Do People Envy Paris Hilton So Much They Want to See Her Die?Written by Nathaniel Quest
See Paris Hilton Die says one caption on one of new horror flick House of Wax's promotional materials.
Now why would we want to see Paris Hilton, sweet and cuddly hotel heiress, die? Is it because everything about her is fun, or about having fun, and to see her die would be most fun of all? Are we a sick bunch of people? Wanting to see someone die?
Ok now, before I become anymore serious, am not really being serious here. Who in world can take Paris Hilton seriously? Ooops, isn't that a scary thought--not to be taken seriously by others? Aren't we all longing to have a place of importance in this world... to be taken seriously?
Learn To Play Poker Online In Order To Make Money - Pot OddsWritten by Dean Harding
For most people, there are only two real reasons to play poker: fun and profit, which are sometimes interrelated (more profit means more fun).
But in order to make money by playing poker online, you should always be gathering information about your opponents and, why not, about yourself. Asides that, another vital thing is ability to determine, use and understand pot odds, which is one of most underrated concepts for beginning online poker players. Pot odds are calculations used during a game of poker that put concept of risk and reward into numbers. In this article, we provide you with an explanation of pot odds in order to help you start using them in your game.
Whenever you are in a hand and need to decide whether or not to call a bet, count how many cards that are still unseen that can come on turn and/or river that can help you. Then check number on chart below to get pot odds. For example, you have A5s with two more of your suit on flop. Therefore you have 9 outs to make nut flush. Your odds of hitting it on turn are 4.2 to 1 and to hit it on turn or river 1.9 to 1. If you are only concerned about hitting it on turn, pot must have at least 4.2 times amount you must place in pot to make this a profitable call. If you are playing no-limit holdem and a player has moved all-in, if there is at least 1.9 times amount you have to call in pot it is a correct call and will be profitable in long run. Pot odds are just a quick way of seeing if a bet will be profitable if you are in same situation thousands of times.
