KLIN AND CO IN FLOP FEAR; RAITH ROVERS v BAYERN MUNICH.

In their first-ever venture into Europe, Raith lost the first leg

2-0 but Lennon stunned Bayern in the return when he gave Rovers an

incredible lead three minutes before the break.

“The Celtic game will be an interesting test and it will be

good to see Andreas Thom, I have seen a couple of his goals on TV.”

Bayern recovered in the second half and goals from Klinsmann and

Markus Babbel put them through.

It was one of those crazy night’s as the Raith players sat in

the Olympic Stadium dressing room at half-time holding an amazing 1-0

lead over mighty Bayern.

Rovers fans look set to snub tonight’s glamour showpiece against German cracks Bayern.

Klin could move on at the end of the season and he admitted:

“There has been contact from clubs in the Premiership and it’s

always a pleasure when big clubs in England show an interest in

you.”

Lennon revealed: “When we went in with that lead Jimmy just

looked at our faces and burst out laughing.

Bayern arrived in Scotland last night for their double header which

will also see them take on Celtic tomorrow night in Peter Grant’s

testimonial.

Meanwhile, Bayern agreed yesterday to sell Christian Ziege, star of

Germany’s Euro 96 triumph, to AC Milan for pounds 4.5m.

Klinsmann said: “The two games are part of our preparations

for the second half of the season.

Assistant boss Steve Kirk is still confident there’ll be a

good turnout to see Jurgen Klinsmann and co. None of us could believe we

were beating the famous Bayern Munich.”

In fact, Danny Lennon can still hear his old Rovers gaffer Jimmy

Nicholl ROARING with laughter.

Tonight’s match will bring back a million memories for Raith

who played Bayern in the UEFA Cup in 1995 – and gave them the fright of

their lives.

Only 2500 tickets have been sold for the friendly which marks the

official opening of the new stands at Stark’s Park.

Lennon added: “To score against Bayern was fantastic.

They’re one of the biggest clubs in the world and Raith managed to

give them a run for their money. He said: “Bayern are

one of the biggest names in world football and with the game drawing

closer there has been more and more interest.”

And Rovers are so anxious the big night doesn’t turn into a

huge flop that they’ve cut prices and fans can now also pay at the

gate.

Bayern-Dortmund Champions League final spells trouble for Bundesliga?

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on August 19, 2015 in Uncategorized |

m88 the biggest obstacle to change in Germany may come from those very supporters, many of whom view the English Premier League with disdain, given that they see themselves at the center of a club’s structure.

The Bundesliga boasts some of the world’s finest stadia, and its commitment to safe standing areas has helped enable clubs to keep prices low, as well as creating the boisterously vibrant atmosphere that characterizes top-flight games.

Formerly known as SSV Markranstdt, league regulations prevent the club using the Red Bull brand in its name, so it settled on RB Leipzig instead; but there is no ambiguity over the power driving it forward, with a reported planned $128 million investment to take the club to the Bundesliga by 2017.

In 2009, Rasen Ballsport Leipzig (better known as RB Leipzig) became the fourth club in Red Bull’s football portfolio, alongside Red Bull Salzburg of Austria, Red Bull Brasil, and the New York Red Bulls of the American MLS.

Those seeking a balance between these sometimes awkward bedfellows will often point to Germany and the Bundesliga. Story highlightsBayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund to contest Champions League finalGerman football’s Bundesliga is often held up as ideal league modelIts “50+1″ ownership rule viewed as key to stability for its clubsBut have Bayern and Dortmund created “duopoly” endangering that stability?Most fans would agree that a great football league needs some key ingredients: skilful players, excitement and drama on the pitch; and off the field, passionate supporters and owners who love and understand the game. At the last vote on changing this rule, back in 2009, only Hannover 96 voted to scrap it.

The German system is geared towards preventing the influence of a rich benefactor from skewing the competition, but some argue that it will only serve to perpetuate the status quo.

Hannover has now won concessions in its attempt to change the “50+1″ rule, and these will allow sponsors with a long-term relationship with a club — more than 20 years — to take a stake in it.

However club fans are already protesting about these changes, perhaps anxious at the advantage such a move might give their rivals.

“The next five years will be interesting,” said Dykes. But is it?

In the domestic Bundesliga, Bayern finished 25 points clear of Dortmund and 36 points ahead of fourth-placed Schalke 04.

“It’s getting better,” says Wolter.

