The European Championship kicked off with a bang on Friday after Poland took on Greece and Russia swept aside the Czech Republic. Perceived by many to be the worst group of the tournament churned out seven goals, two red cards and a penalty in the two opening encounters as the four footballing nations announced themselves to the world.


One man in particular was under the spotlight before the game begun and lived up to the early tournament hype. That man was Poland’s leading striker Robert Lewandowski. After 17 minutes, the 23-year-old Borussia Dortmund striker had scored the first goal of Euro 2012 after some suspect defending by their Greek counterparts.


30 goals in all competitions as Dortmund romped to a domestic double saw his stock rise considerably last year, leading to interest from clubs across the continent. However, all appear to have now been trumped by Manchester United after national coach Franciszek Smuda claimed the powerful front-man was on his way to Old Trafford.


Having released Michael Owen and with Dimitar Berbatov set to leave the club over the summer, a new striker for United is a priority. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be keen on adding Lewandowski, a target man with an eye for goal, should the Bulgarian leave and having already raided Dortmund for Shinji Kagawa, a move for the Polish international will certainly be on the cards, with some suggesting a deal has already been arranged.

Legends of slot online Poker would often tell you that relying on luck is the best way to lose a game. Outside the Poker world, luck is said to be an important factor in winning games. However, once you sit at the table all that matters is the hard work you have put in before the game and the planning that you have done prior to sitting at the table. Like Vince Lombard once said – ‘The harder we work, the luckier we get.’ However, it cannot be ruled out that luck is a vital factor in Poker games. The fact is luck in poker works differently.


One might have noticed how bad players get lucky most of the time. They manage to win pot odds from nowhere, make unbelievable catches and fill up a bottom two pair against an opponent with a top pair. For bad players, luck always seems to give them an edge. The truth is only bad players need luck and they can win only when they get lucky. Believe it or not, this could be a natural design.


Good players, on the other hand, play their best and use their best strategies to win the game. Of course, they do get lucky at times when they make a flush draw on the river card. However, this may not be entirely luck at play. Good players would have been getting pot odds on that draw and would have built the pot correctly too. In their case, it is more of mathematical analysis than pure luck. It is not lucky when AA beats J9. Good players try their best not to rely on luck.


It would sound funny to you when your opponent tells you that you were lucky to have won …





If you want to learn how to bet on one of the easiest sports you can possibly bet on (out of the 4 major sports), then basketball is made for you. The teams that are favored or expected to win are called the favored teams, and the ones who are expected to lose are called the underdogs. This expectation is based on the history of the teams together with their odds. The team that will be expected to win will lay points to the underdogs for betting purposes. For example, if the Knicks were playing against Celtics, most of the gamblers, bettors would rather bet on the Celtics (to win the game).


Basketball betting is very similar to football because it uses the point spread for wagering bets on both teams, as well as the over/under numbers. If you already know how to bet on football, you pretty much know how to bet on basketball, too. One of the most common methods that gamblers like to use while betting on basketball involves the point spread, which is kind of a handicap that bookies impose on one side (team) that will make both sides equal when it comes to betting.


You might be asking yourself, how does this work? It is quite natural that when the two teams meet on their court, one is always going to be better Togel Singapore than the other. If all that gamblers (bettors) had to do was to simply pick one team that is the winning team, every one of them would just wager their bet on the team with the best odds, and collect their money.


The example we can use is from the Super Bowl 50 when the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers played against each …



Generally speaking, in golf, there are three different bet types that you can make in any given golf tournament. Gamblers are able to place a bet on a certain golfer to win the whole game, they can wager their money on a golfer to be put into top three places or just bet that the golfer is going to end higher than some other golfer. There are a number of tournaments that would allow wagering your money on a bet that is called a “Field”, which will consist of all the other golfers on top of the ones that will be listed in the sportsbook. Even if the gambler gets more than just one golfer with one bet, that field will almost always be filled with golfers that are given the least opportunity to win the game and will usually be avoided. With this, the odds will naturally be lower if you decide to bet on one of those golfers to finish in the top three places, since the sportsbook will have to pay off 3 different winning wagers, and not just one.


