BTCC Joins OKCoin to Resume Bitcoin Withdrawals in China; Trading Volumes Up in Crypto Gambling

Make Money Using Bitcoin Faucets

The months-long bitcoin withdrawal freeze in China is coming to an end, as major exchange BTCC resumes bitcoin withdrawals.

The new month brings with it reports of another prominent exchange lifting its withdrawal freeze. BTCChina has stated that it has begun “testing” bitcoins this week. In joining OKCoin, that’s two of the ‘big three’ Chinese exchanges resuming withdrawals following regulatory scrutiny by the People’s Bank of China (PBOC).

China’s central bank began investigating trading and business practices of regional exchanges that drove what was then the world’s largest bitcoin trading market. It was nearly six months ago on January 6 when PBoC officials met with BTCC and followed it up with “on-site checks” of China’s biggest exchanges.

For its part, BTCC claimed it “regularly meets with the PBOC” to work in accordance of laws and regulations while adhering to “strict AML/KYC policies”. It wasn’t long before the financial regulator’s tightening squeeze was felt in the Chinese bitcoin ecosystem. Exchanges stopped margin trading completely and enforced trading fees in January alone.

Come February, OKCoin and Huobi paused bitcoin withdrawals, a temporary measure that was expected to last a month at the time. BTCC followed suit and halted withdrawals a week later. The freeze continued through March, with BTCC stating that withdrawals would only resume after regulatory approval.

In mid-May, CCN reported that the months-long PBOC’s inspection of exchanges was coming to an end. Withdrawals were to be expected in June, with rumors of ‘punitive’ penalties to be imposed on bitcoin exchanges. Details of the punishments, if any, are currently unknown.

Prominent Chinese cryptocurrency news source cnLedger confirmed BTCC resuming withdrawals.

The impact on Chinese markets has been telling. Having accounted for 10% of the world’s bitcoin trading early on Wednesday, news of OKCoin allowing withdrawals spurred investor activity to nearly 20% of the world’s trading volumes on the day.

On Thursday, following BTCC’s announcement, Crypto Gambling trading in Chinese markets is now at nearly 25% of the global market over a 24-hour period.



Online Casino Singapore deal is bad for state, says lawmaker



Struggling to overcome objections by regulators, backers of the stalled Rosemont casino project may face another problem: complaints from an influential pro-gambling legislator that the casino could be the most profitable in the Chicago area but generate the least revenue for the state treasury.


State Sen. Robert Molaro (D-Chicago) says he will ask lawmakers in the General Assembly’s fall veto session to rewrite special provisions of a 1999 state gambling law that earmarked less than 15 percent of Rosemont casino revenue for the treasury, ostensibly to pay for education programs. The share of revenue that goes to the state from Illinois’s nine existing casinos is roughly double that.


Under a compromise reached to pass the 1999 law, the Rosemont casino would be taxed by the state at the same rate as other gambling boats. But, more than half of the Rosemont tax money would be diverted to the horse racing industry as a subsidy to compensate it for lost revenue caused by competition from casinos.


Molaro, a member of a Senate committee that oversees gambling issues, said he has talked to several Republicans and Democrats in the legislature about the 1999 law and few were aware they had rendered Rosemont far less lucrative for the state than other casinos.


If Rosemont eventually gets the green light, regulators expect it to reap annual revenue of $400 million, more than any of its competitors. State fiscal experts estimate that would translate into about $111 million annually for the state if the horse money weren’t subtracted.


As the law stands now, however, the racing industry would get $60 million of that money, reducing the take for the state to $43 million. Another $8 million would go to Cook County.


Molaro said he still backs the subsidy but thinks it shouldn’t come out of the state’s share of the pot. He wants the formula changed so the state will keep its full share of Rosemont revenue and the subsidy will be deducted from the owners’ take, rendering the casino less profitable.


“The question is, does the 15 percent come from the owners who are going to have the best license in history or should the 15 percent come from the state? I think the public overwhelmingly would say it should come from the owners,” Molaro said.


The Online Casino Singapore owners can afford it, he said.


“Let me tell you this, if you own 1 percent of the Rosemont casino, your great-grandchildren won’t have to work,” Molaro said.


Kevin Flynn, chief executive officer of the Emerald Casino group that is seeking the license, could not be reached for comment.


The Illinois Gaming Board in January rejected the Emerald’s license bid, contending the top officials of the ownership group provided false information to regulators, contracted with a mob-related vendor and sold shares to two investors with alleged ties to organized crime.


The Emerald is currently locked in legal, administrative and political battles to overturn that decision.


Gary Mack, spokesman for Rosemont Mayor Donald Stephens, said he did not know whether the powerful mayor who brokered the casino deal would support making the casino’s owners responsible for the horse racing subsidy rather than the state.


Rosemont casino supporters have long said that every year the project is delayed, the state loses more than $100 million in revenue. Stephens has complained that “taxpayers and schoolchildren [are] paying the price” for the state’s failure to approve the project.


