Gambling Prop Bets, Gambling and Poker Legends

Hey High Rollers, crazy famous prop bets today. Why? well, because we just heard of the $1.2 million dollar wager between Bill Perkins and Dan Bilzerian. Enjoy.

High Stakes Prop Bet
High stakes poker players Dan Bilzerian and Bill Perkins have shaken hands on a major wager, one that involves Bilzerian riding a bicycle from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in a 48-hour span. If the playboy Instagram star does he’ll collect on the $1.2 million bet. Perkins, a wealthy hedge fund manager, is known for making huge prop bets (most recently a bet with Antonio Esfandiari that resulted in ‘The Magician’ peeing at the table and getting DQ’d from there PCA in the Bahamas), against Bilzerian, who spent $100,000 on Powerball tickets for a $1.5 billion draw. Crazy stuff. Bilzerian tweeted that he hasn’t been on a bike in 15 years and he’ll now have to cover the roughly 300 miles in just two days. What do you think?

Bill Perkins
An avid poker player, who cashed for $1.9 million in the Big One for One Drop at the WSOP, Perkins focusses on venture capital and energy markets. He founded Small Ventures USA, L.P. in 1997 and later joined Centaurus Energy in 2002. He now manages Skylar Capital.

‘The Mouth’ Lost in the Forrest
In 2007, Mike Matusow got down from 241 pounds to 181 pounds and collected on a $100,000 weight loss bet with fellow multiple bracelet winner Ted Forrest. A few years later the two made another famous wager with Forrest dropping wight this time, And, he did. Forrest shed 48 pounds in three months to pocket a whopping $2 million.

The Johnny Moss Sucker Punch
Johnny Moss, legendary poker world champ and member of the Hall of Fame, once bet a guy who had never lost a bar fight that he could beat him. His price? 15-to-1. The stipulation? That he got to throw the first punch. So, Moss hit the guy from behind, in the head, but failed to knock him out and, as a result, suffered broken bones and a night in the hospital.
“Fifteen-to-one was too good to pass up,” he said.

Eat a Burger Baby!
Controversial poker great Howard Lederer, a known vegetarian on the poker circuit (when he was welcome), accepted a $10,000 wager to eat a hamburger, which he easily downed. Lederer gave his rival, David Grey, who hates olives, a chance to double up by eating a few. Apparently Grey hates olives more than he hates losing five figures because he gave up the cash.

Where Everybody Knows Your Name!
The first of two bets between fictional characters to make the list is one of my favorite episodes of Cheers and involves the gang growing beards for a month. Sam, Norm, Cliff and Frasier each throw in $20, agreeing to let Carla judge the entries on “length, body, fullness, luster, sheen and bounce.” All of them do pretty well, but Cliff has a little bit of trouble until he finds some “industrial adhesive products.”

Hilarious clip from ‘The Nuts’ by ESPN. Love Billy Gazes.

Barkely Vs Bavetta in Foot Race!

“If you’re committed to being a professional gambler, and you want to be the best you can be, you spend every waking moment trying to figure out a way to beat the game.”
– Billy Walters, Legendary Gambler (from Richard Munchkin’s book, Gambling Wizards)

WSOP Bracelet Winner Analyzes a Hand of Omaha Hi Low

Hey High Rollers, very happy to bring this post with the aid of my buddy Calen ‘Big Wheel’ McNeil, a Canadian, who in 2013 won WSOP gold in Event #20, $1,500 Omaha Hi Low 8 or Better. The following year he finished 4th in the very same event. The guy can play! Here, he responds to a listener question about a hand in a $5 NLO8 tourney on Full Tilt Poker.

Listener Question:

I was in the hijack seat, with the blinds at 120/240 in a game of No Limit Omaha Eight or Better, and I raised to 720 with AK36 (3 clubs, including the Ace). The button calls. The small blind ships it all-in for my entire stack. I decided to fold, leaving myself just 15 big blinds. Should I be calling there?
Calen McNeil Answer:
I think in that spot when you raise your committing yourself to the hand. You have two low cards and a big suited ace. That is good enough to go with when you’re short stacked and under 20bb. In the future, perhaps limp the hijack or make it 480. That makes folding more of an option. In this spot folding shouldn’t be an option with that hand and when you make it 3x. If you had only one low card, in this case a 3 and, say a 9 instead of a 6, you might open fold. If you had a 3 and a 10 I would go with it. The 3 and the 6 definitely make it a raise ‘to get it in’ hand. If you had a 5 or a 4, or obviously a 2, to go with the three it’s the same thing. Raise to get it in.

Listener Reply: 
Thanks. I feel I’m playing too tight in certain spots. Especially when there is a caller behind and then an all-in, my gut tells me I’m always crushed there.

 

Calen McNeil:

When raising from steal spots (button) people can raise you all-in with any A2 hand or double suits and the like. Your hand plays well against a wide range of hands your opponent could be doing this with. You are crushed against ACES with a Deuce. That’s a pretty tight range to be crushed by in my opinion, especially in this spot. I like to raise smaller amounts which allows me not to get too pot committed.

 
Editor’s Note:
A day after submitting that question to Calen McNeil, our High Roller sent us a note saying he won his daily $5 NLO8 event for $96. Sweet.

Called McNeil’s bracelet in 2013 was one of 10 won by Canadians and another, Marc Etienne McLaughlin, finished 6th in the main event.
2015 World Champion Joseph McKeehan is a pretty good player. The North Wales, Pennsylvania, native took a lot of criticism on social media for ‘running good’ during the 2015 November Nine. But, since that main event final table McKeehan has already amassed close to $1.8 million in earnings. His run includes a win at the Fall Wynn Classic, a 2nd place finish at the PCA $100k High Roller event for $1.2 million and a 4th at the Borgata Winter Open for $249,267. The guy can play.

Nevada Regulators give approval for off-strip casino

Nevada Regulators give approval for off-strip casino

Off-Strip Casino Finally Approved!
     The Nevada Gaming Commission and the Gaming Control Board have approved the public offering plan of the off-strip chain, Red Rock Resorts, the name the new company will operate under, after successful completion of its IPO. The news seems to have stirred some much needed attention in Casino Games that Station Casino has been aiming to pout in  place since the Securities and Exchange Commission approved the license.

     This new venture will be headed up by the major shareholders, in brothers Frank and Lorenzo Ferttita, which own 43 per cent and have occupied two of the five seats on the Red Rock Resorts executive board ever since the company went private in 2007. 

     There is some opposition. The local Union of Culinary has indicated its intention to oppose the move through its research director Maya Holmes, who’s cited that the bank has manipulated the interest rate, among her many reasons for campaigning against the IPO.  This, despite talk the union has a closer link to the Deutche Bank, which is believed to be the main funder of the company.

     Despite all the issues, the Station has assured regulators that is has no undue influence and the company is in good financial standing. And, the regulator have verified the claims. The massive $460 million entertainment complex acquisition went ahead as it was approved by regulators.

Hockey in Vegas?
“I just don’t see it not happening. We have a solid owner, an arena and we sold 13,000 season tickets. Vegas has 2.2 million people. It’s a sports town. We’ve been starving for a professional franchise of any kind for many years.”
– Daniel Negreanu, on Las Vegas getting an NHL team.

Poker Quotes

“The night before I left Las Vegas I walked out in the desert to look at the moon. There was a jeweled city on the horizon, spires rising in the night, but the jewels were diadems of electric and the spires were the neon of signs ten stories high.” 
 Norman Mailer

“In Vegas, I got into a long argument with the man at the roulette wheel over what I considered to be an odd number.”
– Steven Wright

“In Vegas, everybody’s gotta watch everybody else. Since the players are looking to beat the casino, the dealers are watching the players. The box men are watching the dealers. The floor men are watching the box men. The pit bosses are watching the floor men. The shift bosses are watching the pit bosses. The casino manager is watching the shift bosses. I’m watching the casino manager. And the eye-in-the-sky is watching us all.”

Slot Machine History & Betting Tips

Slot Machine History

     Since their invention in 1899 by Charles Fey, slot machines have been a source of excitement and entertainment for gamblers worldwide. They come in all shapes and forms and occupy most of the space at brick and mortar casinos. The bells and whistles are highly attractive and a proven source of fun for patrons of all kinds.
     In 1964, the slot machine industry was changed forever when electronic processors were added to the mix, a function to determine the outcome of games. This made machines more secure and, because it allowed the reels to stop reliably where they were supposed to, it also meant operators could offer larger prizes and jackpots.
     The next logical step unfolded in the mid 1970’s when Walt Freely introduced the first video-based slot machine called the “Fortune Coin,” which consisted only of the computer unit, the coin hopper and a TV screen. Things were simplified greatly, but despite the benefits for the casinos and better odds, highly controlled payout’s and jackpots, players were at first slow to trust the new technology. Then, video poker came along and, although the two games have few similarities, when players realized video poker games were fair the public perception slowly started to change with respect to video slot games as well. From there things exploded as the three-reeled machine grew to five, seven and nine reel games, massive symbol variations, pay lines, bet sizes, side games and jackpot amounts. Slot machines were added to the roster of online casino offerings. Click here to visit Netbet.  Think about it – 100 years of research has been crafted into each and every slot machine you’ll play at either a brick and mortar casino or online casino.

Tips for Slot Machine Play
     
     Be sure to check and read any information relating to your online casino or individual slot machine you’d like to play. Look for things like payout information, percentages, and if you can’t afford the maximum bet on any one machine switch to one with fewer reels or lower denominations to ensure yourself in the mix for jackpots.
     Be sure to set your limits with the ultimate goal of managing your bankroll in a bid to keep play entertaining, exciting and affordable. Think about it like an evening of fun and always consider playing with a set, comfortable amount.
     When you play consider which machines offer the highest progressive jackpots, a signal they haven’t been ‘hit’ in a while.  Look for machines and online casinos that offer the best bonuses and highest player rewards. Also, consider playing machines that offer higher prizes than one that pays out more often but also pays out less.
     Most importantly, if your machine is hot and hitting stay there until the luck turns. Sometimes swapping machines and games can pay-off. And, always remember slot machine pay-out’s are still random. Sometimes it’s just not your night. Take a break and you’ll have better luck next time.

 

Did you know?
In 1899, Charles Fey produced the first ever slot machine, one resembling the machines we know today. It was called “The Liberty Bell” and featured three reels with various symbols, the major one being a cracked Liberty Bell. It had a coin acceptor, a payout table and a large handle on the side. Fey placed it in a San Francisco saloon to see how the public would react and it became such a hit he quit his job to focus on this new technology. He monopolized the market and became very successful.

Mike Watson Wins PCA, Super High Roller Bowl & Gambling Fun Facts

Hey High Rollers, hope all is well. NFL Play-off weekend…some crazy games so far. Did you see Green Bay v Arizona…wow, what an ending. Are you betting? If so click the banners on this page (along right side) and bet with us at Bet Online…great odds, great action, great fun. Good luck.

Sir Watts Strikes Again

We star with Canadian poker sensation Mike Watson. Can this guy play or what? He always seems to be in the mix, usually at High Roller events, and this time at the very prestigious PCA 2016 main event. ‘Sir Watts’ topped  a stacked field of 928 players to take down his 1st EPT title and $728,325. The 31 year old now has more than $9 million in lifetime earnings and boy would we love to have him on the show. What do you say Mike?

“It means a lot to win a main event with a big field and especially the PCA being one of the flagship events of the EPT, and really a premiere event in the whole poker calendar. It has special meaning to me that Steve Paul-Ambrose won it ten years ago. He was a mentor to me and that makes it extra sweet.”

Anthony Gregg finished 2nd.

Special mention to Marty McCormick of Scotland, who qualified for the PCA thru a $27 satellite on PokerStars, finished 13th or smooth g for 50k. Well done sir…and thanks for the drunken entertainment on twitch poker. We’d love to have you on  the show as well Marty.

Super High Roller Bowl

Poker Central, the world’s first 24/7 poker TV network, has announced plans for its second SHB, this time a $300k buy-in with a 49 seat cap. 

“There are few poker events that can change the landscape of the game overnight — the Super High Roller Bowl is one of them. The 2016 Super High Roller Bowl will be even more exciting than last year’s!”

  • Clint Stintcomb

By the way, Brian Rast defeated Scott Seiver last year to claim the whopping $7.5 million first prize.

Did you know? 

Writer Damon Runyon allegedly based the character Sky Masterson, the gambler-hero of The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown (on which the musical Guys and Dolls is based), on legendary gambler Titanic Thompson, who is thought to have taught all of his pro-bet, hustling tricks to Amarillo Slim.

Action Man: One of Titanic Thompson’s partners in “the hustling game” included pool player Mnnesota Fats, who considered Titanic a genius, “the greatest action man of all time”.

Pay Cut?
In an era when top pro golfers were lucky to earn $30,000 a year, Thomas (who, after a misprint in a New York newspaper, let people think his name was Thompson) could make that much in a week hustling rich country club hackers. He was once asked if he would ever turn pro? He replied, “I could not afford the cut in pay”.

A Putt for his Life?
Once, during a discussion about golf, Doyle Brunson said that if he had to pick one guy to make a 10-foot putt for his life it would be Puggy Pearson. Not Nicklaus, nor Palmer, nor Watson. Puggy Pearson!
“He’s the greatest pressure putter I’ve ever seen,” Brunson said.