But it has been the club’s willingness to part with its top players at the height of their value that has restored Dortmund’s financial health.

Read: Bayern give Heynckes winning Bundesliga farewell

It’s not hard to see why Bayern and Dortmund have become so omnipotent both at home and abroad.

“Two great managers, two teams that almost mirror each other in the way they play, the way they attack, the way they defend without the ball,” former Bayern midfielder Owen Hargreaves told CNN.

Read: Bayern coach celebrates 1,000 games

This year, partly in response to incidents of crowd trouble at games, there have even been whispers that the prized standing areas could be abolished.

“Standing is vital to low ticket prices, but also the atmosphere and the overall product of German football,” said a skeptical Dykes.

“The league realizes that and I can’t see the standing areas being given up.

After promotion in its first season, followed by two years in German football’s fourth tier, its plans look to be on track as the club prepares to contest the playoffs for another promotion in June. With two clubs in Saturday’s Champions League final at London’s Wembley Stadium, high attendances, keenly-priced season tickets, equitable club ownership and the national team on an upward trajectory, German football appears to be in rude health.

Arguably the competition is beginning to resemble anything but.

Eight years ago it was on the brink of financial ruin, missing rent payments on its stadium and facing crippling losses. “Success comes and goes. I’m not worried.”

For Wolter, the key to success lies in a combination of youth and prudence.

“You look at a team like Freiburg, they have a good academy, a good coach; it’s still possible (to be successful).

“A lot of people in Germany love Bayern and love Dortmund, in the same way as people (in England) love Manchester United or Chelsea,” he added, “but there are a lot of people who root for the underdog as well. If we’re still talking about those two in a few years’ time, or Bayern are still miles ahead, then it would be a worry.

“At Dortmund, the average age is 23, and I think Jrgen Klopp has done such a remarkable job to take that group of players and virtually dominate some terrific European teams.”

Yet among German fans there are concerns.

“Of course the current situation could become unhealthy,” said Stuart Dykes, a Schalke season ticket-holder since 1988, and the supporter liaison officer project consultant at fan ownership campaigning body, Supporters Direct.

“Even Bayern, while obviously delighted to have won the title so comfortably, have talked about it not being in their interests to do it every year.

This means a club cannot be taken over by private investors. If Manchester United’s path to the English Premier League title looked like a cakewalk, the German champions could have taken the entire dessert trolley along with them. “We’ve shown elsewhere that we’re about a strong, sustainable investment and commitment. The new television contract has also given clubs more money …

Writing in the German tabloid Bild last month, Bayern’s former goalkeeper Oliver Kahn expressed fears that the domination of the Munich club and Dortmund — Bundesliga champions in 2011 and 2012 — is here to stay, and that the gulf at the top could widen even further in the future.

Even Dortmund’s manager Jrgen Klopp has remarked that the league is in danger of becoming boring.

“People look at that possibility and of course it could be bad, but why would it happen? Bayern have always spent big; Dortmund is an exceptional team, but where will they be in three years?

“Players lose form, get injured, things can change quite quickly.

Shinji Kagawa, signed for just $300,000 from the Japanese second division, was sold to Manchester United for $17 million, while Sahin joined Real Madrid for $12.8 million. It would be difficult under German federal law to ‘ban’ them anyway, so I just can’t see it happening.”

The worry for other Bundesliga clubs must be that the success of Dortmund and Bayern could put them out of sight in the financial and playing stakes; last year Chelsea received an estimated $77 million from winning the Champions League, while beaten finalist Bayern pocketed $53.65 million.

Youth and prudence

However, the notion that a couple of teams might dominate their league is not confined to Germany.

“Spain’s that way, the last three or four years the third or fourth place team, they still play Champions League and they’re 30 points behind,” said Hargreaves.

“Bayern have only conceded something like 15 goals, which is ridiculous in a full season,” he added. and these academies are profit centers,” he says.

But while the cheapest season tickets represent superb value, if fans turn up on match day looking for tickets then the story is rather different.

“Obviously (Dortmund and Bayern) have the power and the money to buy the best players as Bayern has done again; they’ve signed Gtze for 37 million, and you know, the rich get richer, and that’s just the way that football works,” said Hargreaves.

“People can argue that’s not fair, but they paid a lot of money to Dortmund — and they can invest that money in younger players.”

Read: Bayern complete rout of Barcelona

In England, the Premier League has taken a laissez-faire approach to regulating clubs’ finances. It’s a friendly family atmosphere here, with men, women, children, pensioners, it’s a different way.”

