casino en ligne francais

West Coast casino en ligne francais Poker Rooms

 

 

 

This is another in a series of reviews of the sleeping accommodations of parking lots of casinos throughout our nation’s western states. It is directed towards those amongst the cardplaying community who, like the author, are adventurous and poor. However, in the interest of incorporating a wider audience, I’ll also include some description of the casino itself and maybe some amusing anecdotes. Why not.

 

Yuma, Az. Paradise Casino

 

I have to congratulate myself on some productive internet research. Before leaving San Diego for my favorite aunt’s house in southeastern Arizona, I dug up an article on pokerpages.com (shameless plug) entitled “ARIZONA POKER: A mecca for the poker connoisseur.” Perfect, considering I play poker and that I was headed to Arizona.

 

As it turns out, one of the casinos mentioned in the article is Paradise Casino in Yuma, AZ. Well, Yuma hadn’t seemed so attractive since it ended its reign as the spring training site for the San Diego Padres (clearly the darkest day in the town’s history). This little piece of heaven in the middle of North America’s most arid expanse would definitely have to be my first stop.

 

I left San Diego at around 7:30 pm, intending to get some miles under my belt at night while it was nice and cool. I figured that my ’86 Ford with the broken thermostat would thank me for it. When I finally hit the desert floor and it was still well into the nineties, I really felt smart.

 

It was no less balmy when I crossed the Colorado River three hours later. The exit for Paradise Casino was clearly marked and after winding my way up a short road, I was there. A bright little oasis of neon and whitewashed walls nestled in a little valley just off the highway. Yuma at 11:30 pm on a Tuesday: paradise. I tried to park my truck – at this point overflowing with camping gear, clothes, and food – under a streetlight and strolled in.

 

I already had a plan. After locating the casino en ligne francais poker room (incidentally, there appeared to be two poker rooms – one on the “Arizona” side of the casino and another on the “California” side – but I didn’t take the time to inquire further about the other room or the way in which the casino was split), I found a nearby blackjack table and approached.

 

“Fifty in red, please.”

 

“Okay.”

 

Then I walked away.

 

I intended to work a little tourist routine for the next few hours. You know what you think when you see some kid approaching the poker table with a stack of $5 chips: fresh meat. Let the locals try to sink their claws into the poker machine that is Mr. B!

 

Well, my plan was foiled on two fronts. First, the poker podium refused to exchange my red chips for a rack of ones. No problem; they could decorate the table for awhile. Second, and probably more importantly, they weren’t spreading any games at which I was any good (not hard considering I only play hold ’em). So it’s $3-6 Omaha high-low or nothing? I had to ponder this one.

 

I sat there for ten minutes or so, clicking my ‘blackjack winnings.’ On one hand, I’d played very little Omaha-eight. But, on the other hand, I **** at the games I do know well.

 

As I weighed the pros and cons, a kindly dealer walked up just then and began to explain the intricacies of the game. I begin to lay it on. Yes, I’ve played before (a little defensive). Omaha? Never. There’s a low (confused, yet interested)? How does that work (innocently curious)? Ramon is perfectly willing to assist.

 

With my image as a novice firmly established, I figured I had at least one advantage. Besides, did I really intend to go to sleep right now?

 

I grab a seat and go through a few hands. I finally pick up an A-2-K-Q double suited red, which I understand is a decent enough hand. I limp along and it’s raised behind me. Five players see the flop.

 

It comes A-Q high, and has also provided me with a draw to the nut diamond flush. Can’t go wrong, I think. A diamond on the turn. I’m already stacking the chips in my mind as its checked to me on the turn. I bet. This should be a decent haul. Sixty, maybe more in the pot right now…Huh. Board paired there on the river. Let me look again. Yep. A three on the flop and another there on the river. I check and, lucky for me, someone else bets behind me. I give what even I know is only a crying call. Turns out the preflop raiser didn’t have nothing, as I’d presumed. She flopped three aces and filled up on the river. Nice. I guess you can’t fake beginner’s luck.

 

After another hour and a half of play, I’ve caught very little. My dwindling stack is making me feel more and more like the tourist I’ve been emulating. Finally, fourhanded with $16 left, I pull up stakes and break the game.

It’s good to be on the road.

 

Sleeping accommodations: I wasn’t sure how kindly security would take to my presence, so I chose the less conspicuous confines of the truck cab as opposed to the camper (really just a shell with a makeshift bed). A word to the wise: vinyl seats and hundred-degree heat equate to lots of sweating and little sleep. Throw in the paranoia of getting caught (there was an RV park next door, so I wouldn’t have been moved far) and I probably didn’t find dreamland until three.

UltimateBet’s Annie Duke Freeroll and Free Sports Picks

Players wanting to square off against an elite pro but not pony up a huge tournament entry fee now have a chance to put their skills to the test against 2004 World Series of Poker bracelet winner Annie Duke. By sitting at a specially designated Holdem table at online poker site Ultimate Bet, players can earn points for use in the site’s monthly “Annie Duke Freeroll” event.

