Peter Eastgate Takes Down 2008 hk prize Main Event

 

After waiting nearly four months to reconvene the final table of the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event, everyone was excited to get the action going.  None could have been more excited than the 22-year-old Peter Eastgate, who broke Phil Hellmuth’s record and is now the youngest main event champion to ever grace the hk prize .  Eastgate walked away with not only the record-holding title, but the WSOP gold bracelet and $9,152,416 in total winnings!

Think back to July and recall that the $10K NL Hold’em tournament began with 6,844 players.  Then it all came down to the infamous November Nine: Ivan Demidov, Peter Eastgate, Kelly Kim, Craig Marquis, Scott Montgomery, Dennis Phillips, David “Chino” Rheem, Ylon Schwartz, and Darus Suharto.

Dennis Phillips, the truck salesman from St. Louis, started the table as chip leader and was able to stick around long enough to see some of the first few eliminations.

First to go was Craig Marqui.  With pocket sevens, Marqui pushed his stack all-in, only to be called by Scott Montgomery who held A-Q.  Flopping a set, Marqui thought his win was in the bag.  That is until Montgomery got runner-runner and sent Marqui home with his straight.

Next to go to the rail was Kelly Kim.  Starting as short stack, Kim wasn’t expected to last very long.  Trying to seize the right opportunity to double up, Kim’s stack became extremely low.  Finally, a break must have come because Kim moved all-in.  Ivan Demidov, Ylon Schwartz, and Darus Suharto all called to see the action.  Lady Luck didn’t play a role in choosing board cards for Kim though.  Defeated, Kim mucked and walked away in eighth place.

David Rheem was next on the list, when his A-K met up against Darus Suharto’s A-Q.  Rheem was devastated, …

Huge congratulations to alienface, who absolutely dominated the monthly leaderboard for June. Out of the 30 days in June, he was in 1st place for 22 of those days – that is amazing! When he took 1st place back on June 14th, that was it; he kept his spot for the rest of the month. I know that last week and the week before I mentioned he had a huge lead, and I also mentioned that it was uncommon for a player to have such a …

Bodog- result hk Leaderboards – Current Leaders May 16th

 

 

When we looked at the weekly Bodog leaderboard last Friday,  result hk WillyNilly had a narrow lead over ParliGod of only 32 points. Here were the top three when the week was over:

 

  1. fitzfitz – 1589 pts
  2. RezinLife – 1577 pts
  3. Dartanian – 1566 pts

 

ParliGod actually passed WillyNilly the day after I wrote last week’s article, but he couldn’t keep the top spot for long either. fitzfitz took the top spot from ParliGod and he was the guy on top when the week was over. Congratulations to fitzfitz for winning the chance to play a Bodog pro heads-up for $1,000.

 

Moving on to this week, here is the current weekly top ten:

 

  1. StraightNutz – 1275 pts
  2. The Maven – 1181 pts
  3. andyvanslyke – 1178 pts
  4. whatever877 – 1007 pts
  5. PhillyGG – 950 pts
  6. Killa_Tyven – 904 pts
  7. dunkin dutchman – 886 pts
  8. fitzfitz – 836 pts
  9. ilovekaren – 829 pts
  10. dukedaddie – 828 pts

 

StraightNutz is in the lead now, but we all know that a 100 point lead isn’t very safe, particularly with a few days left in the week still. There’s the familiar name of andyvanslyke in third place – he’s been in the top ten of Bodog’s tournament leaderboards very often lately. In fact, over the last 30 days, his name has shown up in the top ten of the weekly board 13 times and the monthly board 22 times. Impressive! fitzfitz is also in the top ten again, sitting in 8th place. Can he make a run for first and win the weekly race two weeks in a row? He’s behind by over 400 points right now so it may seem unlikely, but last week he overcame a 300 point deficit to win first place. Maybe 400 points …

LEGAL HASSLE INCOMING

 

 

New banning bill in Illinois

 

More State law aimed at hamstringing Internet gambling is on the radar at present, this time from Illinois.

 

State Rep. Elizabeth Coulson is leading the charge with a Leach look-alike bill that attempts to eliminate Internet gambling by prohibiting banks and credit card companies from processing wire transfers to Internet casinos. If a bank knowingly processed such transactions, it would be fined $1,000 per offense.

 

And any credit card debts from Internet gambling transactions would be null and void, meaning the financial institutions wouldn’t have to pay the online casinos, and in turn, the bettor would not have to pay the financial institution.

 

“Basically, we would say that credit card companies don’t have to pay the Internet debt. So then, guess what, the gambling people aren’t going to want to take cards from Illinois, and then you eliminate the problem,” Coulson says.

 

The bill is currently awaiting a hearing in the Slot Gacor gaming committee, whose chairman, Rep. Lou Lang said more testimony and information about Internet gambling would be needed before the committee could act. Coulson attempted a similar bill last session, and it passed the House 111-0 but was then stalled in the Senate rules committee.

As a fully qualified translator and 20 years’ experience under my belt working freelance in the UK I now tend to concentrate on translating medical texts (questionnaires, patient information leaflets, SOPs) from English into my mother tongue German. But I also love stylistically demanding texts and those that give you the freedom to move away ever so slightly from the source text. Tourist brochures and marketing texts are a great favourite of mine. When I am not working I love spending time with my family, travelling and playing badminton and going to the gym to keep a healthy work/life balance.