Germany’s often raucous fans are, however, part of the fabric of the Bundesliga experience. We don’t have ‘ultras’ and we don’t need them. “People are always talking about cheap tickets, but it can be misleading,” says Dykes. Ultimately the overall product of German football would suffer.”

Dortmund revival

Not content with running away with the Bundesliga this season, Bayern are already laying plans to dominate next season, notably with the appointment of former Barca coach Pep Guardiola — who guided the Catalonia club to 14 trophies in four years — to take over from Jupp Heynckes. So I think, in a way, it’s a fair balance.”

Read: Why Guardiola will make Bayern better

And Dykes remains unconvinced that a tipping point has been reached.

“It’s too early to be talking about a duopoly,” he said.

The club’s stadium, the impressive 45,000 capacity Red Bull Arena, is certainly ready.

“We accept this rule,” said RB Liepzig’s managing director Ulrich Wolter, referring to the “50+1″ rule.

“Why is our way the wrong way? What is the difference between our approach and a club with 50 different sponsors delivering the same thing?”

Even so RB Leipzig’s new investors have encountered resistance.

The pitch at its former stadium was attacked with weed killer not long after the takeover, and fans of other clubs can be less than welcoming.

Alongside huge television deals — the latest of which could see a record 5.5 billion ($8.3 billion) windfall in broadcasting income — extraordinarily wealthy owners such as Chelsea’s Roman Abramovich and Sheikh Mansour at Manchester City have been allowed to spend big for success.

Arguably Dortmund were unable to mount an effective challenge this season as they saved their best performances for the Champions League.

But the brilliance of both Bayern and Dortmund in their respective semifinal wins against Real Madrid and Barcelona suggests the Bundesliga needs to be wary of an emerging duopoly.

But these days soccer is also about big business, million-dollar deals and billionaire benefactors lining up to plow money into the game.

“Of course standing tickets are cheap, as you would expect; but once these go, and they’re usually in demand, the ticket prices at the top end are broadly comparable to those in England.”

In fact, at $88 the most expensive match-day ticket for Bayern is the same as that at Manchester City, for example — and $9 more expensive than at Manchester United.

But the model in Germany is very different.

Under the league’s “50+1″ rule, Bundesliga clubs must be controlled by their members — with at least 50% of shares, plus one, in their hands. It’s also about education, good background work.”

Nevertheless, as Bayern and Dortmund take the field at Wembley, some may be wondering if, as well as a moment of national pride, this game might also mark a less welcome watershed in German football.

.

“The intention of the rule is to secure the league’s integrity against short-term investment, I think everyone understands that.”

However, Wolter is frustrated at the resistance to RB Leipzig’s owners.

“Red Bull is not a Russian oligarch, or an Arabian sheikh,” he said.

Extraordinarily, a loan from Bayern played a part in Dortmund’s survival — with $2.5 million handed over to help stave off bankruptcy.

Dortmund’s path back to solvency and success has been paved by Klopp’s highly astute signings, such as Poland striker Lewandowski, as well as his trust in talented graduates from the club’s youth academy, like midfielder Nuri Sahin. “We’re proud of our family and spectators. “The rules have had exceptions to allow for the different ownership structures of teams like Bayer Leverkusen and Vfl Wolfsburg, but Hannover has argued that this leaves them at a disadvantage, and you can see why.”

Read: Football enters space age with ‘Footbonaut’

But how is a booming Bundesliga affecting German football further down the feeding chain?

In the former East Germany, far from the country’s football powerbase, one lowly team’s fortunes are being transformed by Austrian soft drink company Red Bull’s takeover.

Dortmund’s hopes of catching Bayern next season have been further jeopardized by the loss of playmaker Mario Gotze, who recently agreed to join the Munich club at the end of this season in a $56 million deal.

Rumors of a Bayern bid for the Bundesliga’s second-highest scorer Robert Lewandowski, whose four goals against Real Madrid in the semis propelled Dortmund to Wembley, suggest a strategy centered on dismantling their only rivals’ chances before next season has even begun.

Read: English Premier League should follow Bundesliga example

The consolation for Dortmund fans is that at least the club has some money to spend to try to keep pace. “But it’s not all about money

Chelsea FC’s Beautifully Ugly EPL Game | Michael Conniff

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on August 19, 2015 in Uncategorized |

m88 that way we win.”

