Too important for govt to decide alone

 

Legalising gambling dens required a full public hearing and a thorough study as the government could not make a decision without consulting the people, Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra has said.

 

The premier said gambling was a major issue needing a people’s mandate.

 

He acknowledged a previous study on the pros of legalising gambling and the government had been receptive to the findings.

 

Mr Thaksin said the “reality” could not be overlooked, given huge foreign exchange losses because neighbouring countries operating casinos freely drew many Thai gamblers.

 

Legions of gambling dens were also scattered nationwide breeding mafia culture and corruption.

 

Mr Thaksin said many countries had brought casinos into the open so they could regulate them.

 

But he stressed no words should be put in his mouth that he endorsed legalising gambling dens.

 

Although research had pointed to advantages, an in-depth study was in order and needed before a decision could be made on whether to have public hearings.

 

Mr Thaksin said Chulalongkorn University had done research from the outset but the latest findings were released many years ago. There was a need to expand on existing research or start afresh to keep up with changing circumstances.

 

The government had paid close attention to underground businesses _ and gambling dens were only one part of that.

 

The Finance Ministry and the Government Lottery Office were trying to attract people into supporting legal lotteries so fewer would play the illegal lottery system and risk intimidation by bookies.

 

Mr Thaksin said the government would be willing to push through projects beneficial to the country even if they were met with some resistance.

If Somebody Asked Me I’d Say…

  1. Not knowing what it takes to be a winner.

Being driven by unreality and false hopes. It takes 52.38% winners to break even. Seasoned pros understand that at least 50% of all pointspread decisions are decided by serendipity…a random stroke of good or bad fortune. Respect, even fear, the Luck Factor. Be satisfied with anything around 60% winners and be grateful for anything above it.

  1. Being undisciplined in managing your money.

Letting losses depress or immobilize you; impulsively forcing the action in an irrational way. You’re not going to be a winner with foolish money management. There’s no such thing as the law of averages in sports betting. Never bet more than twice your normal play no matter how promising a game may look. Trying to get even (e.g., on a Monday night) can be a curse. View the handicapping exercise as you would a 12-round fight. You’re not going to win every round; it’s the overall final decision that counts. Establish a steady pattern of play. Remember, if you play too fast, you can’t last. And if you play too slow, you gotta’ go. Moderation is the key. Just like in life itself.

  1. Lacking patience.

Failing to look for every edge, both in the pointspread dissection and the current up-to-date assessment of the teams. Shop for the best prices on each game. A half-point here and a point there is often the difference between a winning or losing season. Don’t play bad numbers. If you’re dealing with only one source, you’re going to be at a disadvantage. Don’t overreact to injury reports, especially those involving high-profile players. The pointspread will usually reflect the news by the time you hear it. And besides, good teams often compensate while the opposition may become overconfident.

Every time I tell someone I am headed to Vegas, someone always gives me $20 and says “Blow it on Megabucks—we’ll split the winnings.” And needless to say, I never hit anything, but the allure and excitement of possibly winning millions of dollars on a single spin of the reels is so mind-bending that people give you money to play on their behalf!

In my opinion, the most compelling evidence that self-proclaimed psychics cannot predict the future is that none of them are billionaires. I know with absolute certainty that if my predictions about what would happen one hour in the future were just 5% more accurate than random chance, I would have been able to retire to my own private island years ago. Predicting the future in this manner in a casino can make someone rich. Predicting the future in this manner in the world’s capital markets, … well, that’s just in another league. Many people have claimed to have an edge in the casino of world finance, and most of those have wound up broke. In The Predictors, Thomas Bass chronicles the story of a group of scientists who use their expertise in the field of nonlinear dynamics (chaos theory) to try to beat the biggest casino of all.

 

In a previous book, the entertaining but unfortunately out-of-print Eudaemonic Pi, Bass chronicled the story of how a group of UC Santa Cruz students developed equipment, strategies, and procedures that allowed them to beat the game of roulette, at least when their equipment was working. In that book, Bass mentions, almost parenthetically, that members of this group were doing some research in the field of nonlinear dynamics, more commonly called chaos theory. What he didn’t tell the readers is that this group of researchers performed some truly groundbreaking work that helped lead to fundamental breakthroughs in how scientists understand the natural world. In The Predictors, Bass chronicles the story of two members of this original group, Doyne Farmer and Norman Packard, as they try to use what they learned about predicting the behavior of chaotic systems to predict the movement of the financial markets.

This week, a long-overdue precedent was set when the operator of a sports gambling Web site was convicted in the first case of its kind to go to trial.

The New York jury found that Jay Cohen, 33, had broken the U.S. Interstate Wire Act of 1961 by accepting bets and wagers on sports events via the Internet and telephone.

Cohen, the president of World Sports Exchange in Antigua, was among 22 defendants charged in March 1998. In a statement, U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White said the San Francisco, California man was the first individual to stand trial in the United States for running such an offshore operation.

Cohen was the only one of the defendants to return to the U.S. to face the charges, arguing that he operates a perfectly legal and regulated ปั่นสล็อตเว็บไหนดี gambling site in Antigua. The jury disagreed, and found him guilty for accepting a bet from a resident of New York — a state where gambling is illegal.

Benjamin Brafman, Cohen’s attorney, claimed that the jury was biased by the judge’s explanation of the Interstate Wire Act.

“I believe that the legal instructions provided by the court gave the jury no choice but to find Mr. Cohen guilty,” Brafman said. “I do not believe that this verdict will survive appellate review and we have every intention of pursuing a vigorous appeal for Mr. Cohen.”

