Nextel Cup Driver, Nadeau To Help Raise Money For a Charitable Cause at The “Jerry Nadeau เเทงหวยออนไลน์ Challenge and Cruise”

Thoughts on the State of QQWIN99

I. Nelson Rose wrote a very interesting article last week on the State of Poker. I would like to offer some alternative comments and expository meanderings on some excerpts of his thoughts.
Mr. Rose’s words are in italics.
“The European Court of Justice and the European Commission have issued dramatic statements calling for the end of barriers to internet gambling. Some observers see these as the beginning of the end for America’s Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act and the opening of doors to internet poker.”
I agree with Mr. Rose that there will be a dramatic confrontation within the EU regarding online gaming and perhaps even with a special exemption for poker. I also agree that many in the United States and some Far East nations see this as an opening for them to implement laws and regulations in their own countries.
“These developments are certainly much needed good news for publicly traded online QQWIN99 companies, like PartyGaming. But I believe people are being way too optimistic in believing that changes in the law in Europe, or even direct challenges from Europe, will lead to any relaxing of U.S. federal prohibitions in the immediate future.”
I would go even further and say that positive changes for E.U. member nations poker players will actually have negative consequences for U.S. poker players. You see if the E.U. actually opens up its online gaming operations, the European Poker Tour could very rapidly replace the WPT as the premiere poker tour. Why do you think the WSOP held its first European event this year? A unified and open online poker community under the E.U. auspices could funnel thousands of players to E.U. based tournaments.
Poker or Sex
There is an online poll running that asks the question:
“What is more important, sex or poker?”
In early voting the numbers are 70% sex and 30% poker. Unfortunately the test is what we call a static answer model. Meaning no matter how you consider the question and no matter how many ways you say “Well what if?’ or “It Depends”, no matter how you ponder or wiggle; you only get to check:
A) Sex or B)Poker
What I would suggest for those serious students of poker psychology and those who consider the answer obvious, what I suggest is that you seriously answer to yourself, in private, behind closed doors, in super secret seclusion — the following: When you first read the question:
“What is more important, poker or sex?”
How long did you hesitate before delivering the (your) obvious answer?
It doesn’t matter which answer you picked. The “Sex” people will say the “poker” answer is crazy and the “Poker” people will say the same about the “sex” people. But for you, deep down inside, sitting alone in your hotel room after ten hours of poker or ten minutes of sex, the real question is— How long did you really think about it before you answered?
Only you know the answer to that question but I suggest you never tell your partner or your dealer how long you actually hesitated.

