ESPN Coverage of the World Series of QQWIN99

 

Does anyone else wish the ESPN would cover Poker! from the World Series of QQWIN99 and not the stupid crap they tend to focus on. It’s like covering the World Cup by doing features on the drunk hooligans with their chests painted during the play of the match.

Prime example: the hour on Hevad Khan this week. You think these players don’t know if they act whacko they will get air time? Did you notice in his private interview he was calm, relaxed and articulate. So why did ESPN choose to feature him? Do they think they will get more viewers for the “entertainment” value of this nonsense? They know they have the true poker fans trapped, we have no other way to see the minimal poker they actually cover. But I ask again: At the World Series of Poker, Why not cover poker!

And while I am on the subject of ESPN and the World Series, when are they going to dump Norman Chad? Do we need more lame jokes about his ex-wifes? Do we need to hear: “A queen and a queen only” again? How about someone who knows a thing or two about poker and will actually offer that to the viewers instead of some lame ass line about himself.

It’s about poker. Why doesn’t ESPN get that? They don’t bastardize the coverage of other sports like this. I watch the coverage to see poker. Let me repeat–it’s about the poker!

Are Hasil HK Hari Ini Students Lazy?

 

We’ve heard it all before, about how all students are lazy and are out to get drunk as much as possible and lie in bed for as long as possible. But are Hasil HK Hari Ini students really that lazy? Although thinking about it this statement pretty much hits the nail on the head, I feel that students don’t get as much credit for the work that gets done in lectures and behind closed doors. When people think about students, they will normally think of them as being lazy, tax-dodging, drunk, poor and numerous other flatteringly descriptive words, but theres never really much said about the work that gets done when needs be or the extra effort in other things outside Uni, such as sports and societies.

Lets not forget the real effort it takes to go to 9am lectures after a heavy night drinking. The students that make these lectures are the true warriors that have the exceptional will power to fight through sickening hangovers whilst still being half-cut at the same time. Thats determination right there. Even so, the 10am and later lectures can still be a big struggle to get to and require ten times the amount of effort than would be normally needed if you were not drinking the night before. So the people that accidentally mix both their social lives with lectures and still manage make it work, really can’t be all that lazy with all the effort that is put in.

Furthermore, most people tend to overlook the fact that students are actually studying at some point in between their drinking and tax-dodging endeavours. You have to have a certain level of ability to be in University in the first place, and none of the courses can really be called all that easy. …

Tiffany Michelle and hk prize News End Dispute

 

Undoubtedly the biggest scandal to emerge from this year’s World Series was the saga of Tiffany Michelle. The former hk prize News employee became embroiled in a dispute with the site after seemingly backing out of a deal that involved Poker News staking her for the main event. After sporting the Poker News logo for the majority of the tournament, in the latter stages she also donned more prominent Ultimate Bet attire – a decision met with anger by Tony G, the owner of Poker News.

Michelle was the last remaining woman in the main event, and after starting with a promising chip count on Day 7 looked a good bet to make the final table. Having worked for Poker News as both a reporter and presenter she was familiar with the furor of the poker media and was ideally placed to move into the spotlight. Her undoubted aesthetic appeal as well as an intelligent and approachable demeanor made her the most marketable and media friendly face left in the tournament.

The decision to sponsor Tiffany into the main event was made at a Poker News party held at the Bellagio. Jeff Lisandro, a well known cash game pro, convinced Tony G that they should both buy her into the event, splitting the costs $4k/$6k. In return for his larger cut Tony asked that Tiffany wear clothes to promote Poker News and that he should retain full endorsement rights. An agreement was reached and a contract drawn up, a generally unremarkable event.

Tony G, however, is an astute businessman and the fruits of his investment seemed to have come good as Michelle progressed deeper and deeper into the main event, slowly creeping into the spotlight. As agents began to swarm, Tony G took the opportunity to arrange a deal …

The Blockchain Race: Turkish Digital Lira to Finish Testing in 2020

 

The Turkish administration aims to complete testing their national digital currency (CBDC) in 2020 after directions given by the countries president Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the presidential program published on 3 November according to a document published yesterday by Resmi Gazete.

Turkey’s objective by launching a digital currency is to create a better infrastructure as the document notes:

“The main objective is to establish a financial sector with a strong institutional structure that can respond to the financing needs of the real bitcoin dice  sector at a low cost, offer different financial instruments to a wide investor base through reliable institutions and support Istanbul’s goal of becoming an attractive global financial center.”

Turkey is a country where cryptocurrencies are very popular and it is clearly visible on localbitcoins chart volume. In part, this interest comes because of the instability of the local currency which has gone down by more than 70% only in the last few years.

After China interest in Blockchain and discussions in the U.S. Congress about Libra, other countries are in a race to compete in the blockchain innovation.

It is strange how things change so fast. Only in a decade, governments went from laughing at the idea of bitcoin into trying to copy it for their central bank currency.

The question now is, what will happen in the next 10 years?

Feel free to post your opinion in the comments below.

