The American poker player “Mark Newhouse” is one of the few poker professionals to qualify for the WSOP for the second consecutive time. This native of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, has been a regular poker player (cash game tables is what he enjoys the most) at Casino Commerce in Los Angeles for nearly 10 years now. He finished 9th place in the 2013 WSOP Main Event for a prize of $ 733,224.
For the 2014 wsop edition, which will run from November 10 to 11, Newhouse is armed enough to face his opponents: he is third in terms of chip counts. This year, he has accomplished some good wins without expressing too much stress. His huge stack is another key point that strengthens his confidence heading to the upcoming battle. Pending the ultimate stage of the 2014 WSOP, Newhouse seems to have nothing great to handle. What is on is that he will not set his foot for a game of poker to Commerce Casino.
Both qualified for the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup of football, France and Germany are going to meet again on the Brazilian pitch on Friday July 4th for the semifinals. Two teams with very redoubtable potency, the French team and the Mannschaft have a whole show to give to the spectators as well as for the enthusiasts of sports betting, especially as Friday won’t be the first match they will have to play. This Friday, it’s the match France-Germany which will open the quarterfinal phase for this edition of the World Cup of football. This will be neither the first one nor the last that these two European teams will confront in the World Cup Championship.
But it’s immediately the semifinal played in Seville which comes back in mind for all fans of football and free bet. In 1982 in Seville, the FRG played the penultimate phase of the World Cup against the French team; a match which ended by the defeat of the latter in a penalty shoot-out (5 à 4). Thirty two years later, the two neighboring countries, France and Germany, meet again after their respective victory on Nigeria and Algeria. The pitch risks being hot, and even more the atmosphere in the platforms of sport online, because it’s time for French players to take their revenge on their throwers of 32 years ago.

Surely, playing online games involves money and lots of money for some times. It makes people think that if you do not have money; your access to these online casinos is denied. And it is true. Most of casinos on the Internet request your personal information inclusive of your bank account or credit card number before giving you green light to their websites. Fortunately, there are best online casinos that belong to well known groups which let you play without paying anything. Indeed, you are giving opportunity to download their flash game software for free where you can play online games like slots, poker video and more. You can have fun with but also occasions to learn. You can experience the pleasure of playing attracting games. If you are new to these all, you can take all your time because there is no limit or deadline.
Once you have gotten used to the atmosphere at the casino it becomes time to pay closer attention to the unwritten rules at the playing tables. It really is matter of adopting good manners. This may sound silly, but as casino visitor you really are responsible for your own fun and the best thing is to basically ignore the other casino visitors.
Bear in mind that you are not allowed to touch anything: no opponents, no chips and no cards. They chips are on the table and they are only to be moved by the dealer to prevent collusion. Also refrain for commenting on the playing styles of your opponents. Let you co-players play how they want to play. Unrequested advice is considered patronizing by most players and will not be appreciated. Keep your goal in mind and stay focused on your own game.
Complaining about the dealer is also not done. Nobody is perfect and even dealers are only human. Of course it is possible to indicate when the dealers make a mistake (which is always possible), but make sure to stay positive and approachable. Never cause a scene, because this will only annoy your opponents and will not do anything for the good atmosphere.