CON GAMES — The Culture Editor of the New York Times, who deigns on bad days to write about sports, says: “Sports are absurd.” (This in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine.) But if you’re a true sports fan, then you know Culture Editor is in way over his head — a man down in the brain with a dugout phone that doesn’t work and a red card in his wallet that he never leaves home without.

Instead, Chelsea’s second half against QPR microwaved into a classic.

Absurd, right? Down 1-0 on the road and two men down, Chelsea should have given up. What better word or way for a scribe to describe the second half of Chelsea FC’s war over the weekend against Queens Park Rangers (QPR), promoted to the Premier League this season after 15 years in the dustbin of relegation. You slog and blog through game after game in sport after sport — and then something happens, and you instantly understand why you have invested all that time and why the ultimate payoff is worth it.

The list is long and could be longer (Meireles, Ivanovic, Anelka) — but the point is that nine men railed together against the Fates. Attacking midfielder Frank Lampard, left for dead a month ago, was transcendent, racing about the pitch and throwing his body about with no regard for tomorrow. Absurdist as it may seem, angry players playing with an edge generally play their best. That’s exactly what I love about it. They lost but it was defeat replete with glory that can only bode well for whatever follows.. Goalies don’t often get a chance to show they are consummate field players, but Cech pulled it off without a blip at Loftus Road.

Chelsea, you see, was supremely pissed at Foy, at QPR, at QPR’s loathsome bandy-legged fans, at the injustice of their situation. (A central defender charging a keeper!) The Brazilian David Luis, responsible for the foul that gave up a penalty kick and the only goal, was as ubiquitous as Terry, with particular malice in the box waiting for corner kicks. Captain John Terry, the central defender who just opened his own snake shop, played like he had responsibility for the entire pitch, at one point provoking a brouhaha when he charged into the QPR goalie. With Drogba and Jose Bosingwa gone for the day, Foy’s decisions meant Chelsea would now play the vast majority of the second stanza 11 against 9 — an all but hopeless situation.

But first-year Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas (AVB), thirty-something, would have none of it, amigo. Now we play football like we are nine-headed monster. Left back Ashley Cole became a left wing and an instant danger man.

So, yes, I guess you could say sports is absurd. No one has a position any more. The Chelsea nine were not only spectacular as individuals but unforgettable as a group, and I give the manager credit. QPR played Chelsea at home at Loftus Road before over 18,000 — their largest crowd of the season in a high-school bandbox.

Watching sports is its own reward. All hail Chelsea FC.

You want absurd? I’ll give you absurd. When one of you moves, everyone moves. Tactically, the second half was a masterpiece, as if AVB had said to his nonet: “We are going to win and here’s how. For Cech that meant he was constantly propelled beyond the 18-yard box and into the field in the role of sweeper performed without flaw. After the weekend’s 6-1 pasting by Manchester City, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson — he’s a knight, for Chrissakes — said he should have pulled the lads back and conceded a man-down loss to their in-town derby rival. There was no hint that this match was to become a game for the ages — until Didier Drogba perpetrated a two-footed tackle that earned a red card from referee Chris Foy, the second such ticket he had issued against Chelsea that day.

Think of it this way: by the end of the match, every Chelsea player on the pitch had a yellow card to go with the two reds — literally everyone except Petr Cech, the keeper with the padded head

Hedge Fund Returning 17% on Sports Bets Moving to Europe

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on May 2, 2015 in Uncategorized |

Galileo, which had offices in London, owed creditors more than 2 million pounds ($3 million) when Centaur folded in 2012.

“There are opportunities in sports betting for individuals but I am not sure that a fund would be able to do much damage,” Blake said.

Priomha Capital Pty Ltd, an Australian hedge fund manager that bets clients’ money on sports, plans to relocate to Gibraltar by the end of the year to double the A$5 million ($3.9 million) it has under management.

Employing a method used by individual gamblers and syndicates, Priomha looks for value by tracking sports statistics against betting odds before and during matches. Former Centaur CEO Keith Sobey couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Melbourne-based Priomha’s multisports fund returned an average of 17 percent since 2010 by m88 betting all of the funds as often as twice a month, Chief Executive Officer Brendan Poots said in a telephone interview. The relocation will also bring tax advantages, he added.. Priomha employs three statisticians to work with traders, and bases as little as 20 percent of decision-making on “qualitative” judgment, such as the effect on a team of the injury of a key player, Poots said. Priomha uses computer models to wager on English Premier League soccer, as well as cricket, horse racing, golf and tennis.

