Friday night was another big night for the 2009 World Championship of Online Poker hosted by togel hongkong . Three big events, including Event #23, a $300+$20 NL Freeze-Out, kicked off a big weekend for the tournament series. Event 23 was merely a $300,000 guaranteed tournament; however, over 2,600 players entered, creating an $802,800 prize pool! Entering the final table 9 relatively unknown players (along with host Hevad “RainKhan” Khan) were battling it out for a first place check of $126,441.01:
Seat 1: Moneyball16 (2898225 in chips)
Seat 2: arioli (586849 in chips)
Seat 3: Raidan909 (1410756 in chips)

Seat 9: IntheRED X2 (1907768 in chips)
“Moneyball16″ came into the final table with nearly a million chip lead over 2nd place “Str8$$$Homey”. Those chip leads proved to be quite useful, as the two biggest final table stacks made it all the way down to heads-up play. The tournament ended rather abruptly, as it took only 10 minutes to go from 4-handed play to the finish line. Below are the last three bust-out hands, heads-up stacks, and payouts.

Your skin is the largest organ in your body and you need to take care of it. Below are some helpful tips to help you with you’re the cleansing of your skin. For more tips and facts go to www.DermatologyCare.ca , you can even sing-up for a weekly email that will help you maintain, protect and improve your skin, hair and nails.
GENERAL SKIN CARE CLEANSING TIPS AND FACTS:
Take it off with the same care you used to put it on! It’s important to take the time to thoroughly remove all makeup before going to bed to avoid breakouts and the possibility of an allergic reaction.
The Right Way to Dry Your Face:
Dry your face by patting it gently with a towel. Rubbing it briskly may irritate your skin and make it prone to dryness, redness or breakouts.
Rinse it Off:
Rinse well! After washing your skin, make sure you thoroughly rinse off all of the cleanser. If any is left on your skin, it may continue to cleanse, which can cause dryness or irritation.
Why Use a Skin Cleanser?:
Tap water alone will only remove around 65% of the dirt and oil on your skin. That’s why skin cleansers were created. They work as emulsifiers to remove dirt, excess natural skin oils (called sebum), bacteria, cosmetics and exfoliated surface skin cells. To get the most out of your cleanser, choose one that’s appropriate for your skin type like oily, dry or normal.
Use The Right Temperature:
Not too hot, not too cold. Use tepid water when washing your face. Water that’s too hot can burn your skin or cause broken capillaries. Water that’s too cold can cause the blood vessels to open excessively in an attempt to warm up your skin. Lukewarm water is the best choice.

The High Stakes action has slowed down in recent weeks with players like Tom “durrrr” Dwan and Patrik Antonius absent from the big, online games. However, this doesn’t mean that the tables have been totally vacant. Players like Ziigmund and Brian Hastings have been going at it this week at the $500/$1000 Pot-Limit Omaha tables on Full Tilt Poker. Brian Hastings has been suffering quite the downswing this year. Information about his recent downswing can be found here: Brian Townsend Facing Massive Downswing.
The bad luck continues for Hastings as can be seen in last week’s biggest pot in online poker. Ziigmund raised on the button to $3,000 with AhQc7d5c and was three-bet to $9,000 by Hastings’ double-suited AsJh6h4s. Ziigmund made the call and saw the Jd4c2h flop come down. This flop gave him a gutshot straight draw while giving Hastings two-pair, jacks and fours. Ziigmund check-called Hastings’ $13,000 bet and hit a pair of aces & a flush draw on the Ac river. Unfortunately for him, Hastings also hit the ace, giving him top two-pair. Ziigmund check-raised Hastings all-in and Hastings quickly called. The pot inflated to $208,999. Ziigmund was looking for any non-jack club or three to help him improve. His wish was granted on the turn when the 9c hit, giving him the pot and elongating Hastings’ downswing.
The next largest pot of last week happened during the same session between Ziigmund and Hastings. With effective stacks of $200,000 and Ziigmund on the button, he would raise to $3,000 with his AsAc9h6h and Hastings would flat. The AdQd5s flop was huge for Ziigmund, giving him a set of aces. Hastings check-called a pot-sized bet of $6,000 and saw the Qc turn drop. Ziigmund had a full-house and was almost fearless in his betting as Hastings check-called another pot-sized bet. A Js landed on the river. Again, Hastings check-called a pot-sized bet of $54,000. He saw the news of the full house and mucked his hand. The $161,999.50 pot was Ziigmund’s.
The session, however, was not all Ziigmund’s. Hastings also won a huge pot in …
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 …
Bluffing is poker’s magic elixir. It’s the sleight-of-hand where high art and drama reside. It’s the place where myths are made. After all, what’s a western movie without a poker scene with one player trying to bluff another out of a big pot? This is the first of a four-part series on bluffing. Not only will we show you how, when, and why to bluff, we’ll also tell you about some of the most famous bluffs in poker history.
To those who do not play poker, or who have only a nodding acquaintance with it, bluffing is where they focus most of their attention when they think about the game.
Does this conversation ring a bell?
Non-Player: “You’re a professional poker player? Wow; you must have a real poker face.”
Professional Poker Player: “Why do you say that?”
NP: “Don’t you need a poker face because you have to bluff all the time?”
PPP: “Actually, bluffing is only a small part of the game, and good players don’t really bluff that often.”
NP: “Hmmmmmmm, It’s not like that in the movies.”
PPP: [shrugging his shoulders with the resigned weariness of one who’s had similar conversations far too many times] “Well, few things really are.”
What Is Bluffing, Anyway?
Ask most poker players to define bluffing and they’ll tell you about betting a weak hand with the hope of driving other players out of the pot. After all, without bluffing, poker would be a boring game. Bets would be made, and the Unique Casino best hand would win. Always.
Since the cards figure to break even in the long run, without the possibility that someone is bluffing each player would have the same expectation, and when all was said and done, no one would win any money.
But there are winning players and those who lose most of the time.. And it’s often bluffing ¾ or more precisely the possibility that one might be bluffing ¾ that goes a long way toward separating the wheat from the chaff. Bluffing, …

