Below I have compared the current Player of the Year rankings from Bluff and CardPlayer Magazines. I have a couple of observations:
-David Pham & Bill Edler seem to be the top players so far this year;
-J.C. Tran, Robert Mizrachi & Ted Lawson seem to be top ten players;
-CardPlayer gives a lot of weight to the WSOP (Schneider, Hamby, Clements)
-Will CardPlayer change its rating system for the new CardPlayer Europe Magazine?
-For that matter do either of these publications know there is QQWIN99 outside of the United States?
Gambling Declines in UK
The Gambling Prevalence Study, released in the United Kingdom, has shown a decline in the total number of adults that have participated in some form of gambling within the last twelve months.
Numbers in the report show that 68% of the population, or about 32 million adults, had participated in some form of gambling activity within the past year. This compares to 72% of the UK population 8 years ago.
Only 3% had gambled via the internet on activities such as online poker and casino games, while 4% placed bets with an internet bookmaker.
The UK gambler is mostly likely to be of white ethnicity from a higher income household. In general, gambling was looked upon as more harmful than beneficial but prohibition was rejected over the individual’s right to choose their own lifestyle.
