Some personal annoucements…
First, I’m heading back to the Paragon Casino and Resort this weekend. In fact, through some personal contacts, I’ll be staying at the casino for free tomorrow night. That means more time at the poker table (and craps table, I can’t help myself). You can expect a slot hoki report by Monday at the latest.
And speaking of Monday, I’ll finally be online at home again. I bought myself a new laptop computer and I’ll be on Cox High Speed Internet. That means a return to the virtual poker tables.
Enjoy your weekends, I’ll definitely enjoy mine!
Paging Lex Luthor
For a long time, I called myself a traditionalist. In one extreme period, I referred to myself as a Luddite. Eventually, I coined then settled on the best description of my philosophy on sport, gaming, and life in general:
I’m a neo-purist.
That means I don’t like artificial turf. That means I think the addition of the three-point line, while deviating from tradition, added an element to the game that now is indispensible.
That means I think we should dance with who brought us. If for some reason said dancing partner wants to learn a new dance step, then so be it, but it better be a good dance move and not some silly cabbage patch dance.
That is a long way of saying the following:
Manufacturing poker villain personalities for the sake of better TV is a road that will do nothing but eventually make the game as enjoyable to watch as most of the reality shows on TV now.
For an abbreviated discussion of the topic, make sure to take a look at the comments section of CJ’s live blog of the most recent WSOP ESPN broadcast. There is decided dissention about the place poker villians hold in the game of poker, and by extension, televised poker.
Witness: Steve Fishman, after a lengthy round of high-fiving, after-thought handshakes, and declaring his “Crew” the ring-leaders of a poker coup d’etat, takes the Nestea Plunge onto the felt.
Witness: Poker Brat, Phil Hellmuth, declares that if it weren’t for luck, he’d win every game of poker he played.
Witness: Phil “The Unabomber” Laak runs behind the dealer in mid-hand to get a glimpse of the river card before his opponent.
Witness: Every point-and-poke, fist-pumping, suckout scream that you see on almost every televised broadcast.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the current trend in professional sports. You know the one. It’s the belief among certain “superstar” players that their talent, and more importantly, their personality should be respected more than the game itself. From sock-Sharpie autograph signings to end-zone cell phone calls, there are players out there who honestly believe the game is more about them than it is about…the game.
Sure, it’s no new thing. There was the Ickey Shuffle. There was the Superbowl Shuffle. Shoot, the Babe even called his dinger in the days before reality television created characters ad naseum.
But, here …

Have you been playing on situs slot deposit pulsa ? If not, here is what you have been missing out on.
PokerStars is having a 25 Billion Bash, and everyone is invited to join the celebration! Just over 18 months after their 10 Billionth Hand was dealt, they are now on the verge of dealing their landmark 25 Billionth Hand, and they’re not going to let such an occasion go unmarked. They’re going to be celebrating in the only way they know how – by having a bash, full of promotions that will give away some huge prizes!
25% Reload Bonus
Pokerstars is offering its biggest ever reload right now. Reload you account, and get a 20x in VPPs 25% reload bonus, up to a $1000 max. This means the following: if you reload your account with the maximum amount, which is $1000, you will get a 25% bonus of that sum (whic equates $250) added to your account. To release the bonus, you have to play an equivalent of 20x the bonus amount (in this case 5,000) in VPPS.
Oh, and HURRY UP! This bonus is only valid until February 18th. To take full advantage of this promotion, you may need to email support@pokerstars.com to have them increase your depositing limits from the default $600; and please be aware that some payment methods have controls that PokerStars cannot influence (e.g. eChecks).
Milestone Hands
The action begins before the 25 billionth hand is dealt, because PokerStars will be giving away cash prizes throughout the event to players involved in each one millionth hand dealt in cash games. Milestone Hands will run from the 24.85 billionth hand to the 25 billionth. To keep track of how many hands have been dealt so far, keep an eye on the ‘Game#’ in the top left corner of the table view.
Milestone Hands will be announced on the table with a pop-up message, before play is paused to ramp up the excitement. A host will then arrive at the table to explain exactly what’s happening. Players involved in every millionth hand dealt during the 25 Billion Bash will win the following:
Limit Winner The Rest
Micro $300 $125
Low $750 $250
Medium $1,250 $500
High $2,500 $1,00
There will also be a VIP multiplier, with bonuses for the following VIP tiers:
VIP Tier Multiplier
SilverStar 15% Bonus
GoldStar 30% Bonus
PlatinumStar 60% Bonus
Supernova 120% Bonus
Supernova Elite 200% Bonus
For example, if you are dealt into a Milestone Hand on a Medium stakes table and win the hand, you’d receive $1,250. If you are also a PlatinumStar VIP, you’d receive an additional $750 (60% Bonus).
Mega Milestone
Even the biggest live card room in the world, dealing cards 24/7, would take over 300 years to reach 25 billion hands! History will be made the moment PokerStars deals its 25 billionth hand, and PokerStars has got the prize to match the occasion.
The winner of the Mega Milestone Hand will receive the following:

Walking, running, jumping, skipping – these are but a handful of activities our feet do, yet most of the time we take them for granted. That is, until we get an infection. While our feet are sturdy — containing 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles — they are susceptible to disease.