The $100 million figure, Mack said, was derived by looking at the performance of the state’s top-grossing casino, the Grand Victoria in Elgin, which contributed $106.8 million to state coffers last year.


That calculation, however, does not appear to take into account the racing subsidy that would reduce state’s revenue from Rosemont.


The Rosemont wrinkle aside, the 1999 law has reaped some economic benefit for the state while turning even greater financial rewards for the existing nine casinos and providing a big financial boost for the racing industry, a Tribune analysis of the gambling law’s economic impact shows


Thanks to the law, the horse racing industry has received more than $41 million annually in tax reductions or direct subsidies, not including the projected additional $60 million that would come from a 10th casino.


Revenue grew because the law eliminated a requirement that Illinois riverboats cruise while gambling is under way, dramatically increasing the number of hours in a day that casinos could take bets. After subtracting new tax breaks and subsidies for horse racing, the state’s new revenue due to so-called dockside gambling amounts to $179 million a year.


The bottom line: The 1999 law was worth $410 million per year to horse racing and casino interests. It brought less than half of that to taxpayers.


While other industries lay off employees and slash expenses, Illinois casinos are celebrating unprecedented boom times.


In Aurora, the Hollywood Casino plans to pay for a $75 million project, with nearly half paid for from cash on hand. In Joliet, Harrah’s is nearly done with an $82 million project–one of four casino expansions around the state totaling $200 million.


Critics say state lawmakers spend too much time promoting gambling as a revenue source when its actual impact on the state budget is negligible. Casinos still contribute less than 1 percent of the state’s $51 billion budget.


“Out of the $50 billion budget, we spend an awful lot of time talking about not a lot of money,” said Rev. Tom Grey, executive director of the National Coalition Against Legalized Gambling.

Universal Truths of Slot Gacor Poker 3

In my first two columns I dealt with four of the 6 Universal Truths of Poker (UTP). Here I give you Universal Truth of Poker #5.


UTP #5 Play Tight in a Loose Game and Loose in a Tight Game


This is one of those general rules that many players learn early in their casino playing career and then repeat to other players new to the game. It sounds good, it makes sense generally, and it helps give players who are learning a good understanding of some general principles about how to play. But, unlike the other UTP, it isn’t even correct most of the time. It is a gross overgeneralization and more frequently wrong than right.


Let’s look at it closely to start. To play tight means to play more conservatively. It means, generally, to only play with the highest quality starting hands. A very tight player in Hold Em may only play a very high pair or an Ace-King or suited Ace-Queen, regardless of position. A very tight player in Stud might only enter a pot initially with high Premium Pairs like Queens or better. He’ll fold every other hand.


To play loose means to play many hands. It means that one has much lower than normal requirements for entering a hand. A very loose Hold Em player may play any two cards before the flop. He’ll certainly play any pair no matter what the position and nearly any hand from any position containing a face card or an Ace. A very loose Stud player may call with every starting hand he gets and will certainly call with any pair, any three-to-a-Flush or three-to-a-Straight, and maybe even with just two high cards.


A loose game is a game with many loose players – players who play many, many hands. A tight game is a game with many tight players – players that fold nearly every hand.


So what’s wrong with the UTP about playing loose in a tight Slot Gacor game and tight in a loose game? It seems to make sense to bet more if your opponents are likely to fold but be more selective if your opponents are likely to call.


The biggest mistake is that this simple strategy fails to appreciate the significant differences between the two types of loose players and the two types of tight players. Let’s look at loose players first.


Loose players can generally be divided into two categories. There are loose-passive players and there are loose-aggressive players. Loose-passive players are often known as calling stations. That is, they call a lot and raise little. Loose-aggressive players are the opposite. They are often known as maniacs because they raise a lot and call little. Your strategy will be very different against loose-passive players than it will be against loose-aggressive players.


If they are calling stations then just playing tightly doesn’t make sense. Since they are likely to call with sub-par bad starting hands, your starting hands can be relatively lower too since it is still likely to be better than the hands they’ll be playing. Also, since you know they won’t raise you later in the betting even if they do catch excellent hands, you can you can see more hands to start because you can see them develop cheaply. This means playing more loosely. Similarly, since they are likely to call your raises when you draw successfully, you will make more money on your drawing hands. This means that your drawing hands increase in value since when you hit them you’ll make more from them because your loose-passive opponents will be less likely to fold.


Accordingly, the general strategy against a table of loose-passive players is to play more loosely, not more tightly. You maximize your winning potential by just playing one level less loosely against these calling stations – making sure to become very aggressive when you make your high quality hands.