Poots said he’s in advanced talks with Gibraltar’s Financial Services Commission about becoming a private fund, “a sort of traineeship” for 12 months, and then becoming an experienced investor fund.

Even if the fund’s model is effective, its expansion will be restricted by the volume of regulated betting in sports, according to Peter Blake, founder of Hook, England-based Bet Angel Ltd., which sells software to help individuals to wager on sports trading exchanges such as Betfair Plc.

Blake, who’s also a professional sports gambler, said it’s not possible to bet more than about 175,000 pounds on the Grand National, one of the U.K.’s biggest horse races, without distorting market prices.

Investors will have “a greater degree of comfort” after we move because hedge funds in Gibraltar are regulated more thoroughly than in Australia, according to Poots, a former cricketer who played for the U.K.’s Sussex. It hedges betting to offset potential losses.

The sports fund, which will target high net worth individuals and family offices, has expanded more cautiously than Galileo, a previous sports-gambling fund managed by Centaur Global Ltd., Poots said. Centaur overstretched itself while still working on such algorithms when it opened its sports fund in 2010, according to Poots

How to start playing at best online casino USA?

Which is the best online casino website?

Sports :: How to Make Money Betting on Horse Racing

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on May 20, 2016 in Uncategorized |

You will find the “Daily Racing Form” available at most newsstands, at horse racing venues and by direct-mail subscription as well as online downloads.

Make money betting on horse racing by learning how to handicap the horses properly by reading the articles on this site. You might also read online blogs about horse racing in order to make money by betting on horse racing. You will find that most horse racing blogs are moderated and maintained by experts who have developed reliable handicapping systems and are more than willing to share secrets with subscribers. By handicapping the horses and race conditions and studying the various mathematical models, you may make money betting on horse racing.

Finally, use online resources, such as TwinSpires, to make bets online and receive free tips on handicapping

. In addition, track the performance of each horse and knowing whether the performance of the horse is improving with maturity or declining with age. You will also need to know how each horse performs in a variety of weather and track conditions and whether there is a synergy between the horse and a particular jockey. In addition, I suggest using a system that has been proven. In addition, I suggest that you concentrate on only one or two race tracks every horse betting season. In addition, many of these blogs feature online-discussion forums on which you can swap information about effective betting methods and systems.

In addition, I suggest that you review all race results on a regular basis by studying copies of the “Daily Racing Form.” This newspaper can be instrumental in teaching you how to handicap properly and win more money. I do not use a computer software to make money on betting on horse racing. I spend my time knowing the Southern California race tracks

While there is no guarantee that anyone will win consistently by betting on horse races, recent developments in computer software and handicapping methods have reduced the amount of financial risk. I use “How to ‘Place Bet’ on Favorites for a Living” by Mohammed Ali

10 Websites and Games Like Club Penguin (Virtual Worlds)

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on May 20, 2016 in Uncategorized |

There are many websites and games like Club Penguin that offer a great experience for children, teenagers and even their parents.

I originally put this list together for a family friend and decided to share it here so other fans of the Club Penguin universe can find similar experiences that are both fun, friendly and safe. If you have any additional favourite games please don’t hesitate to share them in the comment section at the end of the page.

If you are a fan of Club Penguin looking for another fun virtual world to play or a parent seeking information about other safe online games like Club Penguin for your child (or children) then this page will prove to be an invaluable resource.

While Club Penguin was one of the first really successful games in this space there has been a huge increase in the number of virtual worlds targeted at tweens over the past few years as companies quickly realise it is a huge (and growing market).

This flood of games into the market has produced some real great games like Club Penguin but also many poor game experiences and even some fantastic ones that have closed down (such as ToonTown Online and Star86) which can also be frustrating after having invested so much time in a game that you love.

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on May 19, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Justin Thomas tied for 39th at the Masters. Then a number of notable golfers are also listed with comments who have much higher odds this week to win the 2016 RBC Heritage.

1.

T-13. Snedeker has eight PGA Tour wins including his latest win which was at the 2016 Farmers Insurance Open in early February. Charley Hoffman tied for 29th at the Masters last week. Boo made the cut in his last two tournaments but he was no threat to win either time.

