Time to regulate online Rubah4d gambling?



People who never bet on sports make an exception this time of year. Something about the NCAA basketball tournament–maybe it’s the appeal of filling out those brackets and tracking their progress each day–brings out the gambler in all of us. But if some members of Congress get their way, we won’t be able to place any of those bets online.


The proposed Internet Gambling Protection Act would prohibit using the Internet to operate a gaming business. But trying to shut down a multibillion-dollar industry with consumer demand that includes an estimated 8 million Americans annually is an empty legislative effort. Instead of outlawing it, Congress should regulate it.


Online gambling is now a $12 billion-a-year industry. Americans anted up more than $500 million to bet on this year’s Super Bowl online, an increase of more than 12 percent from last year and more than five times the amount wagered through Nevada casinos. Overall, Americans wagered nearly $6 billion online in 2005, compared with about $1.5 billion in 2001.


The U.S. government says the consumers who placed these Rubah4d bets are in violation of the Wire Act, which was originally aimed at organized crime and sought to prevent gambling businesses from operating by phone in states where it was otherwise illegal to gamble.


This law shouldn’t be applied to Internet betting. No case law or statute clearly defines where Internet bets are taking place. BetOnSports, for example, is based in Costa Rica. Our customers can place bets from anywhere that has an Internet connection. In part because of this ambiguity, no one has been prosecuted for online betting under the law.


Enforcing this outdated law, or passing new legislation, would be foolish at best and a violation of privacy and individual freedom at worst. …

Bingo777An online bingo player has scooped a massive $50,000 jackpot… from her last dollar!


After depositing $50 in Bingo in her favorite bingo site, Bingo777, Christine P. from Tennessee was having a ball playing her usual games. After a while and an unlucky losing streak she was down to her last dollar. Not disheartened she played on. What resulted will stay with Christine for the rest of her life as her last dollar scooped up a huge $50,000 prize.


During the Mega Ball game, Christine’s luck turned from cold to red hot as she hit the jackpot.’s manager, Adam Sutherland, said “We’re really happy to have given Christine so much bang for her buck, literally! Turning a single dollar into 50,000 isn’t exactly the sort of thing you see every day!”

Indeed it’s not. What’s even more remarkable, was that her last dollar was not even hers! Christine earned her $1 by playing at Bingo777 enough to win it as a comp’ prize. After playing through her $50 deposit, she cashed in the comp’ and went back to try one more time.


Christine has yet to comment on her amazing good fortune. We think it may take a while for her to recover enough to do so.

The Future of Mobile Gaming

Ban sees the future of real money gaming as an opportunity for him, and his company. “That [real money mobile gaming] is something that we are always looking to do. Obviously, right now from a legal perspective, in the US its just not doable, but as we branch out internationally, its an angle for the game that we would love to get into, its something that we could do very easily.”

The question becomes what about the good ol US of A? Obviously, the issue of internet gaming has been a sticky one these past couple years. The mobile arena, however, seems a little more cut and dried, as carriers are subject to local laws and regulations. What about a mobile service offering some kind of offshore gaming application – Is this possible? “In the US, it is illegal to be running any type of interstate gaming””We’re not in that space, and we have no plans today to be in that space”. “I don’t think the carriers are going to touch it, because it is illegal, and they are a highly regulated industry” says Babbs. Ban tends to agree “Gambling is a sensitive subject…not only to carriers, but to device manufacturers and to large networks…it’s a little tricky to get around sometimes”.

Infospace has come up with a value solution where cash does not change hands, but the more skilled players can be rewarded with prizes that are donated via sponsors. Prizes range from T-shirts to gift cards, which spend like cash. pengeluaran hk plus for prizes is Infospace’s primary poker offering. “First of all, we wanted to create something that didn’t exist in the mobile realm at all, which is a mobile multi player tournament environment where people compete against each other for prizes.” Thus far, Babbs is pleased …

Advanced Poker Odds Calculations – Part 2 on



In the last post, I covered two mathematical formulas useful for calculating advanced odds for poker hands – Texas Hold’em in particular. That post covered the basics. Let’s get in to some more details. (Please re-read the previous post before continuing, as the latter-half of this post is fairly math-dense.)


There are 10 categories of poker hands. They are, from highest value to lowest:


(1) Royal flush = Ace through 10 in the same suit)

(2) Straight flush = Five consecutive cards in the same suit

(3) Four of a kind = Four cards of the same value

(4) Full house = Three of a kind plus a pair

(5) Flush = Five consecutive cards in value, any suit

(6) Straight = Five cards of the same suit, no sequence necessary

(7) Three of a kind = Three cards of the same value, any suit

(8) Two pair = One pair of one card value, and another pair of another value.

(9) One pair = Two of a kind

(10) No pair


These are the poker hands that can be dealt from a single deck of 52 cards. These are just as applicable to Texas Hold’em as other forms of poker. Let’s have a look at some of the total possible unique hands for each category. Recall from the last post that there are 2,598,960 unique 5-card hands possible from a standard deck of 52, where order of cards does not matter.


Royal Flush

Based on the definition, there can only be 4 possible royal flush hands because there are only four suits in a deck. These are very rare, obviously. The odds of being dealt 5 straight cards to form a flush are 4/2,598,960 =~ 1/650,000. [Note: these apply to the scenario where …

Boomtowns to Poker Blogs – Situs Judi QQOnline Terpercaya



My friends and I play every week, sometimes many times a week. A revolving cast of (young, male) characters show up at the games. We are all terrible. Everybody adopts a different persona. I am nearly silent during the game, hoping to project an image of cool rival examination and categorization of everyone else’s Situs Judi QQOnline Terpercayareactions — a masterful command of the art of the “read.” The reality is rather different. Usually I’m just thinking about how hungry I am, or I’m distracted by the TV. But the reality doesn’t matter.


