If you ask players on the tournament circuit who they think are the best poker players in the world, T. J. Cloutier’s name always comes up. Not because he’s won the Big One. He hasn’t … yet. And not because he’s made the most money at the World Series of Poker. He hasn’t … although he was the first player to make more than $1 million at it without winning the main event. No, his name is always mentioned because his peers highly respect and fear him as an opponent. “T. J. is the number one no-limit poker player in the world,” said Mansour Matloubi, the 1990 WSOP champion. WSOP tournament coordinator Jack McClelland concurs: “T. J. is one of the very best all-around players on the tournament trail today.”
Cloutier won two gold bracelets at the 1994 WSOP, one for pot-limit hold’em and the other for Omaha high-low. He also has garnered a WSOP trophy in limit Omaha, and placed second to his long-time friend, Bill Smith, in the 1985 championship match. Altogether, Cloutier has won 43 titles in major tournaments, including the $10,000 no-limit hold’em championship at the Diamond Jim Brady three years in a row. But as …

I recommend Nick Mordin’s, Winning Without Thinking: A Guide to Horse Race Betting Systems (Aesculus Press, UK). I have known Nick since he wrote an article about the Dr Z “place and show system” for the British race fancier. Nick has an extraordinary eye for thoroughbred condition and is a great student of European and North American racing. His background includes long stays in England, South Africa, and the Saratoga and Belmont areas. He presents a computerized approach to betting that exploits odds mistakes, as in the Dr Z systems, Roman’s work on dosage for the Kentucky Derby and other races, Kelly and fractional Kelly betting systems, and his own systems based on behavioral finance biases.
In plain English Nick discusses systems with positive UFABET expectation after transaction costs. Technical material is reprinted at the back of the book including technical papers underlining the theory. These include Roman’s 1981 Daily Racing Form article on the dosage system with an updated list of Chefs de Race, the Kelly 1956, a 1999 article by MacLean and myself on growth versus security tradeoffs through factional Kelly strategies, and the 1986 Bolton-Chapman paper that was published in Management Science, pioneering the Hong Kong factor …
Have you ever done something in a poker game, or for that matter in your everyday life, that you had mixed emotions about? Something that you felt was correct at the time but was bothering you just the same? I’m not talking about the old definition of mixed emotions which is, “Watching your mother-in-law driving over a cliff in your new Mercedes.” I am talking about an incident that had you questioning your honesty, and has you in a moral dilemma. You might ask yourself how you would have handled this situation.
Something happened last Friday night that is bothering me. This has never happened to me before, although I’ve seen others do it intentionally, and I’ve been on the receiving end of it before. Let me explain:
A 20/40 hold’em game, a wild, gamble-it-up-style game. Several people are in the pot, I’m holdingJ8s and flop a flush and a straight draw. It’s checked around on the flop, an ace hits on the turn. It’s checked around to me, and I bet hoping everyone will just fold and I can win it right there. There is one caller, a 9 hits the river, and he checks, I bet, the …
The EPT Final in Monte Carlo recently was the crowning tournament in the initial season of the European Poker Tour. The week was awesome. It was a celebration of European poker, and everyone felt it. This was what European poker can be, and it was the spirit in which European poker can exist. It was in a beautiful location, with the focus on poker. There was camaraderie at the bar, lovely food, high ceilings, and high-quality poker. The week kicked off with a welcome party that seemed more like a gathering of friends. European poker players know one another, and they like to hang out. They like to crowd up to the bar and talk about poker, and then get down to business when the tournament begins. The English, Irish, Swedes, Dutch, Spanish, Austrians, Germans, French, Danes, Finns, and the Russians were all there. And there wasn’t a cross word spoken all week.

What makes the European Poker Tour great? Diversity, for one. Even though Pokerstars was the unabashed sponsor, there was plenty of room for other names, mainly because EPT Director John Duthie has insisted on diverse logos being allowed. And …
G2E – It’s not the same world as it was just two weeks ago. Uncertainty rules the Las Vegas Strip and many other regions of the gaming industry. During the inaugural Global Gaming Expo (G2E), attendees of the conference will hear about the challenges of the near term and the opportunities of the future in one comprehensive program.
G2E, organized by the American Gaming Association (AGA) in conjunction with Reed Exhibition Companies, will be held Oct. 1-3, 2001, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, its host venue through 2020.
“We designed the program at G2E to be very current and state-of-the-art, and we are very pleased to be able to address these important issues in a very up-to-date context,” said Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr., president and CEO of the AGA. “Because G2E is the only show by the industry and for the industry, we are able to respond to changes very quickly.
With more than 100 sessions and nearly 500 expert speakers, G2E will cover the industry like no other conference, past or present. Just some of the cutting-edge sessions and speakers include:
- “The Washington Way: Federal Proposals on Gaming,” moderated by former Senator Richard Bryan, with panelists that
“We will listen, we will learn and then we will bring to Melbourne whatever is needed.”
They are words that will make every other club sit up and take notice. Talk about a game changer!
With the announcement yesterday that Manchester City, which also now own the new New York City FC franchise in the MLS, has purchased an 80% stake in the struggling Melbourne Heart, the club has literally gone from rags to riches.
People were lining up to write their obituaries for a club that has failed to find success on the field, and failed to attract fans off it. And with just one win in their last 20 Agen Domino99 games many were questioning “where to?” for Melbourne Heart? It was a legitimate question.
They answered that question in emphatic fashion. Now it’s not a matter of “where to?” but a question of “how big?” can the club become? With the money of Sheikh Mansour behind them the sky is the limit.

bet365George was spot on with his prediction that the Man United v Chelsea game would finish in a 1-1 draw. He also predicted Liverpool being held by Hull at Anfield and 3 other results.

The big Judi Online game is at the Etihad Stadium where a Manchester City side without a win in three take on Manchester United, who lost both of the Manchester derbies last season.

Soccer – Ancelotti brushes off Bale fitness fears
Carlo Ancelotti has denied he is having to manage a Gareth Bale injury which prevents the Wales international from playing three games in …
I absolutely despise Valentines Day. Conformity demands that I waste good money on a pointless gift and a meaningless card, even though the wife has spent the last 364 days of the year criticising me for being lazy. I’d happily dump her; but it’s a lot of effort to find someone new.
Paul McCartney has taken the brave step of officially ending his ill-fated relationship. For me, he’s definitely made the correct decision, even if it does cost him an arm and a leg.
While Paul and I understand that love is a Qiu Qiu Online complete fallacy, there are still a minority who believe in the romance of the FA Cup. The reality is that the minnows just make up the numbers until the trophy is lifted by one of the big 4, or Liverpool.
Rafa Benitez has pointed the finger at the Yanks for their relegation from the elite. You can blame the Americans for many things: Middle East instability, nuclear war, terrorism, global warming, 9/11 and fat children, but they didn’t rest Torres against Birmingham. I hope Rafa takes the FA Cup seriously, as I’m on the Reds at 1/5 against Barnsley.…
