have become more and more common on the 70-casino network, as people are finding that their Jackpot Madness ship can come in more than once, twice and even more….

Marilyn M, Grandmother of 3 and owner of her own business, never really believed that people ever won in internet casinos, but after winning $15,789.23 on SupaJax at The River Belle back in March, she is a confirmed fan. “Believe you can be a winner! My friends thought that the games on the Internet were fraud, but when I told them I won, they were really surprised and said that they should start playing as well.” So, imagine her reaction when she hit a $123,580.66 jackpot June 9th on Fruit Fiesta at The River Belle, breaking the highest payout record on that progressive: “I feel that I am on a lucky streak and now I have it in my mind to win on all of the progressives! Last time I talked to you, you said that there are people who won more than once. Now that I won twice and I know that this is possible, I know that I can win again…and I will!”

 

That same weekend, Greek Accountant Chrisoula P. won a third LotsaLoot jackpot of $20,573.50 at King Solomon’s, adding to her two previous wins of $25,166.03 on April 2 and $35,802.35 on May 25th, totaling $81,541.88. “I have always dreamed of going to Jamaica, and now I can. I am also buying a new car!” Linda W., Systems Analyst, was absolutely thrilled when she won a jackpot of $10,754.70 playing Cash Splash at The River Belle on April 22nd. “I was amazed, I couldn’t believe it was me who had won!” If that amazed her, on June 10 she hit the jackpot again, this time to the tune of $66,631.80.

 

Since launching Cash Splash in November of 1998, the Microgaming-powered Jackpot Madness progressives have paid out a total of $32,276,821.50 to hundreds of internationally-located winners. One of them, Blake R., has won three times for a total of $272,957.56, and has used his winnings to make major home improvements, help out his mother and 8 siblings and purchase a boat he is calling the “Cash Splash”. Debbie R., a five-time winner, has steadily won a progressive a month for the last 5 months, in a different casino each time, totaling $271,263.24. With this unexpected windfall, she and her family were able “to build the house of our dreams.” Record-breaker Jean G. has won 6 LotsaLoot jackpots totaling $305,163, and even more amazingly, both her mother and her daughter have won substantial LotsaLoot jackpots using Jean’s computer.

 

Marilyn, Chrisoula, Linda, Jean, Debbie and Link Alternatif Sbobet Blake are just a small sample of the many winners who have gone back to win more than once, and who are determined to win yet again, enriching their lives and the lives of their families. In the words of five-time winner Debbie, “All these wins definitely make life a little easier, it’s not so stressful. It is always nice to be a winner.”

Banks Offering Cryptocurrency Services? A New Reality Is Arriving for Crypto Gambling

Noelle Acheson is a 10-year veteran of company analysis and corporate finance, and a member of CoinDesk’s product team. The following article originally appeared in CoinDesk Weekly, a custom-curated newsletter delivered every Sunday, exclusively to our subscribers. Bitcoin might finally be overlapping the broader fintech industry’s popularity.

Norway’s largest online-only bank, Skandiabanken recently announced it plans to offer clients the ability to link bank accounts to cryptocurrency holdings.

 

While some might see this move as one of traditional banks embracing bitcoin, really, it heralds a new shift in the evolution of cryptocurrency into the greater fintech space.

 

Skandiabanken announced its intentions this week to let users connect a bank account with a Coinbase account, allowing users to view their cryptocurrency balances within the banking app.

 

The app allows users to view their holdings, just as they would other investments, and, for now, the functionality does not include the ability to buy and sell cryptocurrencies. The bank has stressed it does not yet view bitcoin as a currency, but instead another asset class.

 

This is likely the beginning of a trend that sees bitcoin merge with broader fintech trends of offering customers innovative, if not niche services.

 

Unbundling banking

Around the world, mobile banking is taking a lead over branch-centered activity – in Norway, for example, 91% of the population access online banking sites.

 

The proliferation of fintech services that ‘unbundle’ traditional banking functions, combined with the maturing of the internet-first generation, are accelerating this trend.

 

What’s more, the European Revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) activates in 2018. The directive mandates that banks have to share customer data with third parties through APIs, which could include access to cryptocurrency services.

 

So, the combination of online banking, fintech services and open APIs point to a blurring of boundaries between traditional and alternative finance.

