The Advantages of Slot Spread-Limit Hold’em over Structured-Limit Hold’em

 

A Guide to Starting Hands

 

Most card rooms offer both spread- limit and structured-limit hold’em games to their lower limit players. And most players play these two games in exactly the same way. After all, hold’em is hold’em, right! Wrong. Choosing your best game strategy depends on the structure of the game you’re playing in.

 

In a structured-limit hold’em game, the amount a player can bet on any round is completely determined by the betting structure of the game. Consider a $4 — $8 limit hold’em game where the blinds are $2 and $4. On the first two rounds of betting, a player can bet or raise $4 and only $4 and nothing in between. On the second two betting rounds, a player can bet and raise $8 and only $8 and nothing in between. A11 bets and raises must be in increments of $4 and $8. But in a $2 — $4 — $8 — $8 spread-limit hold’em game, where the blinds are $1 and $2, the bets aren’t so rigidly predetermined. Instead, a player has the option of betting anywhere from $2 to $4 before and after the flop and betting anywhere from $2 to $8 on the turn and the river. How much a player bets within this spread is completely up to the Slot player. The differences in betting structure in these two types of games are big enough to require drastically different strategies.

 

Your main strategy change should occur right at the top, in the selection of starting hands. In hold’em, the quality of your starting hand should directly depend on the amount of money you have to pay to see the flop compared to the return you expect if you get lucky and hit your hand. Why? Because your hand …

Aren’t ligaz888 slot clubs just a way for the casino to make sure you don’t win too much money?

 

 

Slot clubs have very little to do with winning or losing. The card readers attached to nearly every modern slot machine allow casino management to compile data on the players. It tells them how much the customers play, what denomination, how many coins per pull they deposit and, yes, how much they win or lose.

 

How much a player wins is not the issue here, however. Casinos know that statistically they will win a set percentage from each player over the long run- and they mean the l-o-n-g r-u-n. A player could beat a casino every day for a year, and it wouldn’t change how the casino treats that person.

 

A slot club is used to determine how many goodies (rooms, meals, shows, cash back) a casino can give individual players as a reward for their loyalty. It only makes sense to register for the slot club in a casino before you play so you qualify for its incentive programs.

 

What Is A Random Number Generator?

 

The random number generator (RNG) is the heart of the slot machine for the player’s purposes. This little computer chip determines how much the machine pays out by constantly cycling through numbers and producing combinations that comply with the payoff percentage desired by the casino.

 

Is it better to play a machine with a progressive jackpot or one that has lower paybacks?

 

It depends upon your objective. If you want to go for the life-changing jackpot-something that will allow you to tell your boss where he can put your job-a slot ligaz888 machine with a big progressive jackpot will give you a thrill. The chances of hitting that jackpot are quite remote, to say the least, but it will no doubt be exciting to dream about …

Compelled to Clear the UFARecord

 

Throughout the years, I have read so many erroneous stories about the Minneapolis Gorham Press (the office that for years established the national sports-betting line) that I feel compelled to clear the record. Typical is this assertion: “The Gorham Press had ‘correspondents’ in every conference, who in turn had ‘bird dogs’ at every school, keeping them posted on information vital in determining the pointspread on each game.”

 

As I was the editor of the Minneapolis Green Sheet and one of the four handicappers responsible for the “Minneapolis line,” I feel qualified to set the record straight. I worked for this firm back in the late ’40s and early ’50s. At no time were there any “correspondents” or “bird dogs.” Many people offered to help us, but Leo Hirschfield, director of the organization, rejected them. Leo was the most moral and honorable of men, disavowing dishonest associations like one would avoid the plague. Meticulous in releasing the odds, he worried over the tiniest detail for fear it might be misconstrued. Leo had one of the quickest minds I have ever encountered. Though he did not follow the games that closely, nor play a role in the actual handicapping, he intuitively knew if a game was out of line. He will always remain unchallenged as one of the truly decent people I have ever known.

 

As mentioned there were four handicappers. Each of us worked independently. Years of UFA experience and countless hours of reading the dailies were our foundation. Sure we talked to people, experts who had an intimate understanding of their local scene, but they were not paid “correspondents.”

 

The bulk of our work was performed on Sunday after the game reports and statistics were thoroughly digested. It was a day for deep concentration. Early Monday …

Sbobet Indonesia Poker in Chicago:

 

Plenty of free parking… and the only poker room in Northwest Indiana… This is part of what you’ll hear when you enter the lobby at Harrah’s as a part of their promotional pre-recorded message which greets visitors to their casino. Harrah’s Casino is located on the south end of Lake Michigan, in a town called East Chicago, Indiana. Only 20 minutes from downtown Chicago, Harrah’s regularly attracts poker players from the surrounding areas, including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Kentucky. I currently live in Champaign, Illinois (about 2 hours south), and play mostly just on weekends due to the fact that this is my only free time to play.

 

Harrah’s Showboat Casino is housed on a riverboat called the Windstar, now permanently docked at Pastrick Marina, just off Cline Avenue. The Windstar has four levels – levels one and two housing an assortment of Sbobet Indonesia slot machines and video poker, and level three housing more slots and table games such as Blackjack, Craps, and Caribbean Stud, which I mostly try to steer clear of. Level four contains a high-limit room with Blackjack, Bacarrat and Pai-Gow poker, and most important to me, a 15-table poker room. Hours of operation of the casino are 8:00 am to 5:00 am, and you can always find a poker game during these hours.