7. He missed the cut last week but improvement is expected this week.

The 2016 RBC Heritage golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from April 14-17, 2016, at the Harbor Town Golf Links at the Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Jason Dufner, Charles Howell, Charley Hoffman, Tony Finau, Luke Donald, Graeme McDowell – 50 to 1 odds each

Bill Haas tied for 24th last week at the Masters. He does have 13 European Tour wins but his last win was in 2014.

Carl Pettersson – 225 to 1 odds

Kevin Na has now played in 312 PGA events and he only has one win. Here is a list of the betting odds for the PGA golfers to win the 2016 RBC Heritage golf tournament.

6. Billy Horschel, Branden Grace, Kevin Na – 40 to 1 odds each

Boo Weekley won the RBC Heritage in back-to-back years in 2007 and 2008. Kevin Kisner – 25 to 1

Listed below are all the PGA golfers with odds of 50 to 1 or less with comments. He’s a talented golfer but he never wins. Billy Horschel tied for 17th at the Masters last week which is not bad but Horschel only has three tour wins and his last win was at the Tour Championship in 2014.

Boo Weekley – 140 to 1 odds. Matt Kuchar, Zach Johnson – 22 to 1 odds each

Young 21 year old Matthew Fitzpatrick from England tied for 7th at the Masters earning himself a return trip next year. The big news for the 2016 RBC Heritage is that Jason Day is in the field and he is easily the highest ranked golfer here this week.

3. He has 21 PGA Tour wins including a shocker last year at the 2015 Wyndham Championship at age 51.

Matt Kuchar tied for 24th at the Masters. Bill Haas, Justin Thomas – 33 to 1 odds each

Brian Gay won this tournament in 2009. Justin Leonard is 43 years old and he has 12 PGA Tour wins but his last win was in 2008.

Stewart Cink – 150 to 1 odds

The RBC Heritage golf tournament dates back to 1969 when Arnold Palmer won the inaugural event. Paul Casey has only won once on the PGA Tour back in 2009. Aaron Baddeley won the RBC Heritage in 2006. Paul Casey – 16 to 1

Justin Leonard won this tournament in 2002. Kuchar has seven PGA Tour wins but his last win was in the RBC Heritage in 2014. He’s 32 years old and his only PGA Tour win came last November in the RSM Classic. He has four career PGA Tour wins but his last win was in 2013. Tony Finau won for the first time on tour on March 27, 2016 at the Puerto Rico Open, an alternate PGA Tour event. Haas has six PGA Tour wins with his last win coming in January of 2015. He’ll win this week if he’s back to his previous form but is 5.5 to 1 odds worth the risk?

2. The rest of these golfers at 50 to 1 odds each did not play last week in the major.

Justin Leonard – 175 to 1 odds

Luke Donald is a fomer #1 ranked golfer but he’s not won a tournament since 2012. Matthew Fitzpatrick – 30 to 1

Stewart Cink has wins in this tournament in both 2000 and 2004. Fitzpatrick has a lot of talent and he won his first pro tournament last October at the 2015 British Masters on the European Tour. If Jason Day falters this week this kid could win.

Graeme McDowell won the RBC Heritage in 2013. Jason Day – 5.5 to 1 odds

Notables

Brandt Snedeker tied with Jason Day last week in 10th place at the Masters. Branden Grace missed the cut at the Masters last week but the 27 year old has seven European Tour wins including the 2016 Qatar Masters in January. That was the last of his five PGA Tour wins. Snedeker also won this tournament in 2011.

Davis Love III – 250 to 1 odds

After a 10th place tie in the Masters last week, Jason Day is still ranked as the #1 golfer in the world and he’s the fairly heavy favorite to win the 2016 RBC Heritage at betting odds of 5.5 to 1. He’s got three PGA Tour wins but his last win was in 2011.

Good luck to all the PGA golfers and especially the bettors this week at the 2016 RBC Heritage!

After being the low amateur at the Masters and tying for 21st place overall, Bryson DeChambeau is turning pro for the 2016 RBC Heritage.Not many golfers win their pro debuts and this guy should be higher than 66 to 1 odds this week.

Aaron Baddeley – 140 to 1 odds

Kevin Kisner tied for 37th place at the Masters last week. Baddeley missed the cut at Houston two weeks ago in his last start. Charles Howell has two wins on tour in 463 starts. Prior to The Masters, Jason Day won the Arnold Palmer and the WGC Match play in back-to-back weeks but he took a week off before the Masters. Davis Love III (1987, 1991, 1992, 1998, 2003) holds the record for most wins in the tournament with five followed by Hale Irwin (1971, 1973, 1994) with three wins. Weekley also won at Colonial in 2013 for three career PGA Tour wins. In his last start, Brian missed the cut at the Valspar Championship over a month ago.

