This year’s World Championship of Online Poker is in full swing at keluar sgp , with players from around the globe competing for awesome prize pools in exciting tournaments. We’re fast-approaching the halfway mark of the series, so a huge amount of cash has already been won but, more importantly, there’s also a lot of it up for grabs. Event 28 wrapped up earlier this week, and the lucky winner to walk away with the number one spot was Schildy1984 of Austria, who received $206,280 for a job well done.
The World Championship of Online Poker is pretty much exactly what the name suggests. It can be seen as the internet’s answer to the World Series of Poker, and the PokerStars hosted series is by far and away the largest such online series around. This 2011 series boasts a massive combined guaranteed prize pool of $30,000,000, which is much larger than many were expecting given the withdrawal of PokerStars from the US market. The combined prize pool is spread over 62 events this year, which offer a great variety so players of any game should be able to find a tournament they’ll love.
Event 28 was one of the more standard formats, a simple No Limit Holdem tournament with no surprises. The buy-in was respectable at $1,000, and 1146 players decided to register and take their shot at the money. This many contestants lead to an almost doubling of the prizepool from its guaranteed $600,000 to the final figure of $1,146,000, to be divided among the top 135 players, with the winner allocated over $200,000. The event dragged on over two days before finally finishing less than an hour into September 15th.
After nearly two days of grueling button clicking and close decisions, the tournament got down to just three entrants, two players from Austria and one from neighboring Australia. The Australian player, delaney_kid, was Schildy1984′s first casualty, and was sent to the rail in third place. This gave Schildy1984 a slightly more than 3:2 chip lead against fellow countryman TheFan83 as Heads Up play commenced. While …
It is said that the best athletes play with ice water in their veins. They keep their emotions in check, always remain cool, and stick to the gameplan. It is true for sports and it is also true for the game of togel hongkong hari ini . When playing blackjack, it important to check your emotions at the door, go in with an even head, and stick to blackjack basic strategy. Doing otherwise, allowing your emotions to affect your decisions will only result in you giving more money to the house.
Blackjack is a game that is a combination of skill and chance. Luck is involved in which cards you and the dealer are dealt. The skill is in determining what move to make. Unlike many games, though, emotions cannot help you. Wanting to win the hand more than your opponent won’t help you. Being angry won’t help you. Blackjack is a game of odds and basic strategy was developed to give players the best odds of winning. The best strategy is to memorize basic strategy and stick to it, no matter what happens. In the long run, sticking with the strategy will be the most beneficial to you.
It’s not easy to do, though. Often, a player loses several hands in a row, thinks about the money that they’ve lost, and then decides that, in order to make their money back, they should start betting larger amounts. The thinking is that since they lost several hands in a row, they are now due for a winning streak, and by increasing the wager, they will make their money back faster. There’s a word for people who employ this strategy: broke.
Losing several hands in a row doesn’t increase your odds of winning the next hand. Whether or not you win is determined by 3 factors: what cards you are dealt, what cards the dealer is dealt, and what decisions you make. The first 2 factors are completely random and beyond your control. Therefore, there is no way a shift in betting strategy can affect the …
The Best of Video Poker Times is a collection of some of the better articles from the bi-monthly Video Poker Times magazine published from 1993 to 1996. For those people seriously interested in playing video poker to win, this periodical is an important source of strategy, updated information, and bankroll advice to help the VP professional stay on top of their game and the serious non-professional get the best edge possible.
The book is divided into several sections. The first covers game strategies. Many games are covered here with pay schedules both above and below 100% payback. Some of these games are unavailable at the present time, but if these pay tables ever show up again, and every now and then they do, the savvy player will be ready. The pay tables listed here do not include the most popular games, like full pay Jacks or Better or full pay Deuces Wild, because those strategies are listed in many places. They are also not nearly as comprehensive as Frome’s Winning Strategies for Video Poker, but there are some games listed here I have not seen elsewhere.
The second section covers bankroll considerations. This includes articles on evaluating a game’s volatility, risk of ruin, bankroll requirements, etc.. These articles are pretty good, but a lot of this information is discussed in other places. Some of this information is fresh, but much of it isn’t.
The third section is titled “Miscellaneous Articles” and include good articles suggesting that VP professionals not act like jerks and bleed good games dry. It’s important that the casinos make money off the machines that pay back better than 100% or they’ll get pulled from the floor. This also means encouraging non-professionals to play (and lose money at) these games. Similarly, there are other good articles on the cost of errors and the future of video poker.
However, there are some other articles I don’t think are very good, like those suggesting that certain hands are more likely to follow other hands than one would expect from random chance. The human …