How to Play Pai Gow sbobet Poker

With less than 24 hours to touchdown, I’m left with too much to do and too little time to do it. There’s work, side work, packing, dog kenneling, errands, etc. I’ve done my best to cover everything I can in advance of the WPBT trip this weekend.
However, one thing remains undone.
So, I give you…
How to Play Pai Gow Poker (Version: Otis)
First, if you don’t already know the rules and basic strategy of sbobet , go learn. That’s not what this is about. This is about how to play optimal Pai Gow Poker while under the influence.
1. Play drunk– If you are not already intoxicated when you sit down at a Pai Gow Poker table, you’re going to have to start getting there as soon as you sit down. Summon the nearest cocktail waitress with the following phrase: “Hey, darlin’, you have time for me right now?” Smile when you say it. Then put a dollar chip beside your drink holder and say, “There will be one of those sitting there at all times. Just take it whenever you bring the next drink.” Then smile again.
2. Beg the dealer to deal him/herself a Pai Gow– Ideally, you want the dealer to draw the worst possible cards and let everybody win. You should beg for this at all times and appear genuinely hurt when the dealer draws even halfway decent cards. However, if the dealer cooperates, you must–must–yell “Pai Gow!” at the top of your lungs. Make sure your table yells along with you. High-five each other and stack your chips.
3. Act smug– After you have completed #2, people at nearby tables (usually those who are losing at roulette) will start to stare at you with annoyed looks on their faces. Look at them and offer a smug smile that says, “We win, you lose, sucker.” After you’ve done this a few times, wave them over and ask them if they’d like to play a game where they can win. If they won’t come over, make sure to wave every time you win.
4. Beg for the Dragon– In some casinos, you are offered the option of playing an empty seat’s cards in addition to your own. This is usually called The Dragon. Every player can take the option in rotation. It is your job to beg for it every time it is offered. If necessary, offer to buy the Dragon from your tablemate. If he refuses, look very smug when he loses both hands. Then wave at him like you’ve been waving at the roulette players.
5. Play the bonus– If your Pai Gow table offers the option of a bonus bet for high hands, you must–must–play it. If you don’t have dollar chips/coins, ask for change. Keep in mind, you will never, ever win. However, each time you drop the coin in the slot, thoughtfully tap the felt and say, “This is the time. I feel it.”
6. Make sure the pit boss notices you– Your antics to this point will surely have drawn the pit boss’ eye. He may think you’re running some scam. Set him at ease. Call him over and ask him about life, things, and whatnot. If he says, “Life is not whatnot,” laugh like you think it’s funny. About two hours into the game, start talking about how good steak and eggs would be. If he fails to get the hint, you need to add a bit to your Pai Gow cheer. Any time the dealer draws a Pai Gow, scream, “Pai Gow–Steak and Eggs!!!!”
7. Consume the Official Drink of Pai Gow– If you want to be a real champ, order a Greyhound every time the cocktail waitress comes along. If she is especially cute, see if you can draw her into a quiet lament about how Salty Dogs aren’t allowed because the salt can get on the felt. If she sheds a tear, give her a red bird and tell her to go have a Salty Dog on you. It’s up to you how many sexual overtones you want to use.
8. Engage the dealer– It is your job to be or act inordinately interested in the dealer’s name, pronounciation of the name, and country of origin. Do not let up until you could write a paper about all three subjects.
9. Do not be ashamed– While Pai Gow games work better as group activities, do not be ashamed if you are the only one at the table. At 2am, you have a job to do, and if you have to go it alone, so be it.
10. The Disclaimer– I play Pai Gow as described above. Please be aware that any of the above can result in going broke, getting slapped, getting barred from the casino, or waking up with a hella hangover.
So, um…who is with me?

Playin’ in the slot hoki Band

So, beaten and bewildered, Otis and I emerged from the bar… ready for the big tournament of STARS. Or, at the very least, tournament of players who slot hoki are verifiably better than G-Rob. I knew I wouldn’t win, I just wanted one big score. I hit it early.
December 14, 7:00 PM (Eastern)
Wife of G-Rob : So, how much did you lose?
G-Rob : Some
Wife of G-Rob : Did you play badly?
G-Rob : Not at all. I dropped the hammer in a tournament.
Wife of G-Rob : Is that good?
G-Rob : No. Its the worst hand in poker. But let’s see if we can buy our groceries with pride.
Back in Vegas 1 PM ish (Vegas Time)
Does it really matter who I’m seated with? Sure other, better bloggers have detailed notes (speaking of which, I’m patting Otis down from now on. Nobody remembers that much detail) but I do remember this much, I was with Otis, Bad Blood, and Al. The rest is hazy. Remember, I’m a lush.
But, alas the crowing achievement was the first hand of the game. I’m in the SB and LO…the hammer. I remember 5 limpers to me, so out of pure blogger loyalty, I raised it 300. Folds all around, and I have glory. That’s the boobie prize for sure.
(Side note : last night I played with Maudie on UB and an aggressive all-in hammer play against two callers ended my night early)
I took the second hand of the tourney too. I was dealt AQ off on the button and with just 3 limpers I pushed all in. Two rounds of stolen blinds. YEE-HAW! I never won another hand. I was further crippled by AL CAN’T FOLD when with top pair and top kicker I raised it to another 3 hundred and he pushed all in.
A smarter tournament player probably would have called, especially since I’m positive he was banking on two over cards to draw. But because I foolishly wanted to ENDURE in the game, I folded and lost my bet. Dammit.
I made it to 19th, when in the SB I was dealt A 6 off and pushed in. Felicia, in the BB called me blind and showed 8 10 off. She caught a 10 in the river and I had plenty of time to play blackjack with Bad Blood. The good news is I won my tournament buy-in back.
4 PM (Vegas time)
So here we are a gaggle of losers. Otis, Marty (who finished 8th by the way), and I went searching for a cab and what would be my very first hours of sleep since getting to work at Midnight Vegas on Friday.
But ‘splain this to me please. A giant casino like Sam’s town with, I presume a gigantic number of tourists, has ZERO taxis standing by. We headed out the front door, we walked around to the side. We inspected the space near the dumpsters in the back, but apart from a flock of dim-witted hats there was NOTHING! Double dammit.
Finally we found a charming car hop who told us there was a WAIT LIST for cabs. Next one….30 minutes. The crash begins. Otis passed out on a bench. Marty pacing like an expectant father with an itchy bladder and me…ever used peyote? (For those of you who know my secret identity….neither have I)
When we did find a cab I climbed into the front…for the 37 hour ride to the strip. Otis was unconcious. I would’ve loved another round of rib-kickin’ fun but he was too far away and the cabbie would likely not be amused. C’est la vie.
NOW….he good stuff…really I promise.
If it seems like I’ve blazed through all the actual poker content, I have. I mean REALLY good stuff ahead and its important to me that I get to tell it first before Otis spoils it with better writing and his idiot savant recall of detail.
SO..that said…I’m being concise.