However, if the game is filled with loose-aggressive players this loose strategy doesn’t make sense. In a game filled with these maniacs you need to be much more selective. Calling early on with drawing hands will cost you much more money because of all the raises you’re likely to face. Since you can’t get in cheaply, you need to be more selective. And if you start out with an excellent hand you don’t need to be as aggressive because other players at the table are doing the betting and raising for you. Later in the hand, if you make your draws you can be aggressive. But even if you don’t, and still hold a borderline hand, you need to call because the pot has become so large with all of the raising of the maniacs. You need to become loose and passive with these kind of hands in this type of game. Against maniacs you’re going to play more tightly early, more passively early, and more loosely and passively later on with anything but monster hands.


Tight players can also be divided into two categories. There are tight-aggressive players and tight-passive players – also known as weak-tight players. Both players only play high quality starting hands. But weak-tight players are both conservative and timid. They seldom raise; they are easily bullied with raises and can be made to fold the best hand.


Against players like this you can play more loosely than normal because you might be able to win the entire pot later in the betting by being aggressive. If you’re against a weak-tight opponent who can be made to fold if he fears he’s beaten on the River it often makes sense to play mediocre hands all the way to the end, planning on a bet or a raise to get him to fold if his good high quality starting hand didn’t improve.


Similarly, if your opponent’s are too tight, you can be more aggressive early in an effort to steal the blinds or the antes. If you know they are more likely to fold, you can bluff and semi-bluff more, knowing there is a greater chance you will get them to fold either right away or when you apparently improve on a later Street.


When you’re in a game with weak-tight players it probably makes sense for you to play more loosely.


But this is not the case against a tight-aggressive player. If a tight-aggressive player enters the pot with a raise you should be less inclined to play than against a normal or loose player because there is a greater chance that the tight player has a high quality hand. And he is likely to continue betting and raising if necessary to get the maximum value out of his hand. Similarly, if the tight-aggressive player just calls a bet in front of you, you should be less inclined than normal to call along with a drawing hand – since he is likely to raise on a later Street with a high quality hand, making it expensive for you to draw.


When you’re against a tight-aggressive player it probably makes sense for you to play tightly as well.


Also, if the game is tight and aggressive then if a player raises you early, the pot is unlikely to have much money in it later on because few other players are likely to call the raise. In hands likely to be heads up against a single strong opponent you need to be more selective than in a hand with many opponents who are likely to be calling with inferior hands. Hence, a game of tight-aggressive players is tough to beat.


As you can see, there is much more to playing in tight in loose games than this simple UTP suggests. Unlike the others, I suggest that you dispose of it entirely when you sit down to play poker.



Which UFA software should I play on?

As most of you are aware, we are currently running 2 different poker software on PokerPages. This has been somewhat confusing to some of you, so I thought that I would explain what’s what on PokerPages and now PokerSchool Online, and share what’s coming soon.

Old Software for ‘Fun-Play’

This is the older software (World Series Warm up and TOC Warm Up) that we have licensed for some time now and is still currently available on for anyone to use. This is the software that PokerPages now uses for our PokerDollars program. Sometime near the end of November, we are going to stop using this software and substitute our new poker software (described below).

Poker Dollars: Until that time, you can play on this old software for Poker Dollars as follows:

If you place in the top 5 in a round one event, then you are qualified to take part in a round 2 event on a Saturday and or Sunday.

If you place in the top 3 you will win a Poker Dollars voucher.

2nd = $15.00

3rd = $10.00.

Poker Dollars vouchers can be redeemed at a casino of your choice anywhere in the world where they play poker tournaments. The voucher can only be used towards a buy-in for a poker tournament.

Other Games: On this old software you can play the following side action UFA games: Limit Hold ’em, Limit Omaha 8 (Hi-Lo), Limit Stud, Limit Stud Hi-Lo; there is also heads up where you can play one-on-one against someone.

The multi table tournament games available are: Limit Hold ’em, No Limit Hold ’em, and Limit Omaha 8 (Hi-Lo).

You can download the old software here.

*Please remember that the old software goes away around the end of November. So if you wish to continue to play for fun (whether you’re a PokerSchool Online member or not), then you must download the New Software (see instructions below).

Our New Software

PokerPages has developed it’s own software to use inside PokerSchool Online, and on PokerPages for ‘Fun-Play’. After listening to many of the players’ requests, we feel that we have produced a superior poker experience for all of our customers. It’s likely you’ve seen this software referred to as ‘Beta Test software’ or ‘PokerPages software’.

Beta testing has been an ongoing experience for all of us. Now, the No Limit Hold ’em Tournaments in beta testing are coming to an end and we will begin introducing all the other games and limits, along with side action and single table satellites, which will all go through the Beta test phase before we introduce them into the school tournament syllabus.

The beta testing will be available to both fun play customers and school members, as we do appreciate your help and feedback. Soon we will begin running our PokerDollars program on the ‘Fun-Play’ Software. The tested, more-stable versions of the new software will be moved into PokerSchool Online as they become available on an ongoing basis.

The system requirements for this new software is:

A minimum processor speed of 200 MHz

64 Megs of RAM

Download the new software by clicking here. You can also download the new software from either PokerPages and PokerSchoolOnline.

