A reckless gamble with the lives of the poor
Believe it or not, the Government — led by a sincere and devout Christian — wants this country to become the gambling capital of Europe. The proposals to relax the gaming laws are supported by the Chancellor of the Exchequer — an unbending son of the manse who epitomises the respectable virtues of thrift and reticence — because of the revenue he will levy from the ill-gotten extra gains of the casino operators. The cash is more important than the consequences.
Ministerial enthusiasm for roulette and backgammon owes as much to political philosophy as to public finance. New Labour — still searching for an idea to live by — has decided that the time has come to demonstrate its libertarian credentials. Freedom for gambling addicts to destroy themselves and damage their families will be proclaimed as proof that we live in a mature democracy. And not only addicts. The Government intends to make gambling more attractive to everyone.
For the first time in history, UFABet casinos will be allowed to serve alcohol and provide live entertainment on the gaming floors. The casino owners’ obligation to demonstrate a demand before they open new premises is to be abolished. There is absolutely no reason why there cannot be a little Las Vegas in every town and village.
The old regulations, which once made prospective gamblers pause and think, are to be swept away. The inconvenience of taking out membership of a casino, 24 hours before placing the first bet, is regarded by the Government as an intolerable inhibition on impatient punters. So men and women who are overcome by a sudden impulse to bet will be able to ruin themselves without delay. Credit card bets will be legal as well as welcome — combining their well-established encouragement to run up debts which …
How Would You Play These Ligaz11 Hands?
“How should I play when there’s a maniac at the table?” Good question! We all know what a maniac is. He is overly aggressive, and that’s putting it mildly. If “be selective but be aggressive” is poker’s underlying mantra, the maniac is the guy who’s half way there. He’s aggressive, all right. But he missed out on the selective part of this lesson entirely. Although even casual players realize that unmitigated aggression is a blueprint for losing money — at least it will be in the long run — a maniac’s presence at the table really does affect one’s choice of starting hands as well as other strategic decisions during the play of a hand. Moreover, maniacs seem to intimidate many players, and even though these players realize they’ll make more money in the long run because of a maniac’s presence in the game, many of them long for quieter games with less visceral impact. Maniacs, or course, thrive on this sort of thing. They love running over other players and the more they can intimidate their opponents, the happier they are. If it sounds like the prototypical schoolyard bully, you’ve got a pretty good picture of a maniac at the poker table. But even though you realize that maniacs play incorrectly — and are thereby playing into your hands as a consequence — when someone constantly raises, or makes it three-bets by reraising every chance he gets, it can be disconcerting as well as intimidating. When a maniac raises, you’ll seldom know what he has. Is it legitimate, or is he bluffing? Since a maniac is capable of raising with absolutely anything — or even nothing — conclusions are hard to draw with any certainty. When someone constantly raises, you know he can’t have the goods all the time. …

Elezra is Mirage Poker Showdown Champion

Surinder Sunar — The Man Who Would Not ‘Surinder’
At 9 o’clock in the evening on July 20, 2004, the threehanded play was intense at the final table of the World Poker Tour tournament held at the lovely and intimate Aviation Club in Paris, France. Parisians were bustling in the streets below, while indoors, Tony Guoga taunted Surinder Sunar, telling him: “Surinder, you are going to bleed so badly once it is heads up. You’re putting me to sleep. I’m scared for you!”
When it was down to two players, Tony G. brought the game to a halt for well over five minutes as he attempted to goad and provoke Surinder, who sat expressionless. Five minutes may not sound like a long period of time for Poker Online Pkv Games, but under the severe heat of the camera lights, along with a room bloated with anxious onlookers, five minutes was a dreadfully prolonged period of time. The official WPT statistician, Jan Fisher, confirmed that …

