Everyone was laughing at event 13 of the FTOPS 9, mainly because the game being played was HA (okay bad jokes over).  Just what is HA?  For those who don’t know, HA is a mixed game which is half PL Hold’em and half PL Omaha.  In total, 913 players paid the $200 + $16 buy-in which made Full Tilt have to put up an overlay of $17,400 since the guarantee offered was $200,000.  This seems to be a re-occuring theme in this series as many events didn’t break their set guarantees.

Max Pescatori was the red man that everyone had their eyes on this 꽁머니  event and he is no rookie to tournament play.  He has over 17 cashes in the WSOP, 2 bracelets, and over $2.5 million in career earnings.   He also defended his hosting job pretty well in this tournament, but couldn’t keep it up for a final table.  He was one of 2 red prs to finish in the money, the other was Sigi Stockinger in 87th, and Max Pescatori was eliminated just short of the final table, 14th for $1,320.

Even though it wasn’t Pescatori’s day, it was for one of the remaining 9 players at the final table.  The guarantee wasn’t met, but there was still $45,000 that would be awarded to the tournament winner.  Who would that be?  Eventually, Dukatos battled his way to the top, and took down Allin4Narnia heads up collecting $45,000 for his win and the yellow FTOPS jersey avatar.  Special congratulations to Dukatos for his win, and everyone who finished in the money in event 13, $216 HA:

Event 11 of the FTOPS 9 was the game of limit hold’em.  Although limit hold’em doesn’t attract as many fish since they can’t just push all-in, Full Tilt offered a $200,000 guarantee for the $216 buy-in.  Well, with only 932 players registered, Full Tilt ended up having to put up an overlay of $13,600 which was good news for the players!  The eventual winner would take home $45k.

This event was hosted by cowboy Andy Bloch, and even his avatar sports his infamous Full Tilt cowboy hat.   However his hat couldn’t bring him luck in this tournament, as he busted early on in 623rd place.  In total 108 places were paid and out of the 18 red pros in this tournament, only 3 cashed; Michael Craig finished 99th, John Cernuto 41st, and Markus Golser took 24th.

It was sweetnees for one person in this tournament, in fact, it was sugar sweetness.  That is because Sugarsweetness topped the other 931 competitors, earning himself $45,000 and the yellow FTOPS jersey!  Sugarsweetness beat FM2T in an epic limit hold’em heads up battle, and FM2T collected $28,500 for his runner up finish.  Congratulations to Sugarsweetness and everyone who finished in the money in event 11 of the FTOPS 9, $216 LHE:

There are also bonus prizes for finishing at three final tables and finishing in the money in three events.

 

 

Sometimes togel hongkong tables allow a late surrender in the game, which slightly decreases the house edge. When they do, that brings an extra decision to basic strategy and gives players more to remember. If you remember your blackjack basic strategy charts, there are a few times where it says to surrender if allowed, otherwise hit. You should only surrender in those situations.

The problem is some people like to deviate from basic strategy and they think they know of other times where they should surrender. When they do, it’s usually the result of bad math. One classic example is the hard 15.

There are only four situations where basic strategy says to surrender, which is a hard 16 versus a dealer nine, 10 or ace and a hard 15 versus a dealer ten. With any other hand combination, even if the odds are with you losing, you have better odds playing out the hand than giving up half of your bet.

Many players, though, think that it’s a good idea to surrender if you have a hard 15 or 16 and are facing a dealer 7, 8, 9, 10 or ace. Here’s where that bad math comes into play. In those situations, you will lose more than half of the time. With your hard 15, for example, 53% of the remaining cards in the deck would bust your hand. Since more than 53% of the time you will lose with that hand (there are also times when you will not bust but will be outdrawn), people think that it’s better to surrender 50% of your bet all the time. That sounds reasonable, right?

Wrong. This way of thinking doesn’t take into account the money that you win 47% of the time. Instead of simply subtracting the amount of money you lose on your bad hands and comparing that to surrendering half of your bet, you have to combine your winnings to the equation.

To simplify things, let’s forget about pushes for the moment, when you neither win nor lose and get your bet back. Let’s say that there are only two options: You will win or you will lose. Now let’s say that there are 100 cards and 53 will cause you to lose and 47 will cause you to win. You are betting $1 per hand. Would it be better to play the hands or to surrender half of your bet on all 100 hands?

If you surrender on the 100 hands then you lose $50. If you play each hand, you will lose $53 and win $47 dollars. That means you only had a net loss of $6. Sounds better, right?

Even if the odds are tilted farther and 70 cards will cause you to lose and only 30 will cause you to win, you still want to play. Even though you will lose 70% of the time, again you have to do the math. In this case, you would lose $70 and win $30, for a net loss of $40. That is still better than the $50 you would lose by surrendering.