 

New banking institutions such as Skandiabanken, are taking steps towards accepting  Crypto Gambling bitcoin and its altcoins as credible assets. Should this trend continue,  cryptocurrencies could end up becoming a more firmly consolidated feature of the new fintech landscape.

 

This will place even more pressure on legislators to come up with comprehensive plans for regulating a new asset class.

 

It is also likely to encourage development of the next generation of cryptocurrency-related services.

 

And while this doesn’t mean that bitcoin and similar assets are becoming mainstream, it shows that financial disruptors can start to change a narrative that’s been stagnant for decades, and that cryptocurrency is here to stay in the large fintech ecosystem.

Togel Singapore

Deciding Where to Play: Vegas or Togel Singapore Online?

“No one will know – or even care – if you’re wearing your pajamas when you play online.”

Nevada legalized gambling in 1931, and since that time, the state has been a popular destination for gamblers and thrill-seekers alike. But even with its star-studded shows, rooftop roller coasters, and all-you-can-eat buffets, can Las Vegas casinos still compete with its online counterparts?

There are lots of perks that make online casinos unique, just as there are things that make Vegas special. So check out the list below before you decide to walk over to your computer – or hop on a plane.

  • Las Vegas has Siegfried and Roy. Throw in a couple of white tigers and lions and you’ve got one heck of a show! You won’t find anything like it in any online casino, but then again, you don’t have to worry about getting mauled.

 

  • There’s no dress code when you play online. You won’t be allowed in certain Togel Singapore casinos if you dress like a slob. But no one will know – or even care – if you’re wearing your pajamas when you play online. Just remember to wear your lucky shirt, no matter where you are.

 

  • Vegas has volcanoes, Egyptian pyramids, Venetian gondolas and canals … all within a few blocks of one another. Online casinos may not have all the glitz and glamour that is Las Vegas, but you can still find things like Elvis.com, the Official Elvis Presley Web site, on the Net. (Watch out for the audio when you launch that one.)

 

  • Big name headliners – both online and Vegas. Madonna will be live in concert at the MGM Grand Hotel Casino, but she first previewed her newest material to millions of fans via Web cast.

 

  • Live drag queens – definitely a Vegas thing. Frank “The Queen of Las Vegas” Marino and his ‘La Cage’ show is fabulous stuff. But you could try this at home (and impress your friends). Or not.

 

  • Providing your own background music is an online thing. Vegas may have KC and The Sunshine Band, but it also has really bad lounge singers. Download MP3s and choose your own background music.

 

  • Karaoke is usually a Vegas thing. Karaoke is either really good or really bad, depending on whether you sound like Julie Andrews. And remember, it isn’t karaoke if you’re singing in the shower.

 

  • Crowded games tables and noisy casinos are a Vegas thing. Some people like the lights, the bells and whistles, and the energy in Vegas, but it drives others crazy. Pick any popular online casino and you’ll be guaranteed a seat at any table, without all the distractions.

 

  • Free drinks, food and other comps are a Vegas perk. Many online casinos also offer free money or sign-up bonuses, weekly giveaways, and of course – free games. But it’s just not the same as a cocktail with a little pink umbrella, served in a pineapple.

Aladdin discloses possibility of closure of best online casino singapore

 

 

A severe dip in Las Vegas tourism and apparent infighting among the owners of the Las Vegas Strip’s Aladdin megaresort prompted the Aladdin to say for the first time Thursday that it may have to close just 13 months after its opening.

 

The Aladdin, the Strip’s newest megaresort, has been a prime candidate for bankruptcy for months and this has been widely reported. But the possible closure of such a huge business, which cost $1.2 billion, has 2,567 rooms and employs 2,600 people, was inconceivable just two weeks ago.

 

But then, so was the possibility terrorists would use commercial jetliners in kamikaze attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon — and trigger a huge downturn in the U.S. tourism and gambling industries.

 

While still considered unlikely by observers, the possibility of the Aladdin closing was raised in a report filed by the company Thursday afternoon with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The filing came one day after the Aladdin laid off 500 workers, or about one-sixth of its workforce.