JuneauJyack wins togel hongkong WCOOP Event 45

The togel hongkong World Championship of Online Poker turned up the speed with Event 45. There were a couple of things about said tournament that made it one of the most action-packed tournaments of the WCOOP. Firstly, every player had a $50 bounty on their head that needed to be paid on top of the $200 + $15 buy-in (it cost $265 total to enter the tournament). On top of the bounties, PokerStars made each level five minutes long making this tournament a turbo. PokerStars set their guarantee at $300,000 but the 2,987 that registered nearly doubled the prize pool making it $597,400. This was on top of the $149,350 that to be given out in $50s after each player was knocked out.
The tournament was fast-paced and did not take long to wind down. At the three-hour mark, only five tables of nine players were left. Thirty minutes after that, the tournament was down to three tables. It only took about four hours from the start of the tournament to get to the final table. At that point, players were already paying 125K/250K chips in blinds with a 31,250 chip ante. The final table stacked up as follows:
Seat 1 – PiRaToS14 – 1,284,362 chips
Seat 2 – hook2120 – 1,531,138 chips
Seat 3 – MSU10s – 595,182 chips
Seat 4 – Mr Swatch – 1,417,676 chips
Seat 5 – liberace – 3,695,805 chips
Seat 6 – SirWatts – 2,605,801 chips
Seat 7 – bgitty – 1,492,954 chips
Seat 8 – JuneauJyack – 1,330,928 chips
Seat 9 – $harKK – 981,154 chips
Obviously, all players were very shortstacked which resulted in a very short-lived final table. The last two players battling were bgitty with 9,464,564 chips and JuneauJyack with 5,470,436 chips. JuneauJyack battled to bring stacks back to even and both players quickly agreed at a deal awarding $79,441.36 to each player with an extra $6000.01 set aside for the winner. JuneauJyack took a lead over bgitty and shoved with 4h3c. Bgitty put his tournament life at stake and called with KcTh and saw a Tc7h8c flop give him the commanding lead. A 6c on the turn gave JuneauJyack a gutshot straight draw and the 5s completed that straight draw. JuneauJyack got very lucky and won the tournament and $85,441.37. The rest of the final table results were as follows:
1st – JuneauJyack – $85,441.37
2nd – bgitty – $79,441.36
3rd – SirWatts – $50,181.60
4th – $harKK – $34,941.92
5th-Mr Swatch – $25,986.90
6th-liberace – $20,012.90
7th – hook2120 – $14,038.90
8th – PiRaToS14 – $8,662.30
9th – MSU10s – $5,077.90

Best Ways to Promote Employee Wellness in the Workplace

Healthy living has become an increasingly popular interest among individuals of all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds. From watching the types of foods they eat to engaging in more exercise and physical activities, people are becoming more conscious of their health as a whole and are constantly seeking new opportunities to improve overall. If you are among the millions of Americans who have suffered a job-related injury, you need to make sure you hire a philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyer to help you have a clear understanding of your legal rights.

This presents a prime opportunity for employers to also show their staff that they care about their well being. Not only can promoting and encouraging employee wellness help improve employee morale, but it can also minimize time lost due to illness and improve workplace productivity.

Getting Started….

There are plenty of ways an employer can begin encouraging employee wellness within the workplace. It is ideal to sit down with managers and/or the human resources department to come up with the most feasible options for your place of business. Below are a few suggestions on how you can begin:

1. Education

One of the easiest ways to encourage your employees to maintain a healthy quality of life is through education. When employees are made aware of the various options they have as it pertains to their well-being, they are more likely to want to get involved. Great ways to provide employees with health or wellness education could include: providing educational materials such as flyers, brochures, and pamphlets, asking healthcare professionals to pay a visit and educate staff on their specialties (i.e. nutritionist, yoga instructor, Weight Watchers representative).

2. Encourage Employees to Utilize Their Breaks

As much as you might admire an employee that comes in the crack of dawn, works through their lunch, and heads home just before 9pm, if they’re not taking their allotted breaks, chances are they aren’t getting the proper nutrition and exercise they need during the day. Also, make sure that you are getting the health of your employees at check MyDay is one such example to keep their eye sight at check. Managers should make a point of trying to encourage their staff to eat breakfast and lunch, and even take an occasional walk around the office to rest their eyes and rejuvenate.

3. Provide Healthy Food Choices in the Workplace

Instead of stopping off at the nearest donut shop and brining in donuts and coffee for the staff to enjoy, why not find healthier alternatives? In common meeting areas such as the cafeteria or boardrooms, employers can encourage employee wellness by having healthy food choices for the staff. Instead of a tray of donuts, you could opt for something like a veggie tray with dipping sauces or a cheese and cracker tray. Rather than having vending machines filled with sugary drinks, you could opt for something healthy for your staff such as water coolers.

Money savings tip: According to the makers of the Quench office water cooler, companies can save as much as 20% to 50% by cutting out bottle water service and investing in bottleless water coolers.

4. Promote Exercise

Employees are generally sitting in front of a computer for a better part of the day which can lead to various work related injuries including muscle pain, eye strains, carpel tunnel, and more. Encouraging employees to get moving is a great way to improve their overall health. There are several options when it comes to promoting exercise including: working with local gyms to get discounted memberships, having an instructor come to the office and offer classes during lunch breaks, or creating your own internal exercise routines such as weekly walks.

5. Be Mindful of Mental Health as Well

Work related stress, stress from home, depression, anxiety, etc, can all take a toll on an employee. As an employer, it is a good idea to be mindful of your staffs’ mental health as well. Try to create a safe working environment with an open door policy that allows employees to talk to you about their concerns. Minimizing the stress can also be addressed by having periodic meetings where employee concerns are heard. Lastly, be sure that you provide your staff with information on outside sources they can reach out to for assistance such as therapists, support groups, and more.

6. Healthy Competition is Always a Bonus

Who doesn’t like a little friendly competition from time to time? Competition can often motivate us to do things we wouldn’t otherwise do. Create various competitions throughout your office. For example, you might have a weight loss contest by departments. The department that loses the most weight at the end of a certain period of time will win some comp time, a gift certificate to eat at a nice restaurant, etc.

Another suggestion might be to have a cook off in the office. Have staff sign up to cook a certain healthy dish and have a few managers be the judge. The person that has the best recipe can win a cash prize, or something of that nature. Anything to get everyone involved is a great way to encourage wellness and promote healthy competition in the office.

7. Don’t Forget to Include Management

In order for your employees to be encouraged by your wellness ideas it will be important for management to get involved as well. Company leadership will need to demonstrate the importance of improved health in the workplace by supporting the various options offered.

Designing employee wellness programs can really work to your advantage. When deciding which options will work best for your place of business, be sure to get the input of others for a diverse set of ideas. Also, don’t be afraid to work with other businesses in the community such as healthcare facilities, gyms, and medical specialists to provide as many opportunities as you can to your employees.

With time you will begin to see a difference in the workplace as a whole. As the saying goes, “You’re only as strong as your weakest link” … so why not invest in making sure that each and everyone one of your employees is as strong as they can be physically and mentally?