Davis Love III holds the record for most wins in this tournament with five but his last win here was in 2005. Brandt Snedeker – 20 to 1

T-10. He’s 44 years old and he has six wins on the PGA Tour with his last win coming in 2009 at The British Open for his only career major.

Bryson DeChambeau – 66 to 1 odds

T-8. Zach Johnson has not won since capturing his second major at the 2015 British Open last July. Pettersson has missed the cut in his last two PGA tournaments.

Davis tied for 42nd last week at the Masters. Thomas is 22 years old and he won for the first time on tour last November in the 2015 CIMB Classic.

Carl Pettersson from Sweden won the RBC Heritage in 2012

Room Report: El San Juan Resort and Casino, A Hilton Hotel

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on May 19, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Public areas feature beautiful artwork and lavish marble that hail from all corners of the globe. La Piccola Fontana satiates those with an appetite for Northern Italian cuisine. The former are spacious and modern, but it is the latter that offers the best position to listen to the lapping waves from the furnished balcony. The beachfront area is known for its high-end resorts and excellent views of the sea. Around town, this hotel is a favorite for social functions and business meetings, and the high reputation is evident in the pride staff has for its facilities. On the top floor of the hotel is a popular casual restaurant, Brother Jimmy’s, that has everything from barbecue and wings to exotic drinks. Once out of the taxi though, frustrations melt away. Bathrooms have glass shower stalls with strong pressure and wide vanities stocked with Lather toiletry products.

Amenities: One of the city’s largest ballrooms is here, and it is often used for corporate and social functions.

Rooms: Guest rooms are located in the main building or the separate beachfront buildings. A separate bar in the casino handles those passing time donating their money to the house.

Arrival Experience: Located just a five-minute drive from the airport, El San Juan Resort and Casino is situated in the heart of Isla Verde. All rooms feature tiled floors with strong air conditioning and ceiling fans. Start your day at the Starbucks outlet in the lobby or the waterfront restaurant serving a colorful breakfast buffet. In-room perks include coffeemakers, flat-screen cable TVs, iPod docking stations, and safes. Reservations are a must, and a dress code is imposed. The galleria area houses many boutique shops for those that win cash in the casino or tire of sitting by the pool. The thumping nightclub is the place to see and be seen on weekends. Along the shopping corridor of the hotel is another Starbucks and a Japanese restaurant with teppanyaki tables and a sushi bar. To the left, reception sits underneath several arched windows, which continue the vintage look and feel of this resort.. This resort benefits from an excellent beachfront location and a unique style that sets it apart from every other hotel in the area. The hotel was originally built and owned by Pan Am (explaining the proximity to the airport), and the same glamour of the era continues today. Uber is yet to arrive on the island, and few hotels offer free shuttles. Lunch and dinner are also served here, and some of the same menu items can be enjoyed along the beach or as guests wade in the swimming pool. Underwater seating with table tops permit guests to sip cocktails or even play cards while they stay refreshed in the cool water. Spacious desks provide cordless speaker phones and free wireless Internet access to loyalty program members. Back in the lobby, the new Meat Market-Miami is an upscale steakhouse serving prime cuts of meat a la Morton’s style. The lobby is a luxurious throwback with polished wood paneling, sparkling chandeliers, a trio of bars (one in each corner), and a dress code that keeps the space looking classy. Taxis seem to have a stranglehold on the local market charging a flat $16 plus extra for bags to travel the short distance. The outdoor terrace permits exceptional views across town. Large beds have soft duvets and a stack of pillows. Its Hilton backing adds to the benefit since guests can earn and redeem points for their stays here.

Dining: There is no shortage of places to eat and drink here. Guests can dine on the terrace worry-free as netting protects the food from ravenous birds. With three swimming pools, there is space for everyone to relax including families and adult areas

Blackjack vs. Poker by Kenneth Bateman

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on May 18, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Played as a private game until around 1915, Blackjack was known by it’s French name of “Vingt-Un, (twenty-one). Blackjack was hugely popular in the illegal casinos and card rooms of the U.S., but the game reached it’s zenith when the State of Nevada legalized gambling within its borders in 1931. It was then that the game could be played by locals and visitors, as well as the professional gamblers that were once only able to ply their trade illegally.