Promotions using the New Software:

Bankroll tournaments structure

When we decided to launch PokerSchool Online we wanted it to re-create the real world of tournament poker as closely as possible. Therefore, when you become a member of Pokerschool you will be given a starter $200 bank roll. When we start the school tournament schedule you will be able to buy-in to $20.00 tournaments, and the prize pool will be a calculated percentage by the amount of entrants.

You will also be able to buy-in to 24/7 single table satellites for $5.00. The top 2 places of the single table satellites will win the “money”. The idea is for you to build up your bank roll and achieve a high position on the ranking tables. This way we are sure that you will improve your poker playing and we will generate champions of the future.

What happens if you lose your bankroll? We will calculate your ranking position and according to that position will award you a starting bank roll again.

You really have to play poker to achieve a higher bankroll to play in the more advanced tournaments. Our goal is to host a real online World Championship poker tournament where the players have built up $10,000 bankroll which will enable them to enter, whereas some of the other members may not have enough bank roll to participate and have this as a goal to reach.

Poker Dollars for everyone…

‘Fun-Play’ will continue to be offered with our new software. The schedules of these tournaments will be listed (along with the school tournaments) closer to November 1st

We will continue to run the Poker Dollars program for anyone to use (whether you’re a school member or not). But the poker dollars will only be redeemable towards membership in the school from the time it runs off the new software..


To re-cap, Up until the end of November, you can play on both software programs.

After the end of November, you’ll only be able to play on our own new poker software. It’ll be used for Poker Dollars/Fun Play for those who are not in PokerSchool and it will be used for tournaments for school members only. School members will be learning and trying to qualify (using the new ranking system) for their place in ‘the Big One’ for up to $100,000 worth of sponsorships for the 2002 WSOP.




Who Is Training ligaz11 Whom?

This is a column devoted to making money in low limit holdem, popularly referred to as No Foldem. This author does not claim to be an expert poker player. He is a legend only in his dog’s mind.

When we lived in Virginia, my wife and I once kenneled a dog for the first time with an old dog trainer. Now this dog was like my wife’s child. It had reached the age of five without every being kenneled. Like any mother, my wife expressed her concerns for the dog to the trainer. After listening politely for a few minutes, the trainer said in a gentle southern way, “Ma’ am are you training the dog or is the dog training you?”

Anyone who has every played low limit holdem has witnessed this scene. A player lecturing another player who just beat him, how the player who just won should never have been in the pot. To the player raking in the chips, this of course seems like utter nonsense. If I get such a lecture from a player, I usually tell him or her that I skipped that chapter in the book.

Instead of wasting time lecturing a player about pot odds, these “book” players should ask themselves the question, who is training who?

More often than not, low limit game $3-$6 games are fairly passive with little pre-flop rising. Most of the time players can see the flop for $3. In these types of games, a pattern develops with six or more players paying to see the flop. Then they start to drop out until two or three are left. Rarely will one person win on the end by other people folding.

In a $3-$6 game with six initial players and one player dropping out after each betting round, the total pot usually will be $71 after a $4 dollar rake assuming only one bet at each round. If that is the case, then a player only needs to hit a winner on the flop every 23 times to breakeven on an initial $3 bet. If a player pays another $3 to see the turn, the player only need to develop a winning hand on the turn once every 12 times.

Certainly, after the flop or turn the player may have to pay in more to see the river. But if the players throw away the real junk and stick with hands that have a chance to be a winner, even if it requires runner-runner, such players will hold there own at least in the short run. The table is training them that it is ok to play this way. If they happen to catch some cards, they will start to have a big stack of chips in front. This encourages these players all the more and starts a low boil in the “book” players.

Of course part of the answer to such players is to make them pay for the opportunity to chase those runner-runners. But the other complaint one hears from “book” players is that you can’t get anyone to fold in low limit holdem. Some subscribe to the theory that there is no point in raising even with premium hands. If you are convinced of this, ask yourself who is training whom?

Think about it from the prospective of a typical low limit player who chases too many hands. They aren’t thinking about how the pot odds have just changed because a “book” player raised preflop. Certainly they would rather see the flop for one bet, but they can usually still anticipate getting to the turn or river for minimal bets. After all, the only guaranteed raise opportunity in holdem is preflop. Players can’t raise themselves.

So if you’re a “book” player in a low limit, no foldem ligaz11 game, here is some advice: Keep betting your premium hands; just don’t fall in love with them. Holdem simulation of every player staying through to the river shows premium starting hands such as big pairs will win 25-33% of the time. With those odds, there is nothing better than getting six people calling your raises when you have aces.

On the other hand, if the flop misses your hand completely, be ready to abandon ship. Too often I have watched “book” players muck hand after hand waiting for the real premium hands. You can tell they are priding themselves on their discipline and looking down their noise at their wild and wooly compatriots.

