Although the poker world will have to wait until November to crown a champion one player is already setting himself apart from the field. Dennis Phillips, chip-leader of the Main Event, has pledged to donate 1% of his earnings to putting “a Bad Beat on Cancer”. While 1% may not sound like a huge amount, if all goes to plan it could represent over $90,000 in donations to the Prevent Cancer Foundation. “I am thrilled to contribute a portion of my hk prize earnings to the Prevent Cancer Foundation,” said Phillips. “Charity involvement has always been an important part of my life, and hopefully more poker players and final table participants with follow suit in upcoming poker circuits like the European Poker Tour and the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.” Poker players donating winnings to charity is beginning to become more and more commonplace. Barry Greenstein, often deemed the “robin hood of poker”, has been donating tournament winnings for decades. His charity, “Children, incorporated” has been a beneficiary of the majority of his tournament earnings throughout the years. 2007 main event champion, Jerry Chang, donated 10% of his $8.25 million prize money to the Make a Wish Foundation; Feed the Children, and the Ronald McDonald House.
Poker sites have started to catch on as well. Recently PokerStars donated over $50,000 to the Kentucky Hemophilia Foundation. PokerStars spokesman Chris Moneymaker had many kinds things to say about Phillips “[He] is a stand-up guy who brings a positive feeling to the WSOP final …

Five Scots bingo halls shut as smoking ban drives players out
It has emerged that Scottish toto sgp clubs are being forced out of business by the recent smoking ban.
As a result of the ban 3 months ago reports show a decrease of up to 27 percent in revenue, with five clubs now having to close their doors.
The Bingo Association backed the ban but now industry chiefs are warning more will close and say they want tax breaks to help them keep going.
Scotland ‘s biggest independent bingo operator has shut down two halls, in Edinburgh and Dunfermline. The Dunfermline hall, in Fife Leisure Park, only opened a year ago.
The Inverness firm, who employ more than 500 people in Scotland, say revenues have plummeted as customers use time between games to go outside for a smoke instead of spending cash in the halls.
Managing director Peter Perrins said: “Players arrive late, depart earlier and take any opportunity to exit the building in pursuit of their nicotine fix.
“Tabletop bingo and gaming machines form a significant part of the business and these have begun hemorrhaging money.”
Another operator has now closed their bingo halls in Stirlingshire, Fife and Lanark.
Operations manager Mike Lowe said: “Within four weeks of the ban being introduced, it was apparent business would be devastated and extreme measures would need to be taken.

It would appear so in Taiwan…
Taiwan’s Central News Agency reports this week that a local advertising company promoting British Internet sport betting company Sportingbet has been raided and charged with gambling by police, shortly after the bookmaker’s founder spoke about his company on the island. Taichung-based Shijiwei Advertising was searched by detectives from the Criminal Investigation Bureau, who seized computer equipment, accounting books and an alleged list of gamblers who had opened accounts with Shijiwei. Police said the search yielded evidence indicating that the company is Sportingbet’s partner in Taiwan and has attracted hundreds of millions of new Taiwan dollar wagers from local gamblers for Sportingbet.
The company provoked the authorities’ attention when it invited Sportingbet’s founder Mark Blandford to visit Taiwan to promote sport gambling on the Internet.
CATCH THE MEDIATOR
Not a transparent company it would appear
Another of those small but intriguing mysteries surfaced on the message boards this week when a poster coyly using the unprofiled “handle” of VC Mediator made an appearance, offering to assist the growing number of players who are experienced problems at Prism Casino.com and its close relative Virtual Casino.com.
With a weary cynicism born of many Slot Gacor encounters with tricky casino operators in an unregulated industry, experienced players asked VC Mediator to identify himself, his “independent” company and his industry experience. His use of a Virtual Casino email address immediately raised concerns of bias.
That’s when a remarkable reticence set …