Blackjack has evolved in the casinos, and having a “black” Jack and an Ace of Spades is no longer the sole means of getting Blackjack. In fact, many land-based casinos featured Blackjack over poker. Shortly after the end of WW II Blackjack’s popularity soared, and the game was second in popularity only to Craps, it’s rise largely attributed to returning American soldiers, who played the game most frequently as a diversion from the strife of the War years. By the early Fifties, Blackjack had become the most popular card game in the U.S.

Although Blackjack remained highly popular, the game was surely being overshadowed by the multitude of high-profile poker tournaments. The Ultimate Blackjack Tour for example, may be hot on the heels of the WSOP tour’s popularity, since the UBT will feature not only the best Blackjack players, but championship-level poker players as well. . The game became “Blackjack” when the casinos established bonus payouts if a player’s first two cards dealt were a Black Jack (spades or clubs), and an Ace of Spades.

Blackjack has always rivaled poker for popularity. Not any more. Some casinos in the not so distant past even closed their poker rooms for lack of activity.

- Blackjack – Ten value card and an Ace

- Broke or Bust – Hand card value over 21

- Hit or Draw – Request for additional cards

- Splitting Pairs – Two of the same value cards “split” into separate hands

- Double-Down – Both cards turned face-up. One extra card dealt only.

- Stand/Stay/Stick – No additional cards requested

- Push – Player and dealer have the same value hand – no winner

A Brief Blackjack Glossary For The Beginner:

Blackjack vs. Now, any ten-value card ( ten or face card ), and an Ace of any color gives one a “Blackjack”.

Although various card games similar to what we now know as Blackjack had been played in other countries for many years, Blackjack did not make an appearance in American casinos until a few years prior to WW I. Poker

 by: Kenneth Bateman

Although the basic principle of Blackjack is simple; card values are added in an attempt to reach twenty-one without going over, the game is not purely one of luck, as there are numerous strategies that can be employed to increase one’s chances of winning.

Since the advent of televised poker tournaments, like the World Poker Tour, and the World Series of Poker, in particular, replete with celebrity players and fabulous amounts of prize money awarded the tournament champions, poker has taken the world by storm.

In the early 1930′s Blackjack had increased it’s popularity among gamblers to the point that it was now the third most popular game played, second only to Roulette and Craps

The Best Long Shot Bet in Horse Racing Handicapping

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on May 17, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Handicapping horse races for profit and trying to make money betting on races is hard enough without going after those horses who seem so unlikely to win.

It is amazing how many times you will find a race where the favorite has not done what is being asked of it but another horse, going off at long odds, has done it. If you have the ability to watch the pools and spot inside money it is also helpful to know if the barn is betting that longshot.

Next, look at each one of these racers and see if it has ever won at the distance, on the same surface, and at the same class level or higher. So the real secret to making money on longshots is finding a person who can spot a good longshot bet in the racing form or program and then make money from the bet.

There is no one single formula for finding good long shot bets, but there are a few clues. Once you have identified horses that have proven they can win at the distance, surface, and level, find out if the horse who is the likely favorite in the race has done the same thing.

It does happen sometimes, but before you declare that person a genius, find out if he or she is ahead on his or her bets. Do you ever wonder who had the horse and if it is all the people who just play their lucky number? Does it ever occur to you that someone actually looked at the racing program and picked that horse to win for a reason?

What you are trying to find out is if that horse can improve today and also if the favorite is a false favorite. This is the single most important clue to finding a good bet on a horse going off at long odds. Now circle each horse that qualifies. Since horses go in and out of form and also respond to training and equipment changes, any horse that once managed to do what is being asked of it today should be considered a threat especially when the favorite is vulnerable.. Is it coming back from a long layoff? Does its form seem to have tapered off?

But when a longshot does win, somebody cashes tickets on that winner. Figure out why the horse you circled is now a long shot if it has indeed proven itself capable of winning a race such as today’s race. Now comes the tricky part. While most people would agree, after a few trips to the horse races, that long shot bets are where the money is, however, after losing money trying to win a few, most will agree they are also difficult to hit. The goal of playing the ponies is to make money, a profit. Before the races, go through the racing form and find every horse that is in the morning line at 10-1 or higher.

Every day, at race tracks all over the world, people are surprised when horses win races even though the horse has done it before under the same conditions