 

“(Aladdin’s) cash on hand, together with cash projected to be generated from operating activities, is not sufficient to permit (Aladdin) to conduct business activities,” the SEC filing said. “(Aladdin) may be required to cease operating unless additional cash is infused into (the Aladdin).”

 

The Aladdin’s bankers are willing to consider extending more credit to the property, but only if the Aladdin first files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the filing said.

 

Aladdin officials declined to comment beyond the report. In a statement today, Aladdin minority owner London Clubs International said the filing was issued without the consent of the Aladdin’s board, which is controlled by LCI.

 

LCI’s stock went into free fall on the news, falling 53 percent to 6 pence on the London exchange today.

 

The Aladdin said it can only file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy with the support of both LCI and the Sommer Trust, the majority shareholder.

 

LCI spokesman Luke Morton declined to comment on whether LCI would support a bankruptcy filing by the Aladdin; Jack Sommer, principal of the Sommer Trust, could not be reached for comment.

 

However, LCI’s statement stated that its discussions with the Aladdin’s banks “have now focused on a financing solution which may require Aladdin Gaming to file a petition under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code” — suggesting LCI would be willing to agree to bankruptcy.

 

Relations between the two best online casino singapore owners appear to have completely broken down. But Larry Klatzkin, gaming analyst with Jeffries & Co., doesn’t believe Sommer or LCI would have anything to gain by blocking a bankruptcy.

 

“Either one could block it, but why would either party want it to close?” Klatzkin said. “It isn’t in the equity holders’ interest to let it shut down.”

 

If the Aladdin does go bankrupt, it would likely be the largest bankruptcy in the history of the Nevada gaming industry.

 

Companies holding multiple properties have gone bankrupt before, “but because construction costs were so high on this property, in terms of total debt, this is the largest gaming bankruptcy we’ve seen,” said Candace Carlyon, a Las Vegas bankruptcy attorney.

 

This possibility has been anticipated for months by analysts and observers, as the property has consistently been unable to produce enough cash flow to cover the payments on its $700 million-plus debt load.

 

In August, the Aladdin appeared close to finding a temporary solution to this problem. The equity holders and the banks agreed to a deal that would suspend principal payments on the Aladdin’s bank debt for one year — a move that would have saved the property nearly $18 million in the next year, and probably kept it out of bankruptcy in the near-term.

 

But in a move that stunned observers, Sommer apparently withdrew support for the new deal over the Labor Day weekend. With the failure of this deal, Sommer and LCI were required to immediately invest $8 million into the Aladdin — a “keep-well” payment designed to keep the Aladdin solvent.

 

But neither Sommer nor LCI had any money to invest. This put the Aladdin into default on its bank debt.

 

A second default, this on the Aladdin’s furniture and equipment lease financing, followed when the Aladdin failed to make a $4.3 million payment to General Electric Capital Corp. and General Motors Acceptance Corp. on Sept. 3.

 

The Aladdin was already an extremely precarious situation. Then came the terrorist strikes on New York and Washington Sept. 11 — attacks that have drastically reduced tourism to Las Vegas, and forced many casino operators to lay off workers.

 

“It is considered likely that this (the reduction of tourism business in Las Vegas) will significantly reduce revenues and profitability of the Aladdin in the short to medium term at the very least,” LCI’s statement said.

 

“It’s hit them like everyone else,” Klatzkin said. “Unfortunately, they didn’t have a lot of room to survive that.”

 

In this deteriorating environment, GE Capital and GMAC moved against the Aladdin. They presented the property with an ultimatum — pay the $4.3 million by Sept. 28, or face repossession of its furniture and equipment, including the resort’s slot machines.

 

If repossession of equipment is attempted, the Aladdin “likely would seek protection from its creditors under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code,” the Aladdin filing stated.

 

Under bankruptcy, Aladdin’s $75 million in annual debt payments would be suspended, making it far easier for the property to operate at a profit. And Aladdin’s bankers, led by the Bank of Nova Scotia, also appear willing to give the Aladdin additional cash to continue operating if it files for bankruptcy.

 

While Bank of Nova Scotia can use this to entice a bankruptcy, it would be difficult for the bankers to force it into bankruptcy, Carlyon said. That’s because only “undersecured” creditors can file a petition for an involuntary bankruptcy — and the bank debt is secured by the property itself.

