Comparing the Chauvinist Man to a Tokyoslot88 Macho Man

I haven’t read the book yet, but I heard of a new book critical of the feminist movement. It’s Ceasefire: Why Women and Men Must Join Forces to Achieve True Equality (Free Press), by Cathy Young, a reporter for the Boston Globe.

The message of the book is relevant to women who play poker. The message is that the feminist movement has moved from a movement aimed at equality to one aimed at giving women the upper hand in society. Young thinks that’s a bad thing. Whether you agree with that or not, it has some relevance to poker, where women are often seen moaning about a lack of equality in poker rather than using the situation to gain an advantage.

Women poker players can usually profit by adjusting their game to exploit the foibles of male opponents. Different kinds of men call for different approaches, sometimes the differences between male stereotypes can be subtle. Two different kinds of men are those that I call chauvinists and those I call macho.

Chauvinists

Chauvinistic men who tend to think all women are weak, predictable, tight players and that women have good judgment. He’ll tend to try to be tricky when playing against women and he’ll tend to ignore any information he might be able to get from observation of a woman.

Macho men can’t stand to let a woman win or take control of the betting. This kind of man can’t stand to lose, and especially can’t stand to lose to a woman. He’ll tend to develop an acute case of FPS trying to outplay an aggressive woman. He’s usually doomed.

Playing chauvinistic men.

In a previous article, I talked about playing tokyoslot88 to exploit a chauvinistic man. They tend to react to aggressive women with hyperaggression of their own when they fear their hand is second best and that’s an easily exploitable tendency.

Playing macho man

You should play against a macho player in a similar way that you’d play against a chauvinist, but you need to be more careful. The macho player is not likely to try to play …

How to Execute a Controlled UFAShot

The reader may wish to refer to my earlier articles for introductory information on achieving an advantage at casino Craps by using dice control.

If you’re a right-handed shooter, throwing from stick-left, you will stand parallel to the table with the arm rail across your front mid-section. The forearm of your non-throwing arm will be flat along the chip rail for support. You will lean out over the table slightly so you can reach down with your throwing hand to set and pick up the dice. Your body will be facing the boxman.

If you are right-handed and throwing from stick-right, you will stand with your right side up against the arm rail, perpendicular to the table. You will directly face the stickman and your target area at the far wall. Your non-throwing left arm will probably be down by your side and out of the way. One thing that you may have noticed if you tried throwing right-handed from stick-right is that you are throwing over a greater distance. This is true because you are throwing across the front of your body plus the stickman’s body. You will discover that you are using some upper arm motion (pivoting about the shoulder) in order to deliver the dice.

With the right-handed shooter at stick-left, his right arm is already closest to the stickman (and the target area) and he is only throwing across the stickman’s body as he extends his arm towards the back wall. His forearm is pivoting about the elbow so he has a little less arm motion and a little less distance to cover. The right-handed, stick-left may be slightly preferred for these reasons, but both positions are excellent.

One caveat here for the stick-right or stick-left position—be careful not to throw the UFA dice at an obtuse angle to the back wall. Your two-dimensional trajectory should be perpendicular to the far wall. In addition, your dice should bounce off the flat portion, not the corners of the back wall. When right-handed throwers shoot from stick-right, they tend to stand straight up, not getting out over the …

All in the Sbobet88 Family

My sweetie’s father, Raoul, is some sort of character. He’s a bit older than Filthy Willy, has been married eight or nine times (everyone has lost count) and has daughters younger than my sweetie’s son. He’s tall, stately, dignified looking with a full head of white hair, and looks very much like Cesar Romero (when Cesar Romero was alive, that is). Every single night he goes out either to dance, or to sing karaoke (well, he calls it singing, but anyone who’s had to listen to him bellow six choruses of “I Did it My Way” might beg to differ), or to play poker.

What he calls playing poker, that is.