LibraCoin returns as a topic in the main media. All thanks to the actions of regulatory authorities for counteracting monopolistic practices in the European Commission, which sent a special questionnaire, thanks to which they want to determine whether LibraCoin is an anti-competitive project.

The information was provided to the public by Bloomberg. According to a portal article, the Commission sent the questionnaire in August …

Schildy1984 wins keluar sgp WCOOP Event 28

 

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.

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 …

Russian Legal Translation

Translation Company UK

Russian is an important language primarily spoken in Russia, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. It is also spoken unofficially by millions of people in Ukraine, Moldova, Latvia, Turkmenistan, and Estonia.

 

As a result, Russian is the largest native language in Europe with 160 million speakers. This also makes it the 8th most spoken language in the world.

 

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian legal system is generally considered to by a civil law system.  However, the socialist influences of communism and the political influences post communism have made a strong imprint on Russia’s legal system.  Combined with early Byzantine influences, this means that Russian law is in many ways very different from European civil codes.

 

Driven largely by the increase in International trade and investment in Russia, in the last decade we have seen a dramatic increase in the amount of Russian translation that we are asked to undertake.

 

Producing legal translations can be both complex and challenging. Therefore it is imperative to use professionally trained Russian linguists with the adequate knowledge and experience.

Understanding Island Slot Online Time

Slot Online

In a past life, I was the editor of a consumer publication that covered Internet gambling and I was consequently faced with the task of fielding complaints from disgruntled Net bettors. Nearly every complainer believed he was being ripped off, and most of those who believed they were getting ripped off thought so because they requested payment and did not receive it. The good news for the consumer is that most of the complaints were resolved.

But, what gives? Why so many mistaken victims?

When you walk into a sportsbook or a betting shop with a betting receipt and request payment on a winning bet, you receive it promptly. When you come up big playing blackjack or craps, you can expect to walk out of the casino with cash in your wallet. Even when you request payment for a winning telephone wager, you know that your account will be credited immediately and that you’ll have relatively quick access to your winnings.

Enter the era of Internet gambling. They say this Internet thing is all about convenience, but you’d be surprised how inconvenient it can be when it comes to getting your money.

Most Internet gambling services are operated out of the Caribbean, and many inexperienced Net bettors don’t quite understand that things don’t always move along quickly there.

Despite advancements in payment processing technology, winnings are still most often paid out via bank wires, money transfer services or personal checks. That means it’s up to the folks that run the site to either issue and mail a check or prompt their bank to wire the money. But the thing is, when those wheels get rolling on the islands, they don’t always roll quickly.

When you visit the islands, you leave concepts like haste and urgency behind, and this relaxed mentality …

Using Citadel to Fund Your Casino Account

A couple days ago a press release arrived in my Inbox mentioning yet another casino that had partnered with Citadel Commerce (www.citadelcommerce.com) to offer players yet another deposit alternative. Financing options are always a worthy topic here at WINNERonline.com so … what exactly is Citadel Commerce anyway?

 

Based just outside of Vancouver, Canada, Citadel Commerce Corp. offers an electronic checking system that allows players to transfer money from their bank checking account to a casino’s e-cash system by writing an e-check. “Within just 5 minutes you can open your Citadel account, deposit your funds and get into the action in the Casino,” says the press release.

 

Unlike wire transfers and direct deposits which can take several days –or longer– Citadel’s electronic checking system boasts a worst-case scenario of 72 hours though typical times are reported as being a few hours or less. Obviously that’s a step in the right direction.

 

Ok, so who can use Citadel? Citadel is currently available to US resident users with US Dollar …

In hindsight, the Situs Qq Euros were easy to call…

Situs Qq

THIS SUMMER PROVED AGAIN HOW USELESS THE ‘EXPERTS’ ARE

“We are not going there on an excursion,” insisted Portugal coach Fernando Santos.

“We are going there to win!”

Cue the smirks from the assembled press at the pre-Euro 2016 conference.

Looking back at this summer’s big European tournament, we can all we so maddeningly wise after the event, convinced now having read the statistics at leisure that the best team all along won it in the end.

The elements for Portuguese victory were thus:

Three appearances in the semi-finals out of their last four European Championships, seven consecutive one-goal wins, a tight defence, a focused and unified group of players, the young star of the tournament, oh and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Speaking to 442 magazine before the tournament, Portugal centre-back Jose Fonte’s resonating words should have alerted us to his team’s potential:

“We have the best Situs Qq player in the world,” he reminded us. “We have a strong team, a fantastic manager and the full support of a nation.”

Well that sounds like a recipe for success.

He went on:

“I think we’re very well organised, we’re a close-knit squad and we have players who are extremely dangerous offensively.”

Yup, can’t argue with that.

“I think Portugal have a very good chance, ” ex-goalkeeper Ricardo told World Soccer. “I know there is an excellent spirit within the squad and the team has a very good coach. I think everything is in place for Portugal to have a good tournament.”

Ah, the 20/20 vision…

“I think we’re going to have a great Euro,” added Paulo Futre. “Portugal can beat anybody if we’re at the top of our game…Portugal are a great team when they are in good shape.”

Tom Kundert in World Soccer talked up their chances as well:

“Portugal have …