With $13.7 Trillion in globally negative yielding debt, we are treading on new territory, never previously seen by humanity … ever, in commerce.
Negative yielding debt? Imagine. Would you lend $100,000 to anyone – even family – if the interest rate meant, instead of you receiving money, or being zero (aka family), that every month you (the “Lender”) had to pay the borrower, more money? Think about that! You lend someone, your hard earned dollars and then, month after month, instead of making a return on your money, you have to pay out more money? Insanity.
This alone reflects the failing of the Western Central banking system; and has never previously been witnessed in 5000 years of recorded commerce; and not enough people are talking about it – period.
Like a tsunami of capital, this $13.7Trn in negative yielding debt will – and very soon – seek out a return; and, as we speak, has already begun this process of, ebbing out of the countries whose government bonds presently provide this negative yield (Japan, Germany, France, Europe).
If one wants to really understand from more than just a surface opinion on why the recent rally of crypto, one need only understand this very under-reported tidbit of data/knowledge. A tsunami of capital, like a fire-hose, will find its way to other investments – it’s that simple. And while historically, precious metals juniors, cannabis stocks, crypto, etc. has been seen as a more “risky” investment, nothing is more risky than a guaranteed negative yield, like this government debt.
Lets be honest, countries like Japan, which have recently adopted Ripple in a big way, are already very well aware of such crisis’ – even though general market may not be. Proof: Negative interest rates in Japan have driven up safe (physical vaults) sales up to 1000% of previous year sales (year after year). Citizens are doing whatever they can to put their wealth somewhere and avoid paying bank fees. Which guarantees the banks are scrambling to figure out how to reduce such fees; hence why block-chain is so so appealing. Not to mention, …
from Golden Palace – John A. of the United Kingdom now holds the record for winning the largest-ever online jackpot, with an unprecedented windfall of $339,300.19 while gambling at Golden Palace Online Casino. Since the introduction of Golden Palace’s Progressive Caribbean Poker several months ago, the game’s popularity has grown steadily, propelling the jackpot upward until it was finally won with a Royal Flush.
The phenomenal jackpot win has both the casino and the player equally excited. Golden Palace received an elated message from John A. shortly afterwards, where he stated, “I am still coming to terms with a fantastic experience, and still find it hard to believe that I have won that amount of money.”
The progressive-jackpot Caribbean Poker is only 1 of 40 games that the casino offers, including 6 progressive slot machine games, and a wide variety of traditional casino table games. The software includes a “play for fun” mode that allows users to test drive their software before playing for real money. Gamers can download this software from the Internet for free, 24 hours a day.
Online gambling is experiencing a huge surge in Togel Singapore popularity, with projected revenues worldwide in the billions. The new trend in wagering is not only a benefit to casino owners, but players such as John A. who are now walking away with increasingly sizable winnings.
After netting his huge win, he was quick to thank the casino himself, saying “This win just proves I made the right choice.”
Net Gambling Opponents Testify Before Committee
A U.S. House subcommittee on Tuesday was urged to pull the plug on online gambling for the second time in less than two weeks.
The U.S. House Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held hearings earlier this month to address the financial concerns associated with online gambling. At that time, credit card company Visa argued that it was not its responsibility to police online gambling.
Today’s testimony saw some of the most vocal opponents of Internet wagering take the stage to argue that online gambling seriously threatens players and their finances.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte …
