It has always been maintained though that Ivey and his accomplice Cheng Yin Sun did not commit fraud.
However, Ivey’s attorneys are asking for a “Final Judgement” so that Ivey can get his case before the Third Circuit — Ivey is also trying to avoid putting his $10m in escrow whilst the appeal is being processed.
As Dwan seems to be crawling back into the limelight hopefully there will be closure this year for Cates and everyone who placed a bet on the challenge.
I must say though, Cates always seems to comment on the matter in very polite terms — even in a recent Reddit AMA when asked about the status of the challenge Cate’s said: “Tom’s dad is sick and he is in New Jersey with him, later we will discuss how to proceed…”
In a recent Twitch stream from Bill Perkins’ Thirst Lounge challenge, multi-millionaire bad-boy Dan Bilzerian jumped onto Perkins’ account to play on Amercia’s Card Room (ACR) in some casual $10/$20 heads-up NLH.
Whatever way you cut it – whether you think what they did was a big deal or not – Perkins and Bilzerian were multi-accounting with no shits given. They were clearly breaching the terms of service of ACR.
So far there doesn’t seem to be any repercussions for the pair.
If this isn’t the coolest video to come out of the first-ever PokerStars Championship in the Bahamas, we don’t know what is.
While visiting the famed Fish Fry in Nassau, Patrick from Goldie’s Conch House gave us an educational look at what is considered the national food of the Bahamas, the conch. (He is saying conch, right?)
Slot machines now bring in the “real” money, and slot machines are played by both women and men of all ages. There are no secret tips that can guarantee a person will win on slot machines. However, if you’ve ever played poker, the strategies you learned at the table will be very valuable when playing slot machines. Whether you want to play at regular slot machines or find a bit specific ones such as millionaire genie or Rainbow riches, the poker knowledge will be of great importance. So, here are some tips you can use from poker experience in order to win big.
1. Determine your bankroll before you get to the casino
This is the most important tip to look for. Before you ever sit down to play a slot machine, you should have already determined a fixed amount of money that you are prepared to LOSE. You need to assume you are going to lose all of your money. If you’ve ever set foot in a Las Vegas casino and played poker, you must be fully prepared for the worst case scenario. Make sure you are okay with losing big amount of money, and if you are not, then reduce the amount. Do not have access to any other money while you are playing. Use the bankroll that you have, and that’s it.
2. Casino must be regulated and have independent third-party oversight
This strategy is very important because usually you find class II machines in casinos that are not state regulated. Most class II machines are found on gaming reservations where many state regulations do not apply. Many casinos are self-regulated by a tribal gaming counsel. This is not to say that they are unfair, but there needs to be independent third-party oversight with any casino. So, be careful which one you choose, and similarly with poker, some slot machines could be unapproved.
3. Limit your session playing time
In correlation with your session bankrolls will be the length of time for each gambling session. As you know from poker, no gambling session should be longer than two hours. At the end of two hours, you must take at least a thirty minute break. This break needs to be away from the casino floor. It can be in your room, in a restaurant, outside, wherever you prefer, but remove yourself from the casino atmosphere. It is very important to adhere to this rule. After two hours of play your body and mind become fatigued and begin to make rash decisions. You are no longer thinking logically, your emotions have taken over.
4. Set strict win limits
You may probably know someone who never leaves the casino a winner. This person will hit mini jackpots and maybe even a large jackpot, but they always manage to give it back to the casino. They do this by playing erratically. They may jump to a higher denomination or increase their session time; somehow they always come home empty-handed. This happens with playing poker more than anything else, so don’t forget that the next time you decide to play with slot machines.
During the PokerStars Championship Bahamas Kevin Martin opened up about his journey, from radio, to live poker, his stint in the Big Brother house, and finally about online poker and Twitch streaming.
Kevin talks candidly with PokerNews about getting on the Big Brother Canada show in its third season, how his friend Jaime Staples helped him improve his game, and the grind of live streaming on Twitch. It’s definitely worth a listen.