 

“It would be fairly unusual for the secured creditors to take that position (that the Aladdin is worth less than the mortgage debt) this early in the case,” Carlyon said.

 

Three unsecured creditors with debt totaling $10,000 or more — such as trade creditors — could file such a petition, Carlyon said.

 

But Carlyon said she would be surprised if an involuntary petition even became necessary, given the fact that financing in bankruptcy appears available.

 

“I can’t believe that anyone would allow this property to close if there was a rational alternative,” Carlyon said. “What we’ve always understood … is that properties are worth more operating than closed. Even though we’re looking at a different world today than one week ago, it’s hard to believe that theory would be discarded in the case of the Aladdin.”

 

No matter what happens to the Aladdin, the adjoining Desert Passage mall would be unaffected. It is owned by a separate company, TrizecHahn Corp.

 

“No matter what happens at the Aladdin, we are fully open for business at Desert Passage, and will remain so,” said Andrew Blair, executive vice president and chief operating officer of TrizecHahn Development, the subsidiary that operates Desert Passage. “The hotel-casino is a very valuable property, in an exceptional location, and personally, I think it’s highly unlikely the hotel-casino will close under any scenario.”

Qiu Qiu Online

The Qiu Qiu Online Paramedic

One day, at a casino buffet, a man suddenly called out, “My son’s choking! He swallowed a quarter! Help! Please, anyone! Help!”

A man from a nearby table stood up and announced that he was quite idman Azərbaycan experienced at this sort of thing. He stepped over with almost no look of concern at all, wrapped his hands around the boy’s gonads, and squeezed. Out popped the quarter. The man then went back to his table as though nothing had happened.

“Thank you! Thank you!” the father cried. “Are you a paramedic?”

“No,” replied the man. “I work for the IRS.”

The Mute

A group from Chicago spent a weekend gambling in Las Vegas. One of the men on that trip won $100,000. He didn’t want anyone to know about it, so he decided not to return with the others, but took a later plane home — arriving back 3 a.m. He immediately went out to the backyard of his house, dug a hole and planted the money in it. The following morning he walked outside and found only an empty hole. He noticed footsteps leading from the hole to the house next door, which was owned by a deaf-mute. On the same street lived a professor who understood sign language and was a friend of the deaf man. Grabbing his pistol, the enraged man went to awaken the professor and dragged him to the deaf man’s house.

“You tell this guy that if he doesn’t give me back my $100,000 I’m going to kill him!” he screamed at the professor. The professor conveyed the message to his friend, and his friend replied in sign language, “I hid it in my backyard, underneath the cherry tree.”

The Qiu Qiu Online professor turned to the man with the gun and said, “He’s not going to tell you. He said he’d rather die first.”

The Most Direct Proposition

After a tourist had been served in the Las Vegas cocktail lounge, he beckoned the waitress back and said, “Miss, would y’all kindly give me a piece of ass?”

“Lord, that’s the most direct proposition I’ve ever had!” gasped the young lady. Then she smiled and added, “Sure, why not? It’s pretty slow here right now, so let’s go!”

When the pair returned half an hour later, the man sat down at the same table and the waitress asked, “Will there be anything else?”

“Yes,” replied the tourist. “Where ah come from in Alabama, we lack our bourbon ‘n watuh cold, so ah still need a piece uh ass for mah drink.”…

Poker Slot Online Tip of the Week

Wise rulers (poker players) and capable generals (poker smiths) are often able to defeat their enemies and achieve outstanding successes because they have prior information on the situation.

Emulate the strengths of opponents and use their weaknesses for self correction.

-Sun Zi’s art of war

Armies (poker players) at war (in a pot) usually fight in direct confrontation. But those (players) capable of springing a surprise will win.

– Sun Zi’s art of war

This week in Vegas was race week. Often this time of the year the action is fast and furious. Not only at the Nascar races but also on the tables. Often racers live in the fast lane and they gamble like it. They are dangerous and cause a lot of wrecks not only to the regular pro’s but to themselves. Poker is a race to see who can acquire the chips the fastest. Yes you will get bumps and grinds along the way but eventually if you play well and for long periods you shall get the cup. Today we shall discuss the first part of the game. Before the race begins you have to get to the track. In order for a player to win a pot he has to first enter the pot. That’s right he can win no chips unless he enters the pot. One of the most important concepts in Slot Online poker is to eliminate other players before the flop. A player not in the pot cannot beat you. Raising eliminates players and should be done before the flop. It is the simplest and most effective way to increase your odds and decrease your opponents odds. If they fold they have zero odds. I have done some calculations using poker probe in order to show you how raising effects the odds as opponents drop.