They finally get that pair of aces and view it as their just reward for mucking so many hands. By this time it doesn’t matter if the flop shows a pair, straight or flush draw, they have almost a fatalistic desire to play their aces to the end. It is like they can’t believe the poker gods have conspired against them to deliver one more bad beat. Often they pay off the winner when they have the third best hand. Who is the sucker now?

The only revenge for getting rivered is rivering someone else. A “book” player needs to remember that in almost every discussion of starting hand standards is the caveat that players need to adjust them for game conditions. Part of the reason these books set higher standard for early position hands is the risk of paying too much to see a flop with a hand that needs a lot of help. If a table has fallen into a pattern of letting players see the flop cheaply that risk is taken away. Hands the books tell you are only playable in late positions become playable in early positions, particularly if they have the chance to be a big hand.

So if you have a premium hand in a low limit game and you know you just got beat; don’t pay off just to see another bad beat so you can lecture the player who caught runner-runner. Instead, use that money to see a few more flops and lace up your track shoes.




Larry Holmes Interview about Casino

How did you get involved in the online casino business?

LARRY HOLMES – [My manager] Jay Newman hooked me into it. We knew that online gambling was illegal here in the States so we wanted to go offshore with it. We have some people that we partnered with and we’re offshore with that but we’re still not allowing betting not only at the sportsbook but gambling period from the United States.

Do you gamble on sports?

I don’t gamble on sports. With a friend of mine or two I might bet on a fight or something like that. I’ll tell you what, I’m probably the lousiest picker out there because every time I’ve bet on a fight, I’ve lost. So I don’t bet on fights any more but I go see fights. I don’t bet on any sports but I’m a blackjack player. I play blackjack, I play poker and stuff like that. But I don’t bet on sports. I’m not good at that. Like the World Series coming up, I watch it but I don’t bet on it.

Your casino and sportsbook is really popular with Spanish speaking people. I didn’t realize that you’re so popular in Latin America.

I fought 4 or 5 of my fights in Puerto Rico and I traveled a lot to Mexico. And I still travel a lot back and forth to Puerto Rico because I do gamble there. I go down to the Cabana Plaza down there in Puerto Rico and I play blackjack. It’s nice. I like gambling. I don’t do it enough to blow a lot of money. I probably blew 5 or 10 thousand dollars, that’s enough. See I don’t go crazy with it.

Have you tried playing blackjack on the Internet?

I played blackjack on the Internet for fun. I play my blackjack for fun and one of the things that I like about it now is that they’ve speeded it up and you can get into it real quick and it pays quick.

Do you have any other Internet plans?

We got the Larry Holmes souvenir shop that we’re putting on the Web. We also got some property that we’re selling on there. We are a business and we try to do a variety of things.

You can get that through or


Any plans to fight again, Mr. Holmes?

Fighting again on November 17 at Biloxi, Mississippi. I’m fighting Mike Weaver again.

There was a rumor going around that you were going to fight Butterbean.

They’re trying to do that too. If they can put that together, well then fine. I’ll fight Butterbean. I think it would be easy.

How about George Foreman? Are you going to be able to get together and fight him?

I think not because I think George Foreman is a chump and a punk and I think he’s afraid of me. George Foreman is afraid of me. He thinks he’s Mr Shit on a Stick and it went to his head. He thinks he’s better than people. People don’t really know George Foreman. But the real George Foreman has always been afraid of me. Even when he were 789betting Champion of the World back in the day. 1978, 77, when I was a young guy coming up, he was champion then, he was afraid of me then.

He looked like he was getting serious there for a while, then he backed out of it.

He’s fat, he’s out of shape. I think, he’s 300 pounds. I don’t think he wants to do this again. I think he’s afraid. If he wants to go to the top, he’s gotta work his way to the top. I do what I gotta do to get the title shot. He wants to take short cuts. That’s why he was with the IBF and with the grand jury investigation and all that thing. He paid the commissioners off to get ranked. And I think that’s junk. I think the guy should’ve fought his way in there like I did when I fought Ray Mercer and everybody else.

Are you still trying to go for another title shot?

Well you know, that’s kinda like far fetched. Nobody wants to give me a fight not because I’m older than them but because they could lose their position. These fighters today are not the same as they were. These guys don’t want to fight anybody.

How does Lennox Lewis compare to you when you were the champ or to Muhammad Ali?

He wouldn’t have never made it. He’s a decent fighter. Right now he’s the best fighter out there because there’s no one out there. If he was in our time, you would never have heard of Lennox Lewis.

Do you see any young guys coming up that might be any good?

Well I take a look at them and they all look the same to me. No dedication, no discipline, no real self training or nothing. These guys just go out and throw punches. No fire, no skills, no jab, no side to side movement, nothing. Just punches.

How about outside of the heavyweight division?