He once told me that Barbara inherited 98 percent of the poker talent in the family, while he got the other 2 percent. He wildly overestimates his share. While he may do OK in low-limit hold’em games—or at least he says he does–his passion is Omaha, a game for which he is about as suited as Big Denny would be for dancing ballet in Swan Lake. He does have amazing stamina, though. When he goes to Vegas, he can stay up two or three nights straight playing cards. Or maybe it’s because he doesn’t want to waste money on a hotel room that he could be using for poker.

It’s unfortunate, but the subtleties of Omaha seem to completely escape him. I think the only time he ever won at it was when his table shared a jackpot that two other players hit. I once played at his table, and felt so sorry for him that I only check-raised him 12 times and tried not to peek at his cards, except when I absolutely had to.

Raoul doesn’t wear glasses, but he is farsighted, and holds his Sbobet88 cards about three feet up in the air and three feet away from him. Not only can everyone at the table see his hand, so can everybody at the other tables … even at the tables in the restaurant. Everyone in the casino can read his cards better than he can. …

ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล Review of Poker Essays Volume III

Mason Malmuth has been one of the most prolific poker writers over the last twenty years. Every few years, he collects the best articles he has written, revises them, and publishes them as the next installment in his Poker Essays series. Poker Essays Volume III represents what Malmuth thinks were his best essays to have appeared in the magazines Poker Digest and Card Player as well as on the Two Plus Two web site over the last five years.

The articles are divided into seven sections, more to break up the book I think than because the categories are all that important. The sections include General Concepts, Technical Ideas, Strategic Ideas, In the Cardrooms, Hands to Talk About, The Ciaffone Quiz, and Two More Quizzes. If these categories seem familiar, it’s because five of them have appeared in all three volumes of the author’s Poker Essays series.

As one would expect from Malmuth, most of these essays are quite good, although they tend to not be as fundamental as the authors work in Gambling Theory and Other Topics or even the earlier Poker Essays books. This shouldn’t be too surprising, as the author has laid the groundwork for his ideas on poker in his previous works. The articles in Poker Essays Volume III are predominantly focusing on refining ideas Malmuth (sometimes with David Sklansky) has presented in earlier books, or they compare or evaluate key concepts or situations.

Because of this, the reader would probably be best served by reading a great deal of the Two Plus Two catalog before attacking this book. I would suggest that reading and studying Hold’em Poker for Advanced Players, Seven Card Stud for Advanced Players, Sklansky’s Theory of Poker, and Gambling Theory and Other Topics before working on Malmuth’s latest. However, this isn’t strictly necessary. Also, while it would make some sense to read the first two volumes in the Poker Essays series first, this isn’t critical for understanding his latest book.

There are places in Malmuth’s essays where I might mildly disagree with the author on certain points and ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล strategies, although …

Global Gaming Expo Wrap-up with Judi Online Terpercaya Bonus

It’s some time on Thursday (afternoon, I think). I’m back from Vegas, a little tired and with a new appreciation for neon. I thought it would be a good idea to share my impressions of the inaugural G2E and provide a wrap-up to my reports from the show.

Those of you who have been reading the reports may have noticed that I didn’t file a story on Wednesday. That had something to do with Tuesday night’s all-you-can-eat seafood buffet at the Rio, several hours of Blackjack, and a trip to the rooftop bar.

Entering the Global Gaming ExpoBut it didn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things, because there wasn’t really anything going on on Wednesday. And unfortunately, that sort of sums up things for the show as a whole.

The first ever Global Gaming Expo was interesting because of what it was trying to accomplish – the gaming industry putting on a show for itself, as it were. But as I mentioned in Tuesday’s report, the online gambling industry didn’t have much of a presence.

I was hoping that industry experts who presented at the conference would be offering new insight into this sector of the gaming business, but issues such as Indian gaming and casino marketing got more attention.

The topic did come up during a State of the Industry discussion that involved American Gaming Association (AGA) chairman Frank Fahrenkopf, MGM Mirage CEO Terry Lanni, and Park Place CEO Tom Gallagher.