The prize pool for the event is $1,000, which comes directly from Duke’s “hard-earned cash,” according to ultimatebet.com. The maximum number of entries is 400 and the winner nets $300. The site’s promotional materials state that “you’ll find Annie attending this freeroll event occasionally both to chat with and challenge the players.”

To qualify for the tournament, players must earn 300 UltimatePoints during a month of play at the site’s Annie Duke $4-$8 Texas Holdem table. Points are earned for each hour of play and each hand dealt, with the point amount tied to the amount of the rake. Details are available at ultimatebet.com.

Duke defeated a field of 234 players at last year’s World Series of Poker $2,000 buy-in Omaha Hi-Lo tournament and later beat eight other top pros to take home the $2 million first prize at the World Series of Poker Tournament of Champions. She contributes strategy articles and partakes in promotions as a member of “Team UB”.

POKER ON TV AND FREE SPORTS PICKS

2005 seems already certain to be the saturation point for poker programming on television. In the coming year, at least one gaming cable network will launch, and the plethora of tournament poker, and specialty poker shows will continue. ESPN will again expand on its already extensive coverage of the WSOP, and the World Poker Tour, (and the new Professional Poker Tour), and Celebrity Poker show no signs of slowing down in terms of ratings, or interest.

Still, one must wonder how much is TOO much in terms of poker on TV. The production values of some of the televised poker these days is bordering on insulting, and it seems only a matter of time before the good separates itself from the bad. At some point, people will begin to distinguish between watching tournaments with the stars of the game in them, and watching 6 random players go at each other. Any form of entertainment places high value on its “stars”, and one of the ways those stars are made is through repeated exposure. It seems that much like the world of online poker (see below), in 2005 we will see the streamlining of the offerings of poker on television, and well thought out, sufficiently budgeted programming will continue to thrive, while some of the lower budgeted programming may fall away. In the end, I think maintaining a certain quality level for TV poker programming will bode the best for the long-term health of poker as a TV option.

Predictions for 2005 – poker on TV

Steve Lipscomb will make more money than you or I (and many others) combined.

Some TV type will be the first to use a 4-color deck in a televised tournament. Purists in card rooms across the land will riot (or at least grumble).

Celebrity Poker will NOT replace a host.

The first television poker “league” will form, and play to mixed results.

I will make a television final table (maybe that should be under ‘dream’, and not prediction).

Casino Extra

Casino Extra Gambling In Las Vegas

 

 

The two letter noun that completely defines gambling is LAS VEGAS. It has become the dream destination of all gamblers and holiday seekers. The one place you can drain all the tension and if unlucky all the money is VEGAS. Set in the midst of the desert it makes an oasis worth reckoning. Offering free drinks and luxurious ambiances the casinos of Las Vegas are nothing short of wonderland. It’s so easy for a person to get lost in the hustle and bustle of the busy streets or overcrowded casino tables. One must be care full while in Vegas as you may loose more then you plan to earn.

 

The Casino Extra gambling sees no rich or poor. All you need is the willingness to spend the money you have, the daring to go for the risky bets and you never know you can be the crowned king of gambling. This is the philosophy of the gambling paradise on earth. The casinos are full of games to bet on. There are sophisticated games with latest technology and there can also be the most famous card games to play. For example, despite all the advances games like blackjack and poker remain most played.

 

Although the whole city and places around it are mushroomed with casinos and entertainment centers but some places are better then others. And the best Las Vegas has to offer can be found on the Fremont street. It has been the street where you can find the most advertised items that Las Vegas has. The El Cortez, the Horseshoe etc. are the major places to go and try luck. Gambling majors like Steve Wynn have brought about a completely fantastic arena for the gamblers by the name of Golden Nugget. It has an excellent accommodation and luxurious settings for the gambling lovers.

 

Casino Extra Gambling is not the exclusive domain of the rich and spendthrift. With the increasing numbers of non-gambling tourist making it to Vegas every year, it has become imperative for the city to have places that offer cheap and dilettante gambling. you can make it to the Klondike, one of the most inexpensive casinos, then you can fulfill your dream of sitting on an poker table and yet not be robbed of. Most non-gambling tourists look for such places.

 

You may also decide to come out of Vegas with riches in both hands. This requires a lot of skill and time to spend. One has to survey the prospects and identify the one where the odds to win are the best and then intelligently with some prior knowledge bet on it. All the time one is betting, temperament is one thing you can’t loose. You have to be cool and play on. Keeping in mid what you have with you and what are you willing to loose. There is no point wonder what went wrong in the last bet that you even lost your shirt in it. The only advise for new visitors is that, in a place that offers free drinks for a person betting any thing over 25 cents, better safe then sorry.

Toto HK

PokerRoom.com Offers Tsunami Relief Toto HKTournaments

 

 

Pokerroom tsunami tournaments

Sweden-based PokerRoom.com will host two poker tournaments this weekend to benefit the victims of the devastating tsunamis in Southeast Asia.

