Weekend Football

The big game of the weekend in the EPL is of course the Man Utd - Arsenal clash at Old Trafford; with the bookies tending to slightly favour the home team over the free scoring Gunners. One to avoid for accumulator types, but tempting in a single / small stakes double is the draw, which is available for 11/5 with William Hills. Last season Arsenal took 4 points from the Champions, and I can see a share of the spoils being the result after 90 minutes tomorrow. If I was to stick my neck on the line I would predict a 1-1 scoreline. How contentious would an Eduardo penalty be to seal that one ?!

After giving the football betting a miss last Saturday after suffering from the usual "One result always lets you down" syndrom the week before. (Two trebles and a four-fold, all let down by my bankers; of course Villa at home to Wigan being one of them). I will however be enjoying a small tickler on the following tomorrow. Prices quoted are with William Hill. Short odds most of them, I realise; but I could really do with some points on the board rather than be too greedy !

Bolton - LIVERPOOL (8/15)
NEWCASTLE - Leicester (4/6)
BRADFORD - Torquay (EVS)

ABERDEEN - Motherwell (4/5)
Bristol City - MIDDLESBROUGH (13/10)
Colchester Utd - LEEDS (6/5)

Man Utd - Arsenal Draw (11/5)

Thanks for reading, and good luck all !

William Hill. Best prices: fact.

William Hill. Worst staff: fact.

In seriousness, how can you produce such a general statement?

I like Aberdeen today too, but I'll be taking the 11/10 with PP - significantly better than WH.

I like Sheffield Wednesday @ Plymouth - 15/8.

And I'm not being picky but I might back Kilmarnock aswell today but not at the 4/5 with WH when they are bigger in a lot of other places.

To be honest, I've found Totesport to be good with their footie prices, but cos I'm lazy, it's a toss up between Chavbrookes or Willy Hills for me, as they're the closest bookies to my local. Always put my bets on in town as it's an excuse for a cheeky Saturday afternoon pint or two while the results roll in !

It's funny really, because you can't produce such a general statement. Fair play to the marketing bods for trying.

Next time you pass a Hills shop, look closely at the "Best Prices - Fact" poster in the window and take note of the asterisk.

Then read the small print at the bottom. It's ridiculous :D

Sorry guys, those tips were bloody awful. Some pretty unpredictable stuff.

Good shout from Scott on the Pigs, sorry, Owls. I got them into a line. Which was let down by 'Boro !

The course of a game of Texas Hold'em

Each game of Texas Hold'em starts with two paris "blind". The player to the left of the dealer put the "small blind", which is half the minimum bet that was set before the start of the game. The player to the left of the player who placed the "small blind" place the "big blind", which is equivalent to the minimum bet. The third player to the left of the dealer begins by following the first round of paris.

In Texas Hold'em, the first round of paris ends with the player who placed the small blind. The player who placed the big blind can either raise or "to speak" if the player before him followed. In Texas Hold'em, how word means to refuse to bet.

After the last player has completed his game, the new dealer (the player who was the dealer button - in this case, the dealer button was the small blind, as Texas Hold'em is played in the same direction as the clockwise) now reveal three cards face up. These three cards in Texas Hold'em are called the "flop". The second round of paris then starts always with a limit of $ 2 paris.

When the second round is completed, the dealer reveals a fourth card, called the "turning point". Under the rules of Texas Hold'em, the limit is now $ 4. After the fourth round, the dealer will announce the fifth and final community card face up. This card in Texas Hold'em is called the Learn poker portal.

After the fifth round of paris is completed, players now have enough cards to form their hand. The player with the best hand wins the game of Texas Hold'em and won the pot.
