Atlantic City discards automated poker Online Betting games

 

 

It seems like the market’s response to Atlantic City’s huge fore-front experiment was a very negative one. This involved cutting out dealers & chips, and then replacing them with automated poker games.

 

The Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino has had to remove their 14 automated poker tables after experimenting them out for the past few months. The process was that the electronic games would automatically shuffle and deal video-type cards. These cards would appear on a large display screen at the centre of the table. Every player at the table had a smaller-sized display screen equipped with the sensor controls to place further bets, to call or to fold.

 

The aim of these automated tables was to attract the younger generation of gamblers out there but this didn’t quite succeed. For example, poker player Ira Cohen from Brooklyn New York, says he much prefers a live environment with real dealers and the human friendly atmosphere they generate. Meanwhile the casino union clubs held the fear that the automated table games could have increased dealer layoffs.

Terms and Definitions for sports betting

While luck may be a deciding factor in the outcome of any single game, and will inevitably go against you on occasion, it will balance out in the long run. Being a consistent winner in sports betting is not about luck but whether you are prepared to invest the time and effort to become knowledgeable about the sports you bet on, whether you can weigh all the factors in a cool, objective fashion, and whether you adopt a consistent, disciplined, long-term approach to your betting. Do all these and you will come out a winner. Remember, it’s you against the oddsmaker, not the bookmaker.

The bookmaker is simply a middle-man who operates on a small profit margin and, ideally he likes to see half the money wagered on one team and half on the other, assuring him of a profit. If too much of the money goes on one team, the bookmaker will move the line or pointspread to encourage bets on the other team in an effort to balance his book. The person you are attempting to beat is the oddsmaker and his views on each team’s chances. Just by flipping a coin you will be right 50 percent of the time. At odds of 10/11 only 52.4 percent of your bets have to win for you to overcome the bookmaker’s profit and break even, so you only need a very small edge to become a winner. Do your homework and bet selectively. 55% winning bets is definitely achievable and 60-65% is a realistic target. At those levels you will have an extremely profitable and enjoyable hobby.

Neteller founder Lawrence pleads guilty in Togel Singapore gambling case

 

 

Stephen Lawrence, the other NETeller founder pleads guilty in the illegal gambling case filed against it by US attorneys.

 

A founder of payment processor NETeller pleaded Togel Singapore guilty on Friday to a conspiracy charge over the handling of billions of dollars in illegal gambling proceeds.

 

Stephen Lawrence, 47, during a hearing before U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel in Manhattan, also agreed to cooperate with the government.

 

Lawrence faces a maximum sentence of five years on the conspiracy charge for his role in the operation of the payment processor.

 

Lawrence and co-founder John Lefebvre, who started the company in 1999, were first charged in January with conspiring to transfer funds with the intent to promote illegal gambling.

 

NETeller quit the United States in January, abandoning two-thirds of its business after authorities arrested the two founders.

 

“Mr. Lawrence is very glad to have this episode over and looks forward to moving on to the next stage of his life,” attorney Peter Neiman said after the hearing.

 

Castel allowed Lawrence to travel within the United States as well as to Canada and the Bahamas. He set a sentencing date for October 29.

 

Doctors Calls For Probe on Video Game Health Effects

 

The American Medical Association has called for more research into the public health risks of video games, but said it would let the American Psychiatric Association and other experts decide whether video game addiction should be designated a mental illness.

 

Dr. Ronald Davis, president of the AMA said that the organisation remained concerned about the behavioural, health and societal effects of video game overuse.

 

“To the extent that a game is controlling someone’s behaviours and taking over their daily life, then you are talking about a compulsive …

POKER PRO VANESSA ROUSSO MAKES “FINAL TOGEL TABLE” ON CBS’ ‘BIG BROTHER’

 

 

Poker star Vanessa Rousso qualifies for final three on CBS’ ‘Big Brother’. The 17th season of Big Brother began with 17 competitors. Now, Rousso is one of three remaining players left in the House on CBS’ popular reality tv/game show ‘Big Brother’. She will win $500,000 if she survives one more elimination round on Sunday and then wins a vote from players previously ousted from the game.

 

Before the show began airing on June 24, Rousso talked about what advantages she had in the game.

 

“I’m used to having to strategize as people are eliminated, and in poker you have to read people,” Rousso said in an interview with CBS.

 

Rousso, 32, graduated from Duke University in 2 1/2 years and studied game theory en route to an economics degree before heading to the University of Miami for law school. But along the way, she began playing poker, building up a bankroll at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood. She finished seventh in a 2006 World Poker Tour event in Las Vegas, winning $263,625 and finishing in the money 16 times in World Series of Poker events.

 

While she has been on the brink of elimination on a few different occasions, she has managed to battle her way back into contention. Earlier this week, Rousso pulled what many are calling one of the biggest blind sides in BB history. Vanessa orchestrated a plan where fellow competitor Austin would think he was safe from elimination yet he would end up going home – a move that Vanessa had hoped would help her make the finals – which she has.

 

A victory for the Florida native would be more than the third largest score of her poker career. She has won more …