 

Poker Tip of the Week

 

Its Sampras verses Agassi in center court today. What makes one tennis player better then another top tennis player? Not much. Like you who have all the skills required to play the game of poker. What keeps you at the levels that you are right now? Sampras and Agassi hit the ball back and forth. Waiting for that critical moment. They try to outplay each other to no avail. They hit the ball to the back of the court only to be retrieved by their opponent. They hit it to the side of the court only for the ball to be returned. Now a drop shot only to be dug out and returned. They hit the ball with deception but still the ball keeps coming back. Then comes the critical moment. The mistake. Mistakes can cost you a point, a set and a match it depends on how many are made and when they are made. As in poker a mistake can cost you a half bet a whole bet and the pot. Losing half bets will hurt, whole bets make you play hours on end while not making money and mistakes in big pots make you play days for nothing. Take a look at these mistakes made by you or your opponents. Look for their weaknesses as well a yours. Roll them around in your mind. Memorize them. Try not to make them. Think deep and hard the way David Sklansky did when he thought of them and maybe tonight you may not sleep under a bridge.

UFA

The Decline of UFAPoker Tournaments in Nevada

We as tournament poker players blame casinos for the lack of interest in poker tournaments and maybe justifiably so. If the casino is unaware of our existence and assumes that we only frequent their establishments to play in poker tournaments and get buffet comps, then they are justified in thinking we are not a valuable customer. How many times have you heard “He’s only a poker player?” Most poker tournament players are not aware of the fact that tournaments in themselves generate very little, if any, revenue on their own. Some even lose money. I know most of you can’t believe that, but trust me, it is the truth. However, the casinos do benefit from poker tournaments in other areas, such as, pit play, gift shops, restaurants, slot machines, video poker machines, sports betting, shows, keno, not to mention the rooms we occupy. So how do we change their attitudes about the average poker tournament player? First they have to know where we spend money outside the poker room. This is very important. The way to do that is simple, use a “Players Tracking Card.”

 

I realize that many of you would like to remain anonymous and not have your wins and losses in other areas of the casino known. I also understand not wanting to be put on numerous mailing lists for fear of being pestered. Most of us just want to come and play UFA and be left alone. Well, we need to change the way we feel so the casinos will in turn value our presence. The only way to keep tournaments alive and well in Nevada is by corporate awareness. The “suits” upstairs in the executive offices must be made aware of our value. The Players Tracking Card can do this for us. We need to let the casinos know we exist and that we “crossover” into other areas of the casino. We can best do that by filling out a short form telling them who we are and why we are in the casino. After doing that, we need to use the card everywhere we spend money. That will show the casinos we are an asset to them and not a liability.

 

The length of the tournament determines how long players will be registered in the hotel. In my experience as a tournament player, I have spent anywhere from three days to three weeks in one casino. That’s a long time and during that time I’m likely to spend a lot of money in all areas of the casino, as we all do.

 

I personally do not want to see tournaments leave Nevada forever, so PLEASE use your Players Tracking Card. What more can you do? Take this information seriously and follow up. The benefits may surprise you and can only increase the more you use your card. Please identify yourself as a poker player so all of us will benefit. Let’s be heard, we deserve the same perks as other casino customers. Help us bring tournament poker back to Nevada where it belongs.

 

This article was inspired by Mike Gainey, Poker Room Manager at the Reno Hilton. Mike is the person responsible for the success of the Pot of Gold and the Cup of Gold poker tournaments at the Reno Hilton. Their successes helped him convince the executives to welcome the upcoming “World Poker Challenge” to be held in January, 2001. Motivated poker people like Mike Gainey make it possible for us to have poker tournaments, so let’s do our part. We can help make it a success and show our appreciation by using our Tracking Cards throughout the casino and making corporate aware of our value.

 

Wishing you the nuts, but not if I’m in the pot.