The skin between the toes is soft, supple and often moist; while the skin on the heel is firm and the undersurface of the forefoot is tough enough to take consistent pounding but flexible enough to bend. It’s important then to take steps to ensure the skin of your feet remains healthy. Here’s some quick facts to get you motivated:

Conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in the feet – so foot ailments can be your first sign of more serious medical problems.
1/4 of all the bones in the human body are down in your feet, and when they are out of alignment, so is the rest of your body. You can also learn about “how to change your facial structure“, click here

Women have about four times as many foot problems as men. High heels are partly to blame.
Walking is the best exercise for your feet. It also contributes to your general health by improving circulation, helping with weight control, and promoting well being.
The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to about 115,000 miles over a lifetime. That’s enough to go around the circumference of the earth four times.
COMMON FOOT PROBLEMS:
Fungal infection, otherwise known as Athlete’s Foot (Tinea pedis), feeds off the dead surface of human skin, hair and nails. It is most common after puberty, and more common in men, and fungus feet can spread to the groin, resulting in Jock Itch (Tinea Cruris). See www.FungalGuide.ca for more information.

Moist conditions and a lack of oil glands allow the fungus to grow, but is uncommon in people who don’t wear shoes. Usually generated in locker rooms, gyms, and public facilities, there are three kinds of fungus – Microsporum, Trichophyton, Epidermophyton, the most common being Trichophyton Rubrum.

DOES IT SPREAD?
Infection is easily spread from the skin to the toenails (e.g. big toenail scratches itchy undersurface of foot and becomes infected). Cracking of skin especially between toes may allow bacteria into the skin and spread up the foot and leg. With Jock Itch the fungus may spread from the towel drying feet to groin. People who are diabetic, on chemotherapy, are HIV positive or on immunosuppressive drugs need to take special care of their feet.

FOUR PATTERNS OF INFECTED FEET:
between toes (red, mushy changes in web spaces)
dry, scaly skin on whole underside of foot, and cracks on the heels are common
tiny blister-like eczema on instep
skin and toe nail involvement.
TREATMENT OF FOOT FUNGUS:
Antifungal creams
Descaling moisturizers containing lactic acid
Oral antifungal medication may be needed for those with chronic …

Just when you thought the world’s best poker player couldn’t possibly garner any more accolades, Phil Ivey once again proves everyone wrong. Besides being the most feared cash game player in the world, part owner and member of Team FullTilt, and fresh off a final table appearance at the 2009 togel Main Event, Ivey took things one step further in January at the Aussie Millions $100,000 High-Roller Event. Ivey’s 2nd-place finish, worth $600,000, moved him past Daniel Negreanu to the top of the all-time tournament money list.
Phil Ivey is widely considered the best poker player in the world, but his story to the top is just as remarkable. Playing as an underage teen in Atlantic City in the early ’90s, Ivey went by the name “Jerome” which appeared on his fake I.D. After dominating the stud games in AC for years he finally made the idman Azərbaycan move to Vegas where he quickly became a household name in the poker world. One of his more storied ventures was playing for the “corporation” who took on Texas businessman Andy Beal for huge sums of money in 2006. Playing up to $50k/$100k blinds it was rumored that Ivey won more than $16,000,000 from the amateur, forcing Beal to quit the game.

While he does have seven WSOP bracelets it is his two near misses in the Main Event that most remember. In 2003 Ivey finished 10th when he took back to back bad beats against Freddy Deeb and eventual winner Chris Moneymaker. This past year he finished 7th when his AK was outdrawn by Darvin Moon’s AQ when all the money went in before the flop.

Despite those “failures” Ivey continues to plug away, winning bracelets in many different games including Pot-Limit Omaha, 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo, SHOE, 7 Card Stud, NL 2-7 Lowball, and OE Split. Overall he has collected nearly $5,000,000 in cashes at the WSOP alone. This past year he won two bracelets and collected more than $2,000,000 in prop bets from fellow poker professionals. Ivey also owns one WPT bracelet for winning the LA Poker Classic in 2008 for $1,596,000.

While Ivey has claimed the top spot he does sit on a perilous perch, as less than $2,000,000 separates the top six players:

1. Phil Ivey $12,813,990
2. Daniel Negreanu $12,432,367
3. Jamie Gold $12,201,061
4. Phil Hellmuth Jr. $11,018,271
5. Scotty Nguyen $10,955,557
6. Joe Hachem $10,856,216
7. Peter Eastgate $10,729,565
8. Allen Cunningham $10,398,118
9. Erik Seidel $9,925,179
10. T.J. Cloutier $9,925,179…