One guy, Jesse, is known for buying in, busting out and repeating the cycle multiple times in the course of one night’s action, without giving the matter a second thought. He cheerfully admits that he is down several hundred dollars since he began playing, and he never seems too out of sorts about it, but sometimes I picture him alone, at home, having crises of conscience, staring mournfully at his empty wallet and shaking his head wordlessly.


A few of us have higher ambitions for our game, partly stirred by an increased diet of televised poker. Although my friend Jake Collins Situs Judi QQOnline Terpercayahad only rarely played before this summer, he is now set on becoming a professional player. I spent several weeks with him this summer in and out of various West Coast motels, where the only consistent televised entertainment we could find was poker tournaments. Thus stoked, Collins is taking a scientific approach to his play, keeping detailed charts and notebooks on his play patterns; despite real progress, he knows he’s got a long way to go before he can shoot with the big guns. He speaks with hushed admiration of professional players’ Svengali-like …

Represent – The Tao of Texas Hold’em? – Game Theory



In his book, Phil Hellmuth’s Texas Hold’Em (published by Collins, and adapted from Play Poker Like the Pros“>Play Poker Like the Pros), Phil Hellmuth talks about the 5 animals that most poker players seem to fall into, in terms of playing behaviour. Being new to Texas Hold’em, I’m not sure yet if I fully subscribe to this theory, but it seems to make sense.


His five poker animal types, that he feels are the most common, are the eagle, mouse, elephant, jackal and lion. I won’t get into the nuances of each. Suffice it to say that each animal has its own playing (that is, betting) behaviour. Some are more predictible than others. The two that stand out for me are the mouse and the jackal. The mouse only raises on certain hands – fear the mouse’s raise. The jackal raises on everything, perpetually obscuring their hand, but becoming something like the class clown


The more I play Texas Hold’Em, and the more I read about it, it occurs to me that if you want to do really well, you not only have to learn to represent (targeted bluffing) certain hands, you also have to represent different animals in different games.


Novelist Stephen R. Donaldson wrote a series of books based on Wagner’s famous opera, The Rings of the Nibulungen, about a set of characters who unwittingly swap their roles during the course of the story. I’m putting forth the theory that you have to do something similar in Texas Hold’Em (maybe even all types of poker), and change your “animal”, but be in control of the change.


Using a similar analogy, consider the martial art of Kung Fu. There are several basic types, all of which are based on animals and their specific …

,,Nije bitno koliko dajemo, već s koliko ljubavi dajemo” Majka Tereza                               Važan dio naše misije je i služenje i davanje, a kroz Dana program                                                                   

želimo potaknuti i inspirirati i vas da nam se pridružite u davanju i pomaganju onima u potrebi.                                      Dana na Pali jeziku znači dar od srca.To je praksa velikodušnosti, svaki oblik davanja, donacije i pomoći pojedincu, grupi ljudi (u stresu i potrebi) ili široj zajednici koji podržava vlastitu praksu davanja.Može biti i u formi filantropskog javnog projekta koji osnažuje i pomaže mnogima.To je bezuvjetno davanje bez očekivanja bilo čega za uzvrat, davanje iz srca.

Što je to što Vi imate za dati, a može pomoći drugima? Znanje?  Vrijeme? Savjet? Nadu? Sposobnost organiziranja ili vođenja? Osmjeh? Ljubav? Novac? Zagrljaj?

Dobrobiti davanja

Razvio sam metodologiju koja se koristi u mnogim školama diljem Europe. To je biocentrično obrazovanje. Cilj ovih škola je “pripremiti studente za izazove trećeg tisućljeća”. Biocentrično obrazovanje je poduka življenja. Stavlja život u središte i podučava kroz iskustvo, što mi nazivamo VIVENCIJA. Biocentrično obrazovanje daje životu središnje mjesto, daje mu prioritet.


TORO: „Biodanza sadrži oko 250 vježbi i plesova čija je svrha aktiviranje ljudskih pokreta na harmoničan i integrativan način. U Biodanzi integriramo naše motoričke disociranosti koje su rezultat disocirane kulture kako bismo vratili tijelo u stanje sklada. Pri tome integriramo tri podsustava koji upravljaju našim tjelesnim sustavom: živčani, endokrini i imunološki.“

Započinjemo slušanjem pjesme, odgovaranjem kroz pokret, buđenjem naše percepcije kroz ples ispunjen emocijama. Pokreti postaju organizirani čime i živčani putevi u našem mozgu postaju organizirani.

TORO: „Kada osoba primi vanjski podražaj, to može mobilizirati njeno tijelo i aktivnosti, na taj način nastaje VIVENCIJA integrativni proces. Mnoge bolesti tijela proizvod su toksičkih aspekata našeg postojanja, našeg životnog stila. Ono što Biodanza čini kroz svoje vježbe i plesove jest poticanje VIVENCIJE.“


TORO: „Naša se civilizacija jadno ponaša. Mi ljudi moramo se još puno razvijati. Ubijamo iz “duhovnih” razloga. Vrednujemo inteligenciju iznad ljubavi…. Svijet koji upoznajemo kroz inteligenciju je ograničen. Descartes kaže: “Mislim, dakle jesam”. Trebamo reći: “Volim, dakle jesam”. Kada volim, znam da postojim.