Hey High Rollers, Conor McGregor comes up big at UFC 194, a stunning one-punch knock-out of Jose Aldo. Wow! He is the UFC’s money man now as the age pulled in a whopping $10.1 million. Irish eyes are smiling.

This week, we profile Doyle Brunson, two-time world champion and 10-time WSOP bracelet winner. He is a member of the poker Hall of Fame and the author of Poker’s Bible Super System (1 and 2). He won both his world championships with the starting hand 10, deuce, which has forever become known as ‘The Brunson.’

What was the original name of the book Super System? Answer HERE

The sections of the book dedicated to strategy were divided as follows:

  • Draw poker written by Mike Caro. Among other things, Caro writes in detail about poker tells, how to gain information about an opponent’s hand based on how they act. He is regarded as an expert on poker psychology and behavior and would later go on to write his own seminal book on tells. He is also known as the ‘Mad Genius of Poker.’
  • Seven-card stud written by Chip Reese.
  • Lowball written by Joey Hawthorne and Doyle Brunson.

Strip Poker Anyone?
Strip poker is a party game, a variation of traditional poker, where players remove clothing when they lose. Any form of poker can be adapted to the strip form, but it is usually played with simple variants like 5-Card Draw or Texas Hold’em. Played by mixed groups in social situations to generate an atmosphere of fun, strip poker can heighten the sexual atmosphere. Like other adult party games, activities besides removing clothing and playing cards might be involved, like Truth or Dare.

History
It’s been suggested that strip poker originated in New Orleans in the 19th century, around the same time as original poker. It was played in brothels. The term ‘Strip Poker’ has only been confirmed since 1916. What began as a pranl among boys, the current co-ed version was called”mixed strip poker” in England to differentiate it from the all-male, non-sexual variety.

Did you know?  
After winning his bracelet in 2010, Canadian Pascal LeFrancois posed for the winner’s photo topless. It was the result of a dare from friends and he kept his word and removed his shirt for the bracelet photo, what had to be a WSOP first!
A Woman’s Game?
In 1941, the Young Women’s Republican Club of Milford, CT held a night like no other; they indulged in traditionally male pastimes like cigar smoking, poker playing, and wrestling. The night confused the majority of Milford’s male population but made quite a splash none-the-less.

WSOP Main Event Final Table – Tonight! Betting Odds.

Hey High Rollers, biggest night in poker as the November Nine resumes, fans will be watching with bated breath, one of the biggest spectacles and richest prizes in sport. Is poker a sport? We’ll save that for another day, but it is the World Series Of Poker final table, nine players vying for the world championship – and the money doesn’t lie, a whopping $7.7 million to the winner.

Nine players left for the world championship and $7.7 million

Nine players left for the world championship and $7.7 million

These nine have outlasted more than 6400 others, each have already been paid ninth place money, more than a million dollars. The cards fly in just a few hours, 8pm at the Penn and Teller theatre at the RIO in Las Vegas. And yes, you can wager on it! Chip leader Joseph McKeehan is the overwhelming 7-5 favourite, massive chip lead with  more than 63 million to play with. His chip count, more than double that of 2nd place Zvi Stern, from isreal, who’s listed at 7-2. McKeehen, by the way, a native of North Wales, Pa, is a two-time WSOP circuit winner, he almost captured a bracelet last year finishing runner-up in the inaugural Monster Stack event. Tidbit: McKeehan won the world Risk championship in 2010. Third in chips, is San Fransisco’s Neil Blumenfield, 61, who has 22 million chips and is pegged at 6-to-1. Same odds for the oldest player left, 72 year old Belgian Pierre Neuville and what a story that would be. Neuville will unbag 21 million chips in 4th Place. And then there’s Max Steinberg, a little more than 20 million, listed at 7-to-1, and this is our betting favourite. Great story too; he won his $10,000 seat into the main event through an NBA satellite on DraftKings. Yes, this guy used to play poker for a living, he owns a WSOP bracelet already, and what a parlay! He tturned that $27 satellite, into a $10,000 entry fee, now has a $1 million and a chance at the whole enchilada. This guy’s good, he’s underrated and you know he’s riding high, so watch out – Max J Steinberg at 7-to-1…that’s where our money’s going. The remaining 4 players, all between the tender ages of 23 and 25, are long shots. Young gun’s Thomas Cannuli and Joshua Beckley, both from New Jersey, and both listed at (12/1).  Brooklyn’s Patrick Chan and Italy’s Federico Butteroni are (25/1) dogs. Chan and Butteroni have less than 1/10 the amount of chips as McKeehen, the leader. Watch for it folks, live ESPN tonight, when they’ll play down from 9 players to 4, then tomorrow November 9th, from four players down to 2, and poker’s world champ will be crowned Tuesday November 10th.

