First Asia Pacific 안전놀이터Tour

 

The first ever Asia Pacific 안전놀이Tour kicked off on the 24th of August in Manila, the capital of the Philippines.  The total prize pool of $500,000 is to be shared among the more or less 200 players coming from 30 different countries.  The event is being held at the Hyatt Hotel and is set to end today, August 27.

According to Same Lightman,  organizer of the event, “”There has been a massive explosion in poker over the last 10 years.  Poker used to be associated with shady men in smoke filled rooms but that’s not the case any more. Televised poker and the Internet has changed all that.  Poker is a skills based sport based on mathematics and psychology.”

The region can thank PokerStars for bringing this tour to Asia.  PokerStars is an online poker site (which I am sure you know) with millions of players around the world.

Just one thing I noticed, though, it seems the locals were not really part of the Asia Pacific Poker Tour.  I have some friends in Manila who are avid poker players.  Actually, they play home games every weekend.  It didn’t seem that they were too excited about this big event, though.  In fact, none in their group joined nor even watched the events.  Does the $2500 buy in have anything to do with it?  I don’t know.  It is just a bit sad that people who are really passionate about poker cannot relate all that much to a big tournament like this one.

Pictures from the Final Table

When I took these pictures the mood in the tournament room was lively. People cheering, chanting,  Matusow losing $7500 in the stands playing Chinese Poker. Other pros seen playing from their leather chairs were Juanda, and Phil Hellmuth. Phil Gordon …

먹튀사이트to merge?

 

Rumous have been spreading that poker giants 888 may merge with 먹튀사이late next year, this could mean pacific poker could become one of the largest online poker rooms.

However nothing is set in stone as yet, this is merely forum gossip but has been spreading like wildfire.

Just finished watching this episode, was good to see Doyle Brunson play (although folding a hand to a lower flush)

Other highlights include watching Laliberte winning hand after hand (half of his winning he is donating to charity) this also introduced my favourite phrase of the series “Lesson number one for the potentially best bluffer in the world: don’t try to bluff billionaires,”

One annoying aspect of the game was Jamie Gold consistantly explaining how he was ‘the best bluffer in the world’ only to get bluffed by Benyamine

All in all a good episode and next weeks looks like their will be a lot more action and a lot more cash swapping hands.

ThePokerFilm is a newly released mini documentary which follows the life of 4 college students who make a killing player poker (both online and offline) view the series here

It certainly goes a bit ofcourse as it’s intentions were to show how these players live. Also having 3 episodes about a drinking competition certainly shows the college life rather than poker life. But all in all it’s entertaining if you have 20 mins to spare.

As most of you online players have heard Absolute Poker has come under a lot of scrutiny for having a ’super user’ account, this basiclly allowed a player (username potripper) to view all of the other players hole cards, obvsiouly giving him an advantage which he greedily used to steal pot after pot. Some believe he hacked the system (this is …

AGEN138 Event #2, $1,500 NLHE Grant Hinkle Wins Marathon Event

 

Grant Hinkle penned his name into the AGEN138 history books by winning Event #2, the largest WSOP preliminary event in history. The field began with 3,929 starters, all vying for the win, the bracelet and $831,662 in first-place.

Tuesday’s action at the World Series of Poker was highlighted by the awarding of the Series’ second bracelet, to Grant Hinkle in Event #2, $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em.

Grant Hinkle won his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet in Event No.2 last night. The $1,500 no-limit hold’em tounrnament that he won was the fourth largest tournament of all time, and it gave him a nice payday worth $831,279.

Omaha Hi/Lo made its 2008 World Series of Poker debut with Event #6, $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo. 833 players plunked down their buy-ins and took their shots in the first non-hold’em event at the 2008 WSOP.

Cake Poker recently debuted a “Rewards Statement,” which is a personalized e-mail newsletter to its customers that keeps them up to date on their progress in Cake’s innovative loyalty program.