Meningkatkan Peluang Layanan Pelanggan Anda

Apa pun yang Anda lakukan, akan ada beberapa kasino di mana Anda tidak akan menerima layanan pelanggan yang layak Anda dapatkan. Tetapi sering kali, apa yang Anda lakukan dapat memengaruhi cara Anda diperlakukan. Saat meneliti artikel ini, saya menghabiskan beberapa waktu melalui korespondensi pelanggan saya untuk melihat keadaan apa yang menyebabkan penundaan atau masalah. Saya datang dengan beberapa saran yang akan membuat hidup kami berdua sedikit lebih mudah.

Apa yang dapat Anda, pelanggan, lakukan untuk meningkatkan peluang Anda mendapatkan layanan pelanggan yang lebih baik?

 

Mungkin mengejutkan, saya sarankan mencoba membatasi semua korespondensi Anda ke email, dan menggunakan telepon sebagai upaya terakhir. Mengapa? Anda tidak hanya memiliki catatan korespondensi Anda, tetapi kasino juga memilikinya. Ini penting ketika berpindah dari satu Perwakilan Layanan Pelanggan ke Perwakilan Layanan Pelanggan lainnya. Selain itu, dalam banyak kasus, Anda juga akan memiliki nama orang yang membantu Anda, yang memiliki banyak manfaat. Misalnya, kecuali untuk situasi darurat, Anda dapat mengarahkan semua email Anda ke orang itu, dan, jika Anda tidak senang dengan cara Anda diperlakukan, Anda dapat memberi tahu penyelia atau manajer nama orang ini.

 

Sangatlah penting untuk selalu mencantumkan Togel hari ini nama lengkap dan nomor rekening pada semua korespondensi Anda. Anda akan terkejut dengan jumlah email yang diterima staf saya di mana pelanggan belum mengidentifikasi diri mereka sendiri. Itu mengingatkan saya pada iklan di TV beberapa bulan lalu yang menunjukkan seorang wanita muda yang masuk ke toko dan berkata, “Hei, Anda ingat saya? Saya membeli CD di sini beberapa bulan yang lalu.” Mengirim email tanpa mengidentifikasi siapa Anda, atau bahkan hanya menggunakan nama depan Anda, cukup banyak melakukan hal yang sama. Bayangkan berapa banyak pelanggan bernama ‘John’ di luar sana.

 

Bahkan memasukkan nama belakang Anda saja tidak cukup, karena tidak hanya ada banyak nama John di database, ada juga banyak nama John …

Gas Station Attendant Wins Big IDN Poker at King Neptune’s

 

“Those pharaohs are some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen!” says King Neptune’s (www.kingneptunescasino.com) latest progressive jackpot winner, Stephany, describing the winning screen after hitting a $144 765 Treasure Nile progressive jackpot this week.

 

Stephany, a gas station attendant from Colorado has been a regular player at the casino since June last year. And the happy surprises are not yet over, because the casino is taking her on a luxury, all expenses paid Mystery Weekend for two as an added bonus to show appreciation for her support.

 

On a date of her choosing, Stephany and her son will jet away to a fabulous mystery location that has been carefully selected by King Neptune’s. They will then spend a long weekend being thoroughly spoiled.

 

“During this holiday, Stephany and her son will be treated to the very best – the classiest hotel, the finest restaurants and the most exciting entertainment,” Trident E-Group spokesperson Scott Gaines said. “Every minute of the weekend will be carefully planned to ensure that she has the trip of a lifetime.”

 

Gaines said that the Mystery Weekend is now part of an additional package that King Neptune’s owners, Trident E-Group Casinos have pledged to any player who wins a progressive jackpot of $100,000 or more.

 

The big win came just after 6am Mountain Time on January 28. Stephany had been playing IDN Poker for approximately 30 minutes and had wagered a little over $100 “…just wishing and praying for a nice win”. Suddenly the screen went blue and the message ‘You have won the Progressive Jackpot’ appeared. Stunned, she sat looking at the screen first in shock, then confusion and finally calm…. but was “deliriously happy”.

 

Stephany says she’s not yet sure of how she will spend …

Too soon to determine smoke ban’s revenue impact

HELENA – Since Helena voters approved the clean indoor air ordinance in June, word on the street has been that business in bars and casinos has suffered greatly. Business was down as much as 60 percent at some casinos, hospitality industry officials told the IR last month.

The state recently released the first tax-collection statistics that cover some of the time the ordinance has been in effect. The smoking ordinance was in effect for only one of the three months included in the most recent figures, which cover April through June of this year. However, other cities enacting bans have shown that any economic impact is greatest immediately after the ordinance passes.

One expert says it’s impossible to draw any conclusions at all for the numbers through June.

“It’s just too early to tell,” said Paul Polzin, director of the Bureau of Business and Economic Research at the University of Montana. “You need at least one full quarter to know. Maybe they had two heavy months in April and May. There simply isn’t enough data yet.”

Steve Morris, a local restaurateur and president of the Montana Tavern Association, was out of town Tuesday and unavailable for comment.

There are, perhaps not surprisingly, several ways to read the early numbers, but none of them indicate the heavy decreases claimed by local UFABet casino owners. Again, the most recent numbers available include only one month of the ordinance; a clearer picture won’t emerge until October, when the first quarter of fiscal year 2003 (July through September) becomes available.

In Helena, the fourth quarter of this fiscal year (April through June) showed a 6.4 percent increase in gambling taxes collected over the same quarter of 2001. That’s slightly below the 7.3 percent jump from the fourth quarter of 2000 to the fourth quarter …