Olympic Togel Online stadium a fight for soccer’s soul…?
Football and the Olympics does matter after all.
By the end of this week either Tottenham Hotspur or West Ham United will be in pole position to take over London’s Olympic Stadium once the flame goes out on the 12th of August 2012. The battle for Stratford has turned into a fire-fight between two capital clubs with all manner of voices wading in, from politicians to Pelé.Olympic stadium a fight for soccer’s soul?
But whichever club wins the right to move house next year, the decision will also record for posterity just what is driving the soul of Togel Online British sport at this moment. It is price versus value and by the end we will see just how much money can buy.
Olympic stadia are beautiful, but what is to be done with them once the party is over? Athletics just does not pay, however popular it will appear for a month at the games. Next year, the track events will as ever be the blue riband of the games, sports amateur in tradition if not in practice anymore. Although Baron de Coubertin’s Corinthian ideals may now be a quaint memory, the fact Britain does not possess a single venue able to host a major track championship is painful proof of just how far athletics lags behind the professional team sports in money-making.
At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the UK team finished fourth in the medals table, beaten only by superpowers China, Russia and the United States, yet a closer inspection reveals only four of Britain’s 47 medals were won inside the main arena. The velodrome by contrast yielded sixteen. The 2012 stadium cost the British taxpayer half a billion pounds and the odd athletics meet alone will not pay for its future upkeep. …
World Cup 2010 Pengeluaran HK Review
It took less than an hour of South Africa 2010 for South African hopes to be sent soaring as the man with the Motown ditty name, Siphiwe Tshabalala, blasted a crisply volleyed strike into the Mexican goal, cranking the vuvuzelas up to eleven. Ooh Tshabalala, Tshabalala ding dong. Played out to the soundtrack of a broken fridge the greatest show on earth was finally on the road but it was a false dawn for the hosts.
The joy lasted just 25 minutes before Rafael Marquez became the first to spoil the fun with a leveller that ultimately led to Pengeluaran HK South Africa becoming the first hosts ever not to make the Last 16. Diego Forlan completed the party-pooping with two fine goals in a 3-0 win that propelled Uruguay to group winners and on to an eventual fourth place finish.
South Africa’s only consolation was beating an imploding France team in the final group game to condemn Les Blues to bottom place and home in shame, but a victory over a side coached by a walking dead man and chock full of incredible sulks is nothing to blow your horn about.
South Africa’s failure was mirrored by Nigeria, Algeria, Cameroon & Ivory Coast and so African attention switched to Ghana. The Black Stars carried the hopes of a continent on a glorious run to the quarter finals which ended in heartbreak against Uruguay as Luis Suarez’s ‘hand of the devil’ hammered the final nail into the Ghanaian coffin with a 120th minute handball that earned him a dismissal and Ghana the penalty chance to make history. Asamoah Gyan’s ballooned miss and subsequent success in a heartbreaking penalty shootout defeat provided this tournament’s Stuart ‘Psycho’ Pearce moment. African hopes withered and died but the vuvuzelas …

Korea Gears Up For Play-Offs
With most attention on the exploits of Pohang Steelers in the Asian Champions League and the national team’s friendly matches in Europe against Denmark and Serbia, the fact that the K-League is about to embark upon its championship play-off series has almost gone unnoticed.
Six teams are still in with a chance of the domestic title. One is Jeonbuk Motors. The team that finished first in the regular season gets the reward of being able to lie in wait in the final match in December and see which of the other five teams will be left standing.
Four are in action this weekend – though only two will survive to go to the next stage. The first play-off takes place on Saturday in the capital as FC Seoul meets Chunnam Dragons and the …
A Spanish Beer Mug and Bandar Poker Online
I’ve really enjoyed the festive break. Unlike the majority of my contemporaries, I resisted the temptation to get drunk every night; on Christmas Day, I collapsed at lunchtime.
Frank Lampard is also a fan of the occasional swift one. A Spanish chauffeuse has alleged that the Chelsea man ‘took a while to finish’ as a result of a champagne binge; I just hope his shooting was less erratic than in the Premiership.
A bad week is about to get worse for the chubby midfielder. The champions have been leaking goals since John Terry stole my patented ‘I can’t come to work today, i’ve got a bad back’ line; a Fulham win at the Bridge is simply too big at 20/1.
I refuse to waste money on a breathalyzer kit; I find the ‘how big is the girl I’m considering sleeping with’ test a far more accurate guide to intoxication. I may have been paraletic when I met the wife; but it’s in relative sobriety that I suggest a bet on Tottenham at 7/4 to see off Liverpool.
Losses are like a Spanish driver, you should never chase them after a couple of beers. Newcastle have cost me a small fortune in recent weeks; I’m fighting the temptation to lump on Everton at a beguiling 6/5.
I must congratulate the Toffeemen, Bandar Poker Online expert on the surprise result of the season, a Jose Mourinho apology was trading at 100/1 on the exchanges. It’s pretty much accepted now that Andy Johnson does not go down, a policy I wholeheartedly agree with. AJ can open the scoring at an upstanding 5/1.
The loss of Henri Camara would be a blow under normal circumstances, but when it leaves Emile Heskey leading the line, it’s bordering …
Roy Dominoqq Keane
Roy Keane’s Finale at Manchester United?
The Ranter looks back over a glittering career and to an end that hopefully won’t drag on too long.
There’s a passage in Roy Keane’s suitably frank autobiography in which, to paraphrase, the fiery Irishman admits he wasn’t the best player in his junior team, not even in the school side but that in living, breathing and fighting football he succeeded on determination alone.
It’s a misrepresentation of the Cork master’s talents but a fitting summary of a career that is surely now drawing to a close.
Born in Cork, Ireland, 10th August 1971, Roy Keane is Dominoqq most probably entering his final season as Manchester United captain; perhaps even his last in English football. Over the past decade he has cajoled, bullied and fought his way to the top.
His vein pumping, fist clenching all-action style has always been the surface of Keane. But below that has been a master tactician, the epitome of the modern midfielder’s art – as the great Marcelo Lippi once called him, “Manchester United’s heartbeat.”
In the final year of his contract at Manchester United it looks increasingly likely that Keane will either retire or move on in May 2006. Keane’s influence is as great as ever but successive injuries have blunted his physical abilities to the point that manager Sir Alex Ferguson has changed his side’s tactics to offer the Irishman more protection.
With Keane injured until winter sets in and rumours of Bayern’s Michael Ballack’s January arrival at the club increasingly believable, Keane could even find himself on the bench come the New Year. It is with this backdrop that the crackerjack midfielder recently announced his expectation of leaving the club at the end of the …