Saya benar-benar bermain di game blackjack $2 dengan batas rendah. Saya bersandar pada penggandaan pada 10 dan 11 karena seperti yang saya nyatakan, saya cenderung bermain pada permainan denominasi terendah yang tersedia. Haruskah saya menggandakan lebih banyak ketika diberi kesempatan? Jed S.
Blackjack dengan mudah adalah permainan meja paling populer di kasino. Saya percaya salah satu alasan utama popularitas besar blackjack adalah bahwa ketika dimainkan dengan keterampilan, ia menawarkan peluang terbaik dari semua permainan kasino. Blackjack juga menawarkan dua bonus kecil yang manis. Anda dibayar setengah ekstra dari taruhan Anda pada blackjacks alami – tidak ada keterampilan atau risiko moneter yang terlibat – dan Anda dapat menempatkan lebih banyak uang pada ganda dan split yang menguntungkan.
Ini adalah split, double down, dan blackjack yang menggoyahkan permainan blackjack Anda dari merah menjadi hitam. Jangan meremehkan diri sendiri dalam situasi ini.

Mintalah saran saya, Jed, dan ingat situasi yang menguntungkan itu. Terima saya nanti dengan mengirimkan setengah kemenangan tambahan Anda.

Euro off-track.com, the pari-mutuel and content provider based in the Isle of Man in the British Isles has made ‘co-mingling’ of wagers on international racing a reality.
The company in conjunction with it’s stateside based partner US off-track, commenced a ‘worlds first’, the broadcasting of a new wagering service in the US, with the introduction of top quality Irish greyhound racing. The two tracks which are being broadcast are Dublin based, Shelbourne Park and Harold’s Cross into a host of stateside tracks from the 13th January.
Vincent Caldwell, Director of Euro off-track.com said “We have been working on this project with our partners, US off-track and the Irish Greyhound Board, with the initial goal to achieve co-mingling of international transatlantic wagers for a considerable period of time. Now on a daily basis we broadcast Irish Greyhound pictures to North America, where punters can use the existing US infrastructure to wager on. We are providing services to Tucson, Seabrook, Naples, Raynham, Lakes Region, Wonderland, Tampa Greyhound, Derby Lane, Racing Services, Racing Channel, US off-track and Artax Gaming.

TOKYO (Reuters) – Hit by years of economic malaise that have trimmed jobs and budgets, a number of Japanese local governments are touting casinos as a cure.
The Nihon Keizai Shimbun (Nikkei) reported on Saturday that at least eight localities are studying the idea of building casinos to bring in much-needed jobs and money.
Tokyo, whose nationalist governor Shintaro Ishihara reportedly strongly backs the idea of casinos, is set to pull together a report on the issue, with estimates of the economic benefits, as early as October, the Nikkei said.
Ishihara has also reportedly called on other governors to work together in lobbying the central government in favour of the plan.
For gambling in Japan is tightly controlled and strictly limited to a handful of events such as horse races. Places such as casinos, where money would be the prize, are prohibited.
Although pachinko gaming parlours are ubiquitous and nearly always full, they cannot provide cash prizes directly. Instead, winners get presents or chips they can exchange for cash.
Several local governments have already put out reports that are likely to set eyes gleaming in many a struggling community.
Estimates by a small city in central Aichi prefecture, some 269 km (168 miles) west of Tokyo, show that, based on overseas examples, the construction of three large UFABet casinos with 150 card and roulette tables, and some 2000 slot machines, could pull in more than 30 billion yen a year.

Stanford Wong is rightfully regarded as one of the most well-respected gambling authors. While he is most noted for his books about beating the game of blackjack, he has also written books on Pai Gow Poker, Video Poker, Casino Tournaments, and other topics. In his first new book for Pi Yee press since 1993, Wong examines the mathematics of advantage sports betting.
The book begins with the basics, explaining the terminology of sports betting and how to interpret the numbers on the walls and screens in a sports book. Wong follows this with a discussion of money management, some information and advice about betting sports on the Internet, and a discussion of mathematics. These sections are all very well written, but I was surprised that there wasn’t more information on proportional betting in the section on money management. Wong mentions what is commonly referred to as Kelly betting, but instead of providing some details about how one would apply this to advantage sports betting, Wong refers the reader to the blackjack literature. Overall, the math is presented in a clear style that should be palatable to anyone who doesn’t have nightmares of their high school math courses. Wong manages to thread the needle pretty well by presenting powerful techniques in a clear manner that doesn’t require an advanced degree to understand.
While Sharp Sports Betting is primarily about selecting good sports bets based on mathematics, the next few sections provide a brief discussion on some aspects …