A day In The Life Of An Affiliate Marketer

Being in the affiliate marketing business is not that hard now with the internet at your disposable. It is much easier now compared to the days when people have to make use of the telephones and other mediums of information just to get the latest updates on the way their program is coming along.
So with technology at hand, and assuming that the affiliate is working from home, a day in his or her life would sound something like this. If you are looking forward to translate this content, contact Translation Agency UK

Upon waking up and after having breakfast, the computer is turned on to check out new developments in the network. As far as the marketer is concerned there might be new things to update and statistics to keep track on.
The site design has to be revised. The marketer knows that a well-designed site can increase sign ups from visitors. It can also help in the affiliate’s conversion rates.
That done, it is time to submit the affiliate program to directories that lists affiliate programs. These directories are means to attract people in joining your affiliate program. A sure way of promoting the affiliate program.
Time to track down the sales you are getting from your affiliates fairly and accurately. There are phone orders and mails to track down. See if they are new clients checking the products out. Noting down the contact information that might be a viable source in the future.
There are lots of resources to sort out. Ads, banners, button ads and sample recommendations to give out because the marketer knows that this is one way of ensuring more sales. Best to stay visible and accessible too.
The affiliate marketer remembered that there are questions to answer from the visitors. This has to be done quickly. Nothing can turn off a customer than an unanswered email.
To prove that the affiliate is working effectively and efficiently, inquiries would have to be paid more attention on. Nobody wants to be ignored and customers are not always the most patient of all people. Quick answer that should appear professional yet friendly too.
In the process of doing all the necessities, the marketer is logged on to a chat room where he or she interacts with other affiliates and those under that same program. This is where they can discuss things on how to best promote their products.
There are things to be learned and it is a continuous process. Sharing tips and advices is a good way of showing support. There may be others out there wanting to join and may be enticed by the discussion that is going on. There is no harm in assuming what opportunities ahead.
The newsletters and ezines were updated days ago, so it is time for the affiliate marketer to see if there are some new things happening in the market. This will be written about in the marketer’s publication to be distributed to the old and new customers.
These same publications are also an important tool in keeping up to date with the newly introduced products. The marketer has put up a sale and promotion that customers may want to know about. Besides, they have to keep up with the deadline of these sales written in the publications.
It is that time to show some appreciation to those who have helped the marketer in the promotions and sale increase. Nothing like mentioning the persons, their sites and the process they have done that made everything worked.
Of course, this will be published in the newsletters. Among the more important information that have been written already.
The marketer still has time to write out recommendations to those who want credible sources for the products being promoted. There is also time to post some comments on how to be a successful affiliate marketer on a site where there are lots of wannabees.
Two objectives done at the same time. The marketer gets to promote the product as well as the program they are in. Who knows, someone may be inclined to join.
Time flies. Missed lunch but is quite contented with the tasks done. Bed time..
Ok, so this may not be all done in a day. But then, this gives you an idea of how an affiliate marketer, a dedicated one that is, spends the marketing day.
Is that success looming in the distance or what?

Holland Government Approves Online Poker

Holland appears to be heading in the same direction as Spain and Great Britain. The Dutch government will begin allowing online gambling via its licensed land-based Holland Casino it was announced this week. It is expected that online poker will be available to Dutch residents from around June this year.

Online gambling ban in the US to be reversed?
– They don’t have a chance in hell!
A column in the Las Vegas Sun Newspaper this week written by Jeff Simpson suggests that it is unlikely the US online gaming ban will be reversed. Jeff, who was named the Sun’s business editor in 2004, is the executive editor of the Sun’s sister publication, In Business Las Vegas, writes a column for the paper every Sunday, based on behind-the-scenes happenings in the gaming industry.

In Jeff’s column this week, he writes;

American Gaming Association President Frank Fahrenkopf told me last week that if online poker players are confident they can persuade Congress to pass a law that would define poker as a game of skill, they’re sadly mistaken.

The poker players, online poker rooms, and poker publishers hope that the recent changes in congressional leadership will prompt legislators to reverse the impact of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, which caused the leading online poker room to stop taking action from Americans and made funding and withdrawing money from online poker accounts more cumbersome.

A law that defined poker as a game of skill would exempt online poker from the UIGEA.
The climate on Capitol Hill is not favorable for any pro-Internet gambling legislation, he said.

“They don’t have a chance in hell,” Fahrenkopf said.

The AGA supports a congressionally mandated study of online gambling to see whether technology exists to make sure customers are playing from jurisdictions that allow betting, keep underage bettors from wagering and limit problem gambling. If the study determines that the technology exists to provide those safeguards, then a law could be passed allowing individual states to decide whether to offer online gambling.

Fahrenkopf acknowledged that even if those two hurdles are cleared, it is unlikely that states would set tax rates low enough to compete with the barely regulated and taxed casino and poker sites that now proliferate.