Getting to the top of the mixed event will be tough. First, players need to have enough bank to bang in the $10k test of all-skills poker.

Second, they need to be confident they can beat top pro players in eight different variations of the game, including Triple-Draw 2-7 Lowball, Limit Hold’em, Omaha Eight-or-Better, Razz, Seven Card Stud, Stud Eight-or-Better, No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha.

Third, they need the facility to seamlessly bounce between strategies.

Player Profile: Taylor Caby

So far the players we’ve featured were offline pros. Let’s take a look at a very young man who is well known in the online agen slot online world as Green Plastic. So what do we know about Taylor Caby? He was born in 1983, studied Finance at the University of Illinois, and is known to be one of the best heads up players online. To gain a bit more insight into this young man, here are parts of an interview that PokerNews had with him. Enjoy!

Q: Where did your screen name Green Plastic come from?

Taylor Caby: In college, I really got into Radiohead. The song “Fake Plastic Trees” is one of my all time favorites, and Radiohead’s unofficial (now its semi-official) fan website was GreenPlastic.com. I used to go there all the time to check out stuff about the band. What’s kind of interesting was that my first and second choices for my name were also Radiohead songs, “No Surprises” and “Let Down,” which both were taken. I emailed UB customer support to have them add an account for me (I wasn’t sure if it was allowed) and gave them those three choices. The guy emailed me back and said Green Plastic was mine, and that he loved Radiohead too. In my opinion, all of these names would have been suitable, but I do find it funny how it just so happened that Green Plastic was available and will forever be my poker identity. Some of my friends call me GP now because they know it bugs me to be known as just some kid who plays online poker.

Q: Do you prefer virtual poker to the kind found in a brick and mortar establishment?

Taylor Caby: The reason I love playing online is that it is …

WAIT FOR THE RUSH Online Casino Malaysia

 

With nothing to do on Saturday night during my 12 day monthly sojourn to Sydney, I girded my loins and made for Sky City for a night of Online Casino Malaysia.

I arrived about 9:30pm to find the usual waiting list for a table, 40 or so deep for the 1/2 table and 12 deep for the 5/5 game. My plan was to go for the $200 fixed buy in the 5/5 game. Knowing there would be an inevitable wait, I bought a card for the electronic tables, which Star City now have cranked down to $50 buy in and $1/1 blinds.

The idea to offer lower stakes games I think is a good one. It encourages more walk-by punters to get into the game, and for me, if I copped a few bad beats, it meant I wasn’t going to damage my bankroll too much waiting for the live dealer game.

Unfortunately my $50 buy in lasted about ten minutes. Six hands into the table I have A J in the big blind. There is one or two callers, then a raise from mid position to $6. All fold to me, and I decide I have a good enough hand to defend the blind aggressively and make it $15 to go. The raise from mid position did not look strong to me, and I figure it likely I can take down the pot here.

One of the limpers from early position calls – a bit of a surprise, maybe he was slow playing Kings or Aces? The original raiser folds, as thought he might, and two of us see the flop.

The flop is 6 J 4.

I have top pair, top kicker, but I do suspect a slow played monster from my opponent. To find out …

Wil Wheaton’s bursa303.city Blogs…

Since Wil Wheaton is blogging about bursa303.city  these days, I think he qualifies to play in the next poker bloggers tourney, right Iggy? I’m sure he’ll get on the ball and invite Wil to play with us. Ben Affleck is too cool for us lowly scum of the earth poker bloggers. But Wil seems like a cool guy. I hope he considers playing.

Well, I had Wil’s site linked up from my other blog. But I saw that Chris Halverson mentioned the link on his site. Wil’s an active blogger and an excellent writer specifically when he talks about his first No Limit tournament at a sketchy place in Hollyweird. Check out: Lying in Odessa Part I. Here’s a bit:

“You play poker, right?” my friend said to me a few weeks earlier, as we waited for the subway.