According to Fahrenkopf, the AGA doesn’t support online gaming because it believes it isn’t possible to effectively regulate the industry.

Gallagher supported that assessment, and noted that Park Place is reluctant to enter into the online betting world because of the public perception of Internet gaming.

Lanni, whose company has just been issued an online gaming license by the Isle of Man, not surprisingly disagreed with that sentiment. He argued that the regulatory issues have been properly addressed and suggested that U.S. gaming companies will miss the boat if they wait too long.

This ‘accidental’ discussion notwithstanding, there were only two Judi Online Terpercaya conference …

Soccer – Ronaldo not interested in sideshow

 

Cristiano Ronaldo has said he will not be concerning himself with Lionel Messi and is only interested in helping Real Madrid win the first ‘El Clasico’ of the new La Liga season on Saturday. Luis Enrique’s Barcelona will make the hotly-anticipated trip to the Spanish capital having had an extra day’s rest from Tuesday’s 3-1 win against Ajax in the Champions League. Ronaldo and Camp Nou icon Messi have long been pitted together as big rivals for the world’s best-player tag, but the Portugal superstar says Saturday’s showdown is not about …

The Bellagio Five-Diamond World Poker Classic — Part 1

In a previous column (“The Player of the Year Race,” Vol. 18/No. 2, Jan. 28, 2005), I set the stage for my final attempt at winning Card Player’s Player of the Year honors. I’d led for most of the year, but out of nowhere, David Pham came from behind and passed me with just one event left — the $15,000 buy-in Five-Diamond World Poker Classic championship with 376 entrants. All I needed to do was crack the final nine and I’d regain the lead, as long as David or John Juanda didn’t finish higher.

 

For the two weeks prior to the event, I was totally useless. I had no focus, no motivation, and just no shot whatsoever. Coming into the main event, though, I felt great. I got all of that sloppy play out of my system and was ready to give it 110 percent in this event. I just love it that athletes always say that — as if 100 percent isn’t good enough. Well, if it were possible to give it 110 percent, that was my plan.

 

From hand one, I was totally calm. My goal on day one was to get every single chip that I was supposed to get. Many old-school thinkers believe that day one is a day of survival. While I respect them, they are just wrong. Poker’s changed so much in the last five years that surviving on day one should take a backseat to scooping up some dead money.

 

After all, the worst players in the tournament are likely to go broke on day one — and I want those chips. If I don’t get them, someone else will. If it doesn’t work out and I get knocked out on day one, so be it. More often than not, I’ll receive a Christmas gift here or a birthday present there. You’d be amazed at some of the hands people are willing to put all of their money in with on day one.

 

In one extreme case, I remember getting it all in with the nut flush on the …

Will Domino99 Pkv Australia Finally Embrace Asian Football?

One of the highlights of the Asian football scene in 2013 was the AFC Champions League Final between FC Seoul and Guangzhou Evergrande. Both games (it was played over two legs) were played in front of 50,000+ crowds, and both games were a fantastic advertisement for Asian football. Neither game was shown on FOX SPORTS. This was the first time they haven’t broadcast the AFC Champions League Final.

 

After seven years as a member of the Domino99 Pkv the coverage should be increasing, not decreasing and yet that is exactly what is happening.

 

There was, not that I saw, any word at all on any FOX SPORTS production about the AFC Champions League Final. Not a word. And this is despite them owning the rights to the competition.

 

SBS on the other hand, on their weekly show The World Game, dedicated a segment of the hour long program to the AFC Champions League Final and had their reporter, and arguably the best Asian football journalist going around, Scott McIntyre, in Guangzhou for the second leg.

 

Is it any wonder fans of the A-League teams competing in the ACL are left saying “who?” when the draw is held when there is little coverage of the tournament?