 

Thailand is the number one vacation destination of Swedes during the month of December, and several of PokerRoom.com’s employees were vacationing in the region at the time of the disaster. A recent report by Reuters said that 52 Swedish tourists have been confirmed dead and 827 are still confirmed missing.

 

“While Toto HKPokerRoom.com’s native Sweden was hit extremely hard, this is an international tragedy which will take years to overcome and will require efforts worldwide,” Patrik Selin, Casino Boss of PokerRoom, said in a press release Thursday.

 

A $20 buy-in tournament will be held Saturday January 8th at 8 PM ET, and a $100 buy-in tournament on January 9th at 8 PM ET. The site will match the total prize pool from both events and donate the money to the International Red Cross. PokerRoom.com will also facilitate the

donation of any money from the winners.

 

PokerRoom.com is the only online gaming site not requiring a download, and offers online poker to Mac and Linux users.

 

Any similarities you see between pitching and poker?

 

“To be successful in both, you have to have no fear. To be successful in pitching, you have to go right after the hitter. In poker, it’s the same thing; if you are on a bluff, you can’t back down and show weakness. If you are on the mound if you want to make a pitch, you can’t show weakness, you have to go right after the hitters. In poker, it’s the same thing, you have to have no fear and keep on your plan.”

 

Many of the television outlets today are trying really hard to turn poker into a sport. Do you consider poker a sport?

 

“I don’t consider it a sport. Its more of an activity”

 

So, let’s talk about your upcoming charity poker tournament. Any celebrities in the tournament who are good players? Who do you like in the tournament?

 

“Well, Mike Lieberthal [Phillies catcher] is a really solid Toto HKPlayer. But actually, Thunder Keller will be playing as a celebrity. At first, we weren’t going to be letting any pros play, but I think it will be neat to have pro card players in there. I do think Thomas has an edge, but its sometimes more difficult for the pros to play against inexperienced players. An inexperienced player might stay in with a gutshot, and might make his hand, whereas a more experienced player would have folded.”

 

The tournaments $1,000 buy in also includes a cocktail reception with the celebrities, VIP check in, and airport transfers. Also, tournament players can register thru the tournament, and get a $79 room rate at the Hard Rock Hotel. Cards will be in the air at 1pm on the 13th, and players can register online at www.corylidlecharitypoker.com or in person until 12:45pm on the day of the event. Good Luck!

Cheri Casino

Poker Trips #1 – Necessary Aggressive Play + Other Cheri Casino Tidbits

 

 

Just a few tidbits about hand odds and poker in general… Have you seen the new Pepsi TV commercial featuring a can of diet Pepsi, Daniel Negreanu, and a few other poker players? The can of Pepsi wins the tournament. Exactly what soda pop has to do with poker, I don’t know. Kind of a silly commercial, hoping to ride the wave of poker popularity.

 

O-Poker has a story of how a friend called up saying they’d started playing a $50 PL tourney and the Internet connection gave out. Apparently the entire neighborhood was affected. That must really suck. I never thought of that. Fortunately, I haven’t had to suffer through something like that.

 

I have yet to play No Limit Cheri Casino Texas Hold’em, but I’ve watched several dozen games on TV since December, when I took up the game and started blogging. (I have been playing friendly poker for over 20 years.) I learn something about the Texas Hold’em with every match I watch. Because of it, I actually “watch” a re-broadcast of some matches.

 

So maybe this is obvious to those who’ve played it, but No-Limit Hold’em is a significantly more aggressive game than Limit, especially in live tourneys. You can only slow-play for so long before you run out of money, because the stakes are so high. So you often see weaker/ new players over-compensating. They play  too aggressively on weak hands at the wrong time because they’re running out of chips. Or they slow-play when they should have bluffed or taken their advantage. It’s a balancing act, trying to figure out when you’re going to run out of chips. Of course, we have the hindsight, watching on TV 🙂

 

I watched a WPT Bellagio season 3 game over the weekend. Nam Le, Steve Rassi, and Jennifer Harman had already been eliminated, in that order. Vinny Landrum only had $135,000 left. He’d just defeated Jennifer Harman with his pocket 3s against her A-x when he flopped trips. Then lo and behold, Humberto Brenes got pocket 3s and beat Landrum when he flopped trips.

 

There was no way Landrum could have lain low, given the Cheri Casino blinds were 50,000 and 100,000. The hand left him with 25,000 (I assume the rake is 10% – I don’t know). Daniel Negreanu, the chip leader with around  $8+ mln,  had been playing very aggressively, especially against Brenes, whom he perceived as a threat. But Negreanu very good naturedly played a gentleman’s game on what became Landrum’s final hand, with neither player looking at their cards. Brenes looked just before, which gave him a psychological edge. When fifth street was revealed, Negreanu and Landrum revealed their cards. Landrum was out in third. He played well, but he just didn’t have enough chips left.

 

Negreanu went on to win, but only after losing a few to the very good-humored Brenes. It was very exciting watching the heads-up action between these two aggressive players. Oddly, though, Negreanu has a very obviously aggressive style, and Brenes is a master of deception. If you want to learn, watch these two as much as you can.