The JBO VIETNAM bet that is not so commonly placed in this game is the head-to-head finish between two golf players. With this bet, the player does not really care in what place does his golfer finish in, as long as the golfer he bet on finishes higher than the other golfer.  It is very simple, and the bottom line is that if you have bet on any other sports events it will not be hard to catch up to golf betting. Just remember, one of the most important things when betting on golf is that you need to find the best line. A lot of sportsbooks will have different kinds of lines on …

O.K., I Did It!!Alex Rodriguez was supposed to be the savior. He was the player that fans were looking to take them out of the steroid era. He was going to break the records of all the steroid using players and restore the sanctity of the national past time.


The Casino Affiliate Programs, better known as CAP, had been online casino affiliates equivalent to Alex Rodriguez. An organization that was all about seeking justice from dirty casinos. A group founded for the sole purpose of protecting the industry within which they worked. They had their members’ trust much like A-Rod had the trust of baseball fans.


Then, in the span of a couple of months, both idols fell, and fell hard. A-Rod has been caught with his hand in the steroid cookie jar, and CAP has been exposed for having conflicting agendas. So the question must be asked, which of the two frauds was worse.


To start with one must examine the nature of the crimes committed against a loyal fan base. Rodriguez took steroids at a time when most of the leagues players were experimenting with the performance enhancing substances.


CAP allegedly had an ownership stake in one of the online casinos that affiliates were drilling on CAP’s own message boards. The reason, the card room was not paying their affiliates, a major no-no in the online casino industry. This would have been the equivalent to Alex Rodriguez owning a stake in the Boston Red Sox while playing for the Yankees. Worse crime here goes to CAP, in a no-brainer.


Next would be the apology part of the crimes against their followers. A-Rod came clean to Peter Gammons on Monday morning and admitted what he did was wrong. He explained his reasons …

Pai gow is an intriguing gambling game that has been popular for years in Asia and recently has gained a following at casinos here in the United States. The


game is played with thirty-two tiles with the traditional domino-like engraved dots. (Some casinos even refer to pai gow tiles as “dominos” because they are so similar.)


Setting up the game requires the dealer to shuffle the tiles, stacking them into eight stacks of four, and then rolling three dice. The total number rolled determines which player will receive the first stack of tiles, after which all the remaining stacks are handed out to players, vacant player positions on the table, and to the dealer.


Pai Gow – Pai Gow Poker Tiles


Next, the players and the dealer individually produce two hands made up of four tiles each, a so-called high hand and a low high hand. The object of the game is to create two hands that are both higher than the bank’s hand. In pai gow all the players take turns being the bank. That means the player who is acting as the bank will bankroll against all other players at the table, paying out winnings to other players if he loses. On the flip side, the player acting as the bank for that round will take winnings from everyone else if he has the high hand and also wins over other players in the case of a tie (tiles that have the same value and rankings). This game is similar to baccarat in that it gives the player some of the best house odds. In pai gow the player/house odds are nearly even. That being the case, the house charges players a 5 percent commission on all winning bets.


Pai gow …



Mangas Captial Gaming (MCG), which is the majority owner of Betclick has announced that they have now acquired Expekt’s sports betting and gaming operations. After a long series of discussions and negotiations it is believed that eventually agreed to sell for between €110m and €125m.


Expekt is a Malta based operation that has caught the eye by many in the online gambling industry. They provide sports betting services for over 20 countries across Europe. Their presence has been especially felt in Eastern Europe. They have established themselves as a well known brand that clients can safely place bets at. Many pundits feel that Expekt will form a fitting relationship with Betclick. Betclick is also a Malta based operation but is mainly concentrated on the French market.


In 1999 Christian Haupt and Conny Cesar founded what we now know as Expekt. These two also own casino and poker software operation Tain but it is understood that this company was not involved in the deal. It is also believed that their retail stores in Germany and Austria are not part of the deal either.


Mangas Captial Gaming will be buying the Expekt sportsbook backend as well as their marketing functions and customer base. It is expected that the current management team at Expekt, including their CEO Per Widerstrom will be retained. It is unclear at the present time as to whether there will be any redundancies among the rest of the staff currently working at Expekt.


MCG bought 75% of last May for an undisclosed fee. They are also rumoured to be in talks with Nordicbet in regards to a possible acquisition of their operation. In times of economic uncertainty it seems as though the team at MCG are going from strength to strength. …
