Alex and Jerry show back on sanghoki!


Alex raised it up and was reraised by Jerry.

Feeling left out Raymond comes over the top of sanghoki reraise and Alex gets out of the way to make it the Ray and Jerry show!

Jerry makes the call and we go to the flop with Raymonds A-Q up against pocket queens for Jerry.

An ace lands on the flop and Raymond leaps out in front!

Suddenly the player who looked like he was ready for a long nap or a holiday is up, is happy and is talking again.

The turn is blank and so is the river, and suddenly Raymond who was looking down and out has doubled up the chip leader.

I have a feeling that Jerry has now doubled up every other player at the table!

Raymond looking like he might be leaving soon…

Raymond Rahme raised and was reraised by Alex Kravchenko to the tune of 4 millon.

Raymond went into the tank, looking tired and frustrated, it looked like for sure he would push all in over the top, but in the end he laid down the hand and Alex took another pot.

There really has been very little action in the last 30-45 minutes, a few chips have moved about but there have been very few exciting hands.

Is Raymond Rahme tiring?

Raymond Rahme has slipped in the chip counts and is starting to look really tired.

Not only is he leaning on the rail more, but ever since he doubled up the short stack he has looked rattled.

Raymond is the oldest player at the table at 62 years young, and while in the early stages he was possibly the player with the most poise at the final table.

That has slipped from him for now and he is looking weary.…

How Prescription Medications Can Lead to DUI Offenses

Most people know that it is against the law to drive while under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs. However, those same people may put themselves and others at risk by driving while on prescription medication. If you are on medication, it’s important to find out whether it’s safe to drive while on it. If you are arrested for DUI while on prescription drugs, you should contact a DUI lawyer immediately for assistance.

Drowsiness and DUI

Many prescription medications can cause drowsiness. Some medications may even state that people should not drive while on the medication. Whether or not this is true, it’s important that you be careful about driving while drowsy.

If you get into an accident or drive erratically and are pulled over, you may be arrested for DUI if you are drowsy due to being on prescription medication. DUI law varies from state to state and it is important to know which laws apply to you before driving whilst taking prescription medications, for example in Virginia, being under the influence of prescription drugs while driving is illegal. If you tell a police officer that you are on prescription medication or the officer otherwise suspects that your ability to drive is impaired, you can be arrested for DUI.

Drinking While On Medication

Some prescription medications amplify the effects of alcohol. Drug interactions with alcohol can cause you to be more impaired than you ordinarily would be. Thus, if you normally can drink one or two beers and be okay to drive, you might still get a DUI if you drink that much while on medication. You may need to contact an attorney in your state.

Defenses Against DUI on Medication

It should be easier for your attorney to defend you against DUI if your DUI was based …

40th WSOP Schedule Released, $40K Buy-in Event Added, 4-Month Break Kept

Organizers have released the schedule for the 40th annual World Series of toto hk  (WSOP), which will start on Wednesday, May 27 with the first of 57 gold bracelet events, followed the next day with a special $40,000 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament to commemorate the WSOP’s 40th anniversary.  The famed Amazon Room at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas will once again will serve as the center of the poker universe this summer, using the same blueprint as last year.

The 40th annual WSOP will conclude with the $10,000 buy-in World Championship No-Limit Hold‘em Main Event which begins play Friday, July 3, 2009 and reaches its final table (nine players) on July 15, 2009, at which time play will be halted.  Final table play will be held from November 7-10, 2009.  The 4-month break, which was initiated last year to allow ESPN to televise the tournament without viewers knowing the winner, boosted ratings for the same day broadcast of the final table by 50 per cent last year, according to officials.


Among the highlights of the 2009 schedule:


  • 57 gold bracelet events over 50 days.
  • A “stimulus special” $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em tournament on the opening weekend, May 30-31, 2009, which is anticipated to draw the largest-ever live tournament field outside the Main Event and offer a prize pool approaching $5,000,000.
  • 10 “World Championship” $10,000 buy-in events (“World Championship” refers to tournaments with a buy-in of $10,000 in each of the various disciplines of poker).
  • The third annual $50,000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. tournament, with an enhanced gold bracelet and the Chip Reese Memorial Trophy awarded to the winner.
  • A one-time commemorative gold bracelet event, a $40,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em tournament to help mark the 40th annual WSOP on Thursday, May 28, 2009.
  • Seven open $1500

Winning Hands in Blackjack

When you play blackjack your final hand can only be one of these possibilities – a blackjack, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16 or less, or you could bust.

When you bust, you know you automatically lose and when you get a blackjack hand the worse you can do is tie and the best get paid a bonus of 1.5 times your bet. But what are your chances of wining when you stand on your 17 – 21? You would hope they are good but that’s not always the case.

Let’s take the example of standing on 17 in a six-deck game where the dealer stands on soft 17. Most players are happy to have a 17 and thankfully stand. However, you will lose more money then win when the dealer shows any face card but a 6. You will lose the most money when the dealer shows a 9 and the least when he shows a 4 or 5. It’s only when the dealer has a 6 showing that you stand a fighting chance of winning some money in the long run.

So what’s a player to do? Actually, there is nothing you can do. Hitting a hard 17 would result in even greater losses so the lesser of two evils is to stand. Now don’t get me wrong. Often times you will stand on 17 and win a hand but over time you will end up losing more then you win except against the dealer’s 6. Standing on 17 is definitely not utopia.

Because 17 is not a good hand this is the reason you should never stand on soft 17 (you should hit or double down). Also in a game where the dealer hits soft 17, a player faces an additional disadvantage.