 

If you’re from out of town, and need a place to stay, Harrah’s offers luxury accommodations in their new 293-room hotel, opened just last year, and adjacent to the Casino. There are also plenty of local hotels and motels close to the casino, with a wide range of room rates.

 

Even though Harrah’s does not have the only poker room in Chicago Land, it carries the distinction of being the largest and by far the most successful, spreading …

The Round of 16 Second Legs this week offer some tasty morsels

 

Who will win this season’s UEFA Champions League?

 

All we know for sure so far is that Real Madrid will not make it four in a row.

 

Los Blancos’ submission before an ebullient Ajax was a death long foretold, with the exits of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane in the close season and the cack-handed hiring and firing of Julen Lopetegui sure signs of a listing ship about to keel over.

 

Four teams have already made it to the quarter-finals but none were among the pre-season favourites: Ajax, Manchester United, Porto and Tottenham Hotspur.

 

This week we will know the other eight, with bigger cannons being rolled out on deck. If the second legs throw up no shocks then Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City will be in the hat as well.

 

Atleti have the incentive of the final this year being played at their new home ground, the Wanda Metropolitano, and looked imperious in the first leg, winning 2-0. However, it is too early to write off the runaway Serie A leaders, Ronaldo and the cauldron of the Juventus stadium hauling back two goals. Los Colchoneros are favourites but this tie is far from over.

 

The same night, Tuesday, Manchester City host Schalke 3-2 up from the first leg. It is hard to see Pep Guardiola’s team squandering three away goals but the fact Schalke breached their defence twice in Gelsenkirchen will keep them on their toes. A strange rumour surfaced last week that the Catalan will swap the Etihad for Juve next season. But if he captures an unprecedented four cups in a season..?

 

Barcelona and Bayern both drew their away legs 0-0, the lack …

Soccer – Fernandes keeps faith with under-fire Redknapp

 

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has backed Harry Redknapp to eventually Dominoqq guide the club back to the Premier League. After a run of just one win in their last seven Championship matches, QPR are ten points adrift of an automatic promotion spot and are 9/4 with bet365 to be promoted this season. Some fans have called for Redknapp to be axed, but Fernandes has issued the veteran manager a vote of confidence. He tweeted: “Nothing wrong with Harry. Team playing hard. Some defensive lapses. Need to tighten up. And of course score goals. Playing much better. “Takes time to rebuild. May take years to get it right. There was little to build on. Give support to team.” QPR face Yeovil Town this weekend and can be backed at 15/2 to win the match 2-1.

FA Cup semi-finalist face major Qiu Qiu legal battles

 

 

Cardiff City compete in their first FA Cup semi-final since 1927, when they take on Championship rivals Barnsley at Wembley next month. With only one Premiership side left in the famous old competition, never has the Welsh side had such a great chance of bringing the Cup back to Ninian Park for the first time in 81 years.

 

While City fans are concentrating on getting tickets for the big game, the club’s board is focusing on a far greater issue – a make-or-break ruling over the club’s financial future. City’s creditors Langston are taking the Bluebirds to the High Qiu Qiu Court this week over £24m worth of unpaid loan notes, which chairman Cardiff Peter Ridsdale insists are not due to be repaid until 2016. Should the Swiss-based financier win the court case, Cardiff City would have to make immediate repayments, inevitably forcing the club, already £30m plus in debt, into administration.

 

Cardiff City are fully aware of the precarious nature of their current position, especially given that building work is already underway on the construction of their new £29m stadium. Ridsdale admits that should City lose their legal battle, the ramifications would “materially damage the club”. The knock-on punishment for entering administration would see Cardiff stripped of 10 Championship league points, which would plunge them into the relegation zone. The financial implications of losing their fight would also bring about a mass sale of the club’s best assets. Young stars such as Joe Ledley and Aaron Ramsey would be amongst those likely to leave Ninian Park in a desperate effort to balance the books.

 

The threat of administration has hung over Cardiff City for a number of years, a situation exacerbated by the uncertainty over repayments to Langston. Welsh international Chris Gunter was sold …

From Bobby to Berbatov, how Togel Hongkong times change

 

 

 

Two recent news items in English football are resonating in my head.

 

One was the sight of an ailing Sir Bobby Robson receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC’s annual televised Sports Personality of the Year ceremony and the other was a typically calculated media plug by Dimitar Berbatov’s agent on New Year’s Eve.

 

Sir Bobby, a player and coach of his country and a successful manager of Barcelona, PSV, Porto, Sporting Lisbon, Newcastle and Ipswich, looked frail and white-haired after his latest cancer treatment, but it was the media savaging of his England managing in the 1980s which had first hit him sideways and turned his hair grey.

 

The venomous ‘Robson Out’ campaign pursued by The Sun was just one example of how times had changed in football since Bobby’s playing days began, at Fulham in 1950.

 

The Togel Hongkong media plays such a big role now that one of the key questions posed about Fabio Capello’s accession to the England manager’s role was whether he could handle the hacks. Both Robson and his successor Graham Taylor withered under the unforgiving fingers of Fleet Street, which set a precedent for a Press v England manager feud thereafter. “Win every game!” was Taylor’s assessment of the only possible remedy.

 

Alf Ramsey was not without his critics, whom he saw as an enemy trying to destabilize his patriotic ambitions, and Sir Alf took great pleasure in proving them wrong when he won the World Cup in 1966. The impassioned ‘Jamais!’ (‘Never…will I forgive my critics!’) mantra of Aime Jacquet after winning the World Cup for France in 1998 springs readily to mind, too.

The negative comments about Sir Alf’s England were as nothing compared to the outright brutality aimed at Robson twenty …