So when would you surrender? The break-even point would be if you lose 75% of the time. If 75 cards will cause you to lose and 25 will cause you to win, drawing 100 cards would cause you to lose $75 and win $25, for a net loss of $50. That is the same as surrendering. Therefore, you would only want to surrender when your chance of losing is more than 75%. If you won’t lose three times more often than you win, you don’t want to surrender.

Now that’s not taking into consideration that sometimes you will push. Honestly, I’m not a mathematician, so I can’t calculate your odds with a third possibility in there (win, loss, tie). Given all of the card combinations, there are thousands of player versus dealer combinations when you have a fifteen versus a dealer 7, 8, 9, 10 and ace. That’s why I trust the mathematicians who came up with basic strategy. It has been tested and found to be the wise strategy. Instead of inventing your own strategy where you surrender at the wrong times, it’s best to stick to the basics.

 

 

A California casino is suing an unknown individual over video footage that they allege was illegally obtained, illegally published and detrimental to their business. Lucky Chances Casino, located in the Bay area, filed a lawsuit over two videos that have appeared on YouTube.

The two videos, titled “Casino Fight 555” and “Casino Fight 333,” show physical altercations taking place on the casino floor while customers are playing blackjack. Initially it was believed that the videos were taken with a camera phone. However, given the birds-eye view and the time and date stamp, it is now believed that the video was recorded from the casino’s closed-circuit security camera feeds.

Publishing a video taken inside private business without the consent of the business is illegal, as is stealing security footage. By releasing the footage without Lucky Chances Casino’s consent, the unknown individual has already broken the law. In addition, the casino says that the videos have been bad for their business because they portray the casino as a dangerous place. With that in mind, the individual could be sued for the loss of revenue resulting from the videos as well as possibly defamation.

At this point, it seems that the casino does not know who they are suing. The uploader of the YouTube videos is identified on the website as only “rick5×5.” It is likely that the court will subpoena YouTube to obtain the name of the poster and the person’s actual name will be put on the lawsuit.

All of this is interesting, but it also brings up another 꽁머니 advantage of playing blackjack online. If you play at an online casino, you don’t have to worry about any violence on the casino floor. It’s true that violence is rare and when it happens, it’s usually the security taking care of a player who needs to be subdued. Even so, you can avoid any possibility by playing at home. You also don’t have to worry about being on videotape and then released on YouTube if you play from home.

Online Blackjack Advantages: Better Rules

There are a number of advantages to playing blackjack at online casinos rather than at brick and mortar casinos. One of those advantages is that online casinos sometimes offer better rules. It seems that standard blackjack rules are no longer standard, and the rules are getting worse in land casinos.

In the past, you could take it for granted that the casino would pay out 3:2 for a blackjack. However, with casinos hurting for cash, many are turning to 6:5 payouts, and that is for multi-hand games. It has gotten to the point where blackjack tables with low limits and 3:2 payouts are becoming hard to find in Las Vegas, Atlantic City and other popular destinations.

It’s not just the blackjack payout, either. Casinos are going away from player friendly rules such as having the dealer stand on a soft 17, allowing surrender and more. While the blackjack rules in brick and mortar casinos are getting worse, those in online casinos are staying the same for the most part.

That is because online casinos have a much lower overhead. They have no large building that they have to pay for. They have a smaller staff. They don’t have to offer drinks, food or any of the other perks of gambling on the Strip. Because they have fewer costs, online casinos can offer better rules for blackjack and still make money. If you find an online casino that doesn’t have good rules, then don’t play there. With thousands of online casinos available with the click of a mouse, there is no excuse for playing a blackjack game with bad rules.

The Las

 

Nevada was plagued by teamster financing, hidden ownership, employment of individuals of questionable character and background, and the clear links to organized crime. In this context, organized crime doesn’t just mean Mafia. Nevada improved its regulation only under the threat of federal intervention. The federal government believed, with good reason, that Nevada casinos were fueling organized crime throughout the country.

Because of this history, the concern about organized crime usually is raised whenever

legalizing gambling is discussed. Even when New Hampshire began its state lottery in 1964,there was concern that organized crime would take over.

Much has changed since the days when Bugsy Siegel started the first modern casino in Las Vegas. Organized crime has become part of the mystique of gambling but it is without significant influence today. Las Vegas and the Flamingo are part of an historical association with organized crime.

Introduction To Gambling And Crime –

Las Vegas And The Organized Crime

Gambling is often associated with crime. The relationship is easy to understand. Many types of gambling have been, indeed still are, illegal. Hence, by definition, criminals were the only operators of games. When gambling restrictions were relaxed, criminals were the first to open up legal gambling establishments.