You got the De La Hoyas out there, and the Shane Mosleys, and those guys but they’re not recognized enough to carry the ball. Like when I was there I had Sugar Ray Leonard, I had Marvin Hagler, I had Roberto Duran. I had Tommy Hearns. I had all those guys. But these guys ain’t got nobody to carry the ball.

Did you hear Oscar de la Hoya’s new CD?

I didn’t hear it but I heard some of it. He sang some of it on the Tonight Show or something like that. If you like Spanish music, then it’s okay. I don’t understand the singing but I listen to the music. When I go over to Puerto Rico and Mexico and places like that, and I hear the Latin music, I love it.

In your opinion, who is the best heavyweight fighter out there?

I’d say Mike Tyson when he’s not crazy and then Lennox Lewis. I think Mike Tyson would beat Lennox Lewis because of the determination Mike Tyson will bring to the fight. But there’s only two guys out there right now — Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis. And Lennox Lewis won’t get that PR recognition because he’s not American. People prefer American fighters.

I just have one more question for you Mr. Holmes. It’s political season right now. I know you’re extremely popular back in Easton. Do you have any political ambitions?

No I don’t want to be into that because politics is all bullshit. I would want to try and do the right thing for people and there would always be some politicalness in there. For instance, let me say this. In our city here there are people behind in their water bills. They evict them out of their homes. They do it before winter comes but the thing is they let them get 3 years or 2 years behind and then they want to throw them out. You see, I’m against that. They paid 30, 40, 50, 100, 200 thousand dollars for their home and they can’t afford their water bill and all of a sudden they throw you out of your home if you don’t pay your water bill for $3000. Those things I’m against. So political, no I would make a lot of people angry with me but I’d probably make a lot of people happy.

You wouldn’t want to be mayor?

No, please no.

Are you supporting either candidate Bush or Gore?

No I don’t support anyone but I am a Democrat. And if I vote for anyone it will be for the Democrats. I’ll tell you one of the reasons why. Republicans are good people and I can make a lot of money with the Republicans because they think about big business but I’m for the little man I like to see the little man have a job, the little man have a home, the little man be more comfortable because rich people don’t stay rich but they may get richer. Let the little man make some money.

The Cure for the Common Situs Judi Slot Online Terpercaya

This year has seen a bumper crop of new computer virus outbreaks. I’ve received over 30 virus-infected e-mails in the last 14 days, and while I’ve managed to avoid any infections, this deluge has forced me to review and renew my emergency recovery plan(s). You might want to, too.

Let’s assume that a virus makes it onto your computer and you’ve inadvertently activated it. But what does activation mean, exactly?

Your garden-variety virus needs to be – for lack of a better term, ‘turned on’ – in order to do its business. That usually happens when you open an infected file or run an infected program, which then delivers the virus payload into your system. Whatever the activation method, the point is that you’ve got it and you need to get rid of it.

The first step is to identify the extent of the problem. Most anti-virus (AV) programs (such as the ones I mentioned in the last Tech article) ask you to create a set of “boot disks” when you install the program. They also prompt you to update the disks; we’ll further assume you have done that. Those boot disks will prove invaluable.

Insert the main Emergency (Boot) disk and reboot your machine. When it comes up, you’ll be running off a clean disk instead of your infected hard drive and the recovery process can begin.

To identify the extent of the problem, you should run a full system scan once you are running off a clean boot environment (your boot disks or a bootable CD). This is a critical, because if you’re simply running off an infected hard drive you’re wasting your time and are probably making things worse.

If you don’t have boot disks and can’t get any, your best bet is to turn your computer off, leave it off, and call a Togel Hongkong computer-smart buddy or as a last resort, your local computer shop.

Let’s assume you’ve done your scan and it tells you that you’ve got ‘[email protected],’ for instance. Now what? Again, the AV software people are your best bet. Get on an uninfected computer that has web access and go to Symantec’s Security Response web page.

You’ll find an encyclopedia of known viruses at the Security Response site and by searching for your virus by name, [email protected] in our example, you’ll find a Recovery Procedure and possibly free tools for removing the virus. If you’re an experienced computer user, you probably won’t need the free tools as the recovery procedure text will be both informative and sufficient for cleaning the infected computer.

Once you’ve performed the removal, reboot from your emergency disks and rescan your computer to make sure the virus gone. If you find other infections or infected files clean them out, too.

Repeat the virus scans until the machine finally comes up clean, always booting from the emergency disks if possible. Immediately update your virus definitions, refresh your boot disks, reboot, and rescan again. If you’re clean, congratulations! If not, repeat the procedure until you are.

By now, you can be pretty certain that you’ve (a) recovered from the virus infection and (b) repaired or removed any files that could reinfect your system. Remove the boot disk and reboot your computer normally. You’ll soon see if your machine still has a heartbeat. Hopefully it does and you’re ready to get on with your life.