“Yeah. You have a game?” I said. I’ve been looking for something similar to The Tuesday Night Game ever since I read Big Deal.

“Sort of. You ever heard of the Odessa Room?”

I shook my head. “I’m spectacularly uncool, Shane, and I live in suburbia. What’s the Odessa Room?”

“It’s an honest-to-goodness speakeasy in Hollywood. Twice a month they have poker tournaments.”

And make sure you take a look at his second entry: Lying in Odessa Part II. Here’s a bit of that:

We play a few hands, but my cards are shit, and I don’t get into any pots. It’s okay, I’ll be patient. Stick to the plan.

For a game in Hollywood, there’s precious little, until Mr. Lawyer says to me, “Hey guy, aren’t you an actor?”

I hate that question, because I always have to answer, “I used to be.”

“Whaddaya mean, ‘used to be?'” Says the guy to my right. He’s a Webmaster from Long …

Deloitte’s (New) Duties

 

The Adelphia settlement is pretty much old news by now, but an acquaintance pointed out to me that there were some pretty unique aspects to the settlement that sure didn’t receive much press coverage. Or maybe it was just tangential and not really noticed. (By me, anyway.)

Anyway, as part of the settlement, private investment trust is now required to “think forensically” in evaluating its clients and its risks in auditing them. SEC Accounting and Auditing Enforcement Release No. 2237 contains the summary of the case and proceedings; what’s really interesting is in the back of it, in Sections F. (”Certain Steps Taken By Deloitte Since The Adelphia Audit”) and G. (”Undertakings By Deloitte”).

After the Adelphia audits, Deloitte started using proprietary financial analysis to assess its exposure to financial statement fraud or business failure in its client base of publicly-traded U.S. clients. There’s a strata of clients that they worry about based on the output of the analysis: the ones they put into the “Risk Management Program.”

Since May 2002, Deloitte has taken extra care with these clients:

– They notify the Audit Committee that the firm has received “Risk Management Program” status.

– Deloitte forensic specialists become involved in the audit planning for “high risk” clients in the Risk Management Program.

– There’s more tension built into the review processes of the audit engagement partner and the concurring partner.

– At the end of the audit for clients in the Risk Management Program, the audit team must document conclusions about the effectiveness of audit response to identified audit risks; a “Special Review Partner” must agree with them.

– Finally, Deloitte now develops and documents the circumstances for each particular company in the Risk Management Program to find its way out of the classification.

It gets even tougher …

A Good Day for Crypto Cashback and Bitcoin Trading

 

 

 

Today the Supreme Court resolved a decade of copyright litigation by supporting interoperability and openness, ruling that reimplementing an API by copying its declarations is legal fair use, even (or perhaps especially) when you’re building a competitive service. This was a case of two massive companies – Oracle and Google – fighting over Java, Android, and billions of dollars. But it was also about the quintessential user’s right and one of crucial importance to libraries: fair use. And after last year’s Georgia v. Public.Resource.Org decision, it has become the latest in a long line of Supreme Court decisions broadly supportive of fair use.

 

In a 6-2 decision, the Supreme Court held that Google’s copying of many declarations associated with the Java SE API (including only those lines of code that were needed to allow programmers to put their accrued talents to work in a new and transformative program with their own implementing code) was a fair use of that material as a matter of law. That means that this ruling applies to all APIs, not just the one at issue here.

 

“This decision is a win for the Open Web. In our digital world, businesses, nonprofits, libraries and individual developers use APIs everyday,” says Brewster Kahle, Internet Archive’s founder and Internet Hall of Famer. “We have seen copyright used as a tool to create enclosures and walled gardens. But the Court was clear: copyright cannot be used to harm the public interest.”

 

Importantly, the Court held that reimplementing the Java API was fair use even though Google copied the material intentionally. That fact actually supported a finding of fair use. That’s because Google’s purpose was “to allow programmers to work in a different computing environment without discarding a portion of a familiar programming language.” …