Why choose online casino gaming over other types of gambling?

There are a great many reasons why it makes more sense, both from a time point of view as well as a money making perspective, to choose casino gaming like togel hongkong hari ini over sports gambling. If you are a relative beginner to the world of gambling then you’re more than likely going to have less luck and therefore less big wins putting money on the result of football matches. You would be much more likely to win big time if you were putting your money into a slot machine or a game of blackjack at a place like Lucky Nugget. The odds are better, for one thing, but the main reason is that without some serious background knowledge you’re going to be left floundering in the world of sports gambling.

Fun is another reason why it makes sense to choose casino gaming. Putting money onto a horse race can be exciting, and watching the horses cross the finish line can boost your adrenaline like nothing else. But once it’s over, it’s over. Slot machines give you a much smaller boost of adrenaline every single time the barrels stop turning. Over time however, this small amount can add up and you can walk away having had a much better experience. You might not have won anything either way, but you will have had just as much fun on a slot machine and for a much longer length of time.

Gambling in general can be exciting. It requires, in some cases, an iron will and a determination that you won’t see in many other pastimes, and when this determination pays off it can be the most thrilling experience of your life. As with any other form of entertainment it all depends upon what you hope to get from the experience. Now that casino gaming is available online and accessible from wherever you are via your phone, is fast becoming the way of the future.

The High Stakes Rail – 12/13/09-12/19/09

This week seemed to be a break in the monstrous pots that we’ve become accustomed to. With the largest pot at $200,000, Isildur1’s dropping down to the $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha tables this week was definitely felt. The big winner this week was Brian Townsend taking down huge hands in Pot-Limit Omaha. However, he was not the recipient nor was he involved in this week’s largest hand.

The largest hand this week was between DjAdi and durrrr on a $500/$1000 No Limit Hold ‘Em on Full Tilt Poker. On the button, DjAdi raised to $3,000 with 9d8c and durrrr called with Js7s. The 9s8h8s flop was huge for DjAdi giving him a full house, eights full of nines. The flop gave durrrr a gut-shot straight flush draw, and a flush would cripple him for sure. Durrrr check-raised DjAdi to $14,800 and DjAdi three-bet to $28,500. On a semi-bluff, durrrr went all-in for DjAdi’s $97,000 stack, but DjAdi had the third nuts and was not going to fold. Neither the turn nor river were a Ts and DjAdi won the $200,000 pot.

The rest of this week’s hands were all played at Full crypto gambling $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha tables. On the button, Brian Townsend raised to $1,800 with QdQc6h2c and Isildur1 three-bet to $5,400 with QsJc9d7d. Brian Townsend called and saw the Qh5s4s flop give him a set of queens. Isildur1 bet $7,200 with his pair of queens and Townsend raised to $21,000 with his monster to which Isildur1 called. The Jd on the turn gave Isildur1 top two-pair. Unfortunately, he was still behind Townsend’s set of queens. Isildur1 check-raised his $72,390.50 stack all-in and Townsend called. The Tc missed Isildur1 and Townsend raked in the $197,581 pot.

In another pot between the two high-stakes players, Isildur1 raised on the button to $1,800 to which Townsend three-bet to $5,400 with AdKhJdTh and Isildur1 called. The JcAh6h flop was huge for Townsend giving him top two-pair and the nut flush draw. He bet $6,800 and Isildur1 called. The 2s was a blank and both players checked. The Qh gave Townsend the nut flush, but Townsend chose to be tricky and check-raise Isildur1’s $21,600 bet with a shove worth $83,094.50. Isildur1 called and saw the bad news. He mucked and Townsend brought in another huge pot worth $190,589

Townsend and Isildur1 produced another huge pot when Townsend was dealt AhAd9s6h on the button and Isildur1 held another huge hand, KhKd8d6d. Townsend raised to $1,800 and Isildur1 raised to $5,400. Three raises later and the stacks were all-in. The pot was worth $186,150. Unfortunately for Isildur1, the Jd7sJs9hQh board totally missed him and Townsend took in the pot.

This week was a little less exciting than previous weeks with Isildur1 going down a level to the $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha tables. Will he move back up to the $500/$1000 tables this week? Will he turn his luck around any time soon? FlopTurnRiver will keep you posted next week with another installment of the High Stakes Rail.