Dave “Devilfish” Ulliott

At the first televised poker tournament in Cardiff Wales, in the spring of 1999, I watched Dave “Devilfish” Ulliott, dressed in all black with gold-rimmed sunglasses and goatee, breathe life into televised poker by winning Late Night Poker I. I’ll never forget that night after the final; back at the bar with Devilfish buying a case of champagne, there was a true pioneer spirit in the air. Most of us had played and lost, but it didn’t matter, because something great had been created and Devilfish was a worthy winner to present the face of poker as a sport.

Now, more than five years later, Devilfish is on top of the poker world. Over a midday meal on the 11th deck of the ship on a recent poker cruise to the Mediterranean, I got to talk with him about how far he has come and how life is now that he’s an UltimateBet-sponsored player.

Everybody knows Devilfish. Wearing his black suit and those two finger rings that say “Devil” and “Fish,” the Devil has topped big poker tournaments in both the UK and America, like the one he won (pocketing $600,000) in front of a partisan American crowd in Tunica, Mississippi, during the breakout season of the World Poker Tour. Ulliott wiped up a final table there that included American superstar Phil Ivey and Texan old-timer Tommy Grimes. “I done Tommy Grimes’ head in there,” Dave laughed. “It was good for televised poker that I won those early tournaments.” Yes, it’s been great. Devilfish’s image and play have won him fans from around the world, and helped to catapult poker to being a sport with exciting stars.

It certainly didn’t start out easy for Dave Ulliott. “In the old days,” he said, “I used to have to win at poker to play the tournaments, because nobody ever gave me a spit to slide in.” A young Devilfish once lost his friend’s car in a poker game. “They asked me, ‘How much have you got left?’” he reminisced, “and I said, ‘I got these car keys here,’ and I put them in.” Ulliott smiled at the memory. “Hey, I was an 11-1 favorite in the pot!” he said in his own defense. “Then, I called my mate up and said, ‘You know that car? How much would you sell it to me for?’”

Devilfish got his nickname in Las Vegas, and don’t let his wit let you forget his skill. A devilfish is an oriental delicacy that kills you if it’s not prepared properly. Someone had called him that in his local game in Hull many years ago, but it hadn’t stuck. And wouldn’t you know it that someone from that game happened to be in Las Vegas when Dave got to the final two of the World Series of Poker pot-limit hold’em championship in 1997. Ulliott was head up for the $200,000 first prize against Men “The Master” Nguyen, a stack ’em up tournament artist who’s a commander on the tour.

The spectators were a little boisterous, and one of Men’s supporters, of which there were many, shouted out, “On the Master!” A cheer went up. Then, from the back of the pack, the man from Hull fired back, “On the Devilfish!”

Then, the Devilfish skinned the Master, and laid him out to dry, and the nickname stuck.

Devilfish served serious notice to the judi poker online pkv world on that 1997 Las Vegas trip. “I went to Vegas,” he said, “and Mansour Matloubi (1990 WSOP champion) befriended me. He suggested I play Lyle Berman heads up. I beat him for $168,000.”


“Did Lyle say anything to you?” I asked.


A dry smile broke across Ulliot’s lips. “He said, ‘That’ll do … ’”


His friendship with Mansour was to pay even bigger dividends. When the online poker site UltimateBet decided it wanted someone in Europe toward the end of 2000, Mansour told consultant Russ Hamilton that Devilfish was the man for the job. “At the first Poker Million on the Isle of Man, Russ and Mansour invited me up for a dinner. I was a bit dubious, and decided that I better not fasten my shoelaces,” he said with a wink.


Devilfish needn’t have worried. He was offered a 1 percent share in UltimateBet and was given two weeks to make up his mind. He decided to give it a go. “And if I had decided not to,” Ulliott said, “I probably would have shot myself. It’s probably worth over a million bucks now.” Dave strongly believes that UltimateBet has the best software, and in his opinion is the best in online poker. Devilfish calls UltimateBet CEO Greg Peterson “one of the cleverest guys I ever met; he never makes a wrong move.” And of former WSOP champion and UB consultant Hamilton, Dave said, “I’ve known Russ for seven years, and in all that time, I’ve never seen him lose a bet — whether it’s golf or bungee jumping!”


After his initial contract with UltimateBet was up, Devilfish tested the market and found quite a few offers. But, UltimateBet matched all comers, giving Dave the most lucrative individual contract ever in European poker. Ulliott can now play whichever poker tournaments he chooses, whenever he wants. “It’s nice,” he said, “to be involved in a company that you believe in and own 1 percent of!”


Dave Ulliott has come a long way from a tough upbringing in Hull, but he has no desire to forget where he came from. He still lives not far from where he was raised, in a house with a garden, a pond, a snooker room, and a music room. “My only worry,” he said, “is getting the kids to school on time!”


Talk about how times have changed. “Although I started as the bad boy of poker,” Dave admitted, “I’ve changed quite a bit. I used to swear and say what I thought … ” That wink and the smile that cracked his lips signaled that the man known as Devilfish is still apt to say whatever’s on his mind, but it’s different now — now that Dave “Devilfish” Ulliott has reached the pinnacle of the poker world. Devilfish is not a bad boy any more, and he wears it well.