A lax regulatory framework in Nevada did not prevent members of organized crime from openly owning and operating casinos. To some degree, Nevada needed the criminals to make gambling viable because no one else had their expertise and experience.

Nevada was plagued by teamster financing, hidden ownership, employment of individuals of questionable character and background, and the clear links to organized crime.

Safety In Modern Casinos –

The High Standard Of Casino Safety

Casino gaming has become one of the most highly regulated industries in America. The companies and individuals involved are very carefully scrutinized and held to extremely high standards. The organized crime scare is simply that, a scare according to many observers. Gambling is indeed associated with crime, specifically political corruption.

The casino companies suggest that they are devoid of organized crime influence because they are:

Dominated by publicly-held companies, many with household names like Hilton and Sheraton.

Answerable to their shareholders who are thousands of individuals and institutional investors.

Answerable to the Securities Exchange Commission.

Indistinguishable from any other business with accountants, attorneys, payroll specialists, auditors, and market researchers.

Licensed and tightly-regulated by state governments.

Nevertheless, there remains an ever present concern about organized crime. The sheer volume of money, cash in particular, that is generated by gambling, makes it a tempting target. Organized crime has been successful infiltrating ancillary businesses such as machine maintenance or those that provide other services. Often labor unions are used as the vehicle to carry out the infiltration. There are examples of organized crime infiltration. For example, as discussed in the section on gambling and politics, the FBI is investigating allegations that Louisiana state legislators took multimillion dollar payoffs to approve an expansion of video poker. The individuals attempting to buy influence were connected to organized crime families.

Researchers state that organized crime is more of a product of illegal or poorly regulated gambling than well-regulated gambling. That is especially worrisome because gambling isn’t just done within the large casinos. There are many other gambling opportunities and not all are as well-regulated or as free of organized crime influence as casinos. In California, card rooms and Indian casinos have been a focus of concern about criminal infiltration.

As Safe As Without Casinos

In September 1998, 24 sheriffs and chiefs of police from gaming jurisdictions nationwide submitted to the National Gambling Impact Study Commission Crime and Gaming:  Statement of Findings, which reported no connection between gaming and crime in their jurisdictions. Testimony before the commission by other law enforcement and public officials from gaming communities across the country told a similar story and, in fact, pointed to a decrease in crime in their communities.

When asked to write a feature article on Internet Casino Gambling and legislative efforts to ban it, I had no idea what the state of the law was and what those double-speak, moralistic, starch-necked congressional politicians were trying to do.

There were some specific questions that needed to be answered and I was asked to use my legal experience to ferret out and evaluate the answers. I had no idea who Senator Kyl [Arizona], Congressman Goodlatte [Virginia], and Congressman Leach [Iowa], were, what their responses would be, or for that matter, what they were really trying to accomplish.

I have been interested in casino gambling for years. By profession, I am a criminal defense attorney actively practicing in Los Angeles, California for over 31 years.

The first thing I did was to ask the following questions: [1] Why do they think their bill is important? [2] What they hope to accomplish by it? [3] Isn’t this “Prohibition” all over again? [4] Can the bill really be enforced in foreign countries? [5] Wouldn’t it be better to regulate, rather then to forbid? And, [6] Would they be willing to review ideas on how they could actually regulate the Internet Casino Gambling industry in a win-win scenario?

Next, I went into the Internet and downloaded these legislators’ bills. Senator Kyl’s and Congressman Goodlatte’s bills are specifically designed to be a “prohibition” on all forms of Internet Casino gambling. Another more subtle, but equally insidious approach was Congressman Leach’s bill, which is designed as a “prohibition” on the use of your credit cards and checking accounts to participate in Internet Casino gambling. I also reviewed a good number of congressional Slot Gacor sessions’ transcripts, press-statements and news accounts/interviews by these representatives. I began to think about this situation and asked myself questions . . . if playing poker and blackjack are legal in casinos all over the United States [and the rest of the world for that matter];

  1. What is the logic of making it illegal to do the same thing, merely because one is using the Internet? 2. How can they actually expect people to abide by such an unconstitutional prohibition? 3. Aren’t they going to make criminal offenders out of otherwise normally law-abiding citizens? 4. Aren’t they missing a tremendous opportunity to generate income for government by taxation, licensing fees, use fees or any other name they wish to use for charging fees to the Internet Casino entities for permitting them to conduct their business? 5. Is it that these legislators do not like the Internet or is it that they do not like “gambling”? But, what about horse racing, dog racing, Indian Casinos, lotteries, bingo, why aren’t they trying to prohibit their existence?

I had to speak with the legislators and hear for myself their reasoning.

