The Hammer Challenge!

Grubby has his now infamous Hammer Challenge open to all bloggers. The Fat Guy added a copy of Positively Fifth Street in addition to the progessive jackpot. Kudos to Grubby for making life at the table a little more interesting.

I wonder if I could pull off the Hammer at Foxwoods! I would love to jump up and shout, “I got da Ham-mah!” (Sorry for the poor Boston accent… I couldn’t resist!) Of course 2-7o is regularly played at the $2-4 games at Foxwoods. I have plenty of bad beats to bitch about… I’ll be happy to ask the Indian Tribal Gaming commission to forward their security tapes to Grubby for verification.

Also, Grubby is back from Vegas. Check out his trip reports… he played in the same tournament that Derek and I played in at the Luxor. Grubby made the final table there in addition to finishing in the money at the Orleans. Good job, Grubby!

Thanks to London Froggy for blogging a few nice words about me on his site, regarding: Celebrity Poker Letdown. He got a huge kick out of my “wish list” for the next version of Celebrity Poker Letdown.

Here’s what …


Materiality Matters: Huntington Bancshares


Good piece on “materiality” – the decision issue of when something is important enough to make financial statements misleading – in this morning’s Wall Street Journal “Tracking The Numbers” column. [As always, subscription required.]

I’ve mentioned materiality on a few occasions recently, and I suspect we will be hearing more in the coming months as a result of remedies of already-discovered control weaknesses – and if the SEC issues new discussion/guidance on materiality and error corrections, we could see a lot more wrangling over materiality.

Materiality figures into the private investment trust International case, as the Wall Street Journal reminds us. But there’s a far less notorious case that stretched materiality beyond the limits of reasonableness. It involved Huntington Bancshares, earnings managed by selective ignorance or manipulation of accounting principles, Wall Street expectations, poorly-designed management incentives – and Staff Accounting Bulletin 99, “Materiality.” Not as much of a splashy story as AIG; it lacks the colourful character of a Hank Greenberg – also, Huntington’s market cap is about 1/26th of AIG’s. Besides, this one’s unravelled over the last couple years and there’s been plenty of other competing stories. Nevertheless, this one’s got all the ingredients of a Harvard Business …


Your Guide in order to the Gradual Roll inside 8g88 (And So why it is very a Problem)



Though fun to play, Holdem poker is not always the most friendly video game out there. Thoughts often run with the particular tables, and items can easily get heated fairly instantly, it’s just the characteristics of the game. When it might be annoying on times, this is quite an element that draws in a lot of online players to poker over so many other options in existence.

Even though 1 of the main ambitions in poker is for you to throw your own personal opponent down balance together with force these individuals to make mistakes, particular limits should never be crossed. All these limits will be a part of the thing that is known as the “poker etiquette” a group of unwritten Holdem poker rules that the majority of people know and comply with.

The slower roll is owned by this party and is viewed as a new big no-no for nearly all online players. The basic process is that when it is a little something you wouldn’t such as somebody do to you, you shouldn’t do it for you to others.

What on earth is the Impede Roll in Online poker?

Though there isn’t …


International QQWIN99 News


It’s been awhile since we have done a flag-waving round up of poker news around the globe. Let’s take a look and see just how the various elected guardians of morality and fair play are treating our favorite game.

frenchflagFrance: Online-poker advertising in France will disappear, for now, after the inaction of a law calling for a minimum fine of €30,000 for any foreign-based online gambling within the country. This is, of course, a direction violation of EU trade guidelines but that has not slowed down the French anti-poker forces at all.

SwedishVlagSweden: They are going the “protect the public” route in Sweden. Again in violation of the EU open trade rules and in direct opposition to the well known Swedish rule of law that holds that people do not need to be protected from themselves. The underlying problem here is that Sweden has online poker but its a state-run monoply (Svenska Spel) and they want the revenue to flow exclusively to the government as long as they can hold off challenges from other EU states. Interesting that protection is not needed from the government gaming site but only from others.

China has built a framework called the Digital Currency Electronic Payment (DCEP) which would enable its national bank  (PBOC)  to issue a cryptocurrency commercial banks and payment networks like Alipay and WeChat Pay.

That is according to Jack Lee, Co-Founder & Executive Director of Chained Finance Ltd. (an automatic supply chain finance company based on Blockchain technology) who told CNBC:

“So, they already have all the system and the network ready. I think you will see it very soon, in the next maybe two to three months.”