 

This isn’t a problem exclusive to Australia, it’s the same right around Asia, but it’s one we should look to fix. This year it is quite possible that there will be three A-League teams in the ACL. That means that, for the group stage at least, there will be three games each match day. That’s good, that’s already a marked increase on last year. But what happens if/when the Australian teams are eliminated? Does it again disappear from our screens?

 

This is a tournament that will involve a lot of players who will take part in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup here in Australia. Again, it is in FOX SPORTS commercial interest for that tournament that be a success and attract as many eyeballs as possible. If fans know and are familiar with the players involved then there is …

Wayne drops keep falling on my Qiu Qiu Online head

 

 

I am no stranger to a lazy stereotype. I’m half-Irish and I’m married to a Scot, so some people believe we stay at home all day smoking crack and peeling potatoes; which is only half true.

 

It could be worse though, I could be bald. Britney Qiu Qiu Online Spears was considered a wholesome entertainer when she had flowing locks; but the moment she showed solidarity with the follicly challenged, the authorities took her children away.

 

It’s not just tubby Americans who persecute the hairless. When Andy Johnson had a little decoration on his head, he was awarded penalties and his goals were allowed to stand; now he’s shunned like Lewis Hamilton on a weekend trip to Majorca.

 

Personally I think it’s a case of raging gingerism, as baldness is their only legitimate hope of a life free or mockery. I’ll make a stand against these peladophobic gingerphobes by supporting AJ’s Everton at 4/7 against a struggling Reading.

 

Ryan Babel is another player who deserves our sympathy. Rafa perplexingly continues to bench the flying Dutchman: the only way he’ll be promoted to a starter is if he bumps into Frank Lampard. Chelsea will devour the struggling Reds at a mouthwatering 11/10.

 

Harry Redknapp has hit the jackpot with the signing of Jermain Defoe. The Pompey manager is just like King Midas – it’s believed that the King’s son was a real nause. I’ll be droning on endlessly about the 9/4 for a draw between Bolton and Portsmouth.

 

Derby were a lot less successful with their attempts at January shopping. Paul Jewell signed Laurent Robert on a free transfer; I think he overpaid. Tottenham are the weekend banker at 8/13 against the awful Rams.

 

Birmingham were dealt a knockout blow by a player named Villa last week, so it was a typical Derby match. It’s just one win in eleven matches now for the Blues; West Ham look a great shout at 17/20 to increase the pressure on the Big Eck.

 

Premier League attendances now average 36,000 a match, which is …

Blackjack is King of the card Agen Slot games

 

 

Although it may not be as popular as the slot machines, Blackjack is King of the card games. Simple to learn, Blackjack is one of the few online casino games that can actually return a Player’s Advantage when played with accurate strategy. There are several variations of Blackjack, more of which can be found on the internet than in land-based casinos.

 

Blackjack can be played with as little as one deck and up to eight, and depending on the version, can be played with one hand or multiple hands at a time. Although you are more likely to find higher table minimums in land-based casinos, online blackjack is accommodating to every bankroll and can normally be played with stakes as low as $1.

 

The objective of agen slot blackjack is to shape a hand near a point total of twenty-one without going over (busting). All cards are worth their numeric value, while face cards (Jacks/Queens/Aces) are worth ten points and Aces are worth 1 or 11 points, depending on which value will get the hand closer to twenty-one without going over.

 

All games are played between the player and dealer, with each being dealt two initial cards. The only difference is that one of the dealer’s cards is facedown. The player must then make a decision to draw additional cards (hit) or abstain from drawing (stand). In between, options to take insurance, surrender a hand, split hands and doubling bet amounts will present themselves.

 

This is where the Basic Blackjack strategy has its advantage. Based on mathematical odds, the strategy informs players when to take the appropriate actions, depending on what the dealer’s upturned card is and the total value of the player’s hand. As the case is in any casino game, there is no guarantee of winning at blackjack. However, if the basic strategy is used with 100% accuracy 100% of the time, a player will at least come out even.

 

Here are a few tips to keep in mind: Do not take Insurance if it is offered to you (when the …