The atmosphere is tense in the state of Missouri as the local Gaming Commission is to decide who is going to receive the last of the limited number of licences for casino operators. Competing cities are Cape Girardeau, St. Luis and Sugar Creek. Candidates are mainly decided upon based on the benefits they are able to present to the treasury and how far their ability to satisfy also local needs of their home towns goes. Before choosing a candidate who will then be allowed to proceed with the realisation of their building plan, the Commission considers the annual revenues and resulting taxes as one of the major factors. For example, the Cape Girardeau venue would, by estimate, create 450 jobs and over 17 million of incremental tax revenue. Results of the tough battle will be known soon.
Women are more and more interested in poker but if you compare them to men, their strategy is quite different. Men like playing with their instinct and women like playing with their suspicion. It can be strange for a lot of people but women can feel things. Nevertheless, suspicion it is not the only think to have when you play poker, you have also to analyse cards, guess the probability to win and also analyse the behaviour of your opponents. Something important to know is that women represent a little part of poker players. One 100 players, 1 player is a woman.
From now, I will introduce a number of women who scare the poker planet.
The first one is Kathy Liebert with 5 717 426$ of rewards. She is American of course but compare to a lot of women who play poker. Kathy Liebert is quite simple and discreet. She doesn’t like camera and prefer to be far from them. She is not very sexy and she likes to play with the same purple t-shirt and her pink hat most of the time, like a lucky charm. She has already won a bracelet in 2004 and she finishes quite often on a finale table. She has to hobby, she practises karate and also she likes stock exchange. So if you want to have a fight with her it would be better to do it in head up in poker!
Annie Duke was very popular to be the sister of Howard Lederer, a very good player in poker. Annie has reached the amount of 4 million dollars already. She is also American such like the best women player and Annie doesn’t play just for her but she plays also to help charity association. When she has time she doesn’t hesitate to participate to a tournament to hels children or homeless. He has another talent too. She is personal trainer in poker and the last player that she trains was Ben Afleck. Through her, Ben Aflleck has won a big tournament leaving really good professional players behind him and through that, popularity was more impressive.
Annette Obrestad is a young Norwich and she started to play at 15 years old on internet even if it was illegal. The leant a lot through the different website she was using and she pissed off a lot a poker player through her behaviour. She won a lot through online poker and by it, she started to be a poser and taunt everyone around her. Except that poker players didn’t appreciate it at all. And one of them told her what everyone was thinking about her. After that, she calmed down a lot. She has a rewards of 3 136 532$.
She is American but she is also French, she has the double nationality and she own a reward in poker of 2 639 589$. She speaks French and English as a mother tong. 2009 was her year.

Ever since man discovered he could place or provide odds for a bet to win more money than the original amount wagered, he has been doing this. Today with online betting shops and casinos, this has been made even easier. People place bets on some really strange things, but as long as players keep playing, bookies will keep providing the means for them to do so.
Novelty bets can be a lot of fun and you can place a bet on what sex the next heir to the throne will be or whether there is life on Mars, so in 1989, a Welshman went into his local betting shop and placed a whole string of novelty bets. He wanted to wager on his forecasts of events which would happen before the year 2000. These bets were placed at Ladbrokes, and just so you know they have an online casino, betting shop and bingo site too.
He placed five wagers, one on Cliff Richard being Knighted at 4 to 1, 3 to 1 on the rock group U2 still being together, another at 5 to 1 on Eastenders still being aired, and the same on Neighbours. He got odds of 8 to 1 on Home and Away still being active and in the new millennium, he walked back into Ladbrokes and walked out £194,400 richer – this is largest novelty bet win in history!
Poker players are not supposed to be gamblers if you listen to some of the experts speak about this game of skill, but Jonny Moss – poker legend, took a 15 to 1 bet with a man in a bar who said he had never lost a fight. Mr. Moss landed up at the local hospital and lost his bet. This proves, poker players really aren’t very good gamblers after all!
Another young British man – Ashley Revell wanted to bet everything he had on one spin of the live roulette table in Las Vegas, he sold everything and got together $136,000, he even emptied out his poker bankroll. This was his great adventure and even though discouraged by the casino, he placed his bet. Guess what? He won, he also went back home to the UK having doubled his money, on a red 7.
One of the most stupid gamblers in living history was a down and out blackjack player. It was 1995, he had lost everything, he smelled, his wife kicked him out and all he had to his name was a $400 social security check, he also happened to live in Las Vegas, so he gambled with it. He also won $1 million! But sadly gave it all back to the casino, including his $400!!!
William Lee Bergstrom wanted to win, or die trying; so in 1980 he walked into Benny Binion’s Horseshoe casino. Here a player could place one bet on a game, no limit, but could not raise the stakes in the same session, only in a new session. He placed $777 000 on the Craps table “Don’t Pass Line” and doubled his money, doubled a $590 000 bet, doubled another $190 000 and another $90 000, but like all bad gamblers, didn’t know when to call it a day. While on a losing streak, he gambled the rest of his money on a game of Russian Roulette, he lost; unfortunately you lose more than your money when you play this game.