Video Slots & Free Spins – How Online Casinos Attract Your Business and What to Look Out For?

Where do you play?

Where do you play?

Video Slot Machine Games with Free Spins

Online casinos want your business, they fall over themselves to attract your custom and use various headlines to attract your trade. Invariably that headline involves the term ‘cash bonus’ but the truth is its little known cousin, ‘free spins’, is actually where the best value lay for real money players. Normally free sportsbook bets do not return their stakes, if and when you back a winner, but play online slot games offering free spins with no deposit and what you win is yours.

There are two routes to free-spins, maybe three if you include the video slots with no deposit required but, for the big bucks, enter a Guts casino promo code and take free spins as part of your welcome package which can see you win real money on casino slot games.  No matter how you slice it, spins cost money and so free spins are as good as cash in your pocket. Free spins are a great way to accustom yourself with the slots, and their features, your chosen online casino has to offer. 


Alternatively you can simply play casino slot machine games online which offer free spins as part of their winning pay-lines.  I repeat: Spins cost money and so free spins are as good as cash in your account. 
But what is best to play, a video slot which offers cash prizes only or a mix of free ‘bonus spins’ and cash prizes? Is it simply a matter of how much you like playing and what your ultimate goal is?  Winning free spins obviously gives you more play and more play means more chances of winning cash prizes, right? Not necessarily, let us not forget the percentage cash return to players is clearly advertised and it is an unchangeable the amount.  

Therein there appears to be no obvious advantage in receiving free spins as the amount of money ultimately returned to winning players is no greater (or less) than it normally would be. This explains why ‘free spins’ is a bonus feature and not a cash prize and treat as such by the slot.  In short playing slots which offers free spins do not ultimately give you a better chance of winning but they do give you more play and most people play online slots because of the fun and entertainment they provide.

Something for free?  Spin away!

Yes, we are all trying to win money, but we tend to take the slot machine route ahead of traditional casino games, such as Blackjack and Roulette, because we find them more fun and entertaining.

Online Poker in The USA – Where are you playing?

Online Poker in the United States
Where are you Playing?

If you live in the United States, where with unregulated offshore sites and an unsure market, playing online poker can be a bit gloomy these days. Let’s take a look at some of the guidelines you should be watching out for on how and where to play online.

In a Regulated Market, Play at Legalize Sites

There are only three states in the USA where the operation of online poker sites is legal and licensed; New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada. Soon Delaware and Nevada will be introducing a players’ pool – which would regulate traffic in both states. Playing Poker at these sites is completely safe. While in Washington State – where playing poker is illegal, it is considered as crime. If you are living there, you shouldn’t be playing poker online. Well, for the other 46 states in the union, be sure to go through these points.

Know the Ambiance

One should always try to find out correct ambience of the state in which you are living. While playing online poker in United States, you will come across some legal barriers because of two things 1) the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 and 2) ‘Black Friday,’ the day in 2011. As a result, American Players were stopped from playing on many online sites.

Be sure to stay involved, by going through the news and reviews about the site before playing and find out about the repute and character of the online poker site.


Play at Sites Around for a Prolonged Time

If you want to play safe, it is always better to play at leading poker site for USA with a solid, reputable history. If the site has been around for a long time, it’s a better place to play and feel secure you’re your money.


Safety of Funds Should be Kept at Priority – Play at those Sites

Play with sites that go an extra mile to make you feel safe and secure about your money. The priority should be safety of funds because there are some sites which do not deal in security of players funds. Players should think carefully before playing at those sites. Government focus is on the sites which are not licensed to operate in the United States. Be sure to choose a site that goes that extra length in providing player safety.


Maintain Balance by Managing Balances

Play at sites licensed to carry their operations in the United States, and that means sites ready to serve American players.

Maintain and manage your balances – Always keep your balance light and deposit only the amount you want to keep for playing. Do not deposit large amounts on untrustworthy sites.

Cash out on a regular basis – Don’t let your money sit there for a long time. Find out the average time for cash outs for online poker sites .Checkout the timeframes provided by those online poker sites. The quicker the cash out, the better the site is. It is always a good idea to keep your balances low thus opt for playing safe.