Featured The Ultimate Guide To Winning A Steady Stream Of Judi Slot Online Income At The Internet Casinos

“You can win cash for cars, vacations and more every month, betting as little as $1 or $2 per hand.” As far as pitches go that one is pretty direct and to the point.


So the question I asked myself when I looked at this book is “what is this guy selling?” And in a nutshell it boils down to this: Blackjack basic strategy + betting rules + money management = the best chance of success. Following his simple approach author Dennis Spivak believes that the player can predictably and consistently win. “Let me tell you,” he says, “it’s utopia on the internet.”


Okay, hyperbole aside, his basic advice is pretty sound. Savvy players on and off the internet know that Blackjack is one of the few casino games where skilled players can minimize their loss expectation. And money management is essential to any player’s game strategy. As to the betting rules … well let’s have a look at the book first.


After a long and somewhat repetitious introduction and preamble the meat of Spivak’s text, his Chart, appears on page 34. It is a novel reworking of a standard Basic Strategy chart for a Multiple Deck game. What he adds to the mix is a lot of arm-twisting.


“When you stop thinking and start referring to the Chart … you’ll play a more relaxed, fundamentally sound game” he says, and “Never play hunches … Believe in the Chart”. For emphasis he adds the old saw “ours is not to reason why, ours is just to do or die.” Okay, okay, we’re getting the point: Chart good, everything else bad. Fair enough, let’s move on.


After some excellent suggestions about which Blackjack games to play –namely those where the dealer Stands on any 17 and where Double is permitted after a Split– we’re introduced to his betting strategies in Part IV.


Spivak presents a structured approach to betting that is based on (a) an “Opening Bet”, say $1 or $2, and that all subsequent bets are derived from it and (b) his stated goal which is to “minimize losses and conserve wins”. So far so good.


However, it’s in the details that I start to lose Mr. Spivak. For instance, assuming your Opening Bet was $2, he says “always log off once you are up by $2”. Say what? Sure enough, the details of his “Conservative” and “Traditional” betting strategies repeat and make a specific point of this.


In attempting to make sense of this advice I think I’ve gleaned the following: By “log off” Spivak means just that. Once you’ve logged off it’s apparently fine to log right back on again. In his words “log on and off frequently.” You’re supposed to ensure that when you do log back on you’re not “in the same spot where you previously left off”. It’s better to play games that assign you a random number as identification because then you know that the game hasn’t identified you as the same person you were in the previous game.


As far as I can tell what Spivak is saying is that it makes some difference to your final results whether the game software knows what you’ve won before within a given play session. To that I can only say this: if your results in a given hand are effected by hands you’ve already played they you’re playing a rigged game, plain and simple. Furthermore, if the casino wants to cheat you, logging off and on again isn’t going to make a big difference.


One could interject here that a hand’s results could be effected by the remaining cards in the shoe but Spivak himself makes reference to “the shuffle factor” meaning the programmed rule that online Blackjack decks are effectively reshuffled after each hand. He quite rightly points to this as the fact that renders card-counting at online Blackjack pointless. Spivak’s advice regarding log-offs baffles me because elsewhere he states that at “virtually every online casino they [the games] are programmed to be fair and … ultimately will be truly random.” I agree, but how then can logging off and then back on in any way effect a player’s results? Either the games are fair or not.


Since further explanation of this log-on-log-off betting approach is not given we’ll leave the subject as it stands. Needless to say I am soundly unconvinced.


The section concludes with some good advice on Judi Slot Online money management, specifically on establishing your bankroll. Simply put he advocates that the player have 50-times their Opening Bet in the pocket when they begin play. This is well within the common advice on this point widely given elsewhere.


There are other tidbits of advice that Spivak gives that I find puzzling though perhaps less troubling than the log-offs. Regarding Surrender, for instance, he says “I don’t like the option and I never consider it ….” Okay, that may be his preference but game analysis has shown that Surrender can give the player a slight edge so why disregard it so out of hand especially since, as he so often repeats throughout the text, “it’s all about winning”.


Around the middle of the book Spivak offers some math explaining how you’ll win 80% of the time and so on but … well, you decide for yourself. I’ve tried their Chart and their betting strategy and I sure as hell didn’t win 80% of the time. More like 1/2 that but perhaps my problem is that, as they warn, “until you totally accept the concepts … you may very well lose money.” So far he’s right about that.


The books wraps up with a 58 point summary including the mantra “Follow the Chart”. Right, we’re with you on that point. Finally there come a number of quotes offered by Chip the Cow, “team mascot, lucky charm, four leaf clover, and wheel of fortune all wrapped into one loveable bovine”. These pearls appear under the heading “Chip Sez”.


Okay, well at this point Max Sez: I’m outta here!