I telephoned Congressman’s Goodlatte’s office in Washington, D.C. I spoke with Michelle Semones, his press secretary, a number of whose press releases I had already read. Ms. Semones stated that Congressman Goodlatte “would like to make all gambling illegal, although we know we can’t. We want to make it more ‘difficult’ for people use the Internet to participate in Casino type gambling.”

Ms. Semones stated that the “Wire Act,” enacted in 1961, prohibits people from using telephone wires to gamble. That is, “the Wire Act makes gaming over telephone lines illegal.” She stated the primary purpose of the Wire Act was to make access to casino gambling illegal and that the federal authorities would only be after the operators of the internet Casino gambling, not actually the players themselves.

There were many other comments Ms. Semones relayed to me, but first I want to give you my read on the “Wire Act”.

The Wire Act, which is a federal statute, cited as Title 18 U.S.C. _¸ 1084, essentially states that gambling-business entities can not use the telephone lines to receive bets or wagers for “sporting events.” Intrastate, [within a state], receiving of bets is not prohibited by the Wire Act; however interstate, [between states], and foreign country gambling via telephone lines are federal crimes.

Individual bettors; common players such as you and I, are not criminalized by the statute, only bookmaking businesses are capable of being prosecuted. It should be noted that the only reported cases dealing with it relate to “bookies” using the telephone to take wagers on races and sporting events. To date there have been no other cases of Wire Act gambling reported that I was able to locate. The statute also thereby implicates the Internet, since telephone lines are typically used to connect to a portal.

The congressional attempts by Senator Kyl and Congressman Goodlatte are designed to specifically include and prohibit all forms of Internet Casino gambling and to work in concert with the “Wire Act”. I suspect that the “Internet Gambling Legislation” is also contemplating adding microwave and satellite means of accessing the Internet as being prohibited.

Continuing on with additional comments by Ms. Semones in response to the above six (6) questions, she stated that states’ Attorneys’ General had no way of enforcing gambling laws if, for instance, that state, [such as Virginia for example], did not have any Casino gambling in it. Internet Casino gambling was harmful to consumers, who would become indebted; the age of the participant would be unknown or difficult to verify; and, why regulate the Internet Casino industry when it is already illegal to conduct such business or participate in it?

To date, I have been unable to get any representative from Senator Kyl’s office to speak with me, although I have made telephone contact with Steve Higgins, Esq. of the legislative subcommittee and Andrew Wilder, press secretary, both Sen. Kyl’s representatives. After I outlined the specific questions that I’d be asking them, they both told me that they would get back to me. To date there has been not substantive conversation with them. Therefore, I have no real idea what their answers would be.

I next spoke with Congressman Leach’s legislative assistant, Amanda Keuter. Ms. Keuter said Congressman Leach believes their legislation, [to prohibit the use of credit cards and checking accounts to participate in Internet Gambling], is an “enforcement mechanism to use in the fight against illegal gaming transactions. Our bill makes it illegal to use financial instruments, like checks and credit cards in the process of making a gaming wager.” For example, if a financial institution knew payment was going for Internet gambling, then that institution would be guilty of a crime, along with the player. Ms. Keuter stated their bill is “merely giving the Justice Department another enforcement mechanism of another crime”… a bonus crime!

When I suggested many reasons for “regulating” the industry, rather than a “prohibition” on the industry, Ms. Keuter stated: “The Congressman, [Leach], does not care for this type of gambling”.

I suggested to her that by combining Sen. Kyl’ss and/or Congressman Goodlatte’s bills with Congressman Leach’s bill, the combination would create a modern day “prohibition”. Ms. Keuter responded, “That is true.” I discussed the fact that this type of “prohibition” legislation had failed in the past, and asked why the congressman thought that this type of moralistic legislation might be honored in the future? Ms. Keuter was unable to answer.

I suggested to her that by imposing such a “prohibition” as opposed to “regulation”, [a] otherwise law abiding citizens would become criminal offenders, [b] the existing “bookie network” would become more active and, in fact, [c] new “bookies” would emerge to handle those players who would want to use their home or business computers to Internet gamble. Is it Congressman Leach’s intention to stop individuals and companies from participating in those activities?

In conclusion, it is clear to me that these parochial, federal legislators are attempting to “ban” Internet Gambling, by initiating a modern day “prohibition”. As this magazine so intelligently observes in the related article by Stanley Roberts, “State Gaming Portals,” “Those who do not learn from the mistakes of history are condemned to repeat them,” quoting George Santayana.

These morally conservative congressional representatives are likely to be violating our civil rights and denying us equal protection of the law; in essence, taking our rights from us in violation of the 5th and 14th Amendments to the United States Constitution. The lessons of history have shown us… what comes around goes around. Therefore, on behalf of the citizens’ of the United States.