Faces a 19-Year Sentence

Cohen faces a maximum prison term of five years on one count of conspiracy to violate the Wire Wager Act and two years on each of seven other related charges. Sentencing will take place on May 23rd before U.S. District Judge Thomas Griesa.

Prosecutors alleged that people like Cohen have tried to skirt U.S. law by running their operations from jurisdictions that allow gambling, including Curacao, Panama, …

New betting kiosks that will allow sports bettors to place bets when the casino’s sports book is closed should be available for the upcoming football season.

Developed by Internet Sports International (ISI) in conjunction with American Wagering, the company that owns Leroy’s sports books, the kiosks allow bettors to place sports bets without having to transact at the sports book counter. Thus, players can make bets after hours, or in casino locations away from the sports book.

So far, about 15 sports books have installed the betting kiosks, according to William Stearns, ISI president.

“One location was so remote that the device will present the first opportunity for the locals there to participate in a hands-on sports book activity,” Stearns said. “The small casino and its patrons are very happy.”

The first sports betting kiosks were sent to field trial more than a year ago. They were set up to handle up to $1,650 in wagers per day per bettor, who has his photo taken at the time of placing his bet.

The bettor’s image is then stored in the machine’s situs judi poker database and used to “recognize” the player when he makes additional bets, thus ensuring he doesn’t exceed the $1,650 per day limit.

The machines, like ATM’s, accept cash through a bill acceptor. Through the kiosk’s touch screen or computer keypad, the player can search the menu for betting lines, point spreads or race entries. There are even glossaries that explain the myriad of sports and race bets.

Once a bet is selected, a ticket is printed for the player. Just like the ticket-in, ticket-out slot machines, the ticket, if it is a winner, can be inserted back into the kiosk in order to make additional bets, or it can be cashed at the casino cage or …

How the saga involving Jason Culina ends will take its natural course. But the fact an A-League side is holding its own in negotiations with the current PSV and Socceroos midfielder is being lauded as a milestone for the domestic game.

 

Culina is a first choice for national team coach Pim Verbeek and arguably plays at the highest standard of any of Australia’s overseas stars in Eindhoven after appearing for PSV in this year’s Champions League.

 

The 28-year-old son of former Sydney FC coach Branko is rarely injured and was one of the country’s outstanding players leading into the 2006 World Cup.

 

His form over the past 12 months for the national team hasn’t perhaps maintained that same level. But he has retained his position in Togel PSV’s midfield under coach Huub Stevens and has been offered extended terms to remain with the Dutch club when his current deal ends in June.

 

Reports suggest Croatian outfit Dinamo Zagreb are the other major European player in the hunt for Culina’s silky services. But it’s the ballsy ambition of expansion A-Leaguers Gold Coast United which has made the overseas heavyweights sit up and take notice.

 

United have reportedly offered Culina a three-year $3.6 million deal to become the club’s marquee acquisition with Gold Coast coach Miron Bleiberg believing the fledgling club have presented the most attractive all-round package.

 

“My understanding is that we are his top choice but if something comes up that interests him more, then I’ll accept it,” Bleiberg told the Gold Coast Bulletin.

 

“To date, the only Socceroos players who have come home have been just one step from retirement. With Jason you are looking at a player in his prime.

Ognenovski receives ACL 2010 MVP award from Junji Ogura

2010 was a year to remember for Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma. The team from just south of Seoul not only won the Asian Champions League but went on to finish third place at the FIFA Club World Cup after meeting European champions Inter Milan.

 

It was even better for Sasa Ognenovski, a Togel Online man looking forward to his third K-League season. The big Australian was the man handed the Asian trophy in Tokyo in November. He was also named the MVP for the entire tournament and then the awarded the prize as the 2010 Asian Player of the Year. It was a dream season. Even better, the 31 year-old made his debut for the Australian national team in November and went on to star in the Asian Cup in January when the Socceroos made the final before losing to Japan.

 

That is all history now. The new season has just kicked-off for Seongnam and the 15 other teams in the K-League. The question I put to him was: how do you follow a season that was almost as perfect as it could be?

 

“Well, it is impossible if only because we are not in the Asian Champions League,” Ognenovski said. “However, it gives us a chance to focus on domestic issues such as the K-league and the FA Cup and doing our best to win those.”

 

Not being in the Asian Champions League is a blow for the club. Seongnam’s exploits last season came at a cost at home and they failed to qualify for the 2011 version by finishing high enough in the K-League rankings. In the past, winners were given an automatic place in the tournament for the following year. That is no …

The Korean thanksgiving holiday is a time to spend with family and pay respects to ancestors that have passed away. What it is not, is a time to do any unnecessary travel. More than half the nation moves around the southern half of the peninsula to visit hometowns. The nightly television news programs all start by broadcasting the same pictures with relish. The first is of the full harvest moon, an image followed by shots of expressways that are equally bloated.

 

Mounting journey times between major cities are gravely but breathlessly relayed to those lucky enough to be sat in their own homes. The barometer is Seoul-Busan. It usually takes around five hours to drive from the capital to the south coast port but during ‘Chuseok’, that will only get you about halfway.

 

That was the point that the Asian Champions quarter-final between Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors and Urawa Reds was at on the last day of the harvest festivities with the second leg action due to take place in Korea.

 

Urawa fans at Jeonju World Cup Stadium

 

A week previously in Saitama, the Japanese champions had given the Asian champions a footballing lesson. If the two-goal lead that the Reds enjoyed for much of the game had been carried over the East Sea and into South Korea for the second leg, Urawa coach Holger Osieck would have been delighted though perhaps a little disappointed that the J-League leaders hadn’t managed more. As it was, Jeonbuk’s veteran defender Choi Jin-cheul popped up at the last minute to give the visitors a vital away goal and a good deal of hope.
